I’m working with a dealer close to me, they let me know they will give me Texas tax waiver on the model they have coming in 2 weeks or if I did want to do custom build. I have been advised by another user here to ask for % (what % do yall think i should ask for) off they are willing to offer on the model before going to the dealer to do the custom build and put down a deposit.
what else do yall recommend I ask for? I’m guessing the money factor might be one.
I hate paying taxes and love when I get the holy grail:
Big discount, rebates, and targeted incentives
Great money factor and residuals
Next to nothing in state taxes
But to a dealer it’s all just money. Tons of Texas dealers are happy to say, “Yea, we can get you tax credits.” And they will find those credits, but they’ll also discount the car less or charge you more in fees. And they really have no incentive to give you the “holy grail” on a new car they don’t have in stock.
Long story short, going out of state with someone like @derekoh1991 might not be a bad play even if he can’t do tax credits. FWIW I’m having 0 luck on getting Texas dealers to play ball on the EQE sedan, even when it’s been sitting on their lot for 5 months and missing microchips.
