I’m now self-employed and my CPA says I should lease my next car rather than buy, which I pretty much agree with from a tax planning standpoint.
However, I drive about 15k miles per year, and am undecided if it makes more sense to buy vs lease a Q7 Prestige with an MSRP of about $78k. I’ve been seeing the residual value is terrible if I go with 36/15k, and it appears to be quite a bit lower than a loaded X5.
At what point does one draw the line and decide to either lease or buy? I can’t seem to find that particular line myself.
I know I could get a premium plus and it’d increase the RV by 4% or so, and I would consider doing so if that helps with any of your input.
