Double check your paperwork, cause looking at the historical records for San Francisco for the last year you should never have paid more than 9.5% in sales tax.

If you did, they owe you some money!

damn I'm actually in process of buying a GTI from Lindsay in Sterling VA.

Got a quote for a 12 2 DR DSG GTI Sunroof and Nav including the (mats lol) for $27,775 which includes destination....

They quoted me $29,999 for a 12 2 DR DSG Autobahn including destination

Good deal??

It really depends on all the dealers in your area, or how far you are willing to go.

It's really hard for people to say that are not in your area. Here in the SF Bay area that deal isn't so hot @ $27,775 but may be the best deal within 500 miles of you. YOU gotta do all the legwork on the internet and work with the fleet managers before you pull the trigger if you really want to be sure.

Just for reference, I got my 2011 2 door 6 speed Sunroof+NAV+mats for just under $25k including destination (tax & registration not included). I could have gotten $3k off MSRP on a 2012, but they only had colors I didn't want, or the Autobahn+DSG and I wasn't looking for leather. Only 2 dealers within 100 miles were willing to do that pricing though, most were asking a lot more, some over MSRP.

Shop everyone in your area as far as you're willing to go and do your homework!

Agreed! Seems like there are a lot of people giving the OP flack when he is indeed paying $30K for a car, a set of monster mats would not break them.

Yep. 148,000 USD.

Sure you could do that.. R8 is at least half a million and GTRs are around 300,000. My figures might be off a bit, but its one of the most expensive to own a car in the world.

+1 on your 'deal' not being a deal

+1 on everyone questioning your negotiating skills (walking away on this haggle-point that far down-stream is kinda pissy)

One is in your favor, one is kinda not. They're probably related.

Look, there are the interwebs. 1 hour research will give you inventory/prices on every model on every patch of asphalt within a 3 hour drive. That kind of negotiating leverage is nothing to sneeze at. Get informed, get financing offers from your bank/credit union, and get serious. These guys are working for a living and you're wasting their time.

I've got some friends in the biz; apparently, every month there is that customer who bitches and moans and walks back and tangos, over every single option and minutiae, wasting full business days of these people's time... only to get rejected at the eleventh hour, after the sales staff slaves the details, because the 'customer' doesn't qualify for financing.

Despite losing a sale and jeopardizing their monthly numbers, the sales staff is elated. Why? Schadenfreude.

Don't be that dude. Do your homework, tell them what you want, negotiate, whatever, but don't be that dude.

Yup. As GTI's are very compact, it is very easy to squeeze into small parking spots. Gas mileage is pretty efficient when driving around the city.
