Audi A6 Lease Questions

  • Wow, schange, this is one expensive car...with an MSRP of 496,900 :surprise: . Obviously something's not right with the prices that you posted ;) . If you post this car's correct MSRP and selling price I would be happy to give you feedback on them. You can always stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar cars lately: "Audi A6: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". For now I can tell you that the money factor that you were quoted for this car is right in line with Audi Financial Services' buy rate for it (with a waived security deposit). This is a good sign.

  • Hi mnoker. I personally am not all that familiar with what the market is like for this car right now. You may be able to get an idea of how much you should pay for one, selling price-wise, by visiting the following discussion: "Audi A6: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". Once you have an approximate selling price for this car, let me know and I can use Audi Financial Services' actual lease program to estimate what its monthly payment should be.

  • Hi mnoker. $6,000 under dealer invoice is an excellent price for this car. It is below invoice even after the $5,000 dealer cash that is available on this car right now is taken into account. Using Audi Financial Services' current 36 month lease program for this model, .00328 / 45%, I estimate that this car's zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $685. With this deal you would have to pay your first month's payment, a security deposit equivalent to that payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment, and AFS' $575 acquisition fee at lease signing.

  • Rjlaero, now that Audi is no longer providing lease support on the 2006 A6 I believe that the dealer cash that is available on this car can be used on leases through Audi Financial Services.

    Thanks Car Man! Any word on the October lease rates/residuals for Audi A6 and A8? Again, I would be low miles and term not exceeding 36 months unless there is a "sweet spot" a little longer than that. My current lease for example was for 39 months. Thanks again!
  • Audietc
    Can you please name the dealer who gave you this deal in CT? Far as I know, dealer names ARE permitted on this site, only SALESPEOPLE names are not allowed. THanks

    My car comes off lease in March of 07 and I'm planning on leasing a 3.2 quattro A6 with Nav in the Washington, DC area. My question is whether anyone thinks it's beneficial to lease towards the end of '06, hoping to get a good deal on a 2006 model, or should I wait until my lease expires. Assuming I were to lease in December I'd be looking at about $1300 of lease payments I still need to make on my current car. Do you think savings could outweigh the remaining cost of my lease? Sorry if this is a naive question, it's only the 2nd time I've bought a car. Thanks!
  • I can purchase a 2007 Audi A6 at invoice price. What would the lease factors be on this car? I can puchase a 2006 A6 with 4500 miles that has not been titled for $37000. I have not examined a lease for this purchase.
    Any advice? Sorry to be so vague but I wasn't even in the market for a car until I got on this forum and found the prices others were getting.
    Thanks so much for your help.

    Can you be more specific on the 07 A6? Is it a 4.2, what packages, etc. I don't think they are discounting the 4.2 that much because of the limited number of engines available
  • I'm sure it's not a 4.2' Other than that I don't really know much. We have been communicating by e-mail and I was told they would sell 2007s at invoice. Went to the dealer last night and had a salesman who knew absolutely nothing about the car. Thought I would get a follow-up e-mail or telephone call today but nothing. Maybe they're not as anxious to sell a car as they appeared.
    The 06 is still available at a $10000 discount.
  • Hi Car_man,
    This is going to be my first car to lease and I need your help.

    Here is the info I got from the dealer:

    MSRP = $54470
    Your & nbsp Price = $51379  (this invoice with option $49852.00 from Edmunds. But dealer said that “Edmunds is just a guideline at best” and gave me invoice $ 50879.00)

    36 mo @ 12000 miles per year
    2321.57 drive off & nbsp;
    849.86 + tax (CA tax 8.25%)

    Acquisition fee: 575
    Residual: 29958.50
    MF: 0.00180

    Initial cap: 54470.00
    Adjusted cap: 55045.00

    Has Tech, preminum and Convenience Package.

    Thanks for your help.
  • I have located a 2006 A6 3.2L FT CVT with 4500 miles. It was used as a loaner and has never been titled. It is light silver metalic w/ebony interior and has sunroof, premium package, 18" 7 spoke alloy wheels and power rear sunshades and side sunshades. The MSRP is $47,094. They will sell the car for $38,894 out the door, Also, I can lease for 36 months with 12K miles per year for $1960 initial cost and $550 per month plus tax of $33 for a total of $583. per month.
    Good deal? Which is the better deal? I am obviously inexperienced at this and would appreciate amy comments or suggestions.

    Check out some of the earlier posts. 2006 A6s have been selling brand new for $6000 under invoice. I bought a 4.2 A6 for about $10k below MSRP and they were offering the same deal on the 3.2s. This was Audi of Alexandria in VA. You may want to shop around more, unless this is all that's left and you're hooked. By the way, I have about 2000 miles on mine and it's been flawless.
  • No problem, petrie3. Audi Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 A6 4.2 Sedan with 10,000 miles per year are .00140 and 55%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2007 Audi A8 4.2L long wheel base are .00249 and 57%.

  • Hi dras. This isn't a naive question at all. Unfortunately, it is already too late to get a great deal on lease of a 2006 Audi. Not only has Audi stopped providing lease support on 2006 models, but it even cut its dealer cash on them by $1,000 this month. You would be much better off waiting to lease a 2007 model in March of next year. Not only is is likely that you will get a better deal on your new car, but you won't waste the money that you would have to spend to get out of your current lease early.

  • Hi lyndonw. This car's lease program varies depending upon exactly what model you want, how long you want to lease it for, and its mileage allowance. I would be happy to give you an idea of what the lease program is currently like for the A6 that you are interested in if you provide me with this missing information.

  • Greetings brokerr. 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.

    Let me begin by saying that the money factor that you were quoted for this car is too high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of any 2007 A6 is currently only .00140 with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing and .00155 with the deposit waived. It appears as though the dealer that you are working with is marking your car's money factor up to add additional hidden back-end profit to your deal. Now that you know what your car's money factor should be you should be able to get your dealer to use it to calculate your car's payment.

    The selling price that you were quoted for this car doesn't look bad, but you might want to stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for their A6s lately: "Audi A6: Prices Paid & Buying Experience" .

  • Hi lyndonw. You should be able to get this car for waaaaay below dealer invoice. Audi is currently providing $5,000 dealer cash on leftover 2006 A6 Sedans. So right there you are at $5,000 or so below invoice. Then you have to add an additional discount for the thousands of miles that this car has on it. I personally would want to get this car for at least $7,000 below invoice and the dealer may not be willing to make that happen. I usually find that dealers are usually not willing to provide as large a discount on demo vehicles as I would want to purchase what is essentially a low mileage used vehicle over a brand new one. You can look up the invoice price of the exact car that you want by visiting the following section of this site: Edmunds.com - New Vehicle Pricing.

  • What is the MF and Residual for 2007 A6's, both 3.2 and 4.2 models.

    Is there a difference for Sedan and Avant?
    How about one with and without the S-Line Package?

    Tks,
    Jimmy
  • Odd....but I've found that also to be true. Dealers do not discount demos to the level of used low mileage vehicles. Yet as a buyer I'd prefer a low mileage one owner used vehicle over a demo. Odds favor that it was taken much better care of and not abused. Demos are usually ridden hard and put away wet from mile number one.

    carman,

    hello, was debating whether to wait till next month to lease a fully optioned 2007 a6 avant. do you also know the current november mf and residual?

    thank you,

    john
  • Hi Jimmy. These cars' lease programs vary depending upon how long you lease them for and their mileage allowances. 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 A6 3.2 Sedan with quattro and 15,000 miles per year are .00140 and 53%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2007 A6 4.2L Sedan are .00140 and 52%. If you add the S-Line package the A6's residual values drop by 2%.

  • Washington DC area dealers are advertising a $538/month lease on a 2007 A6 with an msrp of 47,270. The deal is for 36 months with $25,053 purchase option at lease end. 10,000 miles. $2250 down, security deposit $550 and acquisition fee of $575. Cost factor is .00190.

    The dealer we spoke with would do this deal but somehow he calculated that there would be $7000 due at lease signing... The advertised deal does say it doesn't include taxes, though I'm not completely clear on where that $7000 is coming from. That number may need to be negotiated further.

    In any event, anyone have thoughts on this to help me? Is the advertised deal very good, or just so-so? Thanks very much.

    My Allroad lease is up and Audi just does not make any sense. Leased a 530i with no money down (fist payment only) for 36mos with money reate of .00065 and residual of 60%. For a MSRP of $55,000 its a payment with taxes of $630. Two factors made me defect, first was the desire for Manual Transmission and second was financial. Comparable A6 would cost less but lease for much more.

    I loved my Audi and love the A6, but there is a limit.

    I hope to be back to Audi some day. Really!
  • Clearly BMW is subventing their leases in order to move their product. That money factor and residual are both better than the "market". I think BMW is having trouble selling enough of their Bangle-mobiles and need to subsidize to do it. The Audi programs use decent interest rates (though not a low as BMW) but the AFS residuals are probably pretty realistic (which means very low).

    If Audi can move enough inventory at these levels then more power to them; but it doesn't mean we have to lease a Audi when other deals are vastly superior! I'm not a big fan of the BMW 5 or 7 series, but am still tempted by the deals at BMW. The Mercedes residual on the new S makes it competitive as a lease with the A8 which has a much lower MSRP! I am struggling with my decision now. I keep expecting that AFS will be offering a competitive program any day now, but it doesn't seem to be in the cars; which must mean that the company is satisfied with the number of cars it is "selling" through leases.

    This has been the problem with Audi all along. Its seems to me that AFS doesn't support there cars enough to offer higher residuals which would then bring there monthly payments in line.

    However they want the consumer to absorb that costs and its a shame because Audi's are great cars. I guess AFS and even Audi dont think so.
  • I recently just signed with BMW. I have leased 2 Audi's and when I started to talk to Audi, they were so out of the ballpark. I really liked the new A6 also, but for me to stay for a third lease, I wanted to be blown out ofhte water for a lease deal. Not only wasnt I blow out of the water, but I was insulted based on the current lease deals that BMW is offering. I have a lease of $699 a month on a car that MSRP's for $62,000.
  • I agree that Audi's lease program is not good for us as consumers who want Audis. But if AoA is selling/leasing enough vehicles without needing to subsidize the leases, than why should they give away profit? The odd thing is that I don't really think they ARE meeting their sales goals in the USA.

    I believe that offering a more competitive lease program would result in Audis "flying" out of the lots since the product compares so well with BMW and MB. Until they do that, many potential Audi customers will still head to the competition for the "offer that's too good to refuse".
