2015 Volkswagen GTI Lease Questions

    @bakayaro said: Hello, I've been following this thread as I am also looking at leasing a 2015 GTI - my local dealer has one on the lot at $26,810 MSRP (it is an S with 6-speed manual and just has the lighting package). What is the best lease deal I can get right now? I don't want to put anything down - can I get the advertised national lease offer of $299/mo for 36mo/12k yr?

    36/12 residual is 61% for all 2015 GTI's, with a MF of .00155.

    The $299/mo requires $2349 due at signing. Not sure how much of that is cap cost reduction, but whatever that amount is, divide by 36 to figure out how much that $299 payment will increase (eg, $1000 cap cost reduction results in a $28/mo decrease in payment for 36 months).

    Thank you for the quick reply Michaell. How much wiggle room from the MSRP do we have on these 2015 GTIs? Essentially, I want to get the lighting package ($995) thrown in.

    Hi, I'm wondering if I could get some quick help...I live in SF Bay, and about to lease a 2015 GTI SE w/ DSG and Lighting Pkg, the quotes MF was .002 and 60% residual for 3-year 12/miles per year. Can anyone tell me how "reasonable" of a deal this is, and why it seems the MF ranges from market to market? Does the dealer set the MF or does VW corporate, and is there any negotiating that can be done on it? In need to make a quick move for a car this weekend but could really use some advice--first time leasing a car. Thanks!

    I can confirm the 60% residual for all 2015 GTI's - 36/12.

    The "base" MF is set by VW Finance, but can be inflated by the dealer for extra profit. .00160 is the base MF for the GTI this month.

    Thanks Michaell. I got a price from the dealer near my house for a GTI SE w/ Lighting for $30,410.00 . Is this a good price ? What's a good price Autobahns w/ Lighting ?

    I'm not in the market, so can't comment on what is or is not a good price. Use the shopping tools at the top of the page to get Edmunds' take on TMV.

  • Leasing a manual SE 10k/36mo for 445/mo. Thoughts?

    Selling price? MSRP? Without those numbers, we can't reliably evaluate your deal.

    Hi,

    I leased a 2015 GTI Autobahn for $375 (taxes, licensing, etc included).... 4 years, 10k miles per year. Is this a good deal?

  • jdphc8jdphc8 Posts: 6

    Also, it was $0 money down.

    Hard to say ... what were the MSRP and negotiated selling price?

    The MSRP was $329,600 and the negotiated selling price was $28,500.

  • jdphc8jdphc8 Posts: 6

    Excuse me, the MSRP was $29,600.

  • MichaellMichaell ColoradoPosts: 7,389

    @jdphc8 said: The MSRP was $29,600 and the negotiated selling price was $28,500.

    Using these numbers with the base MF of .00160 and the 48/10 residual of 54%, I calculate a pre-tax payment of $331.92.

    I'm guessing the selling price isn't the same as the net cap cost, if you rolled in the taxes and fees.

    You're going to have to speak in laymans terms for me. I did include the taxes and fees, and it ended up at $379.00 per month (slight change from the initial deal). So yes, the pre tax payment was around 331.92. So you are indicating that the dealership sold it for less than what they paid for it?

  • jdphc8jdphc8 Posts: 6

    I'm just trying to figure out how good a deal I got in comparison to others in the market.

    I can't help you with that; I can only evaluate your deal based on the information you've provided, and the lease numbers from VW.

    And, it looks like a solid deal.

    Don't know yet - we haven't seen the August numbers. Later today, perhaps, or early next week.

    Got this quote from a dealer in LA on a 2015 GTI S.

    Actual Msrp 27185 Actual Invoice 26081 Selling $26253 @ 12k miles a year @ just the fees upfront of 802 ( dmv and first month ) $395 a month including taxes. MF: .00160 Residual: 61%

    36 months?

    Plugging in your numbers, I get a pre-tax payment of $337.15. Adding in 9% sales tax the payment goes to $367.50/mo. Not sure how the dealer gets to $395/mo.
