My advice, assuming that your baby is like most and won't arrive for 9 months, is to keep the car for as long as possible. At that time see if you really need to get out of the lease, or if you can make do with using a second car. The thing with a baby is that you tend to go out less and drive less.

Hey Chris....You're right about people wanting a brand new car and not used. I was more or less offering someone an opportunity for a 6er with very few miles at a price much less than what you can get nowadays, given current residual, mf and even incentives.

But you make some good points. And my wife has an A6, so the more I think about it I may just hold on to my car and use hers for baby transport. Plus, as much as I dont want to think about it, we probably won't be going out as much scary thought!

Thanks again
