I spent 6 months researching prices, dealing with multiple dealerships, and also multiple brokers here on leasehackr for a new Audi Q5. There are a lot of mid size SUV’s that give great leasing deals (like the Lexus RX350) but the Audi Q5 will not get anywhere close to the golden 1% rule. Even accounting for this and having a realistic expectation didn’t prepare me for the slogfest of absolutely horrible quotes. It was a new model design that was in pretty high demand, and no one really had the motivation to give me a good price.
Anyway, as a result of looking for so long, I really knew my numbers. When Ivan sent me his offer, I took it right away, no haggling. It was just that good. A broker I was speaking with at the time thought Ivan was BS’ing me just to get me in the door because he got nowhere close after combing all over SoCal from LA all the way to San Diego.
I never thought I could walk into a dealership and have them just give me the papers to sign, zero upsell, zero haggling. No having to sit with random people trying to get me into protection or warranty plans. Also no funny business with the numbers - everything was laid out exactly as he has promised over the phone - no BS fee or extra charges.
Ivan has absolutely earned the right to be the first place I shop in the future. He’s a class act. In an industry full of sleezeballs he’s a breath of fresh air. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
