    Getting the Tech Pack discounted/free?

    From searching this forum and reading earlier threads, I understand that the technology pack was once offered for free. Has anyone managed to negotiate this even though the offer is no longer running (or at least lower the cost of the tech pack)?

    I really want the larger, higher resolution screen - but £1,495 is a lot just for that!

    I'm not aware that the Tech pack has ever been offered for free. The standard SD Satnav was offered as a free option when the car first launched. I got that free on mine but not the full Tech pack.

    There are some better discounts available for ordering now it seems, now that the car has been out for a good few months. When Audi first started accepting orders before the car was actually released, a free Satnav upgrade was all that was really being offered, for me anyway.

    Tech pack brings a lot more than just the screen size increase, including some element of extra resale value as well I expect.

    I was told the opposite. Tech pack vs SD Nav will make little difference in 3 years time.. I wasn't convinced!

    Bigger screen I think will provide a bit of extra value compared to the standard one, maybe not the other stuff like the touchpad (though I find that more useful than I thought I would), HDD Jukebox, improved nav software (not sure what is improved about it but it says that!), traffic sign recognition (since I have lane assist too) etc

    Oh, and if you like to keep your sat nav up to date, they offer 5 free map updates (worth over £200 each if done at the dealers) with the tech pack.

    I got mine for £280, as it was built and in stock so some options retrofitted but I wasn't bothered about the Tech Pack that was installed and they seem desperate to move stock, so don't always look to order.
