Lease buy out question

I have a 2014 1.8t SE that is set to go back in June of next year but I really really like the car. I like to do my research ahead of time and I see my residual value will be around $13900, is there any negotiation from VW to get this lower for a buyout? I ask becuase I see trade in value now is around 12k so I will be on the wrong side to buy out but the great side to walk away.

    No way to negotiate the buy out value. It was possible years ago but the lease banks now have insurance to protect them if the value of the car is less than the residual value.

    Given VW's issues, you may be able to lease a new VW next June for a price similar to what you're paying now.

    I just leased a Jetta in August and am paying $8/mo more than I was on my 2013 Hyundai lease.
