Jan 30, 2007 (1:20 pm)
Thanks for the help Car Man. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the lease last night. 2007 Quartz Gray, Quattro S-Line 6MT. Also had Conv. Pkg and Bluetooth. Here's how it went:
Res: 56% - added audi maintenance
I paid the $575 acq. fee, the $550 maintenance, tag and dealer fees, and $700 cap reduction (total $2000 down). I know I should not have, but I did. They bought my trade for $1500 more than I had been offered anywhere else, so I figured it was sort of free money.
Payment: $459 pre tax
I also made them throw in some mugs and keychains to make myself feel better. All in all, I am very excited. I have wanted an A4 since 2003. Thanks for all the great insight.
#1129 of 4423 Lease Special Money Factor....
Jan 30, 2007 (8:05 pm)
When I run the calculations for the lease special going on right now for the A4 2.0T CVT I cant quite figure out what the money factor is for the car. When looking at the MSRP fo $30,960 and the residual of $18266, the basic rental charge for 36 mos. is $352.60/mo.
This only leaves $7/month for interest. From the calculation process I saw on an earlier message I see the following possible Money Factor:
if....($30,960+18266)*MF = Monthly Interest Payment, then....
MF =Monthly Interest Payment / (30960+18266) and at $7/month in interest, the money factor works out to be about .00015
This seems significantly lower than what others are saying on this forum. What am I doing wrong?
if this in fact correct, do they transfer that money factor to the A4's that are the seme car, but different opions?

You are missing one variable: the selling price..
In your calculations, you assume that the MSRP is the CAP cost, but most likely, it is some number less than that.

2007 A4, metalic paint, with premium, convenience, cold package.
12K mile/yr, and Audi care for 36 month (includes scheduled maintanance)
Initial payment (includes first month payment and everything) = 1100
Monthly payment 440 (inculdes 8% sales tax)
#1132 of 4423 leasing an Audi A4
Jan 30, 2007 (9:42 pm)
I recently went ahead with getting a lease on an 07 Audi A4 cvt with a base msrp of around 33k but got it down to invoice around 31 k. My drive off was 925 and 417 a month including orange county sales tax. I got a black on black with blue tooth, premium, and convenience, for a 3 year lease 12000 miles a year. Was this a decent deal or was I ripped off?
#1133 of 4423 maintainance for a german car
Jan 30, 2007 (9:47 pm)
hydesmile the cost to maintain this car for 36 months is $500.00 and I just recently came from the dealer last week and they usually give the first 5k miles free then afterwards it should add up to 500 for 36 months
#1134 of 4423 Re: Lease 2006 A4 or buy it cash????? [a4fan]

Hi a4fan. The problem with leasing pre-owned vehicles is that manufacturers usually do not provide as much support on them as they do on new vehicle leases. There is a good chance that you will find that it is actually less expensive to lease s similar brand new 2007 Audi A4 than it is to lease a certified pre-owned one. If you are set on leasing, make sure to compare the cost of leasing the CPO A4 that you are considering to the cost of leasing a new one. If you really want to go used, then you may be better off financing or leasing your A4.

Jan 31, 2007 (2:55 am)
Hello jasonscott. Audi is currently running a special lease program on 2007 A4 Convertibles, but its special program on convertible models is not as attractive as the one it is currently running on A4 Sedans.
You can use the following lease calculator to work up lease payments: Edmunds.com Lease Calculator. You also can calculate them on your own by using the formula that is outlined in the following article: Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.
You would be better off trying the following discussion for feedback on what color seats to get: "Audi A4 2005+".

Hi alcarmedia. $250 over dealer invoice is a very good price for an Audi A4. Furthermore, the money factor that you were quoted for this car is right in line with Audi Financial Services' buy rate for it. The two main profit centers on your lease for this dealer look good to me. If you like the car, I personally don't see any reason not to pull the trigger on this deal.
