Just do a quick internet search. Dealers in your area (Denver, if I remember correctly) are selling for less than invoice right now. Leasing for 1% of MSRP looks neither GREAT nor extraordinary now does it? Also, the lease on the Infiniti site is based on max 10,000 annual miles
If they're really going for $36,558, it's still a good deal... 1.09% of actual sale price. Average value leases usually run about 1.2-1.25%. Bad deals, higher.
This particular deal is on 10,000 miles/year... but 12-15,000 miles available at appropriately higher monthly payment.
Of course any lessee should "run the numbers" to see if he's getting a good deal...but <1%, rule-of-thumb, has traditionally been an outstanding and rarely seen deal. (You don't know the actual sales price/cap cost of a car until you do the deal... but when quickly evaluating lease offers, comparing "monthly payment + pro-rated down payment" vs. MSRP, 1% is rarely offered.)
