    It might even be 30K by now. I don't see any reason for that dealership to set a reasonable price right now. All of these super high ADM places are probably treating it as an auction. Set the price really high, take bids for a few weeks, and then sell to the highest bidder.

    If you set your ADM at 2.5K or 5K you miss out on the potential for someone to "bid/offer" higher. Worst case your best bid is at MSRP and you still make money. There is no recurring cost for having the car in transit meaning there is no urgency to pre-sell.

    That's completely ridiculous :eek:. $34,775 msrp + $25k ADM = $60k before Taxes and fees. I wonder how long will their unit sit and collect dust before it gets sold :rolleyes:.

    A completely redesigned Type R will come out and they will do the same and then another and then another they'll just have them all sitting lol

    Maybe not as long as you think. Depends on the actual number of cars available relative to demand. Each dealer only gets one except the larger ones get 5. I wouldn't rule anything out. 2018 may be different but 2017 will be hard to get a car.

    How about we just focus on the one right now- you know the one we've waited for over 10 years to get? And you're already predicting the future? Let's stay in reality if possible.

    Do you think that the larger dealerships will get more...because my dealer said that he is getting 3...and I thought that was bullshit. Is it possible he will get 3?

    The dealers I spoke to in rural oklahoma acted like there wasn't going to even be a base model when I told them for next year. They could care less about learning about their product or they lie to you. 10000 markup

    LOL :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    So far this is what I heard again at my work today from the sales director. We will do bidding on our first CTR. MSRP + $3k ADM is the starting bid. Anyone can "buy it now" instantly for $10k ADM. I will certainly bid, but only $3k ADM. I know I wont win, someone will walk into that front door with more $$$ and pay top ADM just to win. I'm looking for to buy as long as its below $5k ADM. Anyway, my search continues.... Good luck everyone :)

    CJ :cool:

    I mean I was referring to that specific dealer with 25k markup lol but in reality maybe when it gets close to 2018 model to come out they will sell it for MSRP or take maybe a lower offer from someone.

    Got a call yesterday from Ben Ledet sales manager of Honda of Slidell, Louisiana. He wanted me to contact him about the Type R. Trouble is I know he sold it two days ago. With 10k ADM added on. Truely stupid.
