As great a car as these Mazda 3s are, I wouldn't lease them. To me, it is much better to purchase. You'll enjoy them so much, you'll not want to stop driving it. Assuming that you have mileage limits, it'll be difficult to stay under. Besides, they are (or were) offering such great purchase incentives, it seems a shame not to take advantage of them.
As far as other lease options go, what are you looking for: luxury, sport/power, combination of the two...?
I recently purchased a Mazda3 s Sport hatchback (MSRP on the s Sport manual is about $800 higher than the 3i touring A/T) for less than your 3i, so yes...I think you can certainly do better.

I really did like it on the test drive, but I'll be a full-time grad student for the next 30 or so months, so I figured a lease would be best because by the time I graduate and (hopefully) have a decent job, I'll be able to trade it in and maybe purchase a new one with the bigger engine and more features.
I figure if I can work the 3i touring a/t down to 18,500 including ALL fees, and a 36 month lease, with 59% resale value (read it on another forum) then I have to pay $210 a month to cover depreciation alone. I'm going in on Friday, so hopefully I can get it down to 215ish.

If it's a manual trans, it's a pretty good deal. The link below will show you that Mazda3 s Sport manual invoice is $18,305. If it's an auto trans, it's an excellent deal! Mazda3 s Sport auto trans. invoice is $19,051. The best some people are getting is $1000 under invoice, but yours is very good.

What would be a good ballpark figure on a '10 Mazda3s Sport hatchback with an automatic transmission and the moonroof/6CD/Bose package?
I'm in greater Nashville, Tennessee, if that helps.
