  • Hi Car Man,

    Can you let me know what the Audi Financial Services lease rate for October is? I'm going in this weekend to look at the A5 I want, and I want to be ready with that information. Thanks!

    This is what I am getting in Dallas:
    "
    M.S.R.P. $44,805
    36 month, 12k per year lease. $3270 for TT&L + $730 for first months payment. Your payments wiould be 35 payments of $730 a month.
    "

    This seems quite a bit higher than most of the other quotes I have seen on this website. Please tell me if you what you think.
  • Car-Man, I've been shopping 2011 15 cabriloet premium plus with Nav. for 42 month lease with 10k per year and only first month and dmv upfront. I'm in New york. The last quote I received was $784 per month for car with MSRP of $51,425 and apparent selling price of $50,135. There are not many cars to choose from on long island. Is this a decent figure or should I wait until later in the month for a lower number? Thanks so much.
  • hey, mindar92-ask your dealer to check with US Bank instead of Audi Financial. I just got last month a 2011 A5 Cab with an MSRP of $48,885(premium plus but no nav) at 42 months/12k per year and $1,000 total out of pocket for $650/month which was much lower than Audi Financial. Good luck, there are only a few cars out there in the tri state area right now!
  • Thanks seaweed1. But did your dealer originally quote you with audi financial and then requote with us bank on your recommendation? what was your sale price?

    Hi swiss79. Let me begin by saying that I am not intimately familiar with what the market is like for the A5 right now. The car that you're interested in probably has a spread of around $2,800 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That puts a $1,000 dealer discount at around $1,800 over invoice. Obviously there some profit to play with there, but I don't know how deeply dealers are willing to discount this car right now.

    The money factor that you were quoted looks great, it's right in line with Audi Financial Services' current buy rate for this model.

    If you have the time and you are so inclined, you might want to do some comparison shopping to see if you can beat this selling price by $500 to $1,000, but again I don't know how deeply dealers are willing to discount the A5 right now.

  • Hey cky1026. Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A5 Coupe Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00172 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

  • Hi mindar92. The dealer discount of slightly over $1,000 that you were quotes is basically in line with what I have seen other consumers quoted for the A5 lately. Still, all things being equal it never hurts to wait until late in the month to negotiate. Dealers might be more willing to discount then.

  • yes, they did originally quote with Audi and then came in much lower with US Bank. The sales price was $48,530.53. I am not sure how all this works but on the contract the amount due at lease signing says $3,197.58 but I only gave them $1,000.00.

    Audi (VW Credit) is the first leasing company to engage in this despicable behavior that i've dealt with.

    At lease end, if your residual is attractive and you decide to sell the car to a dealer, don't expect them to sell it at the residual value.

    VW Credit will try to sell it to the dealer at something like private party sale which is likely well above your residual. (i.e. residual mght be 23k and they will ask the dealer to pay $28k for the car.) It's the most ridiculous thing.

    I should comment that i was dealing with non-audi dealers. i dont' know if they would try to screw their own dealers out of purchasing the car.

    They will only honor their residual if the lesee buys the car themselves. They will not honor it if you trade the car in at the end of the lease.

    What a Joke. Last time I ever deal with Audi and their finance company. You want to be a Luxury brand, then act like one. Not some cheap dishonest used car dealership.

    CarMan, can you give me the latest money factor / residual for A5 Cabriolet with 15,000 miles? Looking at Prestige package with comfort seats. Not sure of duration - thinking 36 months. Does audi have substantially different residuals on either side of 36 months? Thanks very much

    Hi Car man.

    I forgot to add in my post above that this was for a 42 month lease as well.

    Does this seem like a good deal to you? For the $647.30 a month incl tax in san Diego?

    Thanks.

    Hi isv1. The car that you described probably has a spread of around $3,000 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That probably puts the $2,000 dealer discount that you were quoted at around $1,000 over invoice. While I am not intimately familiar with that the market is like for the A5 right now, a grand over plus the use of all of the available incentives sounds reasonable to me.

    Just make sure that the dealer that you are working with uses Audi Financial Services' 42-month buy rate lease money factor of .00174 to calculate your payment and you're in business.

    Hello,

    Does anyone have the information for 2011 Audi S5 at 15k/yr for 36 and 48 months?

    Thank you!
  • My bmw 535xi comes off lease end of dec. What kind of monthly payment, residual, money factor am I looking at for a new 2011 s5 auto. How much over invoice will I have to pay? and any other info. you folks have...thx, Yink63
  • Hi Car Man,

    I am trying to negotiate leasing an Audi A5 with Premium Package, Nav and Sports package. The price they are quoting is $46,840 ... $668 plus tax per month with a drive off of $1361 for a 42 month 15K miles per year lease. Based on info in this thread ... the residual on a 39 month lease is 46%. If I do the math that means that I am paying $21,546.40 over 39 months which equates to approxiamtely $552.47 plus tax per month ... so they are trying to soak me. :( Correct? Please let me know.

  • Car Man,

    Would love to get your input on the residual value and money factor on a 10,000 mile 36 month lease on a 2011 A5 premium plus (somewhat urgent)

    I've been quoted a 57% residual without AudiCare and a 58% residual with audicare and a MF of .00154.

    Does this sound right?

    Thanks!
  • Yes that is correct you are now ready to buy......
  • Well I'm close.

    Is the residual ever negotiatable? Are you sure its only 58%? That seems low for a 10k lease 36mnth

    thanks
  • Car Man,

    What is the money factor and residual for a 2011 s5 coupe w/prestige package?

    Thx,
  • Hey guys,

    Still waiting for an answer to my residual/mf question above. But in the mean time, can anyone who has leased recently tell me what the buy out stipulation are both for an early buy-out and end of lease buy-out? I imagine the latter is pretty simple, and based on residual, but what happens in the early situation?

    Thanks!
  • Hello fkoro. Audi Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 S5 Coupe Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00166 and 56%, respectively.

    1. When do December Lease numbers come out for the A5?

    2. Looking for MF & Residual % for a 48 month, 15K Mile lease on an A5 Coupe Quatrro (automatic transmission)?

    3. Do any of the options (e.g. - Prestige package, etc.) effect the MF or Residual %? If so, which ones and by how much? I have not decided on options yet and your answer may affect my decision.

    4. How much over invoice ($$ or %) is a good deal these days for this vehicle in the Northeast (Pennsylvania)?

    5. If some other time period other that 48 months is clearly a better deal for this vehicle, please let me know. The warranty is 48 months so I usually lease cars to match the warranty unless the MF/Residual % are out of this world for a different time period.

    Thanks a ton in advance for your help. YOU ARE THE MAN!!!

  • ivanl3ivanl3 Posts: 30
    Need the same info for 42 month 15K please. Negotiating now, really hope you respond soon.
  • We went to two dealerships this weekend looking to lease an A5 and we're just not yet happy with the deals we're being offered.

    We were told the best deal right now is with a 42 mo lease - Is that accurate? We're very flexible on the length of lease

    For a 2011 A5 Coupe Premium Plus we were quoted .00174 and 54%
    MSRP: $46,100
    Sale Price: $43150
    $4k down
    = Payment of $528 per month

    Is there any other lever we could pull from what you see to get this lower? I'd be happy with the $528 per month if we were only putting $2k down for tax, title, fees

    The key is we can't find the actual combination of features we want in our area - Every model we can find is more expensive than what we actually want... I hate to pay for extras we don't want/need

    Thanks so much!!

    There does seem to be a supply problem w/ these cars. I negotiate from Invoice up, not MSRP down so I cannot tell your if your sale price is fair. I just finalized a deal at $700 over invoice (equates to 1.86% over invoice).

    Your money factor looks right.,

    As for residual %, I learned that they are option dependent (lower for premium plus and prestige vehicles). I was lucky enough to get a vehicle without these options. The lower residual % on cars with those options is acknowledgment by Audi that those options do not hold their value over the life of the lease. Sounds like you are being forced to buy options you don't want and have them effect your residual %. They are getting you coming and going. I would keep shopping (call other dealers) until you find a car closer to the build you really want; then negoitate.
  • Anyone have an update on the Dec lease terms for:

    12,000 / year
    36 month
    A5 Premium Plus
  • Hi ivanl3. Audi Financial Services' December buy rate lease money factor and residua value for a 48 month lease of a 2011 Audi A5 Coupe Premium quattro with 15,000 miles per year are .00193 and 51%, respectively.

    The money factors for all trim levels are the same, but the residual value for the Premium Plus drops to 47%. The residual for the Prestige drops to 43%.

    The money factors and residual values for a 36 month lease are better, but that doesn't mean that this car would be less expensive to lease for that term. The 48 month lease will probably be less expensive.

  • Car man,
    A dealer I visited quoted the MF for a 2011 A5 auto prem plus; 12K 36 month lease as 2.49%. I can't bridge how that converts into the 0.00154 that you have mentioned. Can you help me with this?

    Thanks
  • Hi all, all these number crunching is making my head spin and never realized leasing was so complicated. Basically I am looking to lease a 2011 A5 Prestige Package and I was quoted $679 for a 42mo lease for 10k miles/yr (I believe) and taxes + inception fees due at signing. Can anyone tell me if this is a fair deal or not? At face value from what I've seen from some sites, this sounds like on the higher end...thanks for all the help in advance
  • ok, I'll take a look there first
