That is a great rate!

I don't doubt it. Margins on Fiats are miniscule. They probably already spent more holding it in inventory.

Fiat dealerships are non-profits...

Just signed everything, car is mine. I get it on Monday delivered to me. 2.89% @ 66 months.

Dealer said they didn’t make any money off the car ??‍♂
Seems about on par for dealer vehicle purchase loans these days. My recent purchase is at 2.49% for 5 years. But nothing beats the rate I got when I purchased my Spider.3 years ago. 6 years at 0%! That's like money in the bank... kind of... sort of... lol

Yeah, but I also got 0% provincial sales tax in Alberta. How much did that add to the cost of your car? :) I think we both got excellent deals on finance.

Just got a speeding ticket at Bee Cave for doing 59 on a 45 area going downhill in my Fiat 500 loaner.

Really need my Escort radar ASAP, from mattress and insurance sales reps to even the police officers, everyone here in Austin is a hustler out for my money!

I think in the future I might just save myself 100k and get a practical BMW or Porsche e-hybrid. I feel that on public roads I will REALLY not be able to enjoy a Corvette.

Don't know if they sell them in the USA but I bought a low miles demonstrator VW T-Roc 1.5 turbo SEL 2 years back as my daily driver, shopping, moving stuff, dog wagon handyman car and I still absolutely love it. It's classed as a small SUV, has all the toys and drives really well, handling, acceleration, braking and comfort.......Something I would recommend to anyone to consider............. plus it's built on the "Golf" platform. Cheers

That’s a nice looking car. I don’t think we have those here. I have a friend who brings his AWD Golf to the track and just kills it. Way faster than me.

6% tax is pretty decent. How does that work in Austin? So is that purely state tax or a combination? The reason I ask is purely from curiosity.

Here in Canada, we all (mutter, mutter, curse, curse) pay 5% federal sales tax called the GST (goods and services tax) on pretty much everything (with the exception of some, but not all, grocery items). Then all the provinces and territories have the equivalent of a provincial sales tax... with the exception of Alberta. We've never had one. And then to make it really entertaining, because one tax is applied on top of the other tax, some provinces have chosen to establish a combined single tax rate that includes both the provincial and federal taxes, which is called an HST (harmonized sales tax). One thing that's as sure of dieing is that governements love to tax the humble masses. lol

Just got a great deal on a 2019 brand spankin’ new unit for $26,200 in Austin, TX. MSRP is $32,895.

Manual, LED, Sensors, red seats.

Looking forward to getting a System One with the 2.5 performance crosspipe and a turbo blanket for now.
Great deal brother, hope to see you again when you come visit PR.

Austin cops can be real :poop:s, as can Austin traffic...they don't call it Slo-Pac Expwy. for nothing. :eek: Luckily, I live about an hour outside of town. I try not to venture anywhere near downtown, I-35, or SloPac anytime between 7-10AM and 4-7PM weekdays if I can possibly avoid it. And I don't know if you've discovered the joys of the Slo-Pac express lanes yet. They use demand pricing...off-peak hours it's like less than a buck to go from Parmer Ln. to Caesar Chavez or vice-versa. Rush hours it's close to $10.00!

My commute is just 10 minutes without traffic (I guess up to 20-25min with?)

It is mainly the Southwest Pkwy for 4.5 miles. I hate traffic too so I planned for that.

Send me a PM! Will you be at the next Austin meet?

IT IS HERE!!! Just drove it home, didn’t stall it. Did some weird clunking noises upon downshifting due to my inexperience lol.
I miss my Record Monza so much. Drove it top down with 50f weather no problem with heated air and seats.

Feels much more involved and entertaining than auto!

Also, stock pads feels spongey and I prefer more initial bite so will upgrade those later on.

LOVE THE RED SEATS.
