Reminds me of that old joke...
There once was a woman who wrote the letter "W" on each butt cheek. She wasn't much to look at, but when she bent over...WOW!

Thanks everybody !! Too bad it was raining heavily when I picked up the car.. the car is kind of dirty now...didn't take any picture.

The paper work took about an hour I think.

By the way, the dealer asked if I want to lease...3 years 36,000 miles for $600/month with $1620 initial fees. If I finance, after I put donw $10,000, still have to pay $700 for 5 years. From the numbers he punched out (residual values, etc), I kind of agree with what he said "there's not a single disadvantage by leasing (in my case)" (cause if I chose to buy it at the end of the lease, I wouldn't lose money at all compare with if I finance the car.

He gave me 48 hours to think about it, if I don't get back to him, he'll go ahead with the financing.

What do you guys think ?

Congrats on the new car.

Leasing depends on how much you're going to drive and how long you really plan to keep your car. Although, you can get a 15K mile/yr lease or pay for additional miles later, if you find that you need it. Lot of other issues too, such as if the payments are deductible if the car is used for business.

You can go online to Edmunds.com and they have a whole section on leasing vs. purchasing.
