Just wanted to share my experience with owning a new 350Z 2005 model. I FINALLY bought my 350z from Ramsey Nissan in NJ. After reading members experience here and pricing competetion between dealers, i belive i got a fairly good deal.
I paid 28K(EVEN) with Aero dynamic package and all standard options like carpets, kick plates etc etc, BS doc fee and reistration included. I had to pay about 1670 plus 7.5 tax. Is this a good deal for a 2005 automatic enthusiast Z?

I bought my 2004 Z at Turner Nissan in Sacramento for $500.00 over invoice through the Costco Membership program. No hassling, great buying experience. The dealer found the only Daytona Blue in Northern California for me and had it the following day. $34,600 otd with the $1660 chrome rims,aero package ,mats, kick plate. I love the car have put 1200 miles on it already.

I am purchasing a slightly used 2004 Z Touring Coupe, with 6 speed manual, Navigation, Leather heated seats, kick plates, splash guards, aerodynamic package, trunk luggage package, Bose audio, 18" alloy wheels. It has 7800 miles on it and I got the price down to $27500. White color with black interior. This is my first time posting here and im supposed to make the deal tomorrow with a private party. The person owes $39500 on the car but needs to get rid of it fast, so will pay the difference. Please tell me if you think this is a good deal.

For $500 over invoice, you will have to negotiate well to get that price but it is definately a good price to offer the dealership. $500 over invoice is definately not a joke eventhough some dealers will ack like it is one. Don't let them intimidate you because of that. Do they consider it a joke if they mark up the car $5000? We are all playing a game here. Shop around to test the water. In order to get the best price, ack like you are really ready to buy eventhough you are still looking for the right price.
Also, while negotiating, tell them you will have to testdrive the S2000 before you can make your final decision. Trust me, they will do whatever they can for the most part to keep you from checking out the Honda. And last, don't spend more than 30 minutes negotiating for they will wear you out the longer you stay until you give in.
Good luck! Hope you can get the best deal at the end of the month/year.

Hey thanks for the reply...yah blows my mind these dealerships mark up invoice so much...yah I thought 500 was a good price....I might even go 200 more...and I wont sit there for more than 20 minutes!!!! I did that on the first car I bought...took forever....anyways im going to call a few dealerships and talk to the sales manager...see what they can get.
#68 of 475 Deals on 04 models
Dec 20, 2004 (12:09 am)
I'm looking at 04 and 05 350z's. Does anyone know what kind of incentives dealers will offer on 04 models after the new year. Currently, a local dealership has 15 04's on the lot. Can anyone please provide information on how the dealers manage situations like this? It's hard to imagine anyone buying an 04 for invoice or greater with 05's on the lot (right?).
Thanks in advance for your help!
#69 of 475 Was this is a deal??
Dec 28, 2004 (4:40 pm)
OK tell me if I got a good deal. I bought a 2005 Touring 5 spd auto with aero pack, mats etc. Sticker was 34095.00 I traded in a 97 Mitsubishi Diamante with 93,000. Kelly Blue book listed my trade as worth 2800.00. I told the salesman that I didn't care how they worked it Ie. trade-in/sales price below sticker etc. but I would only pay this price per month. In the end I agreed to go over my target monthly payment by about 60 bucks. But they gave me nearly 9000.00 for my trade in. So I'm paying 5.35 interest and 419 month. Did I steal it?

You failed to mention all of the particulars of your deal, what price did YOU pay for the car, the sticker price you mentioned is just the MSRP. You make no mention of how many months your loan is or if you had to put down any cash. Two things jump out at me immediately, which unfortunately makes me think you got bent over a barrel bad, with no vaseline noless to ease the pain. 1.) I don't care what KBB.com says your trade is worth, an old car like that is immediate wholesale material for any dealer. The dealer in no way shape or form paid you $9000 for that car. Your sales sheet may show a $9000 credit however I'm pretty certain the price of the car you think you negotiated for was raised at least $8000 by the time you signed the paperwork. That was done to cover the cost of printing a $9000 trade figure into your bill of sale. 2.) I hope you didn't read any of these boards before you shopped, because if you did it looks as though you didn't retain any important info about how to negotiate. NEVER NEVER NEVER tell a salesperson where you want your payments to be. They instantly know right away that they can manipulate their figures (e.g. your trade amount)to their advantage anyway they want. You should always negotiate on price only and all of the mathematical computations will be automatically correct once you determine your credits, downpayment, taxes and finance amount and interest rates. Can you tell us those figures of your deal? Then you could at least have an answer from "us know it alls", ha ha.
