i am in the market for a 2004-2005 audi a6 (2.7t,3.0t) , fully loaded, "average" miles. i live in northern new jersey. i need to get a handle on the dealer's cost of the vehicle. as a shortcut: do i take the msrp ,and use a percentage of this.? for example, if the msrp is $28,000, do i take 90% of this number and use this as my dealer cost? any help would be appreciated.

When I purchased mine, I went by KBB trade in value and figured in the cost for them to certify it. plus a little bit for profit which kind of comes out to be around KBB private party value. Just realize even KBB trade in value for a used Audi is very inflated. My 02 A6 KBB trade in value is around 17,500 - 18,000 but the most I have been offered for a trade is 15,500 from at least 7-8 dealers. My experience with my CPO Audi has been very mixed. The first 9 months I had it , it was in the shop 10 times for random things. It didn't cost anything but it was a real pain and really killed any confidence in the car. We won't even take it on long trips any more. The last five months have been good though. From my research I would recommend going with the 3.0. I have read many horror stories about the 2.7T. I would also make sure you check the CarFax report and do not purchase one that had been sold at auction, I would try to get a one owner lease return.
Just my 2 cents and best of luck!

I'm looking at purchasing an 03 A6 4.2. It's got 40K, and the asking price is $26K. Should I jump on this?? Car looks great, drives great. The one thing, though, is that the 4 year warranty is up in October. Is the maintenance really expensive, oil change, etc? Could I change the oil my self?? Thanks in advance for any advice!!

Personally I would never buy and Audi with out a warranty and I'm sure otheres here on this forum would agree. Maintenance is very expensive and and out of warranty service is EXTREMELY expensive. I had a seal go out in the transmission and if it were not coverer under warranty it would have been almost $3000 to repair. I also had another issue that was not a warranty repair but my insurance picked up the tab at $2800. My local dealer had a 2004 A6 3.0 Audi Certified with warranty till 2009 with 19K miles that they were asking $24,000 for. I'm not sure about the 4.2, but you should be able to pick up a 04 for around 21-22K with reasonable mileage and Audi's certified warrany. All I can say from my experience is do you self a favor and make sure the car has a warranty for as long as you plan to keep it. Mine is up in 2008 and I will be getting rid of the car on or before that date. I do have to say though, I LOVE MY CAR. Good Luck!!!

Did any one get finance w/ incentive? how much rate did you get? I have negotiated for an A6 and they offered me 5.9% APR. I know that Audi offers 2.9% APR for special but audi dealer told me that i can't get both, which are manufacture incentive and special rate for finance.
Now, they called me and said they can't even give me the 5.9%. At least they need to get 6.9%. Are they just playing w/ me or what? I'm wondering what's the best rate you can get?

Would you buy any luxury performance sedan w/o a warranty?

I've been reading this forum for a while now, it's been very helpful and I'd like to add my experience. I just picked up an '06 4.2 from Audi of Alexandria in VA, with tech and cold weather packages, 18" wheels, and heated steering wheel. I called them and over the phone they said $5000 off invoice. In the store, it was $6000 off and they threw in valet service. They weren't going to combine that with the low financing. In contrast, Tyson's Audi had a similar car with 4700 miles that they were asking about the same price for (mine had 78 when I test drove it). By the way, the '06s have maintenance for 4 years, while the '07s have 1 year. If you want the 4 years on an '07, it's $550.

Not too bad for 4 year. It's only $140 per year.
I certanily wish I can get $9300 off MSRP, that will be wonderful!
