Firstly, a shoutout to @nyclife. Despite hitting him up last minute, he was easy to work with and had a better deal but dealer contacted me with the perfect color combo and I had to strike by 2/29 to get it. I probably could have done better but it was exactly what my wife wanted.
Not totally hackr worthy but a reference point on a car that’s hard to lease well (or generally to find decent discounts).
Year, Make, Model, and Trim: 2019 Audi S5 Cabriolet Premium Plus
Monthly Payment: $783.39 + tax
Drive-Off Amount: $1700 + $500 USAA credit applied (this includes $1093 plate cost)
Annual Mileage: 10,000
Residual: 51% ($35,891)
Leasehackr Score: (Can’t exactly replicate in calculator)
At signing I also added Audi Care that bumped the residual by 1%, giving me 5 yr/60k transferrable full maintenance (should I keep or sell). The value is it caps my total maintenance cost at $379 incl. tax.
I also plan to exercise most of my Silvercar credits as soon as I receive the code, saving me another $535 on planned rental.
