2015 vs new body style 2016

so I've been looking to get another lease car as my 2012 750li lease comes due and initially I was certain I was just going to grab the new body style 2016. After much talk with dealers though I'm starting to wonder if thats the best idea given that first model year 7's have been notorious for problems.

so I'm kicking around the idea of doing a 2015 2 year lease then rolling into a new body style in 2017 (18 model).

Thoughts?

I would do a 3 year lease, depending on rates. Lease rates usually drop after the second year, not after the first, for a new model. But you will be driving an "old" car for an additional year.

Another strategy is to go down to a 5 series for 3 years. That car is newer than the 7.

If you're considering a '15 I'd suggest you look into '14 leftovers.. Great deals to be had

I think a 2 year lease on a 2015 might be a good proposition as there seems to be some excellent deals going on, and BMW has a 24 month lease program available at good rates. There are not many 2014's left, so you might not find what you want, and I think the 2014 lease program is best at 36 months. If you do the 24 month deal now, at lease end the 2017 model will be in the sweet spot for leasing (good residuals early in the model year) and the new model will have had a year+ in production to have, at least some, of the bugs ironed out. Just watch out for the down payment trap, remember, your true monthly cost will be the lease payment plus the down payment/number of months, so you will want to put minimal down. Multiple security deposits to buy down the rate is a better use of initial capital outlay - you get it back at lease end.

so I've been looking into this more and I'm really thinking I'm going to get a 2015 brand new (order it maybe?). So I spec'd one out at 103k (750li xdrive) on bmwusa. How much should I be able to get this car for these days? Also, could I get my lease even lower if I take euro delivery? i heard there are some amazing specials on 2015s right now since its the last year of the body style. Any thoughts?
