Clock is ticking...finally!

Well I joined this forum in Aug. 2010 and began the research into a future JGC after seeing a commercial in the movie theater of all places of the new JGC! Site is great and the people make it the best forum I've seen which is why I just became a lifer as well today.

I just sold my Infiniti G37S loaded sedan on E-bay last Thursday and it couldn't have been easier. I tried a couple dealers to feel out trades even though they didn't have what I wanted but yeah no way....lol. Best I could get was $24,000 and I ended up getting $28,700 for the G.

I finally found what I wanted (I'll have to start another thread about a bad experience at a stupid dealership that I'll post in the Bad Dealerships thread) after looking for well over a month and we have agreed to the deal. I'll post the parameters of the deal later after I actually pick-up the vehicle. Call me skeptical but it's a great deal and I want to make sure it goes through.

Nevertheless, I'll be picking up my brand new June 22nd build 2011 Mineral Grey/Saddle Overland on September 10th once all the goodies are put on that I ordered. Can't wait!

Re: Clock is ticking...finally!

Nice Job. Post or PM the link (or more details)? Curious what you got. I have given up trying to find the "perfect" 2011 and have instead chose to waste 2k on a 2012 because i am not flexible!

My car is currently set to arrive on Sunday, hopefully the trains run on time!

Thanks guys! I got a few loose ends that I'm trying to tie up with regards to a few sticking points now but it's in the weeds and I'm not quite done negotiating. But unless the dealer does something stupid, I'll be picking up my new JGC on Saturday! I'll definitely post pics and my whole experience when I pick it up...can't wait!

Re: Clock is ticking...finally!

I'm in the same boat. I ordered my JGC Overland in August. Then I joined this forum for the great information. My ride is supoposed to be at the dealer on Sept 21st. I've had more than my share of bad dealer stories.
