Looks great! As a rule, I would never put any money down on a lease, trade in or not, unless you ultimately plan to buy the car outright after the lease. We recently leased a Hyundai Elantra Limited for my fiance and we actually negotiated that the dealership would pay us cash for the value of the car (in this case, she didn't owe anything on her old Sebring). We are using that cash to pay for the first 4 months worth of lease payments. Its the same concept of going to CARMAX and having them write you a check for the car (you can obviously only do this if you aren't under on your car)
