Audi A4 Lease Questions



  • So I live in Boston and am looking to lease an Audi 2011 a4 (premium plus). December looked like a good time to lease but I obviously missed that ... I would like to lease in the next month or so, but want to wait until there is another deal. Does anyone know when a "good" time would be ... Presidents weekend? March? Should I wait until the 30th/31st of each month, or does that even make a difference? I have great credit and I've been following leasing deals on the forum... Would it be possible to lease that kind of audi (quattro) for around $550 a month (taxes included)?

    I'm now on my fourth A4...1996, 2002, 2008 and now maybe a 2011.

    I've been offered an A4 with MSRP of 35225....they are asking 1680 drive off incl first month, payment of 398/month including 9.75% CA sales tax. 42 month lease/10K. the selling price is 32281, or 1500 under invoice...seems good, but what do i know!

    they have also offered to reimburse me for my final month of my current lease (about 450).

    i think i have 750 in loyalty cash (or is it 500)?

    questions: can i do better and should i wait until end of march, when my lease is due? after all, the 450 they are paying me for my car should be discounted off the car price, right? also, i've paid for this month - still have two weeks left.

    and finally, when negotiating a lease, should i tell them about being a current owner? it would seem better to negotiate, then hit them with the loyalty rebate.


  • Hello manku. Audi's current lease program isn't terrible, but it isn't exactly anything to rush into either. I personally wouldn't waste a payment on my current car to get a new one now.

    Being a current Audi owner will definitely work to your advantage. Audi is currently providing a $750 owner loyalty cash incentive on leases of the 2011 A4. To me, it doesn't really matter when you mention the fact that you are a current owner. Just negotiate a selling price that's as close to dealer invoice as possible before the subtraction of any available cash incentives.

    Question: Audi Financial Services money factor and residual for a 36 month and 42 month lease

    Please, Thanks

    I'm in the market to lease a 2011 Audi A4 2.0T Premium 4dr Front-wheel Drive FrontTra, 12K miles per year, for a 36 month term.

    I live in southern california, and have a credit score over 750. Is there any way I can get a lease for $350 per month?

    For the vehicle quoted above, with bluetooth/home link and Ipod connection options, I've been quoted a MF of .00083 and a residual value of 55%. Thanks.

    SO this is what Audi dealer is offering me

    A4 2.0 Sedan- Standard
    Dark grey
    Ipod cable
    Heated seats

    MSRP 34,225

    15,000 miles
    42 month lease
    $420 a month plus 9.75% tax
    Down $1900 + $420 + tax, includes title and registration
    4 Year Warranty or 50,000
    option to buy additional miles for 0.15 cents a mile up to 3,000 a year
    Audi care $790 for full lease

    I feel like I can do better, would this be a reasonable counteroffer?

    15,000 miles
    36 month lease
    $375 plus tax a month
    Down 1,5000 +375 plus tax, including title and registration
    4 year warranty or 50,000
    Free audi care
    I will probably buy 5,000 miles for 750

    Let me know if I can negotiate for less or if this is outrageous counteroffer?

    Hi taxman10. Audi is running especially attractive deals on 39 month leases this month. That's the route that I would go if I was in your situation.

    Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 A4 Sedan Premium Plus with quattro and 12,000 miles per year are .00072 and 51%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Hi jasonp18. I haven't crunched the numbers, but I highly doubt that you will be able to get this car for $350 per month with nothing down including tax. I would be happy to work up a sample payment on the exact car that you are interested in for you if you provide me with its full MSRP and selling price, or at least its MSRP and invoice price.

    Thanks! So msrp looks like 34,835 and invoice is 32,461 for the options on the premiums I've been seeing. That includes the destination fee.

    One dealer quoted me 997 in drive off fees, and another about 1,600 (which includes bank acq fee, dips fee, registration, etc).

    I also noticed that the factory invoice includes about $650 in inspection and advertising fees, which I really don't want to pay.

    Finally, I have an aol best deal quote for 1100-1200 below invoice, and I'd be willing to do up to 1,000 cap reduction. Thanks again.

    Car Man -
    Can you provide the 39 month special Money factor and lease rates for the premium plus Quattro?

    Looking for both 12k and 15k miles per year.

    I was unaware of the 39 month special and wondering how it compares to the the march rates on a 36 month lease.

  • cbokercboker Posts: 14
    Hey Guys I have been shopping around for a 2011 A4 prestige and I got a quote today that seemed absolutely ridiculous. I am slightly upside down in my current loan and It looks like I have to roll about 1,500 into it. Also I am purchasing a house in a few months so I asked them to roll in the 2,544 due at signing as well. The MSRP on the prestige is 41,800 and I am rolling a total of 4,044 into that coming out to roughly 45k and that is with out negotiating the price on the car. They quoted me a monthly payment of 697 a month - is this not ridiculously high considering I have good credit?

    Trading in 07 350z for 15,500
    Rolling in 1,500 to the lease
    Rolling in 2,544.00 due at signing
    Monthly Payment: 697.00
  • cbokercboker Posts: 14
    Hey Triathlete - I am actually looking to lease the same exact vehicle can you possibly provide a little more details? Curious what you put down, what your state sales tax is, final negotiated price, and monthly payment. This would be great as I am trying to find out what to expect for a monthly payment.

    thanks in advance..
  • I just leased a 2011 Audi A4 prem plus w/ 89 miles on saturday.. its a bad idea to do these sort of things with a 3 and 5 year old...their patience and my patience was worn and the salesman and his manager did a fantasic job holding us hostage. LOL
    So the dealer knew first hand that I couldn't and didn't want a payment over $500. Some how he hypnotized me into agreeing to $600 a month + pay $1,000 cash deduction because the car I wanted had "MORE" features however, there weren't any new features than I didnt already have on a 04 Navigator. I had negative equity, they offered $13,300 and I owed $15,500. So I was suppose to carry over $2,200. Looking over the contract it doesn't add up can any one give any help and tell me how bad they screwed me over?

    Sticker price on the car said $37,100
    Online Ad $35,987
    Contract reads agreed upon value $39,562.62 (I'm assuming they took the 37,100 on the MSRP and added the negative equity to the Value of the Vehicle (isn't that illegal to document it that way? and Isn't it illegal to advertise a car for a certain price and then mark the price up (before fees)? )
    $695 Acquisition Fee
    $1298.77 Sales Tax (Gross Receipts Tax)
    $93.50 Initial Licenses, Tital and Reg. Fee
    $399.00 Document Fee (where did this come from!?)
    $800.00 Audi Care
    $42,848.89 Gross Capitalized Cost
    $1000 Capitalized Cost Reduction
    =41,848.89 Adjusted Capitalized cost
    $17,437.00 Residual Value (isn't this a lot for a 12,000 miles for 42 months)
    $24,411.89 Depreciation and and Amortized amounts
    $1220.29 Rent Charge
    $25,632.18 Total of Base Mothly Payments
    42 Lease payments
    $610.29 Base Monthly Payment & Total Monthly Payment

    Any help on this calculations would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure of the interest rate that they gave... or anything.... they defitnitely took advantage of my kids patience and me being in a hurry to leave without the car.. and come back.. they said it will take 5 mins for the paperwork and thats seriously all it took because I was ignorant and mentally exhausted from my kids that I didnt take time to read and look and calculate the fees that magically appeared when "we dont have bogus fees like Infiniti or Lexus, Ive worked there" that came out of the General Sales managers mouth.

    I wanted to share the details of the deal I got on my new car to see if I did well. The car is a 2011 A4 with the Premium Plus Package with the 18" Sports Package ($1450 MSRP), Bang and Olufsen Stereo ($850 MSRP), Chrome Exhaust Tips ($125) and All-Weather Mats ($130? MSRP). The total MSRP for the car is $40,105.

    For a 39 month lease (which he said gives me the best deal) with $0 down payment and 12K miles per year I am paying $519 a month which includes the NY sales tax of 8.375% included in the payment. I need to give him 1st month payment, bank fee and doc fee of about a total of $1600 at signing. He said that if I want the wheel and tire hazard insurance ($1000) and the audicare ($800) we can roll that in for another $45 (approx) per month on top of the $519. How did I do?
  • cbokercboker Posts: 14
    that sounds like a great deal to me...they wanted 697 a month to lease me a prestige - still waiting on the breakdown. That is with me rolling in due at signing and negative equity (total of 4k additional) and the cars MSRP is around 41k.
  • scoot84scoot84 Posts: 21

    That sounds like an incredible deal. I was just doing the calculations on a similar car minus the sport package and by my math a good deal would be $585 / month on 39 month lease with 12k miles per year. What dealership gave you that deal? Can you share?
  • @ Warrenh1 - What are they saying that the Residual Value of the car will be after 39 months?
  • warrenh1warrenh1 Posts: 2
    I believe the residual was 50%. I used several online lease calculators and couldn't get his numbers, but I don't really care. I've known the guy for years and he always does right by me...I just thought I'd check it with you guys to make sure.
  • Thanks, I was trying to compare your residual value to what I got on my Audi A4 Prem plus ... I think they sat mine way low.. $17437 in 42 months... prob why my payment is $610 a month
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    No problem jasonp18. Thanks for the additional information, jasonp18. Let's say hat you were able to get this car for $750 over invoice. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2011 Audi A4 2.0T Premium FTK that has an MSRP of $34,835 and a selling price of $33,211 through Audi Financial Services for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year are $435.

    If the selling price drops to dealer invoice, the payment would drop to around $414.

    I'd be happy to help you out, cjacob6. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2011 A4 Premium Plus quattro with 15,000 miles per year are .00072 and 49%, respectively.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    Location- Right outside of Philadelphia
    Manufactures MSRP sticker-$43,000 and change
    Options- Premium plus Quattro: $37,500
    Sports package-$1, 450
  • I got a quote from two dealers on Long Island, NY for a 39 month lease with ipod connection but no other options, no money down, paying taxes and license. $467 per month. Is this reasonable?
  • Yep, I just got the 2011 Audi A4 Manual Quattro Premium with Bluetooth and Ipod. MSRP was $35,735. I have top tier credit so my money rate was 1.3%. Knocking $1,000 off the MSRP, my 39 month lease at 15,000 miles with no money down came to $452/month.
  • cjacob6cjacob6 Posts: 10
    Just cut the following deal:

    2011 Premium Plus
    Quartz Gray
    Titanium Sport Package
    39 month / 15k per year
    Residual 49% (Bumped to 50% if I get audi care. Can decide to add when I pick up car. Almost a wash with the $800 price and 1% residual adjustment)
    Money Factor: .00072

    MSRP $39,950
    Negotiated Price $38,118
    Audi Loyalty -$750
    Final Sales Price: $37,368 (invoice was $37,214)

    Paid 8% Tax, Title, License and Acq. fees up front. Rolled $1,790 in trade equity (payment would have been $46/month higher without the rolled equity)

    Total monthly payment $449.98

    Car had to be special ordered and is expected late may / early june. $500 deposit locked in the lease rate which can only change if lease programs get better between now and delivery.
  • First time poster, may have missed answer in previous posts. Apologize if that's the case!

    What is the March 2011 money factor for 42-month lease, top-tier credit, please?

    I have a manual A4 Premium Plus on the way under a $500 deposit. I figure invoice at $36,778 and current offer from dealer is $1250 off, for price of $38,230. (Any thoughts on leaving $1452 on the table? Audi popular in these parts. Fair purchase price I have found online shows $38,888).

    Any help very much appreciated, and thanks in advance for you assistance!!

    That sounds much better. I can not believe some of you are paying over $600 a month for a freakin A4. There is no reason why I car that costs between $37-41k in it middle and upper trims should be any more than maybe $450-510 per month.

    You realize that those prices of over $600 a month is what people are paying on luxury sedans like the M, E, and 5? Plus, don't forget, Audi still does not have reliability in its favor compared to BMW and Infiniti. Plus, if you have top tier credit, there is no reason the payments should be that much. I could see paying over $600 a month on a A6 but not a A4.
