36mo/12k miles/yr – residual 55% – money factor .00048
My Take: It took me some time to “warm up” to the redesigned A4 in general. I preferred the 2002 model style, but really hated the 1.8T engine because the coil packs were prone to “blow” and the engine was far too underpowered for an AWD sedan of that size. In any case, the current model has slowly grown on me. The front grill still looks like my goldfish’s mouth during feeding time, but the peppy 2.0T engine makes up for it by providing you with very little turbo lag and getting better gas mileage than the 1.8T. The residual and money factor is looking pretty darn good right now, so if you want to lease a convertible to get ready for the summer, this is not a bad choice.
