Sorry I can't answer the lease question, but I can tell you that if it were me, I'd buy the exhaust outright and then before I turned the car back in, I'd have the stock exhaust put back on the car and then try to sell the PE - I'm sure someone would buy it and you could get some of your $ back... just my 2 cents...

Hi, thanks for the responses. To be clear, the car residual was increasing about $700 with the exhaust on not the part. I think the best bet is to go dealer installed, sell the standard exhaust at the beginning then swap out at the end. A bit of a pain changing exhausts but probably the most route financially.
