Did you pay around MSRP?

I'm wondering if you have a better bargaining position if you're buying off the lot as apposed to ordering.

Paid msrp... Was not able to bargain at all.... Too many people wanting the car, and too few not spoken for.... Moved quick and pulled the trigger!

Performance Snows?, my Wintersport M3s are just as stickey as the OEM Pirellis
Ick... I have had them, don't like them... I sacrifice dry performance in the winter for snow performance.

Plus it teaches you a lot about car control on soft flexy tires... all about being smooooth.

Ha! gotcha
I know the soft flexy pretty well, spent last three winters in a 06 Silverado SS 2wd running on Blizzaks. minus 3 from oem 20's and still over 100mph plenty. And ran studded Hakkapiltas on wifeys VolvoR. Love me some snows...

LMK when you're in Suffield :thumbup: I may even be in an R by then if the stars align
