In a purchase I think the fed subsidy is in the form of a tax credit on your taxes (vs a lease it shows up as a cap cost reduction to your lease, since BMW gets the tax credit), and the CA subsidy...

As per original post, the selling price is $46,xxx. If that is true, then you're getting Msrp minus most of the tax credit which BMW is claiming for themselves and passing along to you. If the...

You don't get a tax credit on a lease. BMW does and it either is reflected in the final sales price or it isn't. I think you are getting an Msrp deal, with BMW passing along some of the tax credit as...
