I paid $35000 for a 2002 A4 1.8T (stick, 27000 km), fully decked out
except for Xenon lights. You can get dealer invoices (how much a dealer
makes on the car) on a number of places on the net (I think it's around
$5000 on a A4 but don't take my word for it). Audi is also giving pretty
good financing right now (2.9% on 60 mo for new it think - compare to
BMW at 7% for 48 mo).

There are not many Audi vendors to choose from where I am but I was
thinking of emailing the sales dpts from a hotmail acct stating what I
want and when and asking for a bid. Each would be contacted separately
with no mention of the bidding process. Also, I am not really looking
forward to negotiating with the dealers.
As for price and dealer invoice, it is simple: do they want to sell me
a car today and for what price. As long as they know I am in the game,
they will be interested. How much is the question.
The guys I dealt here in Ottawa were actually very nice (compared to GM
and others I bought from) and came down with the price immediately. Here
is a link for dealer invoice pricing ($US - Canadian shouldn't be too
It appears that they are only making ~ $CDN 3750 for A4 1.8T.

Thanks, I'll check the link.
I have done extensive research on the nuts and bolts of the car which
is why I am upgrading from a VW to an Audi and not some other car.
Ultimately it comes down to what, if any, discount can I get. I
checked on canada.com for A4s and found an 2003 Avanti with <8K km for
$43k; list is $47k. Not exactly the vehicle I was looking for but it
gives me a point on the on the graph.

I was just at the local dealer and found an A4 Quattro with most
packages offered listed at $45.5K and without much effort (none,
actually) on my part, they offered $42.5K. Which is what I figured I
could get (% wise) off on a discount: 7%.
Just paid a bit over $50K incl. taxes and everything for 2004 1.8T
Quattro, auto, xenon, premium, sport package.
I found a large variance in how low each dealer would go. About $3K
difference from the lowest to highest offers.
Don't bother paying for a dealer invoice, I did and it was useless.
Knowing that dealer cost is about 10% less than MSRP is good enough.
