Just lucky I guess. I was working on a price with an out of town dealership and phoned a local dealership to see if they could compete, and they did. I initially dealt directly with a sales manager so I don't know if that helped my price or not.

Sticker price = $37085 (not incl. delivery or AC tax)
Invoice price = $33650
Purchase price = $31295

So I guess it's more like 7% not 10%. They also gave me more for my trade than they probably should have. The sales manager told me he wasn't making any money off me other than bonuses for hitting monthly sales numbers, but I doubt that is true.

Keep in mind I am in Canada so these are $CDN prices.

Automatic, 3.73 gears and LSD are the options that matter.

I got it for ~10% below invoice which I think was a fantastic deal. I also bought lifetime oil changes for $400 which seemed like a pretty good deal too.

My first mod will be to change out the wheels and rubber. I already picked up a set of duratrac 285/75R16. I just need to find somewhere local to buy the wheels which I think will be ATX AX398s. The next few things on the list will be an AEV procal to deactivate the TPMS and change the tire size, a lock box for under the drivers seat and probably a leveling kit of some sort. I like the idea of the sprint booster but the price seems ridiculous for what it does. I'll probably just wait until they crack the ECM. I already have a Superchips programmer so I'm hoping they just have an update for that eventually.

Would using the beads for balancing make sense with a tire like this? Most of what I read says they work great but I don't have any real life experience with them so I'm a little hesitant. Do they make a lot of noise when you come to a stop?

Any other simple suggestions (meaning inexpensive or free) as to what I can do to it?
