Just put my deposit down on this from the brand new dealer in Burlington, Flow Volkswagen... I've been pricing this car at three different dealers for the past week and finally came down on numbers that I could agree with. We're over $4,000 under MSRP with VW's current 0.9% offer. There was no silver R-Line in stock anywhere in the local area (NC, SC, VA, TN) that didn't have miles on it so my car will be coming straight from the port and should arrive either Friday or early next week.
I'll update this thread with pics when it comes in. Excited to be a new owner of a CC, I've been eyeing these cars for a while and even cross-shopped a little with the new Audi A3, but I decided I didn't want to pay the extra premium for an Audi that was less equipped than the CC and lacked the CC's unique visual exterior and interior styling. I was able to sit in a brand new 2015 A3 yesterday and while it was impressive, I wasn't happy with some of the interior quality as well as the lack of amenities when equipped in the same price range as a CC. Basically, you'd be paying an extra $2,500 for a car that has more power and AWD, but much less interior quality and less features. For me, since I already have a Golf R, I have no reason to justify the A3... I'll look again in a couple of years when S3s are available at a discount (and possibly even the RS3).
So this is a placeholder thread for now, but there should be pics coming soon. Until then you can look at pics of my Golf R or something which is linked in my sig.
