Thanks for the quick response.Hey Stig, great user name.
There is lots of discussion in the forum about pricing. The general consensus is that in Canada, you will pay sticker price regardless of MY17 or MY18 or location. Having said that, you might get the all weather mats thrown in and a small discount (total <$1000). In Canada, the MY18 is likely a better deal because you get the Nav system included in the base price. Also, the pricing seems to be a bit better in Canada than the US, but that is likely due to slightly different content.
BTW, wife and I were originally born in Calgary, but now live in SW Ontario (3 h from YYZ)
Edmonton has one GTS . I am not super crazy about the exterior color of that GTS. I emailed them and waiting for them to get back to me.check edmonton
I believe they have a few GTSs available
its a short drive, I find the service in edmonton far better than calgary
Yes Costco does have auto services here in Canada. The only ones I have seen are for Ford and Lincoln.Does Costco have auto services in Canada? They do in the US, and they have Porsche dealers in the program. I kid you not. Price through that was about 4% off MSRP, iirc.
My thoughts were the same. I was thinking 35k would be a fair value. Yes it has M Sports pack, Premium, Park Assist and Connected . It also has 3M protection, brand new summer tires went in about a week ago.your dealer is low balling you on the trade. I say $34,000 trade in would be fair (assuming it has M package, Prem & Exec)
As for the discount, in the Toronto area, people are now getting around 2-2.5% off on the Macan (custom ordered)
@e85sbm I don't think there is any mis-information here. We all know that the dealer will pay the wholesale price. In most cases there is a cost associated with getting a trade in ready for the market.I need to jump in here as there seems to be a little mis-information on the trade in value. Dealers will pay you a wholesale value for your trade, depends on car, it could be $10,000 less than market value for that model. The reason is that they need to sell that vehicle and still make a profit, plus there is a need to build a cushion for potential repairs (brakes, windshield, tires, oil change, etc....). So if you break it down, the dealer will pay on average $3,000 for repairs, make approx $2500-$3000 in profit and will list a little higher because no one ever pays asking price for a car. Depends on the manufacturer too, some may even add a Certified Warranty which costs the dealership $2000.
I am in no way associated with Porsche Centre Calgary, however, I was formerly at Calgary BMW and am blown away that they would be giving 7% off on a factory ordered M3, especially when the M3 is not typically a discounted vehicle and there is only an 8% markup (unless there is a delivery credit being used)....but a dealer cannot carry forward delivery credits on factory orders.
If you don't agree with the fact that the dealer is a business and is not a charity, then don't complain about the fact they are doing what is best for them. Especially with a GT model, they are VERY difficult to sell. Just sell it privately if you don't want to accept the implied market value and tax credit from the dealer, or just shop around dealers and sell it to the highest bidder (Country Hills Toyota usually pays up fr trades).
I know. I wasn't even going to talk to him about that.there is absolutely no way bmw dealer margin is 8% at all. I have friends who bought at year end clearance and have gotten nearly 8.5% off and no dealer admin fee and no other bogus fees, this is just on the dealer side, of course.
I know it is near 10% dealer margin, not even counting any factory to dealer sales figures target credit/incentive that is not pass onto the buying public.
