That's a pretty hefty assumption.

Flex can be advantageous in some situations. It's just new for the i3/i8 so I doubt anyone has gotten a quote for it.

OP, post your quote and someone here...

ask to see the monthly rate sheet. It can't be posted on this forum, but the dealer can just show it to you in person. A salesperson can't lie/make up a rate sheet from BMW.

Have you ever thought about asking your dealer for the information? Most dealers will tell you the MF, Resid, Invoice, etc. if you ask. It's a lot easier than stressing online about it. :D
