How long is the wait to do my car?

Great job. One of the best anonymous great cars ever brought to market. I drove one from Las Vegas to San Diego and I really liked it. I would have been happy to keep on driving. My wife said that she felt comfortable driving it right from the start. It's too bad that VW did not do the Toyota thing and start a new brand name. The car certainly earned it.

Make me a reasonable offer and I'll deliver it this weekend! My car is always kept to 90% of this standard. I just made a big push to get it ready for Bring A Trailer. We'll see if they select my car for auction.

I've got some free time, bring it by! I've got basically the entire Griots and Meguiars Mirror Glaze lines on hand.

speaking of offers, would $10k be in the right neighborhood?

Original MSRP on this car was

If you look carefully in the center trim, you will see the motorized panels that move to reveal the vents. The A/C in this car is exceptional. Puts much newer cars to shame.

They do have another brand name, this car is a Bentley, and VW owns Bentley.
