#345 of 444 Audi A3 2008 pricing?
Sep 11, 2007 (3:22 pm)
I'm considering trading my wonderful, precious Z4 to a more practical Audi A3. I need to drive a lot more in the future in a more demanding climate etc. etc.
Anyway, I checked the pricing in Edmunds, and the MSRP of a 2.0 T with automatic transmission and the options I wanted was $33,070. Invoice was $30,614 and the TMV was $32,963! In other words, it seems that people are paying close to the MSRP for the 2008 A3.
Is this true? Has anyone bought a 2008 A3 recently? If yes, what kind of deals have you been able to negotiate? I'm in Southern California.
Thanks so much for any assistance! I made a great deal on my Z4 three years ago and want to go to the dealership prepared this time, too...

I'm in practically the same boat Z4girl, only I'm in Ohio instead of beautiful, sunny Southern California. So I have the same question. Anyone getting great deals on the '08 A3? I'm not paying close to sticker. If that's what it takes, I'll shop on.

Buy used. Sadly the A3's resale isn't so bueno, so you can get a used 1 year old model for about 33% off MSRP.

Just get 4 or 5 quotes from your nearest Audi dealers' internet departments (yes, this might mean going 120 miles out or so), and pick the lowest one; it's likely to be a very good price!

Just got a quote for 2007 A3:
2007 Audi A3 2.0T DSG
Misano Red Pearl Effect
S Line Package
Open Sky System
Special Internet Price: $28,289
Was this a fair price for 07 model?

Looks like a fair price to me.... 3K+ below MSRP is a very good deal on an A3.
#351 of 444 Audi Care Charge

Looking at a new 2007 A3. MSRP is $32730 which includes $590 for Audi Care and $995 for Protection Package. The offer is $27900. I know that Audi dropped the free maintenance program and this dealer told me that all Audi dealers will accept this. The protection package I feel is bogus. How do I know what the dealer's invoice was for these two items and can I try to get a lower offer because of these two items. Can I do better than the $27900 offer. They seem eager to get rid of the 2007 - they already have the 2008's on the lot. Thanks for all comments.

Audi Care is indeed not a requirement so now you have to pay for it. $500 would be reasonable.
Protection package isn't a factory option, so the dealer will rape you on this one? What is it? what does it include? I can't imagine it to be worth more than $300.

It includes sealant for paint and interior. Dealer is somewhat near an airport, so they say that it helps keep their cars nice... Yea, right!

What type of $$$ (dealer cash to customer)is available for 2007 A4 purchase? Offer is $27900 for a new 2007 A4 2.0T w/auto trans, wood, premium and blue paint that carries a $750 charge. Can I get them down lower? Thanks in advance.
