    It can be confusing about the S line.

    All 2008 A6's have the S line body treatments standard. It's basically the front chin spolier & rear painted lower valance.

    It's the inteior S line upgrade with the sport seats, special wheel and trim on the inside you have to pay $2000 for.

    On a 3.2, a dealer is quoting upfront fees that include:

    1st month $736
    3yr NJ Registration $371
    lux tax (about 4%) $211.54
    tire $7.50
    doc & prep $148.50
    bank $575
    total fees=$2049.54

    Included in the selling price, rolled into monthly payments are :
    port fees $195
    ad fees $273.49

    What fees are covered by gap? Those are the only ones I want to pay upfront.

    Are these fees in line? Sounds a little high to me. What do you think?

    TIA

    You're right, jabber. Sorry about that. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Audi A6 3.2 Sedan with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00020 and 47%, as I mentioned in my first message. Sorry for the confusion.

    If you buy Audi maintenance resid goes up 1% to 48.
  • After reading your post I did the same search at craigslist.com and they are still advertising a several 2007 A6s $9,000 ~ $10,000 below MSRP. It seems that you got a pretty good deal since it was almost 2 months ago. Were you able to get additional discount form their advertisement price? If so how much? Also what was the APR you got? Thank you and enjoy your A6.

    Plug in your numbers and see if the monthly payment checks out.

  • Hi jeqq. Audi's 36 month lease program for this car is definitely more attractive than its 42 month program right now. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Audi A6 3.2 Sedan with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00027 and 47%, respectively.

    the $575 acquisition fee that the dealer is charging you is legitimate. AFS charges it on every vehicle that it leases and individual dealers do not have the ability to waive it. I usually look at the other non-state levied fees that you mentioned, like doc, ad, etc... as part of the total price of the vehicle that I am interested in. By focusing on the out-the-door price of the car that you want you can filter out all of the noise and focus on the big picture, which is you want to drive off in the car that you are interested in for the lowest total price possible. If this car's selling price, including all of the fees, is less than what you would have to pay for it at other dealers in your area it doesn't really matter how the fees break down.

  • Hi shawn757. This looks like an excellent deal to me. The selling price that you were quoted is well below dealer invoice, even after the $1,500 cash incentive that Audi is currently providing on the A6 is taken into account. The money factor looks good too. If you like the car, I personally don't see any reason not to pull the trigger on this deal.

    Hi,
    Car Man I bought the car 2 Weeks ago Friday. For the price I gave you before. They told me they have hidden $3000 or so got from the dealer on top of the $1500 dealer cash. Hehe. They gave me some of that back too.

    Your deal sounds questionable.
  • jeqqjeqq Posts: 216
    Can you post the 3.2 lease rate for 42 month/15k. I'd like to know.

    Also the A6 4.2: 36month/15k and the 42month/15k.

    Thanks again
  • Car_man:

    Do you have the new money factors and residuals for a 2008 S6?
    for 24 and 36 months at 15K and for 12K.

    Thank you

    Hello and thanks in advance for your thoughts on the following figures:

    I've been quoted the following from two So Cal Audi Dealers - both we're Internet Specials if that means anything:

    2008 A6 3.2 CVT

    10K/36

    MSRP: $49,165 w/options
    Invoice: $45,732 +Audi Ad Buy $550 = $46,282
    Sell Price: $44,794
    Audi Care: not discussed
    Buy Money Factor: .00027
    Residual: 48% of MSRP

    Drive-off cost:

    1st payment: $621** This would be the monthly note ** Does it 'add' up ?
    Security Deposit: Waived as returning Audi customer.
    Cap Reduction Cost: $1259 (I'm "ok" with this to keep the note down)
    Acquisition Fee: $575
    Document/DMV/tire fees/taxes: $543

    Total: $2999

    It's .00045 rate with security deposit. Otherwise it's .00060
  • shawn757shawn757 Posts: 115
    The exact car I got was

    AUDI A6 QUATTRO
    MSRP: 57265
    Invoice: 53267
    Sell Price: 50824
    Audi Care: 590
    Money Factor: .00045
    Residual: 44% of MSRP

    Drive-off cost:

    1st payment: $707 including tax for 42 months with 15K miles a year.
    Security Deposit: $750
    Acquisition Fee: $575
    Document/DMV/tire fees/taxes: $470.74

    Total: 2502.74

    The car options are

    Premium Package
    Technology Package
    Audi Navigation System
    19" Alloy Wheels w/Summer Performance Tires
    Premium Paint Charge
    Sport Suspension
    Audi Music Interface
    Front License Plate Holder
    Color Adjustment Phantom Black Pearl Effect

    The car with $717 a month I posted earlier was sold. There were twins. The sold car had sunshades thats why $10.00 less than the payment.

    How can you say it's questionable? This is the deal I got. The best part is there was 2 dealers who were willing to do this out of 8 dealers. And the car was also a dealer trade in not a car that they had in stock. They had to truck it and bring it at their cost to their dealership. If the dealer was loosing money I don't think they would go this far to sell a car! Thats why I beleive him when he said $3000 from Audi on top of $1500 dealer cash. Since 2 dealers was willing to do it that statement should be true.

    I was told this weekend about the $3,000. I was also "informed" that it is no longer available as of January. Is that correct?

    You did well, enjoy the car.

    TIA

    I am not sure. I know the $1500 is still available but don't know about the $3000. Dealer told me that they had better incentive back in November. He said they could have done about $50 better for 36 moth 15k that what they offered me in December which was $740. I choose the 42 months since the payment was lowered to $707.

    "You will easily do better at Rasnak Audi in Pasadena or at Penski"

    yeah ok... what do you mean by that ? Better Net Cap Cost, better drive off, better money factor etc etc...

    Elaborate please.
