Hey cocoseng, was the price of $26,741 out the door? or was that before taxes? What part of the country do you live in?
I live in Los Angeles and test drove the EXACT same car you describe in your post
2008 Volkswagen GTI (United Gray)
4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
except that it has 17" denver alloy wheels
They gave me an MSRP of $27,965 and out the door price of $30,761.
Anyone else think that's too high?
I'm looking for any input. Thanks.

I don't know. I negotiated the price based on what it would be out the door. The sticker price said ~$26,100. I was able to get it at $26,800 OTD after shopping around 4 different dealerships.
#180 of 332 1985 GTI Oil Filter Housing Leak
Jan 09, 2008 (9:29 am)
The other day I started my old rust bucket up after two weeks of relatively cold weather and oil started pumping out of the top of the oil filter housing immediately. And heavily. My question is: What's the problem and how do I fix it? I was about to just go buy an oil filter and try replacing that, but I don't really mind putting in a whole new housing if needed and only want to got to the autoshop once (I'm on foot). I included a photo of my filter and where the oil is coming from. Thanks in advance.

On Wednesday I purchased a Tornado Red 2008 GTI 2-door with a 6 speed manual off the lot and 32 miles on the odometer. It came loaded with 18" Hufeisen alloy wheels w/all-seasons, sunroof, premium audio w/ Sirius, and an iPod adapter. No Monster mats or Gorilla gear, unfortunately - I made a mistake of letting them take it off to achieve my desired price. I might buy those from the dealer at the invoice price of $145 later on, though.
I negotiated only on out the door prices. The dealer (Lindsay VW in Sterling, VA - great experience with Alfonso Monteverde) originally wanted $26,500 out the door. I managed to bring it down to $25,250 OTD. I financed it at 4.9% for 60 months via VW financing. The actual price of the car came out to be $23,482, which seemed to be a good deal. I live in Maryland so figure 6% in sales tax plus a few hundred in tags and title, one of which should be refunded since I turned in plates that weren't even a year old. The MSRP on the car was $25,504.
I was still charged $349 for a "documentation fee" and a few other miscellaneous, unnecessary charges, but the dealer didn't want to budge on them and I already thought I was getting a good deal. Had I tried a tad harder, I probably could have gotten the car for $25,000 OTD like I originally wanted to, but an extra $250 seemed like a fair compromise (at the time).
Too bad it was broken into and I had some stuff stolen out of it not even 8 hours after I drove it off the lot, but the repairs to bring it back to good as new will be done by this afternoon. Oh well, I still absolutely love the car and I guess that's all that matters.

I am trying to get a new GTI with
Navigatoin w/ iPod adapter
How much OTD price seems reasonable? (no loan, no trade) The invoice is about $28,000.
#183 of 332 GTI / 4Dr / 6 Sp Manual / Autobahn Pkg - Is the Price Right?

I was quoted $25,709 + TTL for the following --
GTI / 4Dr / 6 Sp Manual / Autobahn Pkg
Does that seem right? Does anyone think i can negotiate better?
