    Audi Dealer Deposit

    Just a quick question I need answered:

    Is there a set amount I need to put down for a deposit on an A3 from an Audi dealer?

    Thanks

    Pretty sure its about 500, but in these hard times I think pretty much anything to secure a deal will do

    Depends on the dealer - normally anywhere from 500 or 1k depending on the cost of the car

    Things might have changed but I had to put a grand down. I guess it depends on what and where you are ordering though.

    On a used car you'll probably get away with 250 if it secures the deal at the moment. New cars that are fairly mainstream is 500. Factory order in strange colours or that have a really high spec maybe a 1000 or 10%. Everyone knows that you are always entitled to your deposit back whatever happens, right? It is just a deterent for the obvious reasons.

    If you agree figures with the dealer and then he asks for a deposit, act shocked and say you can give them half of it!

    Yeah definately. I'll agree a figure first before we go any further, then hopefully he'll be more obliged to bring the deposit down. I can afford up to 400 at the minute, and I'll be happy if I can get the car to 8k, so we'll see.

    Just got off the phone to them.

    He wont go down any more than 9k, and wants 1000 deposit. Surely I can get a better deal..?
