SO if you lease the car, what are the benefits of ED? How would you save money?

I got a quote for US and ED and the difference was $100 a month cheaper to do ED and about $600 less for money out of pocket due at signing.

This means for a 36 month lease I would save around $4200 AFTER 36 months.

I am assuming plane tickets to Germany are around $1k, food, hotels, gas, etc. for 4-5 days will be around $3k for just one person. So it seems that it comes close to the same price after 36 months.

This means that on top of putting $4k (let's say) down on the car, I would also need to put another $4k down for the vacation. I don't think I can afford to spend that much for a 'downpayment' on a lease.

ED has always been my dream but it seems like it pays off after a few years not right away.

Opinions for pricing? How much did you guys spend on your vacations?
