#233 of 942 Is this a good deal?
Dec 04, 2009 (6:11 am)
I have a quote for a 2010 Q5 premium plus lease for $539 + taxes. The details are:
36 months & 10k miles
Security Deposit $0 (waived during the Season of Audi Event)
1st Month Payment $569
Acquisition Fee $625
Down Payment $2,499
Due at Signing $4,900 (Includes taxes, title and dealer fees)
I get 6% off the MSRP ($42,500) through the Audi Supplier Program. Do you think this is this a good deal?

6% off is about the best you're going to do based on all of my research.

Audilover, thanks for your reply. I am trying to plug in then lease figures to make sure that the quote is correct but I am not getting the same results. What should I use for the residual and money factor?

Frankly, I don't know...we just came up with figures and that was the deal.

It's better to put zero down on a lease. If you wreck the car, you will lose the $2500 down you put and your insurance won't cover it. There are other reasons, but that's the biggest.

Anyone know the lease money factor and residual values for the Audi Q5 Premium? Need 10,000, 12,000 and 15,000 mile values.

#241 of 942 2010 Prem Plus
Dec 12, 2009 (8:23 pm)
I just leased a Q5 from Marc Levine Bell Audi in NJ. Had a real nice experience. I highly recommend working with him no matter where you live. I leased from Marc 250 miles away because my local DC area dealers were almost completely unresponsive.
When I picked up the car, there were no surprises and it was out of there in an hour. They even picked me up at the Amtrak station.
I put $1500 down. My payment is $723/mo. 42mos 12k / yr. I might have been able to squeeze them down to $713 but relative to the other posts, $723 seemed reasonable.
The down payment didn't even cover VA taxes.
I got a White/Cinnamon 2010 Prem Plus / Nav / 19's / B&O sound / Audi Care / VA Taxes & Fees
Had to special order to get the color combination.
This car replaces a much loved '04 Cayenne S. The Q5 is a pretty comparable car before you consider the $20k price difference.
I read this forum for months before I pulled the trigger. Thank you all for your responses and insight.
#242 of 942 Regarding Q5 Prestige Lease
Dec 12, 2009 (9:49 pm)
What do you know about the current money factor and residuals on 2010 Q5 Prestige with 15K miles (price $53,500) ?
I live in California and the rates they are quoting seem way off - to get to their lease rate the money factor would need to be close to .00370 with a residual of 38% (they said it was 41% but the math didn't work out). I can't see any lmf anywhere published above .00105.
Thanks for the help.
