So, I have a BMW i3 right now. The lease ends in just about 5 weeks. I'm an evening-of-3/31/16 reservationist and a California resident. When I made my reservation, I didn't think I'd getting a 3 until mid-to-late 2018. I figured I could buy something used for a year or so, then sell it when I get my 3. Now, unless the production timeline takes a big hit, I'm fairly confident I'll have the option to get one within the next 6 months or so. I've seen plenty of lease takeovers, but none are ever sub-12 months. The problem with buying something used in the mean time is taking such a big sales tax hit for such short term usage. I could buy the car, somehow sell it for the same price and still lose $4,000. What I would appreciate would be some options that I might not be aware of in terms of something in the mean time. There's the standard long-term rental from a normal rental car company option, but I highly value HOV lane access (130 mile roundtrip commute of which 99% is freeway driving). Does anyone know of some kind of long-term Model S rental that's not so exorbitant as paying the $100+/day rates on Turo? I'm willing to pay some kind of premium on such an odd situation, but $3k+ a month is obviously too much. Would appreciate any advice anyone has. Thanks!
