I sent them the posting from this forum and got a price for the SE of $23,475 without tax, license and documentation. I think it will be just under $27,000 total. I did have to agree to finance it through VW. Tax is a lot here in CA 9.25%. It was a $10,000 discount from list price of either the SE or SEL. The finance option was worth $3500 of the discount. The SEL does not make sense. If I think of the net price as $17,000, and the SEL as $6,550 more (with tax) that's 38% more.

That's the deal you are looking for. Use their finances, and then write them a check in full in 3 or 4 months, and then get the title in your name.

Jump on that deal, if it makes you happy.

For me, the adaptive LED headlights (I like driving through the mountains at night), lane assist camera (VW undersells the capabilities of the driver assist in this vehicle), and easy to maintain (not cloth!) interior were well worth the price.

I can totally see how that’s not worth it though if you just want the objective best value vehicle. It’s hard to justify that much money purely objectively because the extra stuff is mostly ‘nice to have’. The way I saw it was that I was getting some pretty nice features that tend to be exclude to high ent GTIs and Golf R on a car that was going to cost about $24k all up.

Also the blue stripe in the front grill (?) goes through the headlight enclosure on the SEL and you can’t convince me that’s not pretty enough to spend $6,550 on. :P

When I bought my 2015 SEL, I was able to get $12,100 off of MSRP. That was when MSRP was $37,300. So I paid 25,100, I think , or a bit more. This was in October of 2015. It was worth it, at that price, to me.

Nowadays, as much as I like the new 2019, I just don't feel the upgrade to an SEL is worth it. A golf chassis car is just not worth the kind of money VW is asking, not with the Tesla model 3 out and it's range capabilities. The 2019 e-Golf is half that. Battery is still the most expensive part of the car, and the golf has half the battery of a Model 3.

Was that $12,100 off excluding other government rebates?

I purchased a blue 2019 e-Golf SE w/ DAP on Friday for $22.8k sales price, ~$25.8k out the door after taxes and ~$450 in fees. I wish I had seen this thread first as it probably would have made negotiations a little easier. I also agreed to finance with the understanding that I can pay it down in 4 months time, but only $7k was actually financed, paid the rest in cash.

I was hoping to get an SEL Premium for ~$30k OTD, but it seems like it wasn’t meant to be. The best offers I got on the SEL Premium were in the 29-30k range for the sales price. I basically decided that I would only do the SEL for <4k more than the SE, as it’s not worth an additional 6k to me.

So far I’m really enjoying the car! I’m in Northern California.

EDIT: actual OTD was $25,339 including VPP discount. See below.

At which dealership did you buy the car?

Northern California 9.25% sales tax on 22,800 comes to 24,909. Adding 450 in fees comes to only 25,359.

You’re correct. I was just working off the top of my head, but I just checked the specific numbers. OTD was $25,339 at Serramonte VW, including VPP discount. I had a similar offer from a couple other dealerships in the area.

You have to go to where the deals and the dealerships are with the deals.

Just a fact of life, with VWoA. Gotta work for those deals, unless they happen to show up in your locale. VW is notorious for this.

Been to Las Vegas, San Diego, Salt Lake City, and Denver for lots of savings on every single new VW TDI I've ever bought. Fly in, drive home.
