    do you work for a dealership? I'm about to make a deal on an A6 lease coming out of an A4 lease. They are early terminating for 2 months, but I also only have 16,500 miles on a 36000 mile lease. In the past I have been able to use the equity to pay out of pocket fees. When I called Audi Financial they said that my payoff quote is different than what the deal quote would be. Something about the dealer getting fair market value or something. If I sent you the vin number, would you be able to get a dealer payoff amount? I'm actually heading to the dealer later this afternoon.

    Getting a deal lease 2014 e350w rwd sedan MSRP$56,965 got a discount for $10,200 off. Sale price came to $46,785 with total on road including tax, tag, document fee comes to $50,165. Dealer wants $2k down and 15k/27months $552 monthly payment. MF.00136 and residual 65%. Is this a good deal? Can the money factor get any lower? He said he gave me the best? Or anything else I can do to get it down anymore? Also, throwing in maintenance package. I've read a lot of your posts. Thanks for all of your advice.

    Hi,

    I am currently trying to lease a 2014 BMW 428i convertible. Here are the terms, are they good? My issue is the payment. I am having an issue confirming this payment is correct.

    Lease term: 36 months/12,000 miles

    MSRP $58,725 Sales price: $54085 (Initial cap cost) Add cap cost: $? Adjusted Cap cost: $? Due at signing: $1,400 Money factor 0.00130 Residual: 62% Monthly payments: $630 plus $54 tax (tax rate 8.5%) Is this payment correct or is it high?

    I am also thinking of another configuration for MSRP $60,900 and Adjusted cap cost of $56260 same with everything else. I am in California.

    Please help???!!! ; )

    I have recently leased a Mazda and am wondering if I can install an aftermarket remote starter. My salesperson says it would void the warranty but paying $500 for something my usual installer charges $239 for, seems outrageous. If you have an answer, please respond quickly and I am getting ready to do this. Thanks.

    kyfdx, I would love some help on leasing in general. I am looking at a Jetta Sportwagon TDI, but have the Sorento, the CRV (we are Honda people), and the CX9 in mind as well. Can you tell me the one you like best, taking into account the reliability and the expected value it will hold? I know nothing about any of them except the CRV (have owned two in the past and 8 Hondas in all) and the Sorento cousin, the Santa Fe (which had major transmission issues about 140,000 miles). Also, I'm guessing it's possible to lease any new vehicle, whether the dealer is giving incentives or having a special, correct? I drive more than 12,000 a year but plan to buy the vehicle at the end of the lease (I did that with a 1997 CRV, and it was the easiest vehicle transaction I ever experienced). Finally, I don't know the .0000?? term you talk about, but in my limited knowledge it seems like the residual, purchase-at-end-of-lease is one of the mort important things. (I'm leasing to keep low payments.)

    Ive learned plenty from your responses to lease questions regarding the 2014 Honda Sport(ie MF, cap cost, etc). However, one question still remains. What if you need to shorten the term of the lease from 36 months to 24? How do you calculate that into your negotiation. Thanks

    Dear CarMan: You have been most valuable with your insight so thanks, in advance! Quick questions: is there loyalty cash available from BMW FS for existing customers? If so, does it replace the $2,000 build credit they are currently offering? Thank you.

    Hi Kristie, I wanted to add some more info on the lease. Please do share your input about my lease/MF rate:. **Leased an E350 in Feb 2014. 3 years/12,000 miles for 2014 E350,Paid $2500 Down. Monthly Lease Payment is $704. Final Capitalized Price: $53,100 **includes Acquisition Fee[$795] and maintenance for 3 years, plus Premium 1 Package, Lane tracking, Rear Deck Spoiler, Comfort Box, 3 Spoke Sport Steering Wheel, Keyless-Go Hands Free Access, 18" AMG Wheels, Lane Tracking Pkg: Blind Spot, Freight Charges.
    My Credit score is above 810, the dealership states that I am considered Tier1, I am getting the best interest rate 3.95 APR. However, in the lease papers, I noticed that they have applied the MF rate of 0.00265 and according to them, this MF rate is pretty much fixed and non-negotiable as it is set by Mercedes Leasing/Financial services and they have no control over it. I believed them and leased the car. Now to confirm the effective APR they used, I multiplied this MF rate of 0.00265x2400 and it arrived to an APR of 6.36% and not 3.95% that I was initially promised?? :( I have already leased the car. Reviews posted on Edmunds forums and MB Forums for e350 show the MF rate is actually lower than what I was offered and could have been negotiated?? I am confused here, as the 3.95% APR that I was shown in the estimate does not match up with the MF rate in the final lease papers. I had specifically asked the dealer about this MF Rate before signing the lease and the dealership states that this is fixed by MB Leasing company and that I can call up Mercedes Leasing directly and ask them about the Money Factor, But they simply cannot lower them. I have already leased the car now. I would appreciate any inputs in this and if I have any options here. Cheers!!

    Hi kyfdx,

    I had no idea about the $1500 of incentives. Is today the last day? I hope not! The dealer called me once, I was at a meeting, and asked him to call me back and he never did. I used TrueCar btw

    I'm looking at the sheet I printed out. It looks like this...

    Base Msrp - 39,800 Total Options - 4,150 (Cold Weather Pkg, Premium Package $4,150) Dest. Fee 925 Total MSRP - 44,875

    then -$5,485 (off a base MSRP of $39,800) Drive credit -$1,000 - 375 on options with an MSRP of $4,150 - 100 Amex Card Member (expires today)

    Dealer Price - $38,915 +Doc Fee 75 Total $38,990 (excluding NY Long Island tax, Title)

    Invoice MSRP - $36,616 total options - 3,775 Dest fee 925 Total Invoice $41,315 Add Doc Fee 75 Total Total $41,390

    This doesn't reflect the Drive credit of $1,000, $100 amex. So where is the $1,500 taken from. I am totally confused.

    What should be the best deal? Thank you kfdx.......

    I still don't know what the MF or residual is... I don't know what the monthly lease would be
