    Hi Johnny. The money factor and residual value that you were quoted look good. As far as the rest of this deal goes, it would be easier for me to evaluate it if you were to provide us with this truck's MSRP and selling price.

    Hello cyndicate. The money factor that you were quoted looks a little high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for a 39 month lease of this truck is only .00179.

    So the bad news is that it appears as though the dealer is marking your vehicle's money factor up a little bit. The good news is that the selling price that you were quoted, $750 over invoice is pretty good.

    Hi Car Man,
    The Q5's selling price is not available yet, as this dealer is out of stock on the configuration that I want (Black on black with Premium Plus). They will be out of stock till the end of September. I will reply back once I get the MSRP and selling price from them.

    Thanks

    You do an enormous service on this forum creating informed consumers.

    We will be very grateful if you can please quickly post the Audi Financial residuals and money factors for September for 10K/12K/15K miles for the Q5s. We live in Oklahoma City, these are in short supply, and without local competition, there is no transparency about the quality of the deal without this kind of information. Thanks very much in advance.
  • What Money Factor and Residual should I expect for 36 or 39 mo. lease?
  • Thanks mdxlessee. Here you go. Audi Financial Services' September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2012 Q5 2.0T Premium with 15,000 miles per year are 0.00159 and 53%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher. The 10,000 mile per year residual would be 3% higher.

  • Hi Carman,

    First, thanks for providing all of the info that you generously take your time to provide. Without you, many Audi buyers would be left to the power of the shady car salesmen and women. I ordered a Q5, 2.0t, premium plus, that will arrive in late october. Given that, i can renegotiate my lease terms if the rates favor me in October. My terms: 39 months @ 15k per year, MF .00179 and 52% residual. Have these numbers changed for my lease terms? Would like to be prepared should I need to make a phone call to my jerkface dealer. Thanks!! Adam
  • Dear Adam0302:

    Out of curiosity - what were you able to negotiate for the price of the car? Could you tell me the actual Invoice on your car and actual price. Also, what city/region are you in? (e.g. Southern California or Bay Area).

    Thanks,
  • Hi Carman~

    I'd appreciate your thoughts on the following deal that I have right now. I'm new to leasing a car and want to make sure I am not leaving anything on the table with this deal.

    2012 Q5 3.2L, nav, floor mats and metallic paint
    MSRP: $47,590
    Negotiated Price: $45,750
    Money Factor: .00177
    Residual: 54%
    Due at signing: $3,424
    Monthly payment: $640

    Thanks!!
  • Hey westside4,

    Of course I don't really know the "real invoice" price.... you know those shady dealers are never really upfront with you about advertisement fees and etc. However, edmunds lists my invoice as $38,387. My final price was $39,225 (incl destination). It's $838 above 'invoice' and $1500 below the MSRP of $40,775 (incl. destination). It's a pretty good deal compared to some of the dealers who would only give me a $500 discount. I'm in the tri-state area. My dealer was New Country in Greenwich, CT (15 minutes from my house). Newton Audi (In Newton NJ) offered me "a car at invoice" but I found them to be shady and didn't trust them (plus they're 2 hours from me). Hope all this helps.

  • You're very welcome Adam. Audi's lease program for this truck is still the same.

  • Hi toomuch1. Is this a 39 month lease? You never mentioned the term, but it looks like it.

    As far as this truck's selling price goes, there is probably a spread of around $3,200 or so between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That probably puts the selling price that you were quoted at around $1,400 over invoice. That's not bad, but there's enough room there that if you are in an area that has a solid level of competition you may be able to beat this deal by a couple hundred dollars by shopping around.

  • Hi Carman,

    Yes...the lease is a 39 mo lease. And thanks for the comments on the price of the vehicle. Any thoughts on the lease terms?
  • Thanks Car_man. My arrival date is around 10/17, so I will check back with you that week to see if the lease terms have changed before I sign for the car. Thanks again!!

    Hi Car Man,

    Can you please provide the September residual and money factor for a Q5 Premium Plus, 42 Month, 10,000 miles per year for someone who qualifies for top tier credit?

    Thanks,

    RMC
  • Thank you for the previous info Car_man. Do you know if the same rates were maintained for September for the same conditions: Q5 Prestige, 39 months, 15K miles/year?

    Thanks in advance.

  • No problem espressomac. Yes I believe that this truck's September lease program is exactly the same as its August program was.

    Hi - looking for a recent buy rate for Audi mf's for Oct. Don Rosen in Conshohocken quoted me a 52% residual and a .00184 mf for a 39 mo/15k yr lease. Are mf's negotiable? I put together a deal sheet and sent over to dealer for a 2012 Q5 3.2 prem plus with B&O and navi.
  • I ordered a 2012 Q5 2.0 with premium plus, navigation and smart key. My negoiated price was $1100 below MSRP which seemed fair. I'm locked in to August's lease rates/residuals though if Oct rates are better I can take them instead. What is the OCT MF and residuals for a 36 month lease with 15k or 12k. Also is the $800 for the Audi Care worth it? Thanks.

    Hello Car Man

    I'm wondering what's the lowest or fair price I can expect for my monthly payment of "leasing " for 39 months a 2012 Q5 2.0 T premium plus package, NAVI . 5k down payment. With 12,000 miles per year.

    msrp 44,250$ as built (web page and sticker in window)

    I went to the dealer in Miami and They told me monthly payments of U$620. Also that my 5k downpayment will include:

    First Month Payment (U$620) so 38 payments will remain.
    Included was also: Acquisition Fee, dealers fees, title, etc.

    Thank you very much

    Car_man will have specific money factor and residual answers for you....

    But, in comparison, my local dealer has the same vehicle (2.0T, PremiumPlus, NAV) for 39mo, 10K/yr for $4000 due at signing and $499/mo. plus tax.. The $4000 includes all fees.. 12K/year is $15/mo. more... 6% tax would add about another $31/mo.. (and, maybe $250 to the money upfront)..

    So... comparably... $4250 due at signing, and $545/mo, including tax..
    That's $750 plus $75/mo. better than your deal..

    I've got all these numbers, because we were recently shopping for the same exact vehicle..

    Hope that helps,
    kyfdx

  • Hi twdubs. Money factors are and aren't negotiable. They aren't in that banks set vehicles' buy rate aka lowest possible money factors. Dealers are not allowed to lower them...however dealers are often allowed to mark vehicles' money factors up in order to add additional hidden back-end profit to deals.

  • Hi dave1129. Audi Care is actually a pretty good deal because the addition of it to a leased vehicle actually bumps its residual values up by 1%, partially offsetting the cost.

    As far as this vehicle's lease program goes, Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Q5 2.0 Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00159 and 53%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year are 2% higher.

  • Hi perucha. Your lease payment on this truck will depend upon what selling price you are able to negotiate. For now I will assume a $2,000 dealer discount.

    According to mu calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 Q5 2.0T Premium Plus that has an MSRP of $44,240 and a selling price of $42,240 through Audi Financial Services right now for 39 months with 12,000 miles per year your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $600.

    I worked up a zero down lease for you because it is never a good idea to put money down when leasing. Consumers who do risk losing the money that they laid out if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered.

    Does Audi offer a one payment lease where you pay all 36 months upfront. Considering a Q5PP and I only need 10K per year in mileage.
