    Car_man,

    do you have the money factor and buy rate for 2009 FWD A3 with premium and s-line options for 10K, 12K and 15K on a 36 mo lease?

    Regards!
  • Just left the Audi dealership and walked away with a 2009 A3. Residual was 52% for 10,000, 50% for 12,000 and 48% for 15,000. This included the Audi Care package which I wast told bumps up the residual percentage by 1%. Hope this helps.

    THanks!

    What options did you get and what was the money factor (aka interest rate)?

  • Hi jd25. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 A3 2.0T FWD S-Line with 15,000 miles per year are .00059 and 46%, respectively. This car's residual value would increase 2% for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year and 3% for a 10k lease.

    Thanks Car_man!

    Are these numbers the same for non S-line A3 with convenience package and open sky options? Also, a money factor .00059 translates to 1.416% int rate, is that correct?
  • uh oh car man. looks like I may have had an outdated money factor. Any idea what it should have been for an A3 FWD without the Sline? Thanks.
  • Hi jd25. The addition of the convenience package and open sky have no impact upon this car's money factor or residual value percentage. You are correct, a money factor of .00059 is indeed equivalent to an interest rare of around 1.4%.

    Car man... I'm looking at A3s and A4s right now ... in either case looking for a 36 month/12k per year lease. 2.0 FWD auto A3, and premium package A4 Avant ...

    Any thoughts on what the current Money Factors and Residuals are for those cars right now?

    And do you know if the $500 "coming from another luxury brand" thing is still active?

    Thanks!

    Hi hurls65. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 A3 2.0 FWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00081 and 51%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2009 A4 Avant Premium are .00160 and 51%, respectively.

    Audi is still providing $500 conquest cash to current owners of select vehicles who lease a new A4. It also is now waiving the first month's lease payment on both of these cars.

    Thanks Car_man...

    Those are the numbers/deals my dealer has offered me -- about to pull the trigger on the Avant this morning I believe. Thanks for validating!

    Hi,

    I'm getting this lease quote from local Audi dealer:

    2009 A3 MSRP 32800.00 (Prem, OpenSky, Auto, Front Track)
    36 months lease 10k miles/year with 1800.00 out of pocket. They quoted me 420/month.

    Can someone provide some inputs? What is the fair number I should pay per month? If you recently got A3 lease, can you share your numbers?

    Thanks,
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    You're very welcome, hurls65. Make sure to stop back and let us know how you like your new Avant.

    Hi Carman, Can you tell me what incentives are available on leases for the A3 and what the MF and Residuals are on the 2.0T quattro 4dr Wagon AWD
    Thanks">
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi eoseire. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 A3 2.0T quattro with 15,000 miles per year are .00103 and 50%, respectively.

    You never mentioned how long you want to lease for or what mileage allowance you need, so I had to make some assumptions. Let me know if you want something different.

    Hi There,
    I need your help and need it quickly. I was offered the following for a 2010 Ibis White A3 S-Tronic Quattro with the following options: Premium Plus package, Cold Weather, Titanium Sport Package, Open Sky.

    MSRP is 36000 plus 825 for destination.

    Dealer offers:
    $36640 selling price
    $19383 residual (53%)
    MF of .00197
    42 months at 12k per year
    zero down payment
    $1700 drive off (1st month, title, security fee)
    $566.86 per month (includes 8.75% tax)

    Is this a good deal? He said I would be getting it at invoice, but when I run the numbers it seems as if they ran it at MSRP.

    Please help!!!
    Thanks,
    Nate
  • Mr. Carman, can you tell me what the rate and residual are for an A3 36 months 10K miles aporx price of $32g. Also, there are very few A3's in South Florida but there seems to be more available in NY/NJ. Is there an economical way to get one of those cars down here? Lastly my Inifiniti lease comes up in October, will all of the rates change between now and then. Thank you
  • I'd be happy to help you out, southfla. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 A3 2.0T Premium FWD with 10,000 miles per year are .00104 and 50%, respectively. This lease program is scheduled to run through September 30th. It is very possible that Audi's October program will be different.

    Any additional discount that you would be able to negotiate because of the larger supply of this car in New York / New Jersey would likely be more than eaten up by the cost of getting it down to Florida.

  • Hi Car_Man,

    I've found what seems to be a pretty great deal on an '09 A3 and I wonder if you have any info on any lease incentives, residual and money factor for '09 models. I'm debating between leasing and buying, and the only lease info I can track down is for '10s. Thanks so much!
  • Hi westoftown. Here's the info that you're looking for. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Audi A3 2.0 Premium with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00104 and 47%, respectively.

    You never mentioned the exact trim level, term, or mileage allowance that you're interested in, so I had to make some assumptions. Let me know if you want something different.

    Audi is not currently providing any cash incentives on leases of this car, other than $500 loyalty cash.

    Hi Car_man,
    I am looking to lease my first car, an A3 2.0T 6-speed S-Tronic with Quattro, MSRP $30,850. On top of that, I want a specific color and sunroof. Does this make it more difficult to have an edge in bargaining? What tips can you offer me in heading in to negotiate the terms of the lease? What fees are fixed and what can I bargain?

    Thank you!
  • Hi Car Man. Does the current money factor and residual value change for a 42 month lease?
  • Hi kaypdx. The more flexible that you can be about how the car that you are considering getting is equipped the better position you are in from a bargaining standpoint. If you're really set on a specific combination of options that seems to be uncommon, it probably wouldn't hurt to put your acting hat on and act as though you care less about what you get than you really do.

    Your vehicle's destination charge and acquisition fee are fixed charges that all lessees have to pay. I actually prefer to look at vehicles' out-the-door prices, inclusive of all fees when negotiating a deal. Comparison shop with a few dealers and go with the one that offers you the lowest OTD price, then it won't matter how the price breaks down in terns of fees.

  • Hi gaeta21. Yes, Audi Financial Services' 42 month lease program is different than its 36 month program.

  • Car Man, could you post to me the current money factor and residual for a 36mo/10,000 and 12,000 mile lease on the A3 TDI Premium? And are these numbers significantly different than for the 2.0? I'm leasing in NJ, and I'm trying to decide if the differences in monthly rates will still make the improvement in fuel economy worthwhile. Thanks.
    Also, what have you been hearing, if at all, about how well these cars have been selling for Audi? That info could help in the negotiation process.
    Thanks again.
  • Hi rosenbj1. Sorry for the delay in my response. I've took a little time off during the holidays.

    Audi's December lease program is scheduled to run through January 5th. I'll provide you with the details of that program for now. Please feel free to check back with me later this week for an update of what its new January program is like.

    Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A3 TDI Premium with 12,000 miles per year are .00191 and 57%, respectively.

    If you were to lease this car with only 10,000 miles per year, its residual value would be 1% higher.

    The TDI's lease program is much different than the program the the 2.0. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a '10 A3 2.0 FWD Premium are .00059 and 53% (12k),

    A3 sales aren't exactly lighting the world on fire, but then sales of most models aren't. Through November Audi's sales of the A3 were down nearly 25% for the year.
