    Excellent. If you don't need the 360 camera et al. other MY19 additions.

    For a ceramic silver w/ red (usually more rare) I'd say that's an excellent price. If you're happy with it go for it!

    Which dealer is this? Do they have more GT2s in stock? I'd jump on this right away!

    Well, the dealer is now backtracking and adding in extra fees. Will see how it goes, but looks much less promising.

    Ah yes, the good old strategy of "getting you in the door". They assume you'll just say yes to everything because "it's added value" and you already really like the car. Just tell them what your price is and leave if they won't meet it - especially if they're the ones who insinuated that price in the first place.

    Although honestly, this stuff rubs me so wrong that I usually just don't do business with dealers like that. I'd rather pay a bit more to work with someone that I know is honest and upfront with me from the start - which is even more important if you're going to have the car serviced there. If they lie to make sales, they'll lie to get service.

    Ok, here is my latest deal from another dealer on a Blue Stinger RWD with Grey interior. i do like the Grey interior and looks like they have discontinued for 2019.

    50,705.00 Current Market Value (they added remote start and door sill applique)
    47,000.00 Sales Price
    7700.00 Rebate
    39,300.00 Price
    900.00 Freight
    300 Dealer Processing
    1446.00 Georgia Sales Tax
    351.00 Estimated Tag & Titling Fee's
    1000.00 Down Payment

    36 Month Term 10K Miles Per Year 1K Down is 573.33
    2K Down is 542.24, 3K Down is 511.16

    The car is in the northeast (RWD sports cars probably not popular this time of year) and I would have it shipped to Atlanta. Good deal or wait till after first of year and get a 2019?

    3700 dealer discount seems low for 2018. For 2019 Costco pricing (for Atlanta) is 3500 below MSRP.

    Is that a GT2?

    If that is the case, then is not a bad deal. I think you can get another 500 off the sales price.

    Ok, after several simultaneous negotiations here is the best deal I'm able to find on a Ceramic Silver

    After lease cash and discounts $37,953.

    I'm finding the various fees vary widely from dealer to dealer. In this case there are $1440 of doc fees, lease acquisition, etc.

    TTL for a lease in Georgia is fairly attractive as you only pay tax on the lease payments, not the value of the vehicle. For this car, around $2100.

    Total, Out-the-door is $41,725.

    Is this for a GT2 or just a GT?

    That isn't a terrible deal ... I was able to get my gt2 AWD from 52300 down 11% off msrp before incentives, but I hard negotiated for 90 minutes.

    Yes, I am sure of that. My dealer's "fees and costs" amounted to 80% of the lease incentive. So I suspect that the dealer got back a fair amount of profit thereby. I didn't argue, since the price was not much of an issue (I don't dicker price on anything as long as I can afford a reasonable price; and I am there to buy, not be talked into it).
