Is this good deal? Should I take it?

They also said that if I added in Audi Care the monthly would go to $671+taxes

I think buyers were getting up to 20% off MSRP in NorCal till last week.

There should more room on the price. Last month (End of Year) I got 20% off msrp on a 2.0 in NorCal as well. It’s beginning of year so it might be dealers aren’t eager enough to move the units.

Which dealership have you been in touch with?

Got this through a broker. It seems like there are fewer 3.0’s left. Not sure if this would affect the percent off.

Not to discredit the broker, as that is a solid deal they are offering without any hassle. Have you checked CarGurus to see how many 3.0 are available in NorCal?

Just checked 67 3.0 across all trims within 50 miles. There are 137 2.0.

If you’re set on the 3.0, take the deal. But if you haven’t driven the 2.0 I’d suggest you do that as well, I drove both and the difference in power was minimal…to me at least.

Is adding AudiCare supposed to increase my residual percentage? They just said adding AudiCare would cost additional $17 per month. Is AudiCare even worth getting for a lease?

I added It since I Usually do service every 5k instead of the recommend 10k. It made sense to me since a synthetic oil change costs between $120-$140. But if you plan on doing just every 10k service, it may not be worth it.

Also if you do the math, the cost of Audi care ends up ~$600 (36mo x $17) over 3yrs. And the RV goes up 1%.

Isn’t Audi Care is for service at 20k, 30k and 40k and 10k service is Complementary.
If 3.0 supply is getting low then margins will be low also. Try 2.0 P+ not much different in power I have driven both too.

Why would service a leased vehicle more often than recommended(or required)? Just curious…:popcorn:

Lease or not, I like to take care of the car I’m driving since it’s used as our family car. Also, I like to drop off the cars for service on a Friday and get a loaner for the weekend (my local Audi service is not open on weekends) to take a trip somewhere and not rack up extra miles on my car.


AudiCare adds 1% to the residual. It’s 999, but after the residual bump it comes out to less than 500 dollars. Your 10k service is free and the 20k service is around 500 or more if you have the DSG transmission. The 30k service is just an oil change. 40k is another costly service. It’s a must if you’re doing a 36/15. I’d still recommend it
at 36/12, but you should do the math to see if it makes sense.


Adding to the Audicare discussion - I would strongly recommend it for a couple of reasons:

  • I got it on my 2018 A4. I had to get my first complimentary oil change done before it hit 10k miles. I am at 13.8k miles and I have had 3 oil changes so far.
  • As some have said, the bump in residual “subsidizes” part of the cost.
  • If you decide to purchase the car at the end of the lease, you are covered for up to 40k miles (what the finance guy mentioned to me).

My $0.02.

On 10k or under per year leases it is not worth it. More than that, get Audi care. On a 10k lease you do a $100 oil change at 20k and are done.
