Problem with purchasing in some states is that you have to pay sales tax on the entire amount...if you only plan to keep it 2-3yrs, then you'd be better of leasing and paying tax (which could be 6, 7, or 8%) only on the monthly payments.

Plus with the MSD program, your final lease "interest rate" ends up being about 2.4%, more than the 0.9% for sure, but not sky-high like 5% or 7%.

I myself was wondering if it's worth going into a fully loaded "s" ($76k MSRP) on 36mo lease. Thinking I'm better of just going with a loaded lower-end model...which would probably be $63k MSRP, and has a 1% higher residual. Only thing I would get is more "power" with the top-end "s" trim...and I don't know if it's worth an extra $150/mo (though that probably doesn't sound like much does all adds up!). Looks like the front bumper is also a bit different on the top-end model.
