Accurate? Where was I not accurate? You are getting taken to the cleaners.

No way I'd pay $1135 per month for a 540 lease, especially one with only 12k miles per year.

I currently pay $840 per month for my 550, which had an $80K sticker, and I get 15k miles per year.

Ouch. You got hosed.

My monthly payment is almost the same as yours but my 550 had a sticker of $80K, and I get 15k miles per year.

Next time do a deal with a board sponsor.
