Finally, was there a trade involved?
What doesn't add up? IT his otd price too high?

Purchased GTI sport on Friday. MSRP $30,315 for $24,000 + TTL and a $150 doc fee. Price includes $1000 loyalty and $500 partner program. Was pretty happy getting 20% off retail.

Bought a 2017 Sport with DSG two weeks ago for $24,499 including just the $500 Partners discount. With the crazy 9.75% sales tax in NorCal, total came out to around $27,500 including TTL. Seems like a pretty decent deal, love the car!

Congrats! She's a beauty, good deal, and nice choice of color. Curious, did the incoming 2018s come into play when you negotiated? It's surely on their minds in terms of moving 2017 inventory, right?

Figure you were replying to somebody else since I didn't mention color

I did ask a couple of dealers about 2018 models and how that factors into pricing for the outgoing. They weren't too forthcoming but one dealer said that they don't know when they'll actually get the new models in the lot and VW notifies them just a month or so in advance. Seemed like BS to me but what do I know. Anyway, I agree with you, they must be willing to negotiate on the price to meet quotas and what not. I've been getting a lot of calls from other dealerships around the area about discounts they're running. If anybody is in the market, end of May would probably be a good time to buy.

There is no Sport model for 2018 so new models hitting the dealerships probably don't play much of a role in pricing for that particular 2017 trim. If anything the Sport models will rise in price near the end of 2017 production due to their one year run. I'm holding out for the 2018 for the SE since that trim should decline in price without leather, Fender and sunroof standard. Hopefully they will allow sunroof as the only option. That will be equal to the Sport w/sunroof. For those of us that desire the sunroof it's a win win.

(Yes, and sorry; had thought that pic was of your car) Regardless of if 2018's affected pricing, you got a competitive deal for the Sport trim. Enjoy the new ride buzz.

In the DC area dealers too are not very forthcoming about 2018, understandably I suppose.

2017 GTI SE DSG

Also, my sales guy Steven Tyler (not that Steven Tyler) even asked if I wanted the front plate drilled and made doubly sure none of the porters touched the front bumper and directed me to USMillWorks for the tow plate. And I got the color I wanted (Tornado Red).

Only condition is I finance through them, which is no big deal since I could've paid the difference in cash and will pay off the note by late Spring.
I got quoted $28.000 OTD at fairfax vw for GTI SE DSG. Do you think i can go lower?

OTD?? Wish I could've gotten a price like that in so cal! Also...you realize you're getting an even better price than him because you have DSG

2017 GTI SE, DSG, Pure White, never test driven. Southern California. May 19.
$31,500 out the door with $11,500 down and $500 Partner Program discount.
$368.85 / month, 60 payments with a 3.99% simple interest, no prepayment penalty loan.


I used the VW website to find in-transit vehicles on the way to the dealer, so not test driven.
I called the dealers to get a sales contact to work with and emailed my offer to them.
The first salesman to call me with a match got the deal.
I made sure I had a firm price by having them confirm the acceptance of my offer by email.


MSRP $33,450 included Monster Mats, Splash Guards, Luggage Net, Roadside Assistance Kit.

Cash Price $28,850, $4,650 off sticker which includes $500 Partner Program discount. (Note: So Cal region dealers pay a higher price adjustment than East Coast)

(Price on contract was $27,850 with $995 dealer BS add-ons. See below)

$31,500 out the door, including the $2,242 (8.75%) sales tax.

Financed $20,000 @ 3.99%, $11,500 down.

The higher interest got me a lower price because the dealer gets a commission based on a percentage of the loan.
Doesn't matter to me because I'm paying it off early.



Tricks the dealer tried to pull:

Gap insurance. Why the hell should I pay $650 for gap insurance when I put down $11,500. I called them on it, and they took it off.

BS dealer add-ons:
$399 ShadowMark Anti-Theft Labeling (Useless, does not lower car insurance, and the window stickers get removed to tint windows)
$399 Door edge and door handle scratch guard. (Dealer installed, maybe worth $50)
$197 1yr nitrofill free nitrogen tire fill. (For that I can buy a fill tank kit that would last the life of the car.)

I did not pay for the add-ons.
The price for the car was lowered to $27, 850 to match my offer.



All in all a very pleasant experience once we all knew I wasn't falling for gap insurance.
I probably could have squeezed out another $500-$700 off the price, but I paid a bit more for a car that hadn't been test driven.

Moral of the story.... Research and arrive at the price you're willing to pay BEFORE you shop.

Do the math... know these three numbers: out the door price, down payment and monthly payment.
Anything they try to slip by changes these numbers, so you'll know.

Confirm your offer by email on a yes or no basis BEFORE you go .

They really resist giving a written (emailed) price knowing you'll take it to other dealers to beat it.

Doc fee: $172.15
Tax: $2,457.18 (Illinois)
