Lease question for you folks- Math ahead

Let me be a dick and ask that you only answer if you actually know. I can guess just as well as anybody else.

I am coming to the end of my 3 year lease. 12,000 miles a year. I *will* overshoot my miles by a few thousand so I will owe when I turn it back in. My last payment should be in September. (7 payments due as of today). My lease mileage will likely run out about the end of June. I would have about 3-4 months of driving over. I expect about 2500 - 3500 miles.


Payment: $500ish

Mileage: 25 cents per mile (pretty good!)

Each payment = about 2000 miles

What’s the proper time to jump out? If I jump out with the mileage is up, I would owe about 3 months payments. If i drive to the end, I would owe about 1-2 months extra payments. It’s an Audi so they may do something to try to keep me inside the brand, but to be honest, I’m in like with the car. It’s a perfectly acceptable, if sterile driving experience. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to go to Alfa, but that word “passion” that Hammond and Clarkson banter on about has a certain gravity.
