I'm Just About To Take The Plunge And Order A New Gti MKV. Have Spent Several Hours On Colour Spec Ect. Finally Came Up With :-

3Door,Tornado Red,Electric Sunroof,18" Monzas,Lux Pack 2,ArmRest With Ipod Prep,HighLine Computer,Rear Tinted Windows From "B" Pillar Back,Smokers Pack,Bi-Xenon HeadLights,WinterPack,Rear Parking Sensor. Total ?23275.00 O.T.R.Also Intend To Get Cruise Control Fitted By Dealer It's Cheaper Than Factory Fitted ?150.00. Factory Fitted ?270.00 Strange But True.

I Have No Trade In And Will Be Paying Cash. Can Anyone Tell Me If Discounts Are Available At This Present Time, What Should I Aim To Get? Would They Discount The Standard Spec Car Only Or Could You Get Discounts On Factory Fitted Items Aswell.Just Need Some Kind Of Figure To Aim For To Get A Good Deal. Any Help Would Be Appreciated.

Discounts on the GTi are not all that great but there are some out there. If you don't mind waiting and don't mind about having an import you could save some more money by buying an import (see seperate thread) I'd get on the phone and call loads of dealers and don't just limit to local dealers if you could save ??? by traveling 200 miles then do it, train or even air travel isn't much nowadays and its also fun.

You have got off to a good start by deciding on your spec and you know the price, now just get on the phone !

Hi GT-DUB

I emailed a dozen dealers with the spec I wanted, and one came up trumps.

Just a thought.

Out of interest is rear tints a dealer option.?

When I Say Rear Tinted Windows I Know All The Windows Are Tinted As Standard, But This New Option is A Darker Tint To The Rear Windows Only A Sort Of Privacy Tint Just Like. I Presume Dont Realy Know Hav'nt Seen One With Them Yet? Also Not 100% Sure Also If The Rear Hatch Window Also Has This Darker Tint. Will Have To Enquire About This With Dealer Unless Anyone Here Knows??

Anyone Dealt With These People Any Prob,s With Delivery PDI Ect. What Happens If You Have Problem Will Your Local Dealer Sort it or do You Have To Go Back to Original Suppliers I Presume You Also Get The Full 3 Year UK Warranty??

All they do is put you in touch with a UK dealer who will sell you the car at the price. After that its the same as if you had ordered from that dealer, not pre-registered, car built to order, 3 year warranty etc. If there is a problem any dealer will sort it.

I got ?500 dissy and the salesman said I was the first he know's to get one cos they don't discount GTI's or R32's as they are so indemand...?

I also got the paint & cloth protection thingy for half price and a couple of dealer add on's for free.

He is only half right - the R32 is not discounted but 5% can be had off a GTI.
