    Can RS3 be had for under MSRP?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I've bought tons of cars, and don't think I've ever paid MSRP...with that said, today I went to my local Audi dealer to see about ordering a 2019 RS3. I picked out options, color, etc...We didnt haggle too much about price, but he said ordering one for MSRP would be best I could hope for. I told him I'd think about it before committing with a deposit.

    Before I write them off and look elsewhere (and invest more time with another dealer), is there any truth to this, or should I be able to do better than that?

    Ordering one? Probably MSRP.
    Quarter end on an in-stock or prior year model? A couple percent under msrp.

    I was lucky enough to get $3300 off on my TT RS, but that was pure luck.

    About 3.5% off MSRP for me.

    Unfortunately, RS3’s are few and far between out here in Northern CA. I had dealers tell me $5k over when I was looking to order earlier this year. I also found a couple that would do sticker. On a whim, I checked out Costco’s car buying program. To my surprise, I found a dealer (Elk Grove Audi) that was a Costco affiliate and I got roughly $1800 under sticker. While this isn’t as impressive as some of the deals people seem to get on the East coast, the process was pain free and I got exactly the car I wanted. If you happen to be a Costco member (and even if you’re not), I’d highly recommend Vince Webb at Elk Grove Audi. Super nice guy and fantastic to deal with. Plus, they’re barely more than an hour from you. Post here or PM me if you want his number.

    I've talked to dozens of dealerships and most were willing to negotiate amd sell under MSRP. I got mine fpr $1300 off BUT $4k more on trade than any other dealership.

    6% off MSRP on an ordered car. in the northeast. seems like it doesn’t happen on the west coast. if you go to enough dealers and are willing to walk away you can get a good deal

    I shopped like 10 dealers in New York state, and they all seemed willing to do atleast 2k off MSRP on in stock units, not so sure what they'll do on an order. I bought from Classic Audi in Westchester, they were even advertising a 2k discount right on their website from the get go.

    I'm guessing you can get some really sweet deals on MY18 stock right about now? If you can find a new MY18 on a dealer lot with the spec you want why not go that way?

    MY18's will be discounted very soon. With the elimination of the carbon ceramic brakes, i'd be scrambling to find a MY 18 at this point. If you dont care about carbon ceramic's, then don't rush finding one you want already on a lot.

    I was able to get 1500.00 off MSRP... got me under my arbitrary threshold for OTD.

    There are quite a few for sale here in Southern California. Our local dealership has four left. Bakersfield Audi has a Sonoma Green one, and Walter's Audi has an Orange one. Penske Audi has a few, but they have all the extras on them, but show 500.00 off MSRP. I wasn't ready to pull the trigger, but they had a Red one for 3 or 4k off MSRP for a weekend. I would have been ok with red if I could have done it.

    For those not aware and looking..

    Just use https://www.audioffers.com/

    Plug in your ZIP and then click on EXPLORE INVENTORY and filter for RS3. You'll see all inventory for your general zip code.

    Example:
    New York Tri State area showed 35
    Southern California - 60
    South Florida - 11
    Houston - 6
    etc

    I would push for 10% off MSRP.
    Not an easy task, but it would help if you had many dealers in a 150 mile radius, you could hound on 1-2days before months end, and be persistant.
    Oh, and drive around every corner of their lot, they like to hide stock.

    $3K of discount on a TTRS was the best I could get. End of month to hit numbers did help.

    $4500 off on an ordered car last month in Massachusetts. I could have held out for more but didn't have any fight left in me.

    well tax rates and registrations differ in all 50 states. My car has pretty much everything but the dynamic plus package and was about 67k all in after 6% discount and 1k loyalty. I like in a high sales tax area. So about 91k AUD so they are comparable.

    Got mine in April for 6% off of MSRP and Audicare in the northeast. Only took a couple of emails to negotiate.
