Thoughts and ???

Hey guys. Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm looking for a certified GTI. I was looking for a new Sport, but I think I waited too long. So I was wondering about this one.

https://www.lhmvw.com/certified/Volk...21c24bcfe0.htm

This one would have the VAQ diff wouldn't it? I'd like to hit some local track days and time attack days (very low key ones). I'm sure it has the larger brakes, but my buddy who recently bought a GTI thinks I should get the VAQ diff for sure.

Thoughts? I'd appreciate it. Just to make sure I'm not missing anything.

And yes, I'll make them lower that price.

I’m sure you can still find a new ‘17 sport on the lot, I personally wouldn’t want an Autobahn because sunroof issues are common.

I also don’t really care for leather, but that’s just a personal preference

Thanks guys. I appreciate that kind of info. Especially about the sunroof. This will be a third car since my f350 dually is a pain as a daily driver. The leather might be better for the kiddo, but I really do like the plaid.

There literally isn't a Sport in Colorado. I can always fly and drive, but it seems like they were cheaper in December, so that's kinda why I was thinking I missed out. I should probably keep this under $24,000.

It might be better to wait for a used Sport.

Thanks again guys. I appreciate it.

It has DCC though, which is nice and not found on the Sport.

There are some Sport version available in UT.

I would prefer a new one if i am planning to keep it for quite sometime (at least 5 years).

Thanks. I can't even get those people at Strong VW to answer a call or email. So frankly, they can suck it. I'll look at the other dealership.

Heading out to test drive the one I linked above. I'd think $22k would be a good price???

Well $22,500+$599+$27.20+tax (3.9%) is as low as the’ll go. So about $24k out the door.

Thought?

Thats bad customer care.

Based on your previous post looks like the final price is around $23,000 + TTL. I think $22,000 + TTL will be a good deal.

Good for you. I think you did good. You'll love the DCC.

It's a business negotiation. There's no room for emotion in a business negotiation. You want what you want; they want what they want. You might get a win/win, or you each might have to compromise.

But you weren't being an "ass" about the price, any more than they were. It's business. Pure and simple.

(It's when people allow emotion to take hold that they lose sight of getting what they want, and Vinny the white belt car salesman wins...)

It's just business, let them worry about making ends meet, that's their job not yours. If they can't make money they won't sell the car.

Congrats on the car, even better that it's local.

You know, sometimes it's about more than the pure "make money on the car".

God knows what their motivations are. If it makes business sense to sell you the car at whatever price, they will.

I'd take it for $10K off, happily, and not lose a wink of sleep over what they thought of me. If they let me have it, they achieved a business goal. I don't care what that is.
