Welcome justmeinva. Here's the information that you're looking for.
Acura's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 TL Tech with 12,000 miles per year are .00116 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.
When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $2,000 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of it.
There's nothing wrong with trying to get some extra options thrown in if you want, but the most important thing is to negotiate the lowest total price for the car that you want, including all of these options. If I was in the market for an '11 TL right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of around $500 over invoice minus the aforementioned cash incentive.

First post. I'm looking for an Acura TL AWD with Tech. Must have at least 18K miles/yr since I drive a lot for work (sales). Zero out of pocket, looking for a 24 mos lease but will do 36 mos if needed. I will not keep the car after the lease.
What should (realistically) I expect My monthly lease payments to be?, I live in Jersey.
Thanks a bunch.

I would start by looking up what the TL is going for in your area. Go to truecar.com and price it there. Then click the "recent sales" tab. Aim for a sales price that is closest to the left bar graph.
#2545 of 3085 need help with lease ASAP??
Feb 23, 2011 (9:40 am)
I need some advice...going to the dealer this afternoon....these are the two quotes I got. I really want the nav system, but prices seem high. Dealer told me on the phone that there is NO room to negotiate....which is the better deal? I can't seem to find the "Added Costs" to the lease?
2011 TLw/tech package
Selling price $34,535
Monthly $455.36 ($417.76 + tax)
Due at signing: $37.60 + $193.50 = $231.10
Selling price $31,690
Monthly $394.36 ($361.80 + tax)
Due at signing: tax on first payment $32.56 + tags/reg $193.50 = $226.06
Are these payments comparable to what others are paying?? Thanks for your help!

There is always room to negotiate.
Check truecar.com for the prices in your area. I typed in my zip code (Los Angeles), both of the sales prices are a little high.
I wouldn't go to the dealership. I would use this calculator to recalculate the numbers with a lower sales price.
Then e-mail that to the dealer.

#2548 of 3085 6MT vs 5AT residual values
Mar 10, 2011 (7:32 am)
I did a search on this forum and didn't see this topic discussed in a while. Car_man, all things being equal, does the 2011 TL with manual transmission have a lower residual value than one with an automatic? I know when it comes to trade and resale values, manuals usually suffer.

Hi Carman, can you please post the MF and RV for a 36 month 12k lease on a 2011 Acura TL base?
#2550 of 3085 too good to be true?
Mar 20, 2011 (11:13 pm)
I got the following quotes from a central texas dealer yesterday on a 36 month/10,000 lease:
TL base $292 per month all in, nothing down
TL tech $344 per month all in, nothing down
These seem amazing, but he said there are all kinds of incentives for big dealerships right now on the TL, and the money factor is lower than it's ever been--.00101. These prices are after taking off $1600 for a trade in on my current '08 TSX. Can this be right? Sorry I don't have the cap. cost on each. I was so stunned by the monthly numbers (which really is the bottom line for me) I didn't get those down.

You're right about the resale values of vehicles with manual transmissions usually being lower than similar vehicles that are equipped with auto, jbhansen. However, I don't believe that Acura makes any adjustment to its vehicles residual values for the transmission that vehicles are equipped with.
