    Hi steinomite. Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A8L with 15,000 miles per year are .00118 and 47%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are .00138 and 45%.

    It's always difficult to predict what automakers will do with their future programs, but I wouldn't be surprised in the least if Audi's December program for the A8 was more attractive than its current program.

  • It sure does dons66. Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 48-month lease of a 2012 A8 are .00172 and 42%.

  • Wow those numbers are really bad. Based on those residuals and that money factor, the A8 lease will be quite a bit more than the BMW 7-series with nearly a $20k higher sticker price.
  • Yeah, BMW's offers on the 7-Series are solid right now...especially after they introduced the $3,500 cash incentive on it.

    Carman,
    What is the rate for the 2012 A8 if we only drive 10K per year? Is the money factor different? Is the residual higher with the lower mileage? I'm a current Audi owner. In an earlier post you mentioned a reward/loyalty program. Is that still in effect? Thanks in advance
  • Hi runes. The money factor would be the same for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be the same, but the residual value would be 3% higher.

    Audi is currently providing a $2,000 cash incentive on leases of this car to loyal customers.

    Car_man: What are the February 2012 lease numbers (money factor and residual) for the 36/39 month 15,000 mi/yr Audi A8L leases? How does the money rate relate to interest rate? Any incentives for Range Rover owners? When would deals be expected on 2012 models as the 2013 models roll out? Any advice on negotiating the best lease rate this time of year? Thanks for all your assistance.
  • Here you go longprairie. Audi Financial Services' February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A8L with 15,000 miles per year are .00058 and 45%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are .00078 and 43%.

    One can convert a money factor into an approximate money factor equivalent by multiplying it by 2400.

    Audi is currently providing a $2,500 cash incentive on this car to current Range Rover owners.

    It's difficult to say what Audi's future programs will be like on this car.

    In order to get the best deal, shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer take the cash incentive and base money factor into account.

    I just leased one last night. 42mos., money factor was .00088 & 40% residual & I also got the 2500 competitor move discount as well as another1500 audi financial special incentive. Overall, i feel I got a killer deal & even if i didn't, what matters is my perception of what I got:) !!

    Car Man: I’m thinking about leasing a 2012 Audi A8L. What are the February 2012 lease numbers (money factor and residual) for the 36 month 12,000 and 15,000 mi/yr Audi A8L leases? I am an existing Audi A8L lessee. Are there any loyalty incentives for current Audi A8L lessees? My current leased car will have a significant excess mileage charge (around $3-4K) when my lease expires, but also has about 1-2K of positive “equity” in the optional buyout price compared to current market value. Any advice on negotiating the best way out of the excess mileage charges? Thanks for all your assistance.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for thbell. Audi Financial Services' February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A8L with 15,000 miles per year are .00058 and 45%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    Audi is currently providing a $1,500 cash incentive for current AFS lessees who lease a new A8.

    $1,000 in equity might not be enough to make a difference when you turn your current car in, but it's worth a shot. See if the dealer will be willing to do anything for you.

    Hi Car_Man,

    I see some 2013 A8s showing up in dealer lots. Could you please provide the current lease rates for 2012 and 2013 A8 cars with 36 month/12,000 and 15,000 miles a year.

    Also do you know of any incentives Audi may be offering dealers to help clear out the remaining 2012 models.

    Many thanks.

    Can you give me the AFS lease rates for the 2012 A8L for 42 MONTHS /15K miles a year. Also is Audi providing any cash on this car? Is 1g over invoice reasonable? another issue is i need to get out of my lease on my 2011 s5, with 14.5g miles and approx 18mos left on the lease, and was told there is a 4g buyout, is this my best option?

    thx for your help.

    Yep, skialpine, I have heard that the 2013 A8s are selling. They were the first '13 Audi models to begin to arrive at dealers.

    Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 A8L with 15,000 miles per year are .00063 and 48%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2012 model are .00036 and 46%.

    The residual values for leases with only 12,000 miles per year are 2% higher.

    Audi is providing a $3,000 cash incentive on leases of the 2012 model to current owners of Audis and select competitive luxury makes.

    Hello yink63. Audi Financial Services' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 42-month lease of a 2012 A8L with 15,000 miles per year are .00056 and 42%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Audi is currently providing a $3,000 cash incentive on leases of this car to current owners and lessees of Audis and select competitive luxury makes.

    $1,000 over invoice minus the cash if you are eligible for it seems like a reasonable offer to me.

    Eighteen months is a lot of time left on a lease. Obviously, your least expensive option would be to wait until you are closer to the scheduled end of your current deal to get something new. If you have to get something now it's likely going to cost you. You will have to either find someone to assume your lease or pay a decent penalty to get out early.

    A8L - 2013 - in the dealers? Or arrival dates?

    Thanks.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi dssxxxx. The 2013 A8s should be out there at dealers already. Audi already has programs on them.

    Hi Car_Man,

    Thanks for answering my questions on a May lease, I am still working on my deal so I wondered if you could update me on what the lease rates look like for June for the 2013 SWB A8. I am looking for
    10K and 12K and 36 and 42 months.

    Many thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    I'd be happy to provide you with an update, skialpine. Through July 5th, Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 SWB A8 with 12,000 miles per year are .00092 and 50%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42-month lease would be .00112 and 46%.

    The residual values for leases with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

    Hi Car_man,

    Can you give me residual and money factor for July for the 2012 A8 L? Also, any loyalty or other incentives?

    Thanks.

    Sorry for the delay in my response, richz. I was on vacation. Here you go.

    Audi Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A8L with 15,000 miles per year are .00016 and 45%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    As far as the incentives that are available on this model go, there is $3,000 loyalty cash, Audi is waiving its first month's payment and there is free Audi Care maintenance on it

    Thanks. The dealer told me the money factor was 0.00068. I know BMW dealers can markup the money factor, is he doing the same since his is much higher than yours?
  • Hello,

    i just looked at a 2012 A8L 4.2 for 96,000 sticker price and $88,000 invoice price. what would the monthly lease look like for 20,000 miles for a 39 month lease?

    Do you suggest going for the 2013 A8 3.0 (sounded loud but not stiff) or waiting for the 2013 version with a 4.0 engine?

    Thank you,
    Emran
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    You're welcome richz. If your credit is in good shape and you're talking about a 2012 A8L then yes I would say that the dealer is attempting to mark your car's money factor up to pad the deal.
