This sounds great doesn't it?
 
Before I agree to this proposition by this dealer I just talked to I wanted to post their deal and see what you all think. It sounds amazing to me, but I want to make sure I am not missing anything and if there is anything I should ask before agreeing.

Dear James

How does this sound?
1. Come in on the 13th and order a new Camaro
2. Leave a non-refundable deposit of $1000 (goes toward the purchase)
3. Let us keep the car when it arrives for 7 days on the showroom floor
4. We will sell it for just $1000 over invoice
This will save you money as it is way below MSRP and we will be able to generate some excitement at the dealership.

If you know you want it and you have funds to buy the car if it is priced above the current expectations, I say go for it! Life is about some risk, and if your know your buying it cool. Make sure to get it in writing, good luck let us know what you do.

Chewy 10-08-2008 11:35 AM

non-refundable isn't too cool...

other than that it doesn't sound too bad - as long as your saving a pretty penny below MSRP (considering they are kinda renting/whoring your car)

GoldFire 10-08-2008 11:36 AM

Well I defiitely plan on getting one and I already have enough saved up to pay in cash as long as it is under $35k, which $1000 over invoice should definitely be I would assume.

GoldFire 10-08-2008 11:38 AM

Think I could get away with them making it only non-refundable once production starts since pricing isn't available yet? Also, how do I make sure nothing happens to the car while they show it off?

Sizzox 10-08-2008 11:38 AM

Sounds good to me but the deposit. But if you truly believe your gonna get this car no matter what i dont see what that problem with that would be. And do make sure its in writting so you can have proof of this agreement. Those are gonna be the longest 7 days of your life waiting for you car is it sits there in a glass showroom haha.

GoldFire 10-08-2008 11:43 AM

Haha yes they will be the longest 7 days. I am sure I will visit at least once a day for the entire week:p

Two things I don't like, "non-refundable" and leave it in the showroom for 7 days. If that dealers showroom is anything like the one I'm going to then no thanks. I personally don't want other people leaning on the car and making small scratches (because of the rivets found on higher quality jeans) plus you never know what someone may do to the car just to spite the dealer.

rlg3 10-08-2008 11:52 AM

perhaps you can get a damage wavier

Lost me at non-refundable, so they expect you to purchase a car regardless of how much it is (you don't know yet) AND without having test drove/inspected it.

Its not like they wouldn't be able to sell it to someone else anyway.

Go somewhere else.

i'd get it in writing that they'll fix any damages that may incure (i.e. scratches)

@ the BMW dealership here, NO one can even get close to the new M6s, the dealers couldn't even get in in the car - except for whomever drove it in, and the drives it out. hopefully they'll protect your 'maro like that

GoldFire 10-08-2008 11:54 AM

I just talked to him on the phone about it, he is talking to his boss about non-refundable being changed to refundable. Also, their showroom is very nice and new, and noone will be allowed to touch it or get near it, for eyes-only. They also said they will put in the writing a damage waver, so it sounds great to me. He said I will get the first one.

GameOver620 10-08-2008 12:12 PM

that 7 day thing sounds a little crazy to me. people will be in and out of car for 7 days. i couldn't do it.

GoldFire 10-08-2008 12:15 PM

No they won't, as I said, they told me it will be roped off and for eyes-only. If they were going to let people get in it and stuff then hell no. They said it won't be touched by anyone but the person who drives it in and then me when I pick it up.

TheMadHatter99 10-08-2008 12:16 PM

I'd accept it ONLY if its changed to fully-refundable and if he agrees to put up barriers around the car and to not allow anyone to sit inside/touch it (and includes a full damage waiver).

Other than that 7 days of publicity for the dealer and a reduced price for you seems like a pretty fair deal. Just hope that MSRP isn't set too close to invoice.

GameOver620 10-08-2008 12:19 PM

he should definitely give you a sweet deal because to make some who has been waiting this long wait another 7 days is tough.

Right, I made sure to emphasize that and he was quite to make sure I knew that nobody would be getting near it. I agree, not knowing the price is sort of worrisome, but looking at other cars that are comparable the MSRP tends to be at least around $1500 - $2000 over invoice.

TheMadHatter99 10-08-2008 12:26 PM

Well so long as it's in writing and you're comfortable with all the provisions then go for it and may I offer a hearty congratulations.

What exactly are you ordering, btw?

If this goes though then I would do it.

playhard67 10-08-2008 12:33 PM

hey. I think I may take that deal to my dealer.

GoldFire 10-08-2008 12:35 PM

I am ordering a 2SS/RS, silver with black rally stripes.

playhard67 10-08-2008 12:40 PM

Is this the same dealer that was recently put on the "Price Gouger" thread? Dick Stanley Chevrolet.

No definitely not. This is one of the other dealers that I contacted.

I'm sure the whole point of them wanting to keep it on the showroom floor for 7 days is so other customers can sit in and touch it.

As I have said multiple times now, the deal was that it would be for eyes-only and nobody would be touching it or getting near it. That came straight out of their mouth. I would not agree to it otherwise and that will be in writing.
