  11. Audi is starting a Euro Delivery program

    Anything Auto
    My take on this is that though its a good thing its far below what is offered by the competition. Hopefully its like BMW in the way you can get much bigger discounts than advertised. For BMW there is a different invoice price for ED cars and they dont come out of a dealers allotment so people...

    Classified Archive
