When looking into leasing options for the BMW i4 that include residuals, credits and incentives expected with the lease programs BMW will roll out, these numbers provide an early look at what could be available. Its based off of the M3 and M4 for 2021MY, and both models should have some overlap in MSRP with the i4. So as you can expect, so should the lease rates.

M3
15k miles / 53% residual
12k miles / 55% residual
10k miles / 56% residual
M3 Competition
15k miles / 52% residual
12k miles / 54% residual
10k miles / 55% residual

$500 loyalty credit (all M3)
M4
15k miles / 53% residual
12k miles / 55% residual
10k miles / 56% residual
M4 Competition
15k miles / 51% residual
12k miles / 53% residual
10k miles / 54% residual

More detail info on leasing the i4. Are people leaning towards leasing or buying? I am not usually a leasing person but not having to put down $25,000 to $30,000 to get lower payments interests me a lot. It sounds like that the $7500 tax credit will not apply to the lease however.

I had seen these offers when I gave my $1500, and was pretty excited with the offers you show here. I showed them to may dealer when I placed my order last week and let him know this is the deal I would like, he said dealers do not have to participate since the terms say "Dealer Suggested Contribution", and they do not plan to contribute to the cap cost reduction as shown above on these great lease deals down to the payments illustrated ?... Hoping that this gets cleared up before my car arrives, and BMW has dealers honor these lease offers for customers that ordered before January 3rd, especially if we lose the $7500 tax credit. These lease offer looks very attractive.

I don't think much of the current financial stuff on the US website is accurate for the i4 yet.
Or at least it and the ix are still not on the Military Program list, even after I've been verified as eligible by the site.

Not sure I understand all that, I understand the $3725 is just a nice way to say "downpayment", but does the $2150 dealer contribution means that the dealer makes $2150 less when you lease than when you buy it outright?

So I did the calculations for all the $ spent assuming you buy the car off at the purchase option price after the 3 years, and the lease total cost comes to $74,955. If you were to buy the car with the same cash down $3725, no dealer contribution, and pay it off in the 3 years with 1.99% APR, your payment would be $1941 and your total out of pocket for the 3 years $73,607, minus the $7500 tax credit if you pay enough income tax. Or, if consider the same cash down $3725, and you set a balloon payment equal to the Purchase Option at the end of year 3, with the same 1.99% APR, your payment drops to $880 and your total out of pocket becomes $74,802 minus the $7500 tax credit. So it looks like leasing is a decent deal if you are not eligible for the tax credit anyway, but the loss of the $7500 credit if you can claim it is a big chunk. I just used Excel's PMT function, I'm not sure I did it right, those of you with financial background should correct me.

BMW used to have good incentives and inflated lease residuals. If you wanted to keep a car for 6 years, it used to be more expensive to buy a car and keep it for 6 years than to lease and switch to a new car after 3 years.

It’s a seller markets now. Incentives and discounts are gone. Residuals are lower even if used car prices are higher. Plus, with electric cars you can only claim the tax rebate if the car is titled under your name. It doesn’t make sense to lease anymore.

Dealer contribution is a suggested dealer’s discount and we know we are not getting any of that.

It’s not for everyone…. Really depends on ones personal finances… business expense, etc. In my case, I get the itch for something different every 2-3 years and don’t want to deal with trade-in, etc…. Or that was my calculus with ICE… BEVs and the current used market has changed my thinking somewhat. At least with Tesla, the models are holding their value well, so it could be an option to buy vs lease,,, the downside is BEV technology is changing at a fairly rapid pace, between battery density, charging speed, bespoke platforms, new models entering the market, etc….. so those are considerations as well.

I leased my first Tesla because I was new to the BEV tech and wasn‘t sure if I was going to like it. I planned on buying the i4 M50 unless the lease rate was advantageous…. Which if the iX is any indication, I don‘t have high hopes.
