: Used V2 Prices...

So I've scowered the internet for a used V2 for several months... this warm weather almost played tricks on me to say yes after going to a dealership and seeing a used '11 black diamond sedan with 4k miles on it for 58k... but they wouldn't budge on price

I'm really torn between the coupe and sedan, I'd take a sedan in white diamond or black diamond, only the white diamond appeals to me on the coupe, for some reason I'd feel like I "settled" if i went with black diamond on the coupe... of course it has to have recaros, and at this point I'm impartial between auto and manual...

so i found the following:
used '09 white diamond sedan, recaros manual with 16k miles for 49k
used '10 white diamond sedan, recaros, auto with 24k miles for 48k
used '11 black diamond coupe, recaros, manual with 13k miles for 56k
used '11 white diamond couple, recaros, auto with 4k miles for 59k

... and I'm still in awe of the used '11 black diamond sedan (black wheels, yellow brakes) I went and looked at last week for 58k... that black diamond paint is mesmerizing, ahh, what to do!?!?!?!?!? Also, I'm very hesitant about buying a used car with over 20k miles on it and leaning towards an '11 for warranty purposes...

I can't help but wonder if these prices will fall again as soon as the 2013 MY V hits the lot??? when will that happen, June/July? should I wait? Any ideas/advice?

and of course... the more $ i save on the purchase goes directly to my mod list... thanks in advance

Too bad you don't want a higher mileage Black Raven '09. No mods required...

I've seen a few 2011s loaded sell for ~$53K. Pricing has come down. $49K for a 09 is ridiculous.

I got my 09 with 30k miles for 46 about 2 months ago. a little on the high side, but it was in great condition. if you have a little extra money, i'd get the black diamond and call it a day. They'll always drop in price, it's a gimme in the used car game. Just don't buy new, WAYYY too expensive to save 20k by getting a slightly used one.

I don't get why people are still paying high $50's for a USED '11 V when you can jump into a brand new '12 (and soon a '13) for low $60's... :bigroll:

How are you getting into a 12 for low 60's when invoice for an optioned up car is 68 and change? What incentives are happening behind the scene right now that I'm not aware of?

Dealer I'm working with, car sitting on the lot for the last 4mo, end of month, soon to be end of year still won't budge under invoice.

I don't believe you can get into a new loaded car for low $60's. Mid 60's yes. Options are expensive on this car. Tri-coat paint is $1000, Recaros are $3400, wood trim is $600, roof, wheels etc. It adds up fast. MSRP on fully loaded cars is over $75,000. That said low mile '09's can be had for mid $40's for a nice well equipped car. Mid 50's for an '11. I have lived this by selling my '09 in December and buying a '12 in February. The price will continue to drop as time goes by and certainly as fall comes. The '13 will not hit the showroom until fall so if you are waiting for the model change it will be a while.

I would start with the Classified section, there is a 2009 and a 2011 on the first page.

Buy used with a Certified warranty. Let somebody else take the depreciation hit.

Personally, I would never again own a black car. They are beautiful when clean and shiny, but I always found them to be too much work to keep them that way for anything other than a garage queen.

They are stubborn. And it will sit...

Nothing. The company I contract for was bought out and I'm keeping my options open. If someone buys my V, I may cruise around in something cheap and buy a Vagon in a year or so.

I may not sell at all and that may be OK. Not really sure. My '04 is in the process of being purchased, however...

If you're looking @ autos, stay with 2011+. They have the revised programing in the tranny. You can find them out there for mid to low 50s if you look hard enough.

Thank you, Katie.

Whatever happens, even if I sold I wouldn't be out of a V for long. These Cadillacs are just too good...

The prices will definitely get softer when the 2013 hits the streets. I think 2013 info will be released in a few weeks and if the changes are minor(most likely) you will not see a significant drop in price. I would wait til you find the one you like with the right options, prices are only going to get softer and more are coming into the market. Keep in mind that typically, sport car prices are softer in the winter.

Personally I'm looking for a certified 2011 coupe with around 30k miles for 50k. Mileage is not a concern since it will be driven around 5k miles a year. The only options I care for are the 6mt and Recaros. I'm hoping it will be in my price range within 6-12 months. Do you guys think this is realistic?

I think in 6-12 months youll have no problem finding a coupe around $50k. Ive seen a few around $54k already. I was thinking of leasing, but i know ill want to mod it so that also has me watching the prices. 2010's seem to cost the same as 09's. Im definitely going with a manual, so i dont think any programming changes in 2011+ will impact me

I purchased a 2012 6MT Black Diamond V Coupe all options except yellow brembos at a $9293 or so discount off MSRP 9 days ago. The deals are out there if you get the right dealership.

My "11 V Coupe is on the dealer's website at $58K. 12000 miles, black raven with ebony/saffron, polished wheels, yellow calipers, gray shift paddles, sunroof, auto, Recaros. I don't think they will get $58K but somebody will get a beautiful ride.

i think your only obstacle is "fair market value". sure you can get a private sale high mile no option cts-v for 40k, but why,... bragging rights? if you want a low mile loaded certified pre owned than you will pay the fair market value or kbb. and that's as good as it gets. i paid (last week) 48k for mine (09) with 12k fully loaded with recaros (they dont squeak or rock btw, no isolater noise, and no wheel clicking) and no new-dealer depreciation (7 grand) when i drove away. if i sell it tomorrow i get 48k. see where i'm going?

I would say to keep shopping, and check Yahoo Autos every couple weeks. I was in the market for 4 months for my V. Ended up finding it at a small town dealership... Played hardball and got my '10 with 16,500 miles loaded for $48K. Sometimes people are desperate to sell!!

Good Luck,

What dealer was this? My local dealer wants over invoice for a 2012 and doesn't have a manual coupe.

I've been mulling over selling mine to go on a "fiscal diet" for about 18 months then pick up a '14 V. I'm still not sure I can part with her. But, my daughter is in a private college and, even with academic money and athletic scholarship, its costing me a fortune. I'm trying to stay out of my 401K to pay for tuition. Unfortunately it is not exactly what your looking for. It is a 2010 6A Black Raven sedan with 30K miles and Recaros with some nice cosmetic mods if you like blacked out rides. There are pics in my profile.
