#1875 of 4312 Re: A4 Lease 04/24/08 [rich50]

Hi, I am looking for some advice. My local Audi dealer in Buffalo is pretty bad and has had nothing but bad words abound by friends and co-workers. I went there looking for a A4 Cabrio (For Lease or possible purchase of a pre-owned) and they had none. The salespeople did not even seem very enthused to offer me any info or point me toward another car. Very disappointed.
So I went to Rochester, NY and found a nice 2005 Cabrio with 18K miles but not certified (Sticker was 32k got dealer down to 28k).. I found comparable cars which were certified for 27-28k at other dealers much further away. I want to take advantage of the .9% financing on a 2005/6... but $2500 extra is what it would take! Yuk.
So, now the $479/$499 A4 Cabrio lease deals are here, and I would like to get a new A4 Quattro 2.0 (or 3.2) with NAV. And I am apprehensive about both dealers I have went to because they seemed like it would be a hardship to even look for a car that fit the lease deal (and the Rochester one did plead ignorance to the lease deal in the first place).
Now I know there seem to be few Cabs in this area, what would be my best bet to find a lease or purchase vehicle? Any recommended dealers in the Northeast?

This offer seems to good to be true. Any comments/direction would be greatly appreciated!
2008 A4 2.0T Quattro AT w/ SE pkg, S-Line pkg, Bose, Bluetooth, iPOD, and Audicare
-36 months/12K months
-$345 total due at signing
-monthly payments of $408 + tax
-MF = .00002
-residual = 54%
-MSRP (as quoted by the dealer) = $38,250
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and I know everyone is trying to move their 2008's to get ready for the new models, but this seems impossible.

I'm in NY and the best offer that I've gotten is:
2008 A4 Quattro SE ,automatic,convenience package,bluetooth,wood trim and Ipod for
$465 per month
Sales tax/DMV up front
15K miles/ 36 month lease
Sale price $34,800
Does this look right? I've been to 4 dealers and they are all in this ballpark.

Apologies beforehand as this might be slightly off topic. I've posted a similar question under the S4 category, but this forum seems to have the most traffic w/r/t lease questions...
I'm curious about the current money factor for the RS4 sedan (12K miles, 36 months). Any other useful info on residuals, incentives, and how much I can expect to pay at, under, or over invoice would also be greatly appreciated!
Also, how easy is it to break a current lease with Audi (an A4) to start a new lease on the RS4?

using your numbers, just plug them into
the payment should be $428
if you add audicare to the lease at $650, the payment would be $446
if you add the audi care and the bank fee at $575, the payment would be $462
so if the inceptions are for tax, title, and registration
the audicare and bank fee are included in the lease payment
$465 is in the neighborhood
according to edmunds.com the A4 you described has an MSRP of $37350 has an invoice price of $34792, so your sell price of $34800 is pretty good.

Thanks loggie. The bank fee is in the payment but not the Audi care. I'm going to push for the Audi care and see what happens.
Thanks again for the help!
#1882 of 4312 SE with dolphin gray metallic
May 27, 2008 (11:21 am)
My dealer tells me there is a $750 charge for Special Edition A4 with dolphin gray metallic. I know that for the regular versions, some metallic colors cost $475 and others are $750 (including dolphin gray metallic), but I thought the special editions had all metallic colors available and included with no additional charge.
Does anyone know if this is true?

The dealer is right in this case. The "free colors" are brilliant black, ibis white, and brilliant red. Most metallic and pearl effects are $475 with dolphin gray and phantom black being $750.

Thanks, I think that is correct too. Edmunds doesn't show it, so I was confused.
One correction, though. On the Special Editions, the metallic paint that costs $475 (for example quartz gray metallic and silver metallic) is included in the pricing.
