    My car is automatic, quattro, sedan with metallic paint (Deep Sea Blue).
    I paid $43,695. CDN before taxes including the $100.air conditionning federal tax, preparation and transportation.

    You're right, I didn't use Audi financing.

    A broker at Transdeal.ca gave me the "invoice" pricing for the 2009 Audi auto quattro A4 sedan w/ Premium package, and some options. (Quotes are 'cuz I haven't independently verified w/ CCC, APA, etc.)
    car only 41 346
    Add profit 1 650

    freight 800
    admin 295

    I probably could have pushed the price $200-300 lower but didn't want to take a risk since the 2009 inventory is getting thin. So I got an automatic Premium Plus 2.0T Quattro with metallic paint (Silver). No other options besides Premium Plus.

    $34,800
    -$1,000 (Conquest)
    -$1,877 (Two payments by Audi)
    -----------
    $31,923

    I only calculated the principle for the two payments by Audi, if you included the interest for two months as well it would be a bit more. I negotiated the price to include the dealer doc fee which would have been over $200 normally. Price does not include TTL, just the car and the doc fee. I'm in New England if anyone cares.

    For the 2.0T, quatro, automatic A4 premium plus with all weather floor mats, exhaust tips and wheel locks. The MSRP on this is $38,785 and Edmunds has a TMV price of $36,578.

    What can I really expect to pay for this.

    TIA for any help you can give me. I'm really awful at negotiating and I need to know what to expect!!!

    See what the invoice price on Edmunds is and try to get invoice-$1500. Potential rebates not included in that number.

    I paid $37000 for a 2.0T Quattro automatic A4 with Prestige Option, metallic paint, exhaust tips, wood trim, and Audi care.

    So, it's now Friday and I have the weekend to decide on this.

    I was offered the following deal:

    A4 Quattro Premium
    Quartz Gray
    Bluetooth
    Homelink
    iPod interface
    Rear/side air bags
    NO heated seats

    My cost $470/month, $400 out-of-pocket. 12,000 miles/year for 36 months.

    I'm not a big car shopper and wanted to know how I did? I think the sticker was $35,750 which was the highest priced Premiums they had on the lot.

    I am wondering whether you are aware that the A4 with premium option does not come with the R8 inspired LED Daytime Running Light. (You might want to take that into consideration.)
  • emattsematts Posts: 6
    Yes. I'm aware the LEDs don't come with Premium. However, I'll never see them. And the dealer wasn't making any deals on Premium Plus.
  • mattydmattyd Posts: 21
    True. On Canadian ones it's standard, while on US ones it isn't (it's an option or you move up to the Premium Plus).

    I am getting an A4 Quattro Prestige with Nav for $39,900 (has sunshades on ~ $500). I have done quite a bit of negotiating before they could come down to this price. Do you think it's a good deal? This is before the audi payments for 2 months.

    Can you guys let me know soon? The dealer is after me to close the deal. Unfortunately I hadn't seen this forum earlier, otherwise I would have asked questions during my negotiations :).

    Is this a good deal? I can't tell b/c it's hard to know based on camparing numbers

    Having trouble understanding the dealer's quote

    35,320 is cap cost on Premium Plus quattro A4 2.0T with silver exterior, black interior, standard metal interior trim (no wood) - that is 10K miles per year with a residual of 19530. The cap cost includes 500 off via Conquest and subtracting the first month payment. The money factor is 0.00071. This makes for a total monthly payment of 503, which is 488 + 39 + 64 (base + lease fee + tax). I give 1052 down for license and title.

    I thought the tax is usually paid up front? Why are they including it in each payment.

    Thanks,
    Marshal

    MSRP 38,725 included Prem Plus, Nav and wood optiions. I went through UBS and final price was $36,764. The internet sales price would have been around $37,500. Limited 2009 inventories in DC, MD No. Va area. I have owned Buick, Camry, Avalon and Volvo s80.. hands down this 2009 Audi A4 is the best car I have ever owned. No detail was overlooked and I especially love the 30 mpg hwy have gone as high as 32 mpg.

    Hi,

    Is there a limit on the amount that Audi will pay for the 2 payments? If I am buying a car with a finance for 2 years, will they pay for the 2 months with no limit on the payment amount.

    thanks,

    Congrats on your new Audi! I am trying to close a deal by the end of this month.

    Do you know if I can take a 2 year loan and make Audi eat up larger payments for 2months? Is there any limit on the amount they will pay? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I am not sure whether there is any limit. But I remembered my dealer told me that I could not pay out the car in 14 months. Otherwise, Audi Financial Services will take away the 2 payments AFS made.
  • As far as I know, the answer is "no" on the amount but "yes" on the length of the term. When I closed the deal, the dealer wrote in the financing docs (which are about as long as your arm), that AFS would pay the first two payments and that I (the customer) would only need to make 34 payments over the life of the loan.

    The dealer said that the 2 payment incentive was only good for loans of 36 months or more which makes sense. They obviously want to limit the incentive somehow and this is one way to do it. I don't think you can get them to go down to 24 months but give it a shot.

    To max the value of the 2 free payments, I shortened the length of the term to the min they would allow which was 36 months and didn't even put down a penny downpayment. They said that if I paid the loan off after 12 payments, that AFS could go after the dealer for the "lost" two payments. In CA, I don't think they can go after the customer for these unless it is explicitly stated in the loan docs. I still have to get my first payment in the mail (dealer said that it should show an automatic credit for the next two months and my first true payment wouldn't be till Sept) and the value of both payments should be around $2,400 in total.

    Hope this helps. You should get clarity on this in case they have changed it due to people like me. Also, make sure something is amended in the loan docs and clearly states that AFS pays the first two payments so you have proof that the deal was struck.

    Good luck.

    My finance document clearly states the following:

    "Prepayment. If you pay off all your debt early, you will not have to pay a penalty."

    I wasn't told by the dealer either that I could not pay off the balance earlier. Not that I asked, but in the end only the signed contract counts.

    Thank you for all the information. I will try to find out. I am also planning to not put a down payment.
