Pissing off dealers is the best. I did this very well when I bought my WJ. I went in, just kind of looking around, as my ZJ had just gotten totalled out. Not really expecting to buy anything, as I hate buying cars from Dealerships, I just like test driving them. Well, a guy I knew worked at the dealership and said, "you gotta see this WJ we just got in". So he took me around the back and showed me this silver WJ. It was pretty dirty as the people had just traded it in that day. Drove it, liked the way it drove, it really did need a good wash, but it was nice. Get to the dealership and ask what they want for it. They want $15,900. (99 WJ Limited, 81k, very good condition) 15,9, with my $1500 down payment with no trade brought the payments to like $460 a month or something outrageous like that. Well, they always make you fill out the paperwork saying "if you get the price down to this (always a number they won't sink to) I'll buy today" Well, I put, that I would buy if they got the payments down to $220 a month, with $1500 down. They bs me, and bs me some more and get it down to like 350, 300, etc, which I'm still saying no to. Well during this time, somebody miscommunicated with their boss, who in turn miscommunicated with someone else telling them that they came to a deal with me and it was sold. Well, that was far from the truth, all I had agreed to was 220 a month, with 1500 down. Finally, the sales manager walks up to me. He says, "Look, my finance manager told me that you were going to buy this car, I told the (head honcho guy, can't remember what hes called) that you were buying it. Now you are backing out because you hadn't agreed to a price yet. What do I have to do to save face so I can sell you this car?" I replied with "220 a month, 1500 down." He punched some numbers in his computer, and turned the screen to me. "If we do this, we are only making 200 dollars on the car based on what we traded it in for. Plus, we put new tires and brakes in it so we are actually losing money" He showed me the screen, something customers are not supposed to see. I said, "Thats my deal, I'm sorry if you can't make it work" Next thing I know, I see him in a heated discussion with a guy, comes over, has me sign some paperwork without talking to me, and walks off all pissed off. Ended up getting it for less than the employee price on vehicles there. It was awesome.
Sorry for the book, but it humors me.
