udayg, $200 over invoice sounds great. I'm hoping to get my sedan somewhere in that range.
Stevens Creek seems like the typical car dealer. I'm kind of avoiding them. I haven't been to Capitol yet, but I didn't like what I heard over the phone when I called there. Good VW dealers in the bay area aren't easy to find.
DynoSpotRacing is a terrific shop, very able and honest. They're near Almaden and Alma. Though they specialize in mods and racing things, they do great work on regular cars, too. My Passat is one of the latter and they've solved nagging issues nobody else had a clue about. It goes through too much oil, but otherwise runs great at 181,000 miles. There's no way on earth I'd still have the car without them.

I've dealt with Jim Ellis for years now. Here's what they just sent me today on the 2010 Golf 2Dr 6Man I ordered. "Just a quick update. VW has reviewed and accepted our Sold Order Build, they should start production on your Golf in the next 7 - 14 days. "
I have a feeling dealers that say you can't place an order and that low numbers are coming are trying to make a quick sale. I'll keep the forum updated when the car arrives.

which Ellis are you dealing with, Atlanta or Marietta?

Atlanta, but Marietta actually offered another $150 off whatever my best deal was. For me, the drive wasn't worth it.

I am about to give up.
This is the car I want but I refuse to pay over MSRP. And now with so few available it's even harder. The VW dealers are the WORST.
Does anyone know if VW is planning to ship more of these at anytime soon?
Otherwise I'll pocket $7,000 and get a Hyudai Elantra Touring.

bingo, you might try working with a dealer anywhere else in USA. many might be willing to do a "courtesy delivery" to your local dealer. At MSRP.

Call Bridget at VW in Santa Monica for a fair deal. Expect MSRP.

Does this mean that if you do a "courtesy delivery" and you live in another state, you wouldn't have to pay shipping costs?

"Otherwise I'll pocket $7,000 and get a Hyundai Elantra Touring"
With that extra $7,000 you will also get a better warranty, a vehicle with a terrific reliability reputation, and no need to scrounge for service stations with ULSD diesel pumps.
There are some trade offs of course and I'm sure VW fanboys will be glad to point them out.
In our area a JettaTDI wagon is over $33.000 before taxes. A loaded Elantra Touring is $10,000 less.
Personally I think they are all too much money, as the last round of car company discounts seems to show that dealer "invoice" is a joke and more like what MSRP should be, for starters.
Don't get me started on the Stealerships that are tacking on another $2,000 over MSRP just because they can...see the extra "$2,000 side stickers" at the Great Falls Montana VW dealer.
