If you can write off the lease payment against a business go ahead.
However, if you decide to keep the car, you will always pay more for
it through a lease and the residual over the life of the car than if
you purchased it (in my experience). You are also handcuffed on the
number of miles you can drive every year without penalty. Your
insurance payment may also be different too...
