    Hello everyone, I recently joined the site and am amazed at all the support that the members here provide for each other. With that being said, I'm looking to buy a new 2016 B5 blue A8 Scat Pack Shaker with all options. Any leads or advice is greatly appreciated. The best deal I've found thus far is for one without a sunroof for $41,995. Thanks again and Merry Christmas

    Well you might find a B5 blue Scat Shaker, but it would have to be on the lot or in someone's inventory. They no longer produce this color. So you should start searching in your surrounding area, the sooner the better if you have your heart set on that color. I wanted this color also in June. Couldn't find the exact Scat that I wanted, so I switched to Go Mango and the rest is history. Search your local dealers first and good luck!!!!
    I like the one you already found, sounds pretty good and I am not a fan of sunroofs, so I say go for it! The price sounds very fair. Merry Christmas!

    Yeah, I have checked locally but so far no B5 blue Scat Shaker. Found one in Fla but called and getting different info depending on who I talk to regarding their sales policy to out of state buyers. Ever hear of a new car dealer that only sells cars to residents in their respective state? I have never heard of that.

    Without doing the research myself that sounds like a great deal . I am also not a fan of sunroofs . Ring and tell them you want to buy and have cash , then you'll no if it's doable .:):)

    You may have to go with another color, I am not a fan of the sun roof but that's me, good luck on your find and the sooner the better because these cars are soooooooooo much fun to drive.

    I had no drivers license , no PA I'd , no social security number and a zero credit rating when I bought mine . I find it hard to believe they can't get it done .

    Me too. I'm getting shady feelings about this dealer. Online reviews vary pretty wildly. I'll keep searching for the right B5 Scat though.

    Wow, people are with me with the - no sun roof. I opened mine once. I prefer a dark cabin. Your dealer is playing games. It makes no difference what state you reside. Find a senior sales person and they can do anything you want. REMEMBER, you always have the upper-hand, show them green and they will pull out the Bic pen.

    Yes I agree. Not sure what's going on there. I thought dealers wanted to sell cars and I'm ready to go. I just want a no b.s. fair deal. Strange 'cause I was willing to pay their asking price but was pushing for the Dodge Iifetime warranty.

    I tried buying a loaded scat /shaker - sunroof and couldn't get anywhere near that number in Jan 15 . I'd go after it for sure if it's the car you really want , make them sell it to you . Don't pay more and go after what you want just be persistent .

    What does everyone think about $43,000 for a loaded 16 Scat without the Shaker option? Best I'm finding for a loaded SPS is around $45,000. Any insight or opinions are appreciated.

    you need to go and do your best at talking to them face to face walk out a few times give them something to think about. they will always come down on a price. not to say 45000 is not a bad price but its up to you, what you feel good about. good luck
