    Elliot,

    Dealers and manufacturers have another profit center when they get to act as the leasing company; in your case $250 month. Pay cash and forget about it.

    I agree, that seems pretty high... you can get a more expensive car to lease for that price... most people on the forums were commenting on getting lease monthly rates in the $700-mid 800's...

    Is this a 4.2 or 3.2?

    I am on my way to another dealership to pick up the A6 with the usual options 36 months for $828/mo.....

    This is a far cry from $954. By the way the $954 dealership called me 3 times today and I told him the price was off according to my calculations (yes, I can figure a lease by hand) and the $954 became $902 due to an input error!!!!!!!!!!!

    He also said that he does not have the component parts of the deal only the Cap Cost and the payment....come on...I was born at night but not last night.

    Elliot,

    Congrats on getting the new car. You'll love it!

    I agree with changing dealerships, if they start playing games, just walk...

    I can honestly say that I had a wonderful experience at Cavender Audi in San Antonio today.

    We handled everything on the telephone. He had the car I wanted with the right color and options and the Salesperson, Nathan Spencer got it done without ANY runaround whatsoever.

    I walked into the dealership and they had the car prepped, and the Sales Manager and General Manager came out to make sure that everything was OK.

    I went into finance and the paperwork was done...exactly as discussed on the phone with NO upsell....I was in finance for about 5 minutes.....the way it should be.

    The car came in $126/mo less than what I wrote above and it was fair for the dealership and fair for me.

    When we spoke on the telephone before I drove 1 hour down to San Antonio, I went over everything with Nathan and I made sure he knew we were talking about 15k miles a year. They had figured it at 12k and said immediately that the contract would be changed to 15k without any adjustment.

    Now the kicker. They said don't worry about your Mercedes that they would drop it off that afternoon at the MB dealer. All I needed to do was stop in and sign an Odometer statement. They had called over to the MB dealership and I was treated royally by one of the managers and in and out in no time.

    This is what a car buying/leasing experience should be. I have leased since 1974 and I can figure the lease by hand.....this was the best experience I have had at a dealership.

    Regards

    Elliot

    Very nice. I can't say my purchase was that painless...particularly the F&I guy was ridiculous. Don't you wish every auto transaction was as smooth as yours?

    Congrats again. Have fun with the great weather we're having in TX this weekend.
  • After a month of shopping around I finally took the dive and purchased a 2004 A6 2.7T S-Line at the weekend. Purchased from Continental Audi in Naperville, IL. Very happy with both the car and the manner in which I was treated at the dealership.

    Car is certified through 2010 and is very clean.

    If anybody is interested in price details, contact me directly.

    Just traded in my tired ex-sales vehicle (97 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 142k mi) for a 2001 Audi A6 4.2. Vehicle has sports and cold weather packages and is in excellent condition. My local mechanic gave it a clean bill of health. Concern is the mileage (78k mi). Lots of horror stories on this site + local dealer is warning me about the timing belt. Anyone have advice on 80k checkup and replacement of timing belt? Should I spend the money now for "preventative" maintenance? Quotes are running $800 to $2000. Thanks.

    Replace the timing belt now, along with water pump, tensioners, etc.

    Thanks for the advice. Couple follow-on questions if I may:
    1. Any reason I shouldn't use my local mechanic (trustworthy and fair) vs the dealer?
    2. Any ballpark pricing on what I should expect for the service?

    BTW, I paid $17k for the vehicle in SF area. Comps that I could find in the area suggest this was a fair price. Anyone have data that would suggest otherwise?
  • I was quoted MSRP of $51,900 with EXACTLY what features I wanted.

    In February the lease rates were so good that I was quoted $6000 down, $500 a month including tax, first month, etc, etc. to drive off of the lot with it. I regret not taking it then. They haven't been able to come close to that since.

    Anyone know any special A6 promotions coming soon?

    They are blowing out the 07s before the 08s arrive. Nice job.

    Great deal. Can you tell me where you you got it?

    Thanks

    I just got a quote of $10000 off MSRP on leftover 07's A6's from The Collection here in Miami. Just got a car there for my daughter earlier, this is really tempting.

    I'm in Florida, I would be interested in knowing the sales persons name, I am in the markey for an a6

    Thanks
  • Just got 7800 off list on a black a6 S line 3.2 quattro navi
    in Charleston SC
    Paid 47600

    dealer also had a Fwd 3.2 in white for 39,900 (4400 off)

    Atlanta audi dealers showing 10K off some 2007 new a6s on ebay, but not the ones I wanted
  • Just purchased, after much hand wringing, internet searching and car salesman time wasting, a CPO A6. The car I ended up buying was clearly the best deal I saw during my search using mostly web based sources; autotrader, cars.com etc. Here it is: 2006 A6 S-line. 5600 miles. Nav/tech package, black with ebony interior for $38,500. More car than I hoped to get. Could have gotten into one for a few grand less but not even close to those features. In Chicago at Fletcher Jones.
