After spending the last decade or so worshipping GTI's, I have joined the FiST movement. It just seems to get the closest to the spirit of the old GTI's that I love, hopefully with a lot less mechanical issues. My price the dealer and I agreed on was $22114 before TTL....so about 23600 OTD in San Antonio, TX I think (technically subject to changes as the current incentive of $1000 cash back expires end of March). The options are Molten Orange, Orange Leather Recaros, and Painted Wheels/Calipers. Fully refundable deposit of $500 placed as well. Opted out of dealer extras. So some questions while I wait an estimated 6-8 weeks to get this car: 1) How did I do on price? I used truecar and also had them match a neighboring dealership's MSRP discount. College Student savings is also factored in. 2) Has anyone used the IUPA discount? Membership is $60/year...not sure of success rates for people who have joined just for the discount- the salesman said it isn't stackable with the College discount? But I'm fairly sure it is. Also I'm still trying to get that $500 private cash certificate in time for the sale. Any tips or are those more of a Fall thing? Thanks!
