I am looking on the following deal for Friday PM:
Audi A4 Quattro 2.0T Deep Blue Metallic Pearl
59% residual 20242
$2415.68 down (Doc fee $84, Aquisition $575, NY Tire Fee $12.50, Tax $1294.65)
Dealer to pay off last two payments ($389 ea) on current lease.
What do you think?
Also, my old car 2003 A4 is over miles. They are telling me I owe milage overage, and the car needs new tires. Any ideas on this? (not complaining, just checking).

What numbers do I need to post so you guys can look over it and reassure me that I got a good deal?

#905 of 4423 Audi Lease - $400 Service Penalty
Dec 03, 2006 (7:34 am)
I am writing to ask for experiences with a situation that I have been receiving mixed responses from Audi dealers.
when I went to the dealer yesterday to lease an A4, contrary to information I was given by another dealer 40 miles away, this dealer told me that there is a $400 penalty levied by Audi at the end of lease if I do not have authorized Audi dealers service the 15K and 25K maintenance. These are the service check-ups that the lease owner has to pay out of pocket. Thus, they recommended purchasing the $550 service contract, which is actually a good deal with the lease was longer than 24 months. I am only interested in leasing the car for 24 months.
I asked for a copy of the lease contract. Section 18 from Audi indicates that the lease owner is required to service the car using Audi service and parts or service and parts of similar quality. Section 18 does not stipulate a mandatory requiremet that all service work be performed by Audi dealers. However, the dealer adds this requirement into the contract by typing in the comments section.
While in the office of the dealer requiring this, I called 2 other dealers in the area. One told me he was unsure of this requirement. Another told me that if I am paying for the service, I should be able to service it wherever I want, so long as the check-list reconmmended by Audi in the manual is fulfilled. I tried to call Audi Financial services to get an authoritative answer but they were closed for the weekend.
Anyone willing to share similar experiences or information about this $400 penalty or service requirement is appreciated. I need to buy a car today or tomorrow.

What does 550 cover?
My dealer said its of no use since its around 2 check ups and it would cost 200 on the whole.

Wedensday nov 29, in our local newspaper it had a local audi dealers ad approved by audi usa. It was the same lease terms as november but must take delievery by jan 2, 2oo7. Called my sales person and he checked w/ his manager who claims this ad is for the people who ordered the cars in the november lease, yet since most cars on back log they must take delievery by the jan. date
Needles to say I am going to argue this one.

According to the dealers in the SF Bay Area, it is worth it to buy the $550 service contract because it covers all of the service checkups required even beyond the 30K miles 24-month lease. I believe the 550 contract covers up to 45K miles.
You see, I was told the exact opposite of 2 checkups should only cost $200. I am told that the 15K maintenance will probably run about $300 and the 25K maintenance will be roughly $225. This will include synthentic oil changes, air filter, pollen filter, and possibly other items, and the Audi technician's time at $140 per hour.
I am wondering if anyone has heard whether Audi penalizes you $400 if you do not service your car at their dealerships.

The finance manager at Stevens Creek Audi pushed me away from buying the service plan since I will only have the car for 24 months. He says on 36 month leases it actually increases the residual lowering your monthly payments.
Here are my finance details... I think I got a very high residual rate! 75%?
2007 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro 200 HP 6 speed
Exterior Deep Sea Blue Pearl Effect 475.00
Convenience package 2,100.00
Premium package 800.00
Gross cap: 32,834.50 (price of the car)
Cap reduction: 1196.66 (my down payment towards making the car cheaper)
Adjusted cap: 31637.84
Residual value: 25137.55 (this is the purchase price if I want the car at lease end)
Depreciation: 6500.29 (the difference between adjusted cap and residual)
Rent charge: 2289.23 (interest)
Total of base monthly: 8789.52 (depreciation plus rent charge)
Lease payments: 24 months
Base monthly payment: 366.23
Tax: 30.21 (CA 8.25%)
Total monthly payment: 396.44
Total payments: 12068.13 (monthly payment x 23 months + total down of 2600.01 + turn in fee of 350.00)
Down payment explained:
Cap reduction: 1196.66
Taxes on cap reduction: 98.72 (you would pay these even if you did $0 down and the cap reduction was rolled into the monthly?)
First monthly payment: 396.44
Acquisition fee: 575.00
License fees: 277.00
Sales tax: 47.44 (for what?)
CA tire fee: 8.25
WOW, that's allot of numbers but I think I am understanding things a little better now that they are on the computer and not this lengthy consumer lease agreement =). Anyway, how did I do, what points of the lease could I have worked on more if all?
