I have yet to figure out why what somebody else pays for a car is such a volitile issue with other people. It's like a game to see who can pay the least for the car. In my world, I don't worry about what others pay, I go by "If you're willing to write the check, the price isn't too high."
Don't you think that the ones who pay above MSRP
for a car, know that they have almost a certain chance of losing that amount when they sale the car? It's their money, for heaven's sake, they can do with it as they please.
The only reason I can see for worrying about what some one else pays, is either, 1) it's your inheritance they are spending, 2) you will be paying the notes, 3) it stops you from being able to buy it. If it's none of these, "Why care?"
I would bet, when the time comes for you to sell your car, you will have the same opinion as the dealer.....sell it for what you think it is worth. If one thinks they can get more than blue book
, they usually try....if it doesn't sell, then the price starts to come down.....just like a dealer. I would never call any one "greedy" for doing that.....it's a capitalist country we live in.
The same game could be played for modding out a car....not everyone is going to pay the same prices to get a car modded.
