Can anyone explain this to me:
I took delivery of a 2005 STS on September 1. It was a factory order and I paid dealer invoice. This invoice included the following in the "Pay 310" line:

"ADV 261 488.95" and
"EXP 65A 611.19"

I paid these as part of the invoice price, but what are they?
Aren't these amounts high?
Do these amounts vary by dealer?
Thanks.

ADV is the Advertising Fee. Most dealers charge this, sometimes you can get out of it, most of the time you cant.

I dont know what EXP is.

Actually, the 65A is imposed on the dealer by the factory, so it is a part of the cost of the vehicle to the dealer.

Oh yea, I mean its definitely part of the core vehicle cost, but I have known some to negotiate a discount equal to the amount of some of these fees off the price of the car if they yell enough.
