So I was looking around online at different dealerships for newer STIs and noticed this Bill Kolb guy...

He's got

5 friggin' STIs! That's ridiculous.


I noticed that one of the STIs in this fleet was a new 2012. So inquired as to what the deal was with it, turns out it was damaged in transport...I was told by the Internet sales guy "it fell off a truck" but was repaired. It's never been titled and has just been sitting on their lot. I'm thinking logically that with the amount of new/used STIs they have they probably would be interested in moving this one because A) it's a year old now and B) it was damaged. Not the case, they are only offering it at $996 below invoice!

The internet sales guy Stu was less than helpful. He first sent me information on the wrong STI, then claimed it was a 2013(until I sent him the VIN). All of his responses were illegible 1-2 sentence responses littered with typos and grammatical errors, where do they get these people?

I tried to negotiate further by saying the damage history will effect the resale value by thousands of dollars and he stopped returning my e-mails, WTF!?

I just tried to explain to him why would I get a year old 2012 with 1000+ miles on it with accident history when I could buy a brand new one locally for a couple hundred dollars more.

He just responded with the price is "$34868"

It's no wonder they have so many STIs on their lot, the sales people are completely unreasonable, incompetent and unrealistic with their prices.
