it does include audi care - they say they put it in for free
the dealer disclosure form also says
residual (base) 49.00
residual (bump) 2.00
i assume this means 51% residual value
the disclosure they gave me also says
back end 345.60
total profit 2233.60
he said they have to make a little profit or it is not worth it
do the dealerships buy the car at vehicle cost or less?
they say this is there last 2007 and if i get a 2008 it will cost alot more - will the money factor be higher on a 2008
he said the decision has to be made today

The dealerships are looking to unload these 07's. Here is a breakdown of one they are offering me today only they have a few similar on the lot as well all with different options but this is the most loaded 07 they have left i was really looking for 20' tires but .....
Garnet Red/Black int
-3rd row seats
-Audi music interface(ipod)
-Multifunction steering wheel
-19'' 7-arm wheels(standard on 4.2 premium
-Technology pkg(rearview camera, advanced key push button start, Audi side assist, Voice Recognition)
-Infotainment pkg(Navigation, Blue tooth prep, Sirius Sat radio)
Here is what they are offering.
3500 total out of pocket which includes taxes
$696 per month
good deal can I do better? Are there any design differences in the 08 model I would hate to lease a 60,000 truck if the 08's are not the same ..

Seriously, I would advise you to go to other dealerships closeby to get another quote. The last thing you want them to do is to rip you off.
I am not saying that you are being ripped off, but that's not what others are paying for their 2007 Q7's.
If I were you, I wouldn't get the 2007 ones if I can't more discounts on them. Instead, I will look into the 2008 ones. Though the price on 2008s are higher, most of the features are standard. You are paying/getting the same price and features at the end. Hope this helps.

The quote is actually close to mine (got my Q7 1 week ago) except mine doesn't have the Roof and Tow package.
I think the quote is a good deal. Look at it this way, the special lease Audi have now is $550/month for 36/10 with $4000 down and plus TTL. And that was for a MSRP $50K Q7s.
Perhaps in order to get to that monthly payment, you might have to come up with another $3000 for the TTL.
That's probably close to $7K out of pocket.
Comparing to your quote, which is $8000 price difference in MSRPs. And the out of pocket $ difference is $4000. So you are looking at an appr. $12000 price difference.
Your out of pocket is only $3500. And even if the monthly payment is $150 more than the special lease ($550/month), with $1000 equals appr. to $30 more a month, you actually got a VERY handsome deal!!
Sorry for the lengthy explanation, but I hope you got my point through this. I'd said "What are you waiting for!!!" LOL. Good luck!

thanks I will do that! I'm curious for a car in the 55,000 range what is a good lease price on these Q's so at least I can seem somewhat educated when I go in. From looking at other cars it seems everything in the mid 55 range leases in the mid to high 7's.... or thats what they are telling me. I would love to put nothing down and get a lease in the mid 600 range..

Yes, I was in the same shoe like you, except we traded in 2 cars and was really upside down close to $9K. Even with that, my out of pocket was only $3500 (1st month included and no tax since my trade-in(s) worthed more than the Q7), our montly payment is only $998/month with 36/15. And yes, Audi care included as well.
And yes, please get the full packages Q7, you will not regret it a bit even if u are paying more!! I absolutely enjoy and love driving my Q7.

Hehe, but I did enough research through here and straightened all the numbers first before I entered the dealership to deal with them. Also, make sure you get the car price negotiation done first before telling them you want to lease/finance a car and then talk about trade-in at the last (if u have any).
Have an idea how much you should be paying first before heading to the dealership. If I were you, no harm haggle a little on lowering the out of pocket or lowering monthly payments. Good luck!

It looks like my truck might arrive early (before October). I want to be prepared, so I would appreciate it if you help me. Here are the specs on my car,
2008 Audi Q7 3.6 Premium, Calla White, Cardamon Interior, Technology Package, Convenience Package, Panorama Sunroof, 20” Alloy Wheels. MSRP $58,825. Invoice $54,229.
I am planning to lease for 36 months (or 33 or 39 if more advantageous) with typical 15,000 miles per year (or 12,000 if more advantageous)
Can you please provide me with:
Cost of Audi Care (and if it is worth it in your opinion)
What I should expect to pay (base cap cost) for this car in Florida around this time of the year. I’m pretty good negotiating; I just want an educated opinion!
Ability to not pay an acquisition fee and/or security deposit (keeping in mind I am not a previous Audi customer)
Thanks in advance,
#447 of 1082 Sept 4 Lease deal
Sep 03, 2007 (4:30 pm)
I'm thinking about leasing a 2007 Q7 and I'm wondering how important it is to do it by Sept 4 when the "special" lease goes away? Any idea what will go away on Sept 5, will the deal I can negotiate really be worse? Will the MF get worse? Residuals? Thanks for the input.
