  • Hi there...

    I've been eyeing S4's for the past month and have a dealer offering me the following:

    2013 S4 Premium Plus

    $56,170 -MSRP

    $50,500 Sale Price INCLUDING $1000 extra bonus cash for competitor brand.

    Lease Breakdown:

    15k/year 42 Months.
    47% Residual
    Acquisition Fee: $695.00
    Adjusted Cap Cost: $55,048.44
    0 Down Except 1'st months payment.
    Money Factor: 0.00069

    $738.31-Monthly including Tax.

    IS THIS A DEAL? I feel the payment is still very high and something is being manipulated here by dealer? Anyone know what the buy rate Money Factor is for October? Residuals for October as well? In September, I was given a quote with I believe 52%??

    I know you have all seen this many times but this is my first time leasing so guidance is appreciated. Looking at a 2014 Audi S4 lease. Details below, pretty much describes exactly what I am looking for. What are the gotchya's that I need to ask for clarification on?

    Audi Mission Viejo, CA. $599 S4 Lease Special, $2999 down. 42 Month lease. Excludes 1st payment, tax, title, bank fee, and dealer fee. 10,000 miles per year/$0.25 per mile excess charge.

    2014 Audi S4 DSG in Ibis White with Black Leather with an MSRP of $58,090 that includes PREMIUM PLUS PACKAGE NAVIGATION PLUS PACKAGE, BANG & OLUFSEN SOUND, FINE NAPPA LEATHER PACKAGE, SPORT DIFFERENTIAL, CARBON FIBER INLAYS, 19 INCH ALLOY WHEELS, and SUPERCHARGED BADGES.

    2013 S4 Premium Plus 42mo, 15K/yr
    .00069 MF and 47% residual

    That 52% residual in September was probably for 36 months, not 42.

    Why is the adjusted CAP cost on your quote $4500 more than the selling price?

    It should be pretty straight forward.. but, you'll come up against a few things..

    1) Bank fee aka acquisition fee (around $700)
    2) Tax... CA is around 9% on the down payment, doc fee and bank fee, plus the same rate on the monthly payment
    3) Dealer/doc fee.. I think is limited to $80 in CA

    So.. you'll have about $4800 due at signing.. and the monthly payment will be about $655/mo, with tax...

    If you want AudiCare (factory recommended service included), add around $900, but that will raise the residual by 1%, so about $10/mo extra on the lease payment..

    They may try to sell you extras or add fees on top of that, but those would be unnecessary..

  • Kyfdx:

    I'm not sure why the cap cost is $4500 more than selling. This is exactly what's on the lease print out from dealer. Is this easily changed by dealer for us novice lessee's? I'm thinking something is off for the payment to still be $736.xx ?

    What should the cap cost really look like with 6% state tax?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,497
    Well.. if tax is paid upfront in your state, that could account for a lot of it.. That, plus an acquisition fee.. In what state do you reside?

  • The car would be registered in Maryland. Do you know where the residuals & buy rate money factors stand for October?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,497
    These were the October numbers that I posted before:

    2013 S4 Premium Plus 42mo, 15K/yr
    .00069 MF and 47% residual

    I'm pretty sure that Maryland taxes the full selling price of the car (plus doc and acquistion fees), so, that would account for the extra $4500 in the CAP cost, I think...

    Just was quoted .0014 MF and 56% Residual for a 2014 S4 Premium Plus.

    MF seems rather high. Can someone please confirm?

  • I'm trying to work a deal for a left over 2013 S4 P+. I see from above that the current 2014 lease numbers are: 36mo, 12K/yr lease, .00070 MF and 56% residual. What would they be for a 2013 instead?

    Also, is there a "sweet spot" for this lease, meaning are 24mo or 40mo much better?

    Thanks, this is a great thread for pre-lease negotiation.

    wish i knew about this forum earlier. i've scheduled car pickup later today (didn't sign anything yet) and now i feel i haven't done enough research. :(

    i never even asked about money factor, etc. don't know if it's too late to negotiate.

    i was quoted $782/mo 36/10K for Audi S4 S-Tronic Prestige MSRP $59,949 (reduced to $56,348) 0 down, 0 due at signing, no first payment, fees and taxes included (in NJ)

    am i being ripped?

    planning on getting all additional info once i get to the dealer but i feel like i should have done it when i was negotiating :(
