Glad I can help! I expect VW will release holiday bonus cash on all models, probably a 3-7 days before Memorial day, which will probably be another $500 good with any purchase/lease. I'll post it here once I receive documentation.

Is that MF of .00001 correct for 2017 GTI leases? So, if a dealer just quoted me a MF of .00051 they are marking it up .00050 on their end?

I'd have to double-check, but yes I believe the MF for Tier 1 is .00001. I believe they are allowed to pad it, or VCI hasn't approved your financing at Tier 1.

They hadn't even run my credit, yet. I told them it was ~750, though. We qualified for Tier 1 for my wife's BMW X3 a few months ago, so....


Thanks for the help, Shane!

Sorry for the delay, just got a chance to double-check. Tier 1-2 factor is 0.00001 for 12-36mo leases, 0.00051 for 37-48mo. So either they were quoting the longer-term money factor, or they're indeed padding. The bumps for lower credit tiers do not match what they told you.

So I am a little confused with all of the jargain.

I am seeing 2018 gti s listed as low as 20,800. The MSRP is around 27k+.


How are they getting it that low with only my18 $1000?

How can I use this huge price cut toy advantage at local dealers when they are listing msrp Only?

They are including every rebate/discount possible stacked. Typically divide that in half would give you realistic selling price. VW dealers in certain markets use click bait marketing.

The cash amounts are what VW/VCI is offering as incentives. The dealer is free to sell the vehicle for whatever price they choose, which means they can advertise a price that is invoice, minus the $1000, and keep only their volume bonus plus whatever stair-step cash they get for meeting their sales targets (I don't have access to everything, unfortunately). They'll still make a reasonable profit based on that, plus whatever additional extended warranties, finance products, service contracts, and the kickbacks they get from VCI or whatever bank for arranging the financing. Also, as Oldschoolmk7 points out, the fine print on the website may also have loyalty/military/college/diplomat/supplier and whatever other programs they could possibly stack together, even though barely anyone would be eligible for all of those programs simultaneously. There's a Chrysler dealer in Southeast MI that regularly advertises Ram 1500 or Grand Cherokee leases in the $150-$250 range with less than $1000 down, IF you're an FCA employee and a returning lessee. Add $1000 to the down payment for each of those criteria that you don't meet. Technically, it's not false advertising.



Post the link here and I'll have a look.

It looks like the only Meorial Day incentives for VW are an additional $500 military/first responder dollars for a total of $1000 for military/first responders

Yeah, I was a bit surprised that they didn't do a "$500 bonus cash on everything" program, but maybe they are trying to scale back the incentive cash as a way of enhancing the perceived value of the brand.
