      Must be? I am not sure. But its a fantastic color.

      If Neu318 does get a chance to look at it and my bank comes back and says yay before even selling my Gti then it just might have to happen!

      I hope it works out for you. Looks like it comes with OEM 18s, super low miles and IMO Lava gray is the sexiest A3 color out there - hehe.

      I dunno... I bought my lava grey 2008 2.0T in Florida with premium pkg., open-sky and S-tronic with a few options for $24,xxx plus fees plus tax plus tag... BRAND NEW.

      So I can't help thinking that this is a 'ho-hum' deal. -Maybe it's just down here, or maybe it's just that I'm a negotiating ninja, but 23k plus fees plus tax plus tag etc. for a used car that's out of warranty? ...Meh.

      I think it may be Florida. I've noticed in the past when looking at new cars on E-bay Florida dealers tend to offer some of the best deals.

      hahah my guess is you are a ninja. To put it in perspective the only A3 for sale used in Edmonton right now, well that I have found so far has 80k Kilometers on it and Southgate Audi wants 32k for it. Brand new Quattro you will be looking at around 40k I believe.

      Also one thing to note is I would be paying the taxes for Alberta so 5%. Plus importing fee's.

      I have figured it out and 10,000$ price difference is needed to be worth importing a car. And well if I could get this one for 20,000$ then its def worth it.

      Plus I really just want a 3.2 Quattro.

      Some dealerships will take a huge loss on certain cars to keep their overall sales numbers up with a particular car company which helps them save money on the cars they can charge a premium on.

      I understand how dealers work with volume bonuses and such but 8k below invoice is hard to believe, especially on a 2.0t A3. I could understand a VW V12 Phateon that sat on the lot for 18 months.

      Ok so I went to see the car. Wow it is super clean. I looked over in and out. Only things are tires probably have about 40% life in them, shifter surround (the aluminum part is peeling a little) and mirrors have those stupid glue on blind spot mirrors. Saw one or two scratches but that's normal. Engine bay was super clean you could eat off it. If I had the money I wouldn't mind adding it to my collection. Lol. Didn't take it for a ride cause I had things to do. Spoke with one of the guys there. Super nice. Guy is named Alex and number is 305-444-7740. I told him I had a friend from Canada that was interested. Said it was no problem to ship.

      Well assuming all goes well with the bank this week...

      First off will be winter tires... LOL

      Seriously though will do the APR chip, look at exhaust probably. Spring time get some coils. On my way to Leavenworth next year I want to stop in at HPA and get the Haldex and DSG stuff done.

      That is the start anyways. Like the single mess grill so will be doing that too probably!

      Unfotunately APR software is not much of an upgrade on the 3.2. If you do exhaust and intake consider the Giac or HPA. Also, let me know if you do Leavenworth as that's my neck of the woods and we should meet up for a beer and I'll pay you to bring me a couple cases of Sleeman :-)

      It was late July 2008, model-year-end.

      I'd been hunting around and my local dealership wasn't getting any more in, -they only had two A3's in, and I didn't want either of them. (Options weren't a match for what I wanted).

      My wife had been calling everywhere within a 200 mile radius, and a place in Melbourne said they'd get what we wanted for the price we wanted to pay... (which was stupidly low). -they didn't have it on the lot, but they'd make it happen.

      I'd been working in Tampa off & on, and I'd stopped by the Audi dealership there to see what they had. -They had several cars, but said there was no way they could do the price I was offering...

      After a week of hearing nothing from Melbourne, the Tampa place called and said if I was still in the market, they'd match Melbourne's offer just to get a car off the lot. -I didn't care about color, and this one had stuff like iPod dock, which wasn't on my list, but I didn't own an iPod or iPhone, so who cares about that... right? Anyhow, all the other things I wanted were there, so I said yes.. so long as Melbourne hadn't got me the car yet.

      I called Melbourne to tell them I had found a car, and they told me that they'd hopelessly overestimated their ability to find me a car at that price, so they were trying to figure out a way to back out of their promise anyhow...

      So I called Tampa back and said we had a deal. -Drove over that evening and picked up the car. For cash.

      -I'd told them I had a Golf to trade.

      They looked over my 99 Golf and offered me 1500 for it, so I kept it, and got a $4000 offer the next week. -I think they were hoping I'd trade and they'd make something back on that, but I had my wife drive the Audi home, and I drove back in the VW.

      Total amount I paid was $27,xxx, including delivery, dealer fees, tax, tag and title. Im fairly sure it was $27,7xx, but I'd have to check.

      Ninja stylee.

      ...and I kept the Golf!
