      What did you guys end up paying for yours? MSRP? MSRP+?

      I'm curious.

      I was expecting same, but found one with significant markdown on the east coast this morning. Now I have 2 R's reserved lol. BTW, if you're willing to drive a little bit ... you can get one in the next 2 weeks instead of April. I recommend going onto cars.com and doing a little bit of cross-shopping

      MSRP.

      I don't think anyone will be letting them go for under MSRP unless you have connections or a good history with dealer (multiple cars purchased from them, etc.).

      Likewise I doubt anyone is paying over MSRP unless they live in Montana or something and are 1,000 miles from another VW dealership.

      I have in writing that MSRP + destination and nothing more. Guess we will find out if they hold their word in 2 weeks time!

      Well as of this morning, I'm dealing with a dealership that is 1300 miles away and selling the car at a significant discount. So this will be my 2nd long distance car purchase in the last 6 months

      For loaded 4-door, he said close to $34,000. Not sure if that includes or excludes delivery charge...

      I'll get the raw numbers on Friday and post it.

      $500 under invoice but that's because the company I work for is considered a supplier to VW so I was able to use a supplier certificate to purchase it.

      My company is a preferred vendor. I asked the sales guy to look it up and when he found it he wrote it up for invoice. -- loaded 4 door $35,417. I wasn't the first on the dealer list so I have to wait for the next batch to make it to the dealer towards the end of Feb.

      I'm hoping the dealer I ordered from honors the same deal. Has your dealer confirmed that price?

      Yes, they have to honor it. The only wiggle room they have is that it's up to them wether they want to sell you a car from their stock or from their order bank. Or, if VWoA is restricting it on specific models which at this time they're not.

      You also have to work with a dealer participating in the program. Not all VW dealers participate.

      The dealer told me they will honor it but I will remain nervous about it until the deal is executed.

      I'm pleased that VWoA hasn't excluded the Golf R from the program....yet

      4DR w/NAV MSRP + $770 destination.

      They quoted that the day I gave my deposit. Tried to add 2k mark up and I called them out on it. He then said is just MSRP plus destination.

      So you just showed up with the supplier certificate and there is a set "supplier" price that I can purchase it, assuming that the dealership even accepts supplier discounts for this car?

      No, I was upfront about it ahead of time and asked if they'd honor it assuming that VWoA didn't exclude the Golf R from the program.

      I just looked and my company is on the website.

      Is the $35,417 for a loaded 4 door including destination? I am showing somewhere around $34,900 incl destination for supplier discount.

      Also anyone using Friends and Family Discount?

      Just pulled up my supplier cert. Looks like you got a good dealer to work with!

      6 - Vehicle Eligibility

      Final vehicle availability is determined by the participating Dealers. Dealers are not required to sell you a vehicle from their stock or order bank if the vehicle is in short supply.

      Like I said, "Close to 34" I would count anything within 800 of that as close

      + 700 for destination and that puts me in that mid 35 range
