Default Worst sucker sticker of all time?


Not taking "Market Adjustments" into consideration though.

But I thought nitrogen is good for tires, right? You're telling me it's not? I refuse to believe and would totally pay that!

I've seen worse. Some dealers charge a fortune for "paint protection" or "upholstery protection'. Then they require you to have it "updated" once per year and charge you for that as well.

That's a list of things I DONT WANT. The dealer would have to throw those items in free of charge before I would consider purchasing.

That’s amazing. $199 for nitrogen! Wonder if that includes green valve stem covers?

Nitrogen is over rated. Just check your pressure every once in a while.

I don't even pay attention to that crap when I buy a car. Usually the dealer ends up "throwing them in for free" if they want to make the sale. And since I usually buy my cars on the last day of the month, they are happy to oblige.

(This does not include my Corvette. I bought the Corvette at the beginning of the month, and the sales staff where I bought it were very friendly and met me at my price point and didn't try to rip me off with any extraneous "options.")

They did. I think you would want tint in SW Fla. Possibly wheel locks but surely not at these prices. The internet sales manager told me those items are already on the car so I told him to remove them or I would not buy the car.Yes,remove the nitrogen too! He relented but I'm sure some folks will just accept it. They still have 24 2017 MY C7s on the lot.

It's barely noticeable but I surely would not pay for it.

I just took a picture from a vendor site. I would not expect that chrome guard. For a couple of slices of clear plastic, I would expect the price point to be 20 bucks.

A 3K bottle of N2 is $15. You could probably do at least 20 Z tires. And nobody here needs N2.

I agree. I mentioned the fact that they still had 24 on hand and did they expect to drop the prices even further. He said no,the wealthy snowbirds are arriving in Naples and they will sell them soon enough. So I'm keeping an eye on their site just to see how that goes. Mine was gone from the site the following day,a Sunday,so they update quickly. I think the nitrogen is most egregious of all 4 add-ons.

God bless them, if they can get suckers to pay for that. No one on this board, though!

The green valve stem covers are an extra 25.00 a piece.
