2015 BRZ series blue for 26k listed?

It has less than 5k miles on it, no accidents reported, clean car fax report.

Is this too good to be true, and I should be cautious of it?


If not, do you think I could negotiate the price a little?

I know that's a pretty good deal already, but I'd love to haggle it down

The dealer must have no idea what he has on his hands and thinks it's just a regular brz somebody mighty modded. I'd try to chip the price down some more.

It's a used BRZ...I'd say that is 26 is even a little on the high side. You could get a brand new Limited for that much.

brand new limited for 26k? where do you live if you don't mind me asking? the prices here on a brand new BRZ limited is far more...

Plus this is a series blue, so take that into consideration.


How much is a fair price in your opinion?

I'm in New England. That's pretty much the going rate around here, especially with winter coming. I understand the Series Blue is around 30k, but I don't think 4k is enough to make being the second owner of the vehicle worthwhile. Plus, you have no idea how it was treated in that time. That's my opinion.

I think the price is a little high. If there's still stock available, you could get a brand spanking new one for only $2-3k more.

I know it's Chicago, but for comparison I just bought a BRZ Series.Blue for $27,000 + TTL, and it only had 9 miles on the odometer :P

They've only been out a few months, it's a 2015 car, couldn't have been too bad unless it's been wrecked.

I'd go for it!

I got my 2015 Series.Blue for 27,500 + TTL, so 26k for a very slightly used...Probably on the high side though, the initial depreciation hit should be bigger I'd assume

I just got a series blue and looked/spoke with a lot of dealers in Florida and I was seeing a lot of 26-27 for limiteds. Just did a quick search of autorader and saw a used limited with 3k miles for 26k so I say it's not too bad. Definitely try and talk them down but I don't think it's too far off.

I would do some more research around your area just to be sure. You can get great deals and use the extra money on some really sweet mods.

I got a brand new limited for 26k. Even though it's a series blue, I dont think I would pay 26k for a used one with 5k miles.
