I believe there is a breaking point on sale price of car as the price goes up, it is more beneficial to buy miles versus lease them.

That's what i am trying figure out.
Okay, so same car with .15 cent miles instead of .20

10,000 mile lease = $471/month
15,000 mile lease = $502/month

10,000 mile lease at $471 + $125 of miles = $596/month
15,000 mile lease at $502 + $62 of miles = $564/month

You still lose. At these residuals it would break even at an $80k car, but chances are that $80k car will have a higher residual spread.
