    Completely agree, throw your comment in then keep quite. Silence is really powerful, makes the other party feel really uncomfortable, and then they feel they have to say something, usually to your benefit.

    Agreed. I'm also a big fan of the "walk away" - works like a champ.

    nice price on a exclusive selection V10 MT. Good find. MSRP on that puppy is 165,750. 25850 off MSRP plus the exclusive selection has built in discount on the options. Very nice deal, surprised it is listed as used. 106 miles. Wonder what the story is on that one....

    Most salesman aren't able to really make the final deal at these discount levels. They have to go to "the Management" to get approval. Be sure you are either ready to sit and play the game, or use the walk away to get the best deal. After a couple of times with the salesman going back and forth, ask to sit with the manager, or the person that is doing the real negotiating.

    I would start at 40-45k off. You can always go up, and remember they need to sell the car far more than you need to park it in your garage.

    I have contacted a few dealers hoping to snipe a 2012 at about 25k off msrp. Being in the UK, I don't know if the business model is different, but I can't seem to get anywhere close to that.

    Perhaps the stock in the UK is more limited or something?

    Advice would be much appreciated.

    I would agree, you'll be lucky in the UK to get that level of discount.

    Try adding 10k of options and then going for a discount that in fact means the options are free. Worked for a friend of mine.

    Yeah it's a tough one. Hunting for a deal and selling my car privately in the meantime.

    25K off and thats before negotiations start. The only guy who is going to pay the $173K is a guy who uses money as TP or has been living under a rock and doesnt realize we have been in the Information technology age for the past 25 years
