    Claweave, Audi Financial Services' August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A5 Coupe Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00172 and 59%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a '10 A5 Coupe Premium Plus are .00172 and 55%.

    Hello claweave. Unfortunately, the loyalty offers cannot be combined. The $1,500 is for loyal consumers who pay cash for or finance their new A5 and the $750 is for loyal consumers who lease one.

  • Car_man - Can you please provide me with the lease rates for a 2011 Audi A5 Prestige for a 36 month, 39 month and 42 month lease with 15K miles per year?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I just got the following deal but i'm not sure if this would be the best I can get.

    $42,507 cost. 42 month lease at 12k miles per year with 3750 out of pocket including taxes and fees. That puts me at $601 per month with the following options.

    Premium Plus package
    Nav/cam option
    Everything else standard

    I'd appreciate any help.

    Thank you

    Hi garfield. $800 over dealer invoice is a pretty good selling price for a leased A5. There's probably not a whole lot more wiggle room here, unless the dealer is marking up the money factor that they are using to calculate your car's monthly payment. More likely than not, the dealer isn't, but it doesn't hurt to check. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A5 2.0 Premium Plus Coupe is .00099. Make sure that the dealer uses this factor to calculate your car's payment.

    Also, I personally would try to avoid making such a large down payment on a lease. At lease signing, all you should pay is your car's first month's payment, AFS' $625 acquisition fee, and a security deposit (which I believe is being waived). Even though it means that your monthly payment will be a little higher, it's safer not to make any capitalized cost reduction because that money is often lost if your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered.

    Hi Ilan . There's nothing really wrong with doing a 48 month lease on an Audi.

    On some vehicles, people don't want to lease for more than three years because their car only comes with a tree year warranty and they don't want to drive the final year of their lease uncovered. That is not an issue on Audis because they come standard with a four year warranty.

    Also, AFS' 48 month money factors are slightly worse than its 36 month factors, but not enough to make a big difference.

    I suppose that people are just afraid that they'll get sick of their car before their four year lease is up. It is expensive to get out of leases a year early.

    Let's work up a sample lease payment on the car that you're interested in and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2011 Audi A5 Premium Plus Convertible that has an MSRP of $46,575 and a selling price of $44,900 (around $1,500 over invoice) through Audi Financial Services right now for 48 months with 10,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $533.

    Hi jmdstat. I' be happy to take a look at this deal for you, but it would help if you provided us with this car's full MSRP. The MSRP is necessary because it will enable us to see how large a dealer discount you are being given on this car.

    Here you go, z4maudioman.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00192 and 49%.

    Car_man - Thanks for the info. On this 36 month 2011 A5 prestige - if I was looking for 10000 miles instead of 15000, does the residual go up higher to 57%? I assume money factor stays at 0.00172?
    Thanks
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,518
    No problem, nikmin. Yes, the money factor for a 10,000 mile per year lease remains the same, but the residual value increases by 3%.

    I went to Tysons Audi in DC and had A5 with MSRP $40790. They are offering
    Down payment=$2000
    42mos/lease= 12,000 miles/yr
    Monthly payment= $579
    Includes all maintenance for term of lease

    What do u think?

    Thanks Car Man.

    I just got offered the following, and wanted your take (and anyone elses on here) before I pull the trigger:

    Audi A5 Premium Plus (NOT convertible as you mentioned above), w/NAV and w/with Audi Care. They told me the msrp was $45,370.

    For a 42 month lease, they quoted me $4500 out the door, and $525 plus tax per month. I know its probably more than I should be paying upfront, but I am simply trading in my old car and using that as my downpayment. I called two other dealers, and they couldn't/wouldn't make a better offer. Thoughts? Of course, I would love to do better, but am not sure if its possible.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Car man
    Ordered 2011 S5 coupe premium plus with manual trans, nav, b & o stereo, metallic paint
    MSRP $59,150
    Buy for $56,100 and due for delivery end of August early September in NJ

    Dealer will use same price for buy or lease
    Can you give me lease numbers ( residual / money factor/ monthly rate etc) for a 36 or
    39 month lease at 15k miles a year with minimal out of pocket expenses.

    cant seem to find this info for S5 on the web

    Thanks
  • Having observed several helpful posts here, I'll toss out this for consideration: A5 cab, prem plus, comfort, Nav, wood, Msrp 52250. Dallas area.

    Would like a 4yr lease. I see a variety of experiences on whether initial price shd be invoice + $800 or a little higher.

    Any learned folks willing to weigh in on: competitive lease terms? Price?

    Thanks in advance!
  • Car man-

    I was surprised to see some of the recent rates listed on this thread. Many lower that what I've seen locally.

    I was quoted a MF of over 5% = .0021875 and a residual of 58% on a 2011 A5 premium plus 10,000 mile 36 month lease. Is this consistent with what you've seen recently?

    Many thanks.
