    Hi lansa. I don't believe that Audi is currently providing any dealer cash on the 2008 Q7.

  • Dear All, I've just recently joined this forum and need some help. I would like to lease a 2008 Q7. I noticed a few days ago that Audi has a new lease special for the summer in my market area - 2008 Q7 3.6 Premium with Convenience Package ($51,075 MSRP)at $499/month for 36 months with the following terms:
    Down Payment: $2,699
    Refundable Sec. Deposit: $0
    Acquisition fee: capitalised ($575)
    1st month's payment: $499
    Purchase Option at end $21,537
    10,000 miles/year ($0.25/mile over)
    Disposition fee $350

    These numbers sound too good to be true. Has anyone taken advantage of this offer? If so what's the catch and what should I watch out for? I know for one that it does not include dealer contribution and other dealer fees. How much should these typically be? I plan to lease next week.

    Welcome perosticks. Manufacturers' official advertised lease payments are definitely not too good to be true. On the contrary, savvy consumers who shop around in areas that have a decent level of competition are usually able to beat automakers advertised payments. Negotiate as low a selling price as possible on the new Q7 that you want. Chances are you will be able to beat this deal.

    Howdy -- I'm iin the same boat. My Treg lease exires late July. Been going back and forth with my local Audi dealer. On a Premium with Convenience Package, Panorama and Nav (MSRP at $54,725). I've got him at about invoice $51,400). With $3000 out of pocket (this includes 3% sales tax which we pay all upfront in my state), I'm at $699/month 36 months and 10K miles per year. I'm gonna role the dice and hope the incentives get better in July (Audi Q7 sales have totally sucked this month -- so I've been told). I'm hoping they bring back the dealer cash they had this spring.

    Good luck and please post any info/results you get.

    We ae looking at almost the same numbers, I am down to 699 mo with 1109 due at signing for 36 months, conv package, nav, upgraded wheels but no tech package.
    If anybody has a clue of their july incentives please let me know I am kind of afraid to blindly rol the dice.

    With the summer event that ends on July 2nd, what are the cash incentives from Audi Financial? Also, a couple of Audi dealerships have stated invoice prices about $1k higher than what I see on edmunds (and claims will show me paperwork to verify those invoice prices).

    I'm looking at a Q7 3.6 Premium with convenience, navigation, sunroof, and 19" wheels.

    MSRP: $55,525
    Edmunds invoice is: $51,565
    Dealer said invoice is: $52,581

    What is a good offer price on this car? $500 below the edmunds invoice price?
  • rdxerrdxer Posts: 33
    yup, seams pretty similar. What's your MSRP? Is tax included with each monthly payment (a use tax) or do you pay it all upfront (a sales tax, like I have)?

    The money factor calculates to 1.68% with a 50% residual -- is this the same for you?

    I understand where you're coming from about not wanting to wait. This is my 2nd Treg and I've been leaning toward the X5. If I'm going to have a third VW/Audi product (and more ups and downs) it's got to be a super sweet deal otherwise I'll cough up a few more bucks and go for the Bimmer.
  • On the Audi Vehicle Invoice the Dealer adds certain charges to inflate the invoice amount. For example, in Southern California they add these additional charges:

    "Southern California Audi Ad Assoc.": $449.65
    "SCADA2 Audi DAA": $272.75
    "Preparation and Inspection": $195.00

    So that's $917.45 of added charges that Edmunds doesn’t show.

    Audi is currently offering $1,000 Customer Cash, so $500 below the Edmunds Invoice price would be a good price in my opinion.

    Thanks for this info on the added charges.

    hi guys Using edmunds guide to calculate bottom line monthly payment ( ) I came up with this numers using invoice as cap cost.
    Please let me know if my calculations are correct.
    10k miles, 36 mo Q7 premium nav, conv & panoramic roof.

    MSRP 53825
    INVOICE 50111
    Residual Factor 50%
    Residual Value 26917.5
    Money Factor 0.00006
    36 mo depreciation 23,193.50
    Lease Terms 36
    Monthly Depreciation 644.2638889
    Cap cost + residual 77,028.50
    (cc + res) X MF 4.62171
    MF pmt + mo dep 648.89
    Tax 6% 38.9
    Bottom Line Mo Pmt 687.79

    Is this the lowest possible monthly payment on this truck with 0 down just tax, tag, title and dealer fee due at signing?
    How much more would it be for audi care?

    I am interested in possibly leasing a Q7 this month. Does anyone have the various lease factors for July (money factor, residual, etc.)? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  • kp22kp22 Posts: 20
    In response to my previous post asking for July lease factors, I spoke with a local dealership in Upstate NY who told me over the phone that the July money factor and residual value for a 12k/36mth lease on a 3.6 Premium was .00297 and 42%, respectively. They also told me that there is a $5,000 cash rebate available. The lease factors seem awful. Even with the $5,000 the numbers are awful. Anybody else have any recent experiences to share?
  • rdxerrdxer Posts: 33
    Yup, I really wanted a Q7 but was also not impressed with the numbers. Got a great deal on an X5 ($2k below invoice). Overall, for the about the same MSRP, the X5 was less, with the same lease terms (with MF@ .0024 and resid @ 56%). Plus, free maintenance.

    Try this dealer in PA - Audi of Willow Grove, they offer $10k off msrp on 2008 models right now. Good luck!
  • Currently nearing the end of the Land Rover LR3 lease and have decided that the Audi Q7 will work well for me. Talked to the dealer and got the following offer on a 24mth/15k lease:

    MSRP = $46,175
    Sales Price = $43,900
    Initial Payment = $3,000 towards first payment, etc.
    Residual = 58%
    Rate = .00036

    Payments worked out a $766.21 which worked for me BUT here comes the kicker....they said that this was based on lease rates before July 7! Evidently since I don't need the vehicle until the end of July these lease rates cannot be applied. The dealer said they would contact the Regional Manager to get more info on future lease rates but they called me back and said they could not get those rates for leases during the last 3 weeks of July. According to them Audi has NO lease deals for the last 3 weeks and they don't anticipate getting any more deals until August when they will start selling 2009 models. Does this seem kosher? Should I try another local Audi dealer. My problem is that the money factors for 24mth leases seem to be really bad this year and Audi was one of the few that had a decent offer. Land Rover didn't have anything due to their purchase by Tata and BMW, MB, etc. have HORRIBLE rates for 24mth leases. Yes...I know I should look at other terms but my company allows me to get a new lease every two years so why should I agree to a longer term? Max payment can be $800 per month.

    This sounds legit -- I was told the same thing (before leasing an X5). They want to sell, not lease Q7s. My guess is due to the declining SUV resale market they don't want to be stuck with overpriced vehicles down the road.
  • rdxerrdxer Posts: 33
    meant to add...
    my understanding is that there is a large ($5K amount, I've heard) of dealer cash available on sales, not leases. Maybe you want to look at third-party leasing companies (try leasecompare*com) who would buy the car (so you can take advantage of the dealer cash) and then lease it back to you. Not sure if this makes sense, but you can look online to check it out.
  • tlecotleco Posts: 34
    Residual value - for 24 months is 58%? I had mine with 36 months 15k at 59% and 50% with Audi care.
    Money factor was .00006
    Things changed but one thing for sure should get more discount on the car. AT least $5000 Off
