    I have the Amaretto with Oyster Grey - very rich interior, not too orange - remember you sit in the car - looking thru the windows (tinted) at first appeared oranger but not when you sit in the car - the best color combo (imho) of all the available interiors for the 2005 A6 - I absolutely love this car - voice recognition is great, keyless a must - NAV - bluetooth with Cellular ONE. motorola v551 (no problems in chiagoland)

    I spoke to a dealer today. I have one months payment left on my 02' A6 3.0
    My payment is $499 + tax. I am over by about 2500 miles now with a month and a half to go on lease @ .20c/mile (roughly $500 dollars right not). The dealer offered to buy my car which means the overage mile charge goes away, my last payment of $499 goes away and I can get into a new A6 3.2 w/ the following options:

    Black Car w/ Amaretto Interior
    Premium Pkg
    Luxury Pkg
    Convenience Group
    18" wheels (not sport pkg but only wheels)
    Cold Weather Pkg (which I don't care about in Florida)
    Keyless Start (I think it's called Smart Key)

    Basically, the car lists for $50,900

    He told me come up with $1500 including everything at start (1rst payment, tax, etc). It is a 36 month lease so 35 remaining payments of $640 + tax. This includes 15K miles a year. But he told me it's a purchase option deal. It's not a lease...I've never heard of this type of deal before but he told me there would be not dispositon at lease end; also, because I'm actually trading my car in, there would be a huge discount on tax for new vehicle. I could buy the new car after the 36 months are up for like $27K or walk away and lease/purchase is over. Has anybody out there heard of this kind of deal before. I always get scared with anything that smells of a "balloon" payment at the end. Also, I am saving the money up front because of the over miles and last payment. He is basically ending my lease a month early. He told me he's giving me about $4000 dollars off the new car ( I think that includes my $1500 loyalty reduction for being a current Audi lessor). If you have an y information on this type of deal or if this sounds like a good deal let me know ASAP as loyalty runs out in a few days and I might have to act on this sooner than later. Thanks in advance,

    DBW

    Also, if this car lists for about $51,000, would I be able to do the same kind of a deal on an A6 4.2 with little equipment because w/ very little extra equipment, the 4.2 lists for around $51,000...The only thing I really care about is Xenon Headlamps which come standard on 4.2 and the keyless start system. Shouldn't the same price work and is it worth it to get a 4.2 for the same money as a more loaded up 3.2?

    I think I got a great deal:

    2005 A6 3.2 Quattro
    Premium Package
    Convenience Package
    DVD Navigation System
    Advanced Key
    Voice Command
    Sirius Satellite Radio
    Premium Leather (Amaretto)
    Brilliant Black Exterior
    18" Wheels

    List price on car was $51,770

    Leased it for:
    Total due at start including 1st month, tax,tag complete out of pocket of $1,500
    36 month lease w/ an allowance of 15K miles annually
    35 remaining payments of $625 + tax

    Picking the car up tomorrow...YEAH

    Bondguy,

    I missed it, what was your OTD price? You mentioned MSRP, but didn't tell the total you negotiated...

    Congrats on the car, I'm sure you're going to love it.
  • bondguy1bondguy1 Posts: 228
    The price I leased the car at was $48,001. Almost a four thousand dollar savings off of list. I wasn' t sure about getting Brilliant Black outside or the really dark blue color (both with Amaretto inside) but I went with the Black. This deal I got was better than three other dealers quoted me on a much less equipped car. Cars without Satellite Radio, Navigation and no voice command and standard 17" wheels were quoted to me with same money due at start of $650+tax.
  • liferulesliferules Posts: 531
    Sounds like a really good deal. Congrats! The black looks really nice, especially in the sun.

    Sounds good to me. I was one of the earlier buyers/leasers and I had a pretty good deal. Yours is even a little sweeter. I had 2 months rebated on my previous Audi lease, which helped sweeten the pot.

    It looks likes Audi Financial moved around the resids and money factor. Do you know what they are?
  • Audi is apparently now offering much better terms - but doing it quietly. I haven't seen any ads for special lease rates, but I am seeing new A6s everywhere around here (NJ-NYC). I saw 3 this morning, all with the dealer temporary plates, within 1/2 mile.
    Your deal sounds excellent - that included the $1,500 owner loyalty?
  • bondguy1bondguy1 Posts: 228
    Yes. That did include the loyalty. I had a deal for a car with similar equipment from a closer dealer to my house where I leased my current 02 A6 from but it had the full sports package, no voice command, no navigation and no sirius satellite radio. He wanted w/ $1,500 at start 619/month. I have one $499 payment left on my current car but I am over miles by 2500 @ 20cents/mile. I told him to eat the mileage charge and I would cover the last payment. He said he was already at a zero deal (I feel sooooo sorry that car dealers aren't making any money.heh,heh,heh). I told him I would look to do business elsewhere. He told me nobody's going to do that deal. Well, apparently, he was wrong. They offered me w/ $1,500 at start $604/month or with $1,000 at start, $619. I figured this $500 would cover my miles. Then he told me about the car I am getting for only $20 more a month on lease with a retail list price of $2,200 more car. Sounded good to me. And, all this was done on the telephone...never been to that dealership before. I thing with Infinity and Lexus and some other newer models coming out, Audi will have to get more competitive. Can't wait to drive this new bad boy...wish it were the 4.2 but maybe next lease!!!

    This car is great. I only took it on a short test drive and never really opened it up. I picked mine up yesterday. First of all, the Amaretto interior is really rich looking. Paired w/ the black exterior it's a great combination. Even the sound of the exhaust when you step on the gas is different than my 02' Audi 3.0. Maybe it's the dual exaust. I never drove the 4.2 but it must be an incredible drive. I also never had quattro on my last car and this one corners like it's on rails. What a car!!!

    I am about to lease a 2005 A6 3.2 and have a few dealerships that have the car I want (Black with Amaretto) with very similar options. The only thing I am concerned about is the wheels, one has the 17 inch all season and the other has the 18 inch all season. The dealer with the 17 inch wheels is telling me they are better in slippery conditions (snow, ice, rain, etc...). Is there any truth to this? Is there a different feel to the car with the different size wheels? Thanks...
  • bondguy1bondguy1 Posts: 228
    I got the same color and car you are looking at as you'll see in my previous posts. I got the 18" wheels. They look absolutely great on the car. The only downside to 18" over 17" is when it comes time to replace them they are a lot more money. I noticed in some areas, the 3.2's w/ 18" wheels come with Continental tires. Mine came with Michelin Pilots (much better tread). The 18" wheels will ride a little rougher though.
  • I also think I got a great deal today. The money factor is extremely low right now at .00125 for the 3.2 which equates to about 2.9% interest. (I think BMW also has about the same rate right now on some of their 5 series) They are not advertising this indeed because I was actually allowed to sit behind the managers desk and watched him enter the numbers into his little computer and even he was amazed at the way the numbers were crunching out. Here was my deal:

    2005 A6 3.2 Quattro
    Premium Package
    Sport Package
    Convenience Package
    DVD Navigation System
    Voice Command
    Sirius Satellite Radio
    Glacier White
    With Beige Interior

    List price on car was $50,270

    Total due at start including 1st month, tax,complete out of pocket of $3,000 which includes Arizonas' extremely high tags (which are about $800 of that total down) and I am not eligible for the $1500 loyalty program (if it was available) since I am a first time Audi buyer.
    36 month lease w/ an allowance of 15K miles annually
    35 remaining payments of $610 + tax

    These guys were first rate with absolutely NO pressure because they know they have a great product which can sell itself.

    Time to look at one of these if you want a world class car and world class lease.
  • bondguy1bondguy1 Posts: 228
    Sounds like a great deal. You're car is almost identical to mine. The only thing other than my color is I have Premium Leather and I have advanced key feature. I also didn't get sport package but just the 18" wheels. I don't know what money factor they used for rate but mine listed at $51,770 (leased it at $48,001). I think that's where the wheeling and dealing comes into play, with the cap cost of car or " how much discount they give you". This is my second Audi and yes, you probably will get another one for your next lease. They are great cars and you picked a great year to get one. Best of luck. Enjoy you new wheels.

    any idea on what a 4.2 goes for on lease? How do you like your 4.2?

    I got an invitation today from a local audi dealer that is offering employee pricing to present and future customers. This sounds to good to be true. Event dates are friday and saturday. Mmm?
  • Good Morning,

    First time post, but avid reader. Been talking to a local dealer about leasing his demo A6 with about 2500 miles on the vehicle.
    Here are the terms:
    36 mos. with 12k per year @ $495.00 plus tax. This includes them buyng my A4 for $16,500 with about $10,000 owiing and the remaining monies go towards the car.
    Here is what the A6 has: it is silver with Ebony, Premium, Nav, Conv, 17”, and Cold pkg.
    Being told that getting the car at $1000.00 below invoice and $1,500.00 loyalty being applied to the lease.
    I know they say put as little down as possible, but need to keep payments as close to $500.00 as possible.

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Sounds to me like they are trying to capitalize on the popularity of the General Motors offer and I don't think they have an employee price structure set up. Also, is it true that there is no holdback on an Audi? If so, and I buy at what Edmunds calls "invoice price", then is the only money they are making on me through the back end in finance? They have to make other money somewhere, don't they?
