My mom, in my opinion is by far one of the best negociators. She started out with 9500 coming up with all these little problems and such. went to 9800. then continue to 10000. Then she pretended like she was disappointed and then said we will call back because there are other cars. This guy was tough because the price, I think, is really good for a 2000 GTS with all the options.
My mom had a dealer knock off $1200!! off my 97 Celica Convertable last year (Price was 9995 went to 8800). She also had a lady knock off an extra 1000 for my sisters honda accord(14500 went down to 13500). I thought it would work on this guy but he is absolutely FIRM about 11k. He told my mom like 7 times!! "11K FIRM ON THAT PRICE" LOL it was hilarious. If I do get it for 11K should I tell him to replace the lift bolts and reseal the passenger side headlight? It had A LOT of condensation in the whole headlight.
Also another thing. This was my first time driving a GTS. Is it just me or is the throws on the shifter short as hell? I mean its as short as my friends B&M on his 98 civic. I thought he had a short shifter but he said it was stock. I can't imagine how short the throws would be if I put the TWM in there. He said he had TRD
springs in for about 3 years now and the stock sturts are good. I tried to tell him that the car is lowered and the strust are bad or about to go bad. MAN THIS GUY WAS TOUGH!!
