For a lease to make sense it would either need to have low MF or high residual or a big % discount up front. Now the leasing market basically have none. Just go to one of the brokers here offering discounts and finance it. If you can not afford the financing monthly, then you should probably get a cheaper car in the first place, especially in the recent economic uncertainties
You were never at $1,1xx anyway. That was with $4,000 DAS. What does that make your effective payment?
That is a painful lease for this car. I was behind one in traffic today and have you seen what they did to the rear diffuser. Terrible
