    Wait time for new X is >1 year, but lease is coming up...

    My lease comes up in December of 2022. I'd like to upgrade to a new MX, but when I checked on delivery times just now, it says January 2023. Can I order a new one now, in the hope that there won't be too much of a gap between when my lease ends (12/20 I think) and when I get the new MX? Would...

    Does the financing choice affect delivery time?

    This is probably a long shot given how new the lease option is for the MY, but does anyone know whether your choice of payment (i.e., cash, loan, or lease) has any effect on the processing/delivery timeframe?
