I managed to get 8% off the list price. Also got the dealer to find alternative finance options as the Audi Finance quote was for too rich for me.
I also got £18500 for my TT, Glass Guide said it was worth £19200. Considering that the service light was on, there was a minor ding on the front driver-side arch and it needed 4 new tyres, I think I got a reasonable deal.
Have heard some people getting upto 10+% off but that was a few months ago
I'm being told that the allowance has now been lowered for each dealership so that they now only make 14%, Apparently Audi UK are struggling to get new stock so are now putting presssure on dealerships to reduce the discounts, I think if you are lucky and in the right place, right time scenario you could still get a blinding deal just depends how desperate they are to hit their figures.
I wouldn't believe this info, as I remember being offered a crazy price on pre-facelift stock items by the dealers. Brand new, a black 3 door and a red 3 door, extras & taxes included, EUR 33,000. The normal price, no extras included was 39.000, and we all know how much audi optional equipment costs!
I also received a 13% discount on the SB (stock item too), which suggests that 14% is not their real margin. It's just my opinion though, I can't state any facts for that matter.
I managed 13% too, I was probaby spun this line to make me feel good, it worked too !!
8 8 % or whatever I still think the S3 offers great value for money, just take a look at the price of the new Golf R, add leather and xenons and you will see what I mean.
I've been going around a few dealers for the past month or so and couldn't find the 10 or 11%s other people have got, maybe those days are over or I could be s**t at negotiating. Anyhow I got 8%, but with not bad px, equivalent to nearly 10% at another dealer who laughed me out the shop when I went to see if they would beat it.
I was being quoted a lead time of Jan/Feb for new orders. Quite a few available from stock, if you're flexible with options.
There was only one Sprint Blue Sportback with Buckets, Nav, Bose and Phone Prep in the country.
@ Norky - There was/is a rather tasty Ibis Sportback with Buckets, Bose, Phone Prep and Panoramic Roof at Birmingham Audi. Its got no Sat-Nav though and is an Stronic. Dealer was offering me about 8% off, you may be able to negotiate a bigger discount.
Just spoke with the dealer, he says I have RSNe 2010. Its got AMI which apparently is only available on the 2010, unless of course you upgrade the software on older versions. Also has a Higher Resolution screen, since I have never used the previous RSNe I cant comment on its quality.
Also mentioned something about a 3D View which I cant understand but have posted a new thread for this topic
