So... I decided I was going to buy a GT-R today because I was bored, I saw that Glendale had a couple 2014's on the lot which meant they'd be cheap. So why not, I go in to make a deal.
One of the 2014's happened to be sales manager demo with 6k miles on it, perfect. Means it'll be really cheap, right? Car has been on the lot since 2013 and has been beat on by the manager -- I don't care, I'm going to beat on it more which is all I wanted it for. A "just because" boredom toy.
They keep trying to run my credit before giving me a price, they claimed sticker on it was $120k (LOL it was a premium edition, 103k), they said they'd do $95k on it.
I offered $75k.
This made the sales manager come speak with me, seeing it was his car. He kept insisting that I run credit first for $100k and see if I'm approved before negotiating.
So I tell him give me a price and then we can close the deal and run credit, he said well we're not going below $95k.
The car is 3 years old. It has 6k miles. Used '14 GT-R's are $75k.
My boy pulled up a used '14 with 5k miles at a Mitsubishi dealership two blocks away for $78k and the guy lost his shit.
Still wouldn't go below $95k so I laughed and walked.
The best part is, the reason he didn't want to sell it is because it's his car, so long as it doesn't sell. But if he sells it it's no more GT-R, now he drives a Sentra. Guess I wouldn't want to sell it either.
Wonder how the owner of the dealership would feel about that though. Hilarious.
