Default New A6 and A8L are available at 30% off

Autonation is discounting new 2016 A6 and A8L TDI's by 30%. A7's less discount. Lots of Q5's available too. Check em out on their website. I am no way connected to Autonation, just trying to help out forum members who are looking for one.

FYI, the 2016 A8L comes with a $5000 discount already on their sticker for Executive package credit. The 30% is on top of that. That will make a car normally stickered at $95,000 cost $63,000.

Look at the Autonation website. They are a national company with dealers all over the US.

Best price I see on a Q5 is about 15% off. That is consistent with the 5 different local dealers I spoke too. Someone said 20% off is standard. That is a fantasy for Q5's, at least in the NY/NJ/PA area.

I'm seeing about 25% off on the autonation site that the OP mentioned. $40.8k with a $54k sticker.

.....and on a car that over two model years old, how much of a discount is that, really? I'm looking at three year old used Mercedes and BMWs, car that stickered for $60-70K going for less than $35K. Deal of he century? I think not.

Four years Bumper to bumper warranty plus extended emissions warranty as well.

Deal of the Century, perhaps for some.

Used 3 year old cars do not equal new leftover 2 year old vehicles.

I think paying under $64,000 for a new car that has an MSRP of over $95000 with full (4/50000) warranty and 10 year motor and emissions warranty is a good deal. That's why I took it. The A8L TDI is a phenomenal car that I have enjoyed for the last 1 1/2 years and 24,000 miles. The new one I just got, even with the "fix", drives and handles the same, just with slightly lower (1-2 mpg) fuel mileage. No better highway cruiser available for that money.

That's in Plano, TX. NY/NJ area had no such deals. And that's a 2015, not a 2016.

Good luck. Your cruiser, your choice, your money.

Giving this a second thought , now may consider an A7.

Is 25% off too much to ask? Seems reasonable, may try this weekend.

I can get 20% off an A7 , the car blew away the A6 we drove very nice. It had the sport package and a few other bells. Any other concerns longer term folks have on these?
They have the new car warranty. What if something else pops up related to the fix?

We may pull the trigger on this.
