#1275 of 4423 Breaking Lease for new car...
Apr 08, 2007 (10:34 pm)
Hi! I have a 2004 Audi A4 with 49,XXX miles on the car. I leased the car in May 2004 for $270 per month (inc. taxes) on a 4 yr, 10,000mi plan.
I still got a year to go on my lease and am looking to try to turn it back into audi to pick up a new a4. I guess the question is: What kind of penalties or fees am I most likely going to be tacked with by trying to break the lease early, as well as being over on mileage. Would the dealerships be "willing" to take a hit for me if i bought another audi through them?
I heard if the leasing was ending and I was over on mileage and were probably to lease another audi that it would be easy to get the overage on mileage taken care of. But then again I do still have a year left.
Please advise. Thanks again. Of course if the penalties are too high, I can just wait till next year, but would like to pick up another car.
Thanks again in advance!
#1276 of 4423 So Cal A4 Avant Quote
Apr 10, 2007 (5:22 pm)
Carman and all: Here is a quote from a SoCal dealer. How does it look?
2007 Audi A4 Avant
Premium package, Pearl paint, Bose Stereo, Blue Tooth, Sports Suspension
3 year, 10,000 mile lease
Money Factor .00093.
He first sent me $353.27 but he had wanted $2000.00 down and I rejected a down payment and asked for price, MF and residual. Then he gave me the above info without the monthly. (This price seems pretty good. I am wondering if he thought this was the sedan.)

Thanks for the great info once again...yep, you've helped with at least 5, and probably more people that I've pointed to these forums (although I re-registered again only recently). I also have a question about the Mini Cooper, so hopefully I'll see you over on that thread when you get a chance.

#1278 of 4423 2004 A4 lease expiring 16000 miles under
Apr 14, 2007 (12:20 pm)
Greetings Carman!! My 2004 Audi A4 1.8T's lease is to expire next month. We are currently 16000 miles under our allowed mileage. We would like to just drive a A4 2.0T with premium package and heated front seats off the lot paying the same lease as we have on our '04 383.84/month. Do you think the dealer where we leased the car from would allow us to do this? What is the best way to be properly compensated for our delivering the car significantly under mileage? Thanks.
#1279 of 4423 Help with A4 Lease

I need help. I want a A4 2.0 quattro, CVT, Sport, Titanium, Blue Tooth, Convenience, Navigation, Sirius radio. The TMV price is 39,666. I want to put $3500 out of pocket (to reduce my payments), 12K Miles per year, Audi maintenance, for 36 months. I would assume since the car is about the same price as the advertised A4 3.2 lease special that my payment would be similar but the dealer is saying the monthly is $500 per month including tax.
#1280 of 4423 2.0 S Line versus 3.2 regular
Apr 16, 2007 (11:11 am)
I am also trying to decide between the 2.0 fully loaded with S Line package or a fully loaded 3.2 non S-Line. Besides the s line logo, what else is cosmetically different?

It is better to keep the money, put it in an account and pay more monthly. Cap cost reduction benefits the bank disproportionally to the lessee, because if the car gets totalled early on you'll see nothing out of that money down. Since all good leases have GAP included in the payment anyway, the negative equity does not affect you. So keep the money in the bank and pay more per month.

A4 Avant w/ metallic paint, convenience pkg, premium pkg, bluetooth, heated seats, tire press system, man. sunshades. MSRP = $37,035 Edmunds invoice = $34,302
-36 month lease 12K per year
-"Internet special" price: $34,797
-$350 "processing fee" which the dealer says is taxed
as part of sale price
-$575 acquisition fee
-59% residual w/ purchase of Audi Care (58 without)
Seems to me that the $350 "processing fee" is really an addition to the sales price (particularly since they are claiming it will be taxed as such), BUT I'm wondering even with this charge if this is a reasonable offer on this vehicle. . .
If not, should my next step be to demand elimination of the fee or to make a counter offer in which I reduce the sales price?

About $850 over invoice with the fee.. You may be able to get the price down by the amount of the fee, but that is probably it... so, your price now looks good...
For a reality check, what payment are you quoted with these parameters, and what is the amount due at signing?

Does anyone know the current residual and money factor for a 2007 Audi A4 2.0t Fronttrak Manual w/ S-Line package?
