Holy crap. First I saw a 2LT Z51 coupe for $85k. I saw it had on the options/mark up $10,000 for market adjustment. STILL???
So I talked to a salesman and he said they are still asking for $10k market adjustment AND getting the $10k on the coupes. He said for the convertible they'll do 'just' MSRP. Can't believe it's almost August and they are still getting $10k above MSRP. Who is paying this??? I guess many! He also said that the coupes are more $$$ on market adjustment as they are harder to find and more wanted.
Wow....guess I'm still in shock by this given the time of year!!
I have been to many dealers and had them ask over MSRP
But that does not stop you from offering under MSRP. They will always accept an offer with a deposit. Last year I wanted to order my wife a 2014 BMW 435I conv and I was told $5,000 over MSRP.
I offered a firm $3,000 under MSRP with a $2,500 cash deposit.
The salesmen told me it was a waste of time. It was a no trade cash deal and after 3 hours of going back and forth, including taking my check back and walking to my car, They accepted my order and I had the first 435I in S Florida.
I was a dealer for 25 years and never get tired of the negotiating. My wife is now happy and that equals to a happy me.
