On the first call I made I found a dealer with a SIM 2LT RS Auto Black Leather interior (w/o sunroof :()..I said what the hell I can live without a sunroof even though I have never had one...And also SIM was my second choice anyhow....So while talking to the dealer further he said the car was on the showroom with only 8 miles on it...I said ok and then proceeded to asked him the million dollar question, "Is there a dealer Mark-Up on that car?" And then came out the magic words, "No, we are not selling this car over MSRP"...I told him to put the SOLD sign on that car and I will be there shortly...I left work immediately and rest was history.






REVIEW:

Pros: For a V6, that car is fast as hell. If you step on it off a ramp that thing takes off. The components in the car are somewhat user friendly. The handling is amazing. The sound system is vicious and the Boston speakers are very loud with nice bass. The ambient lighting on the doors is tight but I thought it was going to be on the dashboard too. Oh well...The seat are comfortable and hugs your body like a sports car should. The HID lights are very bright and the Halos are the icing on the cake. The gas milage is amazing. As fast as I was driving last night that needle should be at least under 3/4 of the tank. But the needle is barely off of Full.

Cons: The roof and all the windows are very low. The backseat is a joke just like the back seat of the Lexus SC and the Drop-top Jag. There is no on/off switch for the foglights (they are your daytime running lights). The rear window is smalls so be careful backing up. Especially in parking garages. The brake dust can become a headache because I have alot of it already. The tires on the RS Package are in fact summer tires, so now I'll have to pay $200+ per tire in the Fall to get some Toyo AS tires. Lastly, be prepared to be followed by the police. They followed me all morning on my way to work. One held up traffic to talk to me. Crazy I know.
Congrats! Looks like the stars were all aligned for you that day! Thanks for the Pros/Cons, too. Very helpful for those of us in-waiting . . . BTW, how's she sound?

Manual vs auto

I've noticed too that there are only automatics and also there have only been V6's - both of which are the opposite of what I want.

Since this has turned into a sunroof thread I am surprised by all of the so called tall people complaining that the sunroof option is so undesireable. I am over 6'2" and 200lbs and have no problem with the interior of the car. Yes, the reverse mohawk is awesome, and there is slightly more head room (emphasis on slightly). I can't imagine that it is really that big of a deal for anyone 6' 2" or under that isn't wearing a helmet. :troll:

do you really need "winter tires" for the rs package?

You are so right my friend. I got 3 speeding tickets and one for reckless driving in 2 months of getting this car. I never had any tickets in my life and i wasnt even going wild with the car. I swear if cops can give you tickets for sitting in the red light with this car, they would.

hate to rain on your parade but there was a dealer markup, the supplier price will be arround $1000 cheaper than MSRP on that car.

You could have talked him down a few hundo at least, tell them you'll just go order it from someone else and that you don't mind the wait. Then see what other dealers will give you

since someone has resurrected this thread from the dead I will say that I am 6'-0" and I have little headroom. This is with the seats all the way down. The only option I have is to tilt the back of the seat which I don't like.

It's all about your torso length (upper body).

the best thing to do is to sit in one before buying.

do you really need "winter tires" for the rs package?

The RS package comes with high performance summer tires. Those would not work well in the winter. Why not get winter tires for the RS package?
