Try "Ask-a-Dealer" forum for lease terms.

Early 2014's didn't have digital dash. There may be other changes in '15 and '16.

"but you agreed to $650/mo (verbally) with the salesman".... as if this matters AT ALL.

OP, you'll get the $590/mo. deal if you just remain patient (i.e. do nothing). The other options for the...

I think your payment is too high, given that you can probably get a new one for about that with no mileage issues. Maybe throw in $1-2K and get the effective payment down to $6xx/mo. You'll get...

Yes, assuming you are replacing another 20" wheel. If you starting with a smaller wheel, the math would be different.

Should be 3.5mm higher (front) and 3.0mm higher (rear) as that's the increase in sidewall height vs stock.

Are they claiming they to have sales tax credits to use in this deal? If so, then they're not really giving you a $3,100 discount.

It's true - the reduction happened last December, I think.

Same experience here. Mostly noise, very little cooling.

If it is already very hot in the interior, they're almost counterproductive as they seem to blow the heat from the seats themselves.
