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.

Thanks so much for your help.
When you say "do not purchase any add ons" I am assuming that includes the prepaid maintences or any form of extended warranty?
I have asked Audi directly (e-mail inquiry) about the tires because I found it so strange not to put all season tires on the S-line trim but so far have not gotten any response.

Yes, no extended maintenance, tire warranty, paint warranty, extended warranty. No add on's.

I happen to partially disagree with no add ons. In general that is good advice, however, this is my 3rd Audi I am on and the one thing that is worth the money is their Audi care plan. It provides all maintenance for the first 4 years and it is about $750.
Unless you do all maintenance yourself, you will save money by paying up front. Also, on one of my Audis I had some real reliability issues and having the Audi care helps eliminate any potential for them to look at you as being at fault.
They will have the warranty and maintenance responsibility. Considering these cars are pushing the upper edge on technology it should be thought that maintenance will be expensive and a warranty claim is possible.
Peace of mind counts for something, but in this case it also makes financial sense.
#2015 of 2072 Help with final pricing
Feb 20, 2013 (1:32 pm)
Hi guys, this is my 1st time here in the forum & need your help on deciding on how much exactly I should pay for this car.
Here are the options
2013 Audi A4 2.0T Premium Plus Sedan
Premium Plus Package ($4,200)
Audi MMI Navigation Plus Package ($3,050)
Audi Guard All-Weather Floor Mats ($250)
MSRP - $44,060 & dealer (in MD) agreed to give this for $44,310.12 (on the road price including everything)
I currently own a 09 BMW (which I didn't tell them yet) & I think I can get $1000 off because of this? Also I'll try to see whether I can get a good deal with trade in this car as well?
What's the best way of approaching this? Should have a firm final price for the new car & then talk about the trade in?
Or should we talk about a final price including both?
Please help me. thanks!

That sounds like a straight. Actually it is about 100.00 too low so make sure they are including the destination and dealer processing fees. A lot of dealers will exclude these fees until you're in the dealership. You must ask point blank. When we give you a price of any kind it ALWAYS includes these fees. As for your trade, you're already at invoice price for the Audi so do not expect to get KBB numbers on your trade. Just nothing left to use and yes you will qualify for the 1000.00 comp. discount.
#2017 of 2072 Assistance with pricing
Feb 22, 2013 (2:58 pm)
Hi... would appreciate any advice on the following. I am looking at a Certified Pre-Owned 2011 A4 sedan 2.0T quattro with Premium Plus pkg. It has 38,000 miles on it, and the dealer is asking $28,350. I feel the mileage is high for this price, and am sure I can negotiate down, but not sure what a fair price would be, from my vantage point. The Edmunds TMV price, when I put in all the options, etc., comes to $28,750. However, I can't believe this is correct, as there's no way the dealer would start under TMV (unless I don't understand the TMV correctly or didn't process it correctly). Anyway, just looking for advice on what I can reasonably get this car for. Also, should I be asking for service records for this car? I'm concerned about the oil consumption issues I've been reading about. Thanks for any advice.

Hello, I am looking at a CPO 2013 Audi Allroad Premium Plus with 5000 miles on it, and they are asking $45,500 in Minn/St.Paul, Minnesota. This is not far off a brand new car without CPO. Is this a fair price? Is it worth it just for CPO if the price of a new car similarly optioned but without CPO at invoice is about the same? What is the wholesale price? Thanks.
