    Hi Car Man.

    Please give me the money factor and residual for a 2012 A5 premium plus cabriolet for delivery in August.

    I would want the lowest annual mileage they would write it for (10,000?) and would like to see figures for 36 and for 48 months. Thanks!
  • Hi CarMan,

    I'm considering a 2012 A5 Coupe Prestige, through work I can get it at invoice, which is $45,172. I'd be doing a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles a year.

    Could you please let me know what kind of lease payment I'd be looking at, as well as the MF and residual?

    Thanks!

    Jake

    went to Audi in NY today got the residual as 59% and 0.00161 for MF.

    I quote a 2012 A5 Prem Plus with Navi and Sport package $42648 he gave me the price of $3500 down and $569 per month.

    but when i got home and make some calculation my self it turn out to be $529 per month with 0 down tax and fees not include.
  • I would go step by step with the dealer the way you did ur calculations and then i would take the deal as it seams cheap for all your getting :shades:

    I'm glad that you've found my posts helpful, bhayward. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 Audi A5 that has an MSRP of $47,625 and a selling price of $46,400 through Audi Financial Services' right now for 36 months with 10,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $629.

    With a down payment of $9,000 (the 10k that you mentioned minus the fees), this payment would drop to around $364.

    Having said that, you definitely don't want to make that large a down payment when leasing. Consumers who make large down payments like that on leases risk losing part or all of the money that they put down if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. It's much safer to go with a zero down lease.

    I'd be happy to work up a sample payment on this car for you, Jake. However in order for me to do so I need you to provide me with both its MSRP and selling price. I can come up with an approximate selling price using the invoice price that you mentioned, but I still need the MSRP.

    As far as the lease program info goes, AFS' August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2012 A5 Coupe Prestige with 15,000 miles per year are .00161 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Thanks CarMan. The MSRP is $48,375, and I can lease through the Audi Supplier Program, which I believe gives 6% off the MRSP, so please disregard the previous info regarding the invoice price.

    Thanks!

  • Hi CarMan,

    I am debating between leasing or financing a 2012 A5. It would be great if you could take a closer look at my options below and give me your insight:

    >>>
    2012 A5 2.0T AUTO QUATTRO
    + BANG & OLUFSEN SOUND SYSTEM
    + AUDI NAVIGATION SYSTEM
    + PREMIUM PLUS PACKAGE
    + DESTINATION CHARGE

    MSRP: $ 46,400.00
    Asking Price: $ 44,000.00

    >>>
    LMF: 0.00153
    Term: 36
    DRIVE OFF: $2,345.26 (include first month payment + security deposit $625.00 + bank fee $ 703.75 + license)
    TOTAL MONTHLY PAYMENT: $ 619.51 after tax ($572.30, before tax)

    >>>>
    Selling Price: $44,000.00 before tax
    APR % : 3.50%
    Term: 60
    Monthly PAYMENT : $874.93

    Is this a good deal?
    Should I finance or lease this?
  • I see some of the answers to lease prices show a $ amount and a percentage which I am not familiar with. I am intrested in a low down payment on a 36 month 10,000 mile lease. I have the highest credit rating.

    The sticker price with the loaded (almost) car is about 46,000.

    I have not contacted any dealers yet but I want to drive the car first and find out some prices.

    Thank You

    Car Man - Hope you can help!

    Looking at leasing an A5 2.0 Coupe Prestige for 36 months, 12K per year.

    What is the September money factor and residual? Any dealer cash or special incentives? Thanks!
  • just came back from an Audi dealer and looked at an A5 premium plus, automatic w navigation package. Offered me $3890 up front for taxes, 1st month payment, registration..... then 575/mo including Audicare plan for 42 mos./ 12000mi per yr... How does that sound from the new york city area.....Thx
  • Just did a ton of negotiating with deals and the best deals I come up with is.

    A5 Black Perl Auto Prem Plus with 19" 5-Y Wheels

    Sell Price 42400
    MSRP 44430
    MF 0.00161 Res 58%
    Added Acq fee and some other fees.

    Lease with $1690 down a payment of $649/mo.

    Is that a good deal?
  • This is a pretty good deal. I got close on a similarly equipped A5 PP, but with a manual trans, 19s, etc. Great car, smooth, good power. In the end, the Audi's just don't lease out as well due to their residuals. I always go back to BMW, which I did this time and got a 3 Series Coupe (328i) manual trans, MSport, etc. on a 27 month lease with a 74% residual. Every time I see an A5 - coulda/shoulda - especially since I am getting 14MPG during my break in! Overall, your deal at 58% is pretty good though. Good luck - great car!
  • No problem Jake. Thanks for the pricing info. OK, let's crunch some numbers and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 A5 Coupe Prestige that has an MSRP of $48,375 and a selling price 45,473 through Audi Financial Services right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $679.
