jonathan18: I did a ring-around dealers a couple of weeks ago looking for the best price for the car we were after (no, not a fancy European model, but a Mazda 6 Ltd wagon); I managed to find that, while some initially offered it to me at list price (at that time, about $61k), others were more forthcoming - the best I got offered by a few dealers was $48,500.


so which were the best dealers for discounting?  was looking myself a couple of months back...


I was offered the same $48,500 drive-away price (so including registration etc) by Mazda dealers in (I think) Palmerston North, Napier, Wellington and Auckland (one of the John Andrew's dealerships). The reality is one dealer tends to at least match what another is offering... You'll see many selling the s/h ones (6 Limited wagon) at the same sort of price or higher on TM; the only ones I've seen as cheap as what we bought in a private sale have white leather - ideal for a family with two young kids!

surfisup1000: I asked BMW for some kind of discount, but they flat-out refused. 

So, left and never returned. 

I guess I'm one of those people who likes to haggle a bit and if the other party refuses to play then I walk away. 


Given that new car sales are booming probably it might be a bit harder to negotiate a discount in that kind of market. 


I recall being offered pretty decent discounts at BMW about 5 years ago, but ultimately I imported my own and saved 35%


did the same, imported mine from the UK was cheap as + better bang for your buck, given it wasn't flash or new or anything but it was a bloody nice car for what I landed it for. smile
