Hi pfje. You're only being given a $100 discount on the A3 that you are interested in . I am not personally all that familiar with what the market is like for the A3 right now, but that's not a very good deal. Combine the lack of discount with this car's lousy lease program and it becomes a pretty expensive vehicle to lease.
You never mentioned what model year the car that you are considering leasing is, so for now I will assume it is a 2008 model. Through October 1st, Audi Financial Services' 24 month, 15,000 mile per year buy rate lease money factor and residual value for the 2008 A3 2.0T Sedan with the S-Line Package are .00307 and 58%, respectively. Using these numbers, an MSRP of $31,385, and a selling price of $31,284, I estimate that your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around a whopping $697. There are a TON of nice vehicles out there that you could get for less than that.

Been told by a couple of local dealers that a new leasing incentive just started for the A3's this month. Any idea how long the new incentives will last? Looking to get a 2008 2.0T w/ Premium Package, Open Sky, and iPod Interface. 36 month lease 12,000 miles per year.
#153 of 348 Early return of Premier Purchased A3
Oct 18, 2007 (6:47 pm)
I am wondering if it's possible to return a premier purchased A3 back to Audi early ? Currently I have 24-month payments to go.

My Audi dealer told me that they have dealer cash until October 26th. Seems like an odd date for the cash to end. Any idea of when it really ends? Am looking at a 2007 A3 w/premium, open sky, metallic paint and 6 CD. Any idea of price? They offered $27,900. Thanks for comments!

Iím looking to lease a 2008 A3 2.0T S tronic with Preminum package, open sky, and ipod interface. My local dealer offers me this:
MSRP Price: $32,385.00
Invoice Price: $29,845.00
Your Price: $29,500.00
Lease 36 months at 10K miles per year:
Drive Off: $2,000.00
36 months at: $365.01 + Tax
What do you think? Is this a good price or still can negotiable?
#157 of 348 Leasing from Audi Financial
Dec 07, 2007 (11:43 am)
It is a good product, but whatever you do, don't use Audi Financial for a lease.
Who ever you do use, be prepared at the end of the lease to get charged plenty. Audi uses a third party to inspect cars, and this third party has nothing to loose in charging for bogus wear and tear charges. Then they will take the car off the lot the same day, so if you do have an issue, it cannot be re-inspected. It reaks of rip-off. BMW has a much better turn in program, and they seem to be honest. If you really want this car, I would purchase it rather then lease. If you do end up leasing, I will wager that it will be your last Audi.

It looks like the lease payment is too low, maybe a typo?
Here's the current A3 lease deal Audi is offering, seen on a California Audi dealer site:
$349* lease per month for 36 months
Now through January 2, 2008
Down payment: $2,499
Refundable security deposit: $350
Acquisition fee: $575
First month's payment: $349
Amount due at lease inception: $3,773
Excludes taxes, title and dealer fees
*36-mo. closed-end lease offered to qualified customers by Audi Financial Services through participating dealers. Must take delivery by 1/2/2008. Rate based on $30,785 MSRP of 2008 Audi A3 2.0 T with DSG, Premium package, open sky panoramic roof and destination charge. Purchase option at lease end for $16,932.
I'd LOVE to get an A3 for $279 a month if that's true

Wait, I see it! You're right, $279 per month in DC! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Why would Audi have such a different program between east and west coast?
