@afretes Thanks I will aim for that type of discount.

As an Audi rep, do you have any comment of pulling customers out of leases early to get them into a new car. How often does it happen? If so, at what point of the contract?

Thanks!
Yes, I do it all the time. I keep track of my clients, and I get notified when they're in for service. We record the kms on the car every time they're in, that helps me determine if they'll exceed their km allowance. I also calculate more or less when they may need any major service; tires, brakes, etc. I can then recommend terminating the lease and getting into a new car, not always at no cost, but it's a case of pay now or pay later.

Is Audi professional a new thing? I just received the latest CMAJ and I saw the ad (discounts up to 5k). Naturally, it doesn't apply to the RS or R8 models but it's a start. Now if we could only get Porsche to do the same...

Might be. Never heard of it though. When I was cross shopping cars Mercedes had mentioned to me a $500 OMA discount but no such thing existed at Audi.

I say just submit a one number offer. I think $74,000 - $74,500 + taxes would be very fair. After all, it is a 1 model yr old car.

If you buy new, you would take the msrp - say 6% and add $2800 in fees = $76,800. Then for being a demo, I suggest to deduct $2,500 , thus $74,300 would be a target to shoot for
Bought it today. 80k taxes in. With cargo mat winter mats and cross bars. They wouldn’t budge on anymore throw ins. On the screen shows 10.5% off is that even real?
Plus the sales agent show the code for not making $ on the car showing a - sign is that true?

What is the definition of "per program year per client"? Does that mean per calendar year?

Is this for new only? Or does it apply to CPO as well?

Created an account to ask.

Can you expand on the executive allowance? I can choose allowance or a fleet car (Q3 or A3 are my current Audi options). I choose a top of the line Subaru Outback in fall 2016 since I wanted the safety features and needed the space for two car seats during non work use.

I will probably buy out the Outback for my wife if the numbers make sense and KMs don’t get too high since it’s such a good family car. I like Fleet since there’s zero other cost, but I’m considering purchasing or leasing an A5 sportback or Q5 for my next work car using my allowance. Am I correct in assuming that I could qualify for fleet pricing for these vehicles using my allowance based on what you posted? The invoice price of my Outback purchased through Fleet was quite good compared to msrp; if I could get a similar discount for an A5 sportback or Q5 for work use, I’d be quite happy.

Thanks for the info!

Exec allowance is one of our many corporate programs, and it has nothing to do with business fleet (BF). BF is in place to recognize only companies that own 3 or more cars, individuals that own 3 or more cars aren't eligible for it.
Exec allowance (EA) recognizes individuals that get a car allowance by offering them a certain additional discount, this discount changes from model to model. EA has nothing to do with fleet pricing, that price is reserved for fleet companies the likes of; Wheels leasing, Element fleet management, ARI financial, etc. These companies buy anywhere from 10 to 20 cars every year from me.
Your EA allowances for leasing/financing are:
Q5: $$750
A5 SB: $1,000
