So my hopes and dreams were crushed yesterday

I stopped at Ford on the way home from work to see when I can turn my 2011 Fiesta in (lease ends in June) to get an ST. He said I can trade it in now without having to pay the 5,000 miles I'm already over. So we go to talk about what the pricing would be. I told him exactly what I wanted, and he told me since my car is negative equity (no idea what that means) the better option would be to buy an ST. So he gives me a price of $370 a month. I'm like whoa that is amazing. I was expecting it to be like $600. He walks away and comes back and all of a sudden it goes from $370 to buy to $490 to lease for 72 months. I can barely afford that price, I'd be broke (with stupid school loans, otherwise I'd be able to do it) and there is no way I'm being in a lease for 6 years. So I don't know what to do now :(

It's just not fair that it ends out like that. I am still learning stick shift, I am learning it because I want this car. I'm actually buying a cheap beater stick shuift today. Figure I could learn to drive with it plus save my car from using more miles. In the meantime I will have to save as much money as I can.
I guess he made a mistake. It would be $490 a month to buy. I can probably do that. I'm going to go to a different Ford and see if I can get a better price. I'm going to take my brother cause he's a dick and always gets them to lower the price a lot.
I did calculations and I can definitely afford it. I will still have a little over $1000 left to spend a month on groceries and gas. I am going to a different Ford tomorrow with my brother to see if we can get a better deal.
Yea I can probably get those right after I get the car. I also work for my mom part time, so one paycheck from that will pay for the tires. The bad thing is since the tires are such an odd size, not many tire places carry that size. Firestone has a couple right now but that's all I've seen so far.
Shipping is going to be ridiculously expensive though lol. What is the tire size?
Oh wow shipping is only $50 and you can ship it to a tire place to put them on for you. And the Bridgestone Blizzak tires are perfect for snow and ice. And they are way cheaper on that site you provided than Bridgestone's site. They are $700 on their site
It's about 4 hours away from me. Not too terrible at all. Do they put the tires on there too, or just sell them?
I checked their site and it looks like they do installations by appointment, so that works out perfect. I also plan to get some black rims to put on the standard tires after snow season is over. Just gotta find a good price and save money for those too.
So I got good news today. Picking my ST up on Monday! 36 month lease, 12,000 miles a year for $447 a month. The best part is I got it in my own name and I have terrible credit. My dad cosigned for my last car.

Its molten orange with orange recaro seats, moon roof, and navigation (which I could have done without but they said they couldn't get rid of even though I'm pretty sure they just have to remove an update on the my ford touch?)

Does it? I was pretty sure it was just the Nav data on an SD card.
That's exactly what I thought. Cause when I got in the car I noticed on the screen it said insert nav sd in the upper right corner of the screen
