    I'm hoping I can get somebody to gauge the temperature of an offer I got yesterday. I've never leased a car before, only financed so I'm not 100% sure about everything that goes into the negotiation. I'm in NJ, where sales tax is 7%. The dealership has an S3 they can't seem to move off the lot due to its color. I plan on only putting down taxes and fees.

    LEASE TERMS:
    Length: 36 months
    Miles: 10,000

    ORIGINAL NUMBERS:
    MSRP: $47,910.00
    Offers: -$3,336.20
    Taxes and fees: $3,975.95
    Net: $48,549.75
    Monthly: $566.86
    Residual: $24,434.10


    ADJUSTED OFFER:
    Taxes and fees: $3,341.09
    Monthly: $495.78
    Residual: $24,434.10


    If I work the numbers backwards using a lease calculator I get a vehicle cost of about $42k and a money factor of about .00098, assuming I didn't screw anything up. It seems to be a good deal, correct?

    Assuming this is Premium Plus model?
    .00011 MF and 51% residual for 36/10.

    You can't really solve for two variables.
    Seems like you don't know the price/adjusted CAP cost or the money factor being used.
    You can't solve for one, without knowing the other one.

    But, using the base .00011 MF, you'd need an adjusted CAP of about $42,000 to get the $495/mo. payment.
    $1500 marketing allowance
    $500 loyalty/conquest
    Given those two incentives, the effective discount is about $2910.
    That's about 6% of MSRP, which is good for Audi, but not any sort of blowout special.

    Did you get a breakdown of the $3341, to make sure you aren't paying any garbage fees?

    This seems to be a reasonable/fair deal, but I'd want to know the adjusted CAP and money factor to check all the numbers.

    It seems my response disappeared after I edited it. Forgive me if this ends up in a double post. Yes, it's a Premium Plus model. Can you explain the marketing allowance? Is it available in my area? It doesn't show up on the Audi website, and the dealership only mentioned applying a $500 incentive. Let's assume that both incentives were offered, though. That's $45,910 from $47,910. If I then take the assumed number of $42,221 that I arrived at, and is similar to the number you arrived at as well, then that's 8% off MSRP. That sounds better than the average 6%.

    I know there are a few things in here I don't have specifics on, but is there anything that jumps out at you as unreasonable? Is there something I should go in and negotiate better? I do plan on getting a breakdown of the fees, and plan on asking them to remove the Nitrogen air service fee, which is $295.

    The marketing allowance is a factory to dealer incentive; use the knowledge to negotiate your best price.

    The concerns would likely be bundled into those fees.

    Thanks a bunch. I think I'll likely pull the trigger, assuming the fees are valid or we can come to an agreement on them. I appreciate all your feedback.

    Hi all --

    Received a quote today, and am super new to leasing. Hoping to get a gauge on whether or not this is the kind of deal I think it is -- it's new, and been been on the lot forever, so they appear super anxious to move it.

    2017 Prestige
    Quoted transaction price: $43449
    36 mo/ 15k per year
    $6k down
    $493 per mo.

    Dealer has not yet disclosed taxes, but quotes a doc fee of $549 (I'll get this waived), and registration of $364 (in line with sky-high registration fees in NV).

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    What is the MSRP?
    Never a good idea to put $6000 upfront on a lease.
    Amortizing your upfront amount, that's about $650/mo. That seems like a lot, especially on the outgoing 2017 model.
    Ask the dealer for the adjusted CAP cost.

    Could I get the numbers on a 2017 S3 Prem+ for 36/12 & 36/15 please.
    I've seen a 2017 S3 P+ in WI (I live in IL) for $41k. Seems to be a great advertised price, it has Dynamic, Red Calipers, Audi Guard mats and First Aid kit. I'd hope I could get it for $40k although I'd shoot for $39k and see where I get to. MSRP is $45980. Thanks.

    6% off MSRP is always a good starting point for Audi, but with a limited edition like the RS3 you may not get that.

(Zip code is 33323 if relevant)

    edit- i confirmed on the dealer’s website its actually a premium plus, did not realize...also they have it discounted from msrp to 48,119 on there...

    Prestige trims sometimes aren't always listed that way. They just have the Prestige package added.

    If it's Sign and Drive, the price will have to be a lot lower than listed. (which it should be, considering the dealer incentive and 2017 model).

    thank you for the quick response and the info...i agree that it should be lower than the advertised msrp...i read back thru the forum here and see that its recommended to start at 6% under msrp for discount...but with the dealer incentive on the 2017 what should i be aiming for? also - someone supposedly said they got this same exact car for 480/month sign and drive tax included? is this realistic?

    Doesn't look realistic to me.
    I'd say the dealer is at 6% off minus $2500 to get the $591/mo.+tax price.

    We don't really track pricing. The calculations look to be correct.

    Need January RV/MF plus any rebate or lease cash info on a 2017 S3 ...I believe Prestige (?) as its loaded and msrp is 51,190 (tech package, black optic dynamic package, b&o, etc) and salesperson says he could do a great lease as its the last ‘17 on his lot and they need to move it...quoted 591 + tax for 10k/36 sign and drive (add 25/m for 12k/36)...following up tomorrow for a breakdown on how he arrived at the price...appreciate the help and welcome feedback/advice! (Zip code is 33323 if relevant)

    edit- i confirmed on the dealer’s website its actually a premium plus, did not realize...also they have it discounted from msrp to 48,119 on there...

    .00007 MF and 49% residual for Premium Plus
    Prestige is 48%.
    $2500 marketing allowance
    $1000 Audi loyalty

    Prestige trims sometimes aren't always listed that way. They just have the Prestige package added.

    If it's Sign and Drive, the price will have to be a lot lower than listed. (which it should be, considering the dealer incentive and 2017 model).

    Just to confirm...49% was for 10k/36 or 12k/36 on the premium plus?

    36/10

    Can I get numbers for 2017 S3 Premium Plus, Tech Pack/Black Optic Pack/S Sport Pack/Carbon Pack/
    Looking to purchase end of month, the dealer is in CO but I live in NC. Not sure how the numbers would work for that. Are dealers typically ok with paying for the shipment of the car?

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

    What lease term and how many miles per year?

    You'll likely be on the hook for any shipping costs.

    A friend of mine here in CO bought a Civic Type R last year from a dealer in KY. My friend paid the shipping costs

    2018 Audi S3 - 36m/15k - Florida

    MSRP $53,455

    Selling Price $43,990 + Audi Care $699

    Residual 47% (46% with 1% AC bump)

    MF .00072

    $2,000 down

    Tax In $653/mo

    6% tax

    Wont take MSDs

    Dont ask me how but I got an 18% discount but the residual is so poor im still way over the 1% rule. I told them to make it an even 20% off and I'll sign but they wont budge. This has all been over phone and email in the last 10 days. Do you think going in would improve my changes? Is my/their math correct?

    Any help?!

    Don't think of it as a "1% rule" - not every car can be had for that. It's more of a guideline. And, Audis do not lease that well, at all.

    The cap cost has to be around $45,500 to get $653/mo - I'm guessing the $2K up front isn't covering all the inceptions and the remainder is being added to the selling price.

    Ask them what cap cost they are using, and how they got there from the selling price.

    And, find out what's covered in the $2K - I'm guessing there is large dealer doc fee buried in there, but what else?

    A customer in the showroom is always taken more seriously than one at the end of an email thread.

    That is a massive discount, however. And, you're getting the base MF as well.

    Youre right - They outright admitted they are adding a $995 dealer fee since they are losing their shirt on the sale price of the vehicle. Its all just coming off MSRP because there are no incentives/rebates right now on S3. So I believe its:

    First month $653
    Acq fee $795
    Dealer Fee $995
    Doc, FL, Title, Misc $368

    So they are taking $2k up front and rolling the rest in I reckon

    Is this one of the more legitimate deals youve seen on an S3 recently? Its what I want but sites like leasehackr are making me question the value of the lease, but often times they value getting the "best deal" over the car they are actually in love with...

    I just dont know how much more to push on this deal

    Feel free to move it over, I spaced and put it in here instead - not sure how to switch it

    Just cut and paste into the other thread.

    The doc fee, sadly, is typical for Florida, and claws back some of that 18% discount.

    I don't track individual deals; feel free to read back through this thread and see what others have been able to accomplish.
