It's def a good deal, but the savings quickly start to offset by higher travel expenses the further away you have to come from to pick it up.
Anyone can get 1% below invoice locally, so in the case of Mtnmerlin, the difference between his local dealer @ 1% below and the dealer in east texas that Shanhuber drools about @ 5.5% below is only $2K. If you have to fly in, then you are now paying for a plane ticket, plus hotel, plus gas to drive back home, plus meals while you're on the road, plus hotels (if you can't drive it in 1 day), etc.
Also keep in mind this is for a higher-end Wk2 with MSRP of almost $50K, so in lesser models with lower invoice the savings are even less. This deal is nowhere near the "many thousands of savings" and merits putting pen to paper and doing the numbers to see if it makes sense to travel hundreds of miles for a few hundred dollars.
