  • Here you go Jeremy.

    Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A4 Premium Plus Sedan with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00112 and 52%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00132 and 50%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42 month lease are .00132 and 48%.

    If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, this car's residual values would be 2% higher.

    Its 10,000 mile per year resids are 3% higher.

  • Hi swiss79. $500 over dealer invoice is a very good deal for a 2011 A4. The money factor that you were quoted looks good as well. If you like the car, I personally don't see any reason not to go for it.

  • Hi,

    I am leasing a 2008 A4 Sedan 2.0T Quattro MT6, which ends on 01/02/2011. I took the lease over from someone else after he had it for 19 months, and really love the car. No problems, no issues. I am wondering if you think buying it at the end of the lease is a good idea financially. Here are the particulars:

    Stats: Brilliant Red, Black Leather, Base MSRP $31,000
    Options: S-Line Pkg ($2,000), Audio Pkg ($1,000), Titanium Pkg ($500), Bluetooth ($500), Heated Seats ($450), Dest. ($775)

    Total MSRP $36,225.

    The negotiated lease price was $34,417 plus $590 for Audi Care Pkg. and $195 Etch (unreal, but what can you do?), with a residual of $21,010. Lease term is 36 months, 30,000 miles total. It currently has about 27,500 on it. Payments are $444.60 per month.

    When I took the lease over I didn't give the guy anything down - just took over the payments. Plus, he paid the first month I had it for me. So I will have driven it for 17 months, but paid for 16.

    If I pay it off this week, I'll owe Audi Financial $21,010 plus the two remaining payments plus sales tax. Because I am buying it and paying it off two months early, they will credit me $121. I will also avoid the $350 turn in fee.

    Thanks for your help. Love these forums.

    Hi Car_man,

    Can you tell me what the numbers are for:

    '11 A4 Avant Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year at 36 months

    Thanks!
  • Audi (VW Credit) is the first leasing company to engage in this despicable behavior that i've dealt with.

    At lease end, if your residual is attractive and you decide to sell the car to a dealer, don't expect them to sell it at the residual value.

    VW Credit will try to sell it to the dealer at something like private party sale which is likely well above your residual. (i.e. residual mght be 23k and they will ask the dealer to pay $28k for the car.) It's the most ridiculous thing.

    I should comment that i was dealing with non-audi dealers. i dont' know if they would try to screw their own dealers out of purchasing the car.

    They will only honor their residual if the lesee buys the car themselves. They will not honor it if you trade the car in at the end of the lease.

    What a Joke. Last time I ever deal with Audi and their finance company. You want to be a Luxury brand, then act like one. Not some cheap dishonest used car dealership.

    I should mention, to be fair, that this was experienced when trying to trade the car in at non-audi dealerships. I have not idea if they would try to screw their own dealers out of buying out your lease.

    I just "Traded In" my 2008 Audi Lease to an Audi Dealer. Audi Financial did sell the Car to the dealer for the Residual which was much lower than the trade in value. My 2008 had 21,956 miles and was in "Excellent" clean condition. The Resdiual was $ 21,677 they gave me$ 23, 500 and now they have it on the lot for $27,456.

    Maybe the non Audi dealership thing is the issue.
  • Hi Car Man -

    I have been quoted the following for the above car. Dealer indicated the lease figures include a $1750 discount/lease loyalty, the best deal they can make to repeat customers. However, I would typically expect to negotiate the price of the vehicle below MSRP first, THEN have any available incentives applied? Please advise regarding your opinion of the terms as proposed. Thank you in advance!!

    MSRP $40690
    2011 Audi A4 Avant Auto Quattro $35940
    Quartz Gray/Black
    Metallic Paint $475
    Premium Plus Package $3400
    Destination charge $875
    Total MSRP $40690

    Lease numbers;

    0 down 36mo./10k miles/including monthly sales tax $646.62
    1000 down 36mo./10k miles/including monthly sales tax $614.44
    3000 down 36mo./10k miles/including monthly sales tax $553.99
    5000 down 36mo./10k miles/including monthly sales tax $493.88

  • Hi gchristo. You definitely should be able to negotiate a dealer discount on top of any available owner loyalty cash. The loyalty cash is being completely paid for by Audi. The car that you described probably has a spread of around $2,750 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. If I was in the market for one right now, I personally would shoot for a $2,000 or so dealer discount on top of the loyalty cash and see what happens.

  • Thanks for the direction Car Man. The actual spread on that vehicle was $2,587. I went in on the last day of the month and got a dealer contribution of $1500 on top of loyalty cash ($1,250) for a net cap cost of $38,648.22 and a res value of $22,786.40. MF of .00164 for a mo pmnt of $526 (with complimentary winter mats and window tinting). I am in snow country and they only have four 2011's on the lot, so I think I did okay?
  • Hi Car Man,

    I'm looking to lease the following:

    2011 Audi A4 Quattro Premium Plus Package (automatic), 12,000 or 15,000 miles.

    What is the November money factor and residual value for both 36 and 42 months?

    Also, is Audi Care worth the $790 upcharge?

    Please advise -
    Thanks - glad to have found an unbiased resource to help me with my upcoming transaction!

  • Hi tnoll001. Here's the information that you're looking for. Audi Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A4 Sedan Premium Plus with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00091 and 51%, respectively. I believe that the numbers for an otherwise identical 42 month lease are .00111 and 47%.

    Normally I would advise consumers to pass on the pre-paid maintenance...but Audi Financial Services provides lessees with a 1% boost to their vehicle's residual value when they sign up for Audi Care so that helps offset the cost quite a bit.
