Looking into several cars now. I may be interested in a S5 Sportback, if the deal is right. Slightly less exciting drive than a c43 amg, but it looks good and I think I'd be satisfied with it. Just started negotiating. What should I aim for? I am open to financing or leasing (36 months, lowest kms possible, 0$ down).

I was quoted 72.25k total sales price (MSRP 67.5 K) before taxes, with a 36 months lease of about 1222$ per month taxes included. A little bit much for that car imo. What's reasonable to aim for?

based on your figure of $1222 per month OTR.

Looks like $0 discount and there is a possible $1000 in some kind of fees added on top to the purchase price ... could it be 36 months prepaid maintenance plan charge ???

Given this car is pretty new and no factory credit going on now ...

Assumption: on your 18 S5 Sportback Technik - MSRP $67,500
36 months
16,000km per year
3.9% interest rate
61% residual (as based on Audi.ca)
$0 down
$2675 fees ($395 dealer admin fee included) rolled into payment. No other bogus fees.
Assume 4% discount

Projected payment - $907 + taxes OTR

Thanks booblehead.

They put the residual at 58% at 3 months, and from MSRP of 67.5k ( including about 2k of options), they added almost 5000$ of fees (documentation fees, winter package, window tint, tire/rim protection, speed rated surcharge, etc). I would feel ok paying about 1000$ per month for this car.

at 58%, then the dealer assumed you want 25,000km per year, hence the residual would then be 58%. If that's the case, dealer offered you $675 off on a $67,500 car. Winking Face

what's in that winter package ... rubber floor mats ? Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Yup, rubber floor mats. I figured they're trying to take me to the cleaners... Not going to happen, haha.

I have corrected the revised monthly payment calc.

if you fought for 2.5% off, then it would be $936 + taxes OTR

Yup, S5 SB technik. Only options I want if I order one = carbon atlas trim and adaptive suspension.

Dealer's latest argument for no rebate is that it is a very popular car and they can't even keep one in stock.

Can you price me a 2018 A3 w/ progressive option from the GTA?
I'm not a bit suprised, but the Ottawa location is only giving 2% off MSRP!

Go to Montreal. I bought my S3 at Lauzon and they gave me around 5% off, mind you this was 2 years ago. At the very least you should be getting $1000 off and free Audi Care.

Forgot about MTL and it's worth the drive.

Audi is pleased to announce pricing for the latest two members to join the Audi Sport family.

The RS 5 Coupe starts at an MSRP of $82,500 while the exciting new R8 Spyder V10 plus starts at $229,500.

The RS 5 Coupe features an all-new 2.9 bi-turbo V6 with 450 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Full torque is available at a low 1,900 RPM leading to incredible response and ample power throughout the entire rev range. Building on the stylish S5 Coupe, the RS 5 is transformed by its iconic fender flares, large wheels and aggressive styling front and rear.

The Audi R8 Spyder V10 plus from the workshop of Audi Sport GmbH is the fastest series production convertible model from the brand with the four rings. Its unmistakable 610 hp V10 mid-engine offers intense driving performance and powers the quattro permanent all wheel drive. The standard performance program, R8 bucket seats and many components made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer distinguish this high-performance sports car. Incredibly high revving up to 8,700 rpm, lightning-quick responsiveness and an awe inspiring, voluminous sound – the V10 mid-engine is an object of fascination. With 610 hp and maximum torque of 560 Newton meters at 6,500 revolutions per minute, it is the most powerful series-production engine from the brand with the four rings.
