#400 of 562 Re: 2013 Audi S4 Premium Plus - 36mo lease offer [m4m]

I got over 11% off a month ago, and now the 2014s are coming fast, Got to figure the dealers are sitting on alot of metal. I'd would tell them what you are willing to pay, an that you will not lease a car at a marked up buy rate. They are marking the MF up an evuivalent of 1.68%. That's insanity. There are MANY dealers that will lease at buy rate. and if they mark it up, then do as I did, and walk away until they knock more off the sell price. And unless things changed alot in three weeks, the AFS residual is 56% (stronic) and 57% with audi care. 49%? really...cant be
sometime I think I should go into business negotiating this stuff for people.

Sale price: ~$ 49.000 (based on % off you got)

Why is sales tax apparently being calculated off the sales price? Sales tax should be on the lease payments only.
Residual is WAY off. Dealer cannot/should not be able to adjust residuals EXCEPT if adding AudiCare (+1%).
What is the cost to ship the car...have that fee broken out. If you choose to ship rather than pick up, confirm "ship" means via truck, not someone driving it to your location.
As stated above, money factor is being padded. Insist on the buy rate, which I believe is still .00068 for 36 month leases on 2013 S4s.
At the end of the model year, I'd shoot for $1K under invoice, so offer $2K under. 6MTs are not easy to find, and if the dealer knows that is what you want, you may have sealed your fate. You can also start focusing on what the car does not have, like B&O sound, whether you really want it or not.

Thank you isle1! Appreciate your input - good catch, it does not have a B&O, at this time Im more concentrating on how much I could off MSRP on ’13 models, MF and rate.
As far sales tax - We will no longer pay sales tax on the monthly payment as well as the ad valorem tax which discontinued in GA since March.
We are now paying 6.5% for the so called "Title Tax". So I have option to roll it into the monthly payment or chose to pay it upfront and be done with it.
So I will shoot for sale price of 49K, MF .0068 and include AudiCare in it...

I agree with the above. I negotiate by email only. No emotions. No face to face. I only make phone contact after the deal is agreed upon, and only show up in dealer to sign the lease. I would push very hard too. no none is going to offer you a deal, you have to push for and make your own deal. Happy buying

I'm considering 2013 s4 with the following:
- 10k miles / year
- 3 year lease
- audi care
What's the latest MF and residual % for this car?
I'm also considering a5 and s5. Do they same the same rate?
So far dealers have been hesitant to provide the lease rates despite my specific request to provide detailed numbers. Not to mention that in Illinois we have to pay sales tax on the entire sale (not just depreciation) . So now I still have problems getting my spreadsheet to match what the dealers provide.
Thanks so much for your help. You guys are taking some of my anxiety of leasing the first time out.

Greetings klc3757. Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 S4 Sedan Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year are .00068 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier. The addition of Audi Care boosts the residual value by 1%.
The numbers for a lease of an A5 or S5 would be different. They vary by trim level as well.

Didn't know there's a trim level difference but premium plus rate that you mentioned is the most common trim I've seen.

thank you, car_man!
Still question about residual value-> 56% Is this number set by manufacture, if so than audi dealer not should be change/modify that number, correct? I just got an offer where it says 53% and they claimed thats it, nothing they can do?!
