A real advantage of leasing is that the little nicks and scratches don’t feel distressing. Sure you don’t want them to happen, but the “who cares?” thing is genuine.
Never leased a car but I could image the feeling, like a rental "its not my car".
Back to lease in eternal, I would always have a dark cloud over me saying its not my car, I can't modify to my liking. I only purchase with cash or will finance on occasion if they are offering one of those ridiculously low 0.9% or less type deals where their cash back alternative isn't there.
