Maverick: There are only partial truths to your post. The dealer gets zero kick-back and the salesperson ends up with what is commonly known as a mini commission. The dealer only gets back money from Infiniti IF the surveys are above the national average. Most customers who shop for a luxury vehicle and expect to pay invoice end up finding some fault with the sales process and give a "bad"survey. Would you go to a Steakhouse and ask for a discount? Would you go to a barbershop and ask to pay 18 bucks for a posted 20 dollar haircut? Why is it that people think that car dealers and salespeople should starve? Pretty soon what will happen is that all dealers will be subscribed to fixed pricing. No DISCOUNTS from the posted price. Its coming so get used to it. Personally Im tired of going through a 3-4 hour process and recertification and sales meeting and training in order to end up with a small commission. You dont work for slave wages. Why should I?

Are there any tricks for getting VPP if you do not work for any associated company?

Here's the information that you're looking for yideng. Infiniti Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 JX AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00104 and 58% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
The residual value for a lease of this car with 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

#229 of 397 Good Deal in NJ?
Mar 25, 2013 (4:50 pm)
Thank you guys for helping me with Residual/MF.
I've been quoted the following on 15K lease JX35 with Premium Pkg only.
$560 incl tax
$1560 due at signing.
According to the math (using cpyle77 and carman's help) it seems like it's 1500 above invoice.
Good deal??? Should I take it??
Does anyone know from experience, if I will get lower payments if I choose to go with Pathfinder Platinum???
Thank you guys

I backed into a $560 payment, but don't see $1,500 left for the dealer, unless you are using the "VPP" business associates program. Even then, it's still a very fair deal with a much smaller margin. I worked up a 39 month lease (cheaper than 36 by about $25 per month) on:
2013 JX35 AWD, with Premium, roof rails, cross bars and IKPs.
$45,869 Sale price (invoice $46,369)
15k per year, 39 months, payment-$561.50.
58% residual, ($29,043) .00121 MF. Base payment $469.08.
This includes your 7% NJ tax ($1,177) paid upfront.
The $700 acq fee capped
1st payment paid upfront ($561.50)
NJ title, reg and doc fee also capped ($637 est)
This would come to a total of $1,738 due at signing.
Unless you are currently working for a company that has a corporate program with Infiniti (you can check www.insidenissan.com to find out) I would dare say you are getting the best deal possible. If you need any help securing that deal, just let me know. I have "friends" in your area that can make that deal happen whenever you like...
Good luck with your purchase!

#232 of 397 Out of state lease
Mar 27, 2013 (1:05 pm)
Help needed from someone with expertise. I live in NC. Here in NC when I lease a car sales tax is not charged on the purchase price. Instead it is charged on the monthly payment. In addition there is a property tax due to the county, and this has been charged to the lease company who then bill me after they pay it. The tax here (which is not technically sales tax it's "highway use tax" but has the same impact) is 3%.
I have found a dealer in Maryland willing to sell me a JX35 for a price that works for me. We want to lease. When the dealer runs their lease it runs it under Maryland rules where sales tax (6%) is added to the purchase price, and they also add in a very conservative (i.e. high) estimate of the property tax and this is baked into the upfront payment. This is bad for many, many reasons for us. It bumps up the payment to a level that outweighs the cap cost benefit of the price offered.
Is there any way for a dealer in Maryland to do a lease for me under NC tax structure, or am I stuffed?

Which state was this in? Making some assumption about that and resulting tax rate, I am estimating you paid around $49k for the car which looks a good deal with Edmunds showing a TMV of $48,758.
Did you qualify for VPP?
I am really wondering if the low TMV's are due to people getting $1750 off due to VPP? I am struggling to get dealers to take invoice (which is where the TMV's are at). It's month end and I have offered invoice to a number of dealers on a number of cars and not getting a single bite.

My math using 5% taxes tells me selling price was just below $47.8K ie approx $1K below invoice and $5.4K off msrp.
Am wondering if Infiniti has some crazy volume incentives in place on JX for dealers prior to them converting into Qs which is why some of these guys are willing to go well below invoice.
Just wonder why people dont use MSDs often. I ended up saving approx $75/month using MSDs on my lease. If you have extra $5K sitting in the bank, MSD gets you far better return than almost any investment out there.
