Hey guys. Rather than hijacking other threads I thought I would create my own in order to highlight my predicament! I've been to a couple of Sytner dealers in Birmingham and have specced up a JCW
. This is: JCW
in Charcoal Grey
Lea Lounge Redwood Red Interior
Chilli Pack with full USB (includes arm rest and MSFW)
Exterior Mirror Pack
Visibility Pack (includes Auto-Dim Interior Mirror and Rain Sensor & Lights on)
Chrome Line Interior
Front Seat Heating
The quote for this came to £24,930 and with delivery etc. and TLC it comes to £25,765. I don't want to pay over £24,500 for the car, but am wondering if I am being unrealistic? The dealer won't budge on much of a discount and the most they are offering is the car for £25,525, hence a £500 discount. I've managed to get them to give me £6,500 for my current '04 Cooper (with full Aero Kit and 35,000 miles on the clock), and since the service is due soon they said that I don't have to get it serviced either. I approximate the service will cost me about £200 if I was to have it carried out. Originally they offered me £6,450 for my car on the condition that I had it serviced.
So basically I want a discount of just over £1,200 on the car regardless of how much they give me for my Cooper. Is this too unrealistic and should I lower my sights? I've heard of a couple of people who have managed to get a discount of around this much, but don't know how common this is.
As I said earlier I have been to a couple of Sytner dealers, one has given me the above quote, the other should have got back to me by now but haven't
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!
