Where I live you can get your full deposit back if you haven't sign the bill of sale. Most buyers have no idea about their rights. Nearly 10 years ago, a friend of mine placed an order on a Mazda then changed his mind later. He only got 1/2 if his deposit back because the salesman said they could have sold the car if it wasn't on hold for my friend. Of course that was full of bullshit but he accepted it without knowing his right to have the money back. Many dealers will lie to customers about not being able to have full refund on the deposit or takes very long time to do so. They want to hold your money and hope that you will change your mind about canceling your purchase. Just an old trick to hook buyers without much experience.

OP you should be able to get your money back. I am pretty sure consumers should be protected on this part.

I think I saw a FB coupe locally asking for 102k at dealership. Just amazed how people are still paying that crazy $$$. Saw a monte Carlo blue coupe sold for 96k last year and picked up by some guy looked younger than 18 yr old. Maybe that's the reason these stealerships have the guts asking those insane numbers.

That's pretty serious looking for a stock exhaust and muffler. Big pipes and not too huge and heavy looking muffler at all. I think you'd have to try pretty hard (read: spend a lot of money) to do any better.

Yep there is always a need for a third car or even a fourth.... no perhaps that's a little to much

PS our 1M is also for the lady of the house ( at least on weekdays)

Good luck.

+1 (Advevo might be the first one posting that video himself).


My request would be a shot of the part number label on the front shocks (Front: Turn wheel in all the way, then insert hand with small camera in wheel well and direct towards slightly above the wheel hub.
