#1728 of 4422 A4 2.0T AWD Lease
Feb 25, 2008 (2:24 pm)
Any help would be appreciated.
Looking to replace a financed 2003.5 1.8T 5spd with a 2008 2.0T AWD 6spd by the end of the month if the deal works.
Region is Columbus, OH. Car is financed through Audi Financial and will be paid off prior to a new lease and sold at a later date.
What should I be shooting for a money factor and amount over invoice?
Looking at 12k for either a 36 or 42 month term.
Are there any programs out there that I should be aware of?
Also whats the story with the special edition? All I want is the sport suspension, heated seats, CD and leather interior.
Thanks in advance.

Go up to Cleveland. Or call Fred Baker Audi and ask for Jeff. He is my salesman and has been very upfront, honest and helpful. Im buying my A4 from him. Money factor .00025 (less than one percent). Im slightly over invoice. Give him a call.

What sounds like a good deal? $875/month? It was Momentum Audi.

Dear Car Man,
This is such a great resource/forum, I wish I discovered it earlier in the process!
We are ready to lease a 2008 Avant. The MSRP the way we want the car is about $35,800. With what we are told is a money factor of .00022, our payments with 5% tax included are quoted at $447, bank fee $575 and all other fees $245. Total $1267 drive out.
I understand that we can drop our monthly payments for about $27 per Thousand down, is that correct? Most importantly, are we near a fair deal given market or are we lost in smoke?
What I would like is to get payments at $300 or so with $3200 total drive out with taxes but may be dreaming, thanks for your help. Incidentally we can buy/register in New York or Masachusetts as our driving is split. We can get by with 10k per year, but should we ask for more? Also, not sure on whether deals will improve in coming months or not, we don't really need the car until May.
Thank you and any other ears out there!
#1733 of 4422 2008 A4 lease rates - PA
Feb 26, 2008 (8:46 am)
I have been a lurker for sometime on these forums, but formally got an account to return the information sharing. It has been a valuable resource for me on my last few car purchases and leases.
I looked at the 2008 A4 Quattro 2.0T recently here in PA. Ultimately decided to go another avenue (not the Audi)..... but here is the information I was quoted last weekend:
2008 A4 Quattro 2.0T
- MF = 0.00065
- Residual = 58%
After some lengthy discussions, the salesperson brought the Special Edition to my attention. Tried to position it as a major secret.... and that it is the "bridge" between the 2008 model and the 2009 model which will have a lot more standard features.
For the 2008 Special Edition A4 Quattor 2.0T:
- MF = 0.00149
- Residual = 60%
His first pass at 2 different special edition prices were not that great, about $700 above the TMV price. Easily could have gotten them down more though.
Just wanted to reciprocate the sharing!
#1734 of 4422 Missing option in Edmunds.com(?)
Feb 29, 2008 (9:32 am)
Am I going crazy..... I am looking to price out (MSRP and dealer cost) an A4 and PREMIUM PKG is not an option (premium PAINT is there for $750, but that's not what I am looking for - the pkg I need is $850 MSRP). Anyone have a 'fix'?
Also, can someone please confirm the money factor buy rate on an A4,2.0,Quattro,Conv,Nav (not the SE) for NY/NJ area - is it .00025 till march 4th? (12k miles/yr)
#1735 of 4422 Re: Missing option in Edmunds.com(?) [eastbeast]
Feb 29, 2008 (3:07 pm)
I would assume that since the invoice on the $750 premium paint is $698, the $850 premium pkg invoice is probably around $790. I'm sure it's not too far off for your figuring purposes.

Feb 29, 2008 (3:21 pm)
Thanks - I found it elsewhere (and you are very accurate with the $790 guess - it's actually $791). My big problem right now is needing confirmation of the money factors. Anyone please jump in... need money factors asap.

I finally found a tolerable lease deal in NJ. DCH Audi of Millburn was the last dealer I tried - see my previous post. The final numbers were 2000.00 total out the door, 400.00 per month taxes included, 15,000 miles per year, 36 month lease, Audi care included. The car is the A4 w/ premium package, automatic/tiptronic trans, heated front seats, light silver with black leather.
The sales people were great, they started out at 435 a month w/o Audi Care and wound up with 410 mo after listening to the other dealers' numbers. I told the salesman I really wanted to be at or under 400 mo he talked to the sales manager one time, for two minutes, and it was done. There was no back and forth, I can't do it but let me re-work the numbers or check with my boss, etc. I walked in with my other offers and in thirty minutes I had a deal I could live with.
As a side note, DCH Audi has a special customer service rating held by only 17 of the 200 Audi dealers. I'm sure the salesman was flexible because it was Feb 28th and I had the name of a friend of a friend but, like I said, it was the best I could come up with for central and northern NJ and they seemed genuinely nice.
Hope the info helps.
