    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
