Gross Cap Cost 37,060 ($500 over ED invoice)
Cap Reduction 1500
Net Cap Cost $35,550
Money Factor .00111 (.00130 + .003 ED Bump -.00049 MSD)
Base Payment is approx 339/mo pre tax for 36 months 10k/yr (considering bumping this up to 12k)
As much as I would like to wait until summer to do ED, I am considering doing a winter delivery primarily for the cost savings. I fly frequently for work and have more miles than I will ever use, so my costs to do this would be minimal. I also have another vehicle to drive while the car is in transit back to the states.
I would love to hear some opinions on the lease terms and also input on options. I am pretty sure I will be adding Sport Auto since the cost is minimal and benefits are supposedly worth it.
Looks good to me. ED is a blast, you will have so much fun. Is the $1500 cap reduction a down payment? If so, I will keep that money as I think a down payment on a lease is not a good idea.
For options I will add DHP, it is really a nice feature.
