    Hey caldavo. AFS' 36-month, 15,000 mile per year numbers for the '13 A5 Cabriolet Premium Plus quattro are .00122 and 54%, 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.

    Hi Car Man:

    I am looking for the July money factor and residual value for a 2013 A5 Premium Plus Auto. with 36-month, 10K miles per year

    The dealer quoted me that the money factor is 0.00189 and residual value is 59%. The money factor is much higher than 0.00122. Is it negotiable? Seems the dealer is very firm on it. Is there any lease term with less than 10K miles per year? like 7.5K?

    Thanks.

    Hello aakk. Sorry for the delay in my response, I was away for a little while.

    Audi Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 A5 Coupe Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year are .00159 and 56%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    If your credit is in good shape, most likely the dealer that you are working with is attempting to mark your car's money factor up to add additional back-end profit to your deal. You should try to get the dealer to use the buy rate money factor to calculate your payment if possible.

    I don't think that AFS offers leases with less than 10,000 miles per year, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Thanks car_man!

    I almost made the deal with that dealer offering me MF 0.00189. Although I have good 780 credit score, they refused to go down the MF and said it was fixed by the bank. Thanks for this web site, I felt the dealer mark up the MF to make more profile. Finally two other audi dealers gave me response that MF is 0.00159 and residual value is 60% with audi care. I quickly dumped the previous dealer and am going to make the order with one of the later two tomorrow! I have to wait for 3 months for my car though. But it is OK because I like to be treated honestly.
  • Hi, Car_Man. I'm interested in leasing either a new 2012 or 2013 A5 Cabriolet Premium Plus (not Quattro) for 36 months/10K miles per year. What are the current money factor and residual value %? Also, as a current Audi owner, what loyalty incentives and/or other incentives or dealer cash are currently available?

    Thanks!

    hey Car_man,

    I am looking to lease a 2013 Audi A5 Premium Plus with Nav, 10k miles a year. I am willy to pay up to 5k for down payment, taxes and dealer expenses, but I do not want to go over $500 to $550 a month. is my target monthly price possible? also I am a New York city resident and my credit score is 770. I dealer told me I had to put down $10,000 if I wanted to see $500 a month payments. might as well buy the car with that down payment

    Thanks!

    You're very welcome, aakk. Good for you that you decided to go with a dealer that was honest with you. Thanks for giving us an update.

    Here's the information that you're looking for infoseeker8. Audi Financial Services' August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 A5 Cabriolet Premium Plus FWD with 10,000 miles per year are .00055 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2013 model are .00113 and 56%.

    There is a $750 owner loyalty cash incentive on leases of the 2012 model and $1,000 on the 2013 model.

    There's not any dealer cash on either of these cars that I am aware of.

    Hello latin0devildog. I would be happy to use Audi's current lease program to calculate a sample payment on the exact car that you are interested in for you. I just need you to let me know its MSRP and dealer invoice price. You can find that data over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    You definitely should not put $10,000, or even $5,000 down on any lease.

  • I am looking to lease and was wondering what the money factor and residual for August are for the Prestige vs. Premium Plus. I was quoted 0.00174 and 55 vs. 59% residual.

    Secondly, on the New vehicle pricing on Edmunds the market value in my area is at least $3000 less. Can I expect to negotiate this price even on a lease?

    Thank you for your help.
  • Hi Car Man,

    I hope you can help. What would the money factor and residual be on a Audi A5 premium plus, 36 months/12K. The MSRP woud be $48,870. My credit score is 755. Also what be an acceptable/good negotiated lease price, $44,470?? Does Audi offer any assistance to get you out of a Lexus, or if I own another competitotr car? Does Audi participate with multiple security deposits as cap cost reduction? Thanks so much for your assistance. Kevin

    Hi snufflez. The numbers for a 36-month, 10k lease of a 2013 A5 Prestige Coupe are .00159 and 55%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a Premium Plus are .00159 and 59%.

    Yes, the selling price of leased vehicles are negotiable just as if you were paying cash for or financing them.

    Hi Kevin. The 2013 A5 Coupe that you described probably has a spread of around $3,000 or so between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. I highly doubt that you will be able to negotiate a $4,400 discount on a car that only has a $3,000 spread between invoice and MSRP. If I was in the market for this car, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 over invoice and see what happens. You can look up this car's exact invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    Audi is providing owner loyalty cash on the A5, but I don't believe that it has any cash on this car for current owners of competitive models.

    I'm new to leasing and wanted to get your opinion if the following is a fair deal.

    MSRP: $48,970
    Selling Price: $46,541.48 (500 over invoice)
    36 month lease
    12K per year
    Cash at signing: $4,650
    Monthly $649.96 including 8.25% sales tax
  • I think you can do better - the cash at signing seems high. I leased my A5 (premium plus with sport package) last November and it's quite similar to yours (although I have audi care included in mine). Your MSRP is a bit higher (about $800) than mine - maybe you have some other options. I'm also in CA. I paid less up front and also have a lower monthly payment and audi care. Check out the details of my lease - it's post #544.
  • The online price from audiusa.com is $46,545, using the New Vehicle pricing section of Edmunds.com it came out to be

    Total Price
    Invoice $42,189
    MSRP $45,295

    MSRP: $47,675
    Invoice: $44,401
    Selling price: $43,975
    +Audi care ($820)

    Drive off: $2,500

    36 month lease at 12,000 miles per year
    Base payment: $581.00 ($628.93 including 8.25% tax in CA)
  • Hello,
    I am contemplating whether I should get AudiCare for the 2013 A5 Premium Plus Quattro I am about to lease. Could someone help me with a couple of questions I have regarding AudiCare:

    1) Does AudiCare increase the residual value of your car by 1%? I've been seeing this in some older posts and want to see if this is still the case.

    2) If I pay for AudiCare and pay for the cost ($800) instead of rolling it into the monthly payment, will I still get a 1% increase in residual value thus lowering my monthly payment?

    Clearly if I am able to pay for the AudiCare as part of my upfront cost and still get the 1% increase residual, it comes out to the best deal because I won't have to pay interest on the AudiCare and get the decrease in monthly payments due to lower depreciation costs.

    Thanks
