lease vs purchase + options reasoning

How do you guys reason getting a lease vs a purchase?

And does adding options / features /packages factor in?

For me, it's my first BMW, and the first time I decided to lease. I leased to keep price lower, and my wife's leased car was replaced with this one, she liked to lease before. I got it with few options. Reasoning being that I'm giving the car back. I don't want to pay inflated pricing to get a bunch of options that I'm going to give back.

I think I will get another BMW after this. I will probably buy it instead. I will try to keep it for a longish time. So I will add many more options. Since I will have it longer, I will enjoy those options longer. At this point, paying more for the car, because of packages or options makes sense.

Makes sense in my brain.
