    Can someone please post the money factors and residuals for 2011 and 2012 S5 coupes, prestige & premium plus? Thanks.
  • Hi richz. Audi Financial Services' September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2012 S5 Coupe Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00163 and 59%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2012 S5 Coupe Prestige are .00163 and 56%.

    The numbers for otherwise identical leases of the 2011 version of this car are .00164 / 52% for 36 months and and .00164 / 51% for 39 months.

  • Hi Car_man,
    Can you post the October rates?
    Thanks!

    If you are looking to lease immediately I was told by a dealer that the September rates are in effect through Monday.

    Is it realistic to expect that I can receive the 0.00163 as stated or will the dealer attempt to negotiate a much higher money factor?
  • mpk444mpk444 Posts: 9
    Do you have the 39 month money factor and residual? Thanks for your help.
  • richzrichz Posts: 125
    You need good credit to qualify for that money factor. Beyond that I don't know if Audi dealers can mark up the money factor, I know BMW dealers are allowed to do that. I spoke to a few Audi dealers and all were giving me the base rate of 0.00163. If they don't, just tell them you want the base rate.

    Thanks, richz. According to dealer, they are not charging me the refundable deposit and instead, built that into the payment. Not sure if that makes sense.
  • richzrichz Posts: 125
    If you don't put down a security deposit then they bump up your money factor by 0.00015. I would pay the security deposit but it's your call.

    Thanks for your help. Seems like a waste of money to just pay the higher money factor and not receive the deposit back at the end.

    Do you know anything about the maintenance care package? I am trying to figure out if it is worth rolling it into the monthly payment. It will raise my payment by approx $45.
  • kyfdx@Edmundskyfdx@Edmunds Posts: 25,906
    $45 per month!!

    I've always seen AudiCare quoted at $895 MSRP... It used to raise the residual by 1%, offsetting much of the cost.. But, even if that isn't the case any more, full price would only add $25-$30 per month...

    I'd ask them exactly what they are selling you....

    Definitely go for the Audi Care, as kyfdx mentioned it increases the residual value of the car by 1%. I just negotiated a deal and MSRP is $850. You need to know how to compute your monthly payment yourself so your know exactly what kind of deal you are getting. Use this calculator to figure it out: http://www.leaseguide.com/calc.htm

    Ok, spoke to the dealer. The Audi basic care adds about $20. The additional $25 was coming from a multi shield package, which covers windshields, tires, and wheels. I am going to decline that portion as it seems costly.

    I have been using the Leasing Guide calculator, which is a great tool. Does anyone know what a realistic expectation should be for price over invoice on an S5? Also, there are charges, such as Tri-State Dag ($300) and inspection ($195). Are these legit?
  • richzrichz Posts: 125
    $1000 over what Edmunds lists as the invoice price is a good deal. Depending on how many dealers you have in your area this may or may not be possible. I negotiated that on a 2012 S5 recently but you have to contact a bunch of dealers, give them your offer, and if they are far off just politely decline. I'm not sure how much time you want to spend negotiating a deal, check out truecar.com for a more hassle-free sales experience.

    As far as the fees, every dealer will charge a documentation fee which is really a bunch of bs in my opinion and in some states are capped for that reason. I consider that profit in the deal and won't pay more than $200 for that. As far as the other fees I don't have those in my state, not sure if they are mandatory for you or just dealer profit margin.
  • Hi Jennifer. The October lease program for the S5 should be exactly the same as its September program was through November 1st (.00163 and 59% for a 36 month / 15k lease of a '12 S5 Coupe Premium Plus).

  • Hi mpk444. On a low volume vehicle like the S5 you may very well see dealers attempt to mark your vehicle's money factor up. If you are in an area that has a decent level of competition you should be able to avoid this by telling the dealer that you want them to use the buy rate to calculate your payment.

    Audi Financial Services' September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2012 S5 Coupe Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00183 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    This may be the wrong forum for this question, so I apologize if it is. Do you know if the sports rear differential is an important option on the S5? Curious if that is more for track and/or road racing.
