Introducing the new ride...

I know some of you have seen me go back and forth trying to make a decision on going FI on my 07 or buying a Terminator.I have spent over a year to find the perfect Terminator which included back and forth trips to Dallas.About a month ago I found one....2003 black, catback and short shift the only mods,27k miles for $19.9 and located in Houston.So I called the day I saw it and it had a deposit from a buyer flying in from Kansas to pick her up.I even called the day of pickup to see if the deal fell through....no luck.So another dream of owning a Terminator shattered.

I put the 07 (which id paid for) on CL,4 months and not one single call.So I decided to take it to the dealer and see what I could get on a straight purchase.I ended up driving a 5.0 and....game over.

Being a sales manager myself helped alot with getting the price I wanted.Here is how it went:

Salesman: $14k for your trade stock,$3800 down,$1500 ttl,$555/$565 per month for 3yrs

Me:Absolutely not....if you cant keep my payment at $300 max and stretch it as long as possible then its not happening.Also im not paying anything down or ttl today.

Salesman:$16k for your car with all the aftermarket parts left on,$365 per month.

Me: No

Salesman: $16k and you keep your wheels...?

Me: No

Salesman: What would "you" take for the car?

Me: $18k is my bottom dollar and I leave everything on it and a max $300 payment.

He comes back with the sales manager and he says,"$18k for your trade, finance $18k,$298 per month @ 4.2%

Me: Lets do this....

With that being said,I am officially a owner of a 2011 5.0 6spd, black on black, premium, bluetooth, sync, heated seats ect. with 3.73 option.

Mods: Roush axelbacks for now....

This is my 5th Mustang and the best to date.It is a joy to drive and is only going to get better!

Pics are in my albums and garage.

Nice new car DDTCM!!!!

I am sorry to hear about that Terminator deal going south! I had a deal go south on me too but a month later I took delivery of my 03 Sonic Blue Drop Top like I had always dreamed of. You have a nice platform to work from with that 2011! Keep us all updated with mods and dyno specs. CONGRATS!!!

Re: Introducing the new ride...

Very nice....just goes to show that if you are persistent and dominate the negotiating, you'll come out getting the deal YOU wanted. The majority of the people in that situation would've folded at the second offer of 16k for the 07 and the 365 payment.

I've been yet to actually see a 2011 at my local dealership because the ****s won't order any due to "lack of interest in that particular vehicle"...their excuse is that they have 2 pre 2010 used v6's and one 2010 v6 and that's plenty of mustangs for this area.

I told them there's no chance of me buying one from them then if I can't even sit one!...but anyways end rant...looking at yours it looks damn nice, and the interior looks pretty sexy as well.
