So I'm in love with the i8 in a donington grey color.

However- not sure where the deals are at the moment considering there are 318 (per cars.com)of them sitting on the lots.

Would love to know what others are getting quoted (or if any of you work at a dealer, shoot me a quote if willing to discount)

Considering the amount there are out there- lack of demand for them- they should start coming down in price soon, I think.

following; I love too Donington gray; it was on my X6M and it's amazing; currently I'm in process of assuming a short term lease, i8 in blue color and if I like the i8 I will probably get into a Donington gray one once this lease is up

Last year- there were 100-150 i8s on the lot and there were some solid deals, however I too was in the middle of a lease.

The last time there was a massive discounting where people were paying 2k drive off and 1k a month on 24 mo leases was 2 years ago when there were about 500 of them around the states.

So I'm assuming it might be something like that. Maybe not as good, however- a bargain compared to what they were a few months back.

That donington grey seriously makes the i8 look drop dead gorgeous. You've got good taste

A few months now.

In the summer there was around 50-70. Now there's 320.

Supply>demand. (Also probably because of bmws currently residual programs/incentives)

Yeah/ consistently in the mid 50s- with zero discounting up until now.

I see some in the mid 130s- but for these to be a good deal- they need to drop to the 115-125k range with the current residuals

Seems like deals are out there, but not good enough for me to be interested yet. A dealer quoted me a 2019 base model lease (36/10) for <$130k with mid 50s residual and about a 160 money factor.

$1500 plus tax with only first month down. Not the worst deal of all time, but not the best either in my opinion.

Good on you for not giving in.

As you said, not bad. But there will be deals to be had with the holidays coming up
