I have never understood why people will pay such premiums for new cars. I guess when you have a ton of money, an extra 15k or so isnt that big of a deal. I, however, try and get the best deal possible, and am willing to wait to get it.

A dealer near me is asking for 78k as well for a black one. Nuts! He also told me there are only 3 in the entire state...among other bull

Getting mine next week. I got in on the price protection and ordered it with upgraded sound and 3 season tires. No luxury group II. I paid 55,830. Guess I got lucky.

I have a 2011 gray Bmw 550i that a dealer in Skokie Illinois was going to give me 43k for (71k just 1 year ago) 25,000 miles and excellent condition, wanting 78k for a jeep with 91 miles on it. The salesman kept repeating" but I have to eat too" among other crap, they thought I was insane when I quoted what you guys payed on this site. I felt profiled being a thirty-something black guy, I could tell they assumed I was ignorant of the numbers of the jeep and financial issues in general . To make it worse, one of the sales guys was a "brotha" too trying to act like he knew me. Generally, these guys think black people are bad with money and take advantage but Too bad he didn't know I was a board certified child and adult psychiatrist, so not exactly a stupid person, and my business is to know people and behavior. After pushing back for 20 minutes ,it felt good to storm out of there I guess ill have to order one at my preferred dealer and wait.

Don't feel bad, 99% of all dealers treat people like they are idiots and try to play games and screw you over. The car dealer model is completely broken.

Ah, that sucks. People should be judged in how they act, not how they look. It's probably similar for a woman walking into a car dealer and trying to strike a deal, they think all women are car stupid too.

Just order it, that's what I did. I got 1k over invoice which I thought was fair.....and it allows the salesman to eat too ;)

I've decided I'll never pay over $40,000 for a car. Lol. Might sound cheap to you guys but hey, I'm not banking like that.

I've also decided I'll never buy new cars neither.

Maybe it's because I don't keep cars long.

Is it Mineral Gray and are you buying it in Nebraska? If so, I found it on a dealer website search.
