If you lease a car over buying it, how much can you write off of the car lease for the LLC?
Given that you can lease it through the business, is that a more wise decision than buying financially?

An expense is an expense. You can deduct your lease payment subject to some limitations, but you don't make out by having more expenses. Higher expenses mean lower profit.
Is leasing better than owning? It depends on the car you'd buy. If your business doesn't benefit from flashiness of your car, then buying a quality used car (a few years old at most) would probably be a wiser decision financially.
I'd think hard about whether you really need an up-to-date car.
