Well since the leasing option showed up in most posts I decided to call a dealer friend of mine and ask him what the residual value is going to be.. I got scared
Ready.
well for a 2 year or 24 months is going to be 60%
For a 3 year 36 month is 55%
For a 4 year 48 month is 48%
I called my Credit union and they told me the original quotes they gave me were based on a Higher estimated Residual values. they will honor it yet the price of lease was higher.

With 2% cap reduction and paying MSRP the cost of the lease with No money down and $1000 for taxes and other DMV Fees it was the following

Leather/Ecsaine Trim Interior, Homelink System, 8-Way Power Adjustable Driver & Passenger Seats
-- Power Tilt/Slide Moonroof with Sunshade
-- Limited Slip Differential
-- Heated Front Seats

36 months = $690
48 months = $615

Man does that sux

I wish ALG makes the residual value higher.

My dealer told me that they have 6 banks who have so far set residual values varying from 55% to 64% (the latter number is from Lexus finance). My lease cost is worked on the highest residual (although with a hefty interest rate of 9%). There may be more and better residuals/rates in the next few weeks, but I need a car now.

Ya I am waiting untill they make a solid Residual value. My rep at the Credit Union told me to wait for a month or so till they get the real values from ALG.. She said they are lowballing it to cover the banks ass if it was wrong.

My dealer here quoted me (2nd quote) on a fully loaded IS300:

36 months,12K miles per year, $3,500.00 drive off, $542.66 including tax with a 700pts credit rating. Don't know the residual but does it really matter if I will return the car for sure???

Original quote was $3000 higher (total monthly payment plus down) but it's for 48 months so I guess it works out to be the same since I'm paying $3000 more for the one extra year of depreciation. However, it's $1000 cheaper than your quote TEG...
