I received no slack on prices for extra's such as Quattro
but did receive 1500 customer credit before we started
talking turkey.

Currently have a little over 6000 miles and ZERO problems!
This is my first new car, the only other cars I've drivin
have been Volvo's (81 GL,86 740 GLE,92 760 Turbo) the
A4 drives more confidently and solid that all those
cars even when they were brand new.
