    LOL. No, the dealer was really quite accommodating and gave us no pressure at all. In fact, when I asked him which trim level HE would buy, he said the Touring w/PP. Reverse psychology perhaps, but he didn't try overtly to steer us in any particular direction. When he started to talk about add-ons at the desk, I told him I wasn't interested at all, and he didn't try to push any further. All in all, a nice experience, so far. Let's see what happens when I go to pick up the car ... I expect the general manager or the "finance" guy will try to boost profit before I'm out of there.

    I always tell salespeople to leave me on my own...I'm great at up-selling myself.

    Interesting the turn the sales experience taken.

    They moved the hard-sell guy from the front end of the process and put him on the back end after the deal has been closed and you're not gonna walk away.

    I have already told the GM that I don't want to be hassled with the great upsell when I pick up the car. If he starts talking about protecting my "investment," I'll tell him politely that a car is not an investment ... it's a depreciating asset which is likely to lose at least 25% of it's value the minute I drive off the lot.

    But...but...but...don't you want the guy who sweeps the shop floor to spray some ill-defined crap on your interior for the low, low price of $599.99??????

    Hey, I'm not dumb ... they'll reduce it to $499 if I agree right then and there. Such a bargain!

Besides, you only go around once, and I decided to treat myself for a change since I've always had cloth seats.
    yeah..but once you go leather you need the heated seats in the Winter and ventilated seats in the Summer...welcome GTR and Signature..lol
