#81 of 719 2009 Prestige package Ibis white
Aug 11, 2009 (7:56 am)
I bought a 2009 Prestige package the last week of July. The dealer showed me a 2009 Prestige model, which was a demo (450 miles) and must have been on the lot for a couple of months. MSRP 49.025, Invoice (Edmunds) $45,651- TMV $46,641. I called over 10 Audi dealers and they all said they had little or no 2009's and only a few 2010's in Premium Plus, and almost no Prestige models available. Most quoted $800-$1200 off sticker for 2010 models. My dealer sold me the 2009 Prestige demo for $43,800, which seemed like a great deal for the car in the current "Q5" shortage climate. Certainly as the cars are more plentiful, more deals will be available. In any case- totally thrilled with the Audi Q5! PS : A 45 minute lesson on MMI from your salesperson is essential, as this is quite an intricate system.

As far as how it effects the price of a Premium, it is the same 6% off the MSRP, you could go on Audi's website and "build your own" to get the MSRP for what you want and take 6% off that price.
I paid 46K ish before taxes etc, sorry don't have the exact numbers in front of me. I cant say what your taxes and licenses fees will be. My VLF was over $600 and taxes were another $4,500. Now that is in expensive tax crazy CA.
#83 of 719 Audi Sales Rep and Audi Supplier program
Aug 13, 2009 (6:59 am)
Not sure why but audi sales people do not promote the supplier program. I found out about it from a Nissan dealer since they offer similar program and then found out audi offers it . I have heard that if the local ausid dealer does not have the car in stock they will play games and give your car to someone that does not use Audi supplier program..
Any one know if this is true or just rumors ?? Can I place a custome order thru supplier program ...

Just sealed a deal on a Q5 '09 White with beige interior premium plus , navigation , 19" wheel (much nicer) , all weather mats (front+back) , rubberized cargo liner and BARRACUDA bike holder for 42.500 . It was the last one in the dealer (floor model). I feel very good about the deal. Very nice salesman (contacted him by phone before i went there. ) Palisades Audi in Nyack , NY (by Tapanzee Bridge)
I feel very lucky to find just the right color combo and options I wanted. ( just missed the Bang & Olufsen sound system )
I've been searching for month to get a good deal and i feel I got a GREAT deal.
Good luck to everyone looking for a Q5 . Just be patient and visit a lot of dealers.

Congrats on your new Q5. I'm currently going thru the same dealer as well (Palisades). Did you have a smooth negotiation? Did you ask for all those accessories or did they throw it in. I tried to get them to throw in the mats but they did not budge. Did you inquire about Audi Care? Any other tips/comments regarding this dealer?

so far it was smooth . Understand it was the last Q5 2009 in the lot!!, so I had some room to negotiate with them. Trust me they not giving nothing for free. But does'nt hurt to try. Don't show yourself too desperate and don't rush it. Make sure you get what you want.
Just curious what are you looking for ?, how much sticker price ? how much are they offering you?..
No audi care. just keep looking around , theres a lot of audi dealers (NY;NJ)
I find that classic audi in white plains is giving $1.500 under sticker price on Q5 2010.
good luck dwdm
#88 of 719 2010s w/ Walnut inlays
Aug 23, 2009 (3:11 pm)
Yea, I like the 2010 Cardemom Beige cause you can get the much nicer looking walnut inlays (darker). I am pretty sure that the 2009 Cardemom Beige only comes in the natural Ash inlays. One of the reasons we waited for the 2010s.

just tinted mine. very nice to match and a little cooler. With 2k on the car I finally gave it a full throttle and 100 mph was fast, smooth, safe, quiet and witout drama.
I really like our Q5.
