Audi A4 Lease Questions



  • Hi skykeller. This is Audi's official advertised lease payment for the A4. Generally speaking, most manufacturers' official advertised lease payments are pretty good deals...but they leave a little meat on the bone so to speak. Savvy consumers who know what they are doing and live in areas that have a decent level of competition are usually able to negotiate lower selling prices on vehicles than the ones that were used to calculate their official advertised payments.

  • Hi Car_man and everyone,

    My first Audi, trying to get a nice deal. A4 premium + bluetooth and audi music interface

    Two dealers gave me almost same quote over the phone:

    MSRP: $33275
    SP: $31010
    MF: dealer did not tell me, I used 0.00045
    Drive off: $1612.91 (include all fees and first month payment)
    Month pay: $398 (8.75% tax included)
    term: 12,000/y, 36 months

    I do not under stand how they got the number out. However, I need to know if this is a good deal or not.

    Appreciate any advise. Thanks!

    An excellent lease payment is below 1% of the msrp before taxes and fees. You would be shooting for $332 or less. A bit above the 1% rule is still good. Just be sure the fees are fair. Audi has a $675 bank fee but check everything else. Your deal looks decent -- might ask for the audicare thrown in to close the deal. Never hurts to ask. Also raises your residual a bit I think.

    This sounds like a decent offer. What city/dealer did you get it from? I agree you can ask to have them add the free service to close the deal. That will improve the residual value 1 or 2% and bring down the cost of the lease. You might also contact a dealer a little farther alway to get a better price as they would have to offer you a better price to make you travel a little farther. You can always have the car serviced at any Audi dealer.

    Good luck

    I like this deal, you look like in NY, could you give me these guys if it's not a secret.

    Thank you
  • I got this quote from los angeles. Got the quote on riverside dealer, CA. However, they do not have the color I like. Another dealer in downtown is going to match this offer, just confirmed. I will go to several dealers tomorrow to get a best price then make the deal.

    Thank you guys!
  • Thank you for the advice. I will try $332+8.75% Tax on tomorrow.

    Drive off include all fees and first month payment, total is 1600.

    I will ask for the audicare also.

    Will update when I come back

    The less than 1% rule may not be possible due to mf and rv numbers but it gives you a reference point to evaluate the deal. Good luck.
  • That's a good rule of thumb (and, one I use myself)..

    But, in the current leasing environment, almost impossible to find... :(

    The honda accord ex-l is available for 270 with an msrp of 27k. Not much else. Nice car though.
  • Yeah... just from perusing the other leasing threads, the Honda Insight has a good program, though I haven't worked up a payment..

    Dang it, now I'm off topic..

    Back to Audi... sorry

    You should be sorry for drifting off topic in an edmunds forum since it happens so infrequently. Apology accepted Audi-ose for now.
  • Hi, I am looking to lease a A4 Prestige with Sports Package in the SOCAL area,

    Im just wondering what you guys paid for , and whats a good deal if I do a 5k downpayment?
  • Final price:

    MSRP: 33725, Audi A4 premium white/black, bluetooth, ipod interface, garage opener

    SP: 30055, we leased the car for 42 months

    Lease price: Down pay: 0, drive off: $1500, include DMV title plate and other fees, include first month payment. Monthly payment: $390 (8.75% tax included). Audi care included, 1000mile/month

    The deal is not as good as we believed, however, this is the only white one in our price range left in our area. Another dealer got 2 white/black instock, but it was a 100 mile drive. And that dealer cannot beat the price over the phone, so we just take this one.

    Dealer: west covina, CA

    For los angeles, do not recommend downtown LA audi. Dealers are not so nice, and one dealer just said: this is audi, not VW, 0 down is impossible. And the dealer treated me as an idiot (asked me to pay all the tax in the drive off, total $4000 drive off, 36 months, $380 before tax, then he put the tax in the monthly payment again......)

    Pasadena audi is OK, but do not talk to the guy whose name is: Sammy (I do not know if I spelled it right). Very rude over the phone, yelled at me then hung up my phone. But other dealers in pasadena are nice, very helpful, but they did not have a white color, but they are good.

    Thank you for all your help!

    I had a good experience with Pacific Audi in Torrance. Nathan Loyd the Fleet Manager took care of me.

  • Hi all.
    I got a quote yesterday from a local (northern NJ) dealer for a 42 mo / 10k lease.
    Please let me know if it's a decent one.
    $400/ month. $0 down, fees/1st month in the payment, $280 cost of registration up front.
    The car is 2010 A4 Q Auto Premium non-metallic (black). MSRP's around $35400.
    The deal's good till the end of Feb.
    Does that sound like a good deal or should I be able to do a little better ?
  • rxkerxke Posts: 148

    It is hard to know if this is a good deal. In order to evaluate it you need to know the residual value and money factor they are using and how many miles per year. Based on what people are saying in this forum the money factor for 39 months is around .00070 and the residual value of 53% for an A4 premium. A lease for 42 months will change the residual value and maybe the money factor. If you can have the dealer throw in the maintenance it increases the residual value and decreases the cost of the lease. Let me know how you make out as I am also looking into getting an A4 probably in March. I live in NY.

    Good luck.
