The Luther’s prices are quite fair (or at least they were when I was buying), but bringing written quotes from other dealers might force them to match or even beat a better price offer. It might make sense to request quotes from Wisconsin as Fincher suggests or even west of the Plains (), since anything VW in Minnesota is under Luther’s control. I am curious which of the Luther’s subordinate dealers you were trying to work with. The one in Burnsville was the best to me, though my local Park Place Motors (also Luther’s group dealership) in Rochester, MN did beat their offer after I showed them Burnsville’s quote.
Good luck to you!
My deal at Strong Motors was quite real... $48565 MSRP, $40,199 plus $399 dealership fee, for a stripped with mats and liner 2013 TDI Sport. I did a double take on the ad price, and printed it out, and held them to the advertised price.
It's really simple, ask them if they can do $6500 off of MSRP, either they can or they can't... if they can't, counter with $5500 off, or what ever number you can live with for an OUT THE DOOR price quote.
There are really good deals out there now in Florida also, might be even worth it to have it shipped, for the savings.
Point being, you have to work for the deals, and you have to make it happen, no one else is going to do it for you.
There's also a white Touareg TDI Exec sitting at Findlay Motors in Henderson NV that I am sure you could ask if they'd do $6500 off of MSRP, and they'd most likely tell you yes, if you finance it elsewhere. Ask for Mike Arthur there. I did business with them last year for my 2012 tdi sport, very happy with how I was treated, well worth it.
2 weeks ago, I saw some very, very good deals on Lux's in Boise ID, might still be going on, check out VW dealers websites in that area.... as I said, you have to work hard to find the deals.
