2014 Audi A4 Lease Questions

    Most makes don't really support 24 month leases.. The Audi has a decent 36 month program, but isn't cost effective to lease for 24 months.

    I am getting following information from Audi dealer, does it look reasonable?

    Money Factor:

    36 months: 0.00039

    39-42 months: 0.00059

    Residual (10k miles per year)

    36 months: 54% (of the original MSRP)

    39 months: 52%

    42 months: 50%

    I am planning to lease A4 Quattro premium S-line, here is quote from dealer.

    MSRP: 39370
    Selling price:36220
    Lease for 36month with 12K/year
    It is 345/month with 5k down ( includes fees, dmv, first month and capital cost reduction).
    Please let me know if it is reasonable deal. Also, how can I calculate 345 myself based on MF and RV?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,067

    The variable (money factor and residual) are all correct. Without a CAP cost reduction, the payment would be $438/mo.

    Big numbers upfront can hide a lot. You need an itemized breakdown of the $5000, to see how much is CAP cost reduction, and where the rest of it is going (1st payment, acq.fee, DMV, dealer's boat payment.. etc)

    Thanks Could you please let me know how did you come up with $438. Also, RV is based on 10k miles not 12k. Is that ok?

    Here is a good primer on the lease calculation:
    http://forums.edmunds.com/discussion/12602/general/x/how-to-calculate-monthly-lease-payments

    Going from 12K/yr to 10K/yr adds 1% to the residual amount, and would lower the monthly payment on the previous calculation by about $11/mo.

    I inquired about A4 w/Audi Care, Premium Plus Package, Audi MMI Navigation Plus Package, Black Optic Package, Sport Package, Audi Guard Protection Kit MSRP $45,195 . No money down.

    36 month lease 15,000 miles per year .00089 money factor 53% residual $605.43 per month

    is the money factor marked up and by how much? I don't have the sale price of the car yet - I've emailed me back to get that part.

    The base MF is .00039, so it's either marked up, or they are waiving the acquisition fee in exchange for a .00050 increase (which is more expensive than just rolling the fee into the lease)

    A .00050 markup adds about $1200 to the lease, over three years.

    Been reading through all these posts and find all this info to be extremely helpful. Heres my inquiry please. thoughts?

    A4 Premium Quattro tiptronic w/ s line package.

    36 months 12k/yr

    MSRP-$38,395

    Cap cost-$36,500

    .00039( money factor)

    $21,501.2 (56% residual)

    $326.99 ( first monthly payment, LA county tax 9%)

    $353. ( dmv fees)

    $8.75 ( state tire fees)

    $80 (document fee)

    $270 ( cap reduction tax)

    $69.75 ( upfront fee tax)

    $1,803.49(total inception fee)+$2,000 cap reduction=$3,803.49(total drive off)

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,067

    Looks like you left out the $695 acq.fee off the itemized list, but looks like it's included in the $1800 inception fee total.

    If it's me, I roll the $2000 cap reduction and the $695 acq.fee into the lease.. Looks like a solid deal..

    Dealing with a bit of a dodgy dealer here in Bergen County NJ - quoting me a money factor of .00079/53% residual on a 39mth lease on a Quattro Premium Plus with Navi Plus package...what's a realistic Cap Cost I can achieve on this vehicle? What about the Cap Cost on a Quattro Prestige? I also see a $493 doc fee listed here, is that legit? It seems to me that on 36-39mth lease I could get a residual of 54% and a money factor of .00039 looking at previous quotes, is that still realistic?

    The base MF on a 39 month lease is .00039, so the dealer is marking up that number. I assume that the 53% residual quoted was for 10K/yr?

    Most decent deals seem to be about 6% off MSRP,which matches supplier pricing. You'll have a $695 acquisition fee to add to that.

    A 54% residual for 39mo, 10K/yr would require the purchase of an AudiCare maintenance agreement. The base MF for 36 months is .00019, and the residual is 2% higher.

    Getting the Prestige trim will make the lease much more expensive, as the residuals are 5% lower than the Premium Plus trim.

    Yep, the 53% was for a 10K/yr 39mth lease...the dealer came back and said the base rate "for the vehicle you chose" is .00059 which makes me not want to deal with them anymore, but they did say they'd raise the residual to 55% for a 36mth 10K/yr lease...I think I'll stay away from the Prestige trim, doesn't seem worth it...thanks for your help

    Quattro - .00039 and 55%

    Just curious, are these numbers the same for A4 FWD Premium Plus w/ Nav? 10K, 36 months? Woah, the MF on a FWD is pretty low. If I do MSD, the MF will be almost close to nothing. Thx

    I really appreciate the assistance you all offer on this site. I'm researching a deal that I'm currently working and would like you to tell me what you think:

    2014 A4 2.0T FWD Multitronic 42 mos - 10K miles per year

    She quoted a residual of 49% and a MF of .00068. Huh?

    I haven't done the credit app yet but I am certain to be A-Tier. I do have about $2900 in negative equity to roll in, but unless I've been reviewing previous posts wrong, those numbers seem a little off.

    No up front cash other than the first months payment.

    Are the MF and Residual good that they're offering, or should I be trying to counter?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

  • uptownaudi08uptownaudi08 Posts: 2

    Forgot to add that it does have the S-Line styling package. Thanks again!

    The residual is correct, but the base MF is .00038.

    Doesn't look like an Audi Financial Services lease, so there could be some hidden issues with the deal.

    Does the $1k mfg cash go into the cap reduction or is that typically factored in to get to invoice pricing?

    Hey there, just started shopping around for a A4 Premium Plus with sport, S line, MM1, black optic packages. MSRP was 45ish and the dealer would go down to 44,000 paying the fees at signing 3,500 my payment was $560 with 51% residual not sure about the MF and to be honest don't really understand it. This is my first lease and I'm looking at 36m with 12K any help would be appreciated! Again my first lease and that was the first offer I'm gotten still shopping around.

    Thanks! v/r DannyP

  • dpadrodpadro Posts: 20

    Update to my last post, these are the specific numbers maybe it'll help.

    36 month 12K price with discounts 44,547 with all fees 47.791.00 again not sure of the MF but I know the residual is 51% my payment paying off the signing fees which amout to about 3,500 comes out to 603. The care is an A4 Premuim plus brilliant black, S-line, sport, MMI, black optic, back spoiler. Just wondering if that was a decent deal? I wanted to get the payments down to about 500-550 but I know putting money down besides the signing fees on a lease kind of defeats the purpose of a lease. Any input will help, thanks!
