    MSRP is $37,xxx with DVD,NAV and leather. I was given a quote of $31,900. I wanted to find the money factor and residual.

    Go to the Nissan 350Z: Lease questions topic. You'll probably get a better answer there. It's in the "Prices Paid: Buying and leasing experiences" forum.

    Hi movistar. This car's lease program varies by term and mileage allowance. For now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 350Z Touring Coupe with 15,000 miles per year are .00295 and 51%, respectively.

    What's list price?

    Have you checked the true market value feature on the Edmunds home page?
  • imgigabitimgigabit Posts: 6
    You mean dealer invoice? It is 31,150. TMV from Edmunds is 32849.
  • biancarbiancar Posts: 913
    That would indicate that $31,300 is a pretty decent price then. You're under the Edmunds' TMV by a bit, and just slightly over invoice. For an '07, I'd say that's great. If you want it, jump on it.

    07 350Z Roadster (Ragtop)
    Carbon Silver with Frost

    MSRP: $38,865

    Selling Price: $36,250 (Invoice of $35,929)
    $321.00 OVER Invoice

    51% residual = $19,821
    36 Months
    MF of .02020

    Trade In "credit" of $3,859.00 - this will be my "out of pocket"/drive off and includes $595 acquisition fee and 1st mo payment (Therefore, I will not have to open the checkbook)

    ADJUSTED CAP COST: $32,987

    Base payment of $472.37 + 7.25% taxes ($34.25) = $506.62

    Paperwork has been signed but I have not yet "rolled" the car or "burned gas"

    Should I re-negotiate or is this a good deal?

    Got the last one at the dealer in Annapolis. Silverstone with black top, mats, wheel locks, out the door for $32,600 + TTL. MSRP was $38,675, car had 98 miles on it. Edmunds TMV for a certified used 2006 with 0 miles was $34,125 and Dealer TMV price was $32,889. I figured the certified used was the closest comparison point with the Dealer TMV price as the floor. So, I am a happy roadster today...

    Dadz - you got a great deal... I am in a similar situation with an NJ dealer, but he won't go below $34,900. Did you get the extras like carpets, splash guards, alum kick pl etc?
  • dadszdadsz Posts: 14
    Hi Ross99,

    Yep, the Z came with carpeted floor mats and trunk mat, splash guards, wheel locks, and alum. kick plate.

    Dealer had the car at $34,239 at the Nissan 'Tent Sale' event. After driving it with my wife, we talked a little about it. I used the TMV here as my negotiating tool. No matter what the dealer will say, the car is worth only what the TMV tells you in my opinion. As soon as you drive it off the lot, it's going to be in the TMV range. So you need to work with your dealer to get the price down around where mine was. Otherwise you are going to lose between $1,000 and $1,600 in depreciation while financing it over the term of your car loan.

    The dealer I worked with did not lose money (and I don't expect him to either). I saved him making another interest payment on the car's floorplan loan, he also has his holdback and any advertising money. He also has an inflated MSRP due to the transportation charge of $695. (No way does it cost that much to bring a car up from Norfolk to Annapolis). We had two rounds of negotiations over 45 minutes. In the end, they probably made a couple of hundred on the car, but they also got rid of their last 2006 and now can concentrate on making money on their 2007s.

    BTW same model 2007 Touring Roadster with the exact same options shows a sticker MSRP of $38,975 ($300 increase over 2006).

    Good luck with your dealer. It's a great car...

    Couple chips here and there, but a GREAT car driven by my mom. They wanted to make me a deal on the vehicle as it was babied and my folks decided to get a Benz. I am very conservative with my money and worried about getting a car that is expensive to operate. My 03 Tacoma is a great car, but my fiance's 180K Camry just died.

    Am I an idiot not to take this deal. They originally purchased the car for 42K all said and done. Any problems I need to worry about? Thanks everyone!
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,141
    That's less than wholesale in my neck of the woods, so yeah, you should jump on it, IMHO.

    other than eating tires, there's not much to worry about.

    '13 Stang GT; '86 Benz 300E; '98 Volvo S70; '12 Leaf; '14 Town&Country

  • dadszdadsz Posts: 14

    Jump on it. Don't worry about the tires either. Most of the 2005s were fine, it was the 2003s that most people complain about... that's a great deal...

    Mechanically, this is a very good car. With 21K miles, it's hardly even broken in. You should get YEARS of fun from the car.

    hey guys,

    i have been reading most of this thread... just wanted to find out what's the best price for the base model MANUAL 6 SPEED.... in southern california... bought... and from which dealership.... any extras they threw in...

  • biancarbiancar Posts: 913
    Just curious for why you want a base model?

    You might want to think about going up a notch or two to get traction control. Anecdotal evidence indicates that it's well worth it.
  • scrugh_77scrugh_77 Posts: 8
    well b/c it's my second car.. i don't want to put more money to make it luxurious and comfortable... i want it as a sports car...i was considering touring model but would rather save the $5K and keep that to fix up the base model..
  • biancarbiancar Posts: 913
    Well, OK, I get the not making it luxurious and comfortable part - but traction control has to do with basic safety. Doesn't matter if it's a second car or not. (Mine is a second car too.)

    Personally I think they shouldn't even sell the base model as currently equipped; I wish they didn't sell any model without traction control. Wish they would include that on the base model, with interior as is, and then the folks who also want the leather interior and what-not can step up to touring if they want, but everyone will have that basic protection.

    I've read in the forum about too many serious accidents to be "oh well, so what" about the base model.

    Your choice of course, just something you might do well to keep in mind.
