    dealer quoted me this price
    2007 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro Auto
    premimum pkg and heated seats
    MSRP 33350
    selling price 31959
    36 months 10k miles
    MF .00064
    residual 56%
    418/mo with with first payment and tax up front
    i plugged in the numbers to the lease calculator and they dont add up can anyone help me get a better deal on this?
    when we couldnt get a better deal they told us to come back next month because the numbers might be different which i found kind of odd.
    thanks

    you should be able to get more $$$ off. I got over $2000 off my cab. Did you add 575 aqu fee to cap cost. that could be why your're off
  • miket21miket21 Posts: 8
    I addded the aqu fee but it still only comes up to a $402 payment. I still dont get how they're getting 418/mo
    If i can get the sale price lower and get the mf to the standard .00054 I should be where i want to be, but the next closest Audi dealer is 80 miles away!

    Do what i did and send an email to get a price and payment from other dealers. The car can be serviced at any audi dealer. If you get a lower price show give the present dealer another shot to match. They most likely will. in my case my closest dealer did match one further away

    add in Audi Care at $590 to $31,959 - until I did this my numbers were off. Did you get Audi care? - it raises residual bu one point I think...also the aquisition fee $575 as pointed out by another post...normally paid up front with 1st payment, taxes + doc fee/title/reg.

    The MF looks marked up as you indicate as it should be .00054, although the res at 56% seems better - I know it varies around the country from Audi Finance.

    But ask them to sell at invoice - all they can do is say no and it is the end of the month and it is an 07.

    The audi care should add about $5/mth to payment. I got somewhere around $2,000 off sitcker on a covertible whi0ch are much harder to get. Offer to them you'll sign by months end. They need the numbers! Patience is very important. should the net and get other prices then you can tell them I got ----.

    I have been on this site forever checking lease deals and I finally pulled the trigger yesterday on a Dolphin Gray A4 Avant. It is a Gorgeous car!

    I shopped at Sonnen in Marin, Santa Barbara Audi, Rusnack-Westlake and finally bought at Keyes in Van Nuys. The sales folks at the first three were pretty good but were not super knowledgable. But my salesman, Ali (Sayed Ali), at Keyes was excellent. He showed me all the Audi secrets _ (MF, Residual, etc.), played no games and gave me a great price.

    Price: My quotes at the first three dealers ranged from $500 to $800 above invoice but Ali gave me the best price by far. (I can't quote it.)

    MF: .00065 (You can do better if you are an Audi/VW customer).

    Residual .52 (with Audicare).

    Trade in: "Fair" price from Edmunds/KBB for a Saab with 106,000.

    Now is a pretty good time to buy. It is the end of the model year and the MF is quite good. It seems to me though that while MF and residual fluctuate, the overall lease rate for A4s stays pretty much the same. But again, the price is good right now.

    Edwardsf -- post a pic of your A4 Avant on Audizine.com under the "Avants" user/owners section. Would love to see a pic. I am not into the modding scene but do enjoy seeing Avants from all over the world on this site. My ID on that site is "Steiner." Check it out.

    Hi, cars0153... i have asked several dealerships for lease quotes, on an a4, auto, 12k mi/yr, premium, navi, convenience, all tax and fees rolled into monthly payments, no money down, and blue tooth, but i have only gotten 2 quotes back, each were so ridiculously hi it wasnt funny.

    I was wondering if you might be able to share the quotes you got so i can go to the dealer with them.

    If ANYONE has any good quotes direct from a dealer, can u please send them over to me? my email is GringoLibre@gmail.com.

    since i am leasing in the long island area, quotes closer to my area would be most helpful.

    thanks everyone, in advance. ;)

    Hi chadraymond5. This car's lease program varies by term and mileage allowance. 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 A4 2.0T Sedan with quattro with 15,000 miles peer year are .00054 and 53%, respectively.

    Hello jbeckr. The money factor that you were quoted for this car is way too high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of an '07 Audi A4 2.0T Sedan is .00054. Negotiate as low a selling price as you can on this car and make sure that the dealer you lease from uses this factor to calculate your monthly payment.

    Welcome jburleig. Most banks do not make lists of the money factors and residual values that they use to calculate vehicles' lease payments available to the general public. Having said this, I should be able to give you an idea of what Audi's current lease program for the car that you want is if you tell me exactly which model you want, how long you want to lease it for, and what mileage allowance you need.

    Greetings wootang00. I am sorry to say that it is usually fairly expensive to get out of leases well before their scheduled end dates. In order to do so, you need to purchase the vehicle that you are currently leasing from the bank that you are leasing it through. It often turns out that it costs more to do so than your vehicle is worth on the open market. Furthermore, many banks expect consumers who end their leases early to still make all, or at least the depreciation portion of their remaining lease payments. As you can see, this can get very expensive.

    You can determine approximately how much it will cost you to get out of your current lease by comparing its purchase price to its value on the open market at this time. You should place a call to the bank that you are leasing your vehicle through to find out its exact price. Once you know exactly how much money it is going to cost you to buy your leased vehicle you need to compare it to its current value on the open market. You can find out approximately what your vehicle is worth by looking up its Edmunds.com True Market Value in the Used Vehicle Pricing section of this site. You also may want to stop by the following discussion: "Real-World Trade-In Values". Don't forget to check to see if you are still on the hook for your remaining lease payments. The difference between your leased vehicle's current value and how much it will cost you to buy it plus any remaining lease payments that you are obligated to pay will equal the cost of getting out of your lease right now. You may find that you are better off waiting until you are closer to the scheduled end of your lease to get another new vehicle.

    The dealer that you are working with might say that they will absorb some of the hit that you will take from getting out of your current lease early for you, but all they really would be doing is taking some of the discount that you would have been able to negotiate on this car and using it to get you out of your lease. This will result in you getting a much worse deal on your new car than if you had waited until the end of your current one to get something new.

    Hi edwardsf. The money factor that you were quoted to lease this car is too high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Audi A4 2.0T Avant is .00054. The factor would be .00015 higher than this if you opt to have your car's security deposit waived. The selling price that you were quoted for this car looks pretty good though. The dealer invoice price for the model that you described is probably around $32,200. That puts the selling price that you were quoted at around $500 over invoice, which is attractive. Just get the money factor lowered and you're in business.

    Greetings tizzle. It is difficult for me to say if you will be able to negotiate the same monthly payment that you currently have on the new car that you are interested in. If you provide me with the full MSRP and selling price of the new car, I can use Audi's current lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be for you. The best way to get a good deal on your new car is to negotiate as low a selling price as you possibly can on it and then have the dealer use Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor to calculate its monthly payment. Unfortunately, banks do not provide refunds to lessees for unused mileage. So unless you can purchase your car and sell it on your own for a profit or trade it in you will not be able to monetize your unused mileage.

    Hi edogg1. The money factor that you were quoted is a little high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate for 36 month leases of '07 A4 2.0T Sedans is .00054 with the payment of a security deposit and .000150 higher than that with the deposit waived. Make sure that the dealer you are working with uses this money factor to calculate your car's monthly payment.

    Let's take a look at the selling price that you were quoted. The car that you described probably has a spread of around $3,000 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That is the exact discount that you are being given on it, so this aspect of your deal looks very attractive to me. Overall, I'd say that this is a good deal, but it would be even better if you can get the dealer to lower the money factor.

    Hey edogg1. Audi Financial Services' residual values for models that are equipped with the S-Link Package are 2% lower than its normal residual values. Adding Audi Care actually boosts AFS' residual values by one point.
