AWD with snows should be the best but tires, wheels and mounting cost too much. When the weather is bad, I'll just stay home.

a 2011 with more miles? 3-4 grand less? 24K maybe, tops?
I'm terrible with pricing though.

on something with that low mileage, for the same model year, I might just pay darned near the same price, since you are extending the warranty for a couple of years (and may get cheaper financing?). 4K miles is not much to trade for an extended warranty.
Now, I would not pay new prices for a 2011 with 40K on it!

So.. Emailed an offer of $500 under asking price on Saturday evening... and, nothing but crickets.

Dang crickets..he was pretty punctual with the emails before, wasn't he
Betcha he hasn't lined up another DD he likes as well.
Of course he knows that you have gone to more than just a bit of trouble here lining up a friend to check it out and such..he knows you're prepared to travel etc probably figures he's gonna give it a few more days or a week to get his price. He knows there ain't a lot of 'em out there so that might work against ya on the lower offer..
Can always come up tho, but might have to be full pop. I wonder if 250. less mighta done the trick? Or try for that now..let on that if it'll make the difference you have another agenda you have to tend to and time is running out so you'd just like to get 'er done..

all the jersey guys need to start trolling the guy. Start making offers in the 5-6K range. And laugh at his asking price.
eventually he will get the hint that he better grab the Kentucky money on the table!
or I get it for a nice low price. A win win!

haha, never thought of that...so nasty..makes one wonder just how low he got for..
I suppose if he Googled this car himself, it might pull up our chat here, so that might not work too well.. internet...can help ya, but can also bite ya with a bit of bad luck..
Does it have galvanized body panels does anyone know? If so, I wouldn't worry about the nicks...they're just character spots..

Could happen; one of our former editors blogged about how he was going to try to beat a speeding ticket years ago. The cop read the blog and made sure he showed up at court, and introduced the blog (and some incriminating statements in it) as evidence, and the ticket stood.
Anything you Blog can and will be used against you...

What time Sat evening? Jersey dealer hours are quite typically only till 6pm on Sat and then, of course, closed Sunday.

It was after he closed, but I got an email from him just 30 minutes before that... he seems to be connected all of the time.. Email app on his cellphone..
It wasn't that I expected a reply or answer on Saturday.. or, even Sunday... but, all day Monday?
I don't want to push it... it's a long way to go and a chance to take, on someone that doesn't exhibit a little enthusiasm for the deal (which he did, before my last email...)
