    Need some help, buying a new GTI

    Hey all, been a loooooooong time since I've been around. Some may still remember me. I'm thinking this new purchase will bring me around a bit more again though.

    Anywho... Been strugling with what to do about a new car. I have NEVER owned a car, and went to the dealership last week to find out what a 2011 GTI would cost me.

    Total purchase price (including fees, taxes, etc) they gave me for a 2011 GTI 5dr 6speed w/sunroof was 36722. Good deal, or can I haggle some more? Becaue there is NOTHING nearby, this would be a factory order and I was told it would take 2-3 months. Discuss. Thanks.

    You should definitely talk to Mike Benford (Brandford VW). He's a sponsor here. See if he can work a better deal for you.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Harry. I just shot him an email. I don't mind waiting for the right deal, but this is definitely the car I want sitting in my driveway .

    Wellllllllllll... I went out to the dealer today to run some numbers again. While there, I noticed a 2010 CW GTI. Turns out, it's got what I want and then some. I left, and then decided to go back just to do a credit app. Before I left the second time, I asked to sit in the car again. About 10 minutes after I finished the app, while sitting in the car (playing with stuff), I got told my app was approved.

    Sooooo I'm currently the new owner of a CW GTI! The car is 'sold'. Just have to move some funds around and I should be good to go! It all just felt like it was supposed to happen, y'know? I will definitely keep everyone posted on the details and post pics if/when I pick it up.

    They are sexy, (especially on a CW) but cost way too much.

    Been a while since I've seen that name around.

    How's that old PB account doing? I haven't been there in years.

    I'm gonna leave the wheels for another year . Gonna chip and lower in the spring. Want the lip as well, but I think the other two will pretty much kill the mod budget for the year, lol.

    Wheels might have to wait since the APR K04 kit is calling me. Fuck, who am I kidding. I'll probably get both.
