My wife's 335 lease is ending in a few months, and we're looking at 3 options:

1) Lease an 2011/12 X3 35
2) Lease a 2011/12 Q5 2.0T
3) Purchase a 2009 CPO Q5 3.2

I've looked at several Audi sites, but I can't find one that gives the level information on Audi's the way Bimmerfest does. The key things I'm interested in:

1) Invoice prices, money factors and listing of which fees are valid vs. non-valid

2) An internet sales person as good as Adrian Avila or Philippe Kahn

3) European Delivery & Leases (for example, does Audi give an ED discount, but base the residual value off of the US MSRP the way BMW does? Do they pay the 2nd lease payment the way BMW does?)

4) Do people chip the Q5 like other 2.0T engines and what are the costs/ramification?

Quality Audi sites (not just a Google search) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Yes, the Audi can be (and often is) chipped. The dealer might even do this for you. They are very performance oriented in my experience and being a VW family member have a plethora of tuners available. My wife has an A4 so I visit both dealers and I have to say the Audi store is just as accomodating (in some ways even moreso) than BMW's store. I would not hesitate a minute to get another Audi we have been very happy with hers. While you are shopping, be sure to check out the XC60T6R too. Volvo also have ED (as does Audi) and there is a discount just as is the case with BMW. Lots of great choices out there now!:angel:

My wife just asked me what I am going to do next year for my new vehicle. I told her I was going to sit on this one a little while longer as the new X3 becomes more of a disappointment every time I drive one.

One of the vehicles I have my sights set on is the Audi S4. I would get an RS3 in a heartbeat but the idiots don't sell them here. Just like the moronic BMWNA wont sell MT 's anymore here.

She asked why not get another X3 MT. I told her although the manufacture them here in the US, sell them in the EU, they won't sell them here.

She said why not get the new Countryman. You like my car (except for stiff suspension).

It's a thought mini cooper makes part of their profits from selling tweak components like JCW for the MC. And they actually have a good stereo in them :rofl:
