Amazing Lease Deals!!

Post by W8PMC » Sat Jan 09, 2016 11:16 pm

Just a heads up that Audi are running a Q1 campaign on S8's that's actually cheaper than the crazy deals available 2yrs ago on M5's & E63's.

Without any haggling was offered a 6x23 with 8k miles per annum at £479 plus vat. For 13k miles per annum it rose to £511 plus vat. Not bad for an £83k car as that's around £15k over 2yrs & the car will depreciate at least double that figure over the same time.

Indeed (although I wish I could stretch to a Turbo S) but still one hell of a deal for a flagship Audi. A real shame Audi are less generous with other models :audibash:

thats pretty good, BUT, you would need to want a S8. and at 8.6 meters long your gonna need to leave for every appointment 26 mins early in order to find parking ...

Lol :jump_clap:

I've always liked the A8/S8 & had a D4 for about 18mths which I had no trouble parking in most car parks or my garage, (although some multi stories were a challenge). They're not hugely dynamic, but a light fettle would give you close to C7 RS6 performance for less than half the money.

More for less is a very attractive scenario & had I been looking today I may have had a punt. That said I got offered an M6GC at 'no extra per month' yesterday, which until the dealer realised my car wasn't on PCP, almost sounded like a no brainier.

I like the M6GC. Doesn't look amazing in photos but I used to walk past a silver one every day and it looked menacing.

To be fair considering it's bulk, Audi's S8 did the best at hiding the excess baggage around Millbrooks mountain course when I gave it a test drive. I had been passing on all TTRS and S8 drives but after hearing such positive vibes throughout the day about the S8, I eventually caved in and felt that I had to give it ago. It's no V10 + in Audi's spectrum of cars , but it was a nice drive and a pleasing surprise considering it's the fish most out of water.

To be fair & i agree the S8 is never going to be the most dynamic of Audi's, but given it's only 40kg heavier than the C7 RS6 & .2secs slower to 62, it's hardly a slouch & that's being down on power & torque.

I've not driven the new S8 but had some time in the previous V10 incarnation & that did for certain struggle, but i've heard the dynamics of the new S8/+ are vastly improved over the D3 & the stats would suggest this to be true.

Regardless, the ability to get an £82k motor for such a low outlay is quite staggering & will no doubt see the order books fill up this quarter.

That's an amazing S8 deal! I've just been quoted £1086 per month for a 3 year deal, 30k miles, which had a £14k manufacturers allowance and 2.9% APR. Who's doing the £511 per month deal?

Now seen slightly better offers from a few brokers, although they seem to be drying up. Saw £434 plus vat for 8k earlier today.

I was offered the deal I quoted by Preston Audi.

Really? My only dislike is they're hard to distinguish from most other models in the Audi range nowadays until close up. Hard to tell the difference between the 4/6/8, but hardly an ugly car.

One of the draws is how subtle the styling of the S8 is over the rest of the range. Will be interesting to see what the + looks like.

Am hearing a few reports that other than changes to compensate the gearbox differences, the S8's are hitting the same power/torque levels as the C7 RS6 which i found surprising & i guess why the on paper stats are so close.

Is there an echo?
