Audi Q5 Lease Questions



  • Please advise. How did you get to $625?

    I am emailing from CT near Danbury. Thanks for the breakdown. I was offered Premium Plus lease for 39 months for 15k per year. $ 652.52 with $1752.56 out of pocket. The Premium will be $ 613.23 with $ 1709.27 out of pocket.
    What do you think? :confuse:
  • Hi -- please break down the inception fees. $625 is great. I am working a deal right now to get that. But my inception fees do not come up as high as yours. If you would please, break down the $3339.
    First payment: $625
    Audi Care: $750
    then what???

    Thanks. This forum really helps. :confuse:

    My inception fees are : NJ sales tax: 1618.75, 1st month payment: $ 625, Registration/ Title fee $ 262.50, Doc fee $ 199, Tire Tax $ 7.50, Bank Fee $ 625:
    total $ 3337.75 . The Audi care is in the monthly payment.

    Remember - CT is different than NJ and NY. We donot pay the sales tax up front. It is charged on the monthly payment. Make sure when you get quoted the final monthly ayment includes tax, 6% on $625 is another $37.

    Thanks Car man -- extremely helpful as always. Thanks to advice you provided on this forum I was able to negotiate a great lease on my new A4 three years ago.

    I know you guys are talking about leases but what were the purchase prices associated with those leases?
  • Thanks for the information. According to my calculations, if I bought the car in NJ my payments would be $669. So my lease deal may not be bad. Thanks for your help.

    >Looks like it is a big deal to get a hitch on one of these.
    >The dealer wants like $1,500.00

    Seems like the OE hitch is cheaper (but not cheap). Perhaps a DIY?...

    Thanks for the info, carman. Can you please post the money factors and residuals for three year leases? I'll probably do 10k or 12k a year. Much appreciated!
  • Car_man-
    Thanks for the info! Let me toss a couple questions back at you real quick. The sales manager was using a .00055 and I asked him about .00022 and he said if I don't want to put any money down that he "had to" use a .00055??? Also, if I bump up to the Premium Plus does the residual go down to like 57%??
    Greatly appreciate the help!

  • All,

    What are the April rates and residuals for 36 or 39 months ? Is this months program better than March, and is there any factory to dealer incentives that I need to be aware of ? Im in upstate NY, and not sure what kind of target price I should be looking for. I really appreciate anyone's help, i need to make a decision soon !

    Thanks !

    I am also curious about 36 or 39 month info on a Q5 Prestige. I am in southern California. I have noticed that Audi is advertising a lease special in other areas of the country, but not in California--any detail on this? Thanks!!

    Offer him ten dollars down :)

    I think the last thing you want to do on any lease deal is put money down up front. If the car is totaled or stolen you are out that money. I understand that the dealers are no longer taking orders for 2009 models and any new factory orders are for the 2010 model year. Try to use that as leverage to get him down.

    i have about a year and a half left on a 36 month lease of my audi a4. is audi or any of their dealers receptive to the idea of terminating the lease early, turning in the a4, and getting into a lease of the q5? i dont simply want to roll the remaining payments of my current lease into the new lease. Or, is this entire idea too far fetched to become a reality in this lifetime?

    thanks for any replies.

    jaffman, if there are no dealers receptive to your idea, there is a website called It is dedicated to people who either want to get out of a lease early, or want to assume a short term lease on a vehicle from someone like you.
