So my friend has $500 a month to lease a car...

If you had the same budget, what car would you get? Just looking for some suggestions...I know it'll be different in terms of price in each individual case, but just roughly estimate. Thanks.

I just picked up a 328i M-sport for under $500 a month. I love it to death! BUT the 1 never crossed my mind , and today i really regretted not going for the 135i. So i vote for the 135i too. The looks haev really grown on me. It reminds me of the original mini's with the nice squat stance

its a waste of money to put to much down, especially if he is going to be returning it in a couple years...

Just my 2 cents..

its only a waste if its a lease other wise it makes sense to put more down if your going to finance it.

ZCP isn't that hard to find they're just expensive. An 04 with less than 50k miles could be had for around $23,000. Which is like 500 a month for a 48 month finance

By good I meant as low mileage and low abuse as possible. Even though they aren't F40 rare, you still have to be careful and shop with your head.
