Need Advice: What's fun vs. What's the right thing to do

What's fun:
Take the new Bimmer up to Mount Washington for a weekend getaway with the Wife (downside: rock chips from the mountain roads, more mileage on the bimmer) (Upside: More fun driving those mountain roads in the bimmer)

What's probably the right thing to do
Use up the last 800 miles on the lease of the Mitsu before turning it in next week (or there about). (Upside and downside are reverse of the above)

What to do...

If I had only the one, I'd take the Bimmer without even a moment's thought.

But in this case, I'd abuse the car that's about to disappear.

When you're in one of your nostalgic moods, will you remember the great weekend with your wife driving to MT. WASH in the bimmer, or the rock chip you got while driving there?
