Actually, one of the first CTR owners on the Civicx forum bought a CW 2017 in the spring of 2017 from Coggin Honda Jacksonville, $10k ADM he paid (he said so in his post). That is par for the course at any Coggin dealer.
I remember that. I wonder if they still own it.

What a shame .
I, like a Dodo paid 7k markup on my 2017 CW when it first came out. At the time I was ok with it because it was the first year and I wanted the car not needed it .
I look back and I’m like, what a silly move on my part.
Next year on my 2018 I was like I’m
Not paying mark up for it, guess what, silly me paid 3k over . I look at it now and I’m like yup that’s 10k down the drain.
I was gonna buy another R but I’m like, with these dealer markups nope, they’re not getting me again .
I was gonna get a LE but the dealer didn’t budge on their 5k markup , now I’m like , it was a steal I guess considering dealers want 70k and more.
Now I’m done with Honda , gonna get either a (BMW)Supra lol or a M2 comp since the R’s are heavily marked up .

Went looking for a CTR a couple weeks ago.
Add John Eagle Honda and Honda Cars of Katy (both Houston) to the list.
John Eagle sold an LE for 76K.
Honda Cars of Katy sold a BB for 50K.
Katy had a new BB coming in and told me 52K. Valued my 2019 Sport Sedan with 30k miles at 18K (very nice because that's only 2k less than what I paid OTD), after some negotiating I was able to bring the OTD price (including value of trade in) to 30K (not very nice). Meaning my car was finally worth 8K and they still added a hefty markup.

It wasn't a steal, it's money down the toilet. You made the right call this third time.....not so much the previous two. Not to pick on you but all that wasted markup, only 2-3 years later, two Rs later, and you're already looking to move on to a BMW lol.

I can afford to take some of these ADM hits I read about on here yet no way in hell would I give some dealer a dollar over what I know others can get the car for. No one just gives me money, I won't return the favor with my hard earned cash.

Guys......don't fall for hype and give in to car fever. Wait it out and, new or used, you'll find something for a fair price. Hell, I spoke to some kid at a car show this past weekend who got his used for a steal pre-covid and is already looking for the next cool thing to replace it with......its how some people are wired. Many examples like that will pop up used when car prices cool down.

Yup . No more adm , I’m just saying, considering the dealers are asking 70k now , 25k more than what they asked me for it when I went to try to get one.
Don’t take me wrong, if I find another R at msrp lll buy it .
But as it stands I’ll buy an M2 comp before I over pay for an R again.

I have a buddy who own 2 R (17, 19) and trade the 19 for the 20 M2c and then he traded the M2c after 7 months back to a 21 BB

I honestly don't even feel like they're worth the markup either. I heard there's a lot of people trading in their R's for a Supra with no regrets. Its great car just wish Toyota would give a manual so I'll hold out until they do. Saw one the other day on the road and it truly is a beautiful car and with a awesome motor. Maybe I'll give into the automatic one day since everybody raves about it that has one.

I guess like anything - it depends. If you need a 4 door with a hatch; kinda like a one car to do it all - the CTR is a tough car to beat. Offers gobs of. performance and after market support as well as being practical to give good gas mileage and to be able to take your family.

But I agree - if you don't track the CTR and you don't need 4 doors - the Supra is hard to beat - the aftermarket support is solid and the looks are really nice. And the power that those cars can put down with simple bolt-ons and a tune - wow. Personally I would wait to see what the new Z brings out - it will have a manual and a twin turbo setup sooo....there might be more options out there if you are willing to wait. :)
