#1999 of 2594 Got a great deal today on a 3.0 in New Jersey
Sep 11, 2004 (3:29 pm)
I shopped several dealers in the Central/Northern NJ area before finding a great deal at Montclair Jaguar on a 2004 radiance red metallic 3.0 with heated seats, the X1 premium package, and reverse park control. MSRP (including the advertising fee) was $36,990 and I got the car for $28,345. The dealer gave me a price under invoice and also full credit for the $5,000 manufacturer to dealer incentive and a discount. My salesman was a gentleman and I would identify him by name if it were not against the rules. I am very excited about picking the car up in a few days.
#2000 of 2594 Any good deals on the West Coast

There seems to be good deals going back east but I'm having trouble finding anyone willing to sell a 3.0 X-Type for a reasonable price. Reasonable to me is invoice+$1000 - $5000 dealer cash. Anyone had any better luck in WA, OR or CA or am I just expecting too much?
#2001 of 2594 Jaguar X Lease, "A" Plan, $5000 Discount!!!!
Sep 13, 2004 (6:36 am)
I need some advice. I am looking at Leasing a 2004 X-Type. One question is: I have the "A" Plan (for Ford Employees) which allows me to buy/lease at Factory Invoice Price. When leasing using the "A" Plan could I also "negotiate" with the Dealer to also Discount further using the $5,000 manufacturer to dealer incentive? Or are these not Allowed on Leases? I do not think I have much negotiating power though because here in Las Vegas, Gaudin Jaguar is the only Jaguar Dealer for hundreds of miles and they figure that buyers are not going to go shop anywhere else. Any Advice? Thank You.

The $5000 dealer cash doesn't apply to financing or leasing.

Just bought a bone stock 2.5 with plat/charcoal for $534 over invoice yesterday. The dealer is having the car shipped here so I get a "free" loaner to drive until mine comes. Not the best deal in the world...but I am happy...

Did you qualify for the dealer cash or did you buy/lease through Jaguar finance? I'm about to give up and get a Volvo or Infiniti instead. I keep getting quoted "great deals" like $500 to $1000 over invoice. Because I'll be paying cash, accepting a $500 over invoice on a 3.0 is leaving $5500 on the table. That's the best part of double the usual dealer profit on these cars. I figured $1000 over invoice minus the dealer cash would be fair. On the East coast there doesn't seem to be a problem but here in the West no-one wants to play ball.

"Qualify" for the dealer cash? Why do you need a "qualification" for the dealer cash? I simply place calls to dealers within 200 miles radius, noted the best deal, then ask the nearest dealer to match it. Anyway, sorry if I was not being specific, I paid $534 over invoice, MINUS $5500 dealer cash, or a tad below $23K for a new Plat/charcoal X-type. It is not the best deal out there but I am a happy Jaguar owner!

""Qualify" for the dealer cash? Why do you need a "qualification" for the dealer cash?"
Because it doesn't apply to secial Jaguar finance and lease offers.
Anyway, so far a total of 18 dealerships called and a whole 5 calls returned. I'll start moving east tomorrow. Any good dealerships in Utah or Colorado?
Who did you get the car from and how much did they charge for the shipping?
