So I got a quote that played out like this from Aurora Suzuki in Seattle, WA
Non-ABS '08 Suzuki DL650 (Black)
Sub total = 7097.95
653.01 Sales Tax
15.50 Filing Fee
Total = 7917.78
WA sales tax should be 8.2% if I remember right.
Now the salesman said he couldn't give me a real quote since I had no intention of buying it that very day. So what all is BS in there? How can I talk the guy down to a realistic level without being a jerk about it too.
I read the 'receipt of trust' price from Suzuki for the dealer is $5786. Is that an accurate assessment and how does it get from Suzuki to the dealer, generally?
Funny part is I got a quote from Renton Motorcycles and it said 8186.57OTD for a 2008, lower down it said 7122.96 for an '07. I showed it to the salesman, he looks at the '07 and said I could meet that or beat it for an '08. He read a bit more and is like well wait.. this says here..and starts to backpedal. Then goes off their '08 price.
WHEW... anyway, this is becoming a headache for a decent deal. I definitely want one sooner rather than later but if it means I've got to get screwed across the board *shrug*
Thanks for reading all this
