Yah, Maybe I need to look into a different tire I guess. Every 3 months changing a tire is getting a little old. So nice to have new tread though. BUGOUT is right the weather is looking perfect, a little chilly in the morning but for us this is quite an improvement. Should be a gorgeous ride tomorrow. Bring sunglasses....

Here is the DQ. Hopefully some last minuters show up. I am bringing GPS, but that doesn't mean we won't get a little lost. More fun that way......

Sorry Brian. Ya they always say "it will only take 30min" bullshit. You'll be there most of the day I bet. Good Luck Stand your ground, walk away if you have to. Last car I bought I walked away and they called me the next day with a better offer. Salesmen suck.............

The best offer is usually spoken to the back of your head as you're headed for the door.

If the salesman sucks your in the wrong place...I always find the place that has what I want, have cash or fincnacing AHEAD of time... and call ahead with pre-approval, the only reason car sales man ussualy suck is over financing agreements and setting out the four square...findign financing etc, the worse your credit the more miserable this part of the experience is...

Get that out of the way, and you dictate the process and fore the most part if your reasonable the price. I have bought several vehicles recently , never speant more than 40 minutes onsite with financing paper work...cash? cut that in half. Just know what you want ahead of time.

A good place to start is Chuck Colvin, great group of guys down there and they have been aorund since 1911,...good year :)

If they have some thing you want, get preapproved before you go down if you dont have cash...works everytime. YOu cant just wonder on to a lot, with out a goal, and expect it to go smooth...

Set up a deal ahead of time over phone, ...so you dont waiste anyones time, then when you go in, if they finaggle out of the verbal agreement from the phone, then walk, ....you always get it.

Make sure finaly price is out the door, freight, dmv etc...

Worst part is the vehicle I want is in Seattle. Long drive just to check it out and then walk out the door when they don't accept my offer. I'll see what I can do about negotiating over the phone before I head up, but still not looking forward to wasting a perfectly good sunny day in a cage. I just need to keep telling myself there will be more sunny days coming up, but after going through winter, it's pretty damn hard to pass one up.
