Requirements:

Less than a year left on lease
Low, low miles
Mark Levinson
Park sensors

Qualifying won't be a problem (FICO around 800, long car lease/finance history).

I would also consider a straight-up purchase for the right price.

Please PM with details. Hoping to join the IS-F family soon :)

So, I contacted several dealers about CPO cars on their lots.

They seem to be unwilling to negotiate much -- surprising in this market. Prices for a clean, low-mileage '08 CPO are hovering around $45k, which IMO is about $3-4k too high.

Considering the CPO warranty and 0.9% APR, the same car from a private party should be around $38k.

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic :p

If I were selling my IS-F now, I would probably be more flexible on price. A year from now, a lot more IS-Fs will be coming off lease, supply will probably double and prices will take a dive. Wouldn't be surprised if '08 IS-Fs are selling for low 30s.

I'm still semi-interested in leasing or purchasing a '08-09 IS-F, but it will have to be a great deal to make me pull the trigger. Feel free to PM if you have anything in mind.

It would give you a chance to get comfortable with the car, decide if this really is a car you would want to drive for a long time, especially if it's going to be a daily driver / only car. At the end of the lease, figure out whether to buy it or return in. You wouldn't be wasting any money if you decided to buy it because buyout prices tend to be lower than current IS-F prices.

By "more" I meant all the 08's that were actually bought in 2008 and will be coming off lease sometime in 2011. It's unfortunate that the numbers went down in 09 and 10, but I guess it would count towards exclusivity :)
