I liked the 2018 A4 model but since the '19 model is right around the corner(Nov 12th), I'm in a dilemma which one to go with. Also, I need this car only for 2 years from now after which I'm moving out of the US. So, the best deal for me is one that costs me the least money at the end of 2 years.

2018
-----
Highest discount I got: 10% off MSRP
Audi Financial Services Rebate: 2500

2019
-----
Highest discount I got: 6% off MSRP(is it usually this low?)
Audi Financial Services Rebate: (usually lesser for newer vehicles)?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    6% off a new model is pretty standard for an Audi.

    Why not do a 2 year lease, if you know you have to get rid of the car in two years?

    Well, My current visa validity is until Jan 2020 and I need to apply for extension as early as next year April. USCIS just takes a lottery and if you're lucky, you get it. So, car dealers are usually not comfortable to deal with uncertainty.

    So, they'll loan you money for longer than your visa, but they won't lease you the vehicle? Weird

    Thanks but can you tell me what you think about the deal? I was able to actually stretch it to 12% but that's the max

    12% off plus the rebate? Or including the rebate?

    If it's plus the rebate, that's a great deal
