Pulled the trigger.... *Now with Photos*
« on: May 30, 2008, 02:27:58 PM »
Made the purchase on an out of state vehicle today - well almost.  Technically speaking the paperwork is still being finalized.  The deal is as good as done.  They even put a sold sign on it and locked her up so no one would be sliding in and out of it.  They did tell me they are going to keep it on the showroom floor for "pull factor."   

I would love to tell you I am flying out tonight to go and get it but unfortunately my job may keep me in the state one week longer than I would like (due to mandated court appearances by the man).

If all goes well we will be flying out next Wed to pick her up.  Worst case scenario is we fly out the 11th.  She is 800 miles away but only has 17,000 miles on her.  This translates to a 4yr/50,000 mile remaining factory warranty WITH free service on the vehicle. 

I have pics and what not but I don't want to jinx the deal until I get the paperwork via FedEx.  I am expecting the contract via fax any moment but the hard paperwork will be a bit later. 

I will let ya guess (if you like) what it might be... as most of you may know what it is or at least have an idea.  The details however is what makes it a standout to me.  I have been searching for about 3 months now.  What will follow is the end result.  The car I have been looking for.   :)

Really good place to deal with.  Small company.  Owner (who I have been dealing with exclusively) has been in the industry for 30 years and with the particular car company this car is from, for the past 25 years.  They deal with a bit higher end luxury cars.  The negotiating was simple, no pressure, and I really feel as though I wil be coming home with a raging deal.

More info to follow...

Sales agreement has been signed. 

Can you say, "carbon fiber?"

Looking at possibly having the car shipped to me.  After the cost of airline tickets (two weeks out about 229 a piece - fiancee is going with me) plus gas plus meals, it might be cheaper to have it shipped.  Plus I won't have to put the miles on the car.  We will see if I can work something out in the neighborhood of around 800.  I would aslo avoid having to wait two weeks before I could go and get it.  It would be loaded up first thing next week.

Oh yea... I nabbed this car for $6845 below KBB. :o

Very nice, if you do ship use a good transportation company. Someone that wont leave you hanging if your car disappears or gets trashed. Of course I have no recommendation for you. :D

Congrats, can't wait to see some pictures.

If you do choose to ship it, FedEx owns a company that ships vehicles.  My father used them to have a 1950 Ford F-1 shipped to him from the east coast.  It went well, but not cheap.  I'll see him tonight, I'll ask what the company is and post up tonight.

200 for the cost of gas... or MPH?  lol

Let me know on the shipping company.  Not sure if this is the route I will go yet but it is a thought.  It sounds fun going to pick it up and then getting acquainted with it on the way home. :D

Just got done booking the flights (decided to go out rather than have it shipped).  We leave on the 11th.  Arrive about 115pm.  The owner of the dealership is going to pick us up... the shop is only 5 miles from the airport.  Then we are on our way home baby! :)

These guys have been so great and easy to deal with, I want to meet them, shake hands, and thank them.  Also, they may have some 18s with winter tires on them for me for about 500.   :D

So a bit more skinny on the ride:

2006
V8
19s
Brand new tires with only 30 miles on them - from shop to dealer
Cross drilled Brembo rotors
Napa Leather (BLK)
Nav
Reverse Sensing
Carbon Fiber trim - inside, rear valance, and rear lip
6spd MT
16,800 miles (factory warranty still active along with free srvc unti 50K)
Tinted windows
Full wrap clear bra
Side and rear sunshades

hmmmm..... plus pretty much everything else you could get on this thing at the time.  The original sticker (which he still has) was just a hair under 58K.  I got it for well over 20K less than that.  I think I did good.

Dam... I am not going to be able to sleep for the next couple of weeks or so. :'(

I have little flip down hangers in my trunk that you can hang bags (like plastic ones from the store) on....they're AWESOME. Totally worth owning the car.

Geesh.. I wonder if my '04 Passat had them.  I can't even remember.  Then again, I can't remember if my '01 A4 had them either.  The mind is a terrible thing to lose.

Nope, it didn't, or it shouldn't have. Only the most recent gen Audi's and Passat have them. I don't believe the B6 A4 came with them, but they fit the same since it is still mostly the same car. So i know some folks have purchased and installed them. Theya re really nice.

Anyway, enough about bag holders. That car is beautiful, I am happy you were able to find the one you wanted.

You have a PM Jon....


BTW... I am still learning about this car and its features.  Can anyone tell me what in the world is inside this armrest?  Obviously the car is not in my possession yet so I don't have the manual to look at.  Any insight would be helpful... just curious at the moment.
