Need advice asap pleeease!

Ok here's the dilemma! I am trading in my Challenger for a 1lt Camaro and I need help choosing which one. It's come down to 2 IOM camaros so here are the details.

1LT for 21k with 16,000 miles, sunroof that's it.

1LT WITH RS package, 4,200 miles, auxiliary box, matching dash kit and the person actually mod it to look like the SS with that vent on the hood. (not sure what it's called). I've talk them down to 24k

What do you guys think? I can either save 3k and mod it myself and not pay interest also might end up being cheaper than 3k at the end. The RS has lower miles with at least 1,000 in accessories if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks guys

Get the RS unless you just don't like that apearance package. It has considerably fewer miles and they are still asking for about what I paid for my LS

RS and the front SS thing is referred to as the mail slot. Good luck.

RS. Sunroofs is the only thing that I like about the first and I've heard they sit so low that if you are tall (or have a fohawk like me) it will touch. Actually glad I didnt get the sunroof on mine. Good luck.

Neither, buy a new one so you know what your getting. I wouldn't want one that someone modded. You don't know if they knew what they were doing.

Thanks for all the replies guys! Here's what I left out. If I go with the RS the dealer is giving me 21k for my car and I'm gonna be 3,000 upside down because I still owe 24k. If I go with the non RS the dealer is willing to pay off my car!! I'm calling BS but I'll find out tomorrow. I'm calling BS because a brand new SE with all the rebates ends up being around 23k so why would the dealer pay 24k just to have me buy their car? Ya feel me

If you can talk down the other one that is 21K then get that one otherwise get the RS one. P.S. I have 27,750 miles on mine already. Boy do I love to drive it!

The trade in price means nothing. You should have found out the straight sale price of both cars first and then say to the dealer well what would you give me for my car if I traded. Then you will find what your really getting for your car. Why do you think the first thing out of a dealers mouth is "Are you trading anything?".

True but it's only the trim dash kit and the auxiliary box so I doubt he can mess anything up....

Please elaborate. What do you mean? How many ways can I go about getting a trade in value with my car?

If you go into a dealer and tell them you have X to trade and not get the straight sale price first, then they hold all the cards. Because, they take the mark up on the car their selling and figure that in on the trade to make it look like your getting more for your car than you really are. That's why if you get the best straight sale price first, in others words tell them your not trading anything, and then ask what would the deal be if i trade , you will get closer to what they are really giving you on your car. Also on new cars, don't let them include the factory incentives on the deal because they should be over and above the deal.

It's too late for you now with this dealer, they already know you want to trade your car. So, you will never really know what your getting for it. I can promises you though your not getting more than what the car is worth. All they are doing is adding the markup on the car your buying to what they are giving you to make it look that way.
By the way dealers hate it when you do this but tough cookies. You need the best deal and their trying for the most profit. That's just the way the game works.

Neither dont buy it used get a 2010 at a good price. Modded front end or did he get into an accident and never reported it? One may never know. I could have got a used 2lt or Lt but with a car like this modding is to commen. Again this is just My opinion.
