#2 of 4293 current lease a4 avant
Aug 31, 2005 (7:34 am)
do you know if the current deal $2k down, $350 month, 10k miles, 2.0t quattro for 2 years applies for the avant as well?
and what kind of monthly payment would I be looking at if I did $0 down for the same time frame except 15k miles?

Hi gflo1. Audi's August lease program, which is scheduled to run through September 6th, for these 2006 A4 2.0 Sedan with quattro and 2006 Audi A4 2.0Avant are exactly the same. The only thing that would cause these two models to have different lease payments is the fact that they are priced a little differently. If you provide me with the full MSRP (with the destination charge added in) and an approximate selling price for the vehicle that you are interested in leasing, I would be happy to estimate what sort of lease payment you can expect it to have for a zero down lease with 15,000 miles per year. Post a reminder in this discussion with this information in a few days, by then I should have an idea of what Audi's new September lease program is like. Talk to you soon.

I've got a very similar question. I'm working on a deal to get the last '05 3.2 Avant on the lot. The specs of the lease sound a bit elevated. To get a $450.mo total payment on a three year lease, with only 10k miles/yr, I have to put down over $7K. The MSRP is over $43K, but the selling price is $40,200 (about $750 over invoice). I'm curious how everyone is getting equal payments than my potential deal when they put almost nothing down (on an A4 sedan). Is it the money factor on Avants that's driving the monthly payment up? Do you by chance know what the typical money factor is on an '05 Avant, vs. an '06 Avant? Thanks.

I have not gone into discussions yet for purchasing so unsure as to how much it should cost. However, I would like to know the maximum I should be paying. Additionally, I currently own an Audi, so I was wondering if that loyalty program was still in effect.

I need to lease a new car within 4 weeks and have tentatively decided on the 2006 A4 3.2 Quattro. I recently went to the dealership in Santa Monica; they were extremely helpful, but I'm afraid they might take "advantage" of me (I'm female in my late 40's and doing this on my own). I'm interested in a 36 month lease and low monthly payments. I do not currently own an Audi.
Help. Thanks. clueless in LA

Hi, you just missed out on the deal that expired on the 6th. Just to give you an approximate, your payment on any lease would be, at a minimum, $100 higher per month. I'm working with someone who's trying to get me the special offer even though it expired. I'm supposed to know within the next few hours if he can make it happen. If he can, I'll be driving a new Audi.
If it happens, I can refer you to him, but there's no contact info allowed on this post, so I'm not sure how to exchange information.
Here's a tip, DO NOT work with just any salesman, ask for the Internet/Fleet salesman and have an approximate idea of the invoice price. Try to deal from invoice rather then from MSRP.

Thanks. I found on the net ( CarPrices) the invoice for this model. It was almost $1200 less than the dealer invoice price I read at the dealership. That's when I became concerned about how I was being treated by the salesperson.
How much wiggle room do you think I have re: invoice price and packages?
I'm curious, why would I ask for the Internet/Fleet salesperson?

Depending on when you buy, you have plenty of wiggle room. I was being offered the car at $1500 below invoice. This isn't because they were willing to take a loss, but because of MFG rebate and incentives that the consumer doesn't know about. However, they'll be more stingy on the 2006 models, I was shopping for the 2005.5, which is the same as the 2006. I don't think they're offering any lease on the 2006 3.2's yet.
But as I said, the money factor is now .0025 from .00072, which expired on 9/6/05. So if you get one now, you'll pay a pretty penny.
Why the Internet/Fleet salesperson? Because when you ask for them, they know that you've done your homework and will try to give you a better deal. A regular salesman, on the other hand, will not even match that deal. One negotiates from MSRP down and the other from Invoice up.

Thanks for the prompt response.
As my screen name implies I am clueless.
1. What is the money factor?
2. Where did you, as a wise, but mere, consumer find out about the MFG rebate and other incentives? Are these incentives that the MFG offers the dealer? All dealers?
3. It seems like I would do better shopping for a 2005.5 (it is the new body style).
4. A woman's mag referenced a web site thru the better business bureau that rated dealerships. Unfortunately, it was not a viable site. Are you aware of any source (preferably free) that rates the dealerships ala J.D. Powers?
thanks. thanks. thanks.
