I reached out about a month or 2 ago to a dealer about 45m-1h away, asking about the Z that I saw was inbound for them. They said they already had a buyer lined up, but put me down on their list. Well last night, I got a call that their buyer had fallen thru and the car was going to open sale, 'first come first buy' - Interestingly I was the only one that had answered from the salesman I was talking with, but this was at 6pm on a Thursday so maybe I shouldn't be as surprised. The salesman I was working with was actually already off for the day, but came back in to meet me and make the sale.

Long story short (TL;DR) - I am now the proud owner of a Black Diamond metallic performance! So far: Brilliant car, what a step up from my WRX! Pics below!

Before anyone asks: $5k market adjustment. Oh well.

Pics!

Look at those guys in the backgroundā€¦.they look super sad to see it go šŸ¤£
Congrats on the car it looks beautifulā€¦hope you enjoy it, but I agree. Leave the katana as is
The katana stays! No way Iā€™m changing that!

the dealer staff were sad - they had to keep asking if they could interrupt to take photos once the plastic was off (they hadnā€™t removed any plastic at the previous buyers request, so when I was working on the paperwork they got to take all the plastic off and finally see the inside!)

Wonder if the $5K or less ADM will become the norm soon, as more first-line buyers back out? Probably not soon in the CA hot market, maybe elsewhere. Predicting will happen before summer.
