Here I initially thought the exchange between Empire and Craig-D was some new/slick marketing play..(not bashing but definitely a challenge that was met) Comments much appreciated from both sides!

This back and forth is why Tesla will make a huge impact, beyond the technological marvel that is the first gen Model S. No “stealership” hassles, foggy pricing, etc. Instead, go test drive the car, and if you like it order it online at home with the exact pricing and specs that you want. When the cheaper Model E comes, I hope Tesla “disrupts” the dealership experience even more as the price point comes down to more prospective customers. As much as I like my Audi, if I had a parking spot of my own, I would have a Model S right now.

I didn’t want to get in a back and forth here, but I do want to set the record straight on a few assumptions. One, Empire and I did spec out the exact car I wanted with options down to the paint color – I wrote everything down to remember it. Empire’s quote on the exact car was $600/per mo. with no money down but typical up front fees and taxes. I did the calculations to see what selling price led to that lease payment at the then money factor buy rate and residual, and it came to a bit more than $1000 over invoice – which is not bad at all for that particular hot-selling car. When it came time to make the deal, that exact car wasn’t available, so I had to take one with an additional $1000 in options. I got it for $560/per mo – and no, I didn’t put money down other than the typical upfront fees and taxes. It would be unwise for anyone to put money down on a lease. Two, the only terms on the lease that changed in the interim was that the 36 mo. residual dropped a point (from 57%… Read more »

Let me set the record straight since you did come across as bashing my business. You did not give me exact options on the car. Yes you did give me paint color and said you wanted premium plus with navigation, and that pretty much was about it. The car I had priced you had more options than that. German car builds are not cookie cutter like Japanese cars where for the most part everything is included in a certain trim level. With German marks, options are a la carte, so most cars will not be built the same. From what you say that the residual became worse and you received a car with more options at a lower price does not make any sense at all. The small change in money factor would not offset a 1 point residual change. You did state that you went and spoke to 10 different dealerships and had them compete against each other. Your typewritten words, not mine. And yes, I do get pricing on various car brands at a loss. You are incorrect. I get pricing way way below invoice, more than you can ever get. Dealers go way beyond holdback in many… Read more »

Well, we can go back and forth on this all day, but I’ll leave it at this and them I’m done here: the bottom line is I told you the monthly price I wanted to pay needed to begin with a “5” and you said it couldn’t be done for what I wanted. Well, I got it done – and I didn’t put money down to do it as you suggested. You’re right that the slightly lower money factor wouldn’t completely offset the 1% drop in residual. But that is not helpful to your argument, because the formerly higher residual should have made the earlier lease terms even cheaper. And I am well aware of how various car makers option their vehicles. I was in the business too, this isn’t my first rodeo. I asked about a specific vehicle spec for comparison purposes – I didn’t expect to ever get the exact configuration. I stated I next went (as in moved on to) and spoke to 10 different dealerships – I didn’t state I actually physically visited them. That’s a fool’s game. Even a sales price way below invoice and holdback isn’t a net loss for a dealer in most… Read more »

Empire Auto Leasing is a good solution for those who don’t know what they are doing and/or are too lazy to properly negotiate for a vehicle. So if you are the sort of sucker that walks into a dealer and leases a car without negotiating, then yes, Empire’s price will always be better than you’d get at a dealer. However, it’s incorrect to say Empire will always beat a dealer’s price. Allow me to explain: I walked into Empire not too long ago and got a quote on the exact model I wanted. Oddly, there was no negotiation – they knew up front what it would cost without calling a dealer. I then went and spoke to 10 different dealers. After making them all compete against each other for my business in a bidding process, 2 of them beat Empire’s quote by $40 a month. I took delivery from the dealer, and for $40 less per month the car I got actually had more options than the one Empire quoted for me – making it an even better deal. I also got free wheel locks thrown in. It’s a little known fact that advertised leases are based on MSRP –… Read more »

Craig D, I’m pretty sure I remember you. You came in asking about an Audi Q5. When you came in, you were not ready to lease a car for a few months. I gave you lease numbers on the Audi Q5, don’t remember what they were. I explained to you that lease programs change every month, so the numbers that I give you may or may not change in the coming months. You did not ask me the MSRP of the car I quoted you, nor did you ask me the selling price for the car I quoted you. And you did not ask for a list of options in the car that I quoted you. You did not even come back to me to see if I could do better, since you said you had the 10 dealerships compete against each other and me. And, when I called you to follow up, you said you had gotten the car. That was the following month and prices may have changed. I don’t operate like a car dealership where you have to negotiate the price. I provide a concierge auto service for busy people who don’t have the time or don’t… Read more »
