I had a similar experience on the east coast (Ct). Was pricing a Leaf vs. the FFE. The Nissan dealers in the state didn't even want to honor the $199 lease for the 'S'. It meant they would have to sell it at invoice and they didn't seem to willing to do that. The Ford dealers were quite different, at least in MA where I got my FFE. After all was said and done I got the FFE cheaper than I would have gotten the Leaf 'S' for, and the FFE is so much more car than the Leaf 'S'...'S' for Stripped
Sounds like you got a good deal for a 12k lease, mine is a bit cheaper but it's only for a 10.5k lease.
PS, I like your car's color
