    Can u tell me the lease numbers for 2016 Regal, Premium 2 package? I'm interested in 36 month 12k miles per year. Or any other lease deals that seem to be better than the norm.

    What is the expiration date on lease cash and is the lease cash factored in after negotiating price?

    Hi Michael,

    I'm looking to lease a WRX Premium 6MT, price I'm quote is around $27800. Lease is 36 months 12k miles. I live in NY and most likely getting it from dealer in NJ, so I'm not sure what tax rate it will be. Can I get some numbers as in terms how much it will be after tax? And also the MF and the residual please. I will be talking to the sales later today through the phone so I want some numbers to compare to his. Lastly I will probably be putting down $2000 upfront.

    Hi Michaell, I'm talking to Volkswagen about a lease of the e-Golf. They did a credit check and said I have excellent credit, and then stated a money factor of 0.00155. With interest rates as low as they are, does that sound 'excellent' to you? It's for a 36 month lease with 12k miles/year.

      Just to add: quoted residual of $14,390 (which is consistent of a # I got from another dealer). MSRP of $36,415 for 2016 e-Golf SEL (- fed and state tax credits).

    Hi Michaell:

    I just get a new offer for X3 x28i

    10k/36month. $5000 down payment $561/month after tax (tax is 9.8%)

    Does the payment sounds right? This is my first time leasing and any help will be appreciated :)

    Hi Michaell,
    Can you please let me know what is the Residual and MF for 2015 QX60 AWD? 39MO/12k
    I believe the Residual for 12k is 57%. I exchanged e-mail with a Infiniti dealer in Maryland and he gave me a MF of .00056 which does not sound right?

    Hi Michaell-

    Thanks for catching the money factor error. You are correct. This is in SoCal (LA area), also, I agree and thought it was odd that the $38K number is higher than MSRP which makes no sense. the OTD of $41k includes TTL fees. Tax rate is 9.25% depending on where you buy the car. I agree that the OTD higher than MSRP is crazy.

    cap cost reduction: 4168
    adj cap cost 42299

    We are planning to buy a 2016 Outback, 2.5i Premium in California by Oct31. What is the current money factor and residual value for a 12K, 36M lease? On a Subaru factory lease what is a likely up-front payment, acquisition and or disposition fees?

    Is the Costco negotiated price likely to be the best price? Do you have the percentages of the discounts to compare the Costco pre-negotiated price with Edmunds, Kelly, Consumer Reports, pre-negotiated prices?
