#2001 of 2072 How do I negotiate this deal?
Jan 09, 2013 (2:19 pm)
I'm new to the forum and new to leasing cars (I've been driving a 1998 camry for the last 4 years). I'm looking at a lease special on a 2013 A4 2.0T Quattro Tiptronic. Some info is below:
Convenience Package: $1100
Heated Front Seats: $450
Wheel Lock Kit: $100
First Aid Kit: $45
Total Price: $37,190
Lease terms are:
$1000 conquest incentive if you own a luxury car (I have a 1998 Camry...)
$3995 fees total drive off
42 month 15k miles
$350.54/mo out the door
Is this a good deal or how can I better negotiate this? Which parts of this lease can I negotiate and what should I be aiming for? I know this is a pretty broad question but I have no idea what to expect and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks everybody!

Please use this lease calculator.
Everything is negotiable in a lease. Even though you are leasing you still have to negotiate a sale price, interest rate and buyout at the end of the lease.
Use this link to find out what the sale price should be for the car
Your interest/money factor rate should be around .00064 and your residual/buyout should be 54%. You need to get everything down, your payment is way too high..

I would pass on option B. There really isn't a point to purchase a FWD Audi, that defeats the purpose of owning an Audi. AWD Audi handling is the drive no other maker can duplicate.
As far as option A goes just follow the link to see if you are purchasing below invoice. You should be able to get it below.

Thanks jnyz, appreciate the quick reply. I used the calculator you provided and came out with $429 / mo with $0 down. Is this fair? My inputs were:
MSRP: 37,190 (includes all dealer installed equipment & packages)
Base Cap Cost: 35,166 (took this from edmunds and includes additional packages and kits)
Residual value 54% and MF .00064
8.75% sales tax
I hope I did that right. Please let me know if this is a good price. I was hoping for something closer to $400 with $0 down...
Car_Man, what do you think?
#2007 of 2072 good deal on A4 Premium plus?
Feb 08, 2013 (4:08 pm)
Hi, I just left the dealership with this quote. They said they can't negotiate anymore on the selling price because it's close to invoice. I'm trading in a 2004 Acura TSX, kelly blue book values trade in at 10,700, they are at 9000.
Selling price: 41,546.10
trade amount: 9000
lic fee: 250
Sales Tax: 3191.28
out the door: 36,005.38
They waived the service fee of $150
I'd like to get it for 35K but trying to figure out if I could/should negotiate better?

not sure if this is still timely, but I don't see any reason why you can't get that extra $1,000 of what you want.
See the link above, there is a $1,000 "Conquest" rebate available just for trading in your Acura.
If you want to try to get even more, I would take your trade over to Carmax or something like that for a comparison trade. I am in the Houston area so there was another similar place I took my car, then went back to Audi and got them to match the trade offer.
Finally, if it were me, I would simply tell them (not ask) that they need to take another $1,000 off of the price because of the conquest offer and let them know that they are still significantly above invoice as a result.
