Agreed, they're barely rolling onto dealer's lots. People are pretty much paying sticker at this point unless they have VPP which i believe is being honored, depending on the dealership.

Check again. May was pretty bad for Infiniti - local dealer said 20% drop in sales. I went early in the month last week and didn't expect to walk out with a deal but I think they were trying to get in early numbers.

I was able to get invoice plus picking up 5 or 6 remaining lease payments (2 by Infiniti pull ahead and the rest by the dealer - not rolling into my lease) and I'm pretty sure someone else here got about invoice as well. Seems like some dealers are working with folks right now.

It's worth a shot at least.

.
Anyone know if the 2016 Red Sports have an updated rear sway bar from the 2014-2015 Sport models? Or, does the Stillen rear still provide an upgrade in handling on the new RS?
.
Also, April & May were bloodbaths for all vehicle sales, but in particular passenger cars (vs light truck/SUV) so, I'm certain they are reacting by doing whatever they can to rebound in June & July. Hope so for everyone's sake!

Lovin my RS400 already. About 24.7mpg fast highway driving during break in. Happy with 400hp and better mileage than my old gasser!

Congrats.

Love the graphite, torn between that and the platinum. What made you decide on the color?
.
The mileage is pretty impressive, did you get an AWD?

Got the AWD. Love graphite. I always say it never looks dirty but it looks great when it's clean. I feel it also shows off the lines of the car better than the platinum but that's just personal opinion.

I still have to drive it around my suburban roads to really get a feel for the mpg for my daily driving but so far I'm happy with the highway mileage. Should get even better once it's broken in.
