    I am in Southern California and spent the better part of today negotiating a lease deal with a dealership in Texas. Car is an A3 TDI Premium Plus. Finally passed off to finance and he has different numbers than I have seen. For a 2011 TDI Premium Plus, I am used to seeing .00179 MF and 51% MF. But, he is sayin 53% Residual (I'll take it) but a MF of .00249. When I said whoooa! to the MF his claim is taht every region is different, and that is why TX can be different than CA. I did confirm that finance is going through Audi. Also, he stated that rates will change tomorrow. Any truth to differeng MF's by State or Region? Also, can anyone post the new numbers that may be out tomorrow (September 7)? Thanks.
  • Hi plmguy. I don't believe that Audi Financial Services' lease program varies by region.

    AFS' new September buy rate lease money factor and residual for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A3 TDI Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00171 and 54%, respectively.

  • Hi Car_man,

    Do you have the money factor and residual values for a 36mo/15K mile lease for the 2011 A3 TFSI automatic transmission for both the Premium and Premium Plus models?
  • I sure do, cappla. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Audi A3 Premium FWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00035 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '11 A3 Premium Plus FWD are .00035 and 51%.

  • what is the MF and residual on the 2010 and 2011 a3 2.0t quattro premium plus?

    15k 36mths

    thanks!
  • Hello mwahlert. Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A3 2.0T Premium Plus with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00090 and 52%, respectively.

    I don't believe that Audi is leasing 2010 A3s any longer. If you really want one, you can either finance it at 1.9T for 5 years or take advantage of $1,500 dealer cash.

  • Hi coldrainnsnow. Audi Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor for the 2011 A3 TDI is .00162.

    The easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    Thank you very much!
  • I am currently going to lease a 2011 Audi A3 premium plus for 36 months with 15k miles per year.

    With a selling price of the car being $33,500 how much money should I be looking to pay for total due at signing? Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Robert

  • Thanks for this great service.

    Taking a last minute look at the advertised A3 lease special. Live in Northern California.

    Details are for an Audi A3 Premium plus model with $994 down plus fees. Dealer says I am looking at $399 + tax for 42 months with 10k miles per year.

    Have asked for the breakdown on any additional fees and the exact cost of what check I would have to write to walk out the door. Is there somewhere else I should be looking for wiggle room? Would the money factor and residual value come into play here?

    Thanks!
  • You're very welcome, dmack411. The most important numbers that you should focus on with this deal are this car's selling price and its money factor.

    The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Shoot for a selling price that's as close to dealer invoice as possible. You can find this car's exact invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    Audi Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of 2011 A3 Premium Plus FWD is .00072. This factor rises to .00092 or 42 month leases. Make sure that the dealer you are working with uses these factors to calculate your car's payment.

    Good luck in your negotiations and make sure to let us know how everything turns out.

  • Car_man, you are awesome for doing this!

    I'm looking for the current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for 36 and 42 month on the '11 A3 TDI Premium Plus and the '11 A3 Premium Plus (gas) with 12,000 miles per year. Can you help us out?

    Also, how close to invoice can we get on TDI's (and gas too)? Is it possible to get invoice or below after incentives?

    Thanks again!
  • Thanks leasebuyer.

    Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A3 TDI Premium Plus with 12,000 miles per year are .00154 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42 month lease are 00174 and 50%.

    The numbers for the A3 Premium Plus Gas without quattro are .00018 and 51% for 36 months and .00038 / 47% for 42 months.

    Other than owner loyalty, Audi is not currently providing any cash incentives on the 2011 A3, so I doubt that you'll be able to get one for under invoice.

    Can you help me with the current moneyfactor/residual for a lease on an A3 2.0 TSFI Quattro Premium Plus, 42months, 12000/yr miles? Thanks for your help
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi cfdc. Audi is running a special on 39 month leases this month. That's the route that I would go if I was in the market for an A3 right now.

    Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2011 A3 Premium Plus quattro and with 12,000 miles per year are .00063 and 50%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Thanks car man. since this looks like a very good special, can you tell me what it would be for 12,000 on an A3 TDI Premium Plus as well as a gas A3 Premium Plus (non quattro)

    Much appreciated! Buying this month!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    No problem leasebuyer. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A3 TDI Premium Plus with 12,000 miles per year are .00136 and 53%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a regular aka non-TDI A3 Premium Plus without quattro are .00009 and 50%.

  • Hi-

    Thanks for all your good advice and information! I'm considering a 2011 A3 lease and was wondering what the money factor and residual value for April for the A3 Gas and TDI models.

    Does Audi have any current incentives or offers on either model? About how much above invoice should I look to pay?

    Thanks!

    Hi Car_man

    Are those numbers still valid for this month? ie: A3 Premium Plus Gas without quattro for .00018 and 51% for 36 months and .00038 / 47% for 42 months.

    Do you have the numbers for a 48 month lease for 10,000 miles?

    If that money factor is still valid for even the 42 month lease, there should be some fantastic deals out there.

    You're welcome Ryan.

    Audi Financial Services' April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A3 2.0T Premium FWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00009 and 52%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2011 A4 TDI Premium are .00136 and 55%.

    The only cash incentive that I am aware of on leases of this car is $500 for loyal customers.

    Hi churwitz. Audi's March numbers are still good in April, but the numbers that you referenced are from February.

    AFS' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A3 Premium Plus 2.0T with 15,000 miles per year are .00009 and 48%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00009 and 47%.

    You definitely don't want to lease this car for 48 months. Audi is not providing lease support on that length lease.

    The residual values for leases with only 10,000 miles per year are 3% higher.

  • Thanks, Car Man. I was at the dealership yesterday and they are offering me a premier purchase program for 42 mos, 10k miles/year at about $378/month with $3,500 down (incl. all fees and 1st month rent). He said that the sale price is only $350 over invoice. It's a 2011 A3 2.0T (petrol) Premium Plus, MSRP of 33,845. I believe the rate for the PP program is 3.75% and the residual is 50% at this mileage. Could you give me your thoughts on if this a good deal or not? The dealer says the PP program rate is lower than the standard lease rate and the other terms are the same. I will likely purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease, which would be around $16,900...this seems like a pretty good deal if I could finance that purchase at around 3%. Thanks for the help!

    Best,
    Ryan

    Thanks for your help Car_man. I just picked up my new Audi A3. For those interested, this is my deal:

    $1500 drive-off
    $400/month (tax included)
    39 month lease
    Audi A3 6MT (manual transmission) in white
    Premium Plus Package
    Cold Weather Package
    Sports Package
    Open Sky Panorama Sunroof
    Aluminum Roof Rails + Base Rails

    If anyone wants to provide feedback, I'm happy to hear it. I thought I got a pretty good deal. Anyone think otherwise?

    Also, I bought the excess wear and tear insurance for $699. This was the deluxe version (ie: I can turn the car in a year early without penalty) I only realized afterward that there is actually a standard version for cheaper which allows you to turn in the car 90 days early without penalty (They didn't offer this to me). Since I won't be turning the car in early, I want to see if they'll change me to this version, although it might be too late. Anyone know if Audi offers the standard excess wear and tear insurance?
