I keep reading about people putting down payments on a lease and I shake my head every time.

OP check the blue book and lease payoff on your car. If it's more than your lease payoff then take it to carmax and see if they will buy it off you. Congratulations, you just made $X.
Are people confusing PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) to lease. There is no option of buying a leased car in the UK, your name is not even the registered keeper. However PCP gives you the option of buying the car outright or returning the car at the end of the contact.
