Hi gents, I'm hoping I can help a buddy out here. He is contemplating leasing a new i3 which, according to dealer sites, can be had for $300 per month over a three-year term. I financed my 2016 228i M Sport and know relatively little about leasing; I don't know enough about the effect of things like the money factor or the residual (although I know this can trip people up at the end of the term). As I said, rates quoted online are $300 pm and a residual value of $28K. MSRP appears to be $42K - $47K depending on equipment, such as a range extender kit. Since I don't know much about leasing and even less about electric cars (and whatever buyer incentives might exist for them in CA), can anyone advise my friend how to approach this transaction? It would be very valuable to him to get unbiased advice from knowledgeable people here rather than rely on dealer personnel. Thanks!
