Audi A4 Lease Questions

  • I recently got a quote on an '08 Avant w/ premium, bluetooth and sport suspension for:

    MSRP: 36,400
    Cap: 33,300
    MF: .0015
    Residual: 53%

    This is for 15K miles for 36 months.

    Carman, do you know what the MF's and residuals are for '08 Avants?

    So you guys are saying that this incentive is good for purchases? I leased an A4 2.0T Quattro with extra features for $371/month 36 months 12k miles/yr. The interest rate is 2.15%. So do you think I got a decent deal? Or could have gotten something better? Thanks.
  • I am in Cleveland, Ohio, and took out a 24-mo lease on an A4 in Dec 05. Love the car, want to get another one and avoid the hassle of looking for something two weeks before my current lease expires. I had a hefty security deposit (five monthly payments or around $2,200) that I should get back too. I did not put a cent down on my current Audi and intend to do same again. It's all security deposits for me.

    How willing are Audi dealers to negotiate with current lessees? I am not necessarily interested in terminating my current lease but for the right deal and the right conditions I'd consider it. But will I be penalized in any way if I am going to take another Audi from the same dealer? Approx. how long before my lease ends should I start looking for a new deal then?

    I also heard that Audi offers incentives to "stay in the family". Does anyone know what form these take?

    Thx.

    I have a premium purchase plan (flex lease) on my '04 A4 that ends shortly. Does anyone know what the costs would be to buy the car in addition to the balance, i.e. dealer costs, taxes, etc. Do you have to pay taxes again (as I paid them in the beginning of the plan as well)? Thanks for any input.

    I also have a premium purchase plan. Could you please explain what are the main differences between this plan and a lease? Which one is better? Thanks,

    2008 A4 Avant 2.0 lease program:

    Residual: 56%
    MF .00138

    12K/36 mo

    According to Inside Line and Customer Care, Audi has no incentives for returning customers.
  • The current lease program on a 2007 Audi A4 2.0T is $359/mo and $2308 due at inception. Details are here:
    http://www.pugetsoundaudidealers.com/audi/regional_aoa/pugetsound/Position_1.htm- l

    On a lease, does it make any sense to put more down to get a smaller monthly payment? I read on this forum that it doesn't, regards to your car being total or stolen. It also doesn't affect the purchase option price. Is this correct?

    If so, can I negotiate to not put down any payment? That better for me.

    I'd like 12k miles per year. Is there any flexibility in the lease for changing the miles? What are the stipulations?

    I won't be leasing before Sept 4th. When will my next opportunity be? When will the 2008 leases be available?

    Thanks,
    Brett
  • Looking at a left over 2007 S4 Avant - $54K MSRP. Looking at a 36 month lease, 10K per year. Would like to put minimums down. What should I expect to pay? In AZ. Thanks, Bill

    The car I have right now is paid off, but just in the past six months I've spent almost $1300 in repairs, and most of those repairs done very recently. I wasn't considering a lease because I drive 20k/year, but this situation seems very favorable...

    I'm considering taking over someone else's lease for $332/month. The original lease is 36k/24 months. They've put only 9k miles in the first 10 months, so I can put 27k miles on it over the next 14 months.

    Seller is asking $2500 down. What do you think? Opinions welcome from all!

    How did I do?.

    I just got the following deal from Audi Dealer in Chicago Land

    new Audi 2007 Quattro 2.0 T
    premium package + heated front seats
    15000 miles/yr 36 month lease
    Includes Audi care

    3000 total down payment
    399 per month
    175xx end of lease buyout

    Nice:
    Three questions:
    1) Is it Tiptronic or stick?
    2) $3,000 down - is all that the down payment or does it include acquisition fee and first month lease payment?
    3) Taxes - I'm from NY, dont know Chicago - are there taxes, what % and if so are they in the monthly lease or paid separately?
    Thanks for your help and good luck with the car.
  • fbshortfbshort Posts: 2
    1) It is Tiptronic
    2) Yes it does
    3) The 399 monthly payments includes Taxes,

    The price I got on the car 27400. However with this low price the money factor I got is a but high. I think if I would have really worked hard on the deal, could have done around $385/month and 2500 total initial payment and a bit lower lease end buy price ( in 16xxx).

    These dealers play lot of tactics and it is amazing how price comes down ones you start negotiating. My first quote for this vehicle was 5500 total initial payment and 450 monthly payments.

    I was first thinking to get an BMW, but audi is really nice and much better value
  • schweikbschweikb Posts: 111
    Thanks - great info!! What is the tax rate in your area. I would like to figure a pre-tax amount, then calculate what the NY taxes are and add them back in for a target for my negotiation. I am assuming your $3,000 down is probably comprised of the 1st month payment $399 + about $600 in fees, so a real "downpayment" of $2,000 - right?
    Sorry to keep pestering you but I like the idea of leasing an 07 and accepting whatever is on the car - the one I'm looking at has the same equipment plus wood interior trim (I like!!)
  • Here you go, audiguy3. Through September 4th, Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Audi A4 Avant 2.0T without the S-Line package with 15,000 miles per year are .00030 and 49%, respectively. Audi does not seem to be providing lease support on 48 month leases of this model, so forget about that term.

  • Hey rallyfan. All things being equal, namely a vehicle's residual values, the lower its money factor is the better your monthly payment will be. Through September 4th, Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 A4 2.0T Sedan without quattro with 15,000 miles per year are .00012 and 51%, respectively. Shoot for a selling price that is closer to dealer invoice than the TMV number that you mentioned. Consumers who are in an area that has a decent level of competition can usually beat TMV by shopping around. Try stopping by the following discussion to see how much others have paid for this car lately: "Audi A4: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

  • Hey memmullen. Audi Financial Services' lease program for this model varies by term and mileage allowance. You never mentioned what either of these variables are, so for now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. Through September 4th, Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Audi A4 2.0T Avant with 15,000 miles per year are .00030 and 57%, respectively.

  • Hi needashower. Interesting username :P . The rumor that you heard is correct. Audi is providing its dealers with a $3,000 dealer cash incentive to help them unload their remaining 2007 A4s. Having said this, this dealer cash is not compatible with Audi Financial Services' special lease program.

  • Hey there rxke. Audi is currently providing 2.9% financing for up to 60 months or $3,000 dealer cash or a special lease program on the 2007 A4.

  • What you were told is correct, woodeallen. The $3,000 dealer cash that Audi is currently providing on the 2007 A4 is not compatible with its special lease program. If you opt to go with the dealer cash, then you will have to use Audi's standard lease program to calculate your monthly payment or lease through an independent bank. The .00300 money factor that you were quoted is right in line with AFS' standard program.

I believe that AFS does have a MSD program, but I don't know its exact details. Check with your dealer to find out.

  • Hey pmadruga. The type of transmission that your car has should not have any impact upon Audi Financial Services' lease program for it.

  • Hey woodeallen. Through September 4th, Audi Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 A4 2.0T Avant with 15,000 miles per year are .00138 and 54%, respectively with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing. I believe that AFS will waive its security deposit requirement for returning lessees for free, but it charges a .00015 increase in the money factor for a security deposit waiver for non-returning customers. Assuming that you are not making a capitalized cost reduction, the cap cost that you are bring given looks very attractive to me.

  • Hi zmp. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the car that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this what car's selling price is in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of your deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

  • Greetings casanova2. Audi is not currently running any sort of early lease termination program that I am aware of. If this is the case, then you will either have to pay all of your remaining monthly payments or purchase your A4 from the bank that you are leasing it through to get out of it several months prior to the scheduled end of your lease. Getting out of leases early is usually fairly expensive. You probably will be better off waiting until a month or two before the scheduled end of your current lease to get something new.

  • Zmp, Audi Financial Services' Premier Purchase Plan is what is known in the industry as a balloon note program. Balloon notes are very similar to leases in that they provide consumers with low monthly payments and the option to purchase their vehicle at the end of their term for a predetermined price. The main difference between balloon notes and leases is that with balloon notes, your name is on your vehicle's title while with leases the bank's is. Leases are much, much more popular than balloon notes. Today balloon notes only seem to be used in the few areas that have tax laws that make them more attractive than leases, like Texas.
