    Car dealer "VIP" events

    I am looking to pull the trigger on some new wheels and have registered interest with a few Germanic dealerships.

    As such I have had my exclusive invites to a few VIP type events (oh I feel so special... hmm)

    Question to anyone in the know. Is there scope to actually get a good deal above and beyond what I could normally haggle face to face with a dealer? Or are the just blowing smoke up my bum to lure me in?
    In the bag

    Variations on the below

    Callaway X2 Hot 8.5 Degree -Aldila ATX Tour Green X-Flex
    Callaway X2 Hot 18 Degree hybrid - Aldila ATX Tour Green Stiff
    Titlist T-MB 3 Iron - Stiff C Taper
    4-PW Srixon 545/745 Combo 4-PW - Stiff KBS Tour
    Callaway 50,56 and 60 Mackdaddy MD3 Wedges
    Putter – And the winner is.... - RAA Classic centre shaft wand - Best thing since sliced bread

    Having bought many cars over the years and having been invited to so called VIP events and promo's I would say that, whilst often pleasant, such events are rarely beneficial.

    You should get a decent deal. Often they'll double the trade in offer, or knock a few grand off if you take a colour and configuration that have ordered or in stock. In my limited experience it's worth it but don't expect anything mind blowing.

    Cheers.

    I know the car I want and have already got a fairly good deal.

    What I wanted to do was spec it up and see if they would chuck in extra toys or deals on maintinence packages etc

    Don't think peasant smells are ever aromatic
    Forever trying.

    Such events are normally packed so you don't get the time you need

    As much as it pains me to say, it's about building a relationship with a sales guy that you actually like - having just been lucky enough bough to buy two nearly new bmws it was worth the effort

    We ended up with two fantastic deals (both month end) with great service packs etc that took us a couple of months to progress through etc - we sat and waited for such a cracking deal to appear

    Also choose a dealer that is part of a national chain or multi dealer sited as it gives an outreach to a huge number of vehicles
