    .00102 and 58% for 36/10 Premium Plus.

    Crystal ball is murky regarding March numbers.

    A few questions if that's okay:

    1. I thought I read that adding AudiCare adds 1% to the residual. Is this true?
    2. Does Audi still take Multiple Security Deposits to bring down the money factor?
    3. Do the .00102 rates still apply to a 39 month lease?
    4. What does the 39 month lease (if offered) do to the residual?

    You guys have been awesome! Thanks again...

    1) Yes
    2) Yes
    3) No... at 39 months, the MF goes up to .00122
    4) Residual is 2% lower than 36 months

    How much do the Multiple Security Deposits lower your money factor?


    I seem to remember @Michaell saying you could do 9 deposits at .00005 each, for a total reduction of .00045

    .00103 and 59% for S3 Premium Plus.

    Be polite but firm when you explain to the dealer that you won't sign any deal with an inflated MF. And, start talking to a second Audi dealer.

    Good Afternoon,

    Been checking out these cars for some time. Looking to finally get serious. I live in the Rochester, NY area and was wondering what the terms would be for 13K miles per year for 36 months unless there is a sweet spot term. This would be my first lease so I'm new to the process.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Moderator. First all of a HUGE thank you for answering all of these questions. I have been using your figures to run analyses and to help during negotiations so again thank you!

    I priced out an S3 P+ Daytona package over the weekend and was quoted MF of .001270 and 56% for 36/15K in CT. Dealer claims not to be marking up the MF. Can you confirm these figures? Also is there a sweet spot with MF for different months 36, 39, 42 since I don't have a preference for term.

    Thanks.

    S3 Premium Plus - .00102 and 55% for 36/15. That looks to be the sweet spot - anything longer and the MF goes up to .00122.

    Dealer is, um, shall we say, "fibbing" to you about the MF mark up.

    What is the "Daytona" package? That might affect the residual numbers, but I don't have any information on that in my documents.

    Thanks. The Daytona package is aka Launch Edition (Daytona paint, red calibers, etc.). I just got another quote for MF 0.00620. Hey, at least the residual is the same across the board. Would you suggest just saying what MF the deal gets done at. Also, the residual is based off of MSRP not negotiated price right?

    Correct... the residual is fixed.

    Tell them that you know the base MF is .00102, and that's the number you want.

    Hey @kyfdx‌ ,

    You've been great with the info. Leasing a 15' S3 Prestige pack. Whats a 36/12 and a 36/15 Residual and MF w/ AudiCare.

    And you say 6% off MSRP is a good Cap cost for leasing?

    .00102 and 53% for 36/15. Add 2% for 12K; add 1% for AudiCare.

    Yes, 6% off MSRP is a good target price.

    Hello,

    Can you please give me the MF and residual for a 2015 S3 Prestige with 7500 mile AND 10000 mile/36 month lease? Also, is 6% off of MSRP still a good goal for the selling price? I'm located in California/Bay Area. Here's what I've been offered so far:

    MSRP $50745
    Selling price $49465
    MF .00129
    Residual 57%
    Miles 7500/year
    36 months
    $2045 drive away
    $735/month including tax

    I think I can do better, do you agree? Thank you.

    6% off sticker is a good selling price target.

    I need your help to check a deal, I'm looking for 10k/36 months in TX for a Premium Plus S3 with all optional packages. The residual is 58% and the base MF? I am being quoted .00142 and I have a perfect payment history with AFS and probably good-very good credit.

    I've shopped around and got dealerships to compete against each other.

    MSRP: $49,785
    Discount: $3,000
    Rebate: $750 + no 1st month payment
    Adjusted Price: $46,035
    Dealer Service $500 (I'm planning on having this crap removed)
    Total Purchase: $46,532

    Dealer Doc: $158
    Tax: $2,908
    Non Tax Fees: $821 (Is this the lease acquisition fee?)
    Net Price: $50,418

    Zero money down: $727 and first payment would be $127 because the rebate works up to $600.

    Thanks a lot!

    Stopped by the local dealer in NJ today and this was what I was quoted for a 2015 S3. Everything due at signing is with $0 down/cap cost reduction.

    $585/month

    MSRP: $44995
    Cap cost: ~43500 (I don't have it written down, but it's roughly what I remember)
    Term: 36 months
    Annual mileage: 12k
    Due at signing: $3733.86, broken down as follows:

    First payment: $585
    Tax: $1474.20
    Acquisition fee: $695
    DMV fee: $396
    Tire fee: $7.50
    Doc fee: $493
    Tax on fees: $83.16

    Anyone finding that these numbers don't seem too wacky for NJ ?

    I get about $566/mo. with .00102 MF and 57% residual. You should verify the MF and residual they are using.

    The numbers are all typical, except I'd want 6% off MSRP (selling price of $42,300), or maybe a little lower, considering that $493 doc fee... most doc fees we see out of NJ are $199-$399. (though all doc fees are just a way of adding dealer profit).

    Any change in numbers for April? Are they avail yet?

    12k / 36 month

    March numbers were 57% residual and MF of .00102 - this still applicable?

    Thanks, kyfdx. I managed to find a dealership over in PA that is giving me the same car for 36/12k for $517/month, $0 due at signing, and waiving the first month's payment ! They're apparently eating all the fees and the tax is rolled into the monthly payment.

    Thanks kyfdx. Dig the rate, but those residuals are pretty rough. Same MF for 48 as 42? What about residual?
