The build date is inside the hood. You could ask the dealer, but I don't know if he's tell you. Most 08's were built in 07. BTW, which dealer has 8 08's left?

Thanks for the info!
As of Sunday, Quirk VW in Braintree, MA had 8 left.

I found the build date on the plate attached to the driver-side door jamb, where you also find the recommended tire inflation figures.

I've been checking on AutoTrader for weeks, and there are some dealers in the Pacific NW that have several 2008 Eos's in stock. You can check AutoTrader, use zip code 83701 and search for all within 500 miles; that should cover OR, WA, UT and northern CA.

Persistence pays. Sold my 2000 Chevy Cavalier Z24 convertible on 9/24 after only 6 days on Craigslist. I had already been checking AutoTrader and Cars.com for all new 2007 and 2008 Eos but couldn't find exactly what I wanted within reasonable distance: Paprika Red base turbo. On 9/25 I started checking the VW dealers' sites through VW.com and found the perfect car at a dealer in San Jose, CA (700 miles from my SW Idaho home) for an incredible $27,779 with all four available options on the base turbo: auto, heated seats, floor mats, i-Pod adapter. Sent them an e-mail that night, and got their response Fri. morning: yes, they still had the car. Called them immediately and said I would look at the car over the weekend. Booked the only flight Fri. afternoon from Boise to San Jose and five hours later I called the dealer from the San Jose airport and asked him to send his courtesy car to pick me up (they did!). Saw my true love that evening. Did the paperwork Sat. morning, including the VW Credit 2.9% for 60 mos., and drove home Sat./Sun. with the top down in the 80F sunshine of the Nevada/Oregon desert! Glorious!! Got 32 mpg on its first two tanks of premium.
When I put on the "show" for people by operating the top, they are amazed. There are fewer than ten Eos in SW Idaho, and I really like driving something so cool and so out-of-the-ordinary. And today, I found out just how nice heated seats are, as the temp today was in the low 40's. This is an amazing car!!

Hello all. Just rolled-over 10,000 trouble free miles in our 2.0T Base model, six-speed manual. No issues to report. Fuel economy average is 30.1 combined, 60% highway, 40% city. I alternate every other tank with Premium fuel. I also lube all roof seals every 3 months with Krytox grease. The car has never leaked. I hope all of you are as happy with your Eos' as are we.
#170 of 183 VW Incentives for EOS Really Urgent!
Jul 26, 2009 (4:36 pm)
I've been shopping around for vw eos. Dealer is quoting 5K below msrp on their website on all eos models. Some lux versions are 6K lower than msrp. I want to do my homework before I go talk to the finance guy. Edmunds says there is 1500 cash to dealer incentive that can not be combined with other apr or lease offers. Even with that 5K right out of the bat is too aggressive. I'm assuming there is more to the incentives than I found on the internet. Does anybody know what's the real deal for 2009 models? I'm planning to pull the trigger soon so any quick help is much appreciated.
Based in Arlington, VA
#171 of 183 Where can I find a used MB 320 CLK convertible?
Jul 27, 2009 (9:10 am)
Prices have been falling at a rapid pace, but I still can't find a reasonably priced used MB convertible. Does anyone know of a website or dealer who is asking realistic prices for this car? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thanks. I didn't realize I had posted it in the Eos category.
