I would take option A. Biggest reason; peace of mind. 18k/mi means that you might have some manufactures warranty left, depending on original sale date. If not you still have the CPO warranty to fall back on. My last VW was a CPO something broke, $50 bucks. Only happened once, but it was better than paying the 250-300 for the job that it needed. Plus having a older car with lower miles can help in the long run and value. Plus it's 11k/mi less.

I suggest you to go for Certified 2012. Black 4 door, DSG, LED lights & sunroof, 18k miles..

Good luck..!!

I went with the Certified black 4 door. So far so good. Got em down a little on price but the 4 door was definitely more my speed. The 2 door's leather wasn't in great shape and the CPO kinda sealed the deal.

Appreciate all your input. Thanks for the help!

Back in 2011, when I purchased my 2012 I was convinced that dealers did not order higher trims with the 6-Speed gearbox! I was literally forced into a DSG if I wanted one off the lot with the options I wanted.

I'm not at all dissatisfied with the DSG either, even after 4 years ~50k on the clock.

I see autobahn manuals around Philly all the time. There are 3 on Christensen street alone.
