I would make sure that the parts are yours to keep after your lease is up. At least then you could sell them and get your own residual value for them.
Good point. The only thing about buying them myself is whether in 3 years, am I going to get any real return on selling the performance exhaust? Or exterior CF parts? Especially since my pricing now includes install as opposed if I paid for them separately I wonder if it means I have to pay for the dealer to install?
