Audi Q7 Lease Questions

  • Please let me know how you make out. Is the $2,999 total out of pocket? also did you price out a 24 month lease?
  • The $2,999 does not include taxes or first month. They are only offering a 36month lease. You can go to any audi website and click on current deals to see what they are offering. I guess my question is, how good of a deal is this?
  • Greetings Car_Man:

    You seem like one of the most knowledgeable guys re: Audi Q7s, and I have a few questions you may be able to help me with.

    I am interested in leasing a 3.6 Premium (MSRP $53,230 including infotainment; technology, third row, wood steering and sycamore paint)as a x-mas gift for my wife, for 36 months, 12K miles.

    What do you think is reasonable discount off the MSRP? Have you seen any dealers eliminating the disposition fee ($350)? How 'bout the security deposit (assuming very good credit)?

    Last question, do you think it is better to wait 'till the weekend before x-mas to get a better pricing, as it approaches month end sales boggies?

    Really appreciate feedback. Trying to decide soon.
  • Hi - follow up question. Do you know if Audi offers European Delivery for the Q7 under a lease option? Discount is approx. 5% off MSRP, but I think it is only available for financing or all cash options.

    Please advise. Thx.
  • same question here. what is the reasonable price to pay over invoice? (dealer's invoice) or reasonable discount off of the MSRP for 3.6 premium with sunroof package?

    Also when they try to show you their invoice should I trust to that # or it's a fake?

    based on MSRP $49,270... admands invoice $45,529. is $47,500 do you think reasonable?

    thanks in advance
  • here is more info

    MSRP $49270, selling price $47500, $656.81 per month with NYC sales tax in the payment, $2205.31 due at signing including refundable security deposit of $675. If security is waived due to excellent credit, total due at signing is $1530.31.

    AFS charges a security deposit regardless of credit score. It is waived only if you have had a previous account with them or as part of a special program. In lieu of a security deposit, the MF can be increased by .00015. The disposition fee is also a requirement the dealership has no control over. AFS will not fund a contract without a dispositon fee included..

    To answer a previous question about discounting the car, it depends what it has in it. Is it a base 5 seater with no roof? Sure I'll take a shorter deal on that car. You asked about a 3.6 Premium with Tech and Infotainment. These cars are tough to come by. The technology package was unavailable to order for almost 2 months because they ran out of back up cameras. Hence, that car will command more profit.

    Are the 4.2's (not premium) delivered with nav but without the 4 zone climate control? It seems everything that is in the NYC area has 19 inch wheels, 4 zone, cold weather (which is really just a ski sack as the 4.2 comses standard with heated seats. By the way, what are the residuals for 12k/15k 36 mos? Please let me know if you can help.
  • Thank you for your feedback!

    Heated seats are not standard on the base 4.2 model. They are part of the cold weather package. The base 4.2's do not have navigation standard either. The base 4.2 is meant to let you pick options ala'carte so to speak. The 4.2 starts @ 49,900, and the premium is 59,900.
  • Are these rates still valid in December and do they also apply to the non-premium models?

    I'm having a hard time justifying the cost differential between the premium and standard models.
  • I'm thinking about a lease on a 3.6 Q7. Does anyone have info on current moneyfactor's for 24 and 36 mo? Also, I would probably need to prepay mileage as I drive ~22k per year. Anyone know what Audi charges for prepaid mileage? Is this typically a fixed by Audi amount or can dealers set their own price? Any info is appreciated. Thanks...
  • Hi jim5pen. Through January 2nd, Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Q7 3.6 Premium with 10,000 miles per year are .00113 and 59%, respectively. This lease program is available on any version of the 3.6 Premium, regardless of how it is equipped. Like most manufacturers' advertised lease payments, I suspect that Audi's advertised lease for the Q7 leaves a little meat on the bone so to speak in terms of its selling price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing the vehicle that you want. Shop around and negotiate the lowest possible selling price on the Q7 that you want and then have the dealer that you are working with use the aforementioned lease program to calculate its monthly payment.

  • Hello dazdbyit. The $2,999 down payment that is mentioned in Audi's current advertised lease for the Q7 is entirely a capitalized cost reduction. If you were to lease this truck using the same parameters as the advertisement, at lease signing in addition to the $2,999 I believe that you would have to pay the truck's first month's payment, a security deposit of $550, and Audi Financial Services' $575 acquisition fee for a total of around $4,673.

  • Thanks rbasso. I am not personally all that familiar with what the market is like for the Q7 right now, selling price-wise. You should be able to get a good idea of how much you will have to pay for this truck by stopping by the following discussion and checking out how much other community members have paid for similar trucks lately: "Audi Q7: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

    Individual dealers do not have the authority to waive the disposition fee that you would have to pay if you leased this truck through Audi Financial Services, but if you lease another Audi through them when your Q7 lease expires you will not have to pay this charge. Individual dealers do not have the authority to waive AFS' security deposit requirement either. It will waive your vehicle's security deposit in exchange for an increase of .00015 in the money factor that is used to calculate your vehicle's monthly payment if you want.

    Generally speaking, the later in the money one purchases or leases a new vehicle the more willing dealers seem to be to negotiate.

  • Greetings audi_man. I personally think that the $47,500 price that you mentioned is a reasonable target to shoot for. For feedback on how much you should pay for this truck right now try stopping by the "Prices Paid" discussion that I mentioned in my previous post. You can find out the dealer invoice price of the vehicle that you want before you visit any dealers by looking up the exact model that you want in the following section of this site: Edmunds.com - New Vehicle Pricing.

  • Hey audi_man. Both this truck's selling price and money factor look good to me. If you like it, I personally don't see any reason not to pull the trigger on this deal.

  • Hi 0audilicious0. Audi's lease program for non-Premium Q7 models is different than it is for Premium models. You never mentioned how long you want to lease for or what mileage allowance you need, so for now I will assume that you want a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Through January 2nd, Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Q7 3.6 non-Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00074 and 56%, respectively.

  • Welcome luvcarzrich. 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.

    Here is the specific information on this truck's current lease program that you're looking for. Through January 2nd, Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2007 Audi Q7 3.6 non-Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00074 and 66%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00074 and 56%. Audi is supposed to introduce its new January lease program tomorrow. Please feel free to post a reminder in this discussion for me in a few days and I will gladly give you an idea of what its new program for this truck is like.

    I don't believe that dealers are allowed to mark-up the price that Audi charges for additional miles purchased at lease signing, but I don't know exactly how much it charges per mile.
