I personally don't reckon 22k is worth it. As much as I like V8s and all that.

Get them to close the gap to more like $15-18k and then you're talking. $22k is too big a gap IMO. Ie they don't have to give you any more than $35K for yours, they just need to drop the price of the new one to around $52 - 53K

What are they offering with the XR8, I hope it has atleast leather, premium sound and 18's for that offer.

Agreed, 57k is alot I would expect nothing less than fully optioned! For around 3k more you may pick up a demo GT, or alternatively demo XR8's are now going for around $52 on road new (floor stock).

I would say they may have inflated your trade in price to keep you happy, then offset it with your purchase cost. The money has to come from somewhere.

Okay the options that i want are, sss auto (bad left knee)
cloth trim (fiance is vegan)
matching spare wheel-alloy
premium brakes
boot scuff guard
side air bags
alarm system
tinted windows
power adjustable pedals
premium sound 6 stacker & sub
sports steering wheel
boot liner
dash mat (sun glare in the 6 is a bitch)
momo sports shifter
scuff plates x2
carpet mats x 4
also forgot to say that the XR6 has had $5600 worth of damage done to it, I had only had it for 10 days and some young P plater smashed into the arse of me, you cant tell that its been hit but i will always know it not the same.

Yes i do wear leather shoes and i go hunting i'm a meat eater, MY FIANCE is the vegan, not me !!!!!!!!!!!!

I know they have bunped up the price, but its easy to play the dealers off agenst each other for the price i want.

Went to coffey ford Dandy, this morning they offerd me the same $35k, and $25,400 to change over to the 04 BA XR8, the sales guy knew what he was on about - saw the arse end and asked if it had a cat back or full herrod system, didnt even look under the bonnet !!!
Was thinking for $25k could have it ALL moded by Herrod, unichiped, lowered,wheels,
brakes,suspention,springs, BLOWN !!!!!! (just for u casper !!!!!!!!) this sound like a better plan what do u guys think ?

Well sounds like you have the $$$ sitting around, so better invested in the current ride I reckon and you will beat nearly all V8's, or buy an ex-demo V8, new cars depreciate so quickly its ridiculous.

Why not wait til october and upgrade to the F6 Typhoon? Supposedly with 280kw Turbo motor and 6 speed auto - that would be worth the difference!

Who's to say your replacement car won't have a ding in 10 days following by another P-plater? Or damaged in transit to the dealer? If it's running mechanically ok, why trade it in? Mine's had a bingle too and I was thinking of trading it up at one stage. If I were you I'd wait, there are too many "goodies" worth waiting for in BAII.
