    A1 savings

    Hi,

    Was an Audi nut myself a few months ago but recently got an abarth, knowing how helpful this forum is I was wondering if I could get some advice.

    Doing a bit of research for a friend, he's looking at the 1.4 sport a1.
    What sort of savings have you guys managed to get or optional extras, trying to see how far you can push for discounts or free extras. He's looking at a pretty standard spec on finance if that helps?
    SPEC/DONE:
    Bose, 18" Wheels, Recarro, EBC Turbo Groove discs and Yellow Stuffs pads, TT Pedals, Coilovers, R-Tech Stage 1, Yellow dog bone mount, Powerflex Front ARB Bushes, FK AK Street Coilovers, LCR Front Splitter

    WANTED/TO DO:
    R32 Rear ARB (or uprated ARBs front and back), S3 Armrest, Brembos, FMIC, 3"DP, Cat Back Exhaust

    I used an site called orange wheels, got a quote and took it into Audi dealer and got them to match it, saved just over £2K, and got 5 years free servicing on my Black Edition. I also think you best going on a really bad ( weather wise) day later on a Saturday or sunday afternoon. If the dealers had a **** day, they'll do the deal. Good luck

    Not sure I agree with that comment!!!






    Not much in it really!!! Diesels depreciate awfully aswell

    Yes, otherwise I wouldn't of suggested it. Take a screen print of your quote and try it.

    Good deal Roo but in fairness look what you had to go through to get it. Compension just deserved mate.

    I went in on the Saturday afternoon, did the deal and picked it up a couple of days later, no hassle. Besides the £2K+ I saved I also got a free Audi 4 ring key ring lol

    There's deals to be made out there!

    Prices have risen slightly and also don't now take into account the additional £750 Audi Finance payment which is also no longer included.

    Considering the demand and waiting times for Audi A1's their depreciation is a disgrace
