So, what am I missing when I look at the advertised deal on Mazda's site?
2007 MAZDA3 i Sport 4-Door $179/Month, 27-Month Lease, $2,179 due at Lease Signing. Includes 1st Month's Payment. Excludes taxes, title and fees. (**)
(*) The Amount due at Lease Signing is higher in the following states: Connecticut ($2,616); Massachusetts ($2,681); Rhode Island ($2,725); Virginia ($2,441); and West Virginia ($2,452). (**) Dealer participation required. Not all lessees will qualify for lowest payment through Mazda American Credit. Some payments higher, some lower based on residency and other factors. Lessee responsible for excess wear and mileage over 27,000 at $0.15/mile. Total payments of $4,833. Purchase option at lease end for $10,996. Take new retail delivery from dealer stock by 4/2/07. See participating dealer for qualifications.
According to this, the residual on a mazda3i sport is $10,996. Unless there are hidden options they aren't giving details on, a Mazda3i sport is $14,390. $10,996 is 76.4% of $14,390.(???)

MSRP is $16,170 with automatic and air...

Yeah... most ads give the MSRP of the vehicle the deal refers to... At least, Honda ads..
On the positive side... they didn't quote a deal for a car that no one would want..

I wanted to know what the residual was for a 5-dr touring and a 5-dr sport w/12k miles per year. I see from one of your earlier posts that the money factor for March is 0.00184. What would the money factor increase to if you had tier B or C credit?
#96 of 850 Mazda 3 5 door grand touring lease...

I see the deal for the sport model, does that mean there's no deal for the grand touring model? I'm pretty set on a grand touring.
I posted this question on another the honda lease section also...should I negotiate the car price first, w/o mention of a lease? Then, after settling on the price, go for the lease negotiation? Is it even a negotiation or is it basically whatever they tell me? How can I shop around for the lease deal if I'm already set at one dealership for the pricing for the car? Thanks!

not too good.
Just last weekend we picked up one for my brother-in-law. An S touring sedan with moonroof and automatic. MSRP was around $19,800.
27 months, 69% residual. 595 acquisition, 285 DMV, the fees were high at $600, but they gave him $500 more for his trade than it was worth, so that was a wash.
They gave him $3k for his jetta and he put down $200 cash. His payment is $211 with tax included.
Yes, he put down $750 more than your deal, BUT his lease is 12 months shorter and he has a $20 cheaper payment. So your deal just doesn't seem to make sense. I think it mostly has to do with that residual. I mean, 69% after 27 months is better than 55% after 39. Maybe you should ask them to work up a 27 month deal. That is where mazda's incentives lie right now, after all.

I don't really know much about leasing cars, but I'd really like to find a way to get a 2-year lease for this model with the sunroof & 6-CD changer package for somewhere between 200 and 240 a month. Is that possible? What exactly would I have to do to pull it off? Any information people could share with me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
