gfxdave99 Posted April 27, 2005 Share Posted April 27, 2005 05 GT LTD Sedan, Black, with the alarm/mirror and they chromed the wheels. Sticker on it was 30,100 or so.. KBB invoice is 27,052. They are asking 27571. However they are charging $999 for the wheel chroming. Which I know isnt cheap to have done. So at being charged sticker for the bling bling It's 500 under invoice. The positive is though that they are giving me $500 more then what they should on KBB for my Trans Am trade in (had a TA and a TSX), which while I could probably make $400 or so bucks selling it (vs what i owe) myself I have to finish doing all the nit picky little touch up stuff to sell it vs losing 400 on it and just trading it in and being done with it. So the numbers work out as follows 27,571.00 Price -9600.00 for my TA 17,971.00 taxed sale +1216.78 tax +55.39 doc fee +80.00 Transfer Plates =19,323.17 OTD plus TA payoff +10494 Payoff =29817.17 OTD Taking into concideration that I will be able to get a pro-rated refund on the extended warranty that I bought on the TA that should easily bridge the gap between the payoff and the trade-in. I qualified for the one below the lowest apr which is 4.9 for 60mos which is still pretty good which with 2k down still keeps me around the 500/mo I was looking for. If I didnt trade the TA in and tried to sell it myself I wouldnt get the money back on the warranty and would have to deal with fixing the little paint scratches etc etc and wouldnt be garunteed that I would make anything more off of it then my payoff. As well Since I woudlnt be trading it in I would be paying another $600 in sales tax. Which is in theory the most I could make off the car. So with all those numbers and figures Good Deal/Bad Deal? I'm pretty sure they did the chroming on the wheels in their in house body shop which means I'm pretty sure they didnt pay 999 to get it done. Would I be unreasonable to call tomorrow and tell them if they throw in the chrome wheels for free they have sold a car? Thoughts el rapido please as I will be deciding Wednesday.
