MSRP + 1500? tell them to take a flying leap.

I understand its all part of the negotiating game, but i take it as a personal insult when they act like people are stupid enough to really accept an offer like that.

As far as I'm concerned it can sit there for another year till they find the appropriate sucker. I vote on ordering up that 2012.

To summarize:

- The car was ordered by a person who eventually couldn't buy it. They decided to keep it and eventually did the mods to see if it attracted other clients' attention. They had other modded Mustangs on the lot, with Roush kits etc.

They call these mods "Racer 2" package, which comprises:

- Custom Front spoiler
- Custom Rocker pavels
- Side scoop kit
- Custom decklid spoiler
- custom rear bumper cover
- racer2 graphics
- carbon fiber interior trim kit
- rear window louvers

The stripes and hood looked very nice, but I didn't like the interior at all, so I didn't show much interest. They decided to quote me a price anyway, and asked approx. the car's original MSRP + $1,500.

Fwiw, the dealers were very friendly and seemed open to negotiate further.
Thanks for the pics, I don't like all this stuff at all...

EXACTLY! all the crap they did that they want to charge 1500 over MSRP for, HURTS the car. Makes it look like crap.

I guess thats subjective.. but I sure as hell wouldn't do it to my car, and wouldn't want those things on it even if they gave it to me for free.

Thanks a lot everyone.

I didn't mind the exterior mods (although I wouldn't have paid for them), but I really hated the interior, so I won't be pursuing that car any longer.

I saw another car later in the day (with no mods), which is now my alternative to the order. Separate thread on that one:


2011 GT Kona Blue - Saddle 400a, 6MT, 3.55, Electronic, Brembo, Glass Roof, HID, Security, Comfort, RearVC, GT500 Mufflers, Procal tuner, Vorshlag brake lines, Boss/CS Fascia, Brake cooling ducts
