  • Hi jobualli. Audi's current lease program is only scheduled to run through September 30th, so at this point there is no way to know what its October program will be like.

    Unless you are very particular about your cars, generally speaking it is better to purchase something that is in dealer inventory than to order. I say this because dealers are usually more interested in moving something that they physically have in stock that they are already paying floorplan interest on and that they can finalize a deal on immediately than order a vehicle and have the deal potentially fall apart.

  • Car_man, thank you and I am now driving my new 2010 A4. It is a beautiful car and greatly appreciate your reply. Sales and finance reps were nothing but professional, did not try and sell me any addons and were top notch all the way. If my experience with the car holds for the term of the lease I may end up buying it out. Again, thanks.

  • You're very welcome, boas13. Thanks for stopping back to let us all know how everything turned out. I'm glad to hear that you had such a pleasant dealer experience. If you want, you can tell everyone about it in even greater detail over in the Dealer Ratings & Reviews section of this site.

  • Hi mikekx. The easiest way for me to evaluate this deal would be for me to take a look at this car's selling price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without this number, it is difficult to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given. Find out how much the dealer is charging you for this car and let us know. I'm sure that either myself or another helpful community member will gladly tell you what they think,

    For now I can tell you that the money factor that you were quoted on this car is slightly high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A4 2.0 Sedan FWD is only .00069. Make sure that the dealer uses that factor to calculate your car's monthly payment.

    Hi carman, can you tell me the residual for this car. Thanks
  • gpb59gpb59 Posts: 69
    Carman, To clarify, 2010 audi FWD with 12k per year and 36 mos. I'm in nevada (money factor and residual). Should the money factor be the same for all states? My dealer told me .00106.
  • Carman,
    me again, our september purchase was delayed so looking for october numbers now:
    can you post MF and residual for:
    2010 Avant Premium 36 months/15K
    and
    2010 Sedan Premium Quattro 36 months/15K
    Greatly appreciated!!!
  • Guys,

    Please let me know you think of this lease deal:

    2010 Audi A4, CVT Front-Wheel Drive, Premium Plus Trim Line, Sport Package, No Navigation, 12k/year, 42months, Quartz Metal Grey

    MSRP: $37,750
    $525 (including tax)/month
    $700 Drive Off (including first month payment)
    Residual Value: $17,365
  • spano1spano1 Posts: 13
    I just leased same car but with Navigation and brilliant black paint for $535 plus drive offs (includes tax - high california). This also included Audi Care..... You might be able to better!
  • Can you help me understand the differences between Premier Purchase and Lease? I'm being led towards a Premier Purchase on the notion that it is subject to less fees and more flexible, but the rates involved are slightly higher (they work out to 3.30% on a 36 month plan on a FWD and 3.93% on a 36 month plan on a AWD)

    Seems guys on here are not paying these upfront fees (acquisition, etc)?

    Hi, I received the following quote on a 2010 Automatic A4 Sedan w/ PP pkg, Metallic paint & Wood trim:

    36 month w/ 2K down for $478/month + tax
    Money Factor is 0.00124 with security deposit waived
    10K miles
    residual value is 54%
    Quoted price is $35861 + tax & license

    Is this a good deal? Pls help!!! Thanks.
  • spano1spano1 Posts: 13
    I am not a pro but it seems high... Here's the deal I got 2 weeks ago...
    2010 A4 2.0 FWD - Premium Plus, Navigation, & 18" Sport package. I have since received a few return calls and probably could have leased at approx. $520 per month if I was willing to hold out longer. Extremely happy with the car and love the drive!!

    MSRP = $39775
    Cap Cost (includes Audicare) = $36769
    MF = 0.00103
    Monthly = $487.47
    9.75 Tax - hate california right now
    Term = 42 months
    TOTAL = $535 / month

    Drive-offs only money down (approx. numbers as I don't want to go look them up):
    License = $525
    First Month = $535
    Lease Acq = $625
    Security = $525
    TOTAL = 2210.00
  • a4fansa4fans Posts: 7
    Thanks for the feedback. One correction: the quote is actually for a Quattro.
    is it still considered too high? I asked around and this is the lowest deal i received. I'm in Southern California. Thanks.
  • spano1spano1 Posts: 13
    Where are you shopping? I found Pacific Audi, Keyes, & Rusnak to be the most open to negotiating...

    Invoice on your car is approx.$35654 - the price offered is about $200 over.

    Invoice on my car was approx. $1000 under (would have been even more but added Audicare). I also got mine with 12K miles a year and you are at 10K which should get you an even better price.
  • a4fansa4fans Posts: 7
    I shopped around with Rusnak, Mission Viejo, Walters, Circle Audi & Commonwealth; all couldnt match this quote by Hoehn.
    The invoice according to Edmunds is 36097 pre tax based on the configuration which is only a little higher than my quote.
    I guess the problem is there're not many Quattro in stock amongst all dealers in So Cal, and tons of FTs; which naturally warrants more discount and negotiation room.

    Hi, I'm in the process of leasing a 2010 Audi A4 coupe, with the standard Premium package, 3 years, 15k miles/year. This is their first quote, they seem to be a bit evasive of my questions so I thought I'd run it by the forum.

    MSRP $33,750
    Selling price: $32,500
    Residual 52% (wouldn't give me a dollar value, so is that based on the MSRP, the selling price, or after the paydown from my trade in?)
    MF: 2.5% (wouldn't give it to me in the format I'm familiar with, would it be 2.5/2400=0.00104?)
    Monthly payment: $419 before taxes
    Trade in:$3,500

    How do I ensure the math has been done correctly on this vehicle? Where is my negotiating power?

    Thanks!

    A4 Coupe?

    Sedan, convertible, or wagon?

    Makes sense - most of the quattro cars have the prestige package standard in the socal area.... Good luck, keep me posted on the deal you end up finding!
  • Here's the info that you're looking for, r3zon8. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A4 2.0 Sedan Premium FWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00069 and 52%, respectively.

    You never mentioned the exact term, mileage allowance, or trim level that you want for this lease, so I had to make some assumptions. Let me know if you want something different.

    Hello,

    They are not discounting this car enough for you. Their sales are down, the manufacture is giving them alot of money back not shown on the invoice, and they are trying to get as many a4's on the street as possible to compete with Bmw. Based on the numbers given, their is no reason they can not give you $0 Down, $399 a month + tax and even through in the Free Service for the 36 months and allow you 15,000 miles a year. That would be my firm offer and no negotiating. They can even do better then that( I know for a fact), but at least that is a very very very fair deal.
    P.S - Their is no such thing as an Honest Dealership or salesman. Even if they are your friend, their all lairs.
  • hardh1hardh1 Posts: 4
    Thank you for the good advice... have never leased a car and the help is greatly appreciated.

    So assume for a moment I get the deal you are suggesting with $0 down. This sounds like my trade-in has not yet entered into the picture. I really don't want to sell it myself and prefer them to take it off my hands. Let's say it has a wholesale value of $4000. Is it correct to divide that by 36 months and get the car for about $300/month?
  • Hey all,

    Just leased a Audi A4 Quattro 2010 - can you let me know if I got a good deal:

    MSRP: $36325
    Residual: 54%
    Mileage: 10K
    Selling Price: $34000
    Money Factor: .00118
    Monthly Payments (includes tac, registration): 496.37
    Due at signing: Waived Security Deposit; around $900 (includes all fees etc.) including first month
    Thanks.

    Carman,

    Hi, could u pls post the october Audi's current buy rate lease money factor & residual value for 2010 A4 2.0 Sedan Quattro automatic with Premium Plus pkg? Lease term i'm looking for is 36 months, 10k or 12k per year.
    Does a Nav pkg, or down payment impacts the money factor or residual?
    I'm new to lease, should i pay for acquisition and security deposit?
    Pls help. Thanks much in advance.

    PL.
  • Thanks for the additional information, mikekx. The car that you're interested in probably has a spread of around $2,300 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That puts the $1,800 dealer discount that you were quoted at right around $500 over dealer invoice, which is an excellent deal.

    Audi Financial Servces' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2010 A4 Sedan Premium 2WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00069 and 59%. The numbers for an otherwise identical 30 month lease are .00069 and 55%.

  • Hi gpb59. Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A4 Sedan Premium without quattro with 15,000 miles per year are .00069 and 52%.

  • Yes, gpb59, Audi's current lease program for the A4 is national. There's only two possible explanations for why the dealer quoted you a factor that is slightly higher than the one that I mentioned.

    A) You are a non-returning AFS customer who wishes to have their vehicle's security deposit waived. AFS will do so in exchange for a slight increase in the money factor that is used to calculate your payment.

    or

    B) The dealer that you are working with is trying to mark your car's factor up to add additional back-end profit to your deal.
