I still think what they did was low. Sorry.
Additionally, the dealer has to pay Audi for the CPO warranty and would pass that along in the rebuy price. Most dealers also charge a fee to do this as there's time involved in the transfer paperwork. Normally, this would all be agreed to and done in writing at the time of the transfer (with an included proviso that the car would pass a CPO inspection fpr qualification). It sounds like either there wasn't a firm commitment either way, a misunderstanding or the dealer pulled a fast one. The latter sounds more like what a generic used car lot might do but seems very surprising for an Audi dealer, especially with a customer who leased/purchased a new model.
