Predictions as to how much Stevens Creek Subaru will sell the STi for.

Assuming MSRP is 32k.

I predict 41k.


What do you guys say?

Since they tried to markup the WRX to 5K over msrp, I'll go with 7500 over MSRP.

at this point, specially w/ a new release of a car that is in high demand.

why sell it at msrp?

if a sales guy can get 2-3-5 thousand and someone is willing to pay for it... i don't see anything wrong w/ that.

if i have 2 STI delivered to me... i wouldn't sell it at MSRP if some other guy is going to walk in and pay me more for it?!

i don't think its a crime to sell this car over MSRP.

Broken Arrow - if you only had 5 STI allocated for your store for the first month... you're telling me you are going to sell it at MSRP?

Actually, there are quite a few that are selling at MSRP. That one dealer on here said with a $500 deposit, you his Sales Manager would give MSRP. At MSRP, they are making a rake, but, that is fair...

I feel as though gouging (I.e. Stevens Creek, and Roseville) is unsat.

Personally, I am waiting for somebody to sell one used...then I will buy an STi.

Supposedly, Mitsu has prohibited it's dealers from selling at over MSRP...that is what I read on EvolutionM anyways.

greed?

its actually called the law of supply and demand in an open marketplace.

just like your car. you wanted 17k... but no takers... everybody was asking for 14.5... so if you got a lot of offers at 14.5 i would have to say the market value of your car is about that. why did you ask for 17k... greed? ofcourse not! its how selling works.

its actually why ebay is such a success.

let me give you another example young man.

when the PS2 first came out.... u go online and you can get your hands on one by 20-30% over retail prices... same w/ the new PS2 network adapter... selling @ ebay for more. again, another good example of supply and demand.

its not greed. its called smart adaptation in the market.

shure broken arrow can sell for MSRP.... at the first week of release ALL the STI are gone... except for which ones? yup! das rite.. .the ones asking 3-4 gran over MSRP... and i can assure you that someone will be buying it.
