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.

I wanted the 24 mo lease because I wanted to get an S8 sooner (it wasn't available back then). When the dealer told me that 24 mo lease was cheaper than 34 mo, it only made it so much better
Call Keys, tell them you want the same deal (if that's what you want). PM me for the salesman's phone number if needed (not sure if that's against forum's rules).

Great deal! I want to get the same. Could you provide the dealership name (apparantly this is all that is allowed as per forum rules) - Thanks!

It's Keyes on Van Nuys blvd, in Van Nuys. Talk to the Internet sales manager...
On an entirely different note, remember that old tv series about a horse that could talk? What a great name for a horse...

#49 of 85 2008 Audi A8L
Jun 23, 2007 (8:05 pm)
I am in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, and getting ready to order a 2008 A8L. I am trying to decide between the light silver metallic and the platinum beige pearl; has anyone seen the platinum beige on an 07? I like the northern blue pearl as well, but it looks too dark on the website. I may end up with the silver (with platinum interior), as with the platinum beige I'd probably get one of the two beige leather interiors, and you can't get the leather/wood steering wheel with those (not with honey birch trim).
I expect to end up with a near-fully loaded A8L (minus only the interactive cruise control and sports package) with a MSRP around $91K. How much off MSRP / above invoice could I expect on that?
Also, does anyone have experience with the Audi extended warranty? With other brands I have gotten the 7 yr / 100K miles / $0 deductible. What could I negotiate for something similar from Audi? Is it a good idea to get the wheel insurance? Wonder why your auto policy wouldn't cover that.
Thanks much for any information. This got a little wordy.
