#2 of 111 no reason to pay over msrp!!!

from discussions on other boards with buyers of the car, it sounds like they are tight but around, and are trading pretty much at msrp, but some guys are getting small discounts (biggest i heard about was 1500)...really nice car!

Supply is very short for S5's as many dealers are sold out and waiting for cars to arrive. Most people are paying MSRP. Seen a few dealers asking as much as 10k over sticker.

FYI - I went to a South Florida Audi dealer and their lease price on an S5 is as follows:
MSRP - no discounts
money factor was .00417
I was willing to go MSRP but I found the money factor absured. I have excellent credit 800+ and already qualified with Audi Finance as I currently have an A6.
They stated that Audi finance was not dealing on the S5 because of demand and that while the money factor was high on the S5 they were very low on the Q7 and A4 in other words they make up the difference on the S5.
Any other experiences out there???

You're almost better off buying the S5 unless you need to lease for business or tax reasons. Audi knows it has an incredibly hot car, so don't look for any sweet money rate factors.
But that translates in an interested rate of 11.3%. Your Audi dealer can sandbag multilple points on the back end to try to make more money for the finance people in the business office. No doubt there trying to do it there to make some extra money.
Car rates are around 7% at most banks right now if it's not subsidized through the manufacturer.
Even with 4 or 5 grand down, on a loaded S5 in the 58k range, your not going to get much change out of $1,000 on a lease payment.

THE CAR IS STICKER, FIRM. DEALERS ARE SELLING THIS CAR BEFORE IT GETS TO THE DEALERSHIP, EVEN BEFORE ITS GONE INTO PRODUCTION.

That is exactly true as the dealer gave me the ability to select exactly the car I want color, options etc... the car would be built for me. Place the order and the car would be received in 90 days.

90 days might be a bit optimistic. Some of the S5's are getting back-ordered and it could take 4-5 months to get one. Even if you punch a sold car in the system, if you don't have an allocation to build one at your dealership, you have to wait until your dealer gets one.
Audi can't make enough of the 4.2 engine and the production plants are getting max-out with V8 orders.
#9 of 111 Audi finance rate on S5 of 5.90%
Dec 13, 2007 (6:37 pm)
I just negotiated (?) an S5 for MSRP with Audi Care thrown in ($600 value). I financed through my credit union at 5.99%. When the dealer got the request to send the signed sales order to the bank, they offered to finance and asked what rate I got. I said 5.99, they said they thought they could beat it. I sent the app over, and they approved me at 5.90. But then my credit union lowered my rate .25 to 5.74 if I made direct withdrawal payments, which I will.
So you can get a competitive rate with Audi on this car.
