I can't comment on the 2013's, but the 2014 residuals are correct. If you bought audi care, they would be 1% higher. The residual on the gas and diesel are the same...as is the performance...consider the TDI.
BTW, you can lease a 2014 MB e550 for less than an audi A6 or A7.....something to consider and it's a significantly faster car. Although I prefer the audi A7 diesel, I will pay $150 a month less for the MB e550. Hard to pass that up. I might just have to suffer with the MB

No one has offered me Audi care - does it end up being a wash since you have an added cost against the 1% higher residual?
I'm looking at the A7 due to it being 4-door and a hatchback. Coming from an SUV this is an optimal switch. For me it is this or a used Panamera.

Based on the deal they first offered me it calculates out to be 0.00190. This is on the PPlus, not sure if it is different on the Prestige. Here was the deal offered.
- 2975 Discount
36 mos, 10K year, 7.75% sales tax
He told me he can be more aggressive if necessary - so I assume they could discount more.

I was about to buy a panamera until I had my wife sit in it....no way she can drive it (5'0"). A7 TDI would be my next choice, but MB is discounting the e350/550 so much it's hard to resist. I can lease a pretty fully equipped e550 (8 cylinder) for under $800 a month 10K/yr 36 mo lease. If I could get an A7 anywhere close, I'd go that route.
Yes the 1% pretty much covers audi care, so why not get it...let audi service the car.

hmmm....3 months? I assume you mean 30 or 36 mos. Compare that to a MB e550 which is a much faster car for $795/mo 36 mo 10K/yr 0 down with multiple security deposits. It's hard to spend $130 a month more for the audi, at least for me.

ghstudio, I have both an A7 and a e550 and I understand why he wants an A7, the E550 is the most boring car I ever had, so for me $130 a month more for an A7 are well justified...
