    Net Price $64,185
    36 Months lease $3500 Down 10K Miles
    Monthly Lease $806.90
    Now i fond out Money factor is 0.00222 (5.208APR) for a credit score of 820.
    The money factor was not disclosed while signing lease work sheet. Lease is not signed. Dealer bringing the car from distribution center next week.
    Now I am disputing with dealer for this very high money factor. BMW now offer finance 2.89% APR.

    This is response from Saint Louis Dealer.

    " The rate you are wanting of .00140 is not even available from BMW financial on this car. Rates over the last 6 to 12 months have been creeping up. Where we used to be in the 2's rates are easily in the 5's on leases. "

    Please Advice.

    Hi Michael, I am looking at leasing a 2018 GTI S automatic.
    I do not have a trade.
    VW currently has a lease offer 3 years 36/10 with $2499 at signing.
    What is the residual on this car?
    I would like to lease it for 3 years and 10k miles per year.
    The car is currently priced at $25,600.
    What should i offer as a price?
    How much if any would you recommend down?
    What would be a good low payment per month?
