They have the new car warranty. What if something else pops up related to the fix?

We may pull the trigger on this.
It is a very nice car indeed, just one thing to consider - depreciation. If you are able to swallow that bitter pill, then nothing better.
The dieselgate has been driving the prices of the new and used TDIs but this may not last longer as KBBs and NADAs of the world will reflect the real world pricing when more and more TDIs start hitting the market.

Yeah I figure you need to keep these purchases especially with the 2 year loss, it will take a huge hit.
Good news is one of our vehicles is on year 9 and we would have kept the VW TDI.
Iíd love to get 5% more but looks like itís not gonna happen. I feel like these guys will pull the cars before marking down 35% or more.

Personally, I would not have made a deal for just 20% discount. It is just not enough.
Though I'm not a huge diesel enthusiast, I do like them but I just don't understand the premium for saving gas and a higher torque. If you haven't tried, try the gasoline 3.0 supercharged A7. It will change your perception.
Some manufacturers are already proving 20% discount on their current year inventory (Infinity, Acura to be specific though they are not inthe same range as BMW and Audi)

Appreciate the feedback, no paper signed yet. Our city happens to be one of Audi’s top markets so this dealer may not budge. The dealership was buzzing yesterday all kinds of folks driving and buying cars.
I do agree I see automakers needing to markdown or incentivize prices in the coming months for sales , who knows.

I also don’t think if we over pay by a few $k it’s the end of the world if it’s the car we want.

Done deal got 25% off , there was some sun damage (dash texture slightly off in a spot, seat color if you look very close front pax seat)we will have to live with but knocked off another 5%.

Verified emissions extended warranty is in play.

Bottom line is you got a great "new" car at a good price. Having owned 2 C7 platform cars, I would have recommended the A8L over the A7 but the A7 is clearly more sporty looking. Having driven a 3.0 liter TDI car for over 25,000 miles now, I can truly say it is a great powerplant and gets great mileage.

Good luck with it. I also recommend you get Audicare.

Prestige , Sport package, Black optics 20” wheels etc , Driving Assistance Package , Black Headliner . Bose , led , I think that’s it.

Some cosmetic stuff promised to be taken care of and replaced soon. The car at night with the lighting was a nice surprise.

I think that’s it $60k ... before TTL. New car financing which the banks won’t do on 2016 also. 2.9 % 66 mos

Warranty and other stuff is pretty nice.

MSRP $79,995

It’s the wife’s driver, We will be selling back the Passat soon should net $25-26k, being loyal to VW . I think all in all good deal for us we get a nice luxury car without he price tag and buy back bonus.

Congratulations on the new ride. A7 has one of those timeless design which will not get old anytime soon.
