The lease end for my Audi is end of this month - June 2023. The lease end inspection said $200 estimate for a dent is about $200. I got the roof rails but never mounted them. I moved from FL to AZ last month and during the move I forgot to bring those rails with me. Questions for the gurus:
Will I be charged for roof rails If I return without them? I have original sticker and it did not list roof rails
My right tail light does not work and I get the warning all the time. The lease end inspection did not list this. Will I be charged for this?
The car being Quattro, I have to replace all the tires as ended up different tires due to the two passenger side tires had nails at two different times in a week. Now I have to replace all the tires. I am going to get some used tires with a tread of 6/32.
If they didn’t notice the rails missing, you are free and clear.
If you can get matching tires and can prove to AFS that you did (pictures, receipts) then go for it, otherwise just pay the fine. Sometimes trying to prove it is so much work you might as well not saved $50 in tire fees
I’m not sure about Audi but with some leases you actually own the port installed items (not sure how they were packaged and sold).
It comes down to which items are ammotized in the lease and which are paid for completely, so they might not even expect them back.
I learned about this returning a volvo, I threw out half the “protection package”, which is basically all weather floor mats. Turning it in I was planning to purchase new mats and was told they weren’t required as I owned them.
Got you. The tires were OK at the time of inspection. I had like 6/32 on all the tires. So, the inspection for the tires passed. Then two tires got shot in a span of one week. I had to replace the front passenger first and then the rear passenger. (both are used). For Quattro vehicles, as per Audi policy, all the tires must have matching brand, size and quality. So, now I have to replace all the 4 tires.
