You used beer, so it's a Hoppy Prius?  Or is it Harley Partner?

Never drink and drive with the vehicle...  It's Heinz HP Sauce of course.

This is an English breakfast I can get behind:



I would even try it with some HP sauce.

Must be something about this time of year.  I just traded in the 2014 Blue TDI in on a 2015 Black TDI. They have an extra 10 hp this year at lower rpm. Not much more in changes. Just new car smell. I was going to get the brownish red color to match the new 2012 Concours I just got, but they went to a brighter red.




I just traded my 2013 black Passat in for a 2014 blue Passat. The black one matched my 2011 and the blue one matches my 2010. I never thought about it until it was in the garage. They are giving great deals on these right now. And the trade in value on the tdis are great. They updated the 2014s with standard backup camera and an Onstar type setup for VWs.

What model did you get and how much did they give you on your trade, if you don't mind me asking?

I have been buying the base model Passat tdi se 6 speed. Right now they are offering $4000 off sticker price. $24,200. I could've gotten one for $23,880, but they didn't have the right color in that package. So I got the splash guards, wheel locks, cargo organizer, and first aid kit for the extra $300. He got my trade to  $20,800. 0.9 % for 5 years again.
The new cars only have one scheduled service included. The last 2 offered two. I picture the tires needing replacement at about 30,000 miles and have yet to get up that far to know for certain. I also haven't bothered trying out the Auto transmission because of the higher cost for 40,000 mile service. I just haven't been that high on the clock yet. I have seen these used with 130,000-150,000 miles and they are still pricing them over $10,000.
I wish they offered the Fender sound system on the base models. It is the only option that I would really like to have added on.

Sounds like you got a good deal! I've had the dealership where I bought my Jetta contact me twice, telling me how badly they need my used car and would I please trade it in on a new car.

I also got the splash guards, wheel locks, cargo organizer, and first aid kit with my Jetta. I just spent $15 buying the lug nut kit to do away with the wheel locks. Those things are a pain in the butt! When was the last time you've heard of someone ripping off the wheels from a VW? If you misplace the 'key' to those locks you will be in a serious bind!

That's a gimmick, they were telling me that on my 05 Prius, and it had nearly 300k miles on it..  Yeah, right.  You need that car badly.

Good idea on the lug nuts. I do have the regular ones. I might do that at some point. The low mileage tdis are wanted, because no one trades them besides me.
