The official hilarious markup thread. Dealers listing crazy markups

Post dealers with funny markups. This will be especially good as I believe nissan intends to penalize dealers that are doing this. Lets make a nice list for them to see.


I'll start:

Ferman Nissan of Tampa told me today, they are not taking orders, and when it comes in they are marking it up 20k. Not the most ridiculous, but still too damn much

hopefully emilGH's post in the gtr waiting list thread goes through. i would love to lease one because i plan on keeping it anyway. either way it should help stop the dealer markups. also the idea of nissan taking the pre-orders is good. can we contact nissan direct about this stuff?

They're not allowed to take orders yet, so that makes sense... but 20k over. They're just feeling things out. That's a good sign. If they launch with 20k in mark up, it won't last long.

Actually I can beat that. I took myself off the list because the dealer wanted 25k over. Now I have to find a new dealer to go to.

Dude! Never take yourself off the list. Wait as long as you can until they ask for money... Then flip it for 35k over! :-) Or the dealer will get frustrated and take your offer.

Local dealer in San Jose,CA quoted me $60K over MSRP. You won't find this car under $100K anytime soon.

I would have but apparently there were 2 people behind me that put down larger deposits to secure the fact they will pay the 25k over. I mean a markup is understandable but anything over 10k is kind of crazy.

Thats an opinion. As with any car, there will be ones selling at msrp. Maybe not right off, but eventually. Thats what this thread is for. So lets keep it for that, or ones very close to msrp. Also, there are already numerous ones promising well under 100k. 60k is utter insanity.

I'm not very educated with how dealers work and how they can justify marking up the GT-R so much. Is it really that costly for dealers obtain such car?

When I was in the market for the Subaru STI or the EVO back in 2004, I thought the $5K mark up I've seen was crazy... now it is way over that!
