I don't know that leasing has any "long run" appeal, but in the short term, you get a better car for a lower payment. Sure, you don't own it. Granted, you have to worry about mileage and wear and the...

That quote is from when I first got the car. I guess I was really impressed with myself that I didn't have to get the "low-end" BMW.

People still give hand-written estimates? I'd prefer even a shade-tree mechanic that could give me an estimate written in Word to a "dealer" with a hand-written estimate. But, maybe I'm being elitist.
