I am probably getting the same setup as you(base + sunroof + leather/suede), which has the retail value of $33,700. With taxes and fees, the total comes to about $37,500 (in California). I think I might be able to negotiate slightly lower price if I shop outside the Bay Area (I am hoping to save a thousand).With the options I want on my IS, the car comes out to about 34k and 37k after taxes and stuff. Are you saying that dealers will not budge on the 37k?
No, just the regular kind with auto trans. It wasn't slow, but it wasn't fast either. Good passing power, but so-so low-end torque. BTW, 4Motion will slow down the car by almost half a second in 0-to-60 MPH.Did you drive the Passat GLX 4 Motion?
