I've owned a few GTI's and a Golf R. One of my sons is currently driving a MK6 GTI.

I'm in the market to buy another GTI for my other son.

First off, the used car prices are insane. I'm really annoyed at how high they are. Both cars are at non VW dealers. There may be a little room in the price, but dealer aren't budging much. For comparison, a based Jetta S new was $20,500 with no discounts being offered. Grrr.

Here is what I'm looking at:

2016 GTI SE grey on black leather 6mt. 36k miles, DCC, no blind spot, xenon's, 2 owners with plenty of service history. No accidents - $23,250.
2017 GTI Autobahn - grey on black 6 mt. 56k miles, 1 owner and limited service records on carfax. No accidents - $22,750.

I'm leaning toward the 2017 to get the MK7.5 plus the other features. The dealer fees are slightly lower too.

I welcome some input for you experts.

2017 is a MK7. You’d be crazy to go for the Autobahn w/ nearly double miles for $500 more, esp since the 2016 has DCC. That’s the best package imo, SE fully loaded. AB just adds dual zone climate and nav.

Thanks. I’m sure he’ll be thrilled. My other son has a 2013 MK5 Wolfsburg. For comparison, we got that when it was 3 years old and 17k miles for only $14.5k. Crazy used car prices!

Tysons Corner.. they beat Carmax by $500 and Vroom by $250.. figured i may have been able to get another grand by waiting on a private party but this was so easy
