Good deal on an 08 535.

I was considering an Audi S5 for about a month now. I am pleased to announce I am staying with the roundel.
Anyway, my dealership has an alpine white with dakota leather 535. The car has sport/prem/paddles/heated seats. $58,075 sticker. I have sent 2 pm's to Jeff at Eurobahn regarding the SSTT from my 335 being applicable to the 5..Any ideas? Also I have found out my BBS's will not fit like the dealer said.
My guy has tax credits for about another 3 weeks so I have to move if I can unload my 335. Tax credits and $1500 off ='s
36 month lease. 12K miles per year. 2K down..yeah right...$784 a month.

The seats and extra roominess have got me hooked. Putting clients in the 335 can get a little cramped. I have looked at spoilers that would soop it's appearance up a bit and add some nice 19" wheels and tint.
Can any one help me as to ideas of what the market is bearing on an 07 335 sedan sport/prem/paddles, clean/pampered and 16,000 miles?
Edit. I checked autotrader.com and they range from 38-44K...big gap.
Thanks for any constructive comments.

Well, if you're obsessed with buying only new cars, you're going to have to pay that premium the dealer is offering. $57k sounds right on for a 08 535.

If brand spankin new isn't your obsession I would consider an 08 535 with less than 5k miles. It will have lost about $4k in value when its driven off the lot for the 1st time. It also starts to lose roughly $1k per 1k miles.

Look into it.

You are on target. They look great right out of the box. The only draw back I see is the ability to up the ponies so easily with the N54. But yes, I went and looked at them this morning.
Going to build one right now in fact.

Stick with the 535 and put a procede on it for $1300 and it might be faster than the 550 for less money.

good option. To clarify, the 535 engine is the twin turbo then?
