#494 of 765 New Lease
Jul 17, 2011 (9:37 am)
Im looking into leasing a new 2012 Audi A5. Went to the dealership and got some pricing and wanted to see how good the price they gave me was and how much room I have to negotiate.
Car Specs -
2.0 Premium Plus
Phantom Black Paint
Audi MMI Navigation Plus
B&O Sound System
They offered me a 39 month lease, 10,000 miles a year, for: $600 a month and $4000 due at signing which they said covers first month payment, taxes, titles, tags, fees, etc...
The price of $600 a month is what the dealer told me as the first price of the car after running the #'s and he said that's after him taking $2000 off the price of the car. Is this truly the lowest they can go because A5's are in high demand or do I stand a chance to knock some more money off the monthly payment? Also, does $4000 due at signing sound normal? I've had 1 lease before and I can't be certain but I think out the door after 1st month, taxes, titles, tags, fees that I paid them like $1800 and that was for my G35 sedan which had monthly payment of $499. Am I taking a beating with what Im paying out the door as well?
Thanks for your help

I just got my 2011 A5 lease yesterday.
I really think I got the best price possible.
I got this in Southern California
(I went to four places and played them off against each other as all of you should do)
The problem with this car is that although it is 2011 and they are clearing them out for the 2012 it is a hot car and they are only willing to go so far.
The details are as follows.
I was turning in an 2008 A4 lease that was already paid off and in excellent condition and I only had 29,000 miles when I could have driven 36,000 etc.
I was able to get some equity out of the car on that end ($600)
Additionally I got the premium package with the audi care included.
No navigation but seriously in this day and age?
It had blue tooth, home link, IPOD connection and LoJack. (You have to activate the LoJack for a fee)
I got it for $1665 down (including first months and registration), 10K miles per year, and 42 months, and $550 including tax a month.
The overall price of the car was lowered by my audi loyalty discount ($750 and again the equity in the car)
At one point I really did think that I could get the car for $1665 and $500 month. No such luck at any of the dealerships.
Ultimately I got a dealer to agree to $534 and $1665 but unfortunately my credit wasn't good enough to get that price. (Just under 700)
Never the less I got a beautiful car that turns heads and is awesome to drive.
By the way, the first time I went into the dealership they pitched me $3000 down and $566 a month.
I hope that helps!

#497 of 765 2012 audi a5 - premium plus +sports pkg
Jul 31, 2011 (4:42 pm)
Very new to the leasing world. I went to a couple local dealers with a friend who has leased cars for years and ended up calling a dealer out of state, which someone has used for many years. The local dealers were quoting me lease rates about $35-50 higher per month than the out of state guy. Wanted to ask if people thought this was a good deal. 2012 audi a5 with sports package. no nav, no Bang & Olufsen sound system, 18 inch all-season tires (included with sports package), 15,000K miles per year, 39 months -- $580/month with no money down. There is $3000 for taxes, fees, registration, first month payement, etc. He told me the reason why the initial walk off the lot fees seem higher, is because I'm paying the taxes upfront (I live in Ohio if that makes a difference). Does this sound like a good deal? I am getting ready to sign this week.
Thanks for any help you guys can give me.

Hi Car Man.
Please give me the money factor and residual for a 2012 A5 premium plus cabriolet for delivery in August.
I would want the lowest annual mileage they would write it for (10,000?) and would like to see figures for 36 and for 48 months. Thanks!

Aug 05, 2011 (12:16 pm)
I'm considering a 2012 A5 Coupe Prestige, through work I can get it at invoice, which is $45,172. I'd be doing a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles a year.
Could you please let me know what kind of lease payment I'd be looking at, as well as the MF and residual?
#501 of 765 August residual and MF
Aug 06, 2011 (1:01 pm)
went to Audi in NY today got the residual as 59% and 0.00161 for MF.
I quote a 2012 A5 Prem Plus with Navi and Sport package $42648 he gave me the price of $3500 down and $569 per month.
but when i got home and make some calculation my self it turn out to be $529 per month with 0 down tax and fees not include.

I'm glad that you've found my posts helpful, bhayward. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 Audi A5 that has an MSRP of $47,625 and a selling price of $46,400 through Audi Financial Services' right now for 36 months with 10,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $629.
With a down payment of $9,000 (the 10k that you mentioned minus the fees), this payment would drop to around $364.
Having said that, you definitely don't want to make that large a down payment when leasing. Consumers who make large down payments like that on leases risk losing part or all of the money that they put down if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. It's much safer to go with a zero down lease.
