Background. We 2-year leased a Kia Forte because I place a reservation for my Model 3. Tesla ended up actually delivering my car 7 months after I placed my reservation. I picked up my car July 2018 and still had 17 months left on my Forte lease. It was an impulse buy on my part and when I started looking at other EVs after 6 months of Tesla owernship, the Niro EV caught my eye from all the European reviews. 6 months left on the Forte lease, Kia contacted me to start looking at options to retain us as a customer. I told them I was only interested in the Niro EV, but supposedly they weren't planning to sell those at the Kia West Covina location. Later that week, they somehow got a Niro EV EX on hand. That being said. That being said, I convinced my wife to buy the Niro EV EX standard because she was in a market to replace her 2013 Prius and her employer offers free charging for their employees. Neither of us are experienced in buying cars and we ended up with a Niro EV lease at 44k after tax at $649USD/month for 3 years. There's things I want to DIY to the car- replace the emblems with the Korean Kia logo, ceramic coat, replace the lights, homelink/autodim mirror, powerlift gate... but of course I shouldn't consider those things unless we bought out the car. She preferred the premium, but as I implied earlier, they don't have plans to regularly carry BEVs. We supposedly got 11000 off (not sure if that included rebates we hadn't applied for yet) but included the 7500 tax credit if we had bought the car. Obviously we could've done a lot of things better, just inexperienced and lack of available guidance with purchasing cars. Does anyone have any sage advice what to do from here? I'd like to get a good deal for my wife, but I'm unsure how to go about it when we request the buyout.
