  • Hey Car Man, Thanks. I ordered this in August, MF.00194 residual w/Audicare 53%. I pick it up in about a week. What savings should I see if they go by Novembers lease rate and residual. MSRP $54,630, selling price $52,830.

    Is this a good deal?

    42 months
    15K miles per year
    2011 S4
    premium plus, Navig, B&O

    $680 per month .. I pay taxes upfront+ MV+Fees
    waived security deposit, 1st month credited towards next months bill cycle

    I don't have exact selling price, but it is certainly above invoice and below MSRP of 52K

    Form what I am hearing , at lease end with these cars, it pays to but them and either certify them or sell them for a small profit.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?
  • Any thoughts on whether the increased price is worth it?

    Here is what I'm deciding between:

    Loaded S4 Prestige
    $59,525 MSRP
    $56,653 Selling Price ($1,000 over invoice)
    Residual 51% with audi care and 12K
    0.0019 Money factor
    $1,597 Drive off
    42 months $874 including CA tax


    Minimal optioned S4 Premium Plus
    $54,950 MSRP
    $53,077.78 Selling price ($1,000 over invoice)
    Residual 55% with audi care and 12K
    0.0019 money factor
    $1,597 drive off
    42 months $772 including CA tax
  • I would get the MSRP, true selling price, money factor and residual value. Also, make sure that all fees are spelled out. Without this info, you can't judge what kind of deal you're getting. Even with this info, it's tough...

    As others have mentioned, I wouldn't pay any cap cost reduction and paying tax "up front" is essentially cap cost reduction.

    This is so helpful. I'm also really excited about getting an S4. I'm in CA (Bay Area). I was able to negotiate $750 over Invoice. HOWEVER, I see they have added $450 in Port and Dealer Ad Group (DAG) fees. This is in addition to the Destination Charge ($875), DMV ($633) and "Doc Fees" ($55). Is this standard? Or is this just a way for the dealer to get more out of the deal?
  • Hi milazzo1. Using the numbers that were available at the time that you placed your order, I come up with a zero down, pre-tax monthly payment of around $822.

    Using AFS' November numbers for this car, .00170 / 51%, I come up with a payment of around $831.

    The month factor is slightly better right now, but this is more than offset by the 2% drop in this car's residual value.

  • Not sure how many details you need. but can someone figure out the money factor from this information? Also looking for any information on your opinion on the deal.

    2011 S4 Premium Plus, Nav, B & O, 19" wheel w/Titanium Package

    $52,725 Purchase price

    36 months/ 10k miles a year /$723 a month/ 5k down, covers all tax title and license
    42 months/10k miles a year /$694 a month/5k down covers all tax title and license

    58% residual value
  • Hi All, I ordered an S4 2 months ago and put a deposit but feel like I am paying a lot so wanted to confirm here.
    The car is Prestige, auto, drive select, Titanium package, rear airbags, adaptive cruise.

    msrp $63,450
    my price $62,000

    MF is 0.0015
    Residual 54%

    My monthly is $940 with Audicare (36 months, 12K miles?). However, I also have a down payment of $4600. Does this sound right? Appreciate any input.
  • Hi car man, hope you or others can chime in here. I was told car wil be delivered soon. I am in manhatthan New York. punching the numbers into a lease calculator puts me at even higher monthly so maybe the price is ok after all?

    2011 S4 Premium Plus, Deep Sea Blue, Manual, sports diff, nav and back-up camera, and some other goodies bringing the MSRP to over 52k.

    42 months, 15k a year
    $948 down
    with Audi Care
    $732 a month
    in New jersey

    I wanted a true sign and drive but at the end of the day the numbers seemed good so I pulled the trigger. Thoughts?
  • Hi first_audi. Audi Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 S4 Prestige with 12,000 miles per year are .00145 and 50%, respectively. This residual value is 1% higher on vehicles that are equipped with Audi Care.

    The program that you were quoted previously is better than this, so if the dealer locked it in try to use it.

    You aren't being given a huge discount off of MSRP, but A) this is a low volume vehicle and B) you ordered it so this may be as good as it gets.

    I recently went in to test drive an S4. It is black with the sport diff and 19" wheels. MSRP is 50,305.

    Just to start off we ran the lease numbers off of the MSRP with a 57% resid and a MF of .00185. With 1k down the monthly payments come to 884/mo for a 10k mile/36 mo lease. At this point I was just trying to get a general feel for the payments and didn't negotiate at all (I just started looking).

    The dealer said that Audi no longer does multiple security deposits like BMW does, is this true? I thought I had read online somewhere that they were doing them. Also do the MF and residual sound reasonable. This is my first lease, I've always bought cars outright and I'd appreciate any help.
  • Hi jca551. The money factor that you were quoted looks slightly high to me. According to the latest information that I have seen, Audi Financial Services' January buy rate for the 2011 S4 Sedan is .00145 for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Looking for a S4 titianium package Premium Plus with the Bang audio. Here is my quote:

    MSRP 49,875
    Selling price 48,875
    Money factor: .00215
    Residual: 53%

    $1000 due on delivery
    12,000 miles/42 months

    $735 plus tax

    Thoughts? Money factor seems high, residual seems low. Will they throw in Audi Care.
  • very high lease numbers.

    MF should be .00145 for tier 1 credit. If you have tier 2 credit you are looking at .002 or higher, which is where you are at. This can increase the lease by 70 or so per month so check to make sure what MF is based on. If you are Tier 1 and they are increasing your MF by that much, get another quote.

    I was just quoted S4 titanium, nav, B&O, rear differential with the following:

    Money Factor: .00165
    Residual: 54%

    690 per month - 3500 total out of pocket. 42 months. 12k miles.

    This is a very good deal.
