Wich one would i choose?
The BMC Teamelite TE01 XT Di2 is the 2017 model wich i can get around 4000 euro/4000 dollar
The BMC Teamelite 03 THREE is the 2018 model and will cost around 1300 euro/1300 dollar

I know it is a big difference.
Alloy vs Carbon
Mechanical vs DI2

But i ask myself do i need such a expensive MTB.
For maintenance the di2 is maybe better?
There i am a true road racer i only want to have a MTB for when it is bad weather.
I'm not going to bike in the woods with this MTB. Only for wet roads and when it is raining so i have more grip on the Belgium roads and cobbles.

Just go with the 03-three... there's really no need for carbon/di2 if you're only training on the road in the wet.

Given the goal for this bike, did you consider a CX or gravel bike that just allows to to put on wider tires for more grip? This will also allow you to better mimic your road bike position on your bad weather bike to begin with.
