Will This Help At All?...

So my father co-signed a Lexus lease in May of 2010, 339 month payments.

He was trying to re-fi his house and this debt on his CR was hurting him so he paid the balance, about 2200 in full today.


Three questions:


Will this help me because the lease was paid off 6 months early?

Will Toyota be able to pull up in their records that we paid the lease off early and help me get approved with them in the future if I decide to lease another car?

My father paid the lease the entire time, the $$ came out of his bank account, that does not matter, right?  If only matters if paid on time, it does not matter if the co-signer paid the lease, right?
