Default Ordering Window for 2014s Closed

I have been on the fence the last few weeks regarding putting my order in for a 2014 or waiting for the 2015 order sheet. I don't expect big changes based on all of the information other members have given out here; but I wasn't sure if minor updates such as 4GLTE for Audi Connect, or maybe even the HUD might come across on the 2015.

I received word from my local dealer yesterday that they are not able to place any more orders for 2014s and the 2015 Order Sheet should be able near the first of May. Has anyone else received the same news?

If the order sheet doesn't reveal any of the above information, then snagging a 2014 that is already on the lot might be more cost effective.

Wait 1-2 weeks and you'll know what MY15 has to offer. There will be enough 2014 left if you want it fast.

I'm waiting to order one of the first '15.

I'm guessing that the biggest change in the 2015's will be in the price.

I would assume the prices would go up--especially with the weakening of the US $ this year vs. the Euro. Just a guess though.

And pricing comes out usually a couple months after the order guide? So if you were to order a 2015 when the order guide comes out, you might be SOL when the pricing comes out?

If you don't like the pricing, yeah you're likely out of luck by June. Any remaining 2014s you probably wouldn't have much leverage on. So best to figure out what you want to do sooner rather than later while there's still 2014s on the lot.

However, I wouldn't anticipate the price to go up substantially, it's just that the prices always do go up each year. Usually a couple hundred or so is a safe estimate.

IIRC, the B8 S4 was considerably cheaper than the B7.
Not exactly an apples to apples comparison though.

I fully expect prices to go up ~$500 or so, along with a few additions/subtractions to the available interior and exterior colour swatches.

Yes. It has happened. MY 2013 S5 was thousands less than MY's S5 2008 thru 2012. Thought was probably that MY 2013 with blown V6 would not sell as well as MY's 2008 thru 2012 with 4.2 V8.

However, gas guzzler tax was eliminated with the 2013 S5 V6 and some decontenting, such as 18"s from 19"s and Alcantara from leather, which were now options.

It has never been applied.
FYI in Europe the Audi cars are more expensive 30-40%

Do you think 2014s will still stay around 4-5% off (or 6% with ACNA) or would you think that a little more wiggle room would be negotiable?

Default Just ordered the 2015

I am not sure about the published price but my dealer maintained the price we were working on when I gave him the go ahead to order. At that time he found out that the window had closed. If price went down, then I made a bad decision. He said he did not have the price but they anticipated prices staying level or very slight increase. Anyway, I am glad to get this going.

Estimated delivery date? Did you use ACNA pricing? Congrats either way!

I do not have a delivery date yet. The order is just in the hopper for now waiting until the May processing begins. The dealer had two slots available now for the May orders, I have one of them. Their are some slight changes in the packages, the Tech packages (MMI, etc. now includes side assist.) Prices were not available yet. The Sales manager was getting this off the phone and did not have any order guides yet. He was able to access the order system to input the order, however it was all going into the suspense mode until processing begins.

Obviously if you have Supplier you're locked into 6% off, otherwise it's up to how much your dealer is willing to deal on whatever remaining stock they have (or can get a hold of). I could see as stock goes down their price coming up until closer to the actual arrival date of the 2015s (as if you want one soon, there's no option but what's on lots).

But some dealers don't try to wring every last penny they can, and some people are really good at negotiating, so obviously YMMV.

I dont know buying a audi 2014 just before 2015's come out seems like a buying a Iphone just before the new model comes out.

Audi does not do material discounts on their cars maybe 3-6% and if you qualify for the 6% (as I do) then getting them early in the calendar year seems wiser than later.

Why would you rush to get the 2014 when they are not discounted and 2015 configurations will be known in 30 days.

Price going up, audi Q5 is really at its price limit they are starting to fall into Cayenne territory for a car that is based on the a4 series.

A nicely configured Q5 is about $49,000

The 2015 is not going to be a redesign. The analogy doesn't work.
