(pa) Where? ALPHA ROMEO stelvio


Where are the alpha Romeo lease hacks, it’s always BMW Volvo. Dealerships never wanna return calls these days.

Be sure to specify your location when asking forinput on a deal! Tagging by state (e.g. CA, NJ, PA, NY) is mandatory.

Here’s one:

And another:

May help to spell Alfa correctly in your search. Although reading through those posts it looks like availability is very scarce.

Good luck!

If I was a dealer and received an email inquiry about a “alpha ROMEO”…I’d send it to the circular and move on. If you’re too lazy to do the work behind the deal, pay a broker.

Zero emails, only called. I guess spelling Alfa wrong in an email to a dealer really would make them disregard my initiation. However my call was “hi, I’m interested in lease numbers on a stelvio” response “what’s your name and number I’ll call you back” I didn’t know that was common practice I apologize

Was doing something illegal and using text to speech, figured the search would be more versatile anyway. I’ll check these out thanks man!

Set a target number. Get the residual and MF off of Edmunds, search the marketplace for similar deals, and go from there. Don’t call the dealer, email with your offer, no money down, X purchase price, etc and that you can come in today to sign the paperwork’. If they want an easy deal, done. If they want to come back then you evaluate if it’s worth your time and effort and go from there.

Talking to dealers is for finding someone to do your deal, not for finding out what something should look for. You’re highly unlikely to ever come across a good lease deal by asking dealers how much they want you to pay.

We always recommend the following method before you ever contact a dealership. If you do all of the work up front, you’ll have a stress free dealer experience and set yourself for success.

  1. Read Leasing 101 (Blog | LEASEHACKR) to understand how to calculate a lease payment and the variables. Monthly payment is an output, not an input!!
  2. Pick a specific vehicle that you want to target
  3. Gather the current MF, RV and incentives from Edmunds forums for your zip code
  4. Research the LH marketplace and other deals that have been made recently on your vehicle - what was their pre-incentive discount? How did their lease terms differ?
  5. Plug your numbers into the LH calculator (CALCULATOR | LEASEHACKR), and use a pre-incentive discount similar to what you have seen
  6. Create a target deal, this is what you’re trying to negotiate to. You can try different terms, selling price discount, etc. and see how your monthly payment is affected. It is also possible that different trims of your vehicle may have different MF and RV (i.e. this is very common with GM), so make sure that you look into that. Come up with a set of inputs that give you the output that you want - your desired monthly payment.

With a target price determined, you now have a deal to pursue and compare dealer offers against. More importantly, you have a solid foundation to work from.

Makes sense, going by someone else’s success was something I looked forward to. The two posted here actually doesn’t do that, one isn’t even for the SUV. It’s ok, like I said, I type BM AND BOOM I have every number I need and success stories literally from a week ago for a BMW lol. Thanks anyway, you have been super supportive and informative with great interaction skills for sure, appreciate it.

Hey man thanks for the reply! I have all that but number 4. Number 4 was something I was looking for.

Your best bet is looking at marketplace listings if there aren’t many shared deals to pull from.

At any given time there are only a few cars that have the quadfecta of RV, MF, incentives and discount to make leasing attractive
