Not only did I make out, but I got a deal. The original price was $15,8 and I paid $10,7+ TTL.

I see low mileage 11's all over for $10k and under. Your car probably belonged to some grandma who just used it to get to the grocery store. Most of the time it sat around gathering cobwebs and condensation. That's the worst kind of use for a tdi. Call911's car undoubtedly saw lots of highway miles, which is what they like. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if your engine has twice the wear that his does.

Just as a general tip, people don't like to be told that they overpaid. It's poor form. He already commented that he probably could have got a better deal if he had waited a bit longer. But nobody knew what was going to happen, and a lot of members here picked up mk7's before the prices started to decline.
