lol... what's your definition of cheap? 800 dollars a month is not cheap by any means, 250-300, that's reasonable, but still not cheap

Sorry, I should have said a lower cost lease than what I'm currently paying.

Still vague, the longer the lease the cheaper it will be per month

If you're just looking at monthly cost, on a base Audi A3, you can be paying anywhere from 750 a month on a 24 month lease, to 500 a month on a 48 month lease... this is coming directly from the Audi website with whatever discount they have listed on their site

I don't understand why you're looking at total monthly cost, you should be looking at the total cost of car, and then the residual if you're leasing... i'm assuming you already know this given that you're doing a 24 month lease

Rest assured He’s just here to humble brag and not actually looking for suggestions.

Not here to humble brag, but was actually looking for suggestions. Plenty of well informed people on here with similar budgets, but I guess no one wants to discuss leasing deals.

$800/m may not be cheap to you but it may be cheap to some people. There are $1200-$1500/m leases out there that people sign up for. Plenty of choice for all budgets. $250-300 lease is going to be virtually non existent on a 24 month lease with nothing down.

Holy smokes, 2 - $800/month lease payments is worth more than my current car. I need to make more income to keep up with rfd.

Eh, this site is geared towards people who want to be frugal, not people who come on here with a blanket “currently drive a Range Rover, give me some deals for around the same. Thanks”

LOL we have some ballers on here but do your own research and ask opinions.. we aren’t your [free] shopping maids to find you deals. 🤣

I know, I know, no time machine, but the $0 down, $248 tax in, maintenance in, CLA for 2 years/ 24,000 kms/yr ex-Car2Go leases like we got for our son were legendary.

I’m also in the market for a new lease coming up in January. It’ll be primarily city driving so I don’t need anything fancy (work is 18km away). Aiming for 36 month term with 0 down, I’ve pretty much narrowed it down to: Corolla, Civic, Elantra, Mazda3. I’ve realized sub $300 is pretty much non existent so I’m looking to stay as close to $300 as possible per month.
