Do your math. Calculate how much you will spend on the lease then how much to buy the car out vs just buying the car outright. Make sure to include taxes and title fees for all the transaction Currently, there are different incentives for leasing vs buying car and if the incentives for leasing are large enough (as it is with some cars right now), it can become cheaper to lease and buy than to buy outright.

If you really like that particular car, and you plan on following through with the finance after the lease to make it more affordable, otherwise you are throwing your money away...... Emotional spending is the worst type of spending you can do. It will cause you to make terrible finacial choices.....
