Unless it's leased through your company and you intend to take it off your tax bill as an expense it's never a good idea to lease a car of any type. Leasing just puts one more profit center between you and the guy that tightens the lug nuts on the car back at the factory in the old country. At the end of the lease they will go over the car with a fine tooth comb. You will be charged for any and all dings and scratches and any other problems they find. You will be charged the going rate at the Alfa dealer shop. ($100 - 125/ hr ) The dealer makes more money in the service shop then he does selling new and used cars.
(That's why there was a fight to get some changes in the law to allow car owners to go to non dealership shops and still be able to keep the car under warrantee. ) Don't forget you will still have to pay for repairs outside of warrantee period.
If you want to get out of the lease early. That's fine with them but you will be hit with some really big fees.
Yes you can get to drive a fancier car through a lease then you could afford by buying. But why would you want a car you can not afford? I know, I know, that's the American way, right?
And no, I have never leased a car...

We need a law, one that says every male gets a 10 car garage on his 16th birthday so that when he is 60 years old he will never have to say "**** I wish I had never sold that car".
(No, I did not put those "****" up there the system did... )
Question: Do they really make Alfas in any other color then red?
