2018 BMW i3 ($49,850 MSRP) Lease Deal Socal $3,900 DAS, $250 for 30 month



After communicating with multiple BMW dealers I found the perfect lease. My goal was 12% and I was getting offers of 8-10%. The dealer I ended up going to had an original offer of $539 a month for 36 months and 12k miles. I ended up getting the 12% off, MSRP $49,895, discounted price $44,000.
I had $9,000 in rebates ( USAA, College Grad, and Federal rebate)

$3,900 DAS will be recouped in CA credit, BMWCCA membership rebate, and SDGE rebate in 2019.
Final out the door payment was 0 down $250 a month for 30 months and 10k miles a month. I think I did ok and the salesperson said this was her one digger of the month since I basically got the car for so cheap. However, some numbers didn’t seem right, but it’s the number I was shooting for so I didn’t squabble over 6 bucks a month.

Congrats! That’s a great deal, especially once you account for all the rebates you’ll get back, not to mention the gas savings.


sounds like a great deal. can you please share the dealer’s info?
I am looking for one.

Thank you!


please share dealer info. Looking for 1 as well. Thanks!


I ended up getting the car a BMW El Cajon. Check out BMW Escondido they were close to what I wanted. Do not try with BMW San Diego, especially Dan Brummet because he was a pompous ass!


Congrats! I was not able to get 12% off with a buy rate MF. They were inflated MF just like yours. I was able to get a little over 10% off a $52k i3 REx for $202/mo.



202 a month before taxes? can you please post a bit details of your lease numbers?


Never mind , saw your post. On another thread. Thanks.


My deal from 4 months ago.


can you please share the dealers info? I am looking to lease an i3 as well… LA/Orange County Area.
I went to the Creviers and they told $4000 down, $410/month plus tax.

i would appreciate your help!
Thank you!


I ended up leasing from BMW EL Cajon,
Tamara Taylor, Internet Sales. I was close with BMW Escondido, but the vehicle didn’t have all the options I was looking for. Good luck.


Update: just noticed on BMWCCA they discontinued the $1,000 incentive rebate for the i3 for 2019. Bummer.


Wow that sucks. Fortunately the SCE rebate has been bumped up to $1,000.


I contacted BMW Escondido and was given this quote

MSRP: $46,095.00
Dealer Discount: $2,458.00
Selling Price: $43,637.00
Term: 36 Months
Mileage: 10,000 / YR.
Total Due at Lease Signing: $3,900.00

Money Factor: .00188
Monthly Payment: $398.22 + Tax ($434. Inc)

I’m not sure why there is such big difference on the monthly payments (other than the terms --36 vs your 30 mos).


Lower money factor for 30 months, higher residual, and I also had USAA/College Grad instant rebates.


There is also a high monthly cost for 36 months vs 30 months. With BWMCCA no longer offering the $1000 rebate for this car, you’ll find wknapp0924’s deal hard to replicate.
