Hi, I'm new to the forums and have a few questions regarding the purchase of a GTI. Any help would be greatly appreciated! First do you think 27000k is a good price for 07 GTI BM 6 speed manual, pkg. 2 Nav, 18 huffs, and ground effects kit? Next, do you think 6.7 apr is high for 72 mths financing? Finally, will the guitar adapter work as an ipod adapter? I asked salesman seemed clueless! Also do you receive a fast ACTION FIGURE with an 07? As mentioned before salesman seems clueless! Thanks in advance!!

6.7 apr isn't bad right now, especially with interest rates where they are currently. Don't know about the price. I just got mine this weekend, but I don't have Nav or the manual trans. About the iPod, you can go to radio shack or best buy and get a cord for about ten bucks and plug it into the Aux jack in the glove box. The sound quality is okay, although if you get the adapter kit through the dealer ($300), the display will correspond with your iPods. Other than that it's up to you. Don't know anything about getting a "Fast" action figure though...hope this helps.

Are you looking at 2 or 4 door? In any case, you can get a good idea of what everyone else in the country is paying if you go to Edmonds and build your car with all your options. It will give you the TMV for your car. This will help you to negotiate a good price with your dealer, too.

Good Luck!

I paid $23,975 for a red DSG with 18'' H wheels and the sat radio/sunroof (Pkg. #1). If you're in SoCal too, the best way to get the price down is to have other dealers try to beat each other (it works because there's so many). Stick to your guns and don't settle for anything you don't want. You may have to wait awhile but it's worth getting what you want in the end.

I paid 28,000 for an 07 2 door manual trans, pkg 2 with nav and huffs, all season mats and gorilla trunk thing. That was 700 less than msrp. I thought I got a good deal but it seems like other people are getting more off msrp. The dealership did give me 800 more on my trade in than the book said so that was good. All in all, I am still very happy with my purchase. I had a deposit on a mazdaspeed3 for 2 months before purchasing my fast. I am so glad that I didnt go with the speed3. The gti may not be as fast stock, but it is so refined and just plain nicer than the speed3.

Don't worry about what you paid. You have your car, and you are happy with it. The intent of this topic was to provide buyers leverage with dealers by infoming them of what others buyers were giving for their cars. It has become a posting of one up's, second guessing, and some fairly large tall tales.

Enjoy your ride.

I couldn't agree more. Forget about what you paid and enjoy the ride.

However, for those still looking, I would recommend a couple of things. First, go to Consumer Reports or any other service that can provide you with dealer cost (as opposed to invoice and/or msrp). For $12, CR gives you the dealer cost for the vehicle (which is the "invoice price" less any dealer hold back money (a portion of the "invoice price" that the dealer doesn't have to pay). They also give you the dealer cost for the options and packages, which is less than the sticker price for each option and can add up to a lot of money depending on what you get. They also (for a 30 day period) will give you any national and regional incentives (rebates, etc.) that apply to a particular vehicle. And, they provide you with some helpful strategies for negotiating the best deal. Again, well worth the 12 bucks.

There may be better ways to get the deal, but this worked pretty well for me and left me feeling like I got my car for a fair price.

As for financing, while its obviously only an option for home owners, home equity is a great way to go if they're not offering ridiculously low rates. You'll get very good rates and the interest is tax deductable.
