Looking for a new VW Passat from Germany/France

Hi

Where would you look for a brand new VW Passat from Germany? Are the new cars all in the internet browser or do you know some good VW dealer to ask for a quote?

Like this one (from French site, German dealer)

If you're working in a decent sized company ask your HR if they have any fleet discounts (these can be circa 10-15%) which can be stacked on top of any other current discounts e.g. Euro Bonus. It could be the case that the saving potential from looking in DE/FR is not as great once you've taken everything into consideration.

Re: Looking for a new VW Passat from Germany/France

I'm in the same position and after some research it worked out cheaper to buy a car here. As an example: BMW offered me 16% Euro discount and 14% company discount. They did tell me that they would offer anyone walking off the street 16% Euro discount and an added 7% dealership discount. This is on brand new cars. Not sure about VW, but Mercedes has similar deals. Some more info is here:
New car vs used car
Let me know how you get on!
