Audi A6 2.0 tdi s line ultra s tronic

£254 a month + 6 month deposit = £7620

What do you guys think of this deal? And how is the company any experiences with them?

(I'm considering getting this as my first lease car)

8k mileage is more than enough for me

Also what is this thing about Audi being front wheel drive? Is it really a bad thing?

First deal too, if I've made any mistakes I'm sorry.

If anyone has any other automatic car deals for the "more premium" cars please share! Thanks

Front wheel is better but id buy a BMW 4 before this, not sure if the A6 is a new model or not, or still the old model like A5

Front wheel drive is actually much more stable on slippery surfaces and guarantees better traction on launch. Rear wheel drive is more for drifting enthusiasts... which let's be honest not too many out there are :-P

The price looks pretty good actually for that particular model against other leasing co's

But if your serious id email the deal to some audi deals across the country and you could get them to match the deal and not charge you the admin fee, thats what a lot of people did with the recent A4 deals, saves you worrying about dealing with a broker

Not sure where your based but try York Audi as they matched the A4 deal for me without too much trouble, others mentioned Hull Audi and Oxford Audi

Have you looked at deals on this site?

It is certainly interesting - I thought it was a spoof website at first, but it isn't .... !!
The owner was on "Dragons Den" a few years ago and turned down the offers for a share in her company!

Hi I'm very serious about getting this deal but I'm struggling to find the contact details for the Audi dealers. Could you help me please? PM me or just comment here! Thanks! And I'm located in east London

Id have a look on the audi.co.uk website and get your local dealers and google them to see who owns them, you probably have a better chance of getting a match if your area has dealers owned by different companies - for example every Audi dealer in my area is owned by Lookers so they can charge what they like knowing most people wont bother to shop around - lookers in Glasgow laughed when I asked them to match the A4 deal but York Audi owned by JCT600 matched it in minutes, will cost me £25 or so to get to York from here to pick it up which is no problem.

You could also just email every dealer near you, their own websites linked from audi.co.uk, but if you do dont mention the arrangment fee from the broker, just cover the rental and up front payment and you will hopefully save the arrangement fee

i have the a6 and is a very good car. not lease but really happy with it

Try carwow. I got a cracking price for my current car

I want this. But doing 40k a year isn't going to work on lease. So what can I do?

​Front wheel drive guarantees better traction on launch? That's the exact opposite of what it does in comparison to rear wheel drive. There's a reason most performance cars are either RWD or 4WD.

I got an A4 deal from gateway2lease in January. Customer service was good, they went through all the features of the car with me on delivery, can't fault them.

My last three vehicles have been with G2L and nobody else has come close to the deals I went with. Granted that was before they changed there website when good deals were easy to spot now you have to scroll your way through endless deal after deal after deal to try and spot anything decent.
A6 deal doesn't sound anything special than usually offered tbh.

Shem is right. The weight of the engine over the wheels presses the tyres into the tarmac which results in better traction. Performance cars are typically rear wheel drive because they oversteer at speed, this is easy to correct and results in little loss of speeed. Front wheel drives understeer, this requires the driver to lift of the throttle to correct (slower).

AWD are quicker in slippery conditions as they moderate power according to individual wheel traction. They are the best solution but are nearly always heavier, so require a very good engine. For example in a GT-R

The lesson - if you are going to correct someone at least be correct!

4 series is a poser coupe (A5 equivalent). The A6 is comparable to a 5-Series.

The A6 is about 5 years into its life so is not new but not old. I actually have one on the company and it is very very good at everything but not exceptional at anything. Its very comfortable and the cabin is outstanding.

Also the A6 shares nothing in common (drivetrain aside) with an A5 and never has done. It common DNA is with an A7 (aka "dog taking a poo", "the hunchback A6")

You should try that Google search thing on the internet, I hear it is very good for finding things like Audi dealers close to where you live.

I'm looking at a lease I guess they can help for under 2K a year for 24 months 8 to10k miles on a diesel cactus auto.

Lol half of their deals don't even exist. Enquired about this car and they gave me a monthly payment of around £370 with a high deposit

Hmmm, 8k to look like a mancunian drug dealer.

Best avoided.

£370 matches more closely to what's showing when you search using WhatCar's lease finder.

That website just gives me a headache! Plus the deals aren't great on Ling Cars.

Anyway this is very good deal for the Audi A6, good spec plus its the S ironic. Soooo tempting! Heat added!

I'm ordering an A-class from Evans and Halshaw unless you want the AMG it's less that £250 a month

I had no problems at all with my Focus ST3 lease with gateway2lease. Good email communication and followup emails to make sure everything was ok. Due to hand my ST3 back in September hopefully that goes problem-free as this is my first lease car.

He said performance cars, not hot hatches, there is quite a difference!
Generally fwd is better in the snow and ice, presume that it is due to the weight of the engine over the front wheels and the fact that the front wheels steer too.
Rear wheel drive is best for when you want to put a lot of power down, you won't find a lot of 200bhp + cars being front wheel drive. Torque steer becomes a big problem in high power front drive cars, as well as general traction/wheelspin

Shem is not right. When you launch a car the weight transfers to the rear of the car, and the front becomes light. This is why fwd drives cars wheelspin easily on a hard launch. Why do you think top fuel dragsters are rwd as opposed to fwd? If you are going to correct someone at least be correct.

Rear wheel drive is a much nicer driving experience. A bit hairy in the snow mind

The front becomes lighter under acceleration, but we are talking about launch. Thats moving off from a standing start. When the car is not moving the end with the engine is heavier. You may have a point after 5 yards but then you are moving and we are not talking about that. We are talking about getting moving or "launching"

Where do you think the engine is on a dragster? Err... over the rear wheels. With the exception of Porsche most RWD cars have the engine at the front and little weight on the rear.

It should be noted that higher performance cars tend to be RWD due to issues that arise when the front wheels are trying to do both traction and steering, which results in torque steer as someone else pointed out. After around 220-250bhp it all becomes to much for the front wheels to do everything. Recent improvments in diffs have helped but are not perfect.

I think if you bought it new, even with a decent discount, you'd be looking at an £8k loss after 2 years, and have the hassle of finding a buyer for it. So maybe your point is more about the madness of buying a flash car (which I agree with unless it's very, very special)?

I used to be dead against leasing, thinking it was just another person in the chain to get some money out of me, but I'm coming around to thinking the leasing companies negotiating skills are so much better than mine that the deals are competitive enough for me to make a 'business case' for going down this route next time, versus buying outright*

* unless, of course, I just keep the old sh**ter going for another couple of years :-)

Thats how I always look at it. I never had a lease and doubt I ever will. Admittedly I drive a more modest car but I prefer the old fashioned way of saving up, buying it and it being yours, as opposed to borrowed or leased.

I guess this is for the people who want to look good in a nice car, but cant drive it too much anyway as 8k mileage is fairly low.

That makes absolutely no sense. A 'launch' requires acceleration which means as soon as the wheels start turninng weight transfers rearward, meaning from this moment traction on the front wheels is decreasing, and traction on the rear wheels is increasing. The laws of phyics do not pause for '5 yards or so'.

Actually yours is the silly statement ​as you've already been told I said performance cars not hot hatches. The reason hot hatches are FWD is because they are based on their modest less powerful everyday hatchback and the R&D costs to change it to RWD would be too great. So if they can create a 250+ BHP hot hatch while just about being able to get the power down. As soon as hatches or any car have over 300 BHP or actually (300 lb/ft torque) they need 4wd to get the power down. For example Golf R, new Focus RS, A45 AMG, S3, RS3 etc etc with the exception of the new type R they are all 300+ BHP and 4wd. Can you list how many FWD cars can do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds if they are so good at launching? You'll find plenty or RWD and 4WD cars that can. The performance cars that are based on RWD cars, BMW M2, M3, M4, C63 AMG, Lexus ISF, Jaguar XFR etc and they all do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds or nearly 4 seconds.
