You don't start with I lowball, you say sticker, I come up 20K and you come back with sticker +1K because you forgot you added VIN etching and lojack.

There is such a limited market for the car in this region because... snow... and there are better cars out there that have more power for a lot less. I hope they do sell it and get what they want for it. But it seems unlikely. There's nothing to compare to determine FMV so he's using what he paid for it as a guide. We went over the carfax and other information I have line-by-line. He's playing a shell game transferrring the car between his own entities to make it look like the car is a new addition to his inventory.

If it's not sold by October they will come back again I'm sure. We left it at yes, we want it... whenever you are ready to sell it or tired of looking at it. Maybe I'm being a douche canoe and if I am... please tell me. I think we are being fair about it.
the used market was going to 'crash' eventually. when all the prices spiked, it was only a matter of time before someone was left holding the hot potato.

but any dealer playing the 'new car!' shell game is likely not worth dealing with at any price.

Garage
We purchased three used vehicles during the pandemic. The Jag was an amazing buy - a 2017 coming off a commercial lease with very low mileage. They offered us a fair price for a turn key 2016 Maxima Platinum edition and sold our trade in 3 days at a 50% premium to what we were given - and it was still a fair price to the new owner.

This transaction would be no different. A garage kept 2020 Lexus IS 350 F Sport with low mileage and a clear title that they could sell in a week with no effort. All they would have to do is wash it. They might not get 50% on it but they could make up for what they would lose on our deal and get both off the books.

Third car was a 2013 Mini Cooper from CarMax. Not a great deal but we weren't gouged either.

Probably crinkled your nose at her when she was trying to talk to you. Can't waffle around with Moms.

Chancla justice is a great take on a theme. First time I heard about shoe-throwing was from Eddie Murphy. I got the belt.

Only if you count sticking your head in other guys crotches, playing footsies, and throwing the ball away when someone gets close to you macho...
