It's not so ridiculous if you're only going to keep the car for 1-2 yrs.
No hit on depreciation at the end.
No time spent on finding & negotiating w/ a buyer.
If someone is already spending say 30k a month, another $1500 tax-deductible expense isn't as critical as it would be for a person who may only have a budget of 10k per mo.
spending 30k doesnt justify spending extra cash on something that's not worth the extra cash. if it's worth 1000 why pay 1500?
but ur right, it all depends
