    We managed 7% on my company S3 Sportback. They were only going to give 4% at first. Sportbacks in general are more popular, so you probably won't get as big a discount as you would on the 3-dr.

    Anyone tried drivethedeal.com or know much about them?

    They seem to give quite reasonable discounts. Another place to look is leasing/PCP firms, they'll quote a list price and the discounted price you end up paying the finance on. The RBS one, Freeway, I think does this.

    You can normally get the dealer to match broadspeed, coast2coast etc plus you have the added convience of using a local dealer.

    Get some online quotes for finance as well and take them to your dealer. They make money on pretty much everything so there is some movement.

    I bought mine through Autobytel. They give genuine discounts and are very helpful. Also you deal with a main dealer. Only downside is you may have to travel for your car, but then again if you are saving 3-4K on book price its worth it I think

    Our A3 was ordered through DrivetheDeal last year; delivered by the dealer on the back of a lory (luckily, since we're on the south coast and the dealer was in Scotland :faint:)

    After the inital order was placed online (10.5% discount IIRC) all other contact, including payment, was direct with the dealer, who couldn't have been more helpful :icon_thumright:

    Dundee Audi :icon_thumright: Having said that, when the car went into our local dealer to have euro plates fitted (we forgot to specify them from new) it was 'rebranded'; new tax disc holder and key rings with Worthing Audi on them :)

    Cheers Guys - still waiting for my preferred dealer to come back with a decent price but no rush from my perspective, I'll badger him at the end of this month when new reg sales have slowed down.
