Re: Remarkable end-of-lease buyout offers from BMWFS

When we checked with BMWFS about purchasing our I3 last week they quoted a $10k customer incentive to buy it. We checked 2 months ago when it came off lease and the residual was too much versus market value, so we decided to order and purchase, not lease a new I3s. We were given a July production s...

Re: Remarkable end-of-lease buyout offers from BMWFS

I contacted BMWFS about the buyout price of my 2018 i3 S lease, which matures in October. A representative said that, currently, any lease-end purchase promotions are applied within the final four months of a lease.

Re: 2019 New i3s purchase advice request

…What is a reasonable amount to expect off of MSRP? $4,000? $5,000? $6,000? I negotiated 7% off MSRP near the end of model-year 2018 on a custom-ordered i3 Sport.
