haha! Good points. Dealer has given me until this weekend to take the trade offer. The offer is actually a hair better than KBB. I did ask about invoice and true car. Both shot down with swiftnessI think predicting stuff like this is almost as reliable as predicting the stock market. I'll offer a few thoughts anyway.
The G37 has undoubtedly taken a hit already with the imminent arrival of the Q50, so I think additional delays would be somewhat neutral... BASED ON THE INFO WE HAVE SO FAR.
What could swing it one way or the other is what comes out in the reviews. The G37 is a proven performer. The Q50 is not. If the reviews blast it out of the water, people might not be as inclined to pay the premium for the Q50. If the reviews are really good, the G37 might sink a little further relative to the Q.
Now are you ready for my sure-fire stock picks?
I thought about leasing but if I'm going to get out of my current car(2009).. I'm going to get completely out.Common sense would lead one to believe that the G37's value would be falling with an impending new replacement on the horizon.
However, as mentioned, the G will be around another year. As recent as last week, the G37's being sold at the Infiniti dealer sale have been bringing "all the money"...at least in our (southwest) region.
What year G do you have?
One thought I would suggest you consider would be to take advantage of the 24 month lease on the G37 and when the lease is up, swap into the Q50. By that time, selection will be ample and pricing should be more flexible.
Just tell them they shipped it without all the parts and you're waiting for the rest of them to come in. It's not far from the truth!Everyone I tell that my car is just sitting at the dealership but I can't buy it until August 5 is completely confused...they don't understand!
Geico isn't ready either. However the G37 should match. If anything the Q50 with the tech package should be cheaper to insure thanks to the accident avoidance packages.Some interesting bits of info but you might already know this.
If you're trading in you will pay tax on the full MSRP of the new car. Not the difference. Obvisouly a double dip here in CA. Curious if other states do the same.
Called my auto insurer AAA to get a quote. They don't have the Q50 in their system. Anyone else run into the same thing?
