Question Do you think this offer is fair?

I went to a dealership today and for a MY01 2.5 RS coupe w/ auto tranny (MSRP = $28,295), they quoted me $27,025. That is $1,270 off the MSRP. The salesman said if I commit, he could probably knock that down $200 - $300 more. If I could get him down to $26,795 do you think that is a fair deal?

Thanks in advance,

Keenan

Get the manual!! You will not regret it!! It also means you will get the car for about $1000.00 cheaper. If your getting a 2001 manual for $25,795.00 you're getting a GREAT deal.

If your willing to take the time to learn how to drive it, you will be much happier with a stick. Not to mention its $1000 cheaper than the automatic. Which dealer have you been talking to?

bah! manual is great for leisure driving, but when you are going home at 5pm and stuck in traffic and highly stressed and hungry, you'll be thankful you got an automatic... =) You can suck back a big gulp and sit back and relax as you go through traffic like you're on a beach somewhere in hawaii... gas, brake, gas, brake, ahhh...=P

BTW, my last car was a manual, so this time, I went for an automatic, if I ever get the wrx, then I would go for a stick, but for my TS, my wonderful every day driver, auto it is!!!!

my 2 cents worth,
Youthanasia

I'd just like to thank everyone for their posts. I knew many of you would mention that I should buy a standard and that's cool. I am still undecided. Anyway, I'll keep you updated. Sounds like $1,500 off is a pretty good deal.

Cool

Well, when I brought my TS (auto) last year, I got $1400 knock off easily. Then I got the dealer to add hood deflector, block heater, mud flap, a set of floor mat thrown in w/o charge. A friend of mine did the same thing this year with his MY00 TS. So I think you can do better than (or at least equal to) that.
BTW, I second the idea of 4EAT. I like manual don't get me wrong (my other car is an Integra TypeR), but sometime you just want to sit back and relax. Also, I've heard that the 4EAT trans is stronger than that of manual.
Welcome aboard, by the way.

Get the manual! I have a '94 Legacy Turbo with a 5 speed and I drive across Toronto on the 401 every day (dare I say, the most congested highway in Canada). I've never once thought 'gee, I wish I had an auto." Today's manual transmissions are just so efortless.

Automatics cost more, weigh more, are less efficient, more complicated and more difficult to repair, and most importantly, they can't read your mind. I can read my mind and I know what gear I want and when, damit! ;-> I've never understood the point of replacing a simple, effective device with something far more complex but less effective.

And if you don't know how to drive a manual, you can take lessons for a fraction of the price of the auto.

Cheers!

Hey, youthanasia,

That's what a beater car is for. Use the RS for pleasure driving only. i.e, weekend, late night cruise Fun!

Edit: Oh ya, don't forget about rallying and racing.(Legal ones)

heh... so sorry, don't have enough money for a beater car... maybe when my stocks go up I can buy an Audi S4 =P hah hah hah!

Seriously, my car is dual purpose, pleasure and work, yes, it is auto, but that doesn't take away the pleasure of driving it if you know how to properly predict where/how the auto shifts, and yes, the auto transmission in the subie is really very predictable on terms on when/how it shifts... =)

No money? Got my '82 Accord(5 spd) at the Auction for $150. Drove it to school, work, and such.... Used the RS only for crusing

Sold the Accord to my friend a little while ago. It still runs fine though. Easy on gas, too. I thought it was a good deal....

Blah blah blah.... I talk too much
