Clubsport buy back
« on: 13 October 2021, 23:42 »
Well after it’s 5th visit it was agreed that if it developed any more faults it would go back and be rejected.

Well 2 days later faults on infotainment returned so car will be going back.

Bonus is dealer buying it back hence why I am trying to sell the wheels

Gutted but at the same time pleased as have a few changes in life and it suits those

Can you describe the faults you had?

I suspect they are "normal for the Mk8"... basically there are a raft of things it has problems with from time to time and its all software related and everyone is waiting for the "big fix"... which apparently is coming.

They’re probably happy to buy it back off you with the mark ups at the moment. You’re probably better off selling it privately if you can and making the profit yourself.

Current - MK7.5 GTI Performance Pack, DSG, Black
Incoming - MK8 GTI Clubsport, Reflex Silver, 19” Adelaide Wheels, Winter Pack

Agree dont give them it, do a WBAC on it.

Chatting to an Indi dealer this morning, they sold 4 Audis to Sytner garage this morning for retail who are then adding their markup. They cant get the stock because people arent doing trade ins, obviously due to no new cars. The only stock coming into market is through WBAC and similar.

Blimey, this is tempting me to sell mine.
Just for the novelty of not having my arse ripped out in new car depreciation!  :laugh:
