Default 2019 Audi S5 Sportback custom order deal?

Hi everyone,

I currently drive a 2016 Cadillac ATS and my lease is up soon. My top choice so far is the 2019 Audi S5 Sportback. I'm rather particular with how I want it configured and as a result, there are no dealers around me that have the exact configuration, which is the following.

2019 Audi S5 Sportback, Premium Plus TFSI Tiptronic
  • Exterior: Navarra Blue metallic
  • Interior: Fine Nappa leather in Magma Red
  • Black optic plus package
  • S sport package
  • Carbon Atlas inlays
  • Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound
  • Dynamic steering

If I go the custom order route, I'm told this could take up to 4 months. I'm willing to wait for what I want, but think I'll be able to negotiate a decent deal? I'm looking at a 10k mile lease for 39 months with $3k down. Curious of what my monthly payments would be and the overall purchase price if it would be "worse" compared to buying something off the lot, which I'm assuming would have a better deal attached.

Anyone else go the custom order route for a new S5 Sportback?

Thanks!

- Scott

You are probably stuck between a rock and a hard place as the 2019 S5’s — all models — have just started hitting dealerships over the last couple of weeks. This means there isn’t the discount on a model that’s been sitting on the dealers lot for 3 to 6 months.

In your self-described situation, I would go the “order what you want” and negotiate your best deal. Many dealers will not even require a “good faith” deposit unless you are ordering a custom color or something outside of the “normal loaded S5.”

Good Luck.

Yup, I think you're right. My custom build is $66,690 and for a 10k mile lease for 39 months is $997/mo. before excise tax and insurance (live in MA). Woah - that's a big payment. They said to expect 6% off of MSRP, so I think that will lower the cost by $4k or so. Looks like I might build a less optioned car to reduce the MSRP, something like the following.

Exterior: Navarra Blue metallic
Interior: Fine Nappa leather in Magma Red
Carbon Atlas inlays

That configuration would be about $59k before the magical "6% off". I'm hoping that brings payments in the mid-600's, but we'll see.

These cars are very expensive to lease, really costing far more per month than is logical. Reducing your MSRP by $7,000 will bring your payment down into the 800 range, but no where near the mid-600s I'm afraid

Forgot to mention Iíll be putting $3k down. Could do as much as $5k, but more than that is silly for a lease.

I can build a loaded S3 for $50k. Maybe thatís a better option to get to mid-600ís for monthly payment, but the S5 is so much sweeter.

Iím on the dealer side of things.

no one is going to quote you a lease price per month for a car thatís 3 - 4 months (at least) away. Programs change on a monthly basis. The price of the car itself can be negotiated as a % discount off the price...but even the car price and option pricing is a moving target until itís in the US, as any manufacturer reserves the right to update pricing when they want. Doesnít happen often, but it happens.

The deal as far as dealer discount also wonít really be remarkably any better nor worse for an order vs stock tbh. In stock might mean you compromise a little on the total package but you enjoy the car sooner. Special order means you get exactly what you want, but on a delayed basis. What can change are incentives which you qualify for.

You canít build a loaded S3 for $50k, it would be a modest one. A $50k S3 is most definitely not mid $600ís per month, especially once taxes are factored in. An A4 if similar pricing is barely there and that car has a much higher residual.

The argument could easily be made that money down on any lease is foolish, but thatís a separate conversation.

Great. Hope I can do that good with a RS 5 sportback. Looking soon to buy. But realize my indoor parking space is tight already with A7. I see the width ion the RS 5 is 79.9" and the A7 is 75.2." Going to be tough.

You won't be able to get 11% off an RS anything unless it's a 2018 model. The most folks have been receiving are anywhere from MSRP to 6% off, and most have had existing relationships with dealers. You would be able to get a better deal on current MY A6/A7 than an RS model.
