My parents, as Jews, would never buy a Ford because Henry Ford was a virulent anti-semite. Nonetheless, the comment about Ford-Werke is a bit unfair. It certainly did promote the Nazi war effort, but...

I can't comment on the rest, but never put money down on a lease. If you kick in $10k, say, and you total the car soon thereafter your 10K is gone.

i3 Safety features?

I see you can get a rear-view camera on the i3 but what about blind spot warning and adaptive cruise control? I couln't find anything about that on the BMWUSA website.

Consider joining the BMW Car Club of America. Then email Mike Miller for his old school maintenance schedule. You'll spend more on maintenance but less or repairs.

I had beige Dakota for 4 years on my F10. Wore jeans a lot without problems. But then I tend to wear stonewashed jeans. Maybe that makes a difference?

My wife refuses to drive my F30, and she refused my F10 before that. She drove my E60 once or twice and was afraid of it, especially the way the turn signals work.

I had ventilated seats on an '05 Lexus that worked pretty well. I had them on my '11 535i and they didn't work well at all.

I'd think you'd need new seats with ventilation built in.
