well i finaly bit the bullet and put a grand down on an 06 R. i should be getting it around the middle to the end of this month. i have a few things i want to ask of you all because i know everyone on this board knows more about these cars than most salespeople at the dealerships, i knew more about the R than the "new" salesman that was helping me today. anyway, i settled for an auto, even though i wanted to try the manual, they didnt have any on hand and the only ones on the lot was a 04 auto and an 06 auto in the showroom. i test drove the 04 and liked it a lot, lot more power in the auto than what i imagined. i heard on here that the 06 doesnt suffer as much in terms of power like the 04's did with the 5 speed auto. i just want someone to confirm me on this one. another reason i went for the auto was because i will be using the R all the time and i live in the city so changing gears all the time may not be for me although ive never driven a manual so i dunno for sure. the last reason i went with the auto was because i think they gave me a good deal on the car as well, heres the list and the price of the car:<p>06 R<br>titanium grey paint with nordkap interior<br>6 speed auto<br>IAQS<br>sun roof and upgraded radio package<br>rainsensor and heated seat package<br>18" wheels<p>price for all that including taxes is 40 thousand and something (forgot the hundreds part)<p>so i was wondering if this is a good deal for that. they will have to deliver the car to my location in NC from NY, which is included in the price also.<p>i also made it clear to them i want the car with the lowest milage on it as possible. he said 10-15 miles is typical but i find it hard to believe that much miles needs to be put on the car but i want to confrim this with you guys also. im not going to accept a car with 30+ miles on it no way. i was going to order the car from the factory but they acted like they wouldnt cut me as big of a deal as they are with this one. i actualy wanted the sport body kit and 17" wheels instead and no sunroof but finding one with the options i wanted wasnt coming up today. they said it wasnt possible to order the car without a sunroof but with the upgraded radio.<p>the last thing i want your guys thoughts on is about my trade in. i was going to trade in my 01 s80 t6 and they are only offering me 10,300 for it. its been in a front end collision before so that knocked off 3 grand or so. i feel the car is worth more than this because its in excellent condition so i wanted to check and see on here whether that sounds like a ripoff or not to anyone whos done a tradein.<p>well thats about it i guess. ive read up on the car on here pretty well and ive browsed through the R forums off and on since the car was released since ive been dieing to get one and now the moment is upon me so i just want the car to be as perfect as possible. <p>im aware of the plate underneath the car where the exhast is and that will be the first thing i check when i get the car. i looked under the one they had in the showroom, an 06 R, and it was hanging down some below the exhast just like the pictures ive seen on here.<p>thanks very much for the help guys.
