I got my XC July 1 for $12,900 OTD, all in. I added sump guard, engine guards, and centerstand at 15% off, added them to the deal, sign and drive, no pain, $262 per month X 60. Didn't even negotiate - that was the deal they presented, was good enough for me to jump in. I like the dealer to make some money on them. I don't care to beat them down to cost, makes you look like a penny-pinching cheap-ass. Instead I'm a preferred customer and get the royal treatment everytime I walk in there.
I do all my own service. First oil change at 250, again at 1400 to full synthetic.
I think you can buy a new car for that. Oh well, wouldn't be nearly as much fun as the Tiger.
Funny, wifey just leased a new Mercedes coupe and the payments aren't even a hundred dollars more.
