#1036 of 4423 plan to lease an A4 quattro today
Jan 02, 2007 (8:13 am)
Carman and friends,
Happy 07 all!
I have reworked the $$numbers with my local Audi dealer, but before I sign, I would like to get your opinion for the A4 2007 Quattro
Initial cap cost $31,550: acqu fee upfront: 575, total initial fees $754; total annual fees: $85, total monthly payment $377; LEV 73.00% and LE Value: $24,462. 15k miles/yr
Upfront due at start includes: $377 1st month, Registration $85; ACQ fee: $575; Doc fees: $179 and acq tax $28.
Premium pkg, quattro, hot red color,heated seats
They have offered to buy my 2002 ML 320 with 63,000 miles for $12,500. Thanks to Carman, I will put that money in the bank, not the lease.
Have I missed anything?

The only thing I can suggest, as I did b/c it was suggested by Carman et al, is to wrap up the acq & doc fees into your monthly payment. It raises your payment a bit but it is better to drive off with paying as little up front as possible. The only fee that my dealer would not wrap up into the monthly was the DMV license fee.

Hey there...can anymore recommend a dealer in Southern California that gave them a great A4 lease deal? Like everyone else, looking to get one today. Thanks everyone!

Nice deal. does that 377 include tax? I have a deal with same MSRP and $24,462 cap cost, but my payments are coming out at $386/mth incl. taxes. If I keep my out of pocket to the 1st payment and wrap the rest of the up front (acq, DMV, misc), payments go to $428 incl tax. What is your total out of pocket on delivery?

The taxes on this deal total $461, which appear to be rolled into the lease. The breakdown at this point for total due at start is:
First monthly: $377.78
ACQ fee: 575
Documentary fee: 179
ACQ tax: 28
total inception: 1,245 which they'd like at the start.
I think carman would suggest we roll that right into the lease, which I may do. My car arrives on Friday so I still have time to work on the details.
Does that work?

looks right. your registration and taxes look lower, but I'm in NJ. Most states have lower everything than NJ...
I will probably roll the fees into my payment. It puts me at $429/mth for the 24 months.
It's higher than what I originally wanted to go, but it's a great car and it will make the wife happy - it's really her car. We were looking at the Saturn Aura XR before I came across this special lease. The Aura's a nice car, but my wife really lit up when she drove the A4 plus the AWD is a plus here! That's worth the price of admission...
Enjoy your A4!!!

I promised to let you know how I did with my lease. Your salesperson was not available. So, I talked to another one.
Here is what I got:
A4 2.0T Quattro
Black and Ebony
Selling Price: 34,234 (Invoice + $200) By the way, apparently, invoice includes $495 adv and prep fees.
Monthly Payment: 397.75 + Tax
Fees: 575 + 169 + 250(DMV)
I wish I could have gotten this car for less than invoice, but...
What do you guys think - good deal or not?

sounds like a decent deal. I almost bought the same car. I was debating about bumping up to the conv. pkg and the dark wood int. trim, but I was already over where I wanted to be.
What did you think of the dealership? I was surprised that they really didn't want to haggle and that their 1st offer was pretty decent. I guess they've been moving alot of these A4's, that they don't need to give them away...
Good luck with the car!

Took the plunge today and leased a 2.0T auto quattro black/black A4 with conv, prem, audio, bluetooth, sport suspension (not the S-line package). Payments come to about 437+tax since i got the buy rate MF and 73% residual. My final price was 6% off MSRP (before the dest fee and adding back the dest fee after the discount) so it came to about $100 below invoice. The thing that made a big difference when I drove was the sport suspension... love the way the car handles and I look forward to 2 yrs of fun! Thanks a lot everyone with all your helpful postings and a special thank you to Car_Man.
#1045 of 4423 Put a downpay on A4 Quattro Today last minute!

After seeing the "Bloomberg Special" rate on Friday 12/29/06 for $319/month lease + 1065 upfront down + 575 acq. fee I decided to take a look at leasing the A4.
Read through most of people's deals here on the board, and decided to hop over to westside (I am in NYC) to Zumbachs (sp?).
Dealer was not well-staffed. Wanted to test drive the A4 Quattro 2.0T w/Sports Suspension, was told that they don't really stock those. Ended up test-driving a 3.2 manual. Okay feeling, kinda light on steering.
Dealer gave a pretty poor deal and was refusing to negotiate because they don't really have inventory. This is the rate they gave me:
Quartz Metallic w/tiptronic, heated Seats
Selling Price: $32,985 (would not even budge a penny!)
Monthly Payment (incl. tax): 472.30 (rolled acq. fees in)
Total upfront at pickup: ~ 760 = 472.30 + TTL + doc. fees.
Went back to the office, made a call to Great Neck's Audi, and got quote for exact same car:
Selling Price: $32,800
Monthly Payment: $464.94 (including tax)
Total upfront at pickup: ~ 680-700? (not really sure, didn't get confirmation)
Called a third dealer in Lynbrook, Long Island and got quoted for a pearl paint car:
Selling Price: $32,710 (about 360 over invoice)
Monthly Payment: $450 (including tax)
Total upfront at pickup: ~660 (including 1st month, TTL, tire fees, etc.)
Overall, I think I paid about 360 over the invoice, but I did this last minute at around 7:30pm over the phone, so I didn't bargain for the last couple of hundred dollars. And the reason that I went with this dealer is that they don't really have any other "dealer fees" added into the #s, which is pretty good since they lumped everything into the Selling price. Probably could have lowered the overall monthly payment by about $15 (360/24), but I guess it's better to get in on this deal while it is still available.
Thanks to all who shared their experiences and how to demystify leasing!
