I'll also most likely buy my '01 Avant when the lease is up, assuming
nothing blows up before then. I was kicking this idea around with the
sales guy from whom I bought the car and he said they often do the Audi
Assured 1-2 step for customers buying off lease. It works like this: at
the end of the lease, you turn the car in, the dealer then buys the car,
runs it through the certification and then sells it back to you.

The key is that they sell it back to you for your original lease buy-out,
plus somewhere around $2000 or so to cover the cost of the certification
and associated parts. You can look at this as the "cost" of the extra
warranty. Now, for this money you'll get quite a lot: they'll replace
brakes, tires, belts, etc., etc. to get the car up to Audi's standards.
You'll get two additional years and 50,000 more miles of Audi factory
coverage, too.

I'd suggest if you try going this route to at least make sure you get some
sort of written agreement about the details of the deal, though. An
unscrupulous dealer could theoretically take your car and sell it to
someone else...
