Back in a 453......

well due to dealers being a little more desperate lately, snagged another 453 and this time it's a manual transmission (no sport package as the road noise was too much with the 16's)


$17,000 Retail vehicle
$9500 +TTT out the door for untitled brand new 2016 vehicle

they have one pure that would come out to like $8800, and they have primes that come out to like 10,5k, they have cabrio's that come to 15k... if anyone interested in a smart i can refer you to the dealer.

i got this guy for city commute:

Very nice - they didn't have any new electrics laying around did they?

Wow. I feel like I should rush out and get a "spare" while I can!

I swear, these cars are as infectious as a virus or something. I can't wait to see the lowest deal someone will inevitably get on a new 2016/2017.

Makes me wish i'd have waited another year and a half to get my 453. damn. Amazing how much a simple "Yea, we're not importing these anymore" can drive the price down. You'd kinda think it'd have the opposite effect at first... but oh well.

My bad... but please be more honest with your posts so everybody on the forum is not misled by them. Your deal is a "corporate sale" which has its own sales/leasing programs that are unique to corporate owners.

You still got a great deal though nevertheless.

not a corporate sale, i purchased as individual and anyone here can do the same.. the incentives are from smart and dealer and thats the price... i do have several but dont have corporate rate.. PENFED and USAA members would have lower price as both offer $3750 incentive cash too... that doesn't take any money out of dealers pocket, but arrangement w/ MB.
