    The hardest part is negotiating a trade, do your homework, make sure you know what it is worth and also what your will to take.
    Never ever negotiate a payment, always deal with cost. Best to get your own financing for sure, as rates from one lender to the next could mean as much as 10% more.
    Ask to see the dealer invoice, they have to show it to you, and do not believe them when they say their losing money, there is always dealer pack money in an invoice. So if you paying $100.00 over dealer invoice, it means there is at least $500 or more in pack profit.
    If your trade has all kinds of after market wheels, tires, sounds etc., take them out and sell them, the dealer will never give you any more money for the trade whether they are there or not.
    Be firm and don't get all caught up in a "New Car Deal" and forget to make a great deal for yourself.

    I never say I have a trade until I negotiated the price of the car to invoice. Then I say " on second thought, I want to trade my car"

    S, no extra options beyond the standard stuff, manual, excellent condition, 10,100ish miles. I wish I had the TDI.


    I was sad cause I gave up my sweet VR6 GTI because of the winters.

    Nice. From teh look of the wheels its a 1500. Nice if you dont tow anything big. We bought a Ford F350 diesel to pull our 8000 lb race trailer. Used to have a chevy 2500. Great truck but hills were a bi&^h with the trailer.

    Yaaaay! 1 for 2 at least. The C5 started in 96? I thought it was 97... Oh well. I don't know a whole lot about cars, (more than the average person), I just have a weird ability to guess car years. I can also usually guess strangely close or even spot on how much people paid for stuff. Not even necessarily stuff I know anything about. It kinda freaks me/other people out sometimes! Lol

    Why are we showing pictures of old cars in a thread about a new truck anyway?

    Nice ride dude! I never understand why they put blingy wheels on what is supposed to be a TRUCK, but it's nice.

    There was a time when truck was a TRUCK. if you made it pretty it better be on the ground or in the sky. Anything else and you got yer azz kicked. No bling wheels on a "truck". Them were the old school rules.

    "Why are we showing pictures of old cars in a thread about a new truck anyway?"

    The same reason that someone posted a picture of a new truck on a forum about iPhones. It's his, he's proud of it and he wants to share it with other forum members.
