Audi A4, Car Leasing, Sedan, Wagon

I'm being a bit lazy, cause I'm busy at work and figured I'd ask the expert. I leased a 2007 Toyota Camary XLE so I not a neophyte. This time around I like the Audi A4 quattro. Will I be better off with the 2010 or 09 for residual purposes. I'm looking for 15K a year for 3 years. What can I expect MF and residual. I'm in New England.
Also what about 3rd party lease services? Anybody have any experiences w/ them good or bad.

don't put any money down. If something happens to the car, you will not get that money back. You should only pay the first month's payment, registration fees and any taxes required by law up front. Your payments will be a little higher because you didn't pay the $3000...but you will find that they are about $3000/36 = $83 higher. Guess what, that's just the $3000 spread out over 36 payments. Much safer way to lease.
Ask if Audi offeres a discount for multiple security deposits. If they do, post back here and I'll explain why that's a great deal for you.
Residuals on the 2010 are much higher than on the 2009....of course. If you lease a 2009, the advantage is that you can negotiate a lower price. When coupled with the lower residual though, I'm not sure you're going to save by buying the older model You have to get the dealer to run both deals. Run them with no money down. (don't let them tell you that audi is offering this wonderful deal....the money factors and residuals are independent of the money down.).

Looking to lease a 2010 A4 and at the same time lease a Q5. I am turning in a Q7 and would love some advice on how best to approach a dealer to get the best deal. Should I look to work out each deal by itself or tell the dealer up front that I am in the market for two cars and see if they will deal? Also what is the residual and MF for 12,000 miles (do they have a low mileage like 10,000 miles?)

can someone please post money factor and residual on 2010 A4 Avant premium?
Being quoted MF of 0.00221 (which seems high) and residual of 0.54 (that one does sound good).

What are the current lease rates for a 2010 A4 2.0 Prem+, 10k miles, 36 mths. While I have not seen it quoted here does Audi offer a 39mth rate? Also looking for the current MF.
Also, do you have a historical residuals and MF for A4's? Would like to look at these over the last 3 years by month. I am in the market for two new cars that I would like to lease from Audi, would like to get one new in 30 days but could probably push it off if it makes sense. I am a current Audi owner.
Maybe a more direct question to you is are there better months to lease a car from Audi from based on historical fluctuations. Obviously the rates for the summer sales event seemed pretty good, but the numbers I am seeing here do not seem that great. Would someone be better off waiting until later in the year, maybe Oct or Nov. Doesn't Audi usually have a winter sales event?
#3007 of 4423 Is this a good deal?
Aug 23, 2009 (3:26 pm)
The dealer says I am getting a steal. I have never leased and am not sure if this is worth jumping on. Help is appreciated!

Why are you paying $3000 upfront? You don't want to pay any more than your first month's lease plus title/registration. All other fees should get rolled into the lease. Monthly costs will be higher, total cost over the life of the lease is about identical and you are much safer if something happens to the car.
What is the money factor? what is the residual? and what's your negotiated price for the car that you are capitalizing?
Note: Right now, the residual is higher and the finance charge lower for the quatro. You might just price one out and find that it's cheaper.

Thanks for the reply. Can I ask what would be considered a "good" MF?
I think the residual on the prem plus is .46, Quattro definitely has a better residual, but I haven't prices it out on the Prem Plus, only on the premium, which was a great deal.
