Does your VPP claim number start with a "D"? If so, then it falls under "business associate" and they are supposed to sell it for invoice. The dealership is then paid a nice $1,500 kickback from Infiniti for doing the deal. This is why they need your business card or badge as proof. If it starts with an "A", then it falls under the direct factory or corporate workers program and your VPP price is $1,250 under invoice (plus any incentives) and the dealership receives $1,750 instead of $1,500. I guess they only get to make $500 on employees lol Most good dealers these days will openly disclose this, since it's listed on the of the actual VPP claim form that you will need to sign when you are doing all the final paperwork. One other thing I would suggest looking into if you are leasing, is a program called "MSD's" or "multiple security deposits" as an option. It can save you a few thousand bucks in interest, just for letting IFS hang on to some of your money during the lease. If anything happens (like the JX get's totaled) you get all that money back vs putting money down on a lease, which would all be lost. Hope that helps and good luck!

cpyle77 had some good advice. Down payments on a lease are bad for a few reasons:
- They allow the dealer to meet your criteria without budging (i.e. I want this car for this payment) - they make you put more money down
- If your vehicle is totaled in an accident you lose your whole down payment
- You don't get the money back and you have to put it down over and over again every time you lease a new vehicle.
- It makes it harder to compare lease deals from multiple dealers or multiple vehicle options. If you structure every deal as no money down (just first month's payment and registration fees) you have an easier time comparing apples to apples
Instead, look at the multiple security deposit program. You save a lot on your monthly payment but you get the money back at the end of your lease and can use it again for MSDs on your next lease.
I'm not sure what the buy rate for the money factor is. If it's not posted on this thread, one way to find out is to get quotes over the internet from multiple dealers (something you should be doing already)

thank you for your response and detailed information on VPP program. I am not trying to be greedy but do i still have more negotiation room, say sell price below invoice? If i don't then I guess i am ok with the selling price but I would like to score some accessories if i can.

What is the holdback on Infiniti's these days? I have seen 1.5% off Base MSRP on edmunds and I have also seen a 2% of actual MSRP elsewhere. Also when negotiating the price of this car, what should be the starting point i.e. Invoice minus incentives minus holdback plus couple hundred dealer profit?
I am seeing several people on this forum getting offers below invoice even though there is no incentives out there right now on leasing. Is that because dealers are splitting a portion of the holdback or is there something else out there that I am missing?
Also the current $1000 incentive is just on purchase and not on lease right?

Infiniti has a prepaid maintenance program. It can be "free" if the dealer claims that some of the discount on the vehicle covers the cost.

Good deal or they can do better? What if I added the driver assist package how much should my monthly payment be? I just want to put the minimum down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!!
