That's a tad high. You shouldn't be paying over $25k. Truecar for D.C. area has that configuration at $24,925. That would be absolute max I'd be willing to pay before any affinity discounts (such as USAA $500 off, etc).

Two previous posters on this page are saying they got theirs for $23.5k. Always remember that GTIs are built in mass quantities and VW dealers do want to move them.

Thanks for the response... I'll keep negotiating.

It also looks like those 2 posters picked up a GTI S not Sport. MSRP on the Sport is about $2500 more.

Totally missed the S instead of Sport. My bad. Yeah, the Sport is basically what I got in S trim (w/ LP and PP) before the Sport trim was introduced. I didn't get black mirrors or push button start, but I did get foglights.

Shoot for $25k or lower.

on a DSG Sport?? I thought the MT's went for 24.5+, DSGs 25.5+, with obvious outliers getting notably abnormally good deals like sub-24 for an MT and sub-25 for a DSG.

Idk, you obviously know your shit when it comes to buying cars so from your perspective it might seem "easy," or whatever, to get a better price... But I have no idea how you do it lol.

I paid 17k for a 2015 S model DSG w/ 17k miles on March 31st, and you paid 18k for "new" TDI less than a month later. I grill myself daily specifically because of the deal you got, and how much more utilitarian a TDI wagon would be in my life than a GTI...

TrueCar is $24,925 for DC on that car. DC area runs lower than the rest of the country due to the sheer volume of dealerships in the area (22 in a 50 mile radius). There's no magic involved. Just let them know you'll walk if you don't get what you want. In fact, don't even get that far. Do it all via email. That's way easier.

Can't make a deal with first dealer? Only 21 more to go. If you can't swing a great deal in DC you're just not trying:

Also, Golfwang, the TDI was a rare bird. There were only a limited quantity of the new old stock rereleased. I think the dealers were so sick of having them on the lot for a year and a half that they wanted them gone, and they failed to anticipate the pent up demand for them early in that brief sales period. VW was kicking in a $5k rebate (and 0% 72 months and 162,000 mile/11 year warranty) and the dealer I bought from was offering an additional $3k off sticker. Deal of a lifetime, IMHO, but not a normal deal at all.

I did swing $6,200 off my GTI too. That was a 2016 model year end deal. I chalk that one up to starting off with the GM of sales at the dealer I went to. Never got stuck in the typical back and forth with the frontline sales twats. lol

I picked up my Sport DSG last Wednesday for 28,600 out the door. This is in So Cal.

Can you let me know which dealer is it in SoCal? And do you have the price before all the fees and tax? Trying to find a decent deal on SE. Thanks!

I got mine from Parkway in Valencia. I can't remember exactly what the price was before all the fees. It was in the low 26k.

Hi everybody! First post. Central Jersey. I got my CGS GTI Sport DSG a month ago. Car price $26,150 incl. destination, with taxes and fees 28,650. 0.9% x 72 mo financing, and the dealer threw in Gap insurance.
I know, this is not as good as some people posted in DC area, but that was the best I could do locally.

Those people also aren't getting 0.9% for 72 months. Can't have your cake and eat it too. Interest on $26k loan of 0.9% vs 2.9% over 72 months is a good chunk of change. Nice job.

Thanks. Yes, I know about that, also the fineprint about "for local residents only" thing. No free lunch..
Forgot to add that the whole deal was negotiated online and over the phone, and the car was delivered to my house. The entire delivery process took about 30 min, instead of many exhausting hours at the dealership.

I just got offered $25,705 +$80 doc fee and tax (I'm registering the car afterwards in another state, as I'm military) on a base MT SE . Only catch is I have to finance at the "standard rate" and can't pay off the loan for 4 months.

Am I wrong in thinking this is a great deal, especially in the SF Bay area?

Also, I haven't brought the Partner program up to the dealer at all yet, so that offer is without it. Is there any reason at all that I can't surprise them with it once I go to sign the paperwork and get another $500 off?

Thanks

You can do that, BUT I'd do it before they actually type up the paperwork.
Mention it last minute, but not after they type it

That'd be an inconvenience for both of you then (you wait longer & they have to redo it all)

That's a good deal IMO for Cali. The quote I got from dealerships in LA so far (haven't try hard yet) is $30,500 for SE DSG before fees and TTL.
