How much are your guys payments/How much you guys put down??

I currently own a 1992 Honda Prelude Si and I'm finally tired of it. Its been 6 years that I've owned it. I'm currently trying to sell it for an IS. I went to Lexus dealership today and test drove a white '03 and I love it, but Im still waiting to see if I get approved. I'm afraid that the payments are going to be outrageous. So I was curious on how all you guys handle your payments??

What happens after her lease is up? will she then have the option to buy??
I was thinking of getting a used '01 IS but I really want that 5-speed! I heard when you buy brand new you end up paying those extra fees as opposed to buying used?

- are you talking about these spoiled kids?

- I know what you mean, they can't really take pride in something they didn't "earn" (pay for)

- can't always depend on mommy and daddy

No not the Babies, they know what hard work is, I mean they spend all day looking for JDM parts on the net..man what a work out!
I just dont understand how young people can afford such high priced vehicles, I know a 16 year old junior in high school and his parents just went and bought him a $50,000 '02 Escalade. WTF.

You dont feel like you just wasted alot of money, that went to nothing at all? Just a Question. So this means that you will be turning in your lexus pretty soon, then what? Or will you have the option to buy the car and pay for what ever the remainding balance is?
