Just a correction to the above...
$32,120 final price does NOT include the trade in
The $500 trade-in is going towards the cap-reduction/up front cost

Why do you need Audi Care on a lease?
The purchase price for the car should be 32,500 (not counting audi care) before trade in, audi loyalty and any other discounts you may have. You have a lot more negociating to do.

Thanks for your reply.
I'm getting Audi Care because I intend to purchase the car at the end of the lease. Given the lease rate, even including fees, it would actually work out to be slightly cheaper to lease the car and buy it out rather than finance it from the start. Plus, it's easier to write off the lease payment rather than figure out the depreciation on the car if I were to finance it.
As far as the cost of the car, I'm actually down to $32,300.
Then there is the $1000 loyalty cash and my $500 trade in on top of that.
So price is $31,300 (inc loyalty cash) and then $500 trade in.
Let me know... Thanks!!!

Sounds about right. If you are going to keep the car, I would step up to a premimum plus. Also follow this link and try to get the car at dealer invoice.

I thought about the premium plus... it would be about an extra $1400 to upgrade. Since I already am paying for the two things that I want (convenience and lighting packages), the only remaining items would be the heated seats, 60/40 rear split back, and the auto-dimming mirrors. I figured those are negligible anyway. I couldn't really care about dual zone climate... so I'd rather pocket the extra money.
I also think the dealer is trying to move this car over the premium plus from what my gut says... and that's fine for me.

I would forget about Audi Care and get the premium plus. The trim and advanced key are well worth it and you will get it all back and plus when you sell it.

From what I see on the 2013 A4, there's no advanced key standard on the premium plus... it's standard on the prestige. The only remaining difference is heated seats, auto dimming mirrors, split rear seat, multi zone climate control, and aluminum door trim. So its those options or would I rather save $1500?!?!?
I'm leaning towards saving the $1500, as the only one of those options I would like is the auto dimming mirrors... the rest I don't care.
I think the price is fair... need to pull trigger today!

Looks to me by the link you posted you already know. You do not need to waste our time here.
