The ZL1 Chronicles: They’re Back Again With Another Offer

Just when I thought I was over…they find a way to pull me back in.

So here I am, back at my day job when all of a sudden I receive a phone call. This call comes from Bob Steele Chevrolet. Yes, the same dealership that wanted to fuck me when it came to buying the 2012 Camaro ZL1. It’s been almost three months since the disaster of eBay Chevrolet that took place in the dealership. Now they’re back with a new offer. Part of me wanted to tell them to go fuck themselves, but after listening to what they had to say I then became slightly intrigued.

Employee Pricing!

Is this just another useless ploy, a last ditch desperate attempt to get me to buy, or were they sorry for the crap they caused a while back and really wanted me to have the car? I questioned the motives of the dealership, but my interest was there. Just maybe a sale is a possibility. More of a long shot of course especially considering the work that I’ve already put into the car. Why am I considering the offer? Because it’s a ZL1 of course! The car was in stock and ready to move. Then I saw the car on their website something hit me. Is this the exact same car from the last time I was there? Did they not sell it yet? Maybe I need to investigate this a little further.

While the below sticker offer is quite enticing I still have a couple of other areas where the numbers are a bit off. Trade in value. Last time the trade in allowance given to my 2011 Camaro SS was $24,400. I wasn’t going for the lowball treatment. I want more and I know they’re more flexible on that. The other issue is my upgrades. I added a supercharger, wheels, and exhaust all factory installed and warrantied by the dealership. I have a lot of money invested there and I’d like to see something back on that. These two areas are make it or break it for me.

Just think if they didn’t pull their greedy bullshit price gouging three months ago I would have already had the car at the price I wanted, and all the upgrades would’ve never been necessary. Now I have a lot to think about before Friday’s meeting. To buy or not to buy? This is the dilemma. Currently my answer stands at “No!” However, all it takes is just a little nudge and everything can change.

    It would take a hell of an offer to convince me to buy anything from them after the crap they pulled.
