2009 Audi A4



  • I live in palo alto and i got the quote from the audi dealer in palo alto. I actually got a little better quote (under invoce) from audi steven creek and i accepted that offer.
    good luck!
  • I also live in SJ and just talked to the sales guy at stevens creek about the cost a new 09. I am also turning in my 2 year lease car in the next 2 months...

    Let me know which model you got and options and price PLEASE, he ran the number for a Prem + and the High end one and with 2500 to 4k down we were still talking about payments of 544 prem + nav so on or the high end model with nav so on for 640.00 a month ea for 3 years.... OUCH


  • Wow! Well, since I haven't bought mine yet I could still technically negotiate. Can I ask what options you got (Premium Plus?, Prestige?, Navigation?, etc), how much the offer was (or how much below invoice) and who you spoke with at Audi Steven's Creek? I wouldn't mind getting another thousand or so off my car!
  • I ordered A4 2.0T + Premium Plus + Rear Side Airbags + Wood Trim. The saleman was very nice and he even waived the $500 deposit. Hopefully he does not change his mind and cancel my order LOL. I have not negotiated my payment plan yet, will probably do 10K down payment + 48 months.
  • Thanks for that fast response :) You said you negotiated under invoice... how much under invoice? Do you remember the name of your salesman? My deposit was $1000 :( If Steven's Creek is giving such a good deal perhaps I could negotiate a better price with my dealership. It'd be great if you remembered your salesman's name! Thank you so much for the info!
  • Anyone have any issues with their A4 ??

    I still have images of friends who own 2000, 2001, 2002 A4's that were nothing but trouble. Having said that, that was also 5+ years ago.

    I saw one on the street and would have to concede it's a good looking car

    The dealer where I get my 2003 A4 1.8 FrontTrak serviced was having an introductory show today for the new A4. Nothing but A4's in the showroom and three out front for test drives.

    I test drove the 2.0 sedan. I loved the way it drove, rode and handled. But in showroom, they had the Avant. Even better in person than the photos. I don't need a wagon but I think it looks great.

    I didn't price shop because I'm not buying until January when my daughter gets her license and I'll let her drive the 2003.

    We have 4 Audi dealers around Cleveland. Should be interesting to see if any are doing deals once the novelty has worn off. Also, I want to drive the new TL before I decide.

    Has anyone else checked out the Avant? I'm not sure how much availibility there is. When I want one I'll have the flexibility to order it.
  • Anyone know what the money factor is for a 36 month lease on the A4 Prem Plus?

    57% residual as stated above? I am trying to work up a deal with dealer now.
  • it was $500 under invoice and the saleman name is ramon.
  • "Anyone have any issues with their A4 ?? "

    I had some really stupid issues with my first two A4's. But in August of '05 I bought number three, a 2 liter, manual, sports suspension... and chipped it at 1k miles.

    Now just over three years later, the car has yet to even sqeak or rattle in the winter... just scheduled service stops (although I do 5 k oil changes). Gas mileage on trips is > 35 miles per gallon. I even manage > 31 mpg with a kayak on the roof.

    Just drove the '09 Avant and it is mighty nice looking. The only thing that has stopped me from ordering one is that it is auto only. I just can't see spending $$ for a friggin' auto, even if it is a nice auto (much better than the previous auto).

    Anyhow, I suspect that the quality of new Audis is now probably as good as anything built in Korea.
  • Would anyone know if the A4-2009 2.0T has a rear seat safety curtain as standard equipment. The sales brochure online is vague. I do realize that a rear seat air bag is extra.
  • This is the quote I got from the dealer; we are talking new lease here, but seems a bit high... 2009 A4 2.0, I also asked about the pull ahead program and was told it's only for customers that bought there car in Dec time frame....

    MSRP: 43,800
    Model: 8K256l - PRESTIGE, Nav, Prem Plus, so on

    2500 down, 540 a month for 36 months ( 10k ) miles a year

    Sorry I didnt get the full print out of the quote

  • Here in Los Angeles, I got my A4 with Prestige, drive select, and navigation, at $45,325, which is somewhere between 3-5% over invoice, and $1000 under MSRP. The dealer claimed that his true invoice was higher than my figures, and showed me an identical car's invoice to prove it. Probably a trick, but there was indeed a plus $700 difference on the document he showed me compared to the published invoice price.

    I test drove both the 2.0 T and the 3.2, and enjoyed the acceleration on the 2.0 a lot more. The 3.2's torque doesn't kick in until about 3000 RPM and so felt a little family-car like to me. I vote for the 2.0 engine. The car's handling is amazing, just very tight. I bought white with a black interior, which looks better without wood trim. However, I saw a red with beige interior, that looked fabulous with the blonde wood.

    The only thing that is disappointing on the 2.0 is that the tail pipes are both on the same side, and NOT chromed. I can't figure why they didn't chrome them. Does anyone know if you can have that done by the dealership?

    Should arrive in port in mid October. Can't wait to get it, and get on a windy road.
  • The paper catalogue says only that rear side air bags are an option. The dealer told me they considered the option unsafe if you have children in child seats in the back.
  • Thanks for the heads up on what you paid. I'm thinking of going in and offering $500 over invoice and hoping they'll settle at $750. Looking to order a Premium Plus Avant with the 18" sports package in meteor grey (that color is sharp!). I really wish they'd offer the S-Line pkg in the Premium tiers but I guess that would take away the Prestige business.

    Funny you mention the exaust not being chromed as that's one of the first things I noticed as well. I would think there will be an after market kit for the chrome tips. One nice thing about the Avant though is that the exaust is split and not on the same side.

    You can get tips in the Audi parts department for 100 bucks. I agree the 2.0 exhuast looks cheap...but it can be fixed easy with those tips
  • I Couldn’t agree with you more on the exhaust pipes. I purchased an A4 2.0 here in Atlanta, and the only complaint is the exhaust. I purchased the chrome tips yesterday and installed them......I must say the back side of the car looks 10 times better.

    On another note...The dealer gave me a cord for the IPOD which does not work as the one they provided was for older models....weird part is that every thing hooked up correctly, but still wont work. The dealer has ordered the correct cord but there is a 10 day wait......Anyone else have this problem?
  • Hammer, I think you should hold out at $500 over invoice. A second dealer around here offered me that after I had already agreed to about $1600 over invoice and made a deposit. Bah! :confuse:
  • Are we talking Edmunds web site invoice amount or the "invoice" the dealer showed you?
    My dealer is saying that their cost is $1,200 over the Edmunds amount.
    Thanks in advance
  • In my case, true invoice was $616 over Edmunds invoice, so $1200 over Edmunds sounds high. Two dealers have now stated to me that they are getting charged for something above Edmunds, maybe advertising charges, which accounts for the discrepancy.

    I now see I could have got the car at $500 over the dealer-quoted invoice.
