    Thank you for the lease information. Would you please explain how the $1000 lease cash works? The dealer has not mentioned this promotion to me. Thanks again.

    In response to the comments below, the negotiated price is still being discussed but if we assume it is 45,305.00, what are your thoughts?

    How does this sound? 2014.5 Camry LE. 36 months/15k. MSRP $24,020. Sale price 22,492. 0.00001 MF. RV of 13.365. $263/month. The $263/month sounds high to me. Where do I have room to negotiate?
    I'm in Syracuse, NY (don't know if you need that)

    Hi! Thinking about leasing again a Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 with sunroof and navi in NYC. Do you happen to know the current MF and residual value for a 2014 and a 2015 with 7500 and 10k per year with perfect credit? Also currently in a jeep lease with 3 payments to go and the dealer is offering us an out at $439 with taxes in + bank fee 595 + dmv $200. Is this good? I feel like we need to know all the numbers which they did not give us.

    Can you give me the August lease numbers for a 2014 Infiniti QX60 purchased in NC? I'm comparing different factors including fwd/awd, 36-39 months. The things that I'm sure of are 15k/year and premium or better package. Thank you in advance.

    they are quoting me .66 and .0013 MF the 775 +1935+300 = 3010 / 33 = $91.21 don't we add that to your 587.70? that brings it to 679 vs 682, which is close..... what am I missing. thanks!

    Lease quote in NC: 2014 Altima 2.5S, cap cost $22,478, residual 56%, MF 0.0003, 36 mth term, 12000 mileage limit with $0.15/mi over limit. $2,499 due at signing which includes 1st month pmt of $189. Doc fee quoted as 495 and tags 69. Does this all sound right for the Nissan incentive advertised for $189/mth/36 mths? Haven't negotiated anything yet. Is $2310 too much for down payment? (2499-189)

    Thank you for the recent information on an Audi Q5 (00144 and 60%). What would the adjusted MF be with 8 MSDs, assuming .0005 per? Is it possible to reduce the MF to 0?

  • schmidthb

    Michaell - any chance you can share the variables your using to get that payment? I'd like to counter to dealer with that. Many thanks!

    @schmidthb said: Hoping someone can help! I'm looking at a 2014 328i XDrive with MSRP of $50,975 / sales price of $46,900 . Money Factor at .00160 / 63% residual on 36mo / 12k mileage Currently at $613 with $1,880 due

    Feel like I can do better - any help would be most appreciated!!

    MF is marked up from .00130. With your MSRP and selling price with the base MF and 63% RV, I get a pre-tax payment of $513.43. Quite a bit of room to do better.

    • Michaell
      There are lots of lease calculators out on the web where you can plug in the numbers to get the monthly payment.
    • schmidthb
      may I send you my calculations in hopes you can identify where the problem lies? Mulitple dealers don't seem to like!

    Hi Michael, I realize this isnt a Passat but can you please give me the MF and residual on a VW 2014 VW Eos Komfort for 3 years 12k miles. Also what is VW typical acquisition fee. Looks like they have a 1000 rebate too. Thanks

  • mossburgh

    Can you explain the discrepancy in the residual values you quoted for the 2015 premium. In may you said .53 with a MF of .0003 but in July you quoted .63 with a MF of .0009 ??
