2021 8th Generation VW Golf


Recommended Posts

@Logtas Precisely PA will not sell the A3 cheap direct at 135k without any trade-in overtrade or expensive at 165k listed. The overtrade scheme is frequently used by PA and C&C to entice buyers. 

For those who are willing to wait, can wait for management 6mths used A3 at a good price next year. 
 

I was enticed by their 13xk launch price but got turned off by their overtrade scheme.

@Logtas Did u actually pay 135k for the new A3 without any trade-in and overtrade? If yes, pls share. 
I was at PA and my SE show me otherwise during the A3 launch. It was base on 165k retail with 30k overtrade by trading in to them as I mentioned. 

You probably didn't get a good se. My cousin bought the older A3 earlier this year during the clearance sale. He got the discounted price (107k+)with so called "overtrade" without trading in any vehicle (new car owner)

@Ceecookie That of course!! PA was clearing stock of the old A3 to make way for the new A3. It is very common for ADs to clear their older model stocks.

If anyone actually bot the new A3 at 135k without any trade-in with overtrade, pls share your details and experience. It will be helpful for those making a decision with 135k budget.

Typically no one will share. 😂

cause SE will say or they assume that they are getting the “best deal” and “only for you price”, so must hush hush and not have others also clamoring for the “best deal”. 
they don’t want to break the SE trust and “sabo” the SE! 😆

@Mkl22 Yes agreed, some buyer will get extra special price which is slightly better than the normal. It will not be nice to break that trust. 

I am sharing my actual experience with my trusted SE from PA. He would had gotten another sales from me if not for PA's company policy on the overtrade scheme on the new A3. 

I understand that PA is advertising the A3 sedan at 135k (Audi Sedan sale), you can approach any of the SE to see if it is an outright sale at 135k without any trade-in overtrade. 🙂

It depends on how punk the SE is

I encountered a SE that required me to trade in (aka lowball) b4 I bought my A6

Told him to F off. Went to another SE, he no problem w direct sale. At the end, it depends on how greedy (they probably get a cut of the trade in) and how keen they are to meet quota

And yes, PA's overtrade is there juz to help cash strapped buyers w down-payment. I didn't take the overtrade n got a straight off discount

seem like a conversation that I had with a fren of mine. He eats alot and always buy the most bang for buck meal, like alot of rice and under 3 dollars. One would imagine him to have a thyroid condition eating like a construction worker.

You are right, one would want quality stuff at the right price. But some goes for things like the largest "real estate" road presence for the same price.

Go figure....

The trend in Singapore is to buy the biggest body with the smallest engine so whenever you see a GTI on the road u know the guy is an enthusiast cos he could have got a lot more sheet metal for the price he’s paying
