My 2015 I3 lease ends at the end of October. Love my I3 and want another, should I wait for the 2018 or look for deals on a 2017. Thanks for any input.
That's entirely up to you, but MY'18 starts production in November, so you wont be able to get your hands on one in the US until Dec/jan at the earliest. And that timing assume your dealer has one of the early allocations, and will give the first one to you: f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1332642
If you have other cars to tide you over, MY'18 should get a few upgrades, chief among them the "S" model with more torque and better suspension. For a price. If the above does not appeal to you, you might as well snag a MY'17 car.
There are plenty of deals on the '17 just starting. California has two different utilities offering $10K off for starters. I have a '14 and a '17 and the difference is night and day. The changes to the '18 will be small, including changing the iDrive to the new version, and offering the Sport.
After having our '17 now for 9 months, we couldn't be happier. It handles better and has almost double the range realistically from our '14.
