Hi all. I’ve been helping a buddy get an Audi A4 Tech 2.0T Premium Plus in NY, at 36/12. First thing: there is extremely low inventory. Many dealer websites haven’t even updated, so they’re all sold out despite the sites saying there’s inventory.
One dealer is offering a MSRP $50,000 A4 for $559/month with $559 down. It is by far the best offer I received, and the highest MSRP I made an offer on (other dealers were near $600 bc they said there’s just no inventory anywhere, and they’re correct). I have little leverage here.
They’re not comfortable sending me offer breakdown, but he did mention the correct MF. However, he said the RV is at 51% but Edmunds Forums, as well as all the other dealers, had the RV at 52%. He said the manager insists it’s 51, but I really doubt it.
Any ideas as to how I can show that it’s 52%? This will really help the monthly, especially bc MSDs aren’t allowed in NY. I don’t think simply sending a link to the Edmunds forums will help. Is there a more direct source?
Edit: Ok I think I figured it out. Audi wanted to push out lower trims like the Premium, so they added “Tech” which bumped the RV up 1 point.
Higher trims, like the Premium Plus we got, already had the tech features, so they didn’t need to be added in, thereby keeping the RV in place at 51. Even the finance guy admitted it was weird that a lower trim has a higher RV.

I needed to play around with the sale number to make it work
