Hi Everyone,

I'm about ready to pull the trigger and order a Q5. What kind of discount should I be aiming for (and what have other people managed to get) from UK Audi dealers? My spec is costing around ?41k to ?45k (depending on whether I go for the 3.0TDI in the end).

Thanks a lot!
Davey

hi davey,

I managed 9% through my local dealer. I got him to match a web price I had from car-finance.net, this was last sept though and my overall cost was nothing near what yours is, you must have selected some nice options.

Aim for a cup of coffee and a smile as with the 1yr waiting list now discounts are like rocking horse poo!!

Most people managed to get approx 5% until recently, but i should think this is falling as even back in feb when i ordered mine most dealers werent interested in doing anything - in fact most didnt even smile!

That's interesting! I would thought it might work the other way - if the waiting lists are a year plus, who is going to be incentivized to wait that long without a decent discount?

Anyone else with experiences of recent negotiations on price?

Thanks!

Not really, think of any car with a waiting list and then think of the resale values - always higher than the new cost, hence no discounts are given on a new one. There is no need to incentivise people to buy them, thats clear from the massive waiting times.

I was in my Audi showroon the other day completing my paperwork on my long awaited Audi ordered last Mid Dec 09. I was told by the salesman that discounts have now disappeared and delivery if order now (end April '10 was probably around Feb / March 2010.

I feel so lucking in getting my 10% and a good trade in on my VW Touareg.I also negotiated a damn good finance deal too. Guess just for once after some 38 yrs of driving I have actually got a great deal for a car.

The best deal i could get was 7% and free Autoglymm protection when i ordered at the end of March for September delivery. Most dealers were not offering any discount at all.

We managed to get 11% but we did contact 9 audi dealers if I remember correctly, in the end we ordered September 2009 and got delivery 12th January 2010....and was worth the wait and enjoying my Q5 enormously!!

You will get minimum to zero discount direct from a dealer atm. Order through a broker instead, e.g. bettercardeal.co.uk who are currently offering 8% off. I have used brokers for the last three cars and there is really no disadvantage. If you have a problem with the car, take it to the local- they make money on warranty work (just bill their time back to Audi).

Most if not all brokers have zero allocation left and several of the ones i spoke to back in feb coulndt even place any orders for 6 months, meaning now about 18 months wait (6 top place the order and 12 standard wait after that).

I went to one of the online sites at the end of March and spent a fair bit of time completing the form and enjoying the thought of the amount I was going to save, before receiving an email a week later informing me that they after speaking to their suppliers they were unable to place the order.

Ended up at Derby Audi negotiating for 2.5 hours and placed the order April 6th hopefully for September delivery

12% after some hard negotiating and using drive the deal.com to get them to price match - they'll tell you no discounts, but they are there to be had!

The best discount I managed to get is 4% from Watford Audi (mine was tax free). At some point I know they were giving 8% but not any more.

I'm in a slightly different position, I'm not buying mine outright but getting it through the business on a 3 year lease. I contacted two dealers to get me the best car for a fixed price per month. One never got back to me at all, the other priced me up at an SE spec no options.

I went through a leasing company referred by our accountants and for the same price they got me up to an S-Line 170 with a couple of grands worth of extras.

I know this is a different situation but I gather the dealers are out to make as much money out of us as possible even when you're prepared to sign on a decent deal there and then, no messing, no test drive. I will always now use a broker.
