So, officially reserved/ordered my Q50 today at the dealer: hybrid AWD premium fully loaded (except sport). Malbec black exterior; graphite interior.
Here's the details of my lease quoted:
Residual %/amount: 64% $34,044.80
Total add cap cost: $700
Adjusted cap cost: $53,869.72
Customer cash down (drive off): $ 1,250.00 (1st month, etc. $0 down payment)
Base monthly rental: $657.78
Payment (including tax) : $722.24
If 24months term, the payment goes up to over $820.
It's more expensive than I hoped, but I doubt if they have much flexibility. Besides, they took care of my Lexus lease.
ETA: 8/13. The manager was able to order mine together with theirs today. So my Malbec black Q50 will be among the very first arrivals!
Deposit $1000. It was confirmed that in Aug after test drive MY Q50, if for any reason I want to back out the deal/lease, I will not be obligated.
