Are you getting GMS on this? If not, that would save you at least an additional $6k-$7k. If you need GMS, PM me.

Now is definately the time to get GMS if you own a non-gm vehicle.

That price is very slightly above GMS, assuming no Recaros. I'd say that was a good price. (I paid GMS--THANKS MATT ;) :worship: --and that price is pretty close.) If you can get a GMS number, all the better.

It's got Recaros? Then you've got yourself an excellent price. Run, do not walk, back to the dealer!

BTW, GMS is GM employee price.

Kinda important info you left out there. That price is not as good as I thought. You need a GMS number for sure.

If you're still interested in the car (and it's still available), contact the dealer to see if it will take GMS. If so, ask what the price will be with GMS. If it all sounds good, send me an e-mail at sefa@aol.com and I'll tell you how to get the GMS registration and certificate.

While not a GM supplier or anything else with GM , I was able to use it for my V2 and previously for a Corvette

Get that GMS number. Your dealer may be able to even set you up with it. I bought mine as a demo and we haggled endlessly but had a breakthrough when the dealer found out you could apply the GMS # to a reduced price since it was a demo.

But, bottom line, find out what your general finacning charges would be over the price of your loan. I didn't get the lowest price ever for my '09 BUT with 0%, it saved me more money than the rebates would with a traditional loan. Crunch those numbers!!!

i number crunched until my calculator buttons popped off, the zero percent would be good if i kept the car for 4 years or longer, but i tend to trade them after 2-3 years, so my own financing would have been better for me. after looking at the manheim numbers for 2009 ctsvs at auction, they are going for 49-50k, that would put me 15k behind the eight ball as soon as i signed the papers, with my 3.99 percent financing on a 59.5k car.....

well, I tend to keep my cars for 6-10 years so I'm not worried about a 72 month term...plus the cash I could've put down is still sitting in my bank so I've got insurance...
