#35 of 85 A8 Lease Question ...
Feb 27, 2007 (8:56 pm)
I started my quest for a new car this week and had no intentions of buying an A8. Well needless to say, one look and I was hooked. The offer I have on the table is the following:
A8 Short w/ premium, 19”, massage, Sirius
MSRP - $77970
Invoice - $72574 (according to KBB)
Offer - $73608
Residual – 44% (45% if I have them throw in the $599 maintenance program)
Money Factor – 0.00145
Payment with 7.75% tax - $1322.79
I’m in So Cal and wanted to know if the Residual and MF sound right for my region thru Audi Financial. A couple of posts back you stated that they were 46% and 0.0013. I just want to be sure that they are not marking these up. Also, do you think that there is room for further negotiation?

Look at my numbers (I'm also in SoCal), I don't think $1322/m is fair. How many months and miles/year?
A8L Premium + Sports package.
Got it down to $79,200
First/last down, $1260/month including CA tax (8.25%).

That's because the L leases out a little better than the SWB

"but there is no S line A8" - what do you mean, rjlaero?

The A8 doesn't have the S line treatments with the more agressive front end, steering wheel stitching, different wood or metal trim, and S line badges like the A3, A4, A6, & Q7.
The A8 has a sport pacakge, but it's only upgraded wheels & sport suspension.

Got it. Misunderstood the original post.
On a different note...
After about a year I'm ready for something different. Just not enough power. Maybe an S8 or a 911. Any other A8 owner wants to share their opinion?

I think the A8 is a car good enough for me in all aspects; somehow, by driving it, you feel you want more of the A8, and that is why I am waiting for the S8’ coming by the end of March or early April. Then, again, what do I need the big hp for? The cups in South Jersey give out the speeding tickets like the sex hormone desire in their inner bodies. I am just a car nut!

I left out that it is a 36mo lease 15K/year. What was your money factor and residual? At what So Cal dealer did you get your deal and when?

Couldn't tell you what the money factor and residual were right now.
I went with 24 months because Audi Financial had a better deal on 24 vs. 36 months. Not sure if it was some kind of a special they had going at the time or if the same is true right now.
An extra 3k/year will probably add $20/month from what I remember the dealer was offering.
Dealer: Keyes Audi on Van Nuys blvd in Van Nuys (went through their internet sales mgr).

Thanks ... I know I still have more haggling to do. I think that I can squeeze more out of my dealer. When did you buy yours? Maybe there was a special Audi Financial deal going on at the time.
