I use to be in the "buy" camp until I started to realize that I do not keep a car long enough to realize the benefits of buying a car. Ironically, I just turned in my 2010 E60 550i for the pull ahead. Residual on the car is over $45k+, just checked on kbb for the value in excellent condition for private party sale is only $37k+. Every option was checked off on the car except for cold weather and night vision. Even for those who wants to buy, lease and see how you like the car first and then buy after the lease ends. I did ED, my payments on the car totaled around $29k+ for 3 years. Even if I buy the car after CPO (which I would never do), it would be around $41K max. Sure, I could have limited the options added when I leased my car, but what fun would that be . If I were ever to buy a car, it'd be a Honda Accord with no gadgets and I would drive that thing to the ground.
