Dealer's Bogus Charge

Hey!
I'm on the verge of signing the Purchase Agreement and the Dealer slipped in a $195 charge for Shadowmark ATP Vehicle Labeling System.
I checke; it does nothing to reduce Insurance Costs and I'm getting
OnStar anyways, so it seems like a bogus charge to me.

http://www.ctpc.com/ATP/ims2/ims.asp

I'm buying from an out of area dealer (same State) and have the luxury
of considering all the pertinent fees, charges and etc. without the pressure
of being in a Sales Office and no option to rebut. I can take my time to
get this right.

How pissy do I get with the dealer to revise the Sales Doc. and remove the offending charge? I do feel that I am getting a good deal on the vehicle, but I resent being pressured and sold unnecessary goods or services.

GENTLEMEN, START YOUR OPINIONS!

Cheers!

Get "Pissy" with the dealer? IMO Never.

I'm guessing you're referring to the window etch? I wouldn't want it either. As for disputing the additional charge? Simple answer... How bad do you want the car?

You don't have to pay for dealer adds.

Yep, no reason to get pissy unless they get that way first. I have the luxury of working at a dealership where they don't do that kind of thing.

Just firmly tell them that you are not interested in that. Shouldn't be a big deal.

Thanks for the input so far.
Perhaps 'get Pissy' is poor choice of words.

I stand corrected.

Contact CamaroScotty. He'll deliver, and he lived by the motto that MSRP is the maximum you should pay.

Sounds like a cool product, but it doesn't do a damb thing to help you prevent theft or recovery, if your car is stolen or chopped, already too late.

You can get those features added in the aftermarket with a system from Best Buy.
