    Car Man - thanks again for your help. What would be the lease numbers for an A7 Prestige, 10k miles per year with a 42 month lease?
  • xmjxxmjx Posts: 44
    Also, when will the 2014 model be released? Thanks!

    You're welcome xmjx. Audi Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 42-month lease of a 2013 A7 Prestige with 10,000 miles per year are .00132 and 49% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I've heard that Audi will publish lease programs for a bunch of 2014 models this month. Their arrival at dealers can't be far behind that.

    I wish to ask if anyone can confirm how the current Audi Loyalty bonus (of $1500 on the A7) is applied when determining the selling price at the dealership. I am aware the Supplier Program 6% is taken off MSRP. As for the bonus, I have heard differently: is it added to Gross cap cost (taxable) and then deducted from drive off fees? Or is it taken off MSRP as well, to arrive at the negotiated selling price? Thanks in advance.
  • CarMan - I am looking to lease Audi A7 in Aug. Not yet decided if it's going to be Premium Plus or Prestige. Few questions where I need your help:
    1. Should I get 2013 or 2014 model? Does it make any difference in pricing?
    2. MF for Aug.
    3. Residual value for 39 and 42 month lease.
    4. I am getting a supplier discount of 6% on MSRP. Is there any other discount that I can get?

    Hi maverickravs80. Audi Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2013 A7 Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00114 and 49% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42-month lease are .00114 and 47%.

    The numbers for a 2014 model are .00179 and 53% for 39-months and .00179 / 51% for 42-months.

    Since you are getting a supplier discount, which model year you go with won't make much of a difference in terms of your vehicle's capitalized cost. In that case, I'd probably go with a 2014 model.

    The lease deal my dealer offered was as follows

    sticker $69,140
    cap cost $63,264.38
    money factor 0.00159

    $2500 down

    $825 a month plus tax

    Good deal?
  • What is the money factor on a 2014 on a 3 yr 26k lease.

  • What are the September residual and MF for 2014 A7 Prestige 15,000 mile/36 month?
  • 53% +1% if you take audi care.
  • What are the money factor and residuals for September on a 36 mo/10k A7 Premium Plus? Thanks.
  • Do you know the money factor? Is this geographic dependent? Thanks again.

    I just hung up from an Audi dealer here in So Cal who told me these are the current residuals on a 36 month lease 10k/month;
    2013 Prestige: 52%
    2013 PPlus: 54%
    2014 Prestige: 55%
    2014 PPlus: 58%

    Not only is the cost higher but the residual is lower on the prestige so I'm figuring i will go with the PP
  • I can't comment on the 2013's, but the 2014 residuals are correct. If you bought audi care, they would be 1% higher. The residual on the gas and diesel are the is the performance...consider the TDI.

    BTW, you can lease a 2014 MB e550 for less than an audi A6 or A7.....something to consider and it's a significantly faster car. Although I prefer the audi A7 diesel, I will pay $150 a month less for the MB e550. Hard to pass that up. I might just have to suffer with the MB :)
  • Thanks. Were you quoted a money factor rates?
  • No one has offered me Audi care - does it end up being a wash since you have an added cost against the 1% higher residual?

    I'm looking at the A7 due to it being 4-door and a hatchback. Coming from an SUV this is an optimal switch. For me it is this or a used Panamera.
  • Based on the deal they first offered me it calculates out to be 0.00190. This is on the PPlus, not sure if it is different on the Prestige. Here was the deal offered.
    68,430 MSRP
    - 2975 Discount
    1500 Down
    36 mos, 10K year, 7.75% sales tax
    He told me he can be more aggressive if necessary - so I assume they could discount more.
  • I was about to buy a panamera until I had my wife sit in way she can drive it (5'0"). A7 TDI would be my next choice, but MB is discounting the e350/550 so much it's hard to resist. I can lease a pretty fully equipped e550 (8 cylinder) for under $800 a month 10K/yr 36 mo lease. If I could get an A7 anywhere close, I'd go that route.

    Yes the 1% pretty much covers audi care, so why not get it...let audi service the car.
  • Leasing Audi 2014 A7, MSRP 68,000.premium plus for $930 for 3months, 10,000 miles 0 down.
  • hmmm....3 months? I assume you mean 30 or 36 mos. Compare that to a MB e550 which is a much faster car for $795/mo 36 mo 10K/yr 0 down with multiple security deposits. It's hard to spend $130 a month more for the audi, at least for me.

    ghstudio, I have both an A7 and a e550 and I understand why he wants an A7, the E550 is the most boring car I ever had, so for me $130 a month more for an A7 are well justified...

    Sadly, there is actually no good lease on an Audi. As Audi leases go, you did OK....but you could have leased a MB e550 for significantly less.

    It's almost impossible to get a decent lease on a jaguar, audi, the new Maserati. MB, BMW and sometimes Porsche are better lease cars.
