  • I certainly can 140_6. Audi Financial Services' September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2012 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00154 and 65%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00154 and 58%.

  • Hi Carman, am thinking of leasing 2012 S4 Premium Plus in Southern California. Wondering about RV and money factor's out here and well as the additional "fee's", exclusive of title and registration, that you can expect to pay at drive off. Lease will be 3 years and either 12K or 15K per year. Thanks for your input!
  • Hi Carman,

    Looking to purchase a 2012 S4 Prem. plus automatic with rear differential, navi, 19inch, keyless, b&o system and carbon fiber inlays. MSRP of $56k

    What is the current money factor and residual value for a 3 year lease with 15k miles a year for well qualified buyers. Also, how much can I get off MSRP?

    Looking to buy in Los Angeles

    Thanks!

    I am currently looking at a 2012 S4 Manual with Prestige Pkt, Titanium Pkt, Sport Diff, Carbon Fib Inlays. MSRP 57,950 but I have negotiated it down to around 57k.

    36 months
    12,000 miles
    RS 33,031.5
    MF .00154

    Also trading in my car which will put around 9k towards the lease.

    Monthly fee with taxes around $649.

    How does this whole deal sound to you, what is your advice?
  • Hi intubator4. Audi Financial Services' September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2012 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00154 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year is 2% higher.

    At lease signing Audi Financial Services charges vehicle's first month's payment, a security deposit equivalent to that payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment, and a $695 acquisition fee.

  • Hi wutom22. Audi Financial Services' September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 S4 Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00154 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I'm personally not all that familiar with what the market is like for the S4 in your area right now, but if I was in the market for one I personally would shoot for around $1,000 or so over invoice. You can look up this car's invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

  • Hi Carman,
    I've ordered a 2012 S4 Premium Plus, and it will be here any day. Has Audi's October Buy Rate Money Factor and Residual Value on a 36 month/ 12k year lease changed any from the September numbers? I'm in Southern Calif. Thanks!
  • Hey intubator4. This car's October lease program is exactly the same as its September program was.

    Hi Car_Man,

    Would you be so kind so as to provide the October money factor and residual values for the 2012 S4 (both premium plus and prestige) for 36, 39 and 48 months at 10,000 miles. Hope I'm not asking too much, thank you in advance.
  • Hello flamingo4. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 S4 Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year are .00137 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier. The numbers for 39 and 48 month leases of this car are .00157 / 58% and .00195 / 53%.

    The money factors for the S4 Prestige would be exactly the same, but its residual values would be 3% lower.

  • Hi Carman,

    Can you please let me know the money factor and residual on a 2012 S4 Premium Plus Automatic....

    15K per year
    36 and 39 month

    I was quoted 57% and .00157 on a 36 mo/15K but that conflicts with other information I have found on the internet. Basically, I saw the money factor at .00137 rather than .00157.

    Thanks!

    Car man -- I was recently told the following two things by my Audi dealer in Connecticut -- could you please confirm whether or not they are true?

    1. The doc, registration, and acquisition fees of ~$1,300 in total are taxed at the CT state tax rate of 6.35%. This adds over $80 to the upfront payment. I have never heard of having these fees taxable.

    2. AFS is waiving the first months lease payment on new leases for an S4.

    Thanks much in advance.
  • Here you go RonA13. Audi Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00137 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are .00157 and 55%.

  • Thanks Car_man!

    I seem to recall when I leased my current Audi that it was no problem to get the base rate money factor on the deal. How things have changed...
  • As a female walking into a dealer, I feel I have an extra hoop to jump through to get a fair deal...

    Would you please let me know what AFS' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value would be for a 42-month lease of a 2012 A4 Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year?

    My understanding, is that a dealer can/will mark up the MF? Are fees outside the acquisition fee of $695.00 negotiable in IL? After talking to 3 different Audi dealers...it's been very frustrating not only to get correct information/details on a deal, but actual information. I'm not sure what to believe at this point. Would appreciate understanding if I'm getting a decent deal, or what I need to do to get one.

    Current deal:

    2012 A4 premium plus
    MSRP: $40,325
    Invoice: $37,956.25
    Current sell price: $39,000
    My purchase price/residual vale: $20,198
    Fees w title/registration:$1085
    Trade in value for my 2009 A4 premium with 16,300 miles: $24K
    * i would also be eligible for a sales tax credit at 7.25%
    $0 down
    $477.33 a month payment
    10K miles/42 month lease

    The whole "trade in" factor has been interesting, as I don't own the car - AFS does. Do you know what the dealer purchase price would be? They won't give me this information. I know they would not want to purchase the vehicle if they weren't making a profit. I was also told this dealer would only go $1K above invoice, while others have gone a few hundred above.
  • Hi Car Man,

    I got a great deal on my 2011 Audi S4 (many thanks to you), but unfortunately finances have taken a hit and we need to get out of our lease. I read the Edmund article on Leasetrader and Swapalease, but as far as I can tell, Audi Financial Services keeps you on as backup creditor even when you sign a lease over to someone else.

    Do you know how this works? Or are there any other options? Anyone? We really need help.

    Thank you!!!
  • You're very welcome RonA13.

  • Hey redsushi. I'm sorry to hear about your finances taking a hit. Unfortunately, that sort of thing is way too common nowadays. Other than finding someone to assume it, I don't believe that there is any inexpensive way for you to get out of your lease early. As you said though, what you heard about the original lessee remaining liable is similar to what I have heard about transferring an AFS lease as well, which is obviously not ideal.

    Hi Car_Man.
    Is there a difference in residual between a manual S4 and an auto S4? On a 36 month/12K lease, some dealers are quoting 56% and others 59%.
    Thanks!
  • Hi jfee. There isn't a difference between the residual values for S4s with manual and automatic transmissions, but there is a difference between the Premium Plus and the Prestige, 59% vs. 56%.

    Hi Car Man,

    Do you have the new January 2012 money factor and residuals for the Audi S4? I am looking for 36 months at both 10k and 12k miles per year.

    Thanks,

    -Eric

    Also looking for MF and residuals on 10k 36month and 39 month with the premium plus package. I am in Cleveland, Ohio and was curious as to what kind of pricing to expect on a MSRP of 54,650, ice silver paint with premium sound and navi pckgs. Any help is appreciated!
  • js2012js2012 Posts: 4
    Was just at Audi and here's the deal I had priced up. MSRP of $56,050 - S4 premium plus with nappa leather, nav, sport diff, prem sound, carbon inlay,advanced key, and paint upgrade.

    36 mo, 10k mi lease with $5,500 due at signing (includes 1st month, tax, title, doc fee, etc) is $575 a month (incl tax @ 7.75%). Residual of 59% and MF of .00106. I think I did pretty good on it, but would like to know your thoughts.
  • I think you did well as well. I did see that the MF is 0.00080 for an S4 however, but your out of pocket and monthly look good to me. What was the final selling price? Were you under invoice? Was this for one on the lot or an order? Any trade?
    I'm looking at trading in now for a 2012 S4, so I'd appreciate any more info. So far i'm being given number much worse than yours.
  • js2012js2012 Posts: 4
    Final selling price was $53,663 ($1,000 over invoice). This was showroom model, which just happened to be the one I had built on Audi USA . com. Paint, options, everything. So, I felt it was meant to be, ha.

    No Trade, but I did get them to do a $1,000 conquest cash incentive as I am currently driving a benz. I did think the MF was a bit high, but they said that was best they could do and that .0008 rate was for A4 model and not the S4. Not sure if geography comes into play, but I'm up in northeast Ohio.

    Asked them to throw in the winter mats as well and now I am picking it up tonight! Best of luck to you on your search. Let me know if you want any other details.
  • Thanks - how much of the $5500 was actual money down on the car? I'm trying to get my figures straight. I'm still seeing my calculations way over $600pm.
    I think the market on the east coast here might be a little different, but it shouldn't make that much difference.
  • Hey Eric. Audi Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 12,000 miles per year are .00080 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with only 10,000 miles per year is 1% higher.
