Hello guys, my name is David. I'm so glad that I found this forum 2 months ago after I fall in love with Mazda3. I kept visiting this site at least twice a week and received lots of useful info and tips about Mazda3. Good work!!! and Thanks!!

I just ordered a 5 speed M3 with everything loaded (1AB, 1MC, 1XT, NV1, autodim mirror, tint window, and alarm) except leather. I was trying to negotiate with price like what you guys said in the forum but without success. They won't do anything like $300~$500 above invoice for me. I ended up with the price they give to me, $21,243 ($700 above invoice) + tax $1,842.11 + license $112.5 - grad rebate $500 - trade-in $1000 (93' Sentra XE 5 speed) = $21,697.61 with $10,000 down. Monthly payment is $215.24

The salesperson is pretty nice with me which let me test drive two M3s (one with 5speed and one with nav. but AT) by myself and answer all my questions without unpleasant. However, the manager started showing unpleasant after I try to tell him that I would like to pay only $300~$500 above invoice. :cry: It was even worse after I told him that every dealer has about 5% hold back on invoice. :x (he said that is not true!!)

Finally, I agreed with their price due to the salesperson allow me to drive their loan car until my M3 delivered which is about a month. But I still thinking I'd a bad experience on buying the 3. :cry:

Anyway, I really like 3's styling, power, quietness, and interior features which both Civic and Corolla cannot compete with. :p

WOAH! huge taxes! in South Carolina our taxes have a limit of $300. Never knew just how much that saved us.

My dealers wouldn't move on the price here either, but instead they offered me well above what my car is worth on a trade-in.

they did however offer to let me drive one of their 3's on the lot untill my order came in, it could always be worth asking! :cool:

What plates do you mean? the rear bumper step plates or the licence plates? I got the rear bumper step plates from my dealer. it is one of the accessories for Mazda3 Hatchback. and I got my licence plates from ebay.
