Another VW Sales rep here to answer questions!

Hey guys, I noticed there's already a salesman on here from VA, I'm from San Francisco, CA. If anyone needs any advice or answers on VW or Audi let me know!

Thing is...whenever we get a salesman, they are never around to answer the questions.

true... however i'll answer this one anyways. i have an 07 blk/blk GTI pkg 2 with APR 91. APR chip on stealth mode is undetectable from scanning, but as mentioned in another post, if you blow your engine and they download the code, it's not gonna match the stock program and you might be fooked.

P.S. Car salesmen aren't always busy so I'm actually on the forums quite a bit... i'll answer your q's dont worry... guess i should put my dealership info in teh sig too.

Why is VW sometimes partnered w/Mazda? That's just weird. I've been to TWO VW dealerships and they have a Mazda dealership either sharing the same space or right next door. Binky you know?

dealerships are all franchised, got no relationship really... we have audi too. Mazda is a good reliable cheap brand and theres good back end profit (dealer cash).

@binky,

are dealerships likely to reduce prices on accessories such as rims? basically i want to buy a 07 rabbit (white) but i cant decide whether to get the rims from the dealer and pay the 1600 extra or buy them eventually off of someone or ebay, or get another brand. so is there a chance a dealer could sell the rims when buying the car for 1,100 instead of 1600? or are chances slim to none?

thanks,
david

slim to none. dealers can only discount when there's a profit margin. there is nothing in those rims. go aftermarket or ebay or whatever but dont buy rims from us...

Wish they had car dealers on military bases! No tax there.

I don't work for a dealer, but the method I use to buy new cars, works everytime.

See link below for my method.
