    Van Nuys not too sure of the deal or the dealer he was trying to keep me from walkin' out so I can't honestly say if it would've gone down. :confuse:

    this actually does not sound too bad; you got the nav, floor mats and the ground effects kit, all options that are fairly pricey. I think you did ok.
  • eldainoeldaino Posts: 1,618
    It's not the "alloy" used it's the name of the model. They are also known as "Detroit". Most OEM wheels are cast aluminum alloy of some sort.

    yes i know, that is what i was trying to say; its not a 'brand' like bbs, (it may be made by them), its just the name of that style of wheel. I thought i heard it was a special kind of alloy, i guess not.

    Hi,
    Just purchased an awesome red 07 gti 4dr manual basic package. Had to shop around at a couple of dealers and some internet sales. Found a good local dealer in the end. TTL bumped the price to 24k.

    A tip about the mat kit. Get it locally at the dealership for 72$. Its just the four mats without the trunk mat.

    I am looking for a 2006 or 2007 GTI in Orange County. All I want is the 2dr with DSG. The standard features are pretty nice. The MSRP is 23935 and invoice is 22401. How much did others pay around the southern California area?

    Hi - I am considering an offer for a 4DR auto GTI w/pkg 2, IPOD adapter, and 17 inch alloy wheels. The MSRP is $28,144. The offer is for $27,000. Does this seem like a fair price? (I'm in the Northern CA area.) Just wondering what people have paid for a car similar to this.

    Thanks!

    Below actual MSRP is always good just don't allow for any second sticker non-sense. Of course the iPod jack is a standard feature I believe and 18" wheels are the upgrade. You don't lose anything with the 17" wheels except weight. Seems like a good deal to me.
  • eldainoeldaino Posts: 1,618
    man 27? I've seen package 2's around here (nc) for at least a grand less...but i don't think they had the ipod adapter, which is different than the aux jack. But if its any consolation, perhaps the jack would be better, it has the same sound quality, but it doens't charge the ipod. Many people like it for the ablity to be able to control it through the radio, but i've heard this is cumbersome and doesn't work as well as its advertised.

    The GTI comes stock with 17 inch wheels. Vw has other 17's that you can equip the car with, but since its just a different look, as oppossed to a bigger, more expensive wheel like an 18 inch would be, maybe they could swing it for ya if you don't like the stock 17's.

    Thank you for the feedback imontoya and eldaino. I prefer the look of the standard 17 inch wheels over the 18 so I am ok with the wheels. Like many other car buyers, my main concern was making sure the price was fair...I am now feeling better about the offer. :)
  • zigster38zigster38 Posts: 117
    you are paying too much. At least 500 bucks under too.
  • iomaticiomatic Posts: 48
    Wow.

    TMV has that at 27323 w/o wheels and mats. Nice... what should I negotiate towards a 4-door, DSG, pkg. 2?

    Thanks!

    Just put a deposit down on a 2007 4dr, DSG, pkg 2, mats, united gray, 17" wheels - $27000. Tax, document, etc. all extra. Financing thru VW, but the price was settled before we talked financing.

    Car is being transported from port, so I haven't seen the actual window MSRP, but all my info put it at ~ $27,800. I went into dealership looking to pay 27 even (after researching TMV and Kelly Blue book prices) and that's what I got, so I'm satisfied. I don't think I could have done much better - there weren't a lot of grey 4 dr DSG's in my area (NE Ohio - Midwest), so I didn't think I could do a better deal unless I went with another color or some other change.

    Now I just want to get my hands on the actual car!

    Congratulations!!! Welcome to the VW Family...You will love the DSG... :)

    Does anyone have the MF or Residuals for a 2007 GTI 4-Door? I'm interested in a 24 or 36 month lease with 15K miles.

    Thanks!
  • imontoyaimontoya Posts: 29
    Explain that to me and I could tell you - I have a lease on my '07 GTI
  • mrjohnmrjohn Posts: 3
    07 gti 4 door with package 1 with 18" wheels w/ performance tires, 8 airbags, dark gray, in ct, $24249, plus ttl $26415, price looks to be on par with other posters (it is a 6 speed manual). What is the real difference in wheel size anyway?, 17 to 18' is not a huge jump up.
    Oh what a blast to drive, its being so long since my last stick shift.
    So much for zoom zoom, now its time for vroom vroom!!!!!!
    Thanks, John.
  • jrhspeedjrhspeed Posts: 2
    From what i've read, the 18" have a stiffer ride. Haven't actually driven one though.

    Just picked up my 07 4d with DSG - after having driven a manual for last 13 years, gotta say I'm loving the DSG. Pretty much feels like a manual, performs like a manual; all with the ease of an automatic. Or maybe I'm just getting old ;) !
  • timmbojtimmboj Posts: 123
    Volkswagon's numbers for their Money Factor and Residual Value for their current lease promotion. I'm trying to calculate a lease for myself before approaching a dealer, but I can't do it without those two figures.
  • eldainoeldaino Posts: 1,618
    your tires' sidewall will proably be smaller, hence the rougher ride!

    I have an opportunity to buy a used 2007 GTI 2dr DSG with 5K miles. It has package 2, ground effects, will be certified for 2 additional years of warranty. $24K before tax/title. Any thoughts?
  • eldainoeldaino Posts: 1,618
    man that sounds AWESOME, the votex ground effects kit alone is pricey, as is package 2; your bascially paying what someone with a 4 door gti with only dsg as an option would pay. sounds great!
  • Hey everyone. I'm leaning toward leasing a GTI and this is the price I am getting from a dealership in New Jersey.

    White 4-door GTI with Package 1 and 6-speed manual
    3 years/36K miles
    $328/month
    No money down, except inceptions, tax, security, first month, etc. ($1800)

    So the 328/month does not include tax. Thoughts? Seems a little high to me...
  • ucsb805ucsb805 Posts: 8
    I've been quoted 100-300 above invoice for an 07 GTI with dsg, package 1, and 18" alloys. I'm in southern CA, near santa barbara, and would love to be able to purchase by the end of the month. Has anyone had any experience with any of the dealers between here and LA? What are other people paying?

    I test drove the car yesterday and fell in love...thanks in advance for any advice!

    please help..

    i know i want a black 2007 GTI w/ DSG. and i am planning to buy it in 2 months using carbuyingtips.com as a resource.

    what is the big difference between 2 door vs. 4 door?

    weight? speed? style?

    and what prices should i be looking at bc this is the month of July and most dealerships are trying to bring in the new 08 GTIs.

    help appreciated.

    j-

    Ummm... I think the big difference is the number of doors? ;)

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    as far as pricing? is there a clear cut difference.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 128,281
    2007 Volkswagen GTI

    Looks like the 4-door is $500 more than the 2-door.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    totally worth it, unless you love the way the 2 door looks.

    I had a most excellent experience with Colonial VW in Feasterville, PA (Philadelphia). I waited until the last few days of June to contact about 7 dealers in the U.S., and these folks sold me a loaded GTI at Edmunds Invoice price. Everything was handled through e-mail. They were great. No games, very professional. None of the other dealers I contacted came anywhere near that price. I don't know if it was my timing, or their market, but I got a great car at a great price and my best lease ever. All the Edmunds research paid off big-time!

    :D

    OK, it's used. But only has 8,100 miles.

    2007 GTI 4-door, Pkg 1 and 2, 18" wheels.
    Minor curb rash on one wheel.
    6-speed manual.
    Red with Black interior

    Seller wants $22,000 but I could probably get it for $20,500.

    Good deal?

    KBB only has 2006 used car values, and it says an 06 is worth between 20 and 21k but this is an '07.
