Buy or lease, you can calculate it down to a monthly "cost" either way. Pick whichever option makes the most sense for your particular situation when you balance the monthly cost, your plans for how long you'll keep the car, etc.
Well... In the case of my relative's 2001 TT that got turned in with 75k, burnt clutch and three deer hits it included a pretty nice bill on the end of it too. Its a really taste thing and often times taxes... I know that the golden rule with planes is to never own one... but on the same spirit, you wouldn't want a house either so someone else will mow the lawn, even though you're really paying out the teeth for it, its just a simplified payment.
