    I've got this duplex thats been vacant for a while, costing me ~$1700/month, and it looks like I just got it sold. If/when it closes and I get the fucking thing off my books I'm thinkin about treating myself and leasing a 335i...

    Thing is I just bought a new daily driver (98 540i 6-speed). I like it alot, and it serves my needs quite well, but at the same time its ten years old. I've never bought a new car before, and I've never financed/leased a car before (always bought used and paid cash), and I kinda want to. I got a great deal on it so I know I can get my money back out of it(the 540i), maybe even make a little bit...

    My insurance will go up significantly but I'm thinking the increase will be offset by the lack of maintenance expenses...

    What would you do?

    What were you driving before?

    I'm sure mine would go up, based on the value of the vehicle and the increased coverage required by the lease...

    335 is the greatest car known to man, its sheer driving brilliance. however leasing is FTL.

    I'm obviously not gonna spend that much on a lease, I'm just using the fact that I'm getting that expense off my books every month to justify an extravagant expense:o

    Leasing is the only way I'd do it. Makes sense for me.

    Thats the primary reason I'm leasing, but if it costs me $1000/month forget it. Thats ludicrous for a ~$40k car. I'll spend $600-700, no more.

    Leasing makes more sense than buying, especially when it comes to a car that is always going to lose its value. I've never got why people are so averse to leasing.

    And the car quickly gets outdated. Leasing FTW.
     
  22. That;'s because leasing used to suck but it has changed

    oh and of course. OTers are completely retarded when it comes to money

    I leased my 335i. I don't regret it at all.

    I just wish that the floor mat didn't get stuck on the clutch.
