Rate Lock Now?

Last day of February and trying to decide if a rate lock today would be advisable. I will need to order a new 3/4 series sometime in March to replace one that is coming off lease in May. Haven't been thrilled with Jan & Feb programs and hoping March/May will be better. Also, I am considering an '18 440i GC which has the new tiered residuals. Should learn more about this in March when the numbers come out.

Any thoughts on whether to lock today or just sit tight until next month?

Lock next month. Esp if you're leaning 18. Expiration on Feb lock will be end of April anyway and the car won't even be here. So there you go.

Good point. Hopefully the 4 series GC rates are favorable. Or maybe some juicy incentives!
