Get the money factor, residual, any incentives you are eligible for and then try to put together the numbers in LH calculator. Don’t put any money down. Pay only doc fee, tax, title and reg fee and 1st month payment upfront.

How does this compare with other deals especially when Audi is trying to get rid off 2019 inventory before 2020 starts coming in. Also is RV of 49% too low, my dealer says it is because it is 2019 model, can that be negotiated further?
@ 26-2 not worth the extra per month to go P+ (for me). - agreed not worth it for me either @CapsCup2018 "I couldn’t agree more. I just don’t get it. I guess people want the brand so bad that they don’t care that it doesn’t have the most basic modern features. " - not the reason - guess its a matter of choice though. @VirginiaBeacher - sure will look into Audicare
Ok then if it’s not about the brand why wouldn’t you get a Mazda Cx-5 or a Honda CRV that has way more features for $100 less per month? What exactly is the draw? The only reason to get a stripped down Audi over a cheaper far better equipped non luxury brand is to drive an Audi. I am not criticizing, I get it but lets call spade a spade.
THere are differences between a Q5 and a CRV besides just features on the sticker. Ride quality, suspension design, quietness, robustness of structure are all benefits of “stripped” Q5 over a CRV with more “features”
My wife drives a Q7 2.0 premium with a couple of packages that we leased for 550+tax. She never uses cruise control, doesnt care about digital cockpit, doesnt care about big rims, doesnt mash the throttle. She wanted quiet and smooth. with great freeway stability (autobahn feel). and heated seats. That was the remit. She doesnt know brands, her first thought was a Hyundai.
Should I have bought a loaded pilot or chevy traverse instead? The Q7 infrastructure and platform underlies cars from 50K to 150, the pilot platform was engineered for cars from 30K-50K.
Different attributes have different values to different people.
