One more thought. The 2014 i3 did not go on sale in the US until May 2014. The bulk of the 3 year leased cars will only start appearing from May on. What we are looking at now are cars on two year...

Here in Southern California you can get a base level 2014 BEV i3 for well under $20K. There is one at a dealer (Long Beach BMW if I remember correctly) that is CPO at an asking price just under $17K....

At the moment there really aren't any deals on i3's. For a new 2017 you would be better off waiting until December to see if the incentives change.

As a 3GT owner I can confirm what you are hearing here. If the back seat room matters to you get the 3GT over the wagon. The space difference between them is fairly substantial. When I was buying I...

If you see an Estoril Blue one around that is probably me. The only other car I've seen around these parts was a white one.
