Greetings talk2marvin. Is $31,800 this car's MSRP or is it the selling price that you were quoted for it? You definitely should be able to negotiate a pretty good discount on this car right now. Not only are dealers going to want to unload their leftover 2007 models to make room for new '08s, but Nissan is actually providing a cash incentive on leases of it. Specifically, it is providing a total of $1,500 ($1,000 lease cash + $500 bonus cash) on leases of the 2007 350Z Coupe and $2,500 on the '07 350Z Convertible through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.
Let me know what this car's MSRP and approximate selling price are, or at least its MSRP and dealer invoice price, and I will be happy to use Nissan's current lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be.

Hi Car Man..Maybe you can kill two birds with this one...lol.
I am in the exact same boat and I have exactly the same Question as talk2marvin...I'm Looking to lease a 2007 350Z Coupe - Touring with an MSRP of 33,840. and an Invoice of 31,291. I don't want to put money down If I can help it.
I might caveat this by saying this will be my first time to really research a car purchase like never before, and am hoping that I can get into a sweet deal on a great car. Hope you can bear with my barrage of questions.
It seems to be my assumption based on what I have read, that I want to negotiate the sales price of the car before I work out the lease numbers. Is this the right thing to do? This seems to be nearly impossible, the way dealers load their questioning with the typical barrage of, "Where do you want to be?"..etc....
Other factors and questions to this are:
1. My local dealer does not have the model I want, being the end of the year.
So do I:
A. Go to a dealer with current stock of what I want.
B. Ask him to "Go Get" me what I want.
(Will he charge me for this / Sneek in an additional destination charge? or should this be his Cost of Doing Business to gain me as a customer or lose the sale?)
2. Will it help or Hurt me in telling/showing my salesman a printed TMV form from edmunds or elsewhere. What would/ should his response be to that?
3. What to do about taxes? Should they be worked into the Lease or should I pay them upfront. Some dealers are asking me what do I want to do in terms of taxes.
4. I am comming out of a lease in Jan from another manufacturer...So far Nissan dealers have not asked to "pick-up" my final two payments as others dealers have done.
Is there a way to "not get stuck" paying two lease payments in order to jump on the chance to get an '07 leftover deal.
5. Does dealer Invoice truly mean that is what the dealer paid for the vehicle?
How does this question apply to the smaller dealers vs. the SUPER MEGA AUTOMALLS?
6. Is it Unreasonable to ask to pay invoice price or "close to it" or even "below it" on an '07 leftover in Dec '07 on a "non-luxury brand"?
7. Should I insist on knowing the Money Factor for the lease?
Thanks sooo much...hope that wasn't too lengthy..

Also some more information now on this car. Lease is for 12,000 Mi/yr
MSRP of 35,510 Invoice of 32,481 as it has the 18" chome wheels.
Looking to see what the best deal should be on this lease.
what is the Current Money factor and Residual Value on this car.
for 36 or 48 months based on 12,000 mi/yr
The advertised lease deal is not a deal at all but more like an example...I have already gotten better pricing without haggling yet.

#452 of 475 New 350Z 2008 Touring Convertible Lease
Jul 07, 2008 (11:55 am)
Here is a new lease from a Nissan Dealer in the Dallas, TX area.
2008 350Z Touring Convertible.
Options: 18" Chrome Wheels, Nugaro Red, Aluminum Kick Plates.
MSRP of $42580 ... Invoice price of $39075 ... TMV of $40288
I got the vehicle at $40042.
The Gross Capt Cost (Service contract, Title, Registration, Acquisition Fee) at
Cap Cost Reduction of $3500 .... I know I shouldn't be putting money down on a lease, but this car is for my wife. It allowed me to reduce her monthly payment ... to reduce the monthly pain for her
Adjusted Cap Cost ($41567 - $3500) at $38067
Residual at $22488
39 month lease at 12K miles per year.
Rent Charge of $2739
Money Factor = (Rent Charge / 39) / (Adjusted Cap Cost + Residual) = 0.001160
0.001160 * 2400 = 2.78%
Monthly Lease = $470
Thanks for all the great information provided by this site. It greatly helped me to understand the leasing process.

Here's the information that you're looking for, bajapanty350z. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2008 350Z Coupe Touring with a manual transmission and 15,000 miles per year are .00165 and 64%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00165 and 55%.
The money factors for the '08 350Z Coupe Grand Touring are exactly the same, but its residual values are 62% for 24 months and 53% for 36 months.
NMAC's residual values for leases with only 12,000 miles per year are 1% higher.
