GyroRon - On the topic of 335d and mileage - couple of thoughts....

The right foot and resulting tq may have a LITTLE to do with poor MPG's....just a theory:)

I checked my mileage after the recent enhancements on a mostly hwy trip - right at 40 for me.

It was hard to get this mileage though....when you have ~ 400 whp and 600 tq available in an instant...

Yeah, to be fair, the guy I spoke to didn't seem to own the car for any kind of reasons concerning good economy, I think he just liked how powerful the car is. Thanks for the spare tire btw!

If my sport wagon spare will fit I'll see what I can do

So just a little data for the Asheville area I spoke to a lady at Harmony Motors. She says they have a couple guys that are buyback specialists. And they've been doing buy backs for a few weeks. My docs were green checked on 10/27. And supposedly sent to the auditor on 11/05 for approval of my offer. Hurry up and wait the new VW slogan

Took maybe 15 minutes. No fuss, no muss. Very surprised it was that simple. And I got more $$ back than I expected. I must have calculated wrong.
Bonus... :D

Offer letter received 12/1 approved today 12/7. Soonest appointment available at Harmony in Asheville was 12/30. Hope to get a year end deal. Was originally not going to replace it but for the kind of work I do the wagon is perfect.. The Passat I am driving currently, not so much...

Just booked 6 appointments at Leith Cary. Booked 5 in late January and 1 for mid February. I am playing the mileage bracket game a bit and by delaying just 30-60 days the buyback difference was nearly $2k compared to the offer letters on this group of cars.

For anyone in or around Raleigh I have a car dolly I can loan you to transport your car to the dealer. I bought one just for this venture and it's available if needed. It is located in South Raleigh 401/70 split. PM me if interested.

I got all my green checkmarks on Nov 30, so ten business days is next Wednesday. Once I have the offer, I'll be looking at VW South Charlotte, but with four dealers to choose from, I guess I can hit which ever one fits my schedule.

Sorry, no spare that will fit the Jetta sedan. I do have a 15 inch tire that came off my daughter's corolla if anyone needs that.

I returned my TDI today at Flow in Greensboro. It took less than 10 minutes total. I received a paper receipt and an e-mail receipt (immediately). Process was easy and painless. I hope the EFT process goes as well. I feel for those of you still waiting for an offer. VW has really taken too long on many of those.

I just got my appointment at harmony in Asheville. January 10. Could be worse I guess. Really wanted to be done with this by New Years but what can you do.

Just a follow-up for anyone interested. I received the EFT sign-up from CHASE on Friday after 8pm (my turn-in appointment was the day before-Thursday) and the money showed up in my bank account this morning shortly before 8am. Fairly quick turnaround I'd say.

Was that the first available? It appears that my decision to get my inspection done was prescient since these incompetent morons aren't going to process me fast enough to avoid renewing my registration.

I'm debating what to do now. My offer is supposed to be here tomorrow as that's the end of whichever 10 day cycle I'm on. I know from other threads that I may not see the offer until sometime in mid to late Jan. My registration expired the end of November. The late fee for the registration are minimal but if we were to get in an accident, then there will be hell to pay. The other side of the arguement is that my wife only has a week of school left this year and she could start driving my JSW now.

The earliest appt. within 100 miles of Raleigh available to me was I believe maybe January 5th or the 7th. But I need to be able coordinate with my wife who is a teacher. So the earliest late afternoon appointment (5:30PM) that was in a reasonable driving distance was in Durham. I couldn't even book an appt. at my local dealership (Leith VW, Cary) until the 19th I believe.

Either way, we'll be making our way to Durham to turn the car in, then make our way back to Cary to purchase a 2017 Subaru Outback Limited 2.5 with Eyesight from Johnson Subaru. Will look just like this:

Nice Outback !

My wife is also turning her SW in for the Outback, just waiting for the offer, documents were accepted 10/28. We were thinking about going with the Alltrack but with the process being dragged out we have decided to give up on VW.

Hopefully we will get the offer by the time the end of the year specials for the 2017 Outback start ;-)

Turned my TDi in late this afternoon at South Charlotte VW. Process was simple, the gentleman doing the buy back was very nice, received a paper receipt and because of the forum I felt comfortable with the process. A car hauler was loading up with the TDi's turned in. My husband asked what they were doing with them all and he said VW had rented about 2,500 locations to store them.

Awesome blue MacBookemDano!

Wow a day and a half turn around from offer upload to scheduling appointment. VW must finally be getting their $hit in order.

Earliest appointment was not till mid-January. Multiple turn in days & times available at Flow in Greensboro.

Hello all,

Paperwork submitted on October 31st.
Received notification that my paperwork is acceptable on November 15th.
As of December 15th, still waiting for my offer letter.

I have Hendrick VW in Charlotte as my preferred location, but will likely do the return at Flow VW in Winston-Salem.

As VW says "You will get it soon". Many of us have been waiting with approved documents since the beginning of November. And have yet to receive a final offer.
According to VW my docs have been with "auditor" since 11/05/16. Good luck
