Since you used to own a BMW, audi is offering an extra $750 dollars off the cap cost. If you live in the NYC/NJ area I got a deal for an Audi A4 premium plus quattro with automatic transmission for $365 a month, $3799 due at signing, 10k a year, 36 months... DCH Millburn Audi in New Jersey. Audi Financial Services is offering a $750 discount to anyone who owned/leased a 2001 or newer BMW or Audi

I had heard about bimmer incentive program. Your deal looks good. does it include Audi care? The only thing I am not thrilled about is the wheels in premium plus package. how do you like the 10 spoke 17 inch wheels?

This is actually pretty sweet deal on closer look. MSRP according to audiusa.com is $38350. Do you know the final negotiated price, Money factor, and residual used in calculation.

No audi care but I think it was an extra $720 I believe? They said it does nothing to the residual and stuff. I'm not a really big fan of the 10 spokes... the sport package doesn't look much better either. I like the prestige wheels a lot, but that package includes the navigation MMI system, heard it was not worth it to add that. Not sure about the exact details but if I visit the dealership this weekend i'll keep you posted
Also it included the $750 extra Audi Financial is giving toward people who owned a BMW or Audi 2001 or newer for customer loyalty, and for beating BMW in growth for this time of year - some promotion. In my opinion it is way better looking than the 328 x drive and will save you a lot in fuel costs. I6 vs I4 turbo
#3361 of 4290 Good Deal? A4 Premium vs Premium Plus
Apr 20, 2010 (2:25 pm)
I'm debating between an A4 Premium or a Premium Plus. I would like metallic paint, wood trim (and a few options on the Premium) which brings MSRPs to $36,700 and $38,750, respectively.
Dealer has offered me $445/month for the Premium or $525/month for the Premium Plus on a 42-month lease with 12K miles per year and $2,000 due at signing. This also includes a BMW loyalty rebate ($750, I think) and all taxes.
Does this sound like a good deal to you guys? I feel like others are getting better deals on the Premium Plus, based on what I've read. The MSRP difference between the two cars is only $2,050 yet the sum of the difference in payments is $3,300. Even assuming taxes and interest, it seems like I'm not getting any residual benefit for upgrading.
Any thoughts on where these prices should be would be really helpful. Can buy the car in either Boston area or NYC area, if you know good dealers.
Thanks very much,

Sounds reasonable and 2K at sign off is very attractive. Although I agree with you, significant difference between payments, that's where the dealer is making money. I would probably still go with premium plus for LED daylights and nicer wheels. I am always saddened when an Audi does not announce its approach from the distance with LED headlights!! What is the final negotiated price on the premium plus?
I assume you are switching from a 3 series. How do you compare the handling and acceleration between the two, I will be in the same shoes in few months.

525 a mo with 2k down seems high. I'm looking at a P+ with B&O sticker was 39,200 got him down to 37,600. There in Rochester, not exacly NYC but not that far off. I would say you have room on the sale price. I got a similar deal 2k down on 42 mo 10k a yr payment will be 481 a mo. Also working on a deal with a leasing company that would be 0 down with a payment around 480 a mo for the same car. The catch is you need tier 1+ credit but he's saying he can bump someone with tier 1. I'll know for sure Friday i'll keep you guys posted.

Thanks for the input. I went to another dealer to try for a lower price on a Premium Plus, and was able to get a better deal. This deal, which I'm about to sign, is for a $38,950 car (Premium Plus Quattro Tiptronic with metallic paint, wood trim and all-weather floor mats) and includes Audi Care free maintenance. Total out-of-pocket is $2,000 and monthly payment (including tax) will be $485. This is for a 42-month (slightly longer term than before) lease with 12K miles per annum. I also have the benefit of a $750 BMW rebate included in those numbers.
Think this is a pretty good deal, so feel good about it. Am actually getting this car to replace a 2007 BMW 530xi. I haven't loved that car, to be honest, and was hoping to reduce my payments a little. The Audi seems like a great car, as it's more stylish and slightly larger than the 3-series. I have never been a particular fan of the current-generation 3-series and think the 2010/2011 models look a little bit dated. I haven't actually driven one to compare, however, so not sure about the handling/acceleration difference.
