2016 A5 Cabriolet Premium Plus 2.0T quattro
Tech package
Comfort package
19" wheel package
Wood inlays
All weather mats
first aid kit

MSRP - $58,475
Discount ($1,500)
Taxable fees 615
Doc Fee 799
Tax 1,898
Non-tax fee 214
Price $60,500

The $1,500 off invoice seems low, and the Doc Fee seems high.

    Yes... discount is small and doc fee is high.

    About 5% off, then $800 more (to make up for the doc fee), and that would be a fair price.

    I'm looking to buy a used 2016 A5 Premium Plus Cabriolet, Ibis White, Black roof, beige seats in a light grey interior. 10,500 miles. Has Technology and Comfort (with the neck warmer, yay!) packages. Technology includes Navigation and Audi's MMI communication packages. Walnut inlays along the sides of the doors. Dealer is asking $38,500. He just got it in and I'm ready to buy. This is a lease return, I think. Dealer doc fee in MD is $299.

    This price is about $1,000 less than what KBB says is "market value." What do you think, fair price? Should I haggle or take it?

    I'll be trading in my 2005 Nissan 350Z Touring Roadster with only 36,000 miles. Private sales are going for 10-12k, I don't know what the dealer is willing to offer, though he said he would "love" to have this car. (My mechanic who has done the oil changes etc. for the last few years also said if I ever want to sell, he wants to buy, so maybe I should give him first crack at it.)

    No question I want the Audi, assuming the test drive goes well (we have been in communication only by email at this point, as I've been out of town). They are hard to find as is, especially in the color and with all the packages I want. So - no haggle, a little haggle, or haggle hard?
