Audi A6 Lease Questions



  • Thanks for the information. I was also wondering is there a chart of where one can find the best deals in the country? I travel extensively and have to beleive that in larger markets the dealers are more aggressive to move cars off their floor plan than in smaller markets. Is there such a site that has top dealerships by state by brand?

    Thanks again,

    Got offered the following yesterday, good deal or no?

    Audi A6 2.0 Quattro, 2014
    Msrp was 52k
    10k miles/yr
    36 months
    0 drive off
    $575/mo including tax

  • So I narrowed it down to either the TDI or the TFSI, and for what I'm looking for in options, the TDI isn't available. That said, here are the numbers I hashed out on a 2014 A6 Prestige 3.0 TFSI with Black Optics and LED lights. Some of it I'm not quite sure about, but the overall seems reasonable. Please let me know...

    MSRP: $63,495
    Selling Price: $57,995
    L.E.V. (Residual): 50% (incl Audi Care)
    Term: 42 Months
    Money Fact: .00139
    Cust Cash Down: $0.00
    Rebate: $3,302 [$1,500 Audi Owner, $1,000 AFS, $802 Audi Season something (covers first payment)]
    Total We Owes: $820 (What exactly does this mean?)
    Adjusted Cap Cost: $57,743 (What is this?)
    Total Sales Tax: $2,645.48 (8%)
    Base Monthly Rental: $743.34
    TTL Mo Pay: $802.81
    Amt Due at Start: $3,302
    TTL Initial Fees: $803.75
    TTL Annual Fees: $476
    One Pay: N
    TTL Working Cash: $3,302

    I know the Residual and Money Factor match, but what do you think of the other details? For the negotiated selling price, does this seem right? Thanks in advance.

    The numbers don't add up. I did the calculation based on your numbers and here is what I got:

    The total monthly pay I'm getting is $749.68 w/o taxes. With taxes, it comes out to be a little bit more. Not sure where you are getting the $803.75 from.

    Btw, how many miles per year this deal is about?

  • It's for 12K miles, 42 months. I thought they said that the $803.75 was including sales tax, which sounds like it's close to your numbers, maybe off by a few bucks.
  • zkayzkay Posts: 8
    Its about $786/m. Still more than a few bucks IMO.

    When I calculate lease payments without tax, they include the Depreciation + Finance Charge (calculated from MF). It seems to me that dealers calculate Sales tax on this sum and not on the depreciation alone. I have two questions:

    1. Can someone validate this to be true? I have seen it several times already
    2. Is this negotiable? IMO sales tax on finance charge does not make sense, it should only be applied to the vehicle depreciation value.

    There are probably 10 different ways to calculate sales tax on a lease, depending on the state..

    I think you are in New Jersey? Tax is calculated on the sum of the payments, plus any money paid upfront, IIRC..

    Hi kyfdx,

    Can you please help me understand why these numbers look high? I'm guessing there is a lot of dealer fat in the drive off? Location is California.

    MSRP: $58,995.00
    Your ePrice: $56,350.00
    12,000 miles @ 36 months
    $2,159 total drive-off
    Monthly payment: $810.11
    $5,000 total drive-off
    Monthly payment: $725.72
    Residual Value: 56%, $33,037.20
    Money Factor: 0.00107
  • Actually, assuming 9% state tax, the $810 payment is right on the money..

    The monthly payment looks high, because Audi just has a real average lease program, without much in the way of factory support.. Money factors are about market level, residuals aren't pumped up, and no dealer cash incentives... you actually have a pretty good selling price, of about 6% off of MSRP...

    Audis are not cheap to lease, relative to MSRP...

    I would very much appreciate it if you could post the MF and residuals for the 2013 and 2014 A6 3.0 TFSI with 10K/yr (either 24 or 36 months would be great). I am especially interested in the 2013 models as it seems there may be some substantial savings in the cap cost at this point. Thanks!

    2014 A6 3.0T Premium Plus 36mo, 10K/yr lease

    .00119 MF and 57% residual. The 24 month numbers are not cost effective.

    2013: .00009 MF and 51% residual

    Those numbers are only good through Tuesday, January 7th.

  • I am in the market and want to get the MF for a 2014 A6 3.0 and 2013 A6 2.0? Both with Premiuim Plys package. True pice gives me a price of $52,711 for the A6 3.0. Do you think that's a good price? thank you for any insights shares.
