$1,500 over invoice is not a good deal. For an in-stock S4, I'd expect $500 over invoice worst case scenario. The benefit of your Multiple Security Deposits are being negated by an inflated negotiated sales price.
FYI: Estoril Blue is extremely difficult to care for and swirl marks are caused very easily. Consider the application of a paint protect ant / sealant like Zymol immediately and avoid all car washes, hand wash or otherwise.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is something like zymol easy to DIY or would I want to take it in somewhere?

Hi all, looking at leasing a 2014 S4 Premium Plus and was hoping for some feedback on the numbers the dealer is giving me:
Invoice: $55,377.25 (I verified this figure against the known invoice prices and it matches, but also includes not only the $895 destination fee which I know is unavoidable, but a $195 prep/inspection fee and a $290 "FL Gulf Coast DAG" fee - not sure what those are or if they are standard)
Dealer profit: $500
Shipping (they had to get the car from another dealer across the state): $450
"PDI and detail" fee: $450
Sale price: $56,777
Acquisition fee $695
Conquest bonus cash $1,000
So with the acquisition fee and Audicare rolled in, I get:
Total adjusted cap cost: $57,352.25 (my calculation) $57,742.59 (dealer calculation?)
42mo lease / 12k mi / 54% residual (with Audicare) / .00108 MF
Base payment: $713.68
Tax 7%: $49.96
Total monthly payment: $763.64
Due at signing:
First month’s payment of $763.64
State license fees $250
Rental surcharge $60
Tire & Battery fees $6.50
Dealer Service Charge $697.50
Cash Cap Red. Tax $76.47
Tax on Florida fees $53.48
Cash to cap reduction $92.41
Total due at signing: $2,000.00
What do you guys think of these numbers? The negotiated sale price of invoice plus $500 seems reasonable to me from what I’ve seen, although I don’t know what those extra things on the invoice price are. The shipping I don’t know if I can avoid since they went out of their way to get this particular car for me. The two things that really jump out at me are the $450 “PDI and detail” fee and the $697.50 “Dealer Service Charge”. Also, I can’t figure out how the dealer is getting their cap cost with the numbers above.
Here are three screen captures from my sales guy’s computer that he sent me:
Any and all feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

"The two things that really jump out at me are the $450 “PDI and detail” fee and the $697.50 “Dealer Service Charge”" DO NOT pay these fees.
Also, I have no idea what a "Rental Surcharge" is. And no idea what the "FL Gulf Coast DAG" fee is.
The $195 prep/inspection fee is a cost that is passed along to the dealer.
Others will have to comment whether it is standard for a dealer to charge for transportation costs from another dealership, in your case, $450.

Sales price is very good (probably too good at 8.5% off MSRP). Which begs the questions: What is the Money Factor, what fees are being added, and what (in addition to the down payment of $5K) is due at signing?
IMO, putting any significant money down on a lease is a bad decision. If anything, use the money for Multiples Security Deposits to "buy down" the Money Factor (if allowed in your state).
I am not one for buying cars, especially if you can stay within the allowed mileage of a lease. With the conservative residuals Audi uses, you will have a favorable buyout at the end of term, which leaves you with equity for a trade, or the ability to buy the car and sell it yourself or simply enjoy buying a car worth many thousands more than you could on the open market and knowing exactly where its been and how it has been driven.
Also, ESTORIL BLUE CRYSTAL EFFECT is very susceptible to swirl marks. So plan on avoiding all car washes (hand or otherwise) and detailing it yourself using high-end products to keep the paint looking good.
