#503 of 868 Worst Buying Experience
Jun 22, 2011 (5:29 pm)
I am from ohio. About a week ago, I went on shopping for an Audi Q5 premium+ at a local dealership. The sales woman came up with a figure for me with 6% less than MSRP (Audi Supplier Program) plus my S2000 trade in, but there were no car or car swap with other dealership. Therefore, the sales woman tried to keep my business and promoted me that 2011 price for 2012 model. On couple days later, I bought in and gotten ready to drop off my trade in, she mentions that Audi has raised the 2012 Q5 premium+ by $500, but that was not what she promotes me and attract me to the deal. They are not able to proof whether it is really coming from Audi factory. I could not find any pricing details online whether it is true or not. I passed the deal and walked out the dealership. Since, they keep calling me and asking me to reconsider without giving any incentive, no AudiCare program, not a cent drop. It seems to me that they know I want the car and purposely raise the price on me on demand. What I learnt from this lessen is never trust what the sales man promotes verbally, get them write down the deal with black ink and white paper.

After contacting several NJ dealers i finally got offer of $42300 OTD.
Could you please tell me if this a good deal for Audi Q5 premium plus no nav.
Do i need to include Audi care before making the order? Does Audi care save money on maintenance?

#507 of 868 2012 Q5 Invoice Pricing?
Jul 01, 2011 (7:24 pm)
I was in a dealership last week discussing a 2012 Q5 2.0T with Premium Plus, Navigation and Advanced Key options. The dealer found one in a color I liked, printed out a copy of the itemized invoice (with the base price and all the options I wanted on it) and gave it to me. When I got home, I compared the invoice prices on the dealer printout to the invoice prices available on Edmunds. The invoice prices for the options were exactly the same between the dealer printout and Edmunds. The base prices, however, were different! Edmunds lists the base invoice price for the 2012 Q5 as $33,108 but the base invoice price the dealer gave me was $33,508 ... $400 more (surprise!) Does anyone know which is the correct base invoice price? Has anyone else seen an dealer invoice for the 2012 Q5? What did it say was the base invoice price?

This is exactly the car I'm going to order. How much do you pay over invoice? Today, I went to a dealership, they showed the invoice was still $33108. Another question: when would you get the car?

The dealership I went to will sell me the car for $150 over invoice. They also have a $200 administrative fee so, essentially, they've agreed to sell it to me for $350 over invoice - and I have it in writing from the sales manager. I thought it was a pretty good deal but now I'm going to have to confront them about the base invoice price discrepancy. It sounds like the correct base invoice price is $33,108 (per Edmunds and the dealership you went to) not the $33,508 my dealer claims. I suspect my dealer either a) made an honest mistake or b) is trying to build an additional $400 into their profit by trying to slip an inflated invoice by me (hmmm ...) Has anyone else seen an actual dealer invoice for the 2012 Q5 2.0T? What did it say was the base invoice price?

It's possible they have a regional advertising charge on their invoice...

Excellent point. But the invoice the dealer gave me was quite itemized ... all charges were shown individually (base, destination and all of the options on my vehicle were broken out separately.) I would think that a regional advertising charge would be itemized as well. Maybe not, though. I will certainly ask!
