Mine just came in today...wish I knew how to attach the picture. I am picking up on Wednesday. I didn't talk price with the dealer (like it would matter for this car!!) He is supposed to call back this afternoon. I am just waiting to see what they will give me in trade for my 2004 S4...last I heard $19500...they better bring it up a little...it's in great shape with only 41,000 miles on it.

Got mine last night. They do have the lease rates out here in Milwaukee. Opted out of the lease and bought instead...heck, I might never get rid of it! The car was well worth the seven month wait...holy cow...what a machine. Driving away from the dealer we had people turning, pointing and staring (they were in an A4). Good luck with yours!

I too am waiting for the 2009 lease program to be released by Audi...its frustrating that an auto manufacturer has cars available but no lease program listed.

The good times of great leases are gone for a while (yrs) . . . you often might as well just take out a long lone from a credit union to mimic the lease. (So you balance after 3 yrs is about what the car is worth). 72 months or some even have 84 month loans which match up well with cars like Audi that hold thier value reasonable well . . .

I ordered mine in January and got it on July 30th. It is fantastic!!!! From what I have been told, it is all based on the number of allocations your region and dealer gets, so your dealer should know. I found out at the end of June that it was in production and they had a delivery date of August 11th so I got lucky.

The A5 and S5 are still selling quite well. There might be a few A5's in stock dealers, but S5's are still tough to find and you have to order them a majority of the time.
There are no deals on the cars, either special financing or lease rates. People buy because they want them.

In that case, the S5 must be the only model that IS selling in the US because GM, Ford, Chrysler, Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Acura, Lexus, Infinity, BMW, Mercedes, Aston martin, Bentley, etc etc are all DOWN !
There are at least 20 S5's for sale on the net. Perhaps they're not selling as well as you think. And ''offers'' are now being accepted on the A5 (as was the case when i contacted a dealer last week).

I have waited for 5 months for delivery and was told by the dealer that they would buy the S5 back used at a higher price than I paid.
