You seem like quite intelligent fellow, aware of this site and the pricing for 2018 guide and changes.
Why didn't you stop the ordering process at the dealer if they are "forcing" you to use the 2017 price guide, when you knew well that there were changes for 2018?

Secondly, have you contacted BMW consumer services and explained the "bait and switch" tactic and non refundable deposit policy of the dealer you are choosing to do business with?

Thirdly, Have you approached a different dealer? Consider talking directly to the sales manager, explain your situation at Dealer A, and your total displeasure with how they are conducting business. I would wager a different dealer would work quite hard to gain your $70k+ purchase and make up the $1000 non refundable deposit by additional discount or trade value.
