    Thanks @kyfdx! My current A4 lease is up in June, and I'm upgrading to the Q5. It looks like Audi has a $750 loyalty rebate going too.

    If you don't mind, I have a lease negotiation question. My understanding is that you don't negotiate lease payments. You negotiate the MSRP and 6% discount, MF, residual, and mileage. And I only pay drive off license & reg, no down payment. I'm aware they can manipulate back end financials to fit whatever payment someone wants.

    Most of the dealers are opening the conversation with payments first (example below). I was planning on redirecting the discussion to the above factors. And I'm using this spreadsheet to estimate payments on my end. http://edmu.in/2ypP6t2

    Dealer "Good evening Melinda, got your email, I'm interested in knowing what's your lease payment you looking for and how much I need to dig below invoice to make it happen?

    Start the other way...

    Take the MSRP, deduct 6%... calculate a payment... figure out the upfronts.

    Then, see how that compares with their offer?
