Hi Kevin. The 2013 A5 Coupe that you described probably has a spread of around $3,000 or so between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. I highly doubt that you will be able to negotiate a $4,400 discount on a car that only has a $3,000 spread between invoice and MSRP. If I was in the market for this car, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 over invoice and see what happens. You can look up this car's exact invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.
Audi is providing owner loyalty cash on the A5, but I don't believe that it has any cash on this car for current owners of competitive models.

I think you can do better - the cash at signing seems high. I leased my A5 (premium plus with sport package) last November and it's quite similar to yours (although I have audi care included in mine). Your MSRP is a bit higher (about $800) than mine - maybe you have some other options. I'm also in CA. I paid less up front and also have a lower monthly payment and audi care. Check out the details of my lease - it's post #544.

#620 of 765 AudiCare - Increase Residual if don't roll cost into monthly payment
Aug 29, 2012 (1:29 pm)
I am contemplating whether I should get AudiCare for the 2013 A5 Premium Plus Quattro I am about to lease. Could someone help me with a couple of questions I have regarding AudiCare:
1) Does AudiCare increase the residual value of your car by 1%? I've been seeing this in some older posts and want to see if this is still the case.
2) If I pay for AudiCare and pay for the cost ($800) instead of rolling it into the monthly payment, will I still get a 1% increase in residual value thus lowering my monthly payment?
Clearly if I am able to pay for the AudiCare as part of my upfront cost and still get the 1% increase residual, it comes out to the best deal because I won't have to pay interest on the AudiCare and get the decrease in monthly payments due to lower depreciation costs.

Hey folks- I am. Looking into an a5 cabriolet for my wife. We like to do 24 month 1 pay leases w/ 12k miles. We are looking into a premium plus, quattro model with navi.
Anyone have any ideas on a 1 pay in the ny, tri state area. I know the one pay should be less, but, generally what's he money factor and residual on this ride?

Thanks for the additional information latin0devildog. OK, according to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2013 Audi A5 Coupe Premium Plus with Nav that has an MSRP of $45,295 and a selling price of 42,939 ($750 over invoice) through Audi Financial Services right now for 36-months with 10,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $562, assuming that you qualify for its top credit tier.

#624 of 765 2013 A5 premium, paid price
Sep 04, 2012 (4:26 pm)
Bought 2013 A5 2.0TFSI premium, convenience pkg, heated seats, lighting package, metallic paint (monsoon). Down payment $4000, monthly $490 with tax included. 12K/mo. Just wish it had more power so I chipped it. If you think you'll ever want more power, save a year and get an S5, if you need a car until then just buy a used accord for 10K and sell it when u buy the S5.
