    The price you qouted me is 'far beyond' our budget.

    Re: way beyond vs far beyond

    Way beyond is common slang. Not wrong, just causal.
    Far beyond would be more formal.
    Well beyond might even be better.

    Far beyond :formal.
    'Way beyond' implies it is even further 'beyond our budget' than 'well beyond'.
