Order NOW - $500 over INVOICE or GMS/GSU

Did that get your attention? This is my way of giving back to the forum members here. Props to Mac1 for directing me to them. Funny part is my "winter ride" Impala was initially bought from them...


I am fully serious. As many of you know, I was the first to order at the 2nd largest dealer in the country. At MSRP. I have found a local dealer with plenty of allocation left who I placed a new order with since he was accepting GMS/GSU where my original dealer was not.

I got the new order pricing in writing and so did a friend I brought along who also placed a GMS deal this morning. There's a total of only four Camaros sold at this dealership so far including ours. The fifth spot is reserved for Mac1 here. His original allocation was 31. That leaves 26 in my book.

So here it is:

Joe Basil Chevrolet
Transit Road
Depew (Buffalo), NY
(716) 684-6800


You need to speak directly to Steve Dietzen, new car manager.
Steve's Direct Number-> (716) 206-1796

his email is the easiest way to get a hold of him and is as follows:

steved@joebasilchevrolet.com

FYI- Steve is usually off on Fridays

Good news for you - saving money is a plus.
I already have that deal as my dealer was always willing to honor GM discounts and incentives if available.
I would jump on board if i didn't though as it will save around $2500 or so.

You got the idea...

$90 one way flight from Miami to Buffalo. Then you get to slum it driving back to Florida in your new Camaro.

Hell, if the flight isn't while I'm at work I'll even be willing to pick up whoever comes in and drive them to the dealership. It's about 15 minutes from the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport (BUF). I would be more than happy to do that for members here if it fits into my schedule.

If the flight comes in while trm0002 is at work or otherwise tied up - I'll pick you up and take you there. It is a fantastic deal and a great dealership. If you call Steve he WILL sell for invoice!

That is GREAT news!
I just emailed him.
Hopefully I can make a clean switch (or get my existing order at a lower price)
I was driving to the midwest from MD so North instead of West is fine with me. lol
Thank you!

No, not which is higher. If you qualify for GMS, that's obviously the lowest. Those that qualify for supplier he's guessing at this point will be equivalent to $500 over invoice; so for those that don't qualify for either discount, that's where the $500 over invoice comes into play. If it turns out supplier is lower than that, Steve will give you that price; otherwise you get the $500 over invoice.

You and me both but how much farther can it really go when Basil is willing to blow out all their stock at GMS or GSU or $500 over invoice- whichever is better for you depending on what you qualify for ?

They make a lot more than that. Remember holdback? 3% on a Camaro- about $1000 a car on a 2SS. Bottom line, we're friggin ecstatic at $500 over invoice compared to what's going on elsewhere, and they still make $40,000-$45,000.

That is a win/win scenario in anybody's book.

Deal was at MSRP. At the time, seemed pretty fair compared to what was going on elsewhere. Actually, if I hadn't come across Basil on an out of the blue post by another gentleman here, Mac1, I'd still be happy at Paddock. They really didn't do anything wrong; just won't honor the discounts. Their loss. It'll be interesting to see if they refund my deposit or not. I did sign the same thing you did I assume- "non-refundable". We'll see how reputable they are at this point when they have no exposure from me canceling the order. I could understand a month from now when the order is already in the production system (hopefully) that they could get "stuck" with the car. But now? Not much I can do if they don't refund it other than spread the word. And boy do I have a lot of friends to spread it to...

Unless you're eligible for GMS (employee), my guess is the $500 over invoice is going to be pretty damn close to supplier, maybe even a bit better. Neither of us are going to beat that deal ANYWHERE right now.

P.S. you wouldn't be giving up too much of a spot in line considering as of when I left today you'd be the second V6 order at Basil.

I'll be putting on just more than that in miles.

No, you can't do 1,179 miles in one day...so, you'll have to make it 2 DAYS! Two full days of people STARING at you as you drive it all the way home!
