Fair enough, I guess my point with ignoring them is to not respond to the dealership. Of course, if a buyer wants to contact any number of outlets to report this behavior that is good.
This wasn’t my customer. It was just a reader to who emailed me.
Came here to comment something like this...well done.

Good question, I don’t think Subaru’s CPO program is that great. They only extend the powertrain warranty for their CPO program and they charge extra if you want to extend the bumper-to-bumper. Given that Subaru’s are pretty reliable to begin with, I wouldn’t recommend paying a significant premium for a CPO model.…
Impreza’s have a very slim margin for markup, so you may have done ok.
Costco is fine, the deals are good, but you may be able to do better on your own. They certainly are not exclusive. Keep in mind Costco charges the dealer for that lead, the dealer then has to build that kick back to Costco into the price of the car they sell you.
I would say that is pretty good, the margin between invoice and MSRP on a BRZ is pretty narrow, so you got that below cost.
Depending on the metro area if you got in the range of 3-4k off or better I say you did pretty well.
I’ve been able to do WRXs and STis near or sometimes below invoice.
An R wagon would have been so sweet.
First thing I thought of when I saw the Tweet.
It’s all good, man. Another commenter said the S8 is so stealthy you missed it as a recommendation. :)
LOL Jersey Jokes
Dammit I keep forgetting about these....they are so fast and really great values.
I was torn between this and the Audi and the Porsche is probably the nicer car, but I just like the stealthiness of the S8.
It’s ok if you just read all the other recommendations and not mine. I thought we were cool but I guess not.
