    When I plug in your numbers with a 55% residual, I get a pre-tax payment of $434.19.

    The MF seems to be marked up - base MF is .00018 for top tier customers.

    Micheal, $434.19 seems right. I forgot to note down the exact montly amount. Is $434.19 a good deal ? i think thats with taxes inclusive ?

    I would confirm the MF being used by the dealer .. if they've marked it up, you have some room to negotiate a lower payment by using the base MF.

  • Hello: I see this question comes up all the time - so I apologize - but could you please share the current MF and residual percentages on the 2014 A4 Premium Plus 8 speed AWD for 12k and 15k miles, 36 mo lease? And, if the quoted MF from my dealership is different, what is your advice, please? THANKS!

    .00039 and 52% for 15K. Add 2% for 12K.

    If the MF the dealer is using is different, ask them why. Either they are marking it up for extra profit or they are using a finance company different than Audi FS. Tell them you will only use the base MF from AFS, or walk.

    @michaell@admundos.com So as i understood the residual value is always on 3% less for 15k and 1% less for 12k then the 10k residual value. Is this correct? Thanks.

    Correct .. Audi sets their base residual at 15K .. add 2% for 12K and 3% for 10K.

  • kyfdx@Edmunds I got a quote 2014 Audi A4 Quattro Premium Plus with Black Optic Package and Sport Package. 15k/36 months. MSRP: 42925. Capital Cost: 37255. Residual 53% (with Audi Care $860) and MF was .00039 Drive off: $1768. Monthly payments: $458. What are your thoughts?

  • bbell40941bbell40941 Posts: 18

    Are residual and MF the same for 2WD as for Quattro? If not, what are the residual and MF for A4 with Premium Plus and 2WD, 15K/36 months?

    If that is your NET cap cost, I show $426/mo. plus tax, so it looks like a really solid deal. Base rates all around. I doubt you could do much better, given that lease program.

    .00018 MF and 50% residual for FWD. MF is a little lower, but so is the residual, compared to Quattro.

    Only 57% residual after 24 months? Only 7% additional depreciation for 36 month? Seems like buying a 2 year old is a better play.

    Yeah, but you've got 12 fewer payments in which to cover the depreciation. Could be a wash.

    I mean buying a 2 year old, not leasing for 2 years. Seems like A4 has a steep initial depreciation, which slows after 2 years.

    Oh - sorry! Haven't had any caffeine yet today.

    I think your statement is true for just about any luxury manufacturer - buy a used one that is 24-36 months old, where there is still plenty of life left, but the major part of the depreciation curve has already hit.
