That is what I paid for my 2003 A6 3.0 quattro. I got it at Gossett Motors in Memphis, Tn. I also got a good trade in value for my car. I got it in February.

I don't understand why anyone would pay anything over invoice for a car in today's market. I'm not trying to be critical with the previous posts, but if one is saavy and strong willed enough, you should be able to pay below invoice on most cars, even Audis! Thanks to the information on this site, I have bought every automobile I have owned (except my first VW because I was a nieve 18 y.o. and even helped negotiate deals for friends and relatives) based, in part, on information from this website.
Edmunds gives you an accurate dealer cost, you factor in your options, then subtract your rebates (consumer and dealer), dealer holdback and negotiate from the rock bottom price! If you are bold, go even lower than that! Also, walk in with a printout to document where you arrive at your price, if possible.
When I bought my Audi, they had a nice high-speed internet connection where I was able to visually show management where I got my figures from. And I've been smiling ever since.

That's true, except when you are looking for certain combination. For Audi, if you are looking for an A6 Avant, and if you want it in certain color, equipments, you might not have that much wiggle room as compared to the A6 sedan. Supply and demand are still in effect.

I considered buying a used 2000 A6 but lost out when someone else offered the dealer 2K more than me. The dealer told me they had some outstanding lease deals so I put the pencil to the paper. I was surprised to find I could get a new car for less than what i was going to pay for the used. I compared the three year cost to buy versus the three year lease cost. I took into account the used sale price, assumed 4.9% financing, and figured the 2000 would be about 75% depreciated at end of year 7. I would have bought the Audi Assured Warranty with 2 years which would have left me out of warranty during the last year at approx. 75/80 K.
The lease deal included a 50% residual and .0006 money factor (this works out to about 1.3% finance charge). I got the car for $40,900. (premium, Bose, Cold Weather) The Edmund's invoice showed $40, 747.
Excluding the tax breaks from business use, I was slightly ahead with the lease. This assumed the sale of the "bought" vehicle and walking away from the lease at end of year 3. With the superior taxbreaks for business use, the cost was over $2000 less when leasing.

I'm looking at buying a certified pre owned 2001 A6 Avant with 33K miles, premium sound, and xenon headlights for $26,800 from a reputable dealer. Any thoughts?
#8 of 683 Audi A6 - good price?

I live in CT, and over the weekend was quoted 40,270 for an A6 3.0 quattro sedan with premium package, cold weather package and alloy wheels. I believe MSRP is 43,090 and invoice is 39,270 - which means this is 1,000 over invoice. Is this a good deal???
#9 of 683 Is 1K Over Invoice a Good Deal?

#10 of 683 good deal?

Is the dealer owner standing in a soup kitchen? The '04's are slowly selling because of the face lift for the '05 - new and improved. Buying a new '04 would cause me to ask for 10% off the final MSRP. I'm already quoted 5% off of a new '05.
A used A6 with ONLY 33k miles for $26K? This car is already 4 years old, try for much less. Check out blue book value, wholesale - that's what the dealer gives the trade in customer.
