So, I was leasing a 2015 A8L and now 2019 A8 L is here. Earlier this summer the dealership called me in to reserve one and we did. The car has arrived but I have no obligation to lease or buy it. Which is a good thing. The car is $98k minus $4k Audi Rebate net is $94k. The dealership is asking for $15k down payment so that I can have a manageable $1.2k payment each month. I think this is a rip off deal. Thoughts? Can someone here work with me determining if what I am doing is is right or I am being taken for a ride!
From what i can tell, it all actually looks legit, you are not getting any discount and the MF is high from what i can put together from your screenshot. Look at the residual. You are at 49.5% residual, that is terrible, but to be expected on these big flagship sedans. I don’t know much about Audis but can tell you from looking at this, might as well go get an S class instead.
@amazing create a profile and request the following:
“Looking for MF and Residuals on a 2019 Audi A8L 3.0T 36 months / 36,000 miles, along with any incentives in zip code XXXXX”
Also, please confirm the MSRP. Residuals are typically a whole percentage amount - the residual ($48,797.50) / MSRP (you’re stating $98,496) is 49.54%. It will likely be either 49% or 50%. Is it possible that the MSRP is $97,595? That would be exactly 50%. Did they add some other coverage or expense for $901 ($98,496 - $97,595)?
