Two years already. Time flies. I'm glad he didn't have to see the unfolding of Dieselgate, as that probably would have crushed his spirit.

Very true all the way around. Most defiantly the best salesman I ever worked with.

RIP my friend...

Very sorry to hear about Chris!
1st reached out to him in early 2010 after reading about the TDI Cup Edition. A few other VW dealerships in NJ didn't even put in an effort to locate one, even though I've purchased multiple cars through 1 of them.

He didn't have what I wanted in stock but was able to get me exactly what I wanted. It took almost 2 months but I didn't mind the wait.
Most of our interactions were done via email and phone calls. When I took the drive to get the car, Chris was most knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with.
I remember spending some time talking to him and even kept in touch with him for a wile after I purchased my car.

I just happened to be considering one of these 2015 TDI's as my Cup Edition is going back next month.

RIP Chris, you'll be missed!

Just happened to stumble upon some old bookmarks and found one of his posts, and his user name said "R.I.P." -- then found this post.

Chris was a great guy, bought my 2013 Passat TDI 6-speed from him. Always thought I'd buy future TDIs from him but alas, both Chris and new TDIs are no more.

Right after I bought my Passat, I sent a co-worker to him to buy a new Touareg -- no one could even come close to his deal... wonderful VW salesman, no nonsense!

Thanks for the sweet deal on my Passat, Chris. And thanks for the Philly Pretzels!

Hope you're experiencing Fahrvergnügen up there ...
