I just got a call from a local Northern NJ Chevy Dealer. They said that they are now taking deposits on the C6. They also informed me that it would be $5000. over MSRP!!! What a deal, huh. I said, I guess your one of the dealers that stick it to people huh. Anyway - it is very dissipointing that dealers want to goudge us for a car that already had a prity good margin built in it already! Very depressing!! So, I bid them goooood buy!!! As for me, I would go buy a BMW M3 before I pay that! I would hope you all feel the same and don't pay it!!!

List +? Never!! We, who are planning to get the C6, should wait until a snowy day in January! Lets see how much above list they are selling them for then!!

Agreed ! !
Bad enough the kind of money these dealers make now this ???
You know once the hype is over so are the mark ups but some saps will pay. Must be nice to have so much extra cash to stroke thier ego !

The sad part is that there may be enough saps and few enough cars to keep those C6's from getting into the hands of true Corvette fans.

But it is those saps that will sell them with low miles in a few months after the newness of the car wears off. Which will allow some other corvette fans to get good deals on the C6.

A sad fact indeed ,,,, but it seems everytime a new special model arrives at any dealer it just happens ! And there will be folks that snap them up to be the first in their neighborhood to own one !

Hi,

There are a number of dealers across the country who will sell you a C6 for MSRP. I'm going through Tom Jumper in Atlanta. I believe Les Sanford in Michigan will as well.

I am wondering how fast this car is being ordered---my impression is that the above-invoice dealers may be doing this as a knee jerk reaction because it's a new model COrvette and not because of tremendous demand. Getting reliable information would be difficult, as dealers definately have an incentive to say "order now, or be frozen out of the market!!" If some will sell to you at MSRP I bet the ordering isn't that hot.

I bet there's a very close relationship between the people that will pay over MSRP and those that don't [know about the] wave...

My thoughts exactly!

The C6 will be the newest, hottest, coolest thing. After the people who have to have the newest, hottest, coolest thing find something else that is newer, hotter and cooler they will sell those C6s and I'm sure many will find their way to people who appreciate the Corvette heritage in addition to the cool-factor.
I'm also sure that some C6s will immediately find their way to Corvette appreciative homes right off the lot.

Im not quite sure about the C6 being the newest hottest, coolest thing! If you look at the car as an overall package, in my opinion, the interior falls way short of anything sporty. It is supposed to be modeled after the new GTO which, again in my opinion , is a joke! I have driven these cars for decades and this may be the first year I decide to go backwards instead of forwards.

Greenie, you are one tough critic. Everyone has an opinion on what does and doesn't look good....... Tastes vary....... But simply looking at the facts, it seems that your judgement is a bit harsh (or bitter?). The C6 remains true to its heritage, while advancing the art, with clean lines inside and out, a polite nod to its legendary ancestors, continued technological advancement, astounding performance (especially considering the price and the other cars in its class), and yet instantly recognizable as a vette. I agree with Heidi, the C6 is a very hot, and yet very cool ride. I can't wait to watch mine roll out of the plant, where the guy will hand me the key/Fob, and say congratulations. That will be an awesome day....

Save the wave,

Wayne, Im not bitter. What would I be bitter about? With the bucks Ive spent over the decades on these cars, Im entitled to my opinion. I have been critical about the interiors for a long time. They seem rather "cheap" and GMish if youll pardon the phrase! If this car is a true sports car, it should stand out from the crowd. The interiors have been misfit pieces of other GM cars ever since 1968. This car is the best bang for the buck no doubt. I just feel it could be so much more. The wave is saved!

Would you keep the business away from the after market guys! Just think of all the good stuff we can purchase after we buy the car! Its all good!

The General has missed with the C6, just like they did with the 2003! They had an opportunity to REALLY provide a tribute to the 50th anniversary and blew it! And, now with the C6 they say they are being innovative by getting rid of the "flip" headlights, et al! Where is the innovation - everything that is on the C6 is OLD news!

That always happen when a new model/redesign comes out. People will pay top dollar, even over sticker to be the first ones to have it. I' will just wait until the rush is over and the C6 is out for a little while, than I will go and get one. I have a Vette now and still I love it. It is not like there won't be any around.

I live in Northern NJ as well and would like to know the name of the dealership so I can make sure I never give them any business ....


Corvette or otherwise..

MSRP I believe..below MSRP is ok...but when they do that market adjustment bull sh!t...I never shop with them on anything..



Thanks

BTW..supporting vendors here will deliver to you at MSRP or better...

MSRP is what they are asking for if you order it now.....2004 models are 10 000. Under MSRP...Can$ that is.

well, since everyone has the right to there own opinion here is mine. i think the
new c6 will be a great step forward for gm the technology that is being used
in this car has never been used in any production vehicle in the US. the use
of carbon fiber alone is a great leap forward for the US car market not to
mention all the other high tech goodies that have been released in this generation
just look at the specs its damn near ready for the track right out of the box.
as most of the generation the subtle changes will only make the car better as the
production continues thru the years. thats just my opinion ,but who am i anyway.lol

So true. 5K to 10K over msrp for the 97 when it first hit the dealers. Now they (new C5) sell for 8K to 10K off sticker. I will pass on the C6 for a few years. I will buy a Z06 in the fall.

Well if the local Nissan dealership had not been scalping the 350 Z cars that i was there to buy ,I wouldn't have ended up with my C5. To them at the dealership i say many thanks.

Wow! Your original preference was a 350 Z over a C5? Amazing! The world works in mysterious ways.....

a 350 Z before a C5 .....wow talk about apples and oranges....or was that lemons?.......I'm glad you took the vette and I'm sure you're happy about it also.......I went back to the dealer again(yes again)......It's MSRP with downpayment and no date of delivery.They said something about a list.....I just nodded and left.......I can't believe that there are more people in the "know" in this club then there are at that dealership...:eyerole
