Purchased from Audi in Sarasota FL

2018 A5 Cabriolet Prestige

MSRP $ 62,605.00
DISC $ 8,421.25
Sell Price: $54183.75
Trade $11,000.00
Dealer Doc Fee's $799.00
AudiCare $869.00
TTL $2,125.1
Total OTD $46,976.85

Thanks to @Brian125 and @bluemkn57cars for giving great guidance on negotiating price, using the internet, etc. etc. I made the mistake of walking into another car dealership (it was local). Never again. The experience between trying to purchase at the local car dealership versus from the Audi dealer in Sarasota FL was night and day. As for the Audi A5 Cabriolet, what a car. In my mind, blew away the BMW 430i and was nicer than the BMW 440i. It also was performed and was far nicer than the Mercedes C 300 cabriolet. On the way home from the dealership, my wife got cut off by a bluehair 90 something year old. Before she could hit the brakes, the safety features were activated and the brakes locked up avoiding what could have been a terrible accident Car already is paying dividends.

    Thanks Mike! Car is amazing. I love my Honda Accord Touring, but the A5 is in a whole different class.
