End of Lease Options

Once your Audi lease is nearing its end, you may be curious about what options you have available to keep driving an Audi. Fortunately, Santa Monica Audi has a program designed specifically for drivers to exchange your current Audi for a new model before your lease concludes. Even if this date is still months or even further than a year away, Santa Monica Audi is here to help you plan ahead for the future. Speak with our Audi Lease Return Liaison to further discuss your options and get behind the wheel of a new Audi.

1. Purchase a New Audi

  

New Audi Vehicles

Santa Monica Audi is here to help you choose a new Audi from our extensive inventory. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to turn in your current lease and find your next Audi.

  

Lease Loyalty Incentives

Because you're an Audi driver, Audi would like to reward your loyalty with Audi special lease incentives for current owners or lessees. From bonus cash to special lease rates, Santa Monica Audi will make sure you get the best possible deal on a new Audi.

  

Payment Waivers

Even if you still have time remaining on your current lease, there are times where Santa Monica Audi can waive some of your remaining payments on your current Audi lease in order to get you into a new one sooner. Well maintained Audi models are in high demand and we're always searching for quality vehicles to fill our inventory.

  

Disposition Waiver

Your Disposition Fee is waived if within 90 days of turning in your Audi model you lease or purchase a new or Certified Pre-Owned Audi through Audi Financial Services. Another great reason to continue to enjoy driving an Audi vehicle.

2. Purchase Your Current Audi

Not ready to part ways? That's understandable. Santa Monica Audi is happy to assist you in the process of purchasing your Audi. We can also arrange financing and provide you with options for extending your warranty coverage as well. If you're interested in purchasing your Audi, please contact us for more information.

3. Return Your Audi

Return Checklist

You have the option to return your vehicle without purchasing or leasing a new one. There are a few steps you'll need to take to wrap up your lease.

  1. Review your vehicle's condition. You'll want to consult your "Wear and Use Guide" when reviewing your vehicle prior to scheduling your vehicle inspection.
  2. Schedule your vehicle inspection. During the inspection, an independent SGS inspection agent will evaluate your vehicle for any excess wear and use. Upon completion, you will receive an inspection condition report, which itemizes any excess wear. Any excess wear will be billed on your Turn In Settlement Invoice (unless you choose to repair the items prior to turn in). We highly recommend that you discuss the results with your Audi Lease Return Concierge in order to determine your best options.
  3. Turn in your vehicle to Santa Monica Audi.
    *Note: As outlined in your Lease Agreement, you are responsible for a disposition fee.

Vehicle Inspection

You can schedule an inspection appointment by visiting selfschedule.aiminspect.com or by calling the inspection company, Alliance Inspection Management (AiS), at (844) 889-8529. Inspections can be conducted at your home, office, or at the dealership for your convenience.

Inspection Checklist:

  1. Clean your vehicle inside and out.
  2. Make sure all items are present:
    • All keys
    • Owner Manuals and Maintenance Booklet
    • Headrests
    • Cargo Covers (if applicable)

Once your inspection and desired repairs are completed, turn in your vehicle at your Audi Dealership. Here's how:

  1. Contact Santa Monica Audi to set up a turn in appointment.
  2. At the Dealership, make sure to obtain a copy of your Vehicle Turn In Form for your records.
