Mike and James, why so cynical about dealer transactions? I've bought and sold 50+ cars over the years and only twice was there an issue with a car I bought from dealers. Both were hidden accident damage and both times I didn't have a PPI done b/f pulling the trigger. Always get a PPI!!!

In this case, I agree with what James said in a post above; if you're looking for a GTS then buy a GTS and if you're looking for a great 928 buy Ashfin's!

If you settle on a GTS, Willhoit always has a nice selection and he has a great reputation for both b/f and after the sale!

Dealers to me are like fishing is to fish markets, I'd rather find a car in the wild, plus typical used car dealers are sleaze, flippers with a store front. Willhoit seems to offer very nice cars, with up to date service etc., only down side is cost is 10% to 30% more than private party.

Son of a family friend was a used car salesman, a lifer, and we had a good conversation once. It left me with a good understanding what the job is, and what doing it well means.

The "best" used car salesman is the one who makes the most gross profit..........they keep their job, get awards, and get promoted. Typically they know little or nothing about the actual car and frankly could care less. It is just what they have available to sell and they need to sell.
