But I don't have a new car :-/

I did about 90 in the waggy. I was bombing down the road doing '75' according to the speedo.

Was wondering why the hell I was passing everybody. Yeah. My speedo is about 20% wrong hahaha.

Yes I am. But I have known my current girl for 13 yrs. She lives with me, hangs out here while I go to work. The only problem that I have with her is that she occasionally urinates on the floor when I am gone.

I am hoping to be out and back in town by this weekend & my parents want my help with buying a car they like @ one of the centennial dealerships since I love haggling and messing with car salesmen so much that I do it for fun sometimes.
While I've been pretty successful at getting good deals over the years, I'm always looking for more tips/tricks to get the best deals, anyone have any they are willing to share?

P.S. Marn - love the first FSJ you linked, hands down the best, but you should totally buy the one in beaver and let me drive it home for you

Always walk away at least once and never get roped into what the payments will be. You should already know that before you walk in there. All you should be worried about is the bottom line. Tell them that you will be financing the car, even if you have financing lined up elsewhere. Just don't tell them that part of it. Take something to snack on. And the last bit of advice I can give is to never wait more than about ten minutes. If the salesman disappears for longer than that, go track him down. Invariably you will find them holding a conversation with someone else. They will tell you that they are fighting to get you a lower price. I ask at that point why I am dealing with the salesman if the other person is the one making the decisions.

Thanks for the info; hadn't thought about bringing a snack, good idea!
I always know exactly what my limit is (i.e. total price) and exactly what I want before I talk to any of the employees, then I let the sales dude feel good about him/herself by fetching drinks, keys, etc for me while I give the vehicle a thorough run through, adjust my mental price as necessary, then tell the sales person I want to talk with their manager and explain I don't have the time to waste playing games so I would rather talk to the person that's going to have the authority to deal with me right up front. I have also found it handy to look up the trade in value on kbb, nada, and edmunds to get an idea of what they paid for it, then look at all the tsb's, known issues, etc. and mention them to the sales person; amazing what 30 minutes on the 'net can do to help out with fast and fun facts for negotiating.

It is not ok. That said, BLM guys usually won't hassle you other than identifying you assuming you aren't all gangnam style.

Sadly, I shaved the 'stache off about a month ago. No more mustache rides.... but I am much faster due to the decreased wind resistance.

I never say I don't have time to wait when I talk to salesmen. That tells the manger that you are in a hurry and if that is the case, you will never get the best price that they can give. At the same time, I refuse to wait on them. It is a fine line IMHO.
