  • Was it a 24 or 36 month lease? What state? If california let me know the dealer please. Sounds good.
  • Should I go now or wait until June or July. Would love to know what the best deal on a 24 month lease would be with A6 3.2. 7500 miles or 10,000 miles per year.
    MSRP of $43,840 including Destination.

    I think I originally posted this under the wrong topic.

    Audi is currently offering special lease terms on the A6 3.2 Q with Sunroof and Premium package until May 31. Its under specials on the website.

    The MSRP is $48,640 and the Purchase Option is $26,266. For 10,000 miles a year its $499 per month. That requires $2499 upfront with a $575 acquisition fee. Based on my calculations, if you assume a cap cost at the invoice price of $44,956, (which I know is low) the interest rate is only 2%. Otherwise if you assume the cap cost is higher, then the rate is even lower.

    Is this possible? Is this deal to good to be true?

    Go to www.Audi.com the deal is there, however check the small print, the dealer has to contribute and final price may vary.........watch out for the "turn in fee" catch.
    Best of luck.

    There is no turn in fee catch. Many leasing compnaies may charge a dispostion fee when your lease is up. It can vary anywhere between $250-500. I think Audi's was $350. Not a big deal.

    The previous A6 3.2 Quattro lease deal was 519 month 36/10K on a 46k base sunroof pack car. The current deal is $499 month, but they're giving you the $2500 premium package as well.

    I'm assuming Audi is trying to clear off the 06's in anticpation for the 07's.

    This is the best lease deal that Audi has ever offered on the new body stlye A6's.

    so in your lease deal, did you get the $499 deal. If so what was the negotiated price and the money factor?
  • julisoljulisol Posts: 1
    I am about to see a dealer about a 2006 Audi avant wagon. What kind of monthly payment can I expect if I want to lease for 36 months and 15k/yr, no money down?
  • geddylgeddyl Posts: 2
    Has anyone dealt with generalcar.com? They have great deals but I need som references.

    Thanks

    All,

    Here is the deal I received on my recent A6. Just turned in my 2003 A6 and the new model makes a good thing even better :) !

    A6 - CVT- Premium and Sunroof
    Purchased in Dallas, TX

    36 Month Lease
    53% Residual
    .00056 MF
    Purchase Price 43,182
    Tax - 540 (Texas typically hits you with the full 6.25%-would have been $2,700, but ask for the tax credit to reduce this to about 1.25%)
    Title and Fees- $182
    Acquisition- $575
    Total Negotiated (amount financed) - $46,639.00

    Money Down - $0 (paid my first payment and took the keys)

    Total Monthly Payment - $602

    Few Items of Note from my buying experience:

    1. Not one dealer would participate in the Audi posted special ($499 A6 Quattro). Many acted completely lost on the deal.

    2. Make sure you demand the MF rate that you see out on this site. I had one dealer acted offended because I was negotiating this rate as part of the package. I know that the "can" mark this up, but he was not happy that I knew the bottom line rate and would hold him to it (Needles to say I did not purchase at this dealership - Thanks Edmunds!)

    3. In Texas since you have to pay the full tax on a lease car,make sure you ask for that Tax Credit. Without that credit the price of the lease would go up dramatically. It would have been an extra $2200 non-residualized, thus adding $62 to the monthly payment.

    4. Negotiate those Fees. Those hidden charges that they don't want to detail in negotiations varied by $1000 between the dealership (again these are non-residualized an therefore equate to an extra $2000 on the price of the actual car)

    5. Work your numbers and present them. With good spreadsheet and the knowledge from these forums, you can justify your numbers and what the monthly payment should be. If they are different from the dealers.... make them justify them. Can't tell you how many times the dealer has said "I just punched those numbers in the computer and this was the monthly price that it gave me". Every time the dealer has said this, it has show on further review that there was an undisclosed fee or different price in his numbers somwhere. Calculating a lease payment is not a mystery....it's a math formula!.

    6. Never put $ down on a lease

    Good Luck and thanks to everyone on this board for their advice. This is the 5th car I have leased using the knowledge gained from these forums and the leasing calculations on this site. I am sure there are better deals to be found than what I have negotiated, but I have never walked out with buyers remorse or felt completely taken by the dealer.

    Happy Drivin!

    Hi jrme77. Given the fact that they are so much less popular than leases, I do not personally keep tabs on the details of manufacturers' balloon note programs. Sorry that I could not be of more help with this aspect of your deal.

    Greetings hessian. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2006 A6 3.2 Sedan with quattro is .00073. This is equivalent to an interest rate of around 1.75%. As you can see, the interest rate that you came up with was pretty close. When negotiating your lease on this car, keep in mind that manufacturers' advertised lease payments usually leave a little meat on the bone so to speak. If you are in an area that has a decent level of competition, you should be able to negotiate a lower selling price than the one this advertised lease is based upon.

    Hi julisol. Your lease payment for this vehicle will depend upon its MSRP and selling price. I would be happy to use Audi's current lease program for it to estimate what your monthly payment should be if you provide me with these numbers.

    Hi nickelrev. You should not make a down payment when leasing this car. All you have to pay at lease signing is its first month's payment, a security deposit that is equivalent to that payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment, Audi Financial Services' $575 acquisition fee, and any required state taxes or fees.

    I am not personally all that familiar with what the market is like for this car right now in terms of its selling price, but you may be able to get a good idea of how much you should pay by visiting the following discussion: "Audi A6: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

    As far as this car's lease program goes, if you were to lease a 2006 Audi A6 3.2 Sedan with quattro through Audi financial Services right now for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00056 and 53%, respectively.

    Congratulations on a great deal. I have similar numbers and am in the North East. Looking for a similar car but would be willing to part with more $ if I could get Tech package, and wooden steering wheel (I am leaving a Jaguar S-Type, my second because their technology is stale...another story). I hope I can find a non Quat in the NE and that too is another story. But tell me, what is the Tax Credit. Is this a Dallas thing or an Audi thing.
  • bando12bando12 Posts: 2
    In Texas you have to pay the taxes on the full value of the car (6.25%). I believe there a few other states that hit you with this upfront tax such as Illinois) In Texas there is a tax credit for a trade-in. It is possible to get a tax credit on a lease turn-in if the lender you are leasing with has a vehicle coming off lease.

    Not sure if that is applicable in any other state, but is specific to the dealer, and not with Audi.

    Good luck
  • is .00053 the correct money factor for a 36 mo lease? would the money factor change if the term was reduced to 24 mo? is the money factor the came for both premier purchase and leases? any idea what the residual rate is for a 24 mo lease?

    many thanks for the great info.

    All,
    I have never leased before, so I am uncertain of how much room there is to negotiate when Audi runs these promo's. I want to lease (with intent to buy after 36 months) an:
    * A6 w/prem, sunroof, tech, & 18" wheels - MSRP $53,340.

    When running these aggressive promo's - can I still negotiate a lower selling price & plug in the residual & mf #'s that are used for the promo into the lease calculator? Or when running these promo's is there not much room to move off the MSRP?

    Thanks!
  • dolsey01dolsey01 Posts: 69
    Just my personal experience, but Audi's tend to be their best for the first 36 months. If you buy it after the lease, you will only have 12 months left of the warranty. My A6 was in the shop 12 times between 36,000 and 48,000 and I will never own another Audi, but I will certainly lease one. They are great to drive, but after about 36,000 miles, horrible to maintain. Also after the factory maintenance runs out at 50,000, they get VERY expensive to maintain. I will probably always have an Audi in stable, but only if it is under warranty.

    Audi is currently running the following special lease offer on the 2006 A6 3.2 quattro sedan with 6-Speed Automatic Tiptronic Transmission, Premium package and Sunroof Package:

    $499 per month
    36-month lease
    Down payment $3,499 (I do not qualify for Audi's $1,000 Loyalty/Conquest reduction)
    Refundable security deposit N/A
    Acquisition fee $575

    Lessee responsible for $0.25/mile over 10,000 miles per year and a disposition fee of $350 due at lease end.

    Rate based on $48,640 MSRP of 2006 Audi A6 3.2 quattro® Sedan with 6-Speed Automatic Transmission with Tiptronic, Premium package, Sunroof Package, and destination charge.

    Purchase option at lease end for $26,265.60.

    Any reaction to whether this is a good basic deal and where to negotiate on this?

    I am buying in New York City and the New York Metropolitan area.
  • rjlaerorjlaero Posts: 659
    This current lease deal is already a "skinny" deal for your dealer. Back in the spring, the lease deal was 519/mo on a base 46k car. Now you get the $2500 premium package thrown in, and the payment is down to 499. I'm assuming Audi just wants to clear the last 06's off the lot. You might be able to negotiate a little more in the crowded North East market, but I doubt too much more.

    Does Audi run any specials on the A6 4.2? I have leased two Audi's and I am up for renewal in Fev 07. However, I have been told that my local dealer should have deals come August. I would assume these would be on 2006's, but I am not sure if a hot car like the 4.2 would discount. My last Audi I was able to get out 9 months early with out a penalty and I got the same lease price as my expiring car 2 1/2 years later. I was also about 2000 miles away from 50k when they let me out.

    Thoughts????

    Thanx
  • njvikenjvike Posts: 56
    I was thinking the same thing but when I asked my local dealer last month, the money factor was horrible. I do not remember the numbers he provided to me but the lease was in the $800s :mad: with about $2500 down.

    Hi nickelrev. Do you happen to know what this car's original MSRP was? I ask because that will show how much of a discount you are bring given on it. If the discount is large enough, this would be a good car to buy, but not to lease. Audi Financial Services isn't even leasing '05 models any longer. You may want to stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members paid for similar cars in the past and if anyone has any comments on this deal: "Audi A6: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

    Hi pcalbright. Audi Financial Services' lease program varies by model. If you were to lease an '06 A6 3.2 Sedan through AFS right now for 36 months its buy rate lease money factor would be .00056. This would be exactly the same for a 24 month lease. Audi's Premier Purchase program is what is known in the industry as a balloon note program. Balloon notes use interest rates, like 4.9%, instead of money factors to calculate interest charges. As I mentioned earlier, AFS' lease program varies by model. If you tell me the exact model that you want and how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it I would be happy to give you an idea of what its residual value should be like.

    Welcome pem5. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    The selling prices of leased vehicles are absolutely negotiable. You can use the same money factor and residual value to calculate Audi's current advertised lease payments in conjunction with whatever price you are able to negotiate. There is usually a little room for additional discounts on advertised leases for consumers who live in areas that have a decent level of competition.

    Hi kindzcar. Audi is currently providing lease support on the A6 4.2 Sedan. I am not personally all that familiar with what the market is like for this car right now, but I think that it is fairly safe to assume that dealers are discounting it. Audi is not currently running any sort of early lease termination program that I am aware of on the A6. As a result, I suspect that it will be fairly expensive for you to get out of your current lease so early. I personally would wait until I was closer to the scheduled end of my current lease to get something new.

    So what are the factors for the A6 4.2 lease? I know they have some sort of lease for the A6 V6 that I didn't find very impressive at all. It requires 3573 due at lease inception (2499 down payment), then 499/month for 36 months based ona 48,640 MSRP and a lease end purchase option of 26,265.

    And that's only 10k miles a year with no taxes included.

    I'd love to get a 4.2L A6 but for that price which only includes the basic 6-speed auto, sunroof, and 'premium' package (which are mostly things that are often standard on the competition's cars)... I have a hard time justifying it.

    BTW, right now I'm at about the 12 month mark of a 24 month lease of an Audi A4 6-speed manual w/ sunroof package, XM, metallic paint, heated headlight washers, and 17" wheels (just listing the very spartan options) and paid absolutely zero down, about 800 due at least inception, 389 a month including all taxes and fees and 15k miles a year for 24 months. Now THAT is more like it. :D
