An update on my friend whose brand new ordered-from-Audi 2001 180TTq's
fender was fixed with bondo, then repainted AND had a headlight cover
housing replaced as he also discovered. It was sold to him as new (along
with it recently needing a nose repaint)...
Screwus actually admitted fixing the TTq now, after previously denying
all knowledge until their independent bodyshop fessed up.
So what they offered was the following: $1000 in cash or $35000 for a
new 225 TTq. He was considering the new 225q, test drove it, etc. The
blue book on a 2000 180TTq with 7500 miles is 29,380. His is a 2001 and
has 5000 miles. They offered $28000 on the trade! Their reasoning for
the price discrepancy:
his is blue so isn't worth as much.
I'm sure he's going to take the $1 grand and run, if they honor their
Oh, and apparantly the VT law is that it has to over $988 in damage, and
