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.

Thanks! it is timely as I haven't bought the car yet and had no idea about the Coquest rebate. So sounds like you're saying I can also get them to come down on the price under invoice?
#2010 of 2072 Help with A4 Negotiations
Feb 13, 2013 (9:05 am)
I am looking to purchase a A4 prestige with the S-line option.
That said the information from Audi I see shows the S-line coming with "summer" vs. all season tires.
I would like to have the dealership change the tires before I purchase the vehicle. How should this effect my negotiated price? I understand this request will need to be clear before we get to a final price just don't know what I should be paying if anything. The alternative is to purchase from my tire dealer at home a second set of tires for the winter ( l live in the mountains). I did have 2 set of tires for my last AWD car. Just a guess but I would think a second set might be $1200.
Second question. There is a vehicle in inventory which is very close to what I am looking for. Been there at least 30 days maybe longer. If it is still there at the end of April would I be able to negotiate a better price than now? I realize this is some what of a gamble because it could be gone tomorrow so the price reduction would need to be more than hundreds of dollars to be worth the risk. I don't know when the 2014 start to show up so I don't have an understanding on the timing.
Thanks for the help.

If they want to make the deal they will change the tires for you but my guess is they are all season on the car.
Car dealers pay interest on cars sitting on the lot so they might have more invested in some cars. That could not be in your favor.
I would visit them 3 days before the end of the month and purchase the last day of the month with your financing all lined up with your local bank. Do not purchase any add on's. They are all in the dealers favor.
