New to Audi world

Hey guys, new here and new to audi!!

We're living in germany I'm looking into getting the 2017 or 2018 q3 premium plus before we head back to the state. ...since my husband is in the military I thought we can get a better discount here.

So I got some quote on the premium plus 2017 with some options added came to 39k out the door.

2018 premium plus with sport pkg is 42k

I'm I getting the the discount being here in Germany and in the military? Or is it more than what everyone else is paying?

What is everyone paying for their q3 back in the states?

I read someone posted they walk out 41k on the prestig and that's included sales tax. But since we're in the military we're excluded from sales tax....

Welcome to the forum! In the summer of 2016 I bought a 2017 Q3 Prestige model with sport package and HomeLink for $41K+. The sticker price was $44k+.

I think the 2017 Q3 is going for a bit less than "invoice" price here in the US right now, about 8-9% below MSRP, as they clear inventory before the 2018 models start appearing. At least that's the sort of price we saw estimated on edmunds.com and kbb.com and also about what we got for our Q3 premium quattro in Los Angeles.

Yes, the 2017 model probably has bigger a discount now. I was giving an example of buying the 2017 model in 2016 which is similar to Bebexiu's one option of buying a 2018 model in 2017. I was also giving a price for prestige. Premium plus with sport package for $42k seems like a lot since you can get a prestige model with sport package and HomeLink for the same price here in the US. There will be shipping cost and waiting time to ship the vehicle from Europe to the US. But you can get the European options like folding MMI, amber turn signals, etc. if you buy from Europe and if you really like these options which are not available in the US.

First, Welcome to the forum - hope you find us an interesting bunch and come back often. Second with respect to rgobantesdc's comment : ...actually you CAN'T get those options in the EU if you're planning on bringing the car here - Audi will simply NOT allow you to. If the car is built for the EU and you try to import it you'll have to revert to the US spec - simple as that. Sounds like the price is in line with us except for taxes, but beware : while you are exempt for them in Germany, as soon as you register the car in ANY state, you'll have to pay THAT state's sales (and property if it has one) taxes ...

Hello Roger. How would Audi know you are shipping the vehicle after purchase, especially after you use it for a bit? I imagine they are not connected with every shipping company. I was actually more concerned about Germany standards being in line with US standards (if adjustments need to be made to the vehicle).

Well, as I said - you COULD buy an EU-spec vehicle, get every goodie that any German could, and never tell whoever you bought it from what you intend to do with it. BUT, when you go to ship it here (US) - when it arrives and you try to clear customs with it, THAT's when the $hit storm begins. I know, I've imported more than a dozen cars, not lately, but I know the drill.

Also know that things like the frequency of HomeLink, Advanced Key and the like are different in the EU than the US, so between that and the EPA, NHTSA and DOT, you'll have your hands full of reasons why this is NOT a very good idea. Not to mention that you'll pay an additional 19% MwSt (in Germany, similar for other EU countries) VAT, that while you can apply for a refund for IF you export within 90 days, you must pay as you purchase. This is usually waived if you buy thru an EU delivery program, along with your temporary tourist tag (limit of 90 days) and temporary (also limit of 90 days) insurances - on your US-spec car.

Lastly, IF you still buy a US-spec car and intend to drive it in the EU, at least in Germany, you will HAVE to have certain things (such as the tail lamps and a few other bits, cat, etc.) replaced on your car temporarily to meet the TüV, while the car is being driven in the EU. These are also usually taken care of by the car company under its EU delivery program...and you won't be able to say, 'hey, please just leave those amber tail lamps on for me.'

Thanks for the detailed response Roger. I wonder if these rules apply to diplomatic missions or military. I did not have to change my car specs when I was posted overseas but maybe its the country I went to. However, my friends have never mentioned about making any changes to their US bought vehicles when they were/are posted in different European countries.

When you say "US bought" I presume you mean bought in the US and then taken to another country. It DOES depend on the country - AND the length of time you expect that vehicle to be there. For example, in the Netherlands, you can bring your box stock US car there without ANY mods for up to 6 months, but NOT even for a day in Germany. You cannot bring a US bought vehicle to Chile under any circumstances unless it's 25 years old or more, but you CAN bring them Peru for a mere 28% tax. I know of a few more, but you get my drift ...

Oh, and just about anywhere in the ME, you can bring whatever you want for whenever you want and quadruple (or much more) your money VERY quickly -
