    Hi - I'm looking to lease a 2016 VW Tiguan. I can't find any pricing information for the car since it's just being released. I'm hoping you can help. MSRP = $34,465 and dealer is taking $2,000 off (so $32,465). Reasonable? Also - what are the residual and money factor values for this car? Thank you!

    Hi Michaell

    I was offered for a 2015 AWD Lexus RX 350 with comfort package, dual-screen rear seat entertainment with navigation, premium package with blind spot monitoring, all-weather floor mats, towing package, 19" alloy wheels for $51614. The dealer was giving us a little over$3000 as discount. Is this a good deal? Resale 61%. I'm in Michigan.

    Do you think there would a big price difference between 2016 & 2015?

  • kizersoesa
    I believe your calculation on the residual value is wrong too. Residual is based on MSRP not negotiated price.

  • kizersoesa
    You certainly could have done better than that in some markets. Doing much better in LA and NY, and FL markets. Lot's of hidden $ on these cars right now.

    Hi Michaell,
    thank you again for all your help and advises!

    Could you please give me your opinion on the pricing for 2016 Legacy. Here is what I got quoted from one of the local CO dealers:
    2016 2.5 Limited with Pkg#23 and PP#5 = $26,948 + $499.95 (dealer handling) + my taxes
    2016 6.6 Limited with Pkg#23 and PP#5 = $29,998 + $499.95 (dealer handling) + my taxes

    What do you think about these prices?
    Also, when I inquired about MF and residual couple days ago from the dealer, I was given same residuals as you just gave me, but MF for 2.5 was .0011 and for 3.6 I was given .0014. Is it possible that I was given wrong/old rates? Do you know if there is any hidden lease cash incentive or purchase cash incentive?

    Thank you for your help!

    Thanks for the lease info. What are the incentives, dealer hold backs, etc... on a 36 month 12K lease for a 3 i GT sedan? Had a good deal on MSRP $24985, with a sell price of $22200 all in. Once I mentioned leasing another $1000 shows up in price and/or payments. Is there that much difference in cash or financing vs leasing?

    Hi Michaell, I am in the process of leasing a Buick Encore 1SB in Ohio. I see on Edmunds that incentives for this month includes two Conquest Bonus Cash offers for non-GM lessees; one valued at $1500 ending 8/31/15 and another one $1000 ending 8/3/15. Is that correct? Are these combinable? I appreciate if you could help me. Thanks.

    Thank you for your response to my post. I would appreciate some guidance if you can give it since I am a complete newbie to car buying and don't want to get screwed.

    Im honestly not sure what you mean by the "Real world trade in values" but I brought my volvo to carmax and the guy told me it wasn't worth it to buy out my lease and then sell it to carmax. The reason I guess is because I am currently finishing up a very short lease (24 months) on my volvo and the sale value is lower? than what I could buy it out for. That being said, I only have a month left with the lease that is already paid for. So when I go to the dealer this weekend looking for a new lease, can I ask them if it was possible to roll over the excess mileage that I've accumulated? or in this situation should I just wait until the lease is up, pay the overage and then lease a new car.

    Do you think the evoque is a decent deal at this time? Any ideas on what my monthly payment would be with $0 down at $45,00

    This is what he tells me.
    Nothing like that exists. We have a lot of rebates on the A6 right now, if we order something we expect it to be much higher since they will expire while waiting for the car. The Summer of Audi sales event programs are excellent right now.

    If you are looking for lower and much more choices you should consider the standard seats on a regular premium plus. I think you should come in and meet with someone here and see the difference in person.

    Hi MIchael the discussion we was in is closed.
    Update i communicated with Biener Audi and this is what they are telling me.

    Here's an example lease.

    2016 A6 3.0T Quattro
    Havanna black with nougat brown interior
    Prestige package
    Comfort seating/contour seats w/ massage
    Cold weather package

    36 months, 12k miles per year
    $780/mo with $3,563 due at signing including tax, first months payment, and bank fee.

    Plus they made a big outline as Customer Disclosure with the breakdown of the deal.
    Is not what i want.

    I told them that i want Audi A6 3.0 Prestige with Contour comfort seats with massage and the SLine Sports package Brilliant Black.
