airmike Posted August 2, 2016 Report Share Posted August 2, 2016 I've been looking for an ats-v for a while now and figured to buy a used one when the price got down. I test drove one in KC with the manual 6 sp, and Recaro seats and really liked that. I decided I had to have HUD, suede steering wheel/shifter and Recaro seats, though i hadn't yet tried the cadillac seats. Many other things I would like but not willing to pay for them. I originally thought black only, but the electric blue looked interesting on the web. I took my buddy to Joplin to see a blue one with caddy seats and figured to see how I liked them. I decided I would like blue or black at that point. Preferred the Recaro seats, though the others weren't bad. They tried to sell me it that day of course, but it wasn't happening. MSRP $66,000 and wanted 25 and my xlr and mustang gt. I said $15 and then we left, when they weren't interested in that. A black one in Wichita, that I offered 16 and my cars, MSRP 71 and he would only go to $18,800 so no go. I actually told that guy he should take that because I would be there the next day. Nope. Ok city had 3. One I liked MSRP $74. More things than I wanted to pay for on it, but all the things I wanted and the automatic, which I was ok with, since my wife would appreciate that and I still have the trans am to row gears in. I offered 17 for that one and they took it, so the next day (Saturday) my buddy drove one and I drove the other and got it! On the way I got to find out for sure that my xlr-v would out run an 11 mustang gt :)..A little more to follow. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
