    Thanks in advance for all of your expertise and solid advice. I have enjoyed reading this forum and this is my first time to post. I have a 3 yr lease on my '08 A4 2.0 Turbo on a 3 yr lease (45K miles total) expiring 11/10. I already have 37000 and am sure to go over by probably 8-10 thousand miles. It's been a pretty good car but I'm not crazy about the turbo lag and the brakes. Would like to trade up but can't take a bath on the mileage. My payment is $430 and the residual will be $17K. What to do?

    Just about anything you do is going to cost you thousands more than riding out the lease and paying the mileage penalty...

    Doubt you could get that lease payment again on a new one, even without the negative equity..

    Whats the price of the car, not MSRP???

    The Cap Cost is the MOST important factor......seems like a good deal but i would get 12K.

    need more details
  • mkfxmkfx Posts: 26

    I am fine with 10k, I will drive this car less than 7500 a year.. I commute into NYC daily
  • seifseif Posts: 38
    i commute to nyc as well. just got a 2009 A4 Premium. got a great deal from my leasing agent. 12K miles, 36 months, $1150 out of pocket, $425.99/month.

    email me at apt11K4sale at if you want some contact details

    That's too much money down up front. The bank fee should be rolled into the lease.

    Your first payment should be the first month's lease payment, registration and docs, plus any required taxes.

    Does Audi financing require a security deposit?
  • jms493jms493 Posts: 18
    It does seem like a lot up front......break down the numbers further. I paid everything up front and it was $ NY
  • mkfxmkfx Posts: 26
    yeah but didn't you get your car in June when AFS had the summe rof Audi with no first month and security due?
  • I got mine back in January of this year from an auto broker here in southern california. I gave them my 07 infiniti fx35 which I still owed 3 months payment and was over miles and needed new tires so they added $3000 to the price on the audi. I got the 2009 a4 front-wheel drive with automatic trans., premium plus package, sports package, and navigation. I think the MSRP is $38900
    Monthly payment $645.50
    -39 month lease with 12,000 miles a year
    -buy out at end of lease is $19800
    -down payment $900 (which I did not have at the time and they let me write a check that was post dated for the next week when I got paid! =) but they let me take the car home! Oh and my credit score was a 640 so I think I got a great deal
  • So I am stuck as what I should do... I just leased a new 2009 Audi A4 premium plus last Thursday, it's been getting an EPC & Check engine light messages. So I bring it in Tuesday and the guy told me they had to replace the battery and that they have to order a new high pressure fuel pump.

    So I expected it to be ready today (Thursday) but now they're telling me the part did not come in and it may/may not come in tomorrow, but that likely it won't be ready till next Monday.

    Seeing as I JUST PURCHASED this less than a week ago, what do you guys suggest I do?
  • ghstudioghstudio Posts: 970
    Ask them to give you a loaner car until it gets fixed. Nothing else you can do.
  • Besides that which they're already doing. I'm saying since it is a new car and in less than a week it's already in for service. Should I tell them to give me a another car? All my friends are aware of the situation and are telling me to tell them I want a new car. I just don't know if that's possible or if legally they have to if I request another car. Any suggestions?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,817
    a) not legally entitled..

    b) not possible, either.. .most likely..

    Unless you want someone to do a 100 mile shakedown test of your car before it's delivered, sometimes this stuff happens.. Just wait for them to fix it.. :)

    What do you guys think of this deal. 2009 Premium Audi A4 with quattro, ipod interface, bluetooth, and wood for 493 per month for 42 months. THis lease includes Audi Care and only requires 1000 due at signing, which accounts for the first month payment, doc fee of 400, and the DMV fee of 100 dollars. All other taxes and bank fees are worked into the payment.12000 miles per year.
  • snoasissnoasis Posts: 5
    sounds like a good deal. i'm looking for a4 premium in NYC. would appreciate contact info snoasis at thanks
  • whit10whit10 Posts: 2
    My lease is up in January and I was contacted for a pull ahead lease.
    Will the 2009 deal be better than the 2010?

    I haven't talked numbers yet but I pay $400 including taxes for a 2007 A4
    No bells or whistles and he said I could probably get the 2010 now for the same prices. Just registration, taxes, etc. down.
    I am in California

    Any input is appreciated. I am not over miles or anything so I don' know what the benefit is?
  • fdavid9fdavid9 Posts: 1

    $0 down
    $518.14 a month including tax

  • annaz1annaz1 Posts: 4
    Anyone know of what the residuals, money factor and dealer (marketing) support is for the 2010 A4s FWD? I'm sitting at $407 / mo. with $3000 cash, cap cost of 32500 (MSRP = 33375) . The money factor / residual they are using is 0.00157 / 18886. seems to suggest that the money factor should be around 0.00102. Any insight would be much appreciated....I just can't find any info for the 2010s.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hello annaz1. I can help you out with the information that you're looking for. The money factor that you were quoted looks a little high. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A4 2.0 Sedan Premium FWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00102 and 53%, respectively.

    You never mentioned how long you want to lease for or what mileage allowance you need, so I had to make some assumptions. Let me know if you want something different.

    Other than $750 loyalty cash for returning lessees, Audi is not currently providing any cash incentives on this car.

  • This sounds like a good deal to me. I put out about 2500 with 417.00 a month on a premium.
  • Hi, I am currently looking at leasing a 2009 A4...Can someone please tell me the current residual and money factor that Audi is offering on the 09's? I am looking to do a 36 month lease with 12K....also just want to put regular fees down with no downpayment. The quote I got is $460/month in NYC so just want to see if that is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance!
  • annaz1annaz1 Posts: 4

    Thanks for the info. I was looking for a 36. mo lease with 10K miles. Does the residual change substantially?
  • snoasissnoasis Posts: 5
    $0 down, 12K, $457/mo
    taxes/fees upfront
    (33500, 57 residual, .00160 money factor i think)

    should i keep searching/waiting?

    CarMan, kyfdx

    I am in need of the Audi MF and resid % values for:

    New Audi 09, cab, Spec Ed.
    12,000 and also 15,000/y
    2 and also 3 year lease

    Please advise soonest, trying to deal today.

    I am a big fan of these blogs and of your help. I leased 3 Bimmers and 1 Toyota with your very important. Hope you are appreciated!
    I posted this also on S4 by mistake.
  • What are the MF and Residuals on a 2010 A4 2.0T Manual Prestige? Dealer quoted a MF that worked out to almost 8%! That can't possibly be right... :mad:
  • rich30rich30 Posts: 5
    Unfortunately, the dealer is allowed to do almost anything they want and make extra profit by deceiving the buyer. It's not like investing with Madoff, is nasty.

    If the MF from Audi finance is 0.0010 (only for example, I do not hv this # for u) and the dealer tells you the MF is 0.0016, guess what - the dealer keeps the difference as extra profit! Residuals can wok same way. This is the sophisticated level of the rip off (what the consumer does not understand is grounds for making extra $). You expect honest help once you want their brand, so you want to just finance it, what you get - "A ball of confusion". Your car salesman is changed into an "investment banker" making his profit by giving made up financial percentages when you expect to get a fair deal.

    When a client asks dealer for the money factor, he/she expects the current rate determined by the brand's finance co. This is not the norm - you will not usually get the current numbers from the car finance co. (Audi fionance here).

    This is exactly why we all need this and other forums where you can get the truth. Even calling the Audi (or any brand) finance co and ask them for the resid or MF - they will not give you an answer! - believe it or not! They tell you it is up to the dealer to give these crucial #s!

  • I'm being a bit lazy, cause I'm busy at work and figured I'd ask the expert. I leased a 2007 Toyota Camary XLE so I not a neophyte. This time around I like the Audi A4 quattro. Will I be better off with the 2010 or 09 for residual purposes. I'm looking for 15K a year for 3 years. What can I expect MF and residual. I'm in New England.

    Also what about 3rd party lease services? Anybody have any experiences w/ them good or bad.

    Thanks, Jack
  • First time leaser looking to see if this is a good deal. No audi service included...

    MSRP of 43625, mrm 42800
    38,980 base cap cost
    3,000 due at lease sign
    21,828 residual of 51%
    .00226 MF
    36 months
    15k miles a year

    $582 a month + tax = $634 month

    Any advice would be appreciated!
  • ghstudioghstudio Posts: 970
    don't put any money down. If something happens to the car, you will not get that money back. You should only pay the first month's payment, registration fees and any taxes required by law up front. Your payments will be a little higher because you didn't pay the $3000...but you will find that they are about $3000/36 = $83 higher. Guess what, that's just the $3000 spread out over 36 payments. Much safer way to lease.

    Ask if Audi offeres a discount for multiple security deposits. If they do, post back here and I'll explain why that's a great deal for you.

    Residuals on the 2010 are much higher than on the 2009....of course. If you lease a 2009, the advantage is that you can negotiate a lower price. When coupled with the lower residual though, I'm not sure you're going to save by buying the older model You have to get the dealer to run both deals. Run them with no money down. (don't let them tell you that audi is offering this wonderful deal....the money factors and residuals are independent of the money down.).
