As the 2011s already arrived to dealer lot, I don't see why you can't get them to sell the car @ invoice, which is $69.2k before $2,500 credit and any downpayment.
In other word, you should be able to pay the same monthly without any down payment at all. If you really wanted to reduce the amount further, consider putting down multiple security deposits, which will drop your monthly by another $50/mo.
You can do better on 2010.
I thought coupe MF was 50% on 2010, and for 12k miles gotta be 51%, so you are being hosed there too.
If it is convertible, the 49% seems fine as 15K for Conv is 48%.
Coupe is a lot better deal. But Alas some times people like us want convertibles!
