Out of state purchasing???

Because of pricing etc., I'm thinking of buying from one of the guys that are on this site. I'm a little nervous as I usually walk into a dealership, sit down, negotiate and buy or don't buy. Dealing with a dealer several states away has me a little ansy.
Experiences, good or bad, please
Thanks

I bought mine from Anna Berringer "little bank robber" at Sparta Chevrolet in MI. I also had your trepidation, but she calmed all my fears and I got a good deal. I wound up paying the local MI tax and when I went to register it here in TX the tax was an additional $1.36 to make up the difference.
I say go for it. I got a better deal than I could have from my local dealers and I also got the color (ABM) that I wanted. Look at it this way. The dealers on here have a reputation to keep with this community. As your local dealer could care less about their reputation on this site. So you should get a much better deal and experience from them. Plus they dealers on here are all Camaro fanatics, so they know how you feel about buying this fantastic car.

I bought out of state. I also went with Anna and the buying experience was very easy and I was completely satisfied.
As already mentioned, you will pay the sales tax based on where you will register the car...assuming your home state.

If you do not plan to go pick up your car, consider the additional cost for shipping into your total cost. Also realize the additional time it may take to get your car to you. The dealer will need a little time to get the car ready and then wait for the shipping folks to come get it.

Out of state can be nice. Mines turning into a little vacation. Taking my dad along for driving duties and we're going to visit several relatives I havent seen in ages on the way home.

probably cant go wrong with most of the dealers on this site. This would not be a place to do any bad business. the internet can be death to people in business and if they are still around... probably all top notch!

I bought mine in NH b/c they had the right color on the lot and they added the MA sales tax in for me
NH is a pretty close drive for me though

have bought 5 of my last 6 cars out of state, I am one that likes a good deal and is willing to travel 2-5 hours to get it. the first time you do it it seems tough but after that it's a breeze and the fact you'll save jack makes it that much easier! Go for it

I bought mine from Becky D @ Rogers Chevrolet outside of Detroit, MI and I was currently living in Connecticut at the time. Everything went really smooth, she honored any discount I was eligible for, and I even got it delivered to a local dealership in Connecticut pretty cheap. Most of the people on this site are extremely reliable so I wouldn't have any worries if you decide to purchase your vehicle through one of them.

I see that you are in California. I believe that all new cars sold to California residents must have "California Emissions".

At one time I considered buying from an out of state dealer, and some of them had cars with California emissions (proably due to some type of dealer trade, Cal. cars can be sold in any state I believe). A dealer in ANY state can order a car with California emissions for you.

Check with any of the several dealers who frequently contribute to this form. They have OUTSTANDING reputations and would be happy to help you get the car you need.

Because of possible registration problems due to California emission laws, I would not randomly choose a dealer who does not participate here.

It was my understanding the Camaro is already 50-state emissions ready. I could be wrong.

We bought from Eric at Classic Chevy in Grapevine, TX. We live in SC. He gave us great service and made our buying experience a real pleasure. Even though it was raining when we got there.

I just bought a 2010 GMC in Wisconsin, live in Michigan. No problem, the dealer issue a temp Wis plate, when my check cleared bank, they sent me the Manufacturers Statement of Origin, took that to my DMV, got plates transferred and paid Michigan sales tax. Paid no taxes in Wisconsin with a Michigan drivers license.

I did not buy in Wisconsin because of price, they were the only dealer that had what I wanted. Local dealer did not want to go get it for me, they played around with me for a week trying to sell me something else and I finally got fed up with the bs and bought it from the dealer in Wisconsin.

It is super easy. I live is South Dakota and bought mine from Becky Doyle in MI. It is being delivered in Pennsylvania. Could have been delivered just about anyplace.

As far as the price negotiation, you should not worry about that. If you get GM perferred, that is about as good as it gets. Send a PM to Becky, Camaro Scotty and Lil Bank Robber on these forums asking for a delivered price for what you want. I am guessing that all 3 of them will beat your local dealer. Plus no pressure to buy special scotchguarded, undercoated, extended warranty lug nuts.

I did the car loan online with Bank of America - financed 100% (no down payment) at 3.78% for 7 years. GMAC is at 4.09% which is also pretty good. Fedex packages and the internet. Easy.

You get some papers from the dealer that you take to the county treasurer at the courthouse. They take a check and give you plates. The treasurer's office and car dealer do this all the time, so it is routine business for them.

The only thing you are missing is the test drive to help you decide on V6 vs V8, cloth vs leather, RS pkg and a few other options.

I bought a Corvette a few years ago in Alantic City. I saved a good deal of $. One word of caution, if you have a trade, be aware that you may be low balled because they know you don't have any recouse other than to drive your trade back home.

WOW, that is going to be an upside down loan for quite awhile.

What does shipping typically run?

Shipping varies GREATLY.

Here are a few examples of cars that I have personally shipped:

Here to Boston: $600

Here to Chesapeake Beach, MD: $600

Here to San Diego, CA: $850

Here to Fernandina Beach, FL: $650

Here to Fayetteville, NC: $500

Hopefully this gives you some idea.

Probably cheaper to buy a plane ticket and drive it home. That's how we did it. $300 for me and the wife, and it was a mini-vacation to boot! Texas is alright!
