Audi S4 Lease Questions

    Hi Car_man,

    I am looking for the current residual % and money factor on a 2011 S4 premium plus lease for 39 and 42 months with 10k miles per year. This is for the midwest if that makes a difference. Does the money factor change if Audi Care is purchased (the audi maintenance plan)?
  • Does the money factor change when going from a 15k per year lease to an 18k per year lease for 36 months on a prestige plus car?

    the residual value is 54%.

    They are claiming the money factor is .00195 instead of .00127, are they trying to make profit on the money factor or does it change?

    I am in the eastern region.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Tre6, Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2011 S4 Sedan Premium with 10,000 miles per year are .00140 and 54%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42 month lease are .00140 and 53%.

    I believe that the addition of Audi Care adds 1% to your vehicle's residual value.

    Hi Mark. The money factor wouldn't change if you increase your mileage from 15,000 to 18,000, but your residual value would change.

  • Can you please confirm the residual and money factor for 2011 Audi S4 Premium Plus S-Tronic? Dealer is claiming rates went up on May 10 - residual at 52% (53% with Audicare) and money factor 0.0018 for 36 months/15K miles.

    Other than that, I think the deal looks OK
    MSRP $54,580
    My Price $52,108

    Final question, Audi care is $800 - how much do you think I can get off of this one?

    I'd be happy to audimanhouston. Audi Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 S4 Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00120 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I'm not sure what sort of profit margins are in Audi Care, but if you can negotiate a good price on it it's probably worth getting because it provides a 1% boost to your car's residual values, which would lower your lease payment.

    Hi speedgod1. Audi Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00120 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I would be happy to use this lease program to calculate a sample payment on the exact vehicle that you want for you if you provide me with its full MSRP and approximate selling price (or at least the MSRP and invoice price). You can find this pricing data over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    Thanks for the additional information, speedgod1.

    According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2011 S4 Sedan Premium Plus that has an MSRP of $51,975 and a selling price of $49,353 ($1,000 over invoice) through Audi Financial Services right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $712.

    Car man

    I'm looking to lease a 2012 Audi S4. I am new to leasing so need some help.

    The car I put together has an MSRP of around $58,500 (prest pkg, s tronic, nappa, sport dif, paint, and Carbon)

    They quoted me a monthly payment of $698 for 42 months with $7,000 up front and a $30,602 residual/buyout. All @ 12,000 miles a year

    Does this seem like a good deal? What other questions and information should I be getting and asking?

    Thanks

    Hi kylecb5431. the easiest way to evaluate this deal is to look at this car's selling price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Having the selling price makes it much easier to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given and in turn if there is any room left to negotiate. Let us know what this number is and I'm sure that either myself or another knowledgeable community member will gladly let you know what they think.

    Hello!

    I've got a good one here... I have entered into negotiation on the first 2012 S4 to reach my Audi dealership in the Southeast. All of my research only shows me MF's and Resid Values on 2011 models as opposed to any info on 2012 models. I am also unable to find any 2012 factory invoice data as well (the builds and pkgs have slightly changed). I consider myself a very informed and experienced car negotiator, but feel very naked and in the dark without any current *2012* data! Perhaps this forum can help?

    I am looking for the Audi July MF and Residual Values for... And any invoice data would be mot helpful as well.

    15,000 miles @ 36 months
    15,000 miles @ 39 months

    **2012** - S4 - 3.0 Sedan 4-Dr Auto S Tronic Quattro - $48,700
    - PRESTIGE Pkg - $6,700
    - Phantom Black Pearl Effect - $475
    -Inlay Stainless Steel Texture - $750
    -Silk Nappa Leather - $1,000
    -Sports Rear Differential - $1,100
    -Titanium Pkg - $1,000
    -Wheel Locks - $80
    -Destination Charge - $875

    Total MSRP - $60,680

    Thank you Host(s) for your attention and help!

    Thank you Car_Man, however, your reply has specified a "2011" year make, while the car I'm looking to lease is in fact a 2012 year make and due in at the end of the month.

    Wouldn't the MF and Residual be different from the 2011 for the new 2012 model?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    You're welcome swifty3. Good catch, that was a typo. Those were actually the numbers for a 2012 model, not a 2011.

    Car_man - Would you please give me the current mf / res % / incentives for:

    2011 S4 Premium Plus
    36 mos / 10,000 mi

    Thanks! I can't find the lease rate sheet for July anywhere!
  • deaddogdeaddog Posts: 11
    I see that Audi has $1500 loyalty cash on the 2011 now that 2012 are on the lot. Anybody care to guess when Audi will crank up the incentives to blow out remaining 2011 - August, September, November?
    thanks

    Car_Man-

    Looking at a 2012 S4 premium plus

    Was quoted $53,500 (MSRP $55,750) with a money factor of .0020 and a .61 residual.

    Their calculations came out to $799.00 a month including taxes (sales tax 6.5%) and fees on a 36 month 10,000 mile a year lease with $2,000 down.

    The dealer said the money factor was as low as they could go (even with top tier credit), which from what I have been reading here seems quite high.

    your thoughts on these numbers? appreciate it.
