You can now get a new R32 at invoice price (about $2,000 off MSRP). 50% of Volkswagen dealers in southern California are offering invoice price to me. The only way to get it is to call every dealerships.
#16 of 42 08 R32 Purchase
Oct 06, 2008 (10:02 am)
I am thinking of snatching up one of the few (or should I say, many) R32s still remaining on dealers lots. When I looked up the incentives for this car on edmunds it said there was $2000 in rebate and $2000 in dealer cash; it does not say that this money can not be combined. Should I basically be shooting for invoice minus $4000 as my target price? I have one dealer in my area who has two R32s that have been there for almost a year and I know they would love to unload them at almost any cost....

Alright so, heres the deal...
I had an AWESOME bmw x5, 4.4i, sport package, x-drive, loved it.
It got totaled.
SO... while i had the x5 i got a 335 rental and LOVED IT, so i was looking at used 330xi's , 06 and above, to replace the x5 just because i love the way they drive, awesome car, plus the 20/30 is a nice change from my x5s 16/22.
I also am intrigued by the 2008 r32's, and used theyre about the same for a lot less milage and more warranty. updated...i just drove one today, and it is AWESOME. totally unexpected, its actually more fun than the 3 series, and im a HUGE bmw fan so thats saying a lot. i even went to the bmw driving school, i think theyre the benchmark. that car was GOOD. so now im thorougly confused...
I drove an a4, it was a 06 2.0t, and was really unimpressed (we have a q7 and it did not hold up to the standard set by the q), so im thinking maybe an 05 s4 would be a nice choice and would drive differently, but again, the gas milage... updated again...i drove the s4 today too, and it was FASTTTT, just pulled, the kind of power im used to from my x5, or, past x5... But it drove great, not as tight as the r32 or 3 series, but it pulled for sure. plus, the quattro is always awesome.
AND, the subaru sounds like an all-around good buy, but i dont know if i can see myself actually getting one. (and possibly, i could look at fx's again, i looked at em when i got my x5, but i kinda wanted to move away from the suv thing, so if i got another one its prob be an x5)
if anyone could give my any advice or insight or opinion ill take anything i can get!! thank you guys so much!! please help i cant decide!! ive only driven the 330i, and so far ive set that as a benchmark for anything else i drive...
Thanks for the help!!!!

I ended up pulling the trigger today on a new 08 R32. I paid $29,500 with taxes (3% or $885), tags & fees (total $350), the total was $30,735. I put down $6,000 and financed $24,735 thru VW 2.9% for 60 months. Monthly payment of $443.35. I'm picking it up on Tues 10/21.

Well, it was just a matter of waiting long enough. I first test drove this car back in January and have tried to be patient. It has definitely worked in my favor. The dealers will do whatever it takes to unload the remainder of these cars by year end. I guess it was the DSG that scared the "purists" off, but I love the transmission and can't wait to pick up my car. And no, the MSRP was $33,630 (mine was a non-navi car since the nav in this car sucks....). It ended up being about $2500 under invoice PLUS the 2.9% financing....which took the typical "leave the dealership and then they call you back the next morning" move.
tuesday can't come fast enough....

If I'm reading the Edmunds incentives page correctly, it looks like there's a $2000 rebate, plus $2000 manufacturer to dealer incentive, plus the low finance rate. Are you reading this the same way? That could add up to some killer savings.

That is the way I read it; however, according to my local dealer, not all dealerships get the manufacturer to dealer . So, I was very happy to get the car at $2500 under invoice plus the 2.9%. But, I'm sure if you found a dealership with a few left (my dealer ended up having to bring one in from about 150 miles away) and you haggled them pretty hard, you might be able to get the car for somewhere between $28K - $29K. I paid $29.5. Either way, its much better than the poor souls that paid MSRP or higher back at the end of 07 and beginning of 08.
I picked mine up last night....absolutely amazing car. Perfect combo of speed, luxury & handling. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think and, if you buy one, what you ended up paying.
