I'm sorry but I'm just giddy w/ exitement and if I don't share I'll burst! I just palced an order for a 2004 PW/B MC
w/ sunroof, bonnet stripes, tarten red interior upholstery , anthracite, leather steering wheel, sport seats, xenons, Harmon Kardon, white side turn indicators and chrome bumper inserts. I think I've almost got the specs right. I'd still like the leather but I'm not really crying, it's not like they have anything in red. I'm getting $15, 500 for the trade in (would have been $16, 000 if I got a 2003. They didn't have any so not really much of an option.). My current MC
is a 2003 CR/W with rear spoiler, chrome bumper insert and 16" five star design run-flats and (*#@&$*&@^ leatherette. BLECH!!!
The trade in price seems good to me but I'm a sucker in these matters. The car cost me approx. $17,300.00 PLUS handling fee & sales tax. THat's what gets me I'm never sure how all this is supposed to be figured out I'm going to have to pay another handling fee on my new MC
but my mom says that sales tax is only paid on the difference in a trade in.
So I guess I have no clue on how much I really "lost" (best calculation would be only about 11%!
I was thinking of trying to sell it myself. It couldn't hurt to stick a sign in the window for the next few months, but it seems obcene to ask someone for more than $15, 500 on on a 2003 MC
w/ 7,500mls on it . I just couldn't ask that much. Obviously I'd NEVER make it in sales.
