turbohat1.jpeg I have my Chili Red Sky. Very pleased with it, But I am going to trade it in for a turbo Sky. I have the hat, now I am waiting on the Turbo Sky. Anyone interested in buying my Sky can e-mail me. I will sell it for $50 more than the dealer is giving me on trade.

How much is the dealer giving you on trade?

$27,000 for my Sky on a trade for the Turbo. I have 600 miles on the Sky. The dealer wants me to stay under 1000miles.

Wow, you'll only have 400 miles for the next few months. That would be a challenge!

May I ask what the dealer is charging for the RL?

MSRP Just as he did on the Sky. I have a Suzuki 1400 Intruder plus my regular car. I am willing to give them the car now and wait for the Turbo to come in.

Don't you get a tax savings when trading a "used" car in on a new one where you live? For example, in Ohio You would save $1687.50 in sales tax if you received $27,000 for your trade. :driving:

Not in California you don't. In fact, if I bought a car out-of-state, like in Ohio with the trade (or in Alaska, where there is NO sales tax at all) then I would still have to pay the California Sales Tax when I went to register the car in the state.

I also have to pay Sales Tax on a used car that I buy from a private party, too. That occurs at the DMV when you transfer the title.

You only pay sales tax on the difference between the trade-in and the new car.

I had a toyota dealer offer me $1500 on my 91 MR2 Turbo that was in excellent condition back in Nov of 2000. I declined the offer and told him I would sell the car for $6,000.00 on AutoTrader.com. I actually sold the car for $6,300.00 (bought it 3 years prior for $6,000) the day after I posted it for the first time on the site. I came in the next day and told the salesman what I had sold it for and he could not believe it. I never trade cars in. It's too easy to sell used cars on your own and you make double what they give you or more.:thumbs:
