Best way to find 2019 Rex

Sun Oct 10, 2021 6:28 pm

After leasing the Fiat 500e twice now and selling my 330i I have been researching the best single car options. Not wanting to spend Tesla type money I think the 2019 Rex might be the ticket. Primarily as a local car with the ability to go 200 miles (1 way) on occasion.

I spoke with a couple BMW dealers and there are a few available but they said the prices you see advertised are what you pay. Roughly $35K out the door. My Fiat lease ends in January so no huge rush but wondering if anyone has opinions with purchasing certified dealer, Carvana, private.....
Should I wait a few months as more 2019 should be showing up after lease turn ins or just go for an available one now?
Is there a specific trim I should hold out for?

Thanks for sharing any experience that may help.

I’ve been back in the market recently so have been in contact with a number of Bay Area dealers. I previously leased 2014 and 2017 BEVs so I have very specific equipment requirements. In the past few days, a couple emailed with news of price reductions. Pure conjecture on my part but maybe the market is loosening up a bit?

I just purchased a 2019 I3s Rex with 13k miles from SF BMW for $35,200 OTD. All black/ black wheels. Looks perfect, like brand new. No sunroof.
They also have a 19 Rex S in gray for $34K before tax /lic. It has a sun roof. They couldn't find it yesterday and assumed it sold but it was getting maintenance/detailed. I am happy with the black and the grey would have been my second choice Not sure my wife and I like the drastic color difference on the hood.. Peter Pan San Mateo has a grey S also I looked at for the same price- no sunroof.

I am super happy with the choice. Both dealers said the S model tends to sell fast and can be difficult to find. Even if that is a bit of a sales pitch was was ready to pull the trigger. I pick it up tomorrow.
