  • Here you go, moracity. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2007 Audi A4 2.0T Sedan FWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00195 and 72%, respectively. As you can see, your estimates were pretty close ;) .

  • Hi acgutierrez. That is not a dumb question at all. Whether you roll the acquisition fee into your vehicle's capitalized cost or pay it at lease signing is more of a personal preference than anything. The advantage of rolling it into your vehicle's cap cost, which I personally would do, is that you eliminate the risk of losing this money if your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. The down side of doing this is that you have to pay interest on it. This really isn't the worst thing in the world though when one takes the fact that Audi is only charging the equivalent of 4.8% interest on it.

    I believe that the car that you described has a spread of just over $2,600 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. You were quoted a $2,500 discount on it, which I feel is a very good deal. Using the prices that you mentioned in your post, an MSRP of $37,310 and a selling price of $34,806, and Audi Financial Services' current lease program, I estimate that this car's 24 month, 15,000 mile per year, zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $455. I don't know what MA taxes add up to, but if this is close to the pre-tax payment that you were quoted then go for it.

  • Hi jsavaitch. What is this car's full MSRP? This number will help me to form an opinion on this deal that you were quoted by showing me how much of a discount you are being given on it and enabling me to use Audi Financial Services' actual lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be.

  • I completely agree, sangimi. Nearly $3,500 over invoice is too much money to pay for this car. Try stopping my the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar A4s lately: "Audi A4: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". Also, in your post you mentioned an interest rate. Are you getting a balloon note on this car instead of a lease. Audi Financial Services' current 36 month buy rate lease money factor for the 2007 A4 2.0T Sedan with quattro is only .00200 with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing. Make sure that you don't pay any more than that.

  • Hi jryan2003. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the car that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this car's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

  • Hey jryan2003. These cars' lease programs vary depending upon how long you lease them for and what their mileage allowances are. For now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Audi A4 Sedan with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00200 and 58%, respectively. Its numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2006 model are .00312 and 51%. As you can see, Audi is no longer providing lease support on 2006 models. It is providing dealer cash on them though. Specifically, Audi is providing $1,000 dealer cash on 2006 A4 2.0T Sedans. Make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating your car's capitalized cost.

  • Hi dtushing. I believe that the dealer invoice price of the car that you described is right around $30,000. This means that the price you were quoted is around $1,194 over invoice. This isn't bad, but if you are in an area that has a decent level of competition for your business it wouldn't hurt to comparison shop a little bit. You also should stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar cars lately: KarenS, "Audi A4: Prices Paid & Buying Experience" #, 23 May 2001 7:21 am.

    Also, make sure that the dealer that you are working with is using Audi's current buy rate lease money factor to calculate this car's monthly payment. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate money factor for the 2007 A4 Sedan 2.0T with quattro is .00200.

  • Hi mtgs. Yes, Audi Financial Services usually publishes a new lease program every month. Its current program is scheduled to run through October 31st.

  • Hi Car Man,

    I am interested in leasing a 2007 A4 FWD 2.0T Sedan with manual transmission and sunroof package. My plan is 24 month with 10k miles per year OR 36 month with 10k miles per year. I have excellent credit (870 score at Transunion).

    Could you please tell me the current specifics that Audi is offering for this vehicle so I can try to calculate my lease payments?

    Thanks in advance!! :)
  • Got this quote from a local dealer today (I am in South Florida)

    2007 A4 2.0T FWD 6speed Manual with Premium Package, 24 month lease, 10k miles per year

    $1664 at inception

    $359 per month + tax

    What do you think?

    Thanks!!
  • Hi Car Man,

    I am currently looking at a 2007 Audi A4 2.0T Avant Quattro, it comes with the S-Line package, and pretty much fully loaded with MSRP of approx. $43,000. I am looking at leasing either 24mo or 36mo (which ever is the best deal).

    The dealer told me the MF is around 0.002, but the Residual, will change depends on the model of the A4 2.0T. For instance for 24mo/15K, the Base 2.0T starts at 72%, then deduct 2% for choosing the Avant (Wagon) model, and deduct another 2% if equipped with the S-Line package.

    Therefore, the car I mentioned above, will have a MF of 0.002 and a Residual of 68% for a 24mo/15K lease?

    Is this correct? Dealer willing to give me Invoice Price on this, so what should I expect the payment to be? (7.75% tax here)

    Thanks!!
  • Hi Car_man,
    I'm beginning to consider leasing a A4 instead of the A3, since the numbers are really bad for the A3. Could you please provide me with money factor and residual values for the fillowing A4 (36mo./12k and 36mo/15k):

    2007 A4 (sedan) 2.0T 6 speed manual FWD
    s-line package
    black exterior

    thanks in advance.
  • Hi,

    First post, but have neen lurking for a while

    I'm looking to find the residual and money factor for the following car if at all possible...

    $31,090 MSRP

    My target price is in the $29,500 range.

    I'd like to then work out the numbers for a:

    2 year, 12,000/year lease AND a

    Any help at all would be really, really appreciated,

    Thanks!
  • Hi Car Man,

    I wanted to know what you thought of Audi's latest promotion for the Audi A4 2.0T Quattro with TipTronic. Are these types of offers ever negotiable? I'd rather put up a 3 year lease, honestly. Thanks much for your look!

    Here's the offer straight from the website:

    2007 A4 2.0T quattro with Tiptronic transmission
    $379 per month
    24-month lease*
    15000 miles/yr
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Down payment $0
    Refundable security deposit $0
    First Monthly Payment $379
    Acquisition fee $575
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Amount due at lease inception $954

    Disposition fee of $350 due at lease end. Rate based on $33,510.00 MSRP of 2007 A4 2.0 T with a Tiptronic transmission, Premium package, 17-inch wheels, front heated seats and destination charge.

    Excludes taxes, title and dealer fees.
  • Carman or anyone who can help,

    I just saw the above post and am pretty intrigued. Do you know what the money factor and residual this deal is based on and also if it is also the same for a 2.0t avant. Also is this only on vehicles equipped as specified? Thanks in advance!!!!
  • this is an exceptional lease program (if you're looking for and audi a4 (money factor in the .0011 range with a residual about 73%. the real advantage of this deal is the mileage
    if you're a 10,000 mile or less person
    look into the 30 month deal
    this a deal your waiting for
  • Hi Aerosol,

    How would one go about looking into the 30 month deal? Is that a version of the deal Audi is offering now?

    I think there current deal is great, but I don't 15K a year.

    Also, I'm wondering if this deal is set in stone, or if dealers will be able to move off this slightly and make it even better? A few dollars less per month, say.
  • My questions are basically like a4lease4me asked. I was looking for more in the 12k a year deal. Curious if audi can work off this deal according to my needs.

    I believe I should be going in this week to at least test drive, so I'll ask the questions and let you know. (I'm thinking Tuesday or Wednesday)

    But please reply if you have any input. Much thanks.
  • in response to your ?.
    the 2 year 15k mileage is great if you're a large mileage user (and like to get out early)
    the 30 month 10k is good too if you dont need the miles
    in NY the 30 should cost you with the same money down as the 15k
    about $5-7.oo a month less. the real ? do you get bored with a car
    do you like to change often.
    these are the real questions you need to ask yourself
    and the final caveat is its better to shop for a car at the end of the year ...so the 24month will bring you out in nov/dec 2 years from now
    as opposed to the early summer in 2.6 years
    it really is a close choice, but i must say these are good deals

  • in response to your other question about dealers coming down a little in price
    a good tactic to use is go to another audi dealer first (one you wont be buying from)
    get the deal in writing
    show up at the dealer you like
    get their price
    then play off the other dealers price if its lower then what your getting at the dealer you like.
    they will always go lower to make the sale
    remember to win the car negotiating process have fun, joke, get them off balance
    and try to buy from a dealership that gives you price right there where your sitting,
    not " I have to go speak to the manager type places"
  • Is this really the deal? Zero down? Do we know what we are looking at for a residual and money factor? Also, what is the residual for 12K miles/per year? Does the deal still apply?

    If this is all true, then this is a great deal. Do you think there is still room to negotiate on this?

    Thanks!

    Very interesting! Went to my local Audi dealer in Kalamazoo last week with the Audi ad mentioned above. They told me that they "can't do that deal" and have been "negotiating" with Audi about the fact that "the numbers don't work". They put an ad in the Sunday paper and the monthly payment is $416 for 24 mos. with 15K (does not include taxes and title which I am told ad about $40-50 per month??). Only 1st month payment and lease inception cost ($575)due at signing. Should I be looking around at another dealer?

    Also forgot to mention:
    1. The salesman here seems to know little about this car.
    2. Was told I have to get $1000 Bose radio package to get Sat. radio but my local Audi "gurus" say that there is a dealer installed sat. radio package that plugs into the stock Audi radio (It's no Bose but sounds pretty good to me and has a 6 CD in dash player!).
    3. No one could give me a straight answer about "hands free"/ Bluetooth. Web site says you need the Convenience package for $2100 which has a lot of crap in it!! Web site also lists an additional $500 charge for Bluetooth prep!! This seems like a lot of money considering most of the Japanese luxury cars come standard with hands free!!
  • When contacted via email my local audi dealer quoted me the same deal as advertised on audiusa.com which is like 379/mo for 2yr/15K with no down payment. plus i was offered a 6% off on MSRP right away since they have special pricing for employees of the company i work for. this is now making me strongly incline towards leasing an audi instead of the bmw 3 series i had originally planned... can you guys share any particular reason why u decided to get an audi over the 3 series if u actually had both of them in mind at some point??
  • I'm assuming you're only considering a 328xi v the A4 quatro
    because if your not going allwheel drive dont bother
    if you need the bmw logo and the $5000. more in total payments doesnt bother you
    by all means get the bmw
    the A4 has the driveability/interior design and quality of a car costing thousands more
    plus this is a good lease deal
    it's all about the rush
    if money isnt an issue go with your feelings

  • Hi,
    I am in the process of negotiating with a dealer on a lease of an '07 A4 2.0T. I initially accepted a 30 month/10k a year deal with no money down for $360 per month. But today I saw the advertised special on the audi website for $379/24mos/15k a year. This deal is based on a purchase price of $31,760 which is less than my initial deal of just over $32k. So now I will now try and get $350 per month.

    My question is: is the maintenance program of $550 worth it? It seems that I might need two or three oil changes over the course of the lease and it couldn't be anymore than $250 total.

    Thanks for your help.
  • the money factor and residuals are different on the 24 and 30 month
    so you really cant compare the monthly fees
    never... ever... ever... buy a maintenance program on a leased car
    change the oil at the intervals (and push it to the far side)
    remember you dont own it your renting it
    put the $ toward the 17"wheels or wood package
  • No money down and $360 a month seems like a pretty nice deal. What packages did you have on the car?
  • Keep us posted. Did they quote you a residual and money factor?

    I'm looking for 12k miles/24months. I've been emailing with an internet mgr, I'm going on Monday to "look" at the car. Any tips are appreciated.
  • drjoeddrjoed Posts: 26
    Well, the "lease deal" currently is A4 quattro 2.0T with heated seats and Premium pkg. for $379/ month plus tax. This is with 15K miles/year and I don't think you will do as well if you ask for 12K miles because you will get a higher money factor! Take the 15K and enjoy the car! I found another dealer in my area (see my original posts above) who honored the lease as advertised by Audi above. I got a bunch of options and upped my monthly to $475 but I am happy! BTW, I sign the papers and pick up the car on Sat. AM then I will give you the exact residual and money factor. My wife is a morgage underwriter and knows a lot about these things and says it must be around 0.0010 or less!! I will post when I get the #'s
