Default Who will buy at MSRP?

Looks like you'll have to pay MSRP for the C7 until at least the Spring of 2014. I nicely loaded 2LT will probably sticker at 70k+. Any early adopters up for this?

I hope so. I believe they are asking MSRP now. You can bet your local dealer, with a small inventory, will hold out.

I bought my 12 1LT for 39k. I figure a 14 2LT will run around 62k. Thats a huge difference.

Would like to consider one but not at MSRP. I can wait.

No MSRP here*

Not in a rush to spend more than needed.
Patience pays off.

*Unless I lose it when I see the car in person and can't control myself.
it's possible.

I don't get it.

What valid reason would anyone pay MSRP for anything, let alone anything over MSRP especially for a car that is most likely your second car.

It must be the.....I got to have it factor or look what I have and you don't.

Never have paid MSRP or over and never will.

The only way I buy a car is 1k or less over invoice. Period. I got the cash, I make the rules or I wait.

Lots of folks will pay MSRP. Do you remember the Chrysler PT Cruiser? That car had an MSRP of $18,000, and they were so popular dealers couldn't keep them in stock. They were getting $20,000 to $21,000 for them.

Look at the hottest video games fly off the shelves at $59.00, when everyone knows that 3 months later that same game will be $29.00.

The latest fastest video cards sell for $500 when first released, then drop back to $350 a year later.

There is always a market for people who want what they want, and want it NOW!

Not in the first few months. I remember getting my 05'C6 about 14 months after they were first out. I only got 5Gs off MSRP.

When the C5 came out most dealers sold them at list price for the first 4 years.

The 2006 ZO6 was list or above

The 2009 ZR-1 was $25K above

We are spoiled here because of our sponsor dealers give great deals. How many people go into dealers to buy new Vettes and the price is thousands more than our sponsors? Not all dealers are in the habbit of giving Vettes away. I had one dealer tell me he gives his price and people say I can buy it at---- for less. He says go 200 miles away and buy it but don't bring it here for warranty work and expect a loaner car etc. Also my customers come first for service and you will be at the end of the line.
