The Wall: Shappy’s 2012 VW Golf R

Name: Shappy
Location: N/A
What They Got:

2012 VW Golf R

The Ride:

MRSP – $36860
Paid – $34,917 ($500 under invoice via supplier discount)
Terms – 36 months/12K miles per year
Rate – .00164 (VW standard rate, no special rates on the R)
Residual – 55%
Payment – $527.13 (including 6% sales tax)
Due at start – $1432 (no cap cost reduction, first payment, acquisition fee, tag transfer and state fees)

My Take: I think the deal is what it is, so it really comes down to how much you want the car. The Golf R just doesn’t get much of a discount anyway. If anything, your discount is actually darn good considering how new the car is. I wonder if dealers are even discounting this car much nowadays. Anyway, looks to me you got exactly what you wanted and loving every minute of it. 🙂 Congratulations!!! The “unique” factor of this ride certainly does somewhat justify the monthly price tag, even if it may be view to be a bit steep for some.

  1. I’m the first one to admit that they payment is too high…but it is worth it for the smile it puts on my face whenever I drive it!

    • Yeah the payment is comparable to much more expensive models, but there really isn’t another car like that out there. I think I’m going to make a trip out to give it a test drive. LOL

  2. Hey G, I just leased an rx350 with help from your site, and was wondering how i get the deal posted on “the wall”?

    • Mike, just email the pics and the details of your lease to my Wall email…thewall(at)
      Thanks! Looking forward to your ride!
