Hope this helps you negotiate a better deal.
Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Where can I get a bug shield for my black Tundra?
My local truck accessories stores said they don't have any.
After being told MSRP was fair and that other Toyota dealers are offering a profit of $2,500 to any dealer willing to give up a Tundra, we are going to wait a year and reconsider when the 2001 models come out. I told the dealer someone else will have to pay MSRP and that we are not addicted to 'looking cool' going down the road. First year Corvette body styles sell for a premium when released but those paying the prices take a big hit a year or two down the line.
I would like to have one but not willing to pay a substantial percentage of a year's salary to bend over to a car dealer. My old '85 Chevy will suffice for another year.
That Indiana plant will crank out enough Tundras to fill demand. Time is the factor.
On the other hand if I could buy at a $2500 +- discount to sticker ... I am ready to do it today!
Now we wait and see just how long it takes them to get it here.
I know what you mean as far as trying to visualize how a bug shield will work on the Tundra. It is very simple, there are two L shaped bracket. One is attached 6.75" left of center of the hood the other 6.75" right of center. About 2" from each end there is an extension of plastic moulding into the shield itself. All 4 extensions keep the shield from touching the paint. In fact, even at high highway speeds the flex in the plastic touch not come close to hitting the hood. It looks like OEM to me.
For any comfort, I ordered the same bug shield from detailshop.com where Cwirth had mentioned. It is easy to install and it looks great. The clearance between the hood and the shield is plenty enough to wax.
I tried to use them and they currently can't do business in Texas even though they are based in Austin, TX. They are working on it on a "Daily baises", but they can't tell me when.
on a fully loaded LTD ACCESS cab.
I know you can do better, but 1000 over cost is much better than some of these prices I have seen.
I think I have seen a price as low as 359.00 over invoice from one message.
Thanks for the feedback, I have been dinking around with Carorder and Carsdirect for weeks. I called your man in Marshall,Tx some 4 hours drive away close to Shreveport,La, " perfect distance to break in on a test drive", and he is COMMITTED to $600 over the actual invoice. I spoke with 5 Houston dealers who said they can't even buy them for that.
I ordered my Truck which will be a White 2WD, Extended V8, with CK,WL,T-1,A-1,DH,DZ,L1,BL,LF and a few more for $23,260. The wait was worth every minute. now I can use the Continental special fares of $69 round trip and just use the one way flight of 20 Minutes and drive my truck back when it arrives.
I feel very good about the service and price. Kudos to the Internet and you for sharing your fortune.
I live in Calif. the price I got was msrp 27,544,carorder price 27,414.
WOW!!! A savings of 130.00.
For your info........
quoted a price for Tundra access 4x4 limited,
leather, for $1000 over invoice. Sunday got on
Carorder and price was $475 over MSRP. Contacted Carorder and response was "sorry price only good for 7 days." Today (Tuesday) price is $500 under MSRP. Far cry from the $1000 over invoice from last week. Carorder rep said they are not sure why price has gone up so much and was told "Go to dealer if you are unhappy with the price". She must have worked for a Toyota Dealer before going to Carorder. She may be looking for new job when Carorder's orders go down/down/down. Checked other cars on Carorder and those prices are way up too. It's a shame that Carorder has done this. Also this change in price from last week had nothing to do with my zip code. Wish I would have place my order before last Friday.
I love my Tundra.
Be patient. I can't...!
call them myself.
