: Chris,
:
: A few things to consider when you run your
: numbers:

: (1) You will not need to pay interest on the
: 16k of car you DON'T finance with a lease.
: Depending on your credit and interest rates
: offered, you may save yourself considerable
: cashish if you avoid having to finance this
: debt.

: (2) You can invest the money you aren't paying
: on the higher monthly associated with buying.
: If you are the kind of person who lets his
: money sit in a checking account this won't
: amount to much, but it is realistic to turn
: 10% on low risk investments (see stock market;-).

: Run a quick estimate on your real cost with the
: above factors, and the 16k might not look so
: bad...

: my .02.
