  • Car Man,

    Would appreciate your help. What are the MF and residual value for a 36-month lease for the A6 Prestige for 10,000 miles/year and 12,000 miles/year. Assume top tier credit. Thank you in advance.

    Past posts have indicated a good deal is say $500 over invoice. Does this hold true whether leasing from a dealers inventory or placing a custom order?

    Car_man,

    If each extra sec. dep. is .00008 MF reduction, would 2 months security deposit basically represent the difference between tier A and tier B ? Or fairly close?

    Then its just simple math.

    Thanks.

    Certainly Josh. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 A6 Sedan 2.0T Premium Plus quattro with 10,000 miles per year are .00126 and 56%.

    The amount of money that you put down does not have any impact upon this car's money factor. You're better off paying as little as possible at lease signing.

    Hi almatti. Money factors are used to calculate the interest portion of lease payments. You can convert a money factor into an approximate interest rate equivalent by dividing it by 2400. the following article does a great job of explaining how to work up a lease: Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    Hi socalaudifan. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 A6 Prestige with 12,000 miles per year are .00137 and 51% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

    Hi hilltop3. Generally speaking, I have found that dealers are often more willing to provide attractive discounts on units that they already have in inventory than they are on ordered vehicles. The reason for this are probably twofold. One they are paying floorplan interest on the units that they physically have in stock so the sooner they sell them the better. Two, they can provide almost immediate delivery of a unit that they have in stock. There's a greater chance of a deal falling apart if the consumer has to wait a couple of weeks or months for their new vehicle.

    Having said that, shoot for the lowest price possible and see what happens.

    Hi jromulus. You certainly could make up for the difference in money factor between two credit tiers by making additional security deposits. I don't know the difference between AFS' current money factors for Tier A versus Tier B. I'll see if I can find that out for you.

    Hi missysoso. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 A6 3.0 Premium Plus quattro with 15,000 miles per year are .00137 and 58% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I believe that 15,000 miles per year is the highest mileage allowance that AFS publishes residual values for. If you need to drive more than that, you will have to purchase additional miles on a per-mile basis. It is less expensive to do so at lease signing than it is to wait until lease-end and have to pay an excess mileage penalty.

    Sure mattsam. Audi Financial Services' April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 S6 with 15,000 miles per year are .00133 and 49%. It looks like you're getting Audi Care. Adding that to a deal bumps the residual value by 1%.

    Hi Carman,

    I am about to go out to an Audi dealership for the first time with the intent ultimately to lease an A6 for 3 years with 12k miles (most likely a 2.0 Premium).

    I haven't leased before and would love to know the following before I dive into this:

    - what are the most important figures for me to know - residual? Money factor? Anything else??

    - I've read that it is best to negotiate the price of the car down as best as possible before indicating I'd like to lease and not buy. Good advice?

    - any other pieces of advice or wisdom I should know before I go to the dealership?

    Realize these are broad questions, but would really appreciate your insights and know the few most important things i need to know before I go in.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have an expiring lease on an A6, with residual value of $26,007. I have 42,000 miles on it, which is 10,000 over the allowed lease mileage, and a damaged side mirror that the dealer says costs $1,000 to repair. An thinking about leasing/buying a new A4, but I could also just buy the A6. The dealer says he'll take the A6 back for a $1,000 charge. Is this reasonable, or should I get a better deal given the resale value?
