I am in the Bay Area so yep in CA. Tax rate here is 9.5% so the total came out to be $3,000 Drive Off and $481.50/mo including tax.
There aren’t many Base Coupes in the Bay Area (I got this one which was the only one at this dealer). I did call around SoCal and the most aggressive offers came from Rusnak Pasadena and Hornburg LA. Both still have lots of cars and were in the $450 - $500 before tax range (with $3,000 DO). You might be able to push them lower to the deal I got; I didn’t try much harder since the one I found was local and a good deal ( or so I thought ).
Just as a note: if you’re looking at 2016 models… I’ve heard that the banks are giving dealers a $10k incentive on each car to move them. Don’t know how the residuals/MFs look on it though. May not lease great.
I didn’t even look at the convertibles because I didn’t want one ( even though I’m in CA, crazy huh!?)
Thanks - Base Coupe is what we are going for. There is some sort of “Premium” too (I do not know these cars, this is for my brother) but I think that makes the MSRP go from $63k to $69k. Plus he is leaving for NY in 2 weeks so I don’t know if we can get this done … might have to be a 2017 thing
Same performance specs between the two. The premium includes the panoramic window, keyless entry, and full power seats/memory while the base only has 6 way power seats and keyless start (you have to take the key out of your pocket to unlock the car). The other difference is that the premium car can have packages (like blind spot monitor etc) while the base can only have heated seats/steering wheel as an option. Base is also more limited in color selections.
Summary: Premium is more “luxury” items with more available options but the same car. I would see if the base fits your brother’s needs in terms of “stuff”. By the way, premium residuals drop like a rock. In Nov, that 69% residual was 61% on the premium.
