That's over at Tempe.. Showcase and them tried to get me in a FBP coupe w/ navi for right around 28,500 OTD.. They wouldn't budge. I ended up getting it at Bell for about 25,200 OTD. Not too great a deal, but only was I was going to get an FG2 at a reasonable price in FBP.ibanez37, what dealership is that, so I know to avoid it. When I was car shopping I knew I just wanted a FBP FG2 and so I used that to screen dealerships. I called all but the 2 in the very far east valley (one in Chandler and the other in east Mesa) and I can't tell you how many of them wanted to sell me one with about 2.5k tacked on. I mean, come on! This was September 07, not like November 05 when these were brand spanking new.
I know I did not get the best deal ever but man I feel bad for all the people who don't shop around and check out sites like 8thcivic and Edmunds.
nope hella broke..Hey SIcBoy, I haven't been to any shows since that one over on west Roosevelt. Done anything with your TW fg2?
Damn before or after taxes? 21 OTD is a steal for this market IMO.Yeah I went to showcase and was there for a total of about 5 minutes. The guy told me he had a few on the lot and when I asked him where they were he was like, well come on in and we will talk about it. I told him I just wanted to look at the prices and then I asked him if they were selling with a market adjustment. Salesman told me they were going for around 25k so I thanked him and walked away.
I got mine at Arrowhead on 10-10-07. I had bought a 07 there 5 months earlier (vehicle was totaled) so I went there asking if they could deal seeing how I was a repeat customer. I had to wait about 6 weeks for it to be delivered but I didn't care.
I paid 21,190 for a base coupe. I know there are better deals out there across the country but Phoenix seems most of the dealerships have inflated prices. The salesman actually came out with the old chestnut "we shouldn't even be selling it this cheap". Don't get me wrong, he (Dustin) was a great salesman and he actually knew about cars and performance, but I was disappointed when he said that. Cheapest other Si I have seen in Phoenix was a 07 RR FG2 going for 21,500 with a some add ons such as summer tires and a bunch of stuff I didn't want (mud gards, wheel locks, weak tint). They had the car stickered for 25,XXX but they wanted to sell it. I thought about it for a few days but I really wanted FBP and I just ended up waiting.
Why is the Phoenix market so inflated? I have seen so many posts of members across the country buying Si's at or slightly below invoice. Not one of these members live in Phoenix or Tucson. Even CA prices seem slightly better and the cost of living there is generally greater.
Horrible enough for me lol. We need to find these fools paying premiums for the Si's that screwed us over. :lildevil:No I wish it was OTD. It was closer to 23.5 OTD. I was quoting the sticker price. My salesman told me they sell at MSRP but "somehow" they usually self base models for around 22,200. Hot horrible for the market but again it seems much more then other parts of the country.

2008 Honda Civic Sdn 4dr Man Si Mugen - $30,135.00
Oh ok that makes sense then. I thought there wasn't a markup on the Mugen, and that wasn't making sense. Those are crazy prices though man......damn. 35k for the Mugen ftl, but i think someone on here would still consider that a good deal.Same dealer.. those are both the MSRP. In reality, I think they have a $5K markup on top of the MSRP on the Mugen.
