#620 of 719 AudiCare - Increase Residual if don't roll cost into monthly payment
Aug 29, 2012 (2:29 pm)
I am contemplating whether I should get AudiCare for the 2013 A5 Premium Plus Quattro I am about to lease. Could someone help me with a couple of questions I have regarding AudiCare:
1) Does AudiCare increase the residual value of your car by 1%? I've been seeing this in some older posts and want to see if this is still the case.
2) If I pay for AudiCare and pay for the cost ($800) instead of rolling it into the monthly payment, will I still get a 1% increase in residual value thus lowering my monthly payment?
Clearly if I am able to pay for the AudiCare as part of my upfront cost and still get the 1% increase residual, it comes out to the best deal because I won't have to pay interest on the AudiCare and get the decrease in monthly payments due to lower depreciation costs.

Hey folks- I am. Looking into an a5 cabriolet for my wife. We like to do 24 month 1 pay leases w/ 12k miles. We are looking into a premium plus, quattro model with navi.
Anyone have any ideas on a 1 pay in the ny, tri state area. I know the one pay should be less, but, generally what's he money factor and residual on this ride?

Thanks for the additional information latin0devildog. OK, according to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2013 Audi A5 Coupe Premium Plus with Nav that has an MSRP of $45,295 and a selling price of 42,939 ($750 over invoice) 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 $562, assuming that you qualify for its top credit tier.

#624 of 719 2013 A5 premium, paid price
Sep 04, 2012 (5:26 pm)
Bought 2013 A5 2.0TFSI premium, convenience pkg, heated seats, lighting package, metallic paint (monsoon). Down payment $4000, monthly $490 with tax included. 12K/mo. Just wish it had more power so I chipped it. If you think you'll ever want more power, save a year and get an S5, if you need a car until then just buy a used accord for 10K and sell it when u buy the S5.
#625 of 719 2013 Audi A5 Coupe Premium Plus Lease - Sept Rates & Lease Evaluation?
Sep 05, 2012 (3:27 pm)
After seeing some of the posts, I'm worried about the deal I recently received. Although nothing is set in stone, I reserved an A5 that is scheduled to ship in a few weeks. Here's the deal:
2013 Coupe Premium Plus Brill. Black w/ Nav Pkg, Sport Pkg, Advanced Key, Bang & Olufsen,19" Summer Tires, Textile Mats, Exhaust Tips, First Aid Kit
Sell Price: $47,840
Term: 36 months
Money Factor: 0.00172
Total Monthly Payment (incl. 8.375% sales tax): $575
Cap Cost Reduction: $5,200
Gov't Fees: $450
Tax on Cap Costs: $435
Bank Fee: $695
Doc Fee: $80
Other Fees: $65
Security Deposit: $0
Total at Signing: $7,500
I reserved the car with $1,500 down, so I will be bringing in $6,000 at signing. This still doesn't include AudiCare.
Question: Is the money factor way too high? I was also told that the money factor is set by the bank and can't be negotiated. My credit is in the low 700's. I know the '13 A5's are hard to come by, especially in Cali, but I just wanted to see if I got a fair deal? Also, if I haven't signed a lease agreement, does this mean I can recoup the deposit if I can somehow find a better deal? I went to the dealership in late August, so this is probably based on August rates. I know it's only September 5th, but I can use the August rates as a proxy.

I'll let car man respond about the money factor and all that but at first glance, your drive off is extremely high...i would question that right off the bat.
take a look at my post #544...and also 616, 617, and 619 for what ended up being a good deal for someone who posted on this forum recently...and then go back to your dealer and negotiate. although the MSRP is a little different from my deal and the person in post 616, i think you can do better and i would try if i were you - it never hurts...

Thanks byrdgirlclone. I noticed that you and md9599 both posted deals you received for a 2012 model. Although it seems like you got a great deal for a 2012 model given that you got your deal in November 2011. md9599 also leased a 2012 model but got it towards the tail end of the model year, which I think is the only reason why he/she was able to get an A5 below invoice, correct?
Also, based on my calculations, it appears that you both didn't have to put a security deposit or first month's payment upon signing? Otherwise, I'm just not understanding how you were able to get away with paying such a low amount at signing while getting your monthly payments down to around $600/month inclusive of Cali taxes. The Acquisition Fee is $695 and License/Registration/Gov't Fees are roughly around $400+, which I believe are non-negotiable?
I calculated that I am paying $13.49 for every $100 financed through Audi Financial Services. Thus a $5,000 cap cost reduction equates to roughly -$67/month.
Unfortunately, when I went in during the Summer of Audi event, they were not waving the first month's payment for an A5, just for the A4's. Therefore, I have to include my first month's payment at signing.
Not trying to discredit you in any way. In fact, I think you got a great deal. I just want to make sure I'm using the correct figures when doing my calculations.
My main concern is the money factor. The 2013's just came out, but a 0.00172 money factor seems awfully high compared the other people who have posted. And if anyone has been able to get a 2013 at <=$1,000 above invoice, please let me know. Thank you

nwsportsreport, are you in the bay area? If so, which dealer is it?
If you have good credit score, your money factor is too high and residual value is too low. You should try another dealer.
