I would say the best way to make this decision is to create some scenarios (lease vs purchase) and make your decision based on the facts that presents.

If its personal use then obviously you want to take the option that will take the least off your bottom line.. if its for business then that can be a different story (well it is here)

Does window tinting count as "modifying"?
It all depends on the dealer. Most don't care. Worst case, you just remove it and its not a whole lot for removal.

Man, this is as confusing as it gets...I'm looking at Infinity QX for my wife. So I am going through the same debate in my head now. Had kind off settled on leasing a new or buying used one. Oh well...

Yes, confusing is an understatement!

I am realizing that I won't keep the car for more than 4 years as I will want a new X5M then.

100 grand is a lot to drop on a car and not owning it for long. It would definitely be a loss at the trade in.

I will probably be putting between 12 and 15K miles a year.

Reason i don't want to keep the car longer than 4 years is because cars nowadays are so technology heavy that you know this technology is going to be a dinosaur in 4 years.

So... I am pretty much justified in my head to lease it. Now if it were a cheap car then it might be a different story.
