Dealer trade gone wrong

So, they didn't have a base GT in black with Brembo & 3.73's anywhere within the dealer trade region. Finally found one but as it was on it's way down here the trailer wrecked The only one left close to what I want is a Kona Blue GT Premium with Brembo, 3.73 but it also has accessory package 5. Should I get it or order and wait 3 months? This one would be 4K more. If I do my tradein will depreciate more. Below is a link to a similar car

Are the window louvers, side scoops, and hood scoop easily removed?

Umm id tell them ur going to order ur car and wait but only because the idiot trailor driver wrecked the car u were oreginally going to get and u all ready have to wait! because of that that they r going to honer what they said at first for tradein and if they dont wanna play ball on that ur not going to buy from them at all simply because of the extra hassel and wait alone and if they try to pull "if u order it ull b waiting 3 months for it blah blah" then it easy as "well i wouldnt be waiting at all if ur idiot driver didnt wreck the first one to begin with. I didnt wreck it y should i have to cover cost on that?" done deal to make customer happy!

If you can't find the car you want, I suggest you just order it. It sounds like it will be cheaper and even though you have to wait a while, you will end up getting the car you want.

I decided to go with it. It will cost an extra 50 a month but it is nice and I can't wait 2 months.

If your willing to pay more and rip all the accents off, u might as well find a other dealer maybe a little out of your area and find the one u want for the price u want... Or order it

Re: Dealer trade gone wrong

The dealer is going to swap out the hood with another on their lot, they will also take the side scoops and window louvers. Their crediting me 85% of the reatil cost of those items

It was a flat bed. From I take it the car flew off I'm trying to get pics. The funny part is that the accident occured with a GTO

---------- Post added at 02:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:39 PM ----------

Went to look at it today in the sunlight. Something I noticed is that shift knob is not alluminum, it looks like the base GT knob, and the cup holders didn't look as if they had the ambient lighting. Looked like a solid plastic peace. I thought both of these were std. on GT premium.

It may be a package deal. I thought it was to. Among other reasons that is why I choose the pony pkg over the base V6. The aluminum looks much nicer in my opinion.

The shift knob is only upgraded if you get the 401a interior package. The 400a has the same seats and trim inside as the base gt.

The ambient lighting is standard on the gt prem.

400a does have aluminum shift accents as well as ambient lighting. It's standard on all premiums. 401a just gets you the strip in the seats, whoopee. I prefer non striped.

Also, different door inserts and a different shift knob. The dash panels are also different. I think you're getting confused about the little chrome like strips around the shifter, air vents, and instrument cluster.

The 400a gets a aluminum color cap over a round shifter. I've asked a few people that have the same exact car build.

It really doesn't matter. I had a 401a 2010 and I like the "normal" shifter better. Both were/are in bad need of replacement of a short shifter.
