ok here it is, I had 4 dealers I was working with, first to see right off who would give me the best price, also i mentioned i did research on Edmunds and know what they are selling for. I also did NOT state i was leasing at first but then later told them, but not much for prices changed. I started at one dealer he said price was for 428. month 0 down and 12K. I snickered, and said thank you and bye.
so now I had 3 others to go with. one my wife just hated the sales man he was low but very arrogant, I have lowest prices and now one can beat me. then said are you gonna buy this car or not, so later I said, "NOT"
now we have 2 dealers, one my wife really liked the salespersonlady, oh how she seemed so caring for our needs, I told my wife dont be suckered inn she is still a sales person. while my wife was working with her i had a side deal with the last dealer, who right off the bat gave me a great deal no negotiating.
My wife said that the person made her lowest offer and the next day i said to her how about goinh ten dollars cheaper on the monthly payments and go into holdback to make it happen she said the typical ill get back to you, and guess what she went 10 less, I said to my wife if she already said it was lowest she could go then why and how did I get ten dollars cheaper??? So the other dealer was already 15 less than her and I said we will go with you if you also throw in rubber mats for winter and rain FOR FREE!!! no added price since i asked him for all the numbers and he gave them all to me before i asked for free mats.
So here is the deal i worked out.
I got a 2008 KOMFORT Passat (NOT A BASE MODEL) fully loaded of MSRP 28,854. dealer invoice 24,612. purchase price of car for me 23,012. and what ever he did the payments are 266.00 with 10K per year, (that is all we need ) we have a second car. the only thing I am sure they got me on was a doc fee for 299.00 was prebuuit in the lease contract. I am sure and know they made out also but as long as my payments are where i want them I am happy, and my wife is also, Now we are going from a 2004 leased Audi a4 with buyout of 15,897, to just returnung that to the dealer and going into this VW. it is bigger, smoother ride and fun to drive also. alot more leg room in rear.

I think you did great. The08 Komfort has the MSRP 27900 and Invoice of 26064 on its national base price tag without any options. And you got dealer invoice 24,612 and purchase price of car for you 23,012 on a fully loaded one. That's incredibly good and the best deal I have read and are like the price for the 2.0T base model price without options. Would that price be good if purchase instead of lease? I guess it was.

yes it was a lease only, and dont know what it would of been buying it,
Yes I did put 2000. down which we did not want to do but it worked that way for us, each 1000 only raised or lowered it by 26 dollars.
Really I dont know if we reaLLY got a good deal or not.

That seems like a great deal.
Did the $2000 include drive off fees (1st month , plates, etc) ? Is it a 39 or 36 months lease?
Thanks for the info.
#518 of 1199 2008 Passat Residuals
Mar 07, 2008 (8:52 pm)
I am interested in the sign and drive deal. The base model appears to be $329/12K. Was wondering if the residual % and money factor are the same for the Komfort and Lux models/ Also, is there a similar (lower monthly) on 39 months?

So i went back and forth, i hate car shopping, it always causes a headache, I never want to hear someone getting a better price than me, i just dont want to be scammed by these car sales people....
So my final selling was based on 2 options:
1) $1900 down (basically to cover fees) and $256 a month for a 36 month lease at 12000 miles a year
2) $0 down and $314 a month for a 36 month least at 12000 miles a year
I think i am going with the $314 a month.
Yes this is for the komfort, with heated seats, i pod connection and i was able to get them to thrown in a cargo tray and the wall weather mats....
do you think thats a reasonable price?
I hope so because i tried to get another dealership to beat this offer, and i couldnt....

I was thinking so, i really hate overpaying and being taken advantage of. Let me ask you, is there such a thing as paying the destination charge on a lease? I dont think so because one dealership was trying to put that in and i refused to pay it. So, i went to another dealership and worked out the right deal and it came with the ipod accessory, which i didnt care about, and because of that i was able to get them to throw in the all weather mats and the cargo tray for the truck, which i know i will use....
I really wish the Komfort came in manual, it would make the car so much more fun, dont you think?
