I was able to visit a different dealer this evening and locked in on the deal I will be taking.
Aero 9-3 with Auto and Cold Weather Package:
27 month 12,000/miles year lease for $369 a month (including tax, 6% in Michigan). Total due at signing is first month payment, $124.50 in taxes (on $2,000 rebate), title $23 and doc fee of $75. So $591.50 due.
27 month 15,000/miles year lease for $381 a month (including tax, 6% in Michigan). Total due at signing is first month payment, $124.50 in taxes (on $2,000 rebate), title $23 and doc fee of $75. So $603.50 due.
Because I had another GM lease, I will not have to pay a security deposit.
The residuals were .67 on the 12k lease and .66 on the 15K lease with a 3.94 rate and $2000 back on Aero, plus the GMS (Employee pricing) discount. I think this is a great price for an almost $35K sedan.
Is there anything else that I am missing or should try to negotiate? I will be picking this vehicle up on Monday.

Those look like great deals...
If you have any doubts at all about how much mileage you need, grab the 15K allowance.. For $12/mo. it is cheap insurance against being over mileage..

This looks like a great deal. I am in IL and difference is I have to pay 8% taxes on the selling price. which is probabely $32690, Which comes to about 2800 which addes about $70 to the monthly payments Plus I have the premium package which adds $21 per month. Over all I think I am getting a similar deal with the exception of the IL 8% taxes. That tax is what is killing me.
Any one defers that..

Hi redrumkev or any one who can answer the question. Can some one living in IL lease a car in Michigan and drive it back to IL, Obviously the deals are sweeter in Michigan than Chicago ? Any issues other than the tax...

You only pay sales tax on your use.
So if your payment is $400 plus tax, you will pay $400 + 8% of that, which is $32 for a total payment of $432.
In Michigan, with 6% sales tax you would take the same $400 base payment and add the tax, which would be $24 for a total payment of $424, only saving you $8 dollars or 2% a month.
You do not pay tax on the entire purchase price of the vehcile, only what you use. So if you have a purchase price of $30,000 and lease it with a .67 res, then you are "using" approximately 33% of the car, or about $10,000. So with your tax rate of 8% you will pay about $800 over the term of the lease, where as I would only pay 6% or $600.
If you buy the car out of state, ie come to Michigan, you will not pay tax here, instead you will have to pay the taxes in your own state, at YOUR STATES RATE of 8%.
For my motorcycle, I went to Ohio to purchase it, I did not pay tax there on, but when I came back to Michigan to register it, I had to pay the sales tax here. The only way to get around the tax would be to have an address in a state with lower tax and have your bills sent there. But you ever get an accident or have any problems, they might find out and cuase you some problems. So the $8 a month more on a $400 month payment are not worth the effort or chance that something could go wrong with paying the "out of state tax game". Not to mention the gas/time you will burn to drive to Michigan to get the car!

Thanks redrunkev, I went in this week to pick up the saab 93.
Here is the deal
MSRP = $32500 (Auto, Premium, Sunroof, Cold weather packages)
Selling price = $27100 ( Including the GM Employee discount and Dealer cash back of 2500)
Residual = 59%
12k per year
Including tax $425 per month
In Illinois the law is to pay taxes on the Selling price for all leases. I think this is the law for IL and TX.
Can any one confirm that I got the a decent deal ?

First time in my life trying to lease a car.
Dealer quoted me a price for a demo car as follows.
Saab 9-3 2.0T
Price = $24300
12000 miles/Yr and 27 months term.
Asking for $390 per month with $1800 (TTL + fees) as a down payment.
It sounds too much to me especially it has 7500 miles on it.
He used 5.34% GM rate and about 66% residual.
They seem desparate is getting rid of thie car.
What should be my good offer ( I want to put $0 down but he said in order to preserve interest rate I need to put down $800 atleast, I want 15000 miles/yr).
Any help here will be appreciated greatly.
#222 of 559 Help me get a saab 9-3 aero lease!
Aug 23, 2006 (11:35 am)
I'm also trying to lease a saab 9-3 aero. I have gotten quotes from $439 to $600. I saw a car advertised for $29,900 new. The dealer said for a lease they had to go off the msrp which is not true that I know of. The way I figure it is the car is $29900, the residual is $19,000 for a 36 month, wouldn't I be paying $10,000 over a three year period plus tax and interest? How are the dealers getting to these outrageous amounts with no money down? what am I doing wrong? Is the $3000 cash back good on a lease veichle? I live in Illinois so if someone got a lease deal with no money down in the $300's-$400's a month atfer now the employee pricing is over can you please tell me which dealship you bought it at?
