Hello Car_man. I'm looking to get an S4 premium plus, 36 mo, 12k mi/yr, lease in April. Will rates fluctuate much by then? Also, what is considered top-tier credit? I'd like to see if there are things I can do to my credit to improve it by then. Thanks

The original Audi S4, built from 1991 until 1994, was a performance-oriented version of Audi's 100 saloon/sedan.

We have the Alcantara in our S4. Test drove the nappa leather model too.
It's really up to you. We find the Alcantara to be extremely durable. Of course, you never know until 5-6 years down the road. But, it sure does look and feel more durable.
Plus, the alcantara won't "crinkle" like the nappa leather will over time.

What were you quoted for sales price, money factor and residual value? That's the only way to really know if the numbers are good. Any cap cost reductions/incentives?
Depending on your sales tax rate, the monthly payment seems pretty good. Sounds like you may have qualified for a $1,000 conquest cash incentive.

53,400. MF .001365 and residual at 50 percent with the Audi Care factored in

Current "buy rate" money factor for a 42 month term is .00088. Dealer is padding the money factor for profit or Audi Financial has raise it for reasons due to your credit.
The residual value is correct with AudiCare factored in.
Sales price seems okay based on MSRP of ~ 57K...but you should check the actual invoice here on Edmunds.com and aim for $500 over invoice (or less...start at or below invoice). That is not always possible depending on locale, but if this car is on the lot, you may have some leverage.
The payment you posted still seems low with that sales price and quoted MF, especially since sales tax in rolled into the payment. Are you sure that number is not based on money down? You need to get the MF lowered, then make sure dealer is not adding fees that you are expected to pay up front.

Payment seems high with such a large drive off amount. What is being paid at signing besides first month payment?
What is the quoted money factor?
What fees are being charged in addition to the sales price?
Did you check invoice in the new car section of Edmunds.com? Shoot for a sales price about $500 above invoice for an in-stock car. So offer $1K under invoice and try to get AudiCare thrown in or discounted. Bumps residual value by 1%
