      Can't you argue that it wasn't you behind the wheel?

      Also a fan. I only heard about it on here - props to the vortex people.

      Changed to ECS 25 mm bolt-on spacers in the rear and Forge 11 mm pass-thru spacers in front with new 40 mm tuner lug bolts.

      Cleaned it up over the weekend. Waxed entire car with Synwax and...

      It was the best result possible.

      Also - a lesson could be learned. When the dealer tries this junk - play hardball

      I saw you are in Texas, but nobody ever used up all that refridgerant in 30K miles. Take it to dealer, they have a purge test they can do.

      Although you may have been short-changed from the...

      I agree with lots of this. As I get older, I have less time to mod, and truthfully less time to do any work on the cars. Coupled with adult responsibilities, and the fact that my friends have child...

      The VW CREDIT stuff (and to a lesser extent - but still encouraging- the DMV stuff) makes me believe there will be no paperwork needing to be re-done. At all.

      I believe that is why South Park always has him/her running over somebody with a car

      Seriously? It is literally the oldest trick in the book - the old bait and switch with cars / numbers / trade in value / rustproofing / extended warranty / balloon payment / extended terms / higher...

      Exciting thread. This is going to be EPIC! :mad:

      Seriously though, either the numbers changed or they didn't.

      Hey Chris. Yes everything works and car is basically perfect. AC is freezing cold, I barely use it ever. I am more of a windows-down guy. Cruise also works great, hardly ever used. I am the...

      Hey! I have a 2003 Jetta, and it is fully restored.

      He's right. Nobody cares but me.

      Yup - sounds almost like a lease indeed... Except ALWAYS worse figures than the typical lease. Those balloon finance deals are not your friend. Compare the numbers to the factory lease program-

      Agreed for many, but not all. Such as, if you don't own a home, and are just looking at winning the interest rate game for 4-5 years, the 401K loan can be a VERY SMART IDEA to avoid a lousy car loan...

      Serious suggestion: ask the sales rep or F&I clown to go over the numbers line-by-line on the new papers. If only the code # changed, all $$$ figures are identical, no?

      I am feeling lucky, although I am expecting a slight $$ change now on the new paperwork - and not in the OP's favor.

      We need to send a "sales" guy over to personally handle this. No, we can't...

      Worst. Idea. Ever.

      Either buy it outright.
      Or lease it with the option of handing it back.

      In my 20 years of sales, the balloon finance was basically the easiest way for a dealer to pad profit...

      Good question.

      I believe ONLY the leasing guy can buy it out at residual value when lease is up. If you give him the cash to buy it, transaction will be in his name.

      I would like to think...
