I sure do chrislrose. Acura Finance's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a base 2010 TL with 15,000 miles per year in California are .00107 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.
The $2,500 dealer cash that Acura is providing on the base '10 TL is scheduled to run through the end of the month, but I would be very surprised if it wasn't extended.

Couple more questions for the group:
1) Is truecar.com an accurate representation of what people are really paying? It states the average paid for a base TL in california is $32,418. Seems pretty fair to me.
2) They state there is a dealer in my area that will guarantee a price of $31,633, but I have to enter my info for them to contact me. Is Truecar a good site to use? Or has anyone else seen a better internet shopping site I should go through?
3) Using Car_man's numbers am I calculating the correct monthly price based on truecar.com:
Negotiated price: $31633
Sales Tax: 8.750
Term 36 months
Residual 15k : 54%
Money Factor : .00107
Payment (using my iphone app) : $428
$428 out the door with 15k miles including tax seems like a pretty good deal to me. Any feedback is much appreciated!

Ok so Acura of Calabasas accepted right away via truecar.com. I got a call and he basically said yes to the $428/month. Makes me think I should have asked for lower!
because I have one more $500 month payment on my lease he is going to lower the monthly to $412.
One thing that is strange is I notice the advertised lease special has dropped from $430/month to $410/month on their website. I wonder why that is...

I am in LA and I got a TL+Tech about 4 months ago. I found Truecar to be very good. Go back to truecar and price the car again. Then click the "recent sales" tab. That info is even better. You can see that in the past 90 days a few Base TLs were sold for ~$30,400. I would aim at that number.
When I was getting my TL I negotiated with Center Acura on Van Nuys and Glendale Acura. Both offered competitive numbers. I got the TL+Tech for $33,000, which is actually even lower than what Truecar has.
I am glad to see that you have the calculations already done. Now put in $30,400 and use the same residual and MF you got. Then e-mail the internet sales managers at the dealerships with your number. Provide all the math like you have in your post. Ask them if they can make that deal happen.

#2411 of 3085 2010 TL tech lease in NH...
Oct 31, 2010 (4:15 am)
I was offered to move up from my 2008 TL lease two months early into a 2010 complete with tech and ugly beak. No money out of pocket and $454 a month for 12,000 miles or $475 for 15,000. My last lease was for 18,000/year which I do actually drive but I was talked into going for lower miles to drop my monthly payment and because I was also told I could get out of this lease early and renegotiate a new lease for a 2012 next fall. I was also told not to worry too much about mileage due to Acura mileage forgiveness especially if I wanted to get into a 2012.
What do you think? I guess i have to make a decision today to take advantage of the current program.

Why would you lease a car that you consider ugly?

As I stated, my lease is about up so I am hoping I can move into a 2012 in the fall. If they hadn't made me the offer to transfer I would never have leased a G4. I just want to be sure I am not setting myself up for trouble.
#2414 of 3085 TL with Technology - November factors
Nov 01, 2010 (2:23 pm)
Hi Mr. Car_Man
I would appreciate if you can post the November Money Factor and Residual for a
Base 2010 and 2011 TL with Technology Package, 36 months and 12,000 miles per year in South Florida.
Could you please also confirm if Acura is still providing the $3K marketing incentive/cash to dealer on the 2010 TL?
Thanks very much,

Is the new body coming out in 2012? That seems pretty early. Isn't the 2011 only the 3rd year for this body (I could be wrong).
Either way I wouldn't really trust the dealers. Getting out of your lease early, even if you are getting a new Acura, will probably be costly. If you do go over your miles you will need to pay for half of the overage (assuming you get a new Acura).
