Disregarding X1 vs X5, what I see is a question of whether to own a car fully after 30 months, or after 36 months owning no car, but get an offer to buy a used one or repeat the cycle by leasing another car.

Because I like to keep my cars for much longer than three years, I'd go with the buying choice, regardless of what the cars were. If you like to change cars often, and are fairly certain that you can afford a lease or loan without a trade-in in the far future too, leasing might be a good option.

As for X1 versus X5... Well, are you a soccer mom or hockey dad?
