I knew right from the start that I would only keep it for 3 years. For that scenario (and that scenario alone), that lease still was the best deal.

JT4's advise for having the dealer shop around for other lease-offers is interesting though. I never considered that before because prior to my lease, I always thought you were basically bound to the manufacturer's leasing-bank. fininacing - no doubt you have many options but on a lease, I never played with that idea...

Man, I can tell you that these deals seem to be harder to get these days - especially on luxury vehicles...

Some marques are better than others at attractive leasing ie BMW and Lexus. Have to wait unitil there's strong factory/trunk money and the leases are nicely subsidized, but Audi leases have always been unattractive b/c the factory generally offers little. When i used to lease Lexus' for my wife the Lexus December to remember was THE best time of year bar none to lease from them.

Great reminder. I went with P+ instead of Prestige, but spec'ed my P+ to be as close to the prestige I was considering, and my monthly payment was about $100 less for exact same MSRP Prestige.

OP here. Went to another dealership and got what I think is a pretty good deal:
$880/month including tax, 42 months, 12k miles, 0 at signing
2019 Q7 P+ 3.0
+driver assistance, +cold weather, +warm weather

On the surface that appears better especially for a real 0 due at signing. FYI there's great incentives on 19's right now.

12.5% off MSRP. Not bad.

Buy a CPO. You’d spend the same buying a used one.

Absolutely try this.. I have been doing this for years on leases, you should treat the process no different than if you're financing. Usually when I am quoted a number one of the first things I ask is "who is this with". IME nine out of ten times the sales person (unless you know him or her well) will tell you it's through the manufacturers financing company.. Then ask them to shop it and they will usually come back to you with two other numbers through a Credit Union, TD Bank, Chase etc..

IME usually the manufacturers have the best rates, only Audi and one time with Acura did I go through a 3rd party lender for a better lease deal.. I've leased three Lexus' in the past and no one could get close to the rates and support that LFS provided.

Nice to see there are dealers out there that provide this. My horrible dealer refused to provide these details for leases unless I agreed to terms, I didn't push too hard since lease wasn't going to make sense for me anyway (wanted 4 year ownership) but it was crazy they just wanted you to agree a monthly payment without any details at all (not even the residual amount).
