Audi A4 Lease Questions



  • I am looking to lease through AFS. I was told by the dealership that AFS charges a $350 purchase option fee. I guess it was started last year. Is this true or am I being taken?

    To be clear, I am not talking about the $350 disposition fee. I know you pay that if I return the car. I am referring to a fee to purchase the vehicle on top of the residual value at the end of my lease if I buy it.

    Has anyone leased in 2010 through AFS, and did they put that fee in the contract?

  • Hello .. Anyone can help me? Im looking to lease a new 2010 a4 base plus sports package. or a4 premium plus sports. i live in the state of Florida... I have been doing my research on prices.... this will be my 3rd audi a4. so i would get loyalty?

    Msrp: 34850
    money factor: .00049
    residual 50%
    15 K mi
    42 month lease
    Most i want to put down is 800 out of pocket. My credit is excellent... I am not worried about that... Do not remember what the invoice price was... but what like to know ballpark figure what a good deal would be... and what to negotiate on a fair deal.

    9.75% in Los Angeles County. I didn't go for the Audi Care service program. Do you feel it's worth it to pay for service in advance, with a "cap?"

    Here you go, aitrus03. Audi Financial Services' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 A4 Sedan FWD Premium Plus with 12,000 miles per year are .00008 and 50%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "A" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00028 and 49%.

    If you were to lease this car with only 10,000 miles per year, its residual values would be 1% higher. The rates for AFS' "B" credit tier are .00010 higher than the money factors that I mentioned.

    Unfortunately, I am not aware of any resource (other than myself of course) that provides this sort info to the general public.

    Hi chicago_jeff. As you mentioned Audi Financial Services charges a $350 disposition fee at the end of leases. Fees like this are extremely annoying, but they are fairly common in the industry. I would not be surprised if it charged a similar purchase option fee to consumers who choose to buy their vehicle at lease-end, but I don't know that it does for certain.

    I'm looking for realistic numbers (Cap Cost, Money Factor, Price, etc.) to lease a 2010 Audi A4 Avant with the Premium Plus package. What should I expect to see for a 36-42 month lease with 10k-12k in Long Island, NY if I roll everything into the payments (taxes, etc.)? Thanks!

    Yeah, I know, that is the old "Yo." But anyways, what are the May numbers (money factor and residual value) for an A4 Avant Premium and Premium Plus? I am looking for 36 month, 12k per year. Thanks! Used your help last time.

    Greetings audi4houston .

    Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    In short, the easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    Check out the articles and let us know if you have any questions.

    I am considering ordering a 2011 A5 based on 2010 pricing. As a result, I would not qualify for any incentives/rebates that are currently available, I am told!

    It is hard to answer the above two questions without being told what the car is being sold to you for. Even though the car is going to be leased there is still a sale price. Just post the sale price a nd itemize the fees and someone will be able to give you a lease price.
  • chaolanrenchaolanren Posts: 15
    I beleive they are able to do a sale price at $36500.00
