Tell him to shove-it M8 and go buy a newby.Originally posted by fartlek55@Apr 6 2006, 11:52 PM
I am looking at a 2006 A3 with 5700 miles on it. The dealer wants to charge me basically the invoice price on a brand-new A3. He said he will go down $500. Are the margins that thin on the A3s, or am I being had?
Thanks for your input!!
I don't think it’s entirely true and to some extent it depends upon the “car” you talking about. I’m in the UK too and I’ve seen the several Audi approved used car are being sold at £800 or £1000 less than the original price. When I went to buy my car, December last year, I found one – kinda 8 months old with 3000k on the clock (that was a x-demo one)– and they offered only £800 less. The dealer itself advised me to get a new one rather buy a used one paying almost the same price. I’ve seen Honda to the same type of things. One of my friends who works for car industry for ages told me, few manufacturers like BMW, Audi, Honda, they produce comparatively less cars, increase the waiting time on purpose, never go down a certain limit on price negotiation and thus create a artificial demand to keep the resale value high.Originally posted by t-sport@Apr 9 2006, 05:38 PM
Over here in uk once a new car has left the forecourt it loses as much as £3000($4500) off the list price.
Hummm….I didn’t know that one can still order a S3.Unless its a S3 which i can understand if theres a waiting list due to demand

Again, I think, you definitely meant to say “RS4”. As far as I’m aware of, 3 series don’t have any “S” any more other than S-Line pack. I don't even find any thing like that in the Audi UK site. I may worng though.....Originally posted by t-sport@May 30 2006, 12:12 AM
