Newbie Question

OK, so I am looking at getting an 05 A4 from a dealer just 4 miles from me, its been sitting on their lot for a few months now, and they are looking to unload it. It is black with the 18" rims. I got an email last night with their "best" price and wanted to know if I should try to bargain lower or take the offer and run.

Their quote?

$34,790.00 MSRP
$29,404.73 Sale price after dealer cash (includes freight)
Plus taxes, tags & $195 processing fee.

Thoughts?

Pics below:

I havent had a V8 since my vette from 2003, have been driving a cavalier around to save gas and it sucks! I mostly miss my 98 camaro which ran 12.9 with a converter and exhaust. Color dont really matter to me, but that LS2 and the mods available for these cars is what excites me the most.

OK, going by on saturday to see if they can work with me. Would go tonight but the salesman I have been talking to online wont be back in til Saturday.

Just didnt want to get ripped off if there are others who have paid less.

What really gets me is when I was looking at the mustang GT, my insurance was going to go up $140 per month !!!! Whereas with the GTO, it will only increase $12. Talk about an incentive!!

I've driven both the stang and GTO.

For styling - get the stang.

For power, driving performance, build quality, and the sleeper factor, get the GTO.

The only thing I don't like about your deal is the A4. Does that price include the Gas Guzzler tax?

Yes it does, what it does not include is tax, tags, and $195 processing fee.

I have driven 15 cars in my day (im 32) and half were manual, half were auto, and since im a hard driver but also a cruiser, I prefer a high hp V8 auto over a manual anyday! :-D

thanks for the welcome EEZ GOAT, hopefully on monday, I will be posting pics of my new ride !!!!
