Ouch...it seems so much...I think the MF is so darn unattractive for Audi's right now.
At this price, I'd probably head over to Infiniti for a G37
#182 of 348 Lease questions confused
Mar 16, 2008 (8:38 am)
I'm coming to the end of my '04 Audi A4 lease. The cars been in two accidents and has been repaired, but nonetheless I am stressed about what awaits me at turn-in inspection.
I visited the dealership yesterday and they informed me that i had $5000 of wear and tear allowance built into my lease. Of course this was in context of me saying i was interested in getting into an A3. (Note, i lost my copy of the lease agreement in a house fire so I'm flying blind.)
A few questions:
1) Does the $5000 allowance sound legit? Or is this a ploy to get me into another audi.
2) Does anyone know what the MF, etc is on an A3 in Southern California is right now?
Thank you in advance,

5000 seems a tad high, my tsx has 1500...but here's the trick, each "ding", no matter how big or small counts for 500. which means, they let me get away with 3 "dings" that cost no more than 500 bucks to repair. pretty tricky, i would check with audi financial. when i turned in my a4 last year, i had probably one noticeable scratch on my rear bumper. I turned it in without an inspection and i wasn't billed by Audi, they just billed me for the disposition fee and thats it.

Thanks for the reply. I checked and I do have $5000 in allowance. So I'm feeling a bit better. Maybe I'm just being paranoid.

Hi jkenik. $300 under dealer invoice is an excellent selling price for a 2008 Audi A3. The money factor that you were quoted looks good as well. It is right in line with what Audi's April buy rate was in the states that it is running its special enhanced lease offer on this car in, assuming that you are having your car's security deposit waived.

#188 of 348 June Lease Program?
Jun 17, 2008 (7:09 am)
I have been shopping around for an Audi A3, Manual, Premium Package and Open Sky - Lease 36 months/12K
The quotes I have been getting seem very hight to me: between $500 and $550.
What is the residual and money factore for such a car?
Is this due to the fact that they are trying to get rid of the 2008 A4 (the 1st answer i get from dealers when I inquired about the A3 is: "you should get an A4")???
Shoud I wait for July or August?
Thanks a lot for your help and advices.

It appears that there are no specail A3 lease deals currently in Connecticut. Does anyone know which states there are deals in at the current time?. The prices posted by nbaror are great compared to what is around here. I have purchased/leased cars out of state previously and have no problem traveling to get a better deal.
