I suggest using this thread as a place to offer anything for your fellow LARS.
I also suggest replies be made only by PM to keep it organized.
Just a suggestion, but do wutchyalike.
I'll start. See below.
I have a service to offer:
Without mentioning any names, I work in the Parts & Service Division of a well known Japanese automaker.
I have been asked several times by LARS members whether or not I can get them a discount.
Eight lucky people a year can buy a new car at a good discount.
For 2007, I've already used up 6 of those slots, and 2008 is right around the corner. Unfortunately, I get bupkus for doing this.
Here's how the pricing works:
Minus VPP discount (Nissan 2.87% : Infiniti 1.65%)
Plus dealer added options, Security Plus, Infiniti Extended Protection Plan, etc.
Plus 2.5% delivery fee of dealer invoice after VPP discount has been subtracted
Plus destination and handling charge
Minus applicable incentives
Equals participant's purchase price
This isn't an endorsement, but I did it for KC Chief's and former Cal Tight End Tony Gonzalez's cousin, who was my wife's co-worker's brother-in-law...I'll be glad to do it for a fellow LARSer rather than usual wife's coworker's brother's friend.
PM me if you want it.
