I;d be happy to help you out, qle. Audi Financial Services' August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A5 2.0 Coupe with Premium and 15,000 miles per year are .00196 and 56%, respectively.
Not surprisingly, other than $750 loyalty cash for returning lessees, Audi is not currently providing any cash incentives on this car.

#105 of 720 A5 2.0 lease question for Car_man
Aug 19, 2009 (11:39 am)
The lease on my '06 Infiniti FX that we did so well on is about to run out, and I'm looking at a '10 A5 2.0T as a possible replacement. I used the TMV report to come up with an MSRP of $42,625 (2.0T, 6MT, WPS Premium Plus, PSP 19" Sport, 9VK B&O). Do you have residual and MF info for 36 months and 12k per year? My bet is that the mileage change from 15k to 12k will be a 1-2% bump in the residual with no change in the money factor. Thanks!

Your money factor will stay the same. True, your residual will improve (+1 or 2%) if you do 12k, but getting Premium Plus will knock you down (-3%). But hey, who wants an A5 with regular halogen lights? I ended up with a premium plus at 15k and got a residual of 53% (54% if you count getting AudiCare).

Thanks for the info on the Premium Plus residual. I'm finding it harder to justify the payment differential between the A5 and an equivalent 328i xDrive Coupe. Other than I want (WANT!) the A5. Your mention of Audi Care just reminded me that BMW includes the maintenance, so the price comparison is actually getting worse.

FWIW, I was looking at same BMW as alternative to A5, and included G37x in the mix. Exact (or as near possible) same configuration on BMW was a couple $k more expensive MSRP and G was couple less. Discounts on 09 A5s were available but 3.2s were more expensive to start. '10 2.0T brought price down and dealers are getting enough to warrant discounts off MSRP - but not to same extent as bimmer or G. I was looking to purchase outright not lease so can't comment on how that compares for comparable cars. G lost on build quality and style; BMW lost on style and waaay toooo common and both had inferior AWD systems. I'm generally a 'buy & hold' guy with cars so my "I want (WANT)" impulse won out - am loving my 5!

I'm going to second packrfan on this one. I was looking at the same three (a5, 335i, g37), plus the c-class. Everybody and their mom drive a 3-series. Granted, the engine is better, but that's it. Style, build quality, interior, awd . . all better on the audi. In my case, it was worth it to forgo the 2500 (plus better MF) bmw was offering to get rid of the 09s. There's a reason audi released the 2010s early and have only discounted very little. Everybody wants one and is willing to pay for it.
Why not pay a little more and get gawking onlookers on the way home?

Whaddya know. I also drove the G37. Loved the power, did not like my head up against the headliner the entire time, even with the seat as far down as possible. That's a dealbreaker.
I believe the technical term for you two is "enablers." Based on the numbers, it's going to be about $130 more a month for the A5 over the 328. Ouch. And that doesn't include service. Double ouch.

I've been called many things but "enabler" is new An intervention is required: quick, go to local Audi dealer, test drive a '10 A5 with NewGen nav and B&O, take two aspirin (ok, oxycontin ) for the 'ouch' and sign the paperwork! You won't regret it!
Seriously, I get it - $130 is a big % increase - just wish Audi didn't know they had such a good thing

#113 of 720 September lease rates

Can you hook me up with September residual and money factor for a 2010 A5 2.0T FSI Quattro, 6MT, Premium Plus, B&O, Sport Package and AudiCare. MSRP is $43,100 (including destination). I'm looking at both 36/12 and 42/12 options. Any help on the numbers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
