    Hi all,

    Looking at a 2013 Premium plus - MSRP 45,875. What would be a good deal for this car?

    Thanks.

    try looking on here at the invoice and on truecar.com There are so many configurations for the car it's tough to tell exactly, but in general there seems to be a $2800 - 3500 spread from MSRP to Invoice on the A4.

    Also, see if you qualify for an existing manufacturers rebate like a loyalty program, or a conquest rebate. Eg. if you already own an Audi or a direct competitor like BMW, MB, Acura, Lexus Infiniti.

    I wound up paying about $1000 under invoice because of the rebate. Also, don't fall for surcharges like glass etching for $250 or anything. Finally, you could end up with the car at or below invoice, but get low balled on the trade in.

    not a specific answer but gives you some things to think about in your research

    Very good answer. You really can give an answer until you post an invoice cost.
    Negotiate cost of car before trade in. Again do not purchase extras.

    Just came back from a Audi dealer with the following offer:

    MSRP: 32,300

    Offered sales price: 24980

    Tax: 1,66*.00
    Dealer fee: 599.00
    Then there are tag application fee and another small fee add to roughly $90
    Total OTD: 27,3**.00

    Then I was able to bring it down a bit to $26,950 and they wouldn't go down anymore.

    About the car:
    FWD Premium
    36K miles on it
    3.5 years of CPO left on the car
    clean carfax, one lease owner
    the dealer is willing to thrown in all-weather mats for free

    Any ideas if this is a good/okay deal? Thanks!!

    You need to do some more research on the car. What is blue book value? What is msrp? Is that the original msrp? There is no msrp on a used car, only a new car. There is a dsrp though. You need to do a little more homework to see if you are getting a good deal.

    Also I do not see any sense in buying a fwd Audi, the reason people buy is for the handling and you do not have that with a fwd Audi.
  • hithere6hithere6 Posts: 2
    That's the original MSRP. KBB is $28437.

    I intended to buy a AWD, but after some research I changed my mind. I am a regular commuter coming from a Honda Accord, so FWD has enough features I am looking for for an A4 for now. Thank you for your advice. How about the price tho?
  • jnyzjnyz Posts: 93
    What is the year? i'm not really into used cars but I would assume anything under KBB wholesale would be a good deal.

    Just purchased 2013 A4Q with similar pkg with phantom black pearl color in NV. Your invoice price should be around $36.2k (Audi currently offer Preferred Equipment Credit, please check Audi website for special offer). So dealer offer for $35.5k is below invoice. I took advantage of loyalty $1k and conquest $1k to further reduce the price below invoice. Also, took advantage of 1.9% financing up to 66 mo.
    Few thoughts, with end of mo approaching, there could be more incentive. I am a loyal BMW-3 owner for 10 years and Audi has done a tremendous job to convert my brand loyalty. I purchased Q5 for my wife few mo ago after considering X3 and I decided on A4 after considering 2013 BMW 3. I must say it is not all about price but features compare side by side, Audi offers more. I could not find any BMW below $40k with light pkg and the new Audi light pkg is so nice. Good Luck!!

    Well I can't agree with you more on the BMW to Audi comparison. Especially if you want all wheel drive. I have owned 3 A4s and this one is by far the best, but I have to say BMW is rely the one pushing Audi. To me there is a big difference between the 2013 and 2012 A4 and I attribute that to the 2012 BMW 3 series.

    The interior trim on the A4 is significantly better on the 2013 vs 2012. Eg real leather vs leatherette. Improved gps and maps. More thoughtful button function and nicer use of aluminum trim.

    That being said, if the BMW was within $1000 for the same features I would but the BMW. But it isn't. One thing I noticed is the BMW 3 series stock stereo is garbage whereas the Audi is nice. Although I would still spring for the B & O because that one is I credible for stock.

    Anyway. Congrats on your new car. Enjoy it.

    Thanks ydol. When we ordered (have a deposit on a 2013 P, but hedging on an in-production 2014 P+) there was no Audi preferred equipment credit. Will watch the web to see if any other discounts pop up by the end of the month. Sadly, don't think the 2014 P+ will get any credits.

    I would suggest to push for getting additional conquest rebate ($1k) by mentioning that you seriously considering BMW 3-Series. I found it helpful during negotiation. Also, I encourage to test drive the BMW-3. That's what I did before getting my A4 and Q5 (test drove X3). The BMW dealer currently offers invoice + 500 and there is $750 loyalty rebate so that is comparable to your current offer.
  • Is there anywhere I can save some money? It's a A4 quattro Premium with Convenience and Lighting I think.

    Do your homework and find out what the invoice is on the car. Tell them you will pay that and not a penny above. Tell them to shove the doc fee and Lic fee. That should save you 50.00-100.00 a month.

    Oh yeah, and last year when I bought my 2013 I got it at invoice + a great deal on my trade in and it had just come out days before.

    If they know you are serious about buying, they should deal with you.

    looking to purchase a new 2013 A4 but trying to understand pricing between the 2013 vs 2014 models. checked on kelley bb and edmunds for the fmv and the 2013 and 2014 models are almost on top of each other in terms of $. is this right? if i buy a 2013, the moment i drive it off the lot the car is a year old and has depreciated by 20%. shouldn't this be factored into the price or am i missing something? thanks.
  • jnyzjnyz Posts: 93
    2013's will be discounted at the dealership more than 2014's.

    thanks escortowner.
    I have a Acura and I was told that the conquest rebate is limited to BMW and Mercedes only. There are no added rebates.
