So he called me today and told me that he'll buy my Passat from me at 30% more than the blue book value is because passats are in short stock. I might get a GTI now
I just got the same call as a follow-up to a mailed request saying my Passat is a VIP something and they want to buy it... etc etc
I've only had this thing for like 6 months... ?!?!

They just want your used vehicles to sell on the booming used car market and move you into a new car. They will make money off selling your used car because 30% over trade-in isn't crap compared to what they will retail it for, and they will make money off selling you a new VW. It's a win-win for them. Although you are likely to get a decent deal through this, you are almost certainly not going to come out ahead.
