    1) This has not been factored in.

    2) Yes, this could explain the difference. I did not discuss any drive-off fees.

    They're actually offering me a decent value for my trade-in. I might be trading my 2003 A4 3.0 CVT for a 2005.5 A4 3.2 Quattro tomorrow.

    Thanks.

    Anyone know what the interest rate for a purchase is under the loyalty program? (5 year)
  • rjlaerorjlaero Posts: 659
    Interest rates have nothing to do with loyalty money. You get the $1000 lease cash if your a current A4 owner.

    Interest rates are the same whether you currently have an Audi or not, and there aren't any special rates with Audi on the A4's to my knowledge right now.
  • The loyalty program is offering .00072 money factor for leases, I thought they'd also have an interest rate.

    Anyhow, I'm so close yet so far away. The dealer and I have a difference of $23 per month in what we want. The time is ticking, I have until 09.06.05.
  • I am a novice to this forum (as well as to car buying). I am in Central NJ and have liked the 2006 A4 2.0T, quattro, auto.

    I am not sure which options I will get, but can anyone tell me, how much over Invoice price would be considered a good deal? I have my financing options completely open (buy, lease or finance).

    Also, another question, a little out of place - How does the car compare with Volvo S40 T5 AWD, auto?
  • Hello,
    I saw this forum and was wondering if you could help me. I've never leased a car and plan to lease an Audi A4 2.0T Quattro. I live in the Dallas, TX area. The MSRP of the car I have is $36,710 (Pemiium, Sunroof, S-Line Pack) + $720 Destination. The invoice is $34,005.

    I recall in one of your posts last week you had said that Audi is offering $2500 dealer cash for this car. I asked Audi and they claimed to not know anything about this. Is this the case? I am looking for a 15K mile 24 or 36 month lease. What do you think my payments would be like respectively and fair? I know that Audi is offering special lease offers till Nov, but do you know what I should expect to pay out of pocket upon signup so they don't tack up fees?

    I appreciate any feedback you can give. i just graduated college and this will be my first car lease and I don't want to be had. I would really be thankful for any of your expertise.

    Thank-you again
  • Just in case you're looking in the Chicago area, I've had just about every dealer in the area respond with everything from MSRP to $1000 off MSRP. I had one dealer offer me the technology package free ($1275) and that's what I took. Good luck.
  • Is it still on (1,000) for October? If you own a VW does it apply ordo you have to own an Audi?

    I have decided to lease an A4 with leather and Bose but without the premium, lighting or cold packages. I don't want to pay for options I really don't want. I have been to 3 dealers in the SF Bay Area and have not seen one A4 without the premium package. So apparently I need to order one but this too seems challenging. None of the sales guys has been interested in assisting this effort (amazingly no followup calls!) and one, at Rector in Burlingame, even said he would not even consider ordering such a car. (This was a guy who mixed up CVT with the type of engine).

    So the questions are:
    1) How do you get these guys to order one?
    2) Can you negotiate price on something they don't want to do?
    3) If you lease, do you negotiate the price as you order or just wait till it comes in?

    Finally, has anyone driven an A4 Avant? Do they drive similarly to the sedan?

    Looks like there are some "new" lease deals on the 2006 A4s (as opposed to the deals on the 2005.5 models).

    Can anyone deduce the selling price (as opposed to the MSRP they list), MF and residual from these deals? On surface, appealing because under $1000 drive off and well under $400 a month before taxes.

    A4 2.0T FWD lease on audiusa.com

    It appears the Bay Area Audi dealers don't want to do this deal because they don't have stripper FWD models? Instead, they want more money up front for a Quattro with Premium and Sunroof (the Audi site doesn't let you de-select the sunroof :()

    Bay Area lease deal (click on A4 lease link)

    $34,910 MSRP (Tiptronic, sunroof, Premium, destination), 24-month, $1999 lease inception ($1,065 down + $575 acquisition + $359 first month), 10k miles per year.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,923
    Actually... If you scroll down on the national deal, it also shows an '06 A4 Quattro with sunroof... but, it only has an MSRP of $33,060... vs. the Bay Area example of $34,910..

    The residual for that one is 76% for 24mo./20K mileage lease..

    Not knowing the money factor, I can't extrapolate a selling price... but, the Bay Area example looks like they may only be adding a few hundred $ profit over the nationally advertised deal..

    You could ask Car_man over in the Audi A4: Lease Questions board... He will surely know the money factors..

    OK, will do.

    Actually, looks like the national deal is for a model without the Premium Package whereas the ones in the Bay Area include the PP. The national deal has $944 at least inception instead of $1999 drive off for the Bay Area. Does the $575 acquisition fee seem copacetic?

    So these looks strictly based on MSRP selling price.

    Carsdirect is about $1000-1100 below that $34910 MSRP while Edmunds TMV is only about $650. Either way, should not have to pay MSRP.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,923
    Without knowing the money factor, there is really no way to know what the selling prices are....

    Audis have a fairly narrow margin between invoice and MSRP... If I had to guess, I'd say the selling prices are $500-$800 under MSRP, in the given examples...

    Actually, those are really low numbers for 24 month leases... Obviously, the 76% residual is very strong... I'm thinking that the money factor has to be fairly low as well, or they could never get that low of a monthly payment...

    Well I just entered a query at the bayareaudidealers.com site. Guess they will send it to several dealers.

    Specifically asked for the MF, selling price and the residual they were using. My experience is dealers don't want to give out those details over email. Maybe it's just the dealers in this area but we'll see.
  • mcmuneymcmuney Posts: 64
    Submit your request on carsdirect.com and they'll find the car for you and negotiate the price for you. I just purchased mine last month through CD at invoice price MSRP $43,970 (nicely equipped). CD did all the dirty work.
  • edwardsfedwardsf Posts: 187
    I could not quite understand your post (it looked like there was a typo). You went through CD and they got you invoice? Did you buy or lease. If you get it at invoice, I wonder if that bumps you out of the Audi financing deal (with the attactive MF and Residual)..

    Hi,
    I was wondering if you could tell me if this is a good deal please. On lease,an Audi A4 2006,$35,485,Quatrro,Tiptronic 6 Spd, Metallic Dolphin gray,Leather,Sunroof, and Nav. They said they could order but could take upto 90 days. The destination charge is $750? On a 2yr lease,12,000 miles per year,money factor 1.37? $1,742 due at signing. The monthly payment is $430 including tax. From reading your post about the deal you was looking into,which sounds good to me?,i was $30,798 with Premium and Sports package,($4,275). Did you decide to go with that offer? I live in Miami where there are only 3 Audi dealers. Your help would be really appreciated.

    .
  • Wondering what dealerships and dealers you had a good experience with in shopping around Chicago area. I'm in the market for an A4 Avant and your ecperience would save me a lot of work.

    Thanks.

    You can't order the car the way you described. Navigation must have the technology and premium packages together. Go to audi.usa and build your car, and you'll see. So you're looking closer to 40 grand for tippy quattro with those options.

    And Dolphin Grey is a sold order only color, so you'll have to wait the 10-12 week order time to get it from the factory.
  • aka5aka5 Posts: 24
    Thanks. But i wonder why thes salesman is telling me ican. I wonderwaht he's upto. Maybe i shoiuld get it in writting from the sales manager if decide to buy off them before i plce the order? :(
  • rjlaerorjlaero Posts: 659
    It's not unheard of that sales people say something wrong. It's not that he's trying to intentionally mislead you and it's probably an honest mistake.

    You can look at the option guides and think you can pick things "ala carte", but there are required options you must select if you want navigation.
  • aka5aka5 Posts: 24
    I spoke with the salesman again. He's still saying he can because they're the biggest Audi dealer in the country. (Champion Audi) I'm wondering if there's some sort of sales competition going on that he wants to win by showing orders on wait or something. I'm just looking out for myself because i don't want to wait for no reason so that they can sell me something else at the last minute.
  • Just bought a 2005.5 2.0T quattro, auto, for $5000 off MSRP. Dealer in Austin was running an ad for these and I made a copy of ad brought it to Albuquerque dealer and he said he would match.
  • wco81wco81 Posts: 495
    What options were on the car?

    What was the original MSRP including destination and metallic paint (if applicable)?
  • aka5aka5 Posts: 24
    Wow! I reckon you did well there! :shades:
  • premium package, cold weather package,audio package, wood, moro blue paint, 17" alloy wheels,

    $36,570 MSRP

    I love the car, been wanting one for years but it was too pricey and until 2.0 a little underpowered. Time to sell the Acura RSX

    Hi all... am in negotiations for a 2006 Audi A4 3.2 automatic with Tiptronics.

    Can people help as far as the markup and any extra fees etc. My salesman told me Audi has 7% markup, no holdback, no secret rebates, no factory to dealer incentives, nothing, no fluff. We are working off invoice... is this sound plausible and what is a fair profit price (percentage or fixed amount)?? To give you the whole picture options I included are: sunroof package, audi package w/XM, Premium package, Technology package, Nav, Tire Pressure and Retractable Washers with Dolphin Gray.
  • I'm also in negotiation on the identical configuration as yours, except I added rear power blind. I'm looking to lease and expect my first bids tomorrow. Have 3 Audi dealers vying for it. I'll let you know what pricing I get (in NC).
  • I picked up my A4 about two months ago. The car was a factory order, all verbal... no money down. It was configured with the two liter / manual trans / sports suspension / tech package / prem package / tire pressure and maybe some stuff that I've forgotten :). The verbal agreement was $1000 over invoice. While some folks have gotten down to about $600 over invoice, getting the absolutely lowest price was not a priority for me. I did trade my '02 A4 in and they gave me exactly what I expected on trade. And I expect that's where they got their rent money.

    BTW, the car has been fantastic. While I'm not much on the new look, this A4 certainly brings home the bacon. Recently did the APR 91 octane upgrade and it's all good.

    What exactly is an APR 91 octane upgrade? Waiting on my 2006 3.2. Should be in by the end of
    November. Thanks, J
