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 .
SMH
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. :)

Yup it’s not worth the mark up at all.
But like I said if I find another R at msrp I’ll def buy it and if not an M2 or Supra it is . I will keep my 2017 for sure though!

I have gotten to watch a new Supra doing autocross events a couple of times and I can tell you that he is faster than stink! That automatic in the Supra shifts so fast that it is beyond amazing to see him run the courses. He runs around the track like a vacuum cleaner stuck on rails.

What do these dealers think?
that the apocalypse it’s coming and you have to buy an over priced civic ?
Lmao
For the regular civic I’m thinking they’re thinking about supply and demand. There’s no supply and there’s demand... they can’t exactly make sales quotas so they gotta make money another way. The Toyota dealership across the street from them has a lot that’s almost empty....Elk Grove Honda has a good bit of vehicles....also they’re selling a 2018 civic si for like $32k. 17k miles.
