Hi all, as some of you may know I was looking to start some negotiations with a dealer on an A3 sportback. I've been waiting on actually negotiating due to the fact that we are actually looking for 2 cars, one for the wife as well, and she likes the A1 S-Line. However due to the fact she has a dodgy left knee, it would have to be an S-Tronic version (to replace her current VW Polo DSG), and we've been struggling to find one to test drive. Well that all changed this weekend when we tracked one down at Cheshire Oaks Audi near Chester. She loved the car (test drive went well), so thought I would start negotiations. The 2 cars were my A3 SB 2.0 TDI S-Tronic and her A1 1.4 TFSI S-Line S-Tronic. With options, mine is listing at just over £32k and hers at £21k so £53k on 2 cars. Imagine my shock then when I was told very firmly that both cars are not discounted at all (not even a penny) and they would be a list price -both of them. They "might" be able to do something on Lifeshine etc (which I don't want) but that was all , so we called it a day and left feeling very dispirited. On the way back we called into Warrington Audi and were told exactly the same -£53k is what we would have to pay -take it or leave it, so we left it. We then called into the VW dealership near by and discussed a loaded MK7 Golf and a Polo Blue GT (total £48k) and were immediately told, "sure of course we can do a deal" (even though Mk7 Golfs and Polo's are flying out the door at the moment), and within minutes got over £3k off the cars without even trying. Am I just in a minority or trying the wrong dealers, or has everyone paid list price for their Audi's. At the moment VW is looking favourite to get the orders, which is a real shame as I really liked the new A3 !
