*First post, so please excuse any mis-steps or missing info
Left the dealer today after about 2 hours of negotiating for a 2018 Q5 P+ with this:
Sale Price: 44000
Mo Payment: $575
I’ve been searching the forum and the advice on that a “good” lease price for a Q5 P+ are ALL over the place - I’ve seen people recommending $450 all the way up to $685. However, it’s rare to find any advice for this model/trim for a car that will be registered in Chicago proper, since we have some crazy taxes.
Further confusing me and making it harder to compare apples to apples is the fact that the deal quoted to me above wasn’t based on a true lease, but an Audi Premier Purchase - which is treated closer to a purchase for the used value of the car with a balloon payment at the end (used to get around the extra Chicago lease use tax.)
Anybody familiar with Audi and Chicago’s bulls***t taxes able to help give me a little guidance about what an actual great deal price is that I should be shooting for on a lease (premier purchase, whatever) on this car? I’d love to stick around $2-3k out the door and $550/mo if at all possible. It’s into 2019 now and inventory searches show there’s a ton of 2018 Q5 P+ still on the lots, so I feel like I should be able to go pretty hard at them if I have all the right info and tactics.
Thanks in advance!
