What is this discussion about?
Audi A4, Sedan
Jun 07, 2012 (6:57 pm)
So I just took delivery of one of the new 2013 Audi A4's and I have to say - what a value when entering this level of car. They have upgraded so many little things on the 2013 model including Google Maps with Traffic, and a hot spot. The leather seats are clearly superior to the leather used in previous models and the 8-speed auto is very smooth.
If you want the handling - pay a little extra for the sports package. with a lower front end, paddle shifters and upgraded seats, its clearly worth an additional $700 if you like nice handling.
A similarly equipped BMW would cost another $6k when you start adding the options. In my case, I was able to get one of the first cars available and not only is it beautiful, but to negotiate invoice pricing was great.
I have seen many saying they don't like the new lights, but personally, I like them more because they are a little cleaner looking and it lets you know that the car has been refreshed from 2009.
I will say, it would have been sweet if they had added another 20 HP, but I prefer the performance combination of the Quattro and the current engine over the new BMW 4-cyl for sure.

escortowner, could you comment on the pricing on your new 2013? Are incentives offered for current owners on the '13? Also, is it true that the light birch wood trim is discontinued? Not sure if you purchased or leased, but any source on the MF and residuals for the new 2013 (P, PP or Prestige sedan 12K/y)

I am considering buying a 2009 CPO A4 from a dealership. It is the premium (base) model and FWD (not quattro).
The car has 35000 miles on it.
Dealer is quoting 27000+taxes = $30000. Is this a good deal to get into for a CPO car?
I am not great at numbers. If someone could help me out with this, it would be so great!!
Thanks in advance..

Doesn't really sound like a good deal. Seems like the car just came off a lease and the buyout should be around 19k or less. That car new sold for around 34k and it is now close to 4 model years later and not a quatto. I really don't see the purpose of purchasing a non quatto car. Kind of defeats the purpose of purchasing an Audi. The more I think about it 20 would sound fair. Good luck and offer 18k there won't be a lot of people banging the door down for that car. Edmunds values the car at 19k. You can find better deals and Im not say that's a deal.

Hard to tell without knowing your sales tax. Just list dealer price and msrp.

Sorry I got it wrong.. It is a quattro model and it is a CPO. So, is something around 29-30K a fair price?
Sales tax in Bellevue/Seattle is 9.8%

I test drove 2012 yesterday, with similar MSRP $44K with the nav, b&o sound, Sline.. very nice... I just started looking at the A4 so 2012-2013 almost looks the same to me, sales guy right away offering $2600 off , at this point its better to go for the 2013, I am interested to know if you tried offering $38-39K on your deal...

I am considering a 2013 A4 quattro premium plus with nav and just test drove one 2 days ago. I also test drove a brand new 2012 A4 (prestige). 2013 certainly felt better to handle and I also liked the other cosmetic changes better. Dealer quoted an MSRP of $44,260 but said he will give a 2k discount + 1K loyalty rebate (I currently own a 2008 A4). Does it sound like a good deal? $41,260? I told the sales guy he needs to do more than that but he was like no dealer is going to negotiate the price of 2013 with you...you can go and check. So then I walked out of the dealership and said I'll let you know. Do you think 41k is a good deal for a 2013 A4 quattro with premium plus package incl navigation, rear sensors etc etc?

Dealer retail on that car is only 21k. So you should be able to find that car anywhere for 21k plus tax. That is a bad deal.

That's about 3k more than I paid for a '12 last August for the same car. I just relax for a week or two and he'll call back with a better price or just shop around. That's not a good deal.
