Default Picked up my new TDI today.

I got a TDI loaner when my 3.0T was being worked on and liked it so much I went back and bought one.

Thanks.

No, it has the black interior. I never liked that nougat interior.

I do like the black headliner - it is a must for me.

Very nice. You traded a '13 3.0T for a '14 TDI?!?!?! Now there's a man who likes his A6. Chapeau! And enjoy!

Yes I did. I don't keep that long and wanted something else.

I think I'll be keeping this one.

Also traded my wife's 2012 A4 on a new 2014 A4. It's all about being happy.

Agree, I think the TDI is a perfect blend of luxury, sportiness and efficiency....plan to keep this for 5 years until I turn 50, and then it's time for a "mid-life crisis" car

We just traded my wife's 2012 Honda Pilot Touring for a 2014 ML350 Bluetec - once you get the "diesel bug", it's tough to go back to gas. I wanted to stay in the Audi family with her new car, but didn't want to wait another year+ for the new Q7 (TDI) to come out and the Q5 TDI was a little smaller vehicle than we wanted/needed. Very happy with the ML, but anxious to see the new Q7 when it comes out (late 2015?).

Yes I go through cars on a regular basis. Trucks are on the list as well. I get bored and want something new. It's tough to always be getting new cars.

Dont you lose a LOT with depreciation? Or is there some trick that I should know to minimize loss when trading in 1 to 2 yr old cars?

I was talking to the Sales Manager at my dealership the other day when picking up my car from service and he mentioned he was getting a new A7 under a "1-year employee lease deal"...sounds like what DSL PWR needs.

No I don't. I just know how to work the deals and get the numbers I want.

Rebates, incentives, and dealer loyalty help as well.

I send my dealer new people on a regular basis.

It's all about working the angles.
