#808 of 947 Current Lease Rates for Q5 2.0T Premium Plus
Nov 30, 2012 (8:45 am)
I'm looking to lease a 2013 Q5 2.0T Premium Plus w/ Nav (purchasing in Michigan, but titled in Florida). Does anyone have updated residual and money factor info for November / December? I'm also considering a Lexus RX350 and BMW X3, trying to obtain data to work my best deal. I have another lease vehicle to turn in Dec 9th, so can hold off a bit if there's an indication that Audi will offer something better soon.
#809 of 947 To buy or to lease Q5?
Dec 01, 2012 (8:48 pm)
Should I buy out, CPO, and warranty my 2009 Q5 3.2 Audi (all in) for $25K?
Lease a 2013 Q5 2.0 similarly equipped using the equity from the lease for $460/mo, 42 mo, 12k/year?
Thanks for any and all responses,

AUDI Q5 2.0T- 36 month, 15k Lease
Audi Q5 - MSRP $45,400ish , offered to us at $43,400ish
Monthly payment $525
$5000 cap reduction
$3000 due at signing.
This is far more money than we wanted to put down but I was trying to work with the guy and we ended up leaving because I did not like the deal after reviewing the posts on this board.
For December what can I reasonably expect for a Residual and MF for the Q5?

Thanks for your excellent info.
Is it better to Lease NOW in December 2012 or Wait until January 2013? I'm not sure as I am new to leasing.
I'm looking to lease a 2013 Q5 3.0T Premium Plus. Can you tell me what the current lease money factor and residual value % is? I am interested in a 36 mo. lease with 15k miles a year.

Forgive my ignorance but are you saying 8k out of pocket in order to get to $525 a month?

Dec 03, 2012 (12:00 pm)
We are leasing a 2013 Audi Q5 Premium plus this month.
Can you tell me:
-the money factor
-residual at 10K miles 3 years
Our dealership is saying the rates change in December. I wanted to check and see if that was true as well.

Yes it was about 8K out of pocket, that is why I did not take the deal. I was looking at the numbers and he was not being very flexible so I left. This was based on November lease pricing so hopefully December gets better. Otherwise I am leasing the new Acura RDX for much, much less.

While that is indeed expensive out of pocket for a lease IMO, it sounds genuine or along the lines of the deal I am getting. I am on order (delivery in January) for 2.0 premium plus moonlight blue metallic / gray interior, with navi, advanced key and 19 inch wheels at $584/mo with $4700 out of pocket (including tax pre-paid, 1st mo, bank fee and rest towards cap reduction). I think the msrp for this setup is $46,470 or something like that but clearly sales price is lower, else math doesn't add up. This is also using November 0.00179 and 52% on a 42mo 12k lease. I am hoping that by the time I take delivery (early jan) numbers dip and I can negotiate.
As car_man mentioned earlier the q5 deals (not to mention audi if you ask me) has some unfavorable lease deals. With Acura or Infinti your money goes ways further, but its all matter of wants vs. needs and paying for those needs. I have a 2010 infinti g37x coupe and with a similar msrp but no where near of q5 mo payments. Obviously different year and different numbers but money goes further.
Good Luck to you.

I believe paying so much money up front is not the way to go. When trying to get to a certain lease payment, one must come up with money up front to lower the cap cost. My opinion is that the Q5 lease deals are not that good, but certinly wait for December. You may want to look at other SUVs where you are spending less money and can still enjoy the ride.

Thank you all for the replies. The wife and I haven't decided yet but we are leaning toward leasing the Acura RDX 2013 which is priced lower and has better lease terms.
The Q5 was our favorite however paying an extra $7000 out of pocket for the same monthly payment of $550 did not make sense to us.
We are signing a 3 year lease so when those terms our up I told my wife she can get whatever car she wants, probably a Q7 or Infiniti JX35 as we will have two kids at that point.
Thank you all again for your help and time, if you hear of any changes to lease terms for December please let me know.
