I lease (first time I have ever done so; over the last fifteen years, I have historically bought used luxury foreign, but kept only a couple of years): 39 months, 7500 miles per year. Price per month was superior to buying out right on time. (Lots of retirement income but not sufficient bank to buy outright). Pretty good deal; and I can buy it at the end (or let it go to the lot and buy it) for what a four year car with less than 30000 miles would cost. Wanted a brand new car; having gotten too old to work on used cars, this was the most affordable solution. Even if I don't like the car after a year or so, the walk out is cheaper than trading . . . .
