    Quick pricing question 2015 STi

    We saw a STi at the auto show and we're hooked again.

    MSRP Sticker price on the STi $35,750.

    We talked to the dealer who originally offered 21k for my 13 premium WRX sedan with 20k miles on it. KBB says 23k and some change is a 'good' (not excellent) asking price. My car is well taken care of and well maintained. I told him I couldn't accept any less than 23k, which he said he could work on. I told him I'd call him today and we could agree on a fair deal.

    That being said... KBB says a fair price for the STi we're looking at is 33-34k in our area. Is that realistic? Our WRX is paid off, but we'd want to finance the money left over and pay it off within the next year.

    I was going to call back today and shoot a price of 34k on the Sti with 23k on the trade. Am I being unrealistic? I'm usually the guy who settles on very little below sticker price. I purchased my 13 WRX premium from this guy with very little compromise, since I had a hard time getting a hold of one. I'm not a haggler, but I want to feel like I got a fair deal on the car.

    Here's the exact car my wife and I want to order. I don't want the molested auto show room floor car. The STi has been my dream car for the past 10 years:

    Invoice price for a base model sti is about $32,600. I was seriously considering buying one from Clayton, but it didn't look like I could make the finances work out how I would have liked them to. Winning the lottery would be nice.

    OP, the photo you reference as being the exact one is a limited. Not sure you can get that for $34k.

    Been trying to get a hold of my sales guy all day. I'm going to request 23k in trade (13 premium WRX sedan 21k miles) and 35k flat on the new STi. That will leave me with interest and taxes on top of the remaining 12k I'll have to finance. He's not really a haggle kind of guy, so I'm just going to say if we can't make it happen it's a no go. The only reason we'd do it now is if everything worked out conveniently. If not, no big deal.

    Any advice?

    This sounds good for me. Don't let him win in a game of cat and mouse when it comes to negotiation. Depending on what additional options are on that car, from base invoice the dealership is making $3,250 at the price he gave you.... there is certainly wiggle room in that price. However, they will usually only go one way or the other ie. give you a better deal on the new car but keep trade in at original offer, or give you more money for the trade in but keep the new car at sticker or just below.

    It sounds like you have the right ideas in mind though.

    Well guys, looks like I'm going to be around for several more years. I put my $1000 deposit on my 2015 WRB STi. The only option I got was the STS.

    I didn't get the greatest deal on the car, paying $35,249 + $199 admin fee (I know...), but I'm comfortable paying that. I'm not a haggler. I just went with it as opposed to playing the game to get 35 flat. The car will be paid off within about a year anyway, since we'll have about 10k to finance. That being said, he gave me 23k for my WRX, sight unseen, knowing that it has been modded, and knowing I'll be putting stock parts back on the car. He sold me the car two years ago and he saw it in good condition when I came in for an oil change a few months ago. He originally wanted to give me 21k for my car, which I thought was really low until I started doing more homework and realizing 21k would have been an OK trade.

    90 days can't come soon enough. I finally purchased the car I've wanted for over ten years.

    My wife was all for it, but she says I'm keeping this one for a while... She's been really encouraging, but I honestly think she may divorce me if I tell her I want a new car in two years. My family on the other hand, although they acted polite, I can tell they think I'm a moron for this... Especially when they found out that I've never had the opportunity to drive one.
