    I think I'm getting a pretty good deal here with a 2014 IS250AWD with F-Sport pacakge

    MSRP $44,997
    Selling Price $ $41,143
    Residual 73%
    10K/27 Month
    Monthly base: $373.83
    Monthly w tax: $397.57
    Drive off costs- $933.56 (bank fee, registration, doc, first month payment waived)

    What do you guys think?
  • Khurrama,
    Can you say which dealership and state your quote is from?
  • I am due to close on the car this week. As soon as I do I can post where I got it from. Thanks
  • Hi All! So I am looking to lease a 2014 Lexus IS 250AWD with the luxury and navigation package. I am a little lost on the leasing side of things so if you could please advise if you think this deal is good as there are not many lexus dealers near me to shop around.

    MSRP:$45,858
    Selling Price: $43,525
    RV:73%
    MF: .0009 which is about the norm of .00110 ( I think I got this correct, but looking at everyone else's I may have incorrectly noted this)
    Term: 27 months
    Mileage: 12k/year
    Monthly Payment:$432
    Total out of pocket: $1,900 which is basically taxes, fees, dealer fees, etc.

    I am due to sign at the end of the week just trying to get a feel if this is a good deal. Thanks in advance for any advice! :)

    That seems like a decent deal. How much do you think a 12k/year, no college grad program and I don't want to do a MSD with 0 money down should cost monthly? Just an approximation please.

  • bambulabambula Posts: 3

    I got the IS250 Fsport for 380 a mo with tax/tag included and 1066 due at signing. What do you guys think? Does anyone know how to find out what kind of insurance I have to get. I feel like 100k/300k is way too much.

  • pointjgpointjg Posts: 3

    Hi guys,

    I noticed a newsletter from JM Lexus down here in South Florida advertising:

    2014 IS 250 MSRP $37,188 lease for $187 per month for 24 months plus $2,990 down payment, tax, tag, title with 10,000 annual miles ** One payment lease same term $5,995 plus tax, tag, with 10,000 annual miles.

    I spoke to them about upgrading to an F-Sport w/ Nav, and they stated it would be about $80 more per month, bringing the one payment lease to $8,000.

    I've never leased a vehicle before... realistically what type of payment are others seeing with 10,000 annual miles for 24 months?

    Thanks

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,498

    Something seems way off.... in the first example, total payments of $7478, while the One-Pay lease is $5995?

    $311/mo. vs. $250/mo? Prepaying 24 months shouldn't save you that much... but, of course, if it does, the $5995 is a steal, and it should already be sitting in your driveway.

    Just be careful about how much the tags, title and etc. come up to.. it's the etc. that really gets you... Especially in South Florida... You might end up with a $700 acquisition fee, an $800 dealer document fee, etc, etc, etc... Start adding $1500-$2000 in charges on a 24-month lease, and the next thing you know, your effective monthly payment is way north of $400/mo.

    Have them run the entire calculation, then add up everything (payments and all money due at signing), then divide by 24. If that number is less than 1% of MSRP ($400 on a $40K MSRP), then that's a pretty good deal on a 24 month lease.

    Thanks kyfdx!

    I honestly can't figure out how the one-pay lease is $5,995 either... The dealer is about 40 minutes away from me and I'm trying to get some accurate numbers before driving down there, but the salesperson I'm working with is being a little difficult. If she'd work with me to give me an exact calculation/breakdown like my BMW dealership has on a 328i (and as long as it was favorable) then I'd drive down tomorrow and make the deal happen.

  • Hi all- I'm new to this forum but we are looking at leasing a 2014 IS250. I am in Texas. See below terms from the dealer.. I have tier 1 plus credit. What do you think? We aren't sure if we should put money towards a down payment, MSD's, etc? We are wanting a payment b/w $400-450. Any advice is much appreciated.

    The Money Factor for both 27 and 36 months will be .00080

    The residuals are 72% of msrp for 27 and 64% of msrp for 36 months

    Is250 MSRP $38,623 price $34,300

    Is250 fsport msrp $41,403 price $36,800

  • 12000 miles/yr

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,498

    Well.. my Lexus information is a little spotty, this month. The .00080 must be a regional thing, as the national money factor for that model is .00100. I don't have the 36 month residuals, but the 27 month number is correct, so I'd assume the 36 month number is, as well.

    You shouldn't have any trouble hitting your number. Even if I add in $1000 for acquisition fee, registration/title/doc fee on the 27 month program, that comes out to $328/mo, plus tax on the cheaper unit. $342/mo for 36 months.

    $350/mo. for 27, and $365/mo. for 36 on the more expensive model.

    Those numbers would be with only the first payment upfront, as the $1000 should cover the rest of it (maybe a couple hundred more upfront).

    Now, don't be surprised if the payments turn out to be a lot higher, once they do the calculations... If you know what I mean..

    Also.. I'm not real familiar with Lexus MSD plan. But, I would certainly take advantage of that, before making a downpayment.... All of the numbers above are pre-tax.. Tax is on the full price in Texas, unless the manufacturer has tax credits available.. So, that could be substantial ($65-$95 per month).

  • Hi Kyfdx,

    Do you happen to know the residual and money factor for an IS250 for 36,39,48 months (10k miles per year). Thank you so much.

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,498

    I only have 27 month numbers, and they are good through Monday, February 3rd.

    .00100 MF and 73% residual for 27mo, 10K/yr lease

  • Thank you so much kyfdx, you have no idea how helpful you guys have been over the years, you saved me so much money on my past two leases. I'm really sorry, but I may be bothering you again for the February and or March rates (I realized I want to wait a little longer to lease).

  • Hi kyfdx,

    Any update on the MF and RV for the 2014 IS 250 after Feb. 3?

    Thanks

  • To clarify, looking to lease for 36 months - 12k or 15k miles per year.

    Thanks

    I only have the 27 month numbers, though the money factors are good for the other terms.

    .0010 MF and 70% residual for 27 month, 15K/yr lease. Add 2% for 12K/yr.

  • Hey, I'll jump in and help, this forum has been awesome (thank you again Kyfdx and carman). I was just at the dealer, and baring them giving me misleading info. 36 (10k) was 65% for is250. 24 month was 75% (10k) for is250. Subtract 1% for 12k and 3% for 15k I think.

  • I do have two more questions though, sorry:

    1. Kyfdx, is the Money factor tied to credit?

    2. Is anyone knowledgable here as to how much MSDs reduce the Money Factor. How much does each MSD reduce the Money Factor. You can do 9 but, what is the total amount I can get off the Money Factor.

    Thank you guys!

    Thanks for the residuals. Dealers have no authorization from the bank to adjust those residuals, so unless the make a mistake, their info is accurate.

    1) Yes, money factor is tied to credit. That said, you usually have to drop below 675 FICO to drop down to a lower tier, with a lease.

    2) Sorry, but I'm not familiar with Lexus MSD program.

  • I just pulled the trigger on this deal. Let me know what you guys think.

    MSRP: $41,922 Selling price: $37,600 Money factor: 0.00085

    -27 months -10,000 miles/year -$2,000 all fees included -$304/month taxes included Residual: 73% of MSRP

    Everything looks solid on the selling price, residual, and money factor side. By the way how did you get a .00085 money factor, was this offered or did you use Money Security Deposits to lower the rate? As for fees, the acquisition fee is 700, did you also pay any dealer/doc fees?
