3K Over Sticker

6335 Views 68 Replies 35 Participants Last post by  Badass69
I have the opportunity to buy a Hellcat at 3K over sticker. Would anyone take the offer. Used hellcats are selling in the Dallas used car market for 68-72K used, or at least I am told that.

i will start a part time job for free and keep track of each purchase for you.

are you saying you dont see any posts of msrp purchases or people finding a car sitting on the lot for msrp waiting for a buyer daily here? (i think i saw 2 posts yesterday of people giving opportunities for msrp for free)

the main thing i keep telling people is to stop paying ADM.....this will bring the price down for everyone
Huggy, unfortunately the vast majority of those paying over MSRP don't know about you and your crystal ball....or this forum. I have seen guesses that forum members represent anywhere from 4-8% of all HC orders. We can take a moral stand to not pay over MSRP, unfortunately most of the folks who will pay over didn't get your "memo"...lol

I am not rich by any means........But I paid 5K over in SoCal because by the time I paid for all of the costs associated with going out of California to get one at MSRP I spent that 5K............Any more than 5K I would have not purchased the car from a local dealer.........
5K over in CA is a fair deal at current market conditions. 7.5K over on the lot would be so also.

Stop backtracking, changing your stance, and using sarcastic jokes to explain why you are not going to provide evidence to back your claim.

No, I do not see people buying cars off lots for MSRP here. Orders potentially in transit, or taken potentially from someone else, are not buying off the lot. And no, those aren't coming daily either. Until you provide evidence, stop with the same old condescending reply for everyone to basically "get off their ass and go find all those MSRP cars on dealer lots."

never said every car will be MSRP......and yes i still think most will be msrp by Summer

seems like 50% are already paying msrp now

when 4,000 are on the street is when i think the market will change......where are we at now???......cant count the 1000 sitting at Brampton or stuck for 4 weeks on a train

how many on the street now?? 2,000??

is it even 2,000?
Picked up mine 2 weeks ago. It was build # 2117. I would think closer to 3K now.

And that was for an allocation and I ordered what I wanted............So I have no complaints for the 5K, it was a fair deal for SoCal...........

Are you buying the challenger or charger?
Challenger...I think it's going to be pretty hard to get a Charger unless dealers are willing to move a Charger order up in front of an older Challenger order...the whole 1/month thing kinda hurts Charger sales (in my opinion). So my statement of 15 people on the list for Tomball and 3 ahead of me with Ron Carter was back in August when I was searching for a place to get in line and that was only Challengers at that time.

Most people can't deal on cars to begin with...... or even try to bother. So really when it boils down to it with a hot item like the Hellcat do you honestly see too many guys getting a deal? Of course not. See with me I hate buying cars or trucks...... but none the less I do have fun with it. I bought 2 brand new pickups over the course of the last year and made the deal on a third for someone else. From MSRP to paid price I was 31%, 39% and then 32 % discount respectively. The 31% and 39% discounted trucks are mine. Other than the 39% truck the other 2 were high dollar loaded rigs with an easy sale market. None the less I play my game and get what I want for the dollar I want. Friends and acquaintances bought similar trucks at the same time and paid quite a bit more than I did for a truck that cost even less....... Why? They don't want to do any leg work nor do any dealing. In and out..... wham bam and pay whatever the salesguy tells them that the price is! Nope..... I go off of invoice price ( that generally I just make up in my head because depending on price it is $5-6K lower than sticker), add in the discounts and then knock another $3-4K off for good measure. I posted my prices paid on other forums and most of the guys don't believe me which is just fine in my opinion.

So what's my point here? I won't get any huge discount on a Hellcat, it just won't happen. That said...... since I obviously can play the game, I will get a car for MSRP or less.... because I am willing to do what it takes to get it. I run my own company, manage my employees, do all their paperwork and operate still as a field tech myself..... and I have time to do this. So anyone does..... lol. Like Huggytree has mentioned..... if you once offer and make no effort, you will pay markup. I don't overpay for anything regardless of what it is. With vehicles that drop like a rock in value in the first 3 years especially....... no thanks.
