Hi - my lease is about up on an 2014 Audi A4 Quattro premium plus (sport and cold weather packages, plus walnut inlay), manual transmission. It has less than 14k miles on it (!) and the recent pre-trade-in inspection turned up only the need to replace a tire and a rim. I think the manual transmission makes it less valuable as a trade in because I am the only dinosaur who still loves to drive stick (CarMax didn't beat the lease residual value). Any idea if there is equity to be gained, or can I at least expect them to waive the charge for the tire and rim if I am getting another Audi?
