How did I do?

Hey guys. New to this forum.

Just got rid of my 2011 A5. I needed something a little more cheaper and didn't want to sacrifice the ride quality. Boy am I happy!!

I picked up a used 2012 4 door AutoBahn DSG with 10,500k miles on the ODO for $25700 before TTL. The car is in amazing condition, looks brand new.

I couldn't find any Autobahns around so I have nothing to compare it to. How did I make out?

Thanks!

how did you do? how do we know? how much did you owe on the A5? i guess you broke even going to a cheaper car. were me, i would have kept the A5. thats a nice ride brah. and someone put 10k miles on a 2012 GTI? jesus, thats a lot of miles in a short time..

and the A5 ride quality is worlds better than the GTI.

I just had my 20k on my '12, so that's not a lot of miles IMO....don't forget you can get '12's in '11...but I got Sunroof and Convenience 4DR and you paid about 1,000 less than me, so you can decide if you got a good deal.

Yah I wanted to keep the A5 but, priorities took preference and I needed a lower monthly payment.

MoDat, did you finance through a VW dealer? Can anyone shed light on used auto rates they are getting through the dealers or otherwise?

I got my brand new 2013 4dr CW DSG with Navi + Sunroof for $28,805 pre TTL. I probably would have tried to get them lower, but you didn't do terrible.

Hey I am brand new to the forum, bought a 2013 GTI 4door Autobahn edition 6sp manual. My price before tax, tags, etc was $28,990. I love this car!! My other car is a 2002 Audi A6 2.7T. You did good as VW are pricey used. The ones I have seen were only about $1K or so cheaper than their new counterparts.
