Audi TT, Car Leasing, Convertible

Here is the information that you are looking for max19. If you were to lease a 2005 Audi TT 1.8T 225 HP coupe through Audi Financial Services right now for 48 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be a horrendous .00305 and 38%, respectively. As you can see, this is not a very good time to lease this car. You would be better off financing it. When you negotiate your deal, make sure to take the $1,500 dealer cash that is available on '05 TTs into account.

#5 of 148 2008 Audi TT Roadster
Mar 21, 2007 (8:49 am)
Well I guess I will be the first to list my deal on the NEW TT Roadster! Here is my deal, CarMan (an others), please comment when you have some time.
2008 Audi TT Roadster 2.0 TFSI
Brilliant Black with Limestone Gray Leather/Alcantara
Bose Surround Sound
Audi Navigation Plus
Bi-xenon adaptive headlights
18 inch 7 arm alloy wheels with Z rated tires
Bluetooth cell phone prep
MSRP with destination = $45,570
Agreed sale price = $43,776 (4% off MSRP)
Residual = 57%
Term = 36 months
Money Factor = .00240 (didn't think a car this new and this hot would have a very good money factor - and it didn't, although not horrible, i.e. Porsche)
Drive off is $3K, which includes $700 to the state of Arizona for plates and gov't fees, $575 for acquisition fee, $388 for doc fee and $1337 cap cost reduction.
Total monthly is $696/mo.
Any advice. Great deal? I think not. Bad deal? I think not. I look at it as being the best I could do under the circumstances. The new TT roadster is not even out yet, waiting lists exist and the car has been getting rave reviews - so I was surprised to finally find a dealer who would give me 4% off - most told me 1% off tops! So, why do I feel like it is not a good deal???? Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions from anyone......

Congratulations on your new Audi TT, lbh2315. I've always liked this car and the 2008 model is even better than the previous generation was. The '08 TT roadster is supposedly more rigid than the old coupe was.
It looks like the dealer that you got your TT from marked up its money factor a little bit to add additional profit to your deal. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of an '08 TT 2.0T roadster is only .00190 (.00015 higher with the security deposit waived). Having said this, the $1,800 discount that you were quoted seems pretty reasonable for a redesigned model that was just introduced. Overall, I'd say that this isn't a bad deal for such a new car.

#8 of 148 Looking for May Lease #'s
May 05, 2007 (7:33 am)
So far this year I have attacked the same Dealer for a '07 Jetta Wolfsburg, '07 Passat Wolfsburg both for my daughter's Now Dad is interested in leasing a '08 TT.
What are the MF and RV's for 36/48/60 months, 10k miles. If numbers crunch correct I'm taking the chain saw to the dealer and cut a deal! My interest's align with the 2.0T w premimum pkg/heated seats/AUTO/xeon lights/power roof. I guess I must be getting soft in my older years! Any suggestions for options or approaches to reduce the cost's. I feel I hammered the dealer fairly well for the two VW's, based on what I have read in the respective forums. Not certain he'll move as far this time of year and this vehicle!

Greetings. I am new to this site and to the leasing process. I have always bought cars for cash. I am going to try to lease a new Audi TT (not sure whether it will be a convertible or a coupe). I would appreciate any advice on the specifics of lease terms that may be available for the new TT. I live in the Washington DC area and have some flexibility as to where I purchase the car. Depending on the lease terms, I might prefer to buy the vehicle, so any advice on what kind of a purchase deal I could get would also be appreciated. I would imagine that Audi would like to get some of these cars out on the road, and that with the end of the month coming up there might be some flexiblilty on price. Thanks in advance for any help.

I am interested in leasing or the premium ownership program on an A4 3.0 conv with heated sports seats, blue tooth, nav, and thats it. What have been your purchasing experiences with the lease for premium ownership? How much have the dealers been neg?

You did not do badly on your lease... I got a similar option package without Nav and Bluetooth, but got the Sirius radio and baseball optic stitching, so our bottom lines are similar. Mine, very quickly, is $4,000 down for inceptions and cost cap... $660 per month on a 24-month lease. I thought it was a little high, but it compared favorably to my 2003 Jaguar S-Type.
The money factors are not as good as when we leased my wife's 2006 A6, and I guess there is a premium to be paid to be one of the first to have the automobile.
I ordered the car on May 1st and my salesman says I should have it early to mid-July. From what you heard about waiting lists, does that sound reasonable? As you did, I also got $1,800 off of sticker... about 4%.
In south Florida it is difficult to get a deal on any newly released car. You certainly pay a premium to be the first on your block, but with this shape and performance, I think it's worth it.
Best of luck with your vehicle and many safe and exciting miles.
#12 of 148 One point of information on the Bose system
May 24, 2007 (9:24 pm)
All prospective purchasers: Please note that the $1,000 Bose system is not a surround sound system on the TT. I tried it out on the showroom floor and one writer said it needed a little more bass, which I do agree with, so I plan on doing a little upgrading of the system with a sub-woofer and possibly a couple of nice Polk Audio rounds in the kick panels.
The Bose radio does come with the Audiopilot, which monitors ambient noise in the cockpit and compensates with more volume when there is more noise intruding in the cockpit.
Also, the system is rated at 255 watts and I believe it has 11 speakers.
