2013 good deal?

After looking in the classifieds here, and my wife saying no way since she wanted the spot in the garage, she said lets go look at new ones. Question is, We found a 2013 CGM 2ss/rs m6 with the npp exhaust, navigation, and a few other small things. No sun roof. Sticker was 40,500, and we got them down to 37500+ttl. The deal killer was they wouldn't give us what we wanted on the trade. What do yall think? My wife said it was still high, I said the price sounded pretty close to what I thought invoice should be.
Next question is, should I-
a-go back on Monday, take the lowball trade, and drive her home.
b-pass on it, save my pennies, and wait till the supposed z28 comes along.
c-keep driving what i got now and drop the whole idea....

For which price? 37,500? I haven't seen any in that range, and I have been on a whole lotta dealership websites looking at different ones in the Houston area. Its going to be a daily driver, but might see some track time. If i do take it, Im not about road course racing, just straight line, so im not to worried about the mag suspension.

I got mine for $200 above holdback price. That sounds like a great deal for what you are getting.

good price on the car, but are you willing to take a bath on the trade in? when I picked up my camaro I told them I wanted 14,500 for my trade in which was about 500 over the bb value they came back and gave me 14,000 for it. I for one would tell them to stick it depending if it's more than a few hundred dollars difference.

Story is they/we cant get a blue book value since the trade is a 2013, and black book only goes to 2011 (which I knew all of this beforehand). So they were basing it on what other dealers are selling 13s for. A 2012 blue books for +\-31k and they offered 26.5, then came back with 28.5. I said the least I could do was 32. Now if they could split the difference, and throw in a few things I would really be thinking about it..........

Sell your car via autotrader or other outlets. THEN go shopping. Otherwise you're going to take a bath. But if you decide to go for it, at least wash behind your ears.

I passed on the car, so if anybody thought it was a good deal let me know, and I'll try to pm a link to the car. I figure its no big loss, just gonna keep my eyes open for one at the price I want. I thought having a legit buyer ready to go got salesmen all worked up. Next question is, now that with the calendar flipped to 2013 will the prices go down any, go flat, or start going back to msrp? I usually buy on impulse or need, so i have never watched prices based on the day of the month.

If I go this route I lose the tax value of the trade.

Not in my state (Missouri). In Missouri, you have 180 days after the purchase to sell your car and get a tax credit.

You cannot get a 1le for 37,500. I purchased my wife's 2013 BRM for 37,000, and I was given 13,000 for my 2006 2wd silverado.

slim-n-none, you still should be able to get them to lower there price. I was able to get my trade in price increased by haggling with them, told them i was really not intersted in buying and that i had plans which i did to test drive a 2013 5.0, and they asked me what it would take to not do that, and we agreed on my price. The sticker on my BRM was 40,200, with a sun roof.

There is no mag suspension on an SS/1LE. If you're just interested in going in a straight line, having the 1LE package would not be much benefit to you.

MSRP for a 1SS/1LE is about 37.5K, that is what he is referring to.

Yes you can. Just priced one out to 1SS/1LE, $36,535. Not including preferred pricing and USAA and or $1000 GM private offer.

I tried that approach, they didn't wanna budge. I even contacted them Monday and told them If they could do another 500 on the trade, and 500 off the Camaro I could do the deal and be there before lunch. If they called me today and said ok sounds good, come on down, I'd still pass on the deal.

Just got home with my new camaro. I remembered my company deals with another dealer in town, so I called them up to see what they could do for me. They basically had the same car but it had silver stripes (I'm not a fan of the stripes, but what the heck) and a higher window sticker.. They got to the same price the other place gave me, and another 1k on the trade. I'll post some pics tomorrow once I can snag some. The sales guy was awesome, and if its allowed I'll give his name and dealership. I've dealt with no less then 10 salesmen in the past two-three weeks in my search, none of them could tell me if they ran on gas or diesel. He knew the answer to every question, he even knew the difference between the white ss and red ss emblems (I always ask stupid questions to see if the sales person knows what they are selling, kinda like does this one have the ls3 or L99 and he nailed them all.)
