    JLR website pricing

    Hi guys, Iím after a bit of advice on a freshly signed contract for an SE P400. I found the car a few days ago on the JLR website, find & price link. My local dealer had the vehicle at a rather steepish $146,990 drive away. I test drove it Friday and today did my best to get some sort of discount that was kindly refused. Late today I signed and returned the signed contract via email at their listed price. Less than two hours later, with the vehicle still on the Land Rover website their drive away price was reduced, to around 12k less. Other vehicles also listed seemed to have price reductions as well. Just my luck! I rang the sales guy and was told that the dealership used Carsales for their vehicles and that the ad was now pulled. He will talk to his boss in the morning about the price difference but didnít suggest I would get the vehicle at the new advertised price. I guess I have the cooling off period as back up. What do you suggest I do?

    The very fact that they understand you would be prepared to walk will often result in you getting what you are after.

    Many years ago I went to buy a brand new car that needed a 2 month delivery - a trade in price was agreed that would apply when the new are was delivered.

    I got the call that the new car had arrived and was registered in my name with my personalised plates. When I arrived to pick it up, they then advised my trade was now 15% less than agreed due to the wait - after a bit of argy bargy I said OK I will keep my old car and they can keep the new one - but but but its already registered in your name they cried - I got my original trade in price.

    If your dealer is fair dinkum they will understand and give you the vehicle at the new price.

    Its less that 10% of the price - it is well within their margins.

    Gary is on the money!

    make sure you print the adds and keep them as proof. be clear when the cooling off period ends and be prepared to cancel the deal if they don't come to the party. See if other dealers are prepared to earn you business and use that as a bargaining chip as well.

    Nice car! Good luck!
    Cheers,

    In WA there is no cooling off period for car sales, is that just a WA thing?

    You might be surprised how little margin there is for the dealer in new cars -A reduction this big would have to involve the manufacturer too.

    I have no sympathy for them.

    Isn't it a real pain in the arse to buy a car.....bought on by the dealer.

    I decided to walk. After configuration to build to the specs of something that suits me it still comes in heaps lower than purchasing off the floor. I guess dealers are putting premium prices on for the convenience of a quick sale. Mind you, my new price will creep up once I spec some options that are dealer supplied on top of factory options.
