    sorry, but for all these prices that you guys are talking about, is it the out the door price, or the price before tax and license and fees?

    Is this in reference to a previous post or are you just asking with no precedent in the thread?

    Well, the way I usually do things is by starting a business transaction, and this seldom, if ever, involves speaking to a salesperson for more than a few minutes (half hour max).

    Their gender, race, beliefs, appearance, personality, problems, strengths, weaknesses, etc. -- anything about them -- doesn't really matter, as the whole transaction isn't really focused on them; it's focused on me. This is possible because all they have is cars, whereas the buyer has money.

    Email around for the car you want. Do not call. Ever. Under any circumstances. If you get responses like "call me" move on. There is nothing to talk about; they either have the car you've selected or not. If they do, and they offer it at the price you've selected, go drive it. If they don't, move on.

    Tell them when you're showing up so they can be expecting you. Have a loan commitment from your credit union or your check book handy. Do not go to a dealer and depend on them for financing.

    If you hear phases such as "... let me run some numbers" leave them your card and have them call you when they've prepared whatever miraculous numbers for which they apparently felt the need to delay you.

    Another red flag is "... I'm losing money with this deal."

    This is one of the few phrases I take at face value -- repeat, face value. Believe them, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Apologize, shake their hand, and leave. Don't let them sell you a car "at a loss." Leave instead. This cuts down drastically on rubbish and BS fanfare during what should be a straightforward transaction.

    Buying a car is very simple; it is we that make it "complicated."

    You all must be really happy people.In Ukrain WRX 2.5 turbo is $37000+
    taxes~=$39000. We didn't hesitate to buy it. It was enough only test-
    drive to make definitive decision. Right now I'm not sure it was right one.
    Yesterday I burnt off the clutch. And I had to change all shock-absorbers in 17000 km. But it's nothing compared to drive .
    Actually that's my wife's car, sometimes I take it to do some flying...

    What Red Flags Should I Look For When Purchasing an 02 WRX?

    How do i Know that the wrx Im buying is in good operating condition? Should I keep my eye out for any signs that might not be typical in these cars? Thanks

    I'm gonna try to revive this thread. :-D

    according to edmunds base invoice price on an 07 sti is 31,618. so you're under invoice according to edmunds which is good.

    Most of the dealerships in my area (NJ/NY metro area) offer 07 STis for 32000 flat and it's very hard to get any of them to budge too much.

    I'm looking to buy a new 07 sti right now and 32k seems to be the magic number everywhere. Edmunds true market value (takes data from what people are actually buying the car for) is close to 33k.

    So to me that's not a bad price at all.

    Be careful of financing though. 6% or 7% can be a lot of money long term. Try to get the lowest APR possible. Shop around for financing as much as you shop around for your car.

    Very.

    I wouldn't buy an STi unless it had 0 miles on it. People test drive a non-broken in car and redline the thing. That = bad.

    Most dealerships won't let people test drive cars like this
