That's very helpful, thanks. We're not really in any rush, but good to know for planning purposes.

Given that high demand, is a 3% - 4% MSRP discount still possible or is that unrealistic? Does it matter whether it's the Progressiv or Technik?
From what I understand there is a similar demand for both the Q5 and the Q7 and I was able to negotiate a 6% discount on a MY2018 Q7. I would say It is definitely possible, but might need some arm twisting. From what I have read, anywhere from a 4-6% discount seems attainable

Hi! We're looking into the 2018 A4 Quattro with a convenience package in Grey. Would it be reasonable to try and get $4000 off the MSRP to finance with a balloon payment?

Thanks!

$4k over and above the $2k cash incentive we have this month? If so, then no. The total profit margin on this car is about $3,600, count on getting about 5% off, in the $2,300 area or so.

Is there anyway to get traffic information on MY18 A4? The car does have Audi Connect - would I need to do any other setup?

Wow MRSP 50k? I'm also interested in the A4 Tecknik, but configuring it online, I am always going over 55k+. What other features did you include in your order to get 50k MRSP?
I just bought a 2018 Technik S-Line Black Package in Quantum Grey with manual transmission. I also got adaptive damping suspension, head up display, and heated rear seats.

I'm getting a $4835.75 discount.

If you're in the GTA, PM me and I can hook you up with my dealership.

What does the Audi dealership in Mississauga charge in admin fees for a lease takeover?

Thanks!

Why do so many Audi dealerships use the old Audi logo for their main sign outside? The logo changed back in 2009! For a company that is so mindful of brand image its amazing that Audi would have a logo from back in the 80's in 2017.

My 2018 SQ5 came with cargo net, a divider, privacy screen for cargo and roof racks.

Do these all need to be returned when the lease is up?

I'm thinking of getting rid of all of it except the cargo net... I don't want it taking up space in my garage.

If it is in the agreement, then it is your obligation to return in the same state (not sure how closely Audi inspection checks up these things, you sure don't want to be surprised with a bill after you drop off the car). If they are thrown into the car by your SA, then you are free to do whatever you want.

Yeah, cargo net isn't a big deal, but the cross bars are expensive and you may be dinged if you return it without it.

Hi - I’ve run into a strange situation trying to buy a 2014 A4 from an Audi dealer. Short story - I found a car I liked and made an offer with deposit. After signing the offer, I was told that the car was subject to an Audi recall (80C5) for issues with the auxiliary heater and I’d have to wait for it to be fixed before the car could be delivered to me.

It’s been a couple of weeks and the dealer can’t tell me when Audi will provide the dealership with the information they need to fix it.

Does anyone have any idea when dealers will be able to start fixing these recalls? Also wondering what my rights are if I want to get my deposit back.

Thanks!

Wow I just checked Audi Mississauga and even that dealership uses the old logo on their main dealership signs.

Seriously, whats the deal with the previous Audi logo from 30 years ago being used on Audi dealerships? Seems super cheap for any brand, let alone a luxury brand to not update their main symbol after so many years.
