Audi S4 Lease Questions



  • Looking for Jan lease rate for 2013 S4 Premium Plus with 15K miles per year for 36 months - with Audi Care, which the dealer gave me for free. I custom ordered my car in Nov and it's supposed to arrive at the dealer in Feb. The lease rate in Nov is my ceiling, however if it goes down between when I placed the order and when I take delivery I will get the lower rate. Was wondering if the rate had changed since Nov?

    Lease programs in effect as of January 2013 through early April 2013 for 2013 S4 Premium Plus 36 months 15K is:

    MF: .00068
    Residual: 53% (add 2% for 12K; add 3% for 10K)
    AudiCare adds 1%

    Residuals seem low (down 3% from this time last year for MY2012)...perhaps I was given the residuals for Prestige. For that reason, I always defer to Car_man to confirm the numbers I obtain and post.
  • I wouldn't mind at all isles1. Audi Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 12,000 miles per year are .00068 and 55% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42-month lease are .00088 and 51%.

  • Hi dlajoie. Audi Financial Services' January lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 S4 Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00068 and 53% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier. I believe that the addition of Audi Care boosts the car's residual value by 1%.

  • Car_man, would you know if this would be the same rate as in Nov?

    MF: .00105
    Residual: 54% (add 2% for 12K; 3% for 10K)
  • Hello Car_man. I'm looking to get an S4 premium plus, 36 mo, 12k mi/yr, lease in April. Will rates fluctuate much by then? Also, what is considered top-tier credit? I'd like to see if there are things I can do to my credit to improve it by then. Thanks

    The original Audi S4, built from 1991 until 1994, was a performance-oriented version of Audi's 100 saloon/sedan.

    am I getting an good deal?
    msrp - 57050 premium plus with alcantara black, navi, advanced key, sports diff

    with all taxes and audi care - 777 out the door, 15k 42 month, no money down?
  • anyone have thoughts on alcantara vs napa leather?

    We have the Alcantara in our S4. Test drove the nappa leather model too.

    It's really up to you. We find the Alcantara to be extremely durable. Of course, you never know until 5-6 years down the road. But, it sure does look and feel more durable.

    Plus, the alcantara won't "crinkle" like the nappa leather will over time.

    What were you quoted for sales price, money factor and residual value? That's the only way to really know if the numbers are good. Any cap cost reductions/incentives?

    Depending on your sales tax rate, the monthly payment seems pretty good. Sounds like you may have qualified for a $1,000 conquest cash incentive.
  • 53,400. MF .001365 and residual at 50 percent with the Audi Care factored in

    Current "buy rate" money factor for a 42 month term is .00088. Dealer is padding the money factor for profit or Audi Financial has raise it for reasons due to your credit.

    The residual value is correct with AudiCare factored in.

    Sales price seems okay based on MSRP of ~ 57K...but you should check the actual invoice here on and aim for $500 over invoice (or less...start at or below invoice). That is not always possible depending on locale, but if this car is on the lot, you may have some leverage.

    The payment you posted still seems low with that sales price and quoted MF, especially since sales tax in rolled into the payment. Are you sure that number is not based on money down? You need to get the MF lowered, then make sure dealer is not adding fees that you are expected to pay up front.

    Payment seems high with such a large drive off amount. What is being paid at signing besides first month payment?

    What is the quoted money factor?

    What fees are being charged in addition to the sales price?

    Did you check invoice in the new car section of Shoot for a sales price about $500 above invoice for an in-stock car. So offer $1K under invoice and try to get AudiCare thrown in or discounted. Bumps residual value by 1%

    I just checked the invoice price, gave me: Invoice
    $57,466 with all those options.
    The price they offer is $55,950.
    I dont know their MF and Residual, but with the numbers you provided last page:
    MF: 0.00068
    Residual: 56% (since it's 10,000mi/y, $31334.8 compare to their $31,572.10 )
    DP: $3500

    The lease calculator:
    Total Loan Amount $52,455
    Monthly Payment (tax included) $697
    Security Deposit $500

    I guess 699 w/o tax is a little high... about $62 more a month...

    Invoice on an S4 with MSRP of $59700 is not $57466. Recheck the options that you are selecting. You'll have to approximate for the CF inlays, as Edmunds does not list them as an option.

    $3500 due at signing is not the same as a 3500 down payment.
  • Hello,

    I'm looking to lease a 2013 S4 Prestige for 36 months with 10k miles a year. The MSRP is $62,270.

    The dealer gave me these numbers:

    Selling price - $60,365
    Title and registration - $221.65
    Money Factor - 0.00098
    Residual - 55% (10,000 miles)
    Wear and tear insurance and Audi Care - $1,679

    $4696.88 of negative equity rolled into the payments.

    $0 out of pocket.

    The dealer is quoting $1113.00 per month including tax (PA). Does this look okay? Is the residual and mf look normal?

    Thanks for your help!

    Selling price is too high, at least $1K too high. Look up invoice here on Shoot for sales price of $500 over invoice by offering $1K under invoice, especially if the car is on the lot.

    Money factor should be .00068 for a 36 month term if you qualify for top tier credit. Residual is spot on with AudiCare.

    IMHO, drop the wear and tear insurance. AudiCare MSRP is $880; at best, you'll get $50 off that price.

    Not sure where the negative equity is coming from, but you may want sell that car privately, or push for a better trade in value. When you start throwing trades in the mix, you muddy the waters and it is harder to tell what kind of deal you are actually getting.

    With all that said, that monthly payment is downright scary.
