I got my quote from the dealer!
MSRP --> 36,765
PREF --> 35,277
EVA --> (1,000)
Lease Conquest --> (1500)
With first months payment + $175
36 months 10,000MI / year = $357.81 w/ tax
39 months 10,000MI / year = $354.34 w/ tax
What do you all think? I am a GM employee, and am currently leasing a Dodge Charger (for the lease conquest). The dealer said I have to pay 7% tax on the EVA and Lease Conquest discounts they are giving ($175) at signing. I have to order the car, so I am waiting until the first of May. I hope the Lease Conquest offer is still available or I could get the $1,000 by calling in.
This is a 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD Standard
w/ Manual Transmission ($1,180)
w/ Polished Aluminum Wheels $800
w/ Cadillac User Experience (CUE) and Surround Sound $1,350

If you're looking for the difference, the crude way of doing it would be to take the % of the difference that you would actually be paying for. Let's say the residual on the car is 58%, then you would be responsible for 42% of that 4815, and then divide that number by the 39 months to see what the difference would generally be. As I stated, that's the crude way of doing it. I recently just signed for my car, which had an MSRP of 47,080, 39/12k year, for 530 a month. This is for a Premium 2.0T RWD 6-Speed with Crystal Red Tintcoat, Sunroof, Cold Weather, and All-Weather Cargo Mat. That's with first payment and plates down.

#141 of 241 2.0 Base Maybe Plus CUE
Apr 24, 2013 (11:15 pm)
Does anyone have a money factor for April for a 2.0 Base ATS, possibly with CUE? I have the following offer on a white tricoat 2.0 Standard: $2,000 Drive-Off, Selling price $36,000 minus a $1000 private offer and $800 dealer cash, $312.53/monhth. For some reason, I can't get an Ally money factor out of the dealer, and there's also some vague references to government fees and tax, but I've been told that's included in the $2,000 which has not been broken down to my satisfaction. I might include $1,000 of the $2,000 in the lease, I guess another $30/month. I don't really want the fancy paint job, but the only other Standard 2.0's in this part of Northern California are that weird blue, silver, or black which I don't like. I would be interested in CUE for a little more than the price of the paint upgrade, but I'm not convinced it's worth the money.

I think you can do better... here is what I got at the end of March. Not sure what the difference in residuals is between March and April though.
Black on caramel
2.0T AWD base with following options:
CUE with surround sound
All weather mats
and of course the ipad
$307.00 with tax for 36/12 with $842 due at signing through Ally.

Yes, I remember reading your account. That's a really good deal. I believe you said you got the GM employee discount which I don't have. What was your negotiated selling price and money factor? Apparently the residual is still pretty good, about 64%, not sure if that's the same as in March. I think part of the problem here is the low supply of 2.0T base cars, especially with the options you describe.

I was actually replying to eddieg7408's deal... he has GMS.
Your deal sounds good wonderwarthog assuming that
1. The car has the CUE option
2. $2000 due at signing includes everything
They should outline exactly how they got to the $2000 due at signing.
I don't remember my final MSRP... will have to look at the papers. I do remember my residual being the same as yours.... 64%. Sounds like the rebates are still the same as they were in March ($800 from the factory).
However, I would strongly recommend reducing your singing payment to as little as possible. Roll as much of it into the lease as possible, even if it means a higher monthly payment. Always good to do that for a number of reasons like, for example, if the car gets totaled, your turn it in early, etc.. In those cases you stand to lose all of the "down payment" vs the portion of it that you already paid for.
Regarding you wondering if CUE is worth it I think it totally is. I was gonna skip out on it after reading the horrendous reviews on the system and to keep my payments low. However, I am now EXTREMELY glad I got it. I've had no issues at all with mine and find it to be a pretty good interface / system overall. From what I've read in the Cadillac forums mine has the major update Cadillac rolled out in February which fixes most of the issues reviewers had. Plus it comes with a better Bose system (10 speakers vs 7 speakers) which I thought was better sounding than the base system (but it's still nothing amazing...). And hey it comes with a free iPad which I'm about to dump on ebay (don't need it).
#145 of 241 ATS 3.6L Premium AWD May Lease Residual/MF
May 02, 2013 (10:31 pm)
Could please let me know what the residual and MF for May is on a ATS 3.6L AWD Premium? Terms are 36 Months 12K miles. Also, could you provide the May Lease incentives if you have them? I'm beginning my research on an lease when I return from deployment at the end of the month. Thank You...

Snaab, Your offer is really encouraging! Thanks for replying. Looks like I will be unable to order a 2013. (dealership said the factories are building out and only 2014s can be ordered) But I did find one at another dealer configured with:
Heated driver and front passenger seats
6-speed manual transmission
17 X 8 polished aluminum wheels
Premium all-weather floor mats (dealer-installed)
CUE (Cadillac User Experience) and Surround Sound
for a total MSRP of $38,405.00
Surely if I get anything similar to your offer, I can come out at 325$ / month or less for that with a little less down (first months + ~110 fee)
You must have got quite a discount off MSRP. I was told a manual transmission did not change the residual but maybe $5 a month extra. If you get around to it, look up the price you paid out of the door, post back. That could be helpful in my negotiations!

Hi zja1. Ally's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a base 2013 Cadillac ATS with 15,000 miles per year are 1.25% and 60%.
General Motors is currently providing an $800 cash incentive on leases of this car through Ally.
