Make a cash offer, walk out the door if they say 'no' - say you will think about it, call back in a couple days (hope the car will still be there), make your offer again (speak to sales manager). This might be more effective toward the end of the month. Do your research - comps (what actual cars sold for similar to this one) are the way to justify your offer. If the car is at an Audi dealer, you may be able to get 0.9% financing - which will save you hundreds (or more) in finance charges. Good luck.

200 A4 Avant Quattro 6MT SE
Planning to lease with zero down, like the current A4 sedan offer.
They are crazy, right? I should get close to invoice, which on Edmunds is $32,187.
Is a manual Avant that rare that I should have to spend nearly invoice?!
I was thinking to offer $32,200 or $32,500 or walk away.

Yes, there should be quite a bit of room to move on that price. My 08 A4 Special Edition had an MSRP of $32,075 and my purchase price was $29,175. That is $2900 below MSRP on a less expensive vehicle (mine isn't the Quattro model).
I would check other dealers in the area, if that is an option. Otherwise, I would offer the dealer a price you are okay with, and if they don't accept then walk away. Best of luck.

I have negotiated a price of a A4 3.2 Quattro Automatic with Navigation and Convenience package for $40,475 including all dealer fees + Indiana sales tax. Now the sales person is 'claiming' that I cannot get the 0.9% 36 month special financing. Is he just trying to get me to pay a higher price?

It all depends on your credit. Not everybody qualifies for the special financing.

Credit has not been checked. He outright stated that I can only have the low price or the special credit.

I would call another dealer and see what they say. I am in the process of purchasing an A4 and was told the financing was available.
#960 of 2044 2008 A4 Deals

Hi all, I've been going through this thread and from pages 79-85 I saw that back around this time in 2007, people where getting new A4's from $2000-$3500 below invoice. I'd like to know if anyone has gotten such a good deal lately. Keep in mind the redesigned 2009 A4's are about a month away from what I've been told by dealers. I'm thinking we should be able to at least match the deals that people got last year. Also it seems that dealerships have a lot of A4s in inventory. These cars don't seem to be selling fast. Can any one comment on a recent '08 purchase? Thanks!

The dealer probably incorporated the dealer cash ($3000) that's available into your price. It's one or the other, the cash or the special financing, but not both. If you qualify for the special rates, then they'll revoke the dealer cash.

The same thing happened to me. I had read that the current audi APR incentives go all the way up to 2.9% at 60 or even 72 months....OR, $3000 cash (for a 3.2 sedan).
Of course, when we started talking turkey with the salesperson, he never mentioned any of that. He magically gave us the "deal of the century" which was roughly $3000 off of the sticker. Then when we asked about the incentives (i.e. low APR), he said we wouldn't be able to get incentives at the low price we were getting. So, we said, no way.
He also showed us an invoice...which matched edmunds invoice price, except for an added $195 fee which i bet was BS. I'm assuming they still make money, even at the invoice price??
