DonnyAudi - SoCal Brand Specialist!

Hello everyone,

My name is Donovan (Donny), I have been on this forum for quite a while now under my other name. It’s been a blast hacking some deals personally, as well as for friends and family! The time has come, a new opportunity presented itself, and I decided to dabble in the car industry.

Being a long time member myself, I know what most hackrs are looking for, and I hope to bring deals that are appealing to this audience. (As close as I can with Audi)

I am located in the beautiful Carlsbad area. But my dealership can cater to those near and far. Including shipping if necessary.

I appreciate the opportunity to help out this community, and I have been fortunate enough to help my first Hackr this past week!




I recently leased a Q7 from Donovan. It was a smooth and painless process. He was very prompt with communications and we closed the transaction in a day. In person, he is even more friendly than his text messages. As he has used this website (earlier in his life) he is completely familiar with the lingo and the requirements of fellow leaseHackrs. If you are in he market for an AUDI in San Diego /SoCal area, I wholeheartedly recommend that you contact him.

Thank you Donovan.

I recently leased my first Audi from Donovan, a 2019 Audi Q5. We did all the negotiating upfront and when I got to the dealer every number matched exactly what we had agreed - NO surprises. The dealership itself is new and quite large; waiting for the finance guy was basically nil. This is how every dealership experience SHOULD be. He is still in touch with me after the fact checking in and making sure everything is well and good! I hope to see Donovan again in 39 months :smile:

Thanks Andrew! I appreciate the kind words and I’m glad you enjoyed your experience at our dealership. I know it’s a bit away from you, but please stop by anytime! Come back in 39 months and i’ll beat your current deal! :sweat_smile:

Donnovan has been very transparent and helpful during my process of leasing an S4. It is my first lease, so i was an easy target to other dealers in my area. Our negotiations were all done upfront without any surprises. The deal i got from him was the one that i was expecting and although i opted for a deal in the North Cal, i will definitely go to him first for my next Audi in 3 years :slight_smile:

I recently leased a Q7 from Donovan and he was great to work with! I came in from Arizona and he had us in and out very quickly! I got the deal I was looking for and it was painless.

Thanks again!

A big Thank You to Donny, as we just picked up our shiny new Audi S5 SB this week and we could not be more thrilled with the car, the great deal and the service Donny provided to us! After researching and deciding upon just the car we wanted, we also spent a lot of time learning from the LeaseHackr community what we needed to know about leasing. We noticed Donny’s name mentioned quite a bit in positive reviews, so when we were ready to move forward, we decided to reach out to Donny. We told him what we wanted and he found just the right car at another dealer. He quoted us a great price right off the bat (better than other dealers had quoted) and we quickly came to a better deal than we really expected we could ever get. Donny had the car transferred and ready for delivery in under 24 hours and when we arrived at the dealership he patiently explained all the features and details of the car to all 3 of us. Right afterwards we met with finance, where everything was just as we had negotiated, spent a couple of minutes signing our documents and then we were driving off in our new car! Donny made the whole process so easy and stress free, all while giving us a really great deal. If you’re thinking about buying or leasing an Audi, don’t hesitate to reach out to Donny. We look forward to seeing him again in another 36 months!


I really appreciate the kind words Ralph! It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful family and I am glad I could make it an enjoyable experience for all of you. If there’s anything you need now or in the future you have my contact! Enjoy the S5, it is a gorgeous build!
