  • I got a quote for 4% over invoice in Clearwater FL to preorder one.
  • What is the invoice price of the A5 that you paid 4% over? I just ordered one here in Washington and want to see how bad I got ripped off.

    I doubt many dealers will have to discount A5's. The V8 S5's are on backorder for most of the country. Audi's new coupe is an incredibly hot car, and most people will pay MSRP.

    That's been my experience when shopping for the A5- the price is the price- no haggling or discounts of any kind. The car is too new.
  • bsc1114bsc1114 Posts: 25
    I bought the A5 this past Friday- had to pay full price since the car is so new- I don't really care- it is a hot car. Brilliant red, black interior, Premium, Tech, Nav, upgraded sound sytem. It'll take 3 months to come in. Can't wait!!!!
  • Hi.. I've been offered local pick up of the A5 here in Phoenix. I'm looking for lease numbers as to the best of my knowledge I tried using the S5 lease numbers to get approximate values. Here's what is available on the lot:

    A5 3.2 COUPE 2-DR 6-SPD QUATTRO
    BRILLIANT BLACK
    FRONT PLATE FILLER PANEL
    BANG & OLUFSEN SOUND SYSTEM
    MILANO LEATHER SEATS (Cinnamon Brown)
    AUDI DVD NAVIGATION PLUS
    19" 5-SPOKE ALLOY WHEELS W/ PERFORMANCE TIRES
    PREMIUM PACKAGE

    $47,665

    Can someone help me out here.. what should I be looking at lease wise here?
  • rjlaerorjlaero Posts: 659
    Your looking at mid-high 700's for an A5 lease like that with 3-5k down.

    S5's are 900's.
  • I was told $979 for a loaded A5 with no money down- 36 month lease
  • That's insane. I just picked up Q7 $54k MSRP 3.6 premium with convenience, adaptive, bose, sunroof, rear camera thing (I think that's convenience), with $0 down, they paid for fees and first month payment, they paid off remaining 2 months towards my previous Audi lease so I'm out, with Audi care, lease (with tax included) $772.
    Audi Chandler, AZ.

    Fully loaded A5 is $47k. The price difference is absolutely crazy.

    What are prices being quoted in Chicago area for A5s? I've seen several around but haven't driven nor gotten into pricing discussions yet. Should I expect (and resist) markup from MSRP? Any plans of leasing support? Hard to imagine anything decent with delivery from orders said to be Aug / Sep. Have yet to see any on the street yet but am in lust! ;)

    Just ordered an A5 last week in Chicago for $900 under MSRP, that's all I could get them down. Delivery late May/early June. Counting the days....
  • packrfanpackrfan Posts: 50
    prmvmr - Congrat's! What dealership did you buy from? Can you advise on the specifics of the deal, e.g. options, final negotiated price + TTL = OTD price, buy or lease (if lease, what MF, length, miles, etc.). There are not a lot of data points available so this is great for the forum. Thnx for the info! Happy quattro-ing

    Hi, I just ordered an A5 with S line package with all the bells and whistles in chicago. Paying MSRP.
    Anyone have info on lease rates, money factor etc.
    thanks
  • shivanshivan Posts: 30
    Not sure about the details of residuals/ money factor but I know they are horrible compared to BMW rates. btw what delivery date did they give you? Did the dealership have an upcoming allocation or are you in a line for the car? thanks
  • prmvmrprmvmr Posts: 3
    packrfan - I'm a Bronco fan, so not sure you want my info! Dealer asked me to keep location to myself but I can tell you it was in the Western Suburbs. A5, Automatic, Premium Package, Meteor Gray. Paid $43,400 (MSRP $44,300), right around $46,500 after taxes, etc.
  • packrfanpackrfan Posts: 50
    thnx for info. since inventory at dealers is limited, assume you place an order? if so, when's delivery scheduled? at least your're not a bears fan
  • Hi folks,

    Can anyone tell me what work is needed to make a 2008 A5 compliant in Canda from the US?

    Thank you in advance.
  • prmvmrprmvmr Posts: 3
    Yep, placed the order at the end of February and expect delivery end of May. Good timing to get it out on the road when the weather is better.
  • It is NICE! I have to say it is a sweet ride. I really am not too into fast cars and all that stuff but boy this one gives me the chill. They only have 1 in their dealer. They said that not all dealers have this car either. They didn't really spend too much time telling us about the car cuz they know it's not available I guess. Pretty much just gave us the key and let us drove it out the lot.

    The sales also mentioned that these cars are selling about 90K Euro in Europe and so Audi really prefer selling it over there than over here cuz they get more money for the same car. I went to Audi Europe and UK website and they are indeed higher prices then the US. Also she said the Europeans mostly want the manual one so if you order the automatic one it will be faster.

    It is a nice car but I probably will just go with my second choice. I need to keep reminding myself it's just a way to get me between work and home...
  • is it that bad of a car that no ones buying?
    or
    are peopel just not having the opportunity to buy one?
  • After 3 Different orders, I settled on a Black One instead of the Deep Sea Blue I opted for. The car was sold, but the first buyer backed out (just got laid off).

    Anyway, I paid sticker with the free Audi Car Package (like a $850 Value). But, this was when the A5 had very limited availability. Now, it is still limited, but still somewhat are. I would expect to pay sticker anyway.

    Good Luck
  • I recently spoke to two dealers, one in Schaumburg, IL and one in Naperville, IL. The cars are in limited supply still but you should be able to get one for just under sticker due to the economy now and that inventories, while still tight, are not as tight as they were 6 months ago. You may have to wait for an order if you do not like the options they have on the few that are on their lots, if any. On-line you can search inventories within a certain mile radius and this should be helpful if you are willing to travel a bit or have it transported. I drove 100 miles to get mine as it was optioned perfectly and was a phenomenal deal - they needed to sell more cars on 12/31 to get their bonus.

    A few messages above, it was questioned why people aren't buying these. These cars are highly desirable but sales are limited primarily due to Audi's allocation limits to the U.S. An order generally takes 4 months and if you have to have it today, you are limited to the few the dealer has on hand, if they have any.
  • Hey carcrazed!
    i was just wondering. what was the price for your A5? with such a new car, i don't have a target price. :(
    and in the washington dc area we have about 20 in the lots of the about 6 or so dealers. that should help the negotiations in my favor?? :confuse:
    most of the cars here are similarly equiped with nav tech adn premium package. most are auto trans and fewer with the S line package.

    Thanks
  • Hello goldendragon,

    Right now in Chicago I don't think one can do better than $2k off of a new one that is on the lot regardless of the options. One of the Audi dealer told me that the deals are reviewed by Corporate so they are hesitant to take too much off and would rather throw in for free some things of value (I don't know if this is true or not, though). I think it is worth trying to negotiate say $1k off and have them throw in the Audi Care maintenance package ($650) and possibly paint protection for free (assuming you would like this).

    the best way to do this I think is to know the options that you would like and call a dealer that you are least likely to buy from. Yes, least likely as this will be your starting point. Ask for the Sales manager and indicate another dealer in your area is willing to give you the car you want for $1k off with free Audi care and ask them if they can beat it. the way to pull this off is you have to sound credible. If they think you are just shopping price and do not have a real motivation to work with them, they may just brush you off.

    I have tried this method on my last four car purchases and once you have a price from one dealer, you just call the next sales manager ending with the dealers you are most interested in.

    I really don't know the deals in DC but you will find out pretty quickly with this method.

    Good luck and please keep me posted.

    Total BS.. Audi can't tell their dealers what to sell a car for... either high or low..

    Nice to see that prices are coming down, though... the A5 is a spectacular looking car..

  • I bought today a 09 Audi A5 loaded as follows to tune of $48,115.
    Premium Package, Navigation & Cinnamon Milano Leather.
    I paid $45,384 which is suppose to be $800 over invoice?
    I believe I did great just one small down fall car has 390 miles on it.
    Your opinion is appreciated! I also got 4.94% for 60 months.
  • What are the Customer Cash rebates?
  • its only $1500. but its better than nothing
  • It seems like ppl lately are getting around ~$1k off MSRP on A5's. In regards to the $1,500 cash rebate, can I simply expect dealers to theoretically grant $1K PLUS the $1,500 cash rebate off MSRP ($3K off MSRP)??
