    I certainly do Rich. Audi Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 42-month lease of a 2014 A7 Prestige with 10,000 miles per year are .00179 and 51% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Hi naveen381. Here's the information that you are looking for for top credit tier customers:

    2014 A6 Prestige 39 / 10: .00159 / 52%

    2013 A6 Prestige 39 / 10: .00099 / 50%

    Don't go with a 42-month lease. The program for that term is less attractive and you miss out on the payment waiver offer.

    Hi Carman,

    Do you have the MF for a 2013 Audi A6 2.0T Premium Plus Quattro 15k mile lease for 39 months?

    Hi carman,
    Given the relatively unattractive rates for July I opted to roll the dice and not lock in rates for the S6 I ordered to be delivered in October. Can you please provide the lease terms for August when they come available? 2014 S6 12k/36 months. Thanks again.
  • I am looking at a lease on a 2013 Audi A6 3.0T Prestige - all packages - MSRP $62k - dealer offering for $56k plus tax. Lease coming out to $834/mo with 2000 down.
    To me this seems high coming from my BMW lease. What is a reasonable lease payment?
    I need 36 months/10k miles.

    Also any thoughts regarding this car vs BMW 535xi M sport package?

    Jas8. The residual on a 2014 s6 12k 36 mo lease is 53%. FYI, the same lease on an s7 has a residual of 55%.

    Any special lease mf or residuals for the 2013 A6 that the dealers are trying to clear off the lots to make room for the 2014s? Specifically 12k miles and 36 months. A family member just got a 2013 bmw 7 series for 10k under invoice. Thanks!

    Here's the quote I got and I'd appreciate feedback on how good it is (particularly the residual and MF). They're wanting me to buy the car on Saturday (the end of the month).

    2014 A6 Prestige
    MSRP: 65795
    Price: 62788
    Mileage: 10k/year
    Residual: 51%
    MF: .00191
    3 Year Lease

    I am looking at the audi residual value sheet for 2014 audi cars valid from 8/6/2013 to 10/01/2016 and the residual for a 2014 A6 prestige with 3.0 engine and 10K/yr is 54% NOT 51%. It would be 51% if you were leasing for 15K/year….tell their finance guy to look at the bottom of the page for the adjustment for 10K miles (as if he didn’t know  )

    Note…you can reduce the money factor by making multiple security deposits. Audi allows up to 9 deposits and for each one, reduces the money factor by .00005. For 9 deposits (effectively loaning Audi 9 monthly payments which you get back at the end of the lease…it’s a security deposit, not a capital cost reduction), you will reduce your mf to .00146 and that will reduce your monthly payment by about $50. Think about that….you will save about $1800 by loaning Audi roughly $7200. Can you make $1800 on that $7200 somewhere else??? It’s a great deal that few know about…and that includes dealers who may claim..Audi doesn’t offer it. Audi does offer it..make them check. Unfortunately, if you are in New York state, MSD’s aren’t allowed which is why so many in NYC lease their cars in NJ where it is allowed.

    Good luck…

    A couple of more thoughts to confuse you.

    Consider the diesel....the residual is 56% and there is a $1500 cash deal (see the audi web pages) on it. Drive one. Remember it's far more fuel efficient.

    Audi care would add 1% to the residual as well.

    My bet is that the best lease (and the best car) would be the A6 diesel with audi care for 36 mos using the maximum multiple security deposits.

    Finally, you can likely lease a MB E350 for $100 less than the audi A6...and an E550 for about the same money per month. You can lease a Lexus GS350 for $150 less and that's with the F package. I've compared them.

    Thanks ghstudio!

    All good advice from ghstudio..

    I will note that the money factor quoted looks to be marked up, as well...

    I show base rate for top tier to be .00130

  • I have a question for you ghstudio, and thanks for the information you have posted. Why is the Lexus available for so much less a month? I read somewhere on these forums that BMW for example have a better lease program so even for the same sticker price the lease terms can be more attractive than Audi. Do Audi just have a relatively uncompetitive program?

    The "problem" with audi leases is their residuals...their money factor/interest is competitive. Near as I can tell, MB loses $5K or more on every lease my current e350 CDI has a residual of $46K in my lease. It's actual value at Manheim auction is about $30k. Someone is eating that difference...but it's not me.

    I had bad numbers for MB from a dealer that apparently didn't want to take the time to lease me a car....the lexus actually comes in between the A6 and the e350. The difference in residuals between the audi A6 and MB is at least 10% (depending on which A6 you has different residuals for prestige, prestige plus and premier and then by engine.....crazy. I can lease an e350 10k miles/yr for 27 mos with a residual of 70%. Audi really quotes 36 mos and for an a6 premium plus with audi care, it's 58%.

    There is also a difference in the mf reduction with multiple security deposits which makes another difference. MB is essentially giving away E350's right now.

    Lexus has a sale in August and December of each year....the august rates on the GS were very attractive.
  • Thanks for taking the time to reply, really useful since my current lease is up in a matter of months. The more information I get the less justifiable the A6 is becoming. I hadn't seriously considered the Lexus or the MB but now I will.
  • jas78jas78 Posts: 12
    Thanks, ghstudio. Do you have the money factor available for 12k/36mo 2014 S6 as well? Debating weather I should go lock in the rates now or if I should wait until delivery in November. Any input is greatly appreciated!
  • S6 residual is 51% or 52% with Audi Care for 36 mos.
  • Hello Friends,

    I live in NYC and am looking to get my first new car in a few years.

    With that said it seems like things have changed since the crisis.

    We're looking to get an A6 2.0T Quattro with the Premium Plus package. The best deals I've been seeing are $500/month with $4K down before taxes and fees and the tax is 8.875% in NYC, which is high.

    Has anyone had any good success negotiating better deals in the area. Where we lived before the tax was much much less. My goal is to put $4K down and spend upto $600/month, but that isn't looking likely!

    Please help!
  • Which dealership had that offer? We're looking for an A6 equipped similarly and trying to offset the high taxes in fees with a similar deal.
  • Carman - What are the money factor and residuals for September on a 36 mo/10k A6 Premium Plus? Thanks.
  • Looking for residual and money factor for audi a6 premium plus. 10k miles. 36 months (or another term if there is a "sweet spot" at 27 or 33 or 42 . . . . ). I will assume audi maintenance package still adds a residual point?? Thanks!
  • also, is there any acquisition incentive for getting me out of a mercedes? any loyalty cash for my second audi?

    You should NOT be looking at $4000 should be looking at $4000 or more in multiple security deposits which will save you more money on your lease, despite the higher (appearing) monthly lease cost.

    Since you live in NYC, multiple security deposits aren't allowed....go to NJ and lease there (many, many do) where they are allowed. Note: there are only a very few states that don't allow multiple security deposits. No idea's a good, safe way to reduce your monthly payments and earn about 10% on your money while doing it. I've used multiple security deposits on MB, BMW, Infinitis over the past 10's a great deal for those that know about it (and most dealers don't or tell you it's not significant. I consider 10% on my money pretty significant).

    a6 premium plus 10K 36 mos residual is 57% (diesel and gas are the same). There is no sweet spot...all of audi's leases are expensive. add 1% if you buy audi care.
  • Does it not matter that the car will be tagged in NYS? That's how tax is sorted.

    Can you give me an overview of the multiple security deposits? I don't fully understand.
  • Thanks, ghstudio. Do you happen to know buy rate on money factor?
  • multiple security deposits are based on where the lease is written, not on where the car is registered.

    MSD's in a loan mercedes 10 monthly payments...they lower the money factor by .0007 and you wind up paying $50 or more less per month. At the end of the lease you get the security deposits back...unlike a capital cost reduction where you don't get anything back. Think of the capital cost reduction as $4000/36 or add $111 to whatever monthly payment they are quoting you. With MSD's you will pay less than that....effectively making 10%+ on the money you loan MB.
  • Hello,

    Does anyone know Audi Financial's September buy rate lease Money Factor and Residual Value for a 42-month lease of a 2014 A6 2.0T Premium Plus quattro with 12,000 miles per year and top tier credit? I live in the Los Angeles area.
