Re: Trading in for an SRT8, what to expect???

Another thing, don't tell them you have a trade in until they work the final numbers on the SRT. Right when they are ready to deal, that's when you say, "Oh, I have a trade in."

Re: Trading in for an SRT8, what to expect???

I Clean all the cars for the lot under a contract. Got price and all worked pretty good. Just have no clue what to expect with the srt8. Decided to trade for one befor I spent all my extra money trying to make my current what it's not meant to be.
