Not on the BMW. Maintenance is covered for 5 years/50k miles. This is why BMW is such a common car to lease, and is also why folks generally do not buy them brand new, since they know all BMWs...

Since you mentioned that you've never tried a German car, and the overall cost is similar for both, then IMO the e-tron is the way to go.

Primary impact (at least for the center mounted exhaust) would be the inability to install a hitch. Other than that, I don't see any axle back exhaust affecting MPGs.
