Default Newbie needs advice on 05 A8 purchase

I'm getting ready to buy CPO 2005 A8. I've driven a few and am getting close on one. I'd like your reaction to the following:

This is a Black exterior with Alacantra interior
About 29.6K miles
Cold Weather package
Convenience Package (I think that's what they call it) - includes parking sensors, sun shades and smart key.
Bose Stereo
Bluetooth connectivity
Pre-wired for Satelite radio
18" wheels

The car looks very clean inside and out.

They're down to $32,900 at this point.

What do you all think? I may be able to push a little harder but how does the deal sound?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

If it's within your price range, I would jump on it. Sounds like a sweet car.

Default go for it

Yeah, this is a good deal, I just got one for that price certified pre-owned including all the taxes and extra dealer tack-on fees, with 33K mi, -mind you mine is not the L (long wheel base) and that is specifically why I got it. unless you plan on having a driver and riding in the back full time, don't get the long wheelbase, you will be happier as a driver without it.
