Just purchased 2012 Passat SEL Yesterday
I thought it would be helpful to post this info for others to compare when shopping.
How about this format -
1) Engine 2.5L
2) Transmission AT DSG
3) Trimline SEL
4) Options -spoiler,navigation, fender audio, sunroof, all weather mats, mud flaps
5) Tough Negotiating. they are selling these like hot cakes. Mud Flaps unavailable but the deater agreed to include and install when available.
6) Price including tax, title, tags $ 29,500.00 OTD approximately $ 27,000.00 before taxes, Sticker price was $29,200.00 including destination.
Wife loves it.
Hope this post helps others.
