A fully loaded 1.8T (5-speed) with metallic paint would invoice at $25552,
including the $500 delivery/prep.  5% over figures in at $26829.60.  That's
a $1277.60 profit for the dealership.  Too much in my opinion.  I think if
you shop around and are a good bargainer, you should be able to get them
down to about $750 over.  I got my 96 A4Q 2.8V6 for about $180 over invoice,
but I worked them *hard*.  Good luck.
