I'm thinking same re wheels (I think that's covered above).

How much work (in dollars) to swap an exhaust? I'm clearly clueless re that kind of stuff. But the hit is so hard you are probably right.

I would love painted calipers but the upgraded brakes don't make sense on a lease (to me at least).

All the reason why you hear mods listed in the pro column when comparing buying to not leasing. There is a huge thread going re that already though.
