  • I should also add - my credit isn't great; I'm co-signing with my dad so I feel like it shouldn't matter.

    Guy said he might be able to get down to 650 - I'm looking more for 600 with a down payment of 2000-2500.

    to figure out what your payment should be, you need to get your Residual Value and Money Factor...here's a breakdown on how to determine your payment.

    You take your sales price ($44,300) and subtract it from your residual value to get this you multiply your MSRP ($44,700) by the percent they give, lets' say it's 58%, 44,700 x .58 = 25,926 so it's 44,300 - 25,926 = 18,371 divided by lease term 36 or how ever many months it is, 18,371/36 = $510.30, this is your depreciation price.

    than you add your sales price $44,300 and Residual Value 25,926 and multiply by your money factor, let's say it's .00161, so the formula is 44,300 + 25,926 = 70,226 X's .00161 = $113.06, this is your finance price.

    you add your depreciation price and your finance price $510.30 + $113.06 = $623.36 with nothing down

    anything you put down you knock of your sales price, I would also think you could knock 1-2k off your sales price.
  • Yeah - I'm not sure of the residual. He did tell me if I came back after the lease to buy it'd be around 20k. The money factor right now is at 5.9% which I feel can be much lower with my dad's credit attached as co-buyer? Not sure if you would agree to that.
  • Hi lovefynn. If you provide me with the MSRPs and approximate selling prices, or at least the MSRPs and dealer invoice prices, of the cars that you are interested in I will gladly use Audi's actual lease program to estimate some payments for you.

  • Hey rxke. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 Audi A5 Coupe Premium Plus that has an MSRP of $44,705 and a selling price of $42,630 through Audi Financial Services' right now for 36-months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $598.

    I used a money factor of .00161 and a residual value of 56% to calculate this payment.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for, asolare1.

    Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A5 Cabriolet Premium Plus non-quattro with 10,000 miles per year are .00130 and 56%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are .00150 and 54%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 48-month lease are .00184 and 49%.

  • Hello!

    Can you help with my info?

    First info offered without negotiation...

    Audi a5: Moonlight blue, with the premium plus packge, sports package (black leather), navi, mats, bang and olufsen, exhaust tips, wheel locks, wood inlay, rear parking sensors, advanced key.
    Total 49202 - 1802= 47400

    Looking for both 36 mo, 15 per year and 36 mo, 12 per year.
    Quoted residual today was .55 (15k) and .57 (12K).

    Lease factor quoted was .00158

    Based on this, looks to me like:
    49202 * .55= 27061.1 then 47400-27061.1= 20338.90/ 36= 564.97 +

    47400+27061.1=74461.1 * .00158 = 117.65

    564.97+117.65= 682.62 plus tax tags, lic, etc... with nothing down. Does the 682.62 sound accurate?

    15k per year for three years. I'm considering paying 4000 up front, which would pay for taxes, tags, registration, etc. and some extra. I'm in NJ and my sales tax is 7% my doc fee is 197, license plate is 311, and title is 60.

    A 12k per year would look like this?

    49202 * .57= 28045.14 then 47400-28045.14 = 19354.86/ 36= 537.64+

    47400+28045.14 =75445.14 * .00158 = 119.20

    totalling $656.84 per month, plus tax ttl, tags, and doc fee.

    Am I on the right track?

    I haven't even begun negotiating yet, but feel i may be able to work another 2k off sales price.

    Erick
  • Hi Erick. The money factor and residual value that you were quoted are right on the money.

    You definitely should try to negotiate this car's selling price. Don't let the dealer work up your deal at full MSRP.

  • Hi Car_man,

    Can you give me 36 month 36K MF and residual for November for A5 Premium plus coupe. Also same for Premium.

    Can you also let me know if there are any incentives and if there are any good leasing options - say 30 month or 42 month, also at 1K mi/mo?

    Thanks!
    Anthony
  • Greetings Anthony. Audi Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A5 Coupe Premium with 12,000 miles per year are .00158 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a Premium Plus model are interestingly exactly the same.

    30 and 42-month lease terms do exist, but I wouldn't say that either is significantly better than the 36-month lease.

  • Thanks Car_man!

    I see there was a 39 month offer at some point also. Anything worthwhile there?

    Are there any incentives to be aware of? I'd be moving over from a BMW 335.

    Thanks again,
    Anthony
  • Hi Anthony. This car's 39-month payments probably aren't that different than its 36-month payments.

    Audi has owner loyalty cash on the 2012 A5 right now but no cash incentives for current owners of competitive vehicles.

  • Hi Car_Man

    I'm looking at a new 2011 A5 cab lease/purchase - premium plus with navigation. Dealer price is $47,999 - is that a good price on a 2011, the 2012 models are rolling in so maybe i can get a better deal on the 2011? What would be a good 36 month lease payment for this - total walk-out price is $49,178.48 with zero down. MSRP is listed at $52,360. Thanks!
  • Greetings to the appropriately named a5seeker. Given the dealer cash that is available on the 2011 A5 Cabrio I personally would want a lower selling price than dealer invoice. I personally would shoot for at $1,000 under and see what happens.

  • Hi everyone. I've always used this forum when getting new cars so I thought I'd post what I just leased for informational / comparison purposes. Hopefully this will help someone else out.

    2012 A5 2.0T Premium Plus Quattro Coupe in Glacier White Metallic (automatic transmission), black leather interior
    +Navi
    +Rear parking sensors
    +Sports package
    +19inch 5-Arm Y-spoke alloy wheels
    +Wheel locks
    +Exhaust tips (chrome)
    MSRP: $48,110
    Invoice: $44,805
    TMW per Edmunds: $46,865

    Selling price: $45,240
    +Audi care ($800)
    Gross cap cost: $46,040
    Adjusted cap cost: $45,214

    Drive off: $2,000 which includes a cap cost reduction of about $825

    42 month lease at 12,000 miles per year
    Base payment: $584.69 ($630 including tax in CA)

    This is my 3rd Audi from Rusnak in Pasadena, CA. I am pretty satisfied with my deal and the overall experience was actually very painless (similar to when I got my other 2 previous Audis from here) and faster than I expected and experienced in the past. Also test drove an S5 while we were waiting around and was able to take it on the freeway which was nice. Hit 100 mph without a peep from the salesperson.
  • Hey Car_Man,

    can you post the residual, MF and any November incentives available on the S5 for 36 months 15K. My 335 lease is up and it's time!

    Also, what's a good price for Audi care? I believe it raises the residual 1%.

    Thanks!
  • Hi all,

    I'm struggling and not sure what I'm missing...I have what I think is a good offer on a 2012 A5 Premium plus lease with Sport package, wood inlays and audi care in meteor grey.

    MSRP including destination is $44,900
    Cap cost is $43,170 or about $500 over invoice, which i think is a good deal.
    Up front about $2K for inception fees.
    Tax = 7%
    MF = .00179
    42 months
    12K miles per year
    Residual = .54 (includes extra .01 for audi care)

    When i use my own Excel calculations or any number of online calculators i get a monthly payment of $611 including tax.

    The audi dealer is reading off all the same numbers but coming in at $643/mo using the Audi screens at the dealership.

    Car is under $45K so no lux tax and he verified this. I can't think of anything else that could be causing the difference.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help!

    I get $571 + tax..

    So... the CAP cost is either higher (with something added in), or the money factor and residuals aren't accurate..

    Don't assume the CAP cost based on what you know the selling price to be.... ask him to give you the exact numbers and what's included... I'm guessing there is something extra there..

    Hi carman,

    I'm looking to order a 2012 A5 Conv quattro. Can you provide the MF and residual for this particular model assuming 10k mile and 36 months?

    Also, would you have any inside info on when 2013 A5 supposed to arrive? Several local dealers I spoke to have said that 2012 may be difficult to order now because Audi is going to switch to 2013 model early in calendar year 2012.
  • From a Miami dealership, I was told Fall of 2012, though he did say "fall" is a wide window.
  • Hi bzcat. Audi Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A5 Convertible Premium quattro with 10,000 miles per year are .00138 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I know that A5 is being redesigned for 2013, but I haven't heard anything about when the new model will begin to arrive at dealers.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for cxxviii128. Audi Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A5 Cabriolet Premium Plus without quattro with 10,000 miles per year are .00093 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42-month lease are .00113 and 50%.

  • Hey Car_man,

    Thanks for all of the information you provide. I am looking for something similar to cxxviii128. I am looking to lease an A5 Premium Cabriolet quattro. MSRP is 47025, and I have a sales price of $45200. Dealer came back with a 55% residual and .00215 MF. I'm thinking I should be able to get the lease around $650 a month, but that was with a 57% and .00138 that you had quoted in December. Dealer lease number is around $800. Do you have different buy rates for the A5 Cab quattro?

    Thanks in advance!
  • Hi Car_Man,

    I am looking at the above in Dallas, Tx. The MSRP is $49,650 and the dealer has indicated a willingness to discount it by $1,250. On a 42 month lease they're giving me a MF of .00267 and a residual of 46%. The MF seems really high. The dealer indicated the MF was for their top credit tier. What is the current residual and MF?

    Thanks in advance.

    Scott
  • Hi CarMan,

    This is my first time leasing a car and I hear you are the "Go To" guy. I am trying to find the MF buy rate and residual value % on a 36M/12 or 15 month lease. Also, are there any marketing promotions or manufacturer to dealer incentives? Thank you!
