Hackrs I don't know what to do. Help!

So here’s my situation:

I live in SoCal (LA County). I currently have a 2015 VW e-golf SEL which is being leased at 316/month and is up in May. I also have a 2016 Volvo V60 which is at 334/month and is due up in March. The Volvo has 800 miles left on the lease (less after today) and the VW has about 1200 miles left. In other words, I’m screwed as far as mileage (my commute went from 20 miles round trip last year to 64).

My heart wants to just eat the ~$2k left on the Volvo right now and lease or purchase a 2017/18 Audi A4 2.0t Quattro Premium Plus with the Sport Plus Package (Manual transmission, sport bits, alcantara seats and trim etc). This would be ~$600/month with drive offs on a 51k MSRP (I know, over 1%)

My brain tells me to do one of the following things:

(1) Drive the VW as much as I can since the miles are cheaper and since I charge for free at work, eat excess mileage;
(2) Get one of Chevysales girl’s Bolt LTs right now and drive that, get nicer car when the VW is up in the summer;
(3) lease a cheaper Audi that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles I want;
(4) Something else?


i say you should use a pull ahead program offered by on of the brands. idk which one has it honestly but at least like that you will get a new car and not be fined for the miles. i don’t remember if infiniti still offers there 5 or it was 6 month pull ahead.

When it comes to cars and/or money, follow your brain. The new car smell wares out so fast you won’t remember it was new in two month.
Besides, Volvo still have a pretty good pull ahead right now - https://www.volvocars.com/us/cars/new-models/s90/s90-offer
