Welcome csimmssu. The easiest way for me to evaluate this deal is to take a look at this car's selling price relative to its full MSRP. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Knowing the selling price makes it easier to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given an in turn if there is any room left to negotiate.
Let us know and I'm sure that myself or another knowledgeable community member will tell you what they think.

Hi Car Man,
I am a recent graduate so this is my first time getting a car on my own and I don't have a lot of significant credit history. I went to an Audi dealership in Houston and this is the deal they offered me for an A4 Sedan Premium FWD 2.0T CVT.
Lease for 42 months w/ 12,000 miles
Adj Cap Cost - $32,126.40
Money Factor - .00120
Monthly Payments - $398.92
Would you consider this a good deal?
Thanks for your help!

I forgot to add that it was a 50% residual.

It makes sense if you put down $1000 not $6000. You better stay away from them. How is your credit history? Maybe you don't have stellar credit history yet?

That's including taxes, title, license, and fees. My credit is ok. I just don't have very much.

I just wanted to see how my lease offer looks when compared to your guys' results:
2013 Audi A4 premium plus
Monsoon grey ext.
MSRP = $44,910
Residual = 55%, $24,948
12k / 36 month lease
Money factor = .00069
Security deposit waived
$675 deposit + $665.91 first payment = total down of $1,340.91 at signing
Base monthly payment = $618.16 + tax = $665.91
Look like a good deal to you guys? I'm planning on pulling the trigger soon...

What is the negotiated sales price? You should be aiming for only a few hundred over invoice, which is $41,830; even less if the car is on the lot.
What other fees are beng charged and rolled into the lease? Payments seem very high to me based on that MF and residual. Using invoice as a sale price, a down payment/deposit of $675, and standard lease acquistion fee of $695 and your posted MF and residual, I get payments of $519 BEFORE sales tax.
If I run the same numbers using MSRP as the sales price, I get $603 per month BEFORE sales tax. DO NOT pay MSRP for this car!

Considering the fact that I have lease numbers for a $63K Mercedes E350 that are $600/month with 15K/year and $1095 drive off...I'd say those numbers you got for a car that is almost $20K less are pretty poor.
