I almost leased my current 2011 335i. I was at the dealership when my car arrived from Germany deciding whether to buy or lease. In the end, I bought because I just didn't think the lease deal I was getting was very good. Leasing is quite complicated for those who don't understand it, and even if you do you have to be damn certain its right for you to take advantage of it. You can easily go wrong by leasing. I decided I wasn't Playboy enough to be leasing a new car every 3 years. Maybe in the future, but for now I'm happy with buying and knowing I can put however many miles on my car as I want. Also, I wasn't too comfortable with the idea that after paying $27K+ to lease a car for 3 years I give it back and have nothing in my hands to show for it. Buying at least I have the car as something to show for what I paid money on. It's simply about your perspective on how you look at it.
