As I write this, Bomnin has 111 Corvettes. You can pretty much get one configured the way you want. Take an example- base 1LT manual with no options stickers for $56,590. Bomnin lists it for $43,867. Add back in the $3K loyalty bonus, the rip off $895 doc fee and the $398.75 electronic fee and you get $48,160.75. That is 15% off the list without any negotiation. Now how does that compare with the forum dealers?

For Florida buyers who are within driving distance to Bomnin, you also save the cost of PDI and paperwork transfer at a Florida dealer near them if they order one through a forum dealer, which I know from experience runs around $300 to $600; or the cost of shipping the car from an east coast forum dealer down to Florida which would be over $1K.

But the biggest advantage IMHO is the peace of mind of being able to thoroughly inspect your choice before you pay for it. I personally don't like plunking down that kind of money sight unseen.

In every high school, nationwide, there should be 2 classes required to graduate.

1. "How to buy a car." and

2. "How to buy a house."

It's plain to see, based on the above posts, that many here are clueless, and they've likely been clueless for a long time.

Worse yet, you are "teaching" the younger generation with ignorance. They REALLY going to be taken advantage of.

EDIT~
Make that 3 classes

Add "Retirement plans" to that list.

and let's not even muddle the thread further with taxes...

I always opt for that. I don't believe there is any fee for the electronic title.
Or for $2.50 if you are willing to have the DMV mail it to you

I drove there from Orlando,4 hour trip when I was looking to buy and I was there 7 minutes and was the worst experience ever. So I left and it was a wasted trip

I don't drive that far for service. I already said it is not practical. I bought the car in Maryland and take it for service locally, but not to a forum sponsor reputable dealership because there aren't any that I know of around NE FL.

North Carolina is as bad as Florida, $900.00 doc fees are the norm in NC.

When I bought my C7 in 2014 they were hard to get because of allocations and demand especially down here in SW Florida. We have some good dealerships but one problem is there's a lot of people down here who don't really shop for price and are willing to pay those dealer's fees. I ended up going to an out of state forum sponsor dealer and they not only gave me a discount for being a forum member but we worked out that the car was actually shipped to my home. I had talked to several local dealers about a "courtesy delivery" but they declined them. Why, I don't know because they get paid the prep price and down here some also charge their dealer fee too! What's really interesting is one forum dealer has a dealership down here too but you cannot even come close to getting the same deal there as their out of state store. Crazy huh?

Starting at 43k and ending at 48k? That’s en expensive way to waste an afternoon.

Wow, $398.75 electronic fee, that's a new one on me. Just another reason I have come to hate trying to by a new car. Last year I purchased my '18 from Kerbeck and it was one of the best transactions I have ever done. No nonsense, great price, just the quoted price and whatever the transfer fees amounted to. They will be my first stop if another new one comes into the picture for me.

Just go to the top three vette dealers and you can skip the games.
