It all depends on how long your are going to keep it. The problem I have with leasing is you never get rid of car payments. Sure, you pay a bit more buying it, but you still have a nice car after with no payments. You can always get a 3rd part warranty if anything happens. I don't like worrying about racking up the miles to avoid a big bill at the end of the lease. Leasing or buying is not for everyone. I see the pros and cons of each, but leasing is just renting a car and spending the money that you will never get back. It's like renting an apartment.

I'm 33, saved up $10.5K to put down on it, got a 2009 135i M-Sport package with only 11K miles on it in Dec, 2011.

Interestingly enough my insurance is only $8 more every 6months over my last car which was a Mazdaspeed6.

I was 24 when I picked her up in August.

I was 18 . . .

when my folks bought my 1975 Inka Orange 2002 for me (new).

I bought or leased the next twelve BMW's. I wanted to get a 135i when it was introduced, but I got so much flack from my sons that I leased yet another three series four door. Now that I'm an empty nester I am having fun with the modern 2002. It is much heavier, however with Dinan stage 2 it goes pretty good. - GJ

I am 21 in 3 months, and will start financing for a 135i a month after that. With my own earned cash too

I will have it cosigned though to keep interest rates down.

so how did you read the previous post?

I think that feeling one has accomplished something at an early age should be encouraged. I have to say though if I had a 135i with a Dinan stage 2 update at 18 I would probably be dead. Lord knows I did my best with a 105hp 2002 back in the day.
