    Hi Kyfdx,

    Hope it's OK that I message you directly. As mentioned in the thread I'm looking at new leases for my wife, we have a baby on the way and I want to make sure we have a car with sufficient room and safety features to accommodate our new bundle of joy. I'm wondering if you have any suggestions, looking to make her payment between 200-270 and I like the Mazda because it comes standard with the blind spot detection and cameras. Any other vehicles that you think I should be considering? I looked at the Subaru forester but with how many miles she needs (15k) and the additional price of Eyesight technology it seems too expensive. Totally understand if you are too busy or not interested in answering. Either way thanks for your info!

    Hey kydfx,

    I'm in a fix here. Just turned in lease on 2nd car and we really need a replacement commuter. We are in NorCal and my wife has a long commute. I recently realized there are some good lease deals on ZEV's and PZEV's. Best of all HOV access! There is little inventory of Plug-in Hybrids i.e. Sonata...

    I am assuming that CA will eliminate the green HOV stickers in 2019 as scheduled. I am more confident that the white HOV stickers reserved for ZEV's will be extended - so I won't be leasing a car solely for Solo HOV access only to lose that privilege 2 years in.

    We really need to find a lease for less than $350/mo. I was accepted in the Hyundai Tucson Hydrogen Fuel Cell test but the advertised payment is $500/mo! And no sign of inventory for this slightly inconvenient fuel option.

    Do you have any thoughts on the matter? Any EV's with great lease deals come to mind?

    Thanks so much, Tim

    Hi kyfdx:

    I'm looking at a 2017 Audi S7 Premium Plus.
    MSRP: $90,085
    Negotiated Price: $81,100
    Lease Term: 36/12
    MF: .00156
    Residual: 57%

    The MF seems high. I'm being told that is their "buy rate" - no mark up. Can you tell me if the MF is marked up?

    Thanks in advance for your help and response.

    Hi kfdx,

    I am living in San Jose CA and interested in leasing the 2017 bmw i3 electric.
    Can you post the current lease incentives and terms that are going on?

    The leasing offer from bmw website says:
    "...Offer not valid in Puerto Rico. Lease financing available on a new 2017 BMW i3 Range Extender from participating BMW centers on leases assigned to BMW Financial Services through January 03, 2017. Monthly lease payments of $319.00 for 36 months based on MSRP of $50,145.00. $4,244.00 cash due at signing is based on $3,000.00 down payment, $319.00 first month payment, $925.00 acquisition fee, and $0.00 security..."

    Somewhere they say $7500 fed tax credit included...

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Kyfdx,

    I am trying to get the same deal that I saw Louie get on a Chevy Volt 2017 LT Leather and Comfort package

    Here are the numbers he listed.

    I don't get the same when I do the calculations. Could you break it down for me. Only difference is 9% tax since I'm in LA

    - MSRP $36,155
    - Dealer Discount $3,959K
    - GM Lease Incentives $7860 ($6860 lease cash + $500K bonus tag + $500 lease conquest)
    - Term: 36 months / 12K
    - MF .0004
    - Residual 50%
    - Tax = 8% (SoCal)
    - Zero Cap Cost Reductions
    - Pay all drive-off fees up front (Taxes on rebates, Registration, Doc, Lease Acquistion, etc)
    - Payment = $204 / month

    Also do you know which dealer he used? Would love to get this deal tomorrow.

    Thank you so much for your time!

    Best,

    Ryan

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you could help me find a vehicle to lease. I am looking not looking for anything specific, but would like to find a vehicle with the highest residual value (68%+ on a 36/10k).

    Do you have a list/know of vehicles that meet my request (Dream)?

    Thanks!

    I have several questions :) Live is Los angeles. Car is 2016 Range Rover Sport, Fuji white/black seats/piano black panels. Price $79066.00, discount $3000, Final Price $76,066.00. One Time Lease Pay $36,000 at 39 months. That would mean Im paying $923.08 per month if you break it down (does that include taxes/fees?) . Shouldn't I get a better deal for one time pay? Am I still paying interest? Is the interest on the residual? Could you break that down? Overall What's the break down of the money factor and residual? I need a large business tax write off for this year. Would it make more sense to purchase the car? What are the pros/cons with lease on this car vs. purchase (accounting my tax need situation but still making the best choice and not getting stiffed)?
    Also, I currently have a 2013 bmw 328i convertible white exterior/red interior with M package at 24995 miles. Lease is due now. Should I buy it and negotiate it into deal, what is pro/con with this factor too? Thanks!!!

      Why in the WORLD would you pay that much ?? I just finished leasing a 2014 Ford Explorer Sport with twin turbo rated at almost 400hp AWD. It was an amazing car but outgrew it with 3 kids and now wife wants a minivan.
      Do your pocket book a favor and check out the new Ford Expolorer SPORT (*Make sure it's sport or the power won't impress you) and then use the extra money I just saved you to take a really nice vacation for a couple of weeks :)

    Hello,

    I was hopeful that you could help me evaluate a Lease I was considering on an Infiniti. You had created a forum specific to the Q70, but wasn't sure If I should comment here or there. In any event, please let me know if you can assist and I can provide the details. Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    will it be ok to use last moth numbers? Do you have those?
    I'm looking at 2017 Sanata Fe Sport AWD with ultimate package in IL zip code 60076.
    Is there any other place where I could get December numbers?
    Do the money factor ad depreciation numbers differ from state to state?
    Thanks very much.

    Hi,

    I'm looking into a 2017 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD, 10,000/year for 39 months. What is the money factor and residual?
    In addition, with the same mileage of 10,000/year for 36 months. What is the money factor and residual?

    Thank you and happy holidays.

    Would you be kind enough to offer the MF and residual for a 2017 Limited Pacifica for 12,000 miles in Miami.

    Thanks
