What exactly does the term residuals mean here ? Remaining value later ?
In simple terms, yes, the amount they say the car will be 'worth' at lease end.


You buy 30K car = you pay 30K

You lease 30K car that they say will be worth 12K = you pay 18K
You lease 30K car that they say will be worth 20K = you pay 10K

Everything else is just dressing, how much in fees, how much the car costs up front (yes, you could negotiate that 30K down to 28.5K if you are able) and how much in interest for that 18 or 10K loan, how your state deals with sales tax, and a bunch of other distractions.

Drive it like u stole it!

You shold negotiate the price of the car as if you are buying it, then you pay for the lease on what you have negotiated the price to be. You never lease a car for sticker. Just like you would never pay sticker for the car if you purchased it.
