    Still waiting for a response from this dealer. I'm seeing specials on 2014 GTIs for 269/month. Any chance I can get a MF for 2014 in CA as well?

    I'm trying to lease a 2015 S w/the lighting package. They initially offered a .00225 Mf till I balked and got them to .00160. I'm putting down 3 grand. They offered me 353.57 a month which includes all taxes and fees. Is this a good number? Waiting to hear back on MSRP.

  • cuthbertcuthbert Posts: 13

    I'm assuming it'll be 26 something

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,124

    We'll need MSRP and selling price to give an educated opinion.

    Per my earlier post, I just have a question in regards to acq fee. Is there any benefit in paying it all upfront vs rolling it into your monthly payment, beyond the obvious marginally lower monthly if you pay up front?

    That's the only trade off - out of pocket initially, or pay over the life of the lease. If you live in a state that taxes the monthly payment, then you'll get taxed on the acq fee as well.

I'd rather have an S for the plaid seats but still interested to see if they're giving me good number s. Thanks!

    2015 SE W/ Light Package MSRP $30,910. Selling price $29,857, admin $599, lease acquisition $625 plus 3% tax. With 0 money down I'm being quoted a payment of $421, is this a good deal?

  • kbad81kbad81 Posts: 2

    36 months 12k miles per, the residual was a shade over $18000.

    Not sure how the 3% tax is applied, but without tax, I get $403/mo., so it seems to be a fair deal... though, they are taking most of the discount back with that $599 admin.fee

    The residual can't be 50%, unless he was quoting a 2014 model. 60% is correct for 36mo, 12K/yr. The bump for Tier B is only .00030, so the base MF would just be .00190, not .00240. Looks like they may be marking up the Tier B rate.

    Considering the $3000 down, that's about $410/mo. for a $27K car... That's not a great deal. If they knocked the MF down to .00190, that would knock about $20/mo. off the lease payment..

    Finally pulling the trigger, they're bringing an SE w/the lighting package in for me. MSRP is 30,130. Sale price is 29,036. 0 down at an Mf of .00160. 3 yrs/36 k miles. In Idaho, tax is 6%. Total monthly payment after tax is 429.70. Is this an alright deal?

    Using the numbers you've provided along with the 51% residual for 36/12, I get a pre-tax payment of $450.76, so yeah, you've got a pretty good quote in front of you.

    Can you tell me MF, residual value, on 2015 VW GTI Autobahn edition. 36 months, 10,000 miles a year? The sticker on the car is $31,685. I am shooting for a $1000 under sticker but it's tough on the 2015. Is $1000 of reasonable?

    All the best!

  • cb4d1cb4d1 Posts: 19
    I'm seeing people in other states getting $2k+ off sticker. It's rare but it seems to be happening. I definitely think you can get $1k off at minimum (I'm in LA looking to lease a SE as well).

    My question (that anyone can answer) is what is better, a higher residual with a slightly higher MF or a low residual with a much lower MF? I would assume if you plan on buying the car after the lease ends, the lower residual/lower MF would be better b/c more of your monthly has been going to paying down the car than to interest?

    Reason I ask is, I love the Mk7 but with the MF hovering around 3.7% and 60%-ish residual, it seems at best an average deal for a lease. When you start talking $400-450/month you open the door to a lot of other cars, many of which are more expensive with higher residuals. I'm just trying to justify the current MF is all. The GTI has never leased well, which is a bummer.
