It's been on AutoTrader well below $52K before February. I believe it was in the $44-45K range on AutoTrader when I first saw it, which I'm pretty sure was back in November or December of 2011. Your salesman was being an @$$. I just bought an A5 and had another couple of bad experiences with salesmen. Car shopping should be fun and guys like that make it a PITA.I looked at that car (not in person) in early February. The salesman didn't want to budge below 52k at the time making it out of my budget... I told him it was over priced too! Guess I was right!
