Not gonna drop 25g's for that if that is what it's gonna be. Does anybody have some insurance quotes for this thing that will help alot of people decide right there just like me otherwise I'd be rollin in a wrx.
as an x-dealer employee, i can tell you this.....we didn't even get much of a discount on new cars. mazda put in about 500-1000 markup in the cost. the dealer cant even mark up the sticker price cause they get the stickers direct from mazda, bargain point 1. Bargain point 2 always agree on the price of the car first...don't even tell them you have a trade-in or down payment at first. Bargain point 3 get some info off of www.kbb.com or www.nadaguide.com most dealers will use those to determine trade in price. they usually will use black book prices instead of blue book which both those sites give you. I would expect a good dealership to go maybe 500-800 below what you see listed as blue book value. Biggest piece of advice, shop around, get quotes from a couple of dealers on both trade-in and new car price..use that as a bargaing tool. it helps too if you go to a site like www.greenlight.com and get the msrp and wholesale figures on the car you want..the dealer can't back out but so much when he knows you know what whole sale price is. being the mazdaspeed isnt out yet that maybe difficult though.
