$5 million question:

Do I buy the car with everything I want but it has painted wheels, and I buy the polished later at $2k a set. Or pass up entirely?

I'm torn. Really hate paying $2k later for something that as a factory option, at my GMS cost, is $600 on the price.

Paint the wheels red to match.

I say yes or you're never going to find the car you want anytime soon.

A THUNDER GRAY V IN ALLENTOWN, PA!!!!! I checked it against cadillac.com and GM BuyPower GMS and it did not show up. I called to ask if they still have it and they do, for some reason it isn't showing up

Bad thing, it has everything EXCEPT the polished wheels....uh yeah, no idea why they didn't get that. To purchase the wheels separately...$3200!! Buy them on the car as an option...$900. See why I want them on the car Fab?

Anyway, already been talking with the guy, we'll see what he can do for me
What's the dealership? That's my backyard. I'll go beat people off of it til you get here.
If they have another car that has polished wheels on the lot and you'd make the trip up to buy it, I'd think you could talk them into swapping wheels.

Edit: Found it, they're a good dealership. Too bad the only crystal red is a 6cyl. All the rest are black and silver, what a surprise.

It's Scott Chevy/Cadillac, the car is in the showroom.

The final numbers have been set, no more negotiating. I have to decide whether I want to purchase. It's the only one they have, and even if they did have another with polished wheels you cannot swap, it would be an optioned factory item on the invoice and window sticker. They cannot sell the other car without the appropriate options unless they are willing to give the customer a nice reduction in price....which would kill their profit.

This dealer didn't even want anything to do with negotiating for the wheels bought through parts and put on. Nor did they want to dealer trade for any other one because my price is GMS (boo focing whooo to them...they are still going to make over $2000 from GM on the car which is decent profit for a new car sale)

this whole process the last 3 weeks blows my focking mind........who knew that the current state of auto sales was so lucrative that these dealers don't even have to go out of their way
to make a sale. They must be making money hand over fist!!!! People must be lined up each day to buy cars, so they don't have to chase other deals.

I'd wait, you have the loot, the ball is in your court. There has to be a V that has the options you want. You'll kick youself in the ass if you get a sweet CTS V with bleh wheels...

That's why I wouldn't buy my Camaro there. When I was looking they all had the fugly 21s and they wouldn't even try to negotiate with me to get rid of those. Hell they still have a '10 they want $45k for when the '11s are already coming off the trucks. Give me a fockin break. They can shove their 'market adjustments' up their ass.

Eh, the only difference is painted wheels? I'd just get the car, wheels are easy to change later with some sweet aftermarket replacements.

This whole process is becoming "not fun" anymore. It's become such a hassle it has taken away the excitement.....

LOL at SilverGAGT2002 attempting to come into the thread and start derailing trouble. FAIL.
