Audi A4, Sedan
#1033 of 2072 Just FYI in Cleveland

Today I testdrove (for the 2nd time) a 2009 A4 2.0. I have a 2003 A4, so I think the salesman is getting his hopes up.
For a Premium Plus with wood (sticker $38.4K) he offered $37,182, 3.2% off of MSRP and 3.9% over Edmunds' cost.
When he asked what I thought, I told him I wasn't convinced the A4 was worth $2,200 more than the new Acura TL. He said Audi dealers didn't have that much room to move on price but his sales manager wasn't going to lose a deal over another $500 off.
I have a FrontTrak/CVT now; he did say he has no idea when they would get any 2009 CVT's in.

The dealers are in the san jose area, not sure I should give the sales guy name hate for him to know I have been posting his quotes on this website, but then again I kinda get the felling he reads this fourm ?
Djdj, why would you get an Audi with front wheel drive only? I mean I like audi but I am not in love with them and the only reason to buy one is the AWD feature, otherwise it's like buy a VW but a lot more money.
Speaking of has everyone seenthe Jetta Wagon, looks OK but no AWD.. The VW prices are MUCH cheaper then the audi prices.

My '07 lease is up on the 17th of November. I have the 2.0T Quattro with Premium package (sunroof/ Xenon headlights/ folding mirrors) and bluetooth but don't have heated seats. (Could not find a car locally with heated seats and bluetooth!!! It was one or the other!! Who would order a car in Michigan without heated seats???)
Anyway, my lease was pretty nice but only 24 mos. at about 379/ month. (Came to 479/month with all the taxes, etc.) Nothing down and no security deposit. I really wanted an A5 but they seem to be hard to come by. Guess my choice is to buy my car (residual is 26K and dealers are asking about 28-29K now) or just go with a 2009 A4. Where can I go to look up the invoice prices on the 2009 Quattro with the 2.0T?? Would like to get the nav package this time as I have an aftermarket GPS and love it! Also, I have XM radio which I installed yself for $90 instead of several hundred from the dealer!!

Edmunds's invoice price on A4 is very accurate.

According to Edmunds over the weekend, it doesn't look like anyone is getting the 3.2 for much less than MSRP. I'm thinking it's due to the availability as there aren't many 3.2s to choose from down here yet, and when searching Edmunds, I don't see another car in the U.S. matching my configuration, which I thought would be a fairly common config w/ varying color maybe, 3.2 Ice Silver Metallic w/ gray interior, Premium Plus w/ wood grain and navigation.
I was hoping to learn whether dealers were coming off the MSRP yet on the 3.2 AND when the dealers would be getting larger quantities of 3.2 as I presume this is when they will start to negotiate more.
Again, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. The car I ordered should be arriving at port within the next week or so if they're to have it to me for Nov 17.

edmunds is very accurate with invoice prices. Dealers will likely add advertising/prep for about $383 and Transportation/dest was $825. These two numbers can vary depend on where you live (i think). You can come up with your final price by using edmunds's invoice + advertising/prep + destination. Good luck!

Edmunds adds the destination charge on the last page, after you pick the options... It's usually a fixed charge for the entire country, except maybe AK and HI..
#1040 of 2072 Under Invoice?
Nov 07, 2008 (5:36 pm)
How many of you are getting this car for under invoice? Also, when you say that you got it under invoice (i.e. $500 under), do you still have to pay some kind of dealership advertising/prep fees?
I am getting quotes of around $400-500 over invoice with dealer fees of around $500 (varying slightly by dealer) here in Colorado. Could I really save $1000 and go from $500 OVER invoice to $500 UNDER? What about the dealer fees?

500 off edmunds invoice which does not have any ad fee . Someone in the leasing forum reported 800 below invoice but that might be rare.

500 off inovice in seatle
500 off invoice in San jose
800 off invoice in NE penn
invoice flat for northern nj for us AND probably could have pushed them a little more based on a subsequent conversation with the sales guy. i did get an additional $500 from audi for doing the audi driving experience and will get $500 from ACNA so in the end it was not horrible.
the deals maybe better on the coasts than in colorodo. Strikes me as the dealers are either being motivated by inventory or audi (especially on leases?) to make much better deals than just a short while ago. which factor is the key to know how hard push and also hard to know if prices will fall even more. my guess is that sales price may get better but lease deals will shift as well so payments will remain essentially flat from this point on.
