Audi A4 Lease Questions

    Please provide your thoughts on the following lease I was offered today.

    2008 Audi A4 Sedan 2.0T quattroAT6 SE
    MSRP: $34,850.00
    Sale Price:$31,983.56
    Rate: .00110
    Residual 0.55
    Residual Price $19,167.50
    Lease payment: $400.00 per month
    36 Months
    15,000 Mile per year
    Audi care included in price

    $2,000.00 at signing includes ACQ fee $575, 1st month payment of $400, DOC fee $148.50, NJ registration $282.50

    Taxes were rolled into the lease and included in the $400 per month.

    Not sure how the tax rate is calculated in NJ, but they told me the taxes were $1088.15. Seems high on 7% NJ sales tax.

    Your quote seems a bit low, which I guess is a good thing! Based on your sale price, I am calculating a montly lease for you of about $440, including 7% tax. The only thing I can think of is that your $2,000 down must include some cap cost reduction, which is not reflected in the sale price that you are giving. Do you have to pay a security deposit? If not, then it looks like you are reducing the sale price almost $1,000, which is closer to $400 (I get $410/mo.).

    Looks like a good deal to me.

    There is a $1,000 manufacturer cash incentive on the car the dealer is applying to the lease. $2,000 is my total out of pocket. There is no additional down payment on the car or security deposit. This is my first time leasing an Audi so I wasn't sure if I was getting a good deal or not. Our other car is a 2006 Volvo S40 T5 AWD with all the options at the time except navigation. I believe it ran around the same MSRP.

    Our payments are $387 a month but this was using Chase auto finance and qualifying for the Ford A-plan due to a family member working for Volvo.

    ***Correction: In totaling up the basic fees and subtracting them from the $2000, The dealership is putting the remainder $600-$650 as a reduction.

    In consideration of the numbers, is $400 a good lease price? $400 includes taxes and audi care.

    I have a 2007 A4 and my lease is up in September. It looks like the new 2.0Ts won't be out for a while, so I was just considering re-leasing my car for another year or two. Is this a bad idea? I know that they subsidize leases on the new cars, so will a lease on my two year old car be a terrible deal and I may as well lease a new one, or will I actually have a lower payment than on a comparable A4, but new. I wonder if the deals on the outgoing model will be really good at that time?

    I live in New England and I'm looking to lease an A4 Wagon. Can anyone tell me what the money factor and residual is on this car based on a 36 month, 12,000 mile per year lease? With an MSRP around $37,000, I would like to get the payment in the mid $400s (including the 7% Rhode Island sales tax) with only about $1,000 due at signing. Am I dreaming? And will I get it at $500 over invoice?

    Any help would be great.

    I should have mentioned that it is Quattro and has heated seats.

    The dealer also mentioned adding maintenance to the lease for an additional $6 per month. What are your thought on that?

    My lease for my A-4 ends this month so I am in the market again. I was originally not going to get another A-4 but it seems that the lease is now very favorable, so I am reconsidering. Can you please provide me the "FACTS" on a lease in the South FL area for an 08 Conv. with FWD in South FL , as I have seen a few different numbers here.

    1. I have seen MF at .00025, .00052, and .00048 so the real bottom money factor is (assuming one qualifies)???

    2. the residual with 10,000 and 12,000 miles annual. (54% & 55%)
    3. I also have heard that if you take the Audi Maintanance program for $650 it will increase the residual by 1%.
    4, I have seen some posts with sale price under Invoice, is that reliable?
  • Have a question about money factor, which was something I didn't understand at all before finding this great site.

    I was given a money factor of .00055 for an A4 lease in Oakland. Been poking around this site and saw some lower ones listed. Should I angle for a lower one? Will that make much of a difference in the monthly?

    Here's the details:

    2008 Audi A4 Quattro, Auto, premium, bluetooth
    36 mo
    54% residual
    msrp: 34,425
    rebate: 1,750
    money factor: .00055
    2,500 down
    Monthly (with tax): $366.85

    I recall the price quoted was $500 over invoice, but I don't have that on my sheet.
  • ac3ac3 Posts: 12
    Yes the mf is important as it is the interest rate that determines the monthly payment. If instead the mf is .00027 your payment would be approximately $15 less per month based on the partial info you supplied. I used the mf above because I have seen on this forum that as the Audi Finance lease buy rate. But because you are not specific about your model that may not be the correct rate.

    Also, most people would tell you that putting money down on a lease is not the way to go. Personally I never put money down on a lease.
  • Thanks ac3,

    Whoops, forgot to include that part. It's a 2008 Audi A4 2.0 Quattro. Would that be .00027 as well?

    Thanks for the info! Didn't know about the hazards of putting money down until I got here ...
