Hi Guys.. Been here since 2006 since I used to own a 1991 Yellow with a bunch of goodies. I sold it for a different toy. Now, I’m trying to get back and was wondering if you can chime in on the quote I got.... I will be trading in my 2016 BMW i8 (with 9900 miles) and will have the opportunity to pick it up tomorrow once I give the thumbs up....

MSRP: $183,200
Acura financing discount: $20,000
Dealer discount: $18,200

Purchase Price: $145K
APR: 3.8%
Term: 72 Mos

2019 130R White
Red Leather / Black Alcantara interior
CF Interior
CF Wing
CF Roof
CF Engine Cover
Alcantara Headliner
Technology Package
Ceramic Brakes

Is this a good enough deal ?
It’s been awhile. Glad to be back soon !!!

I think in today's market that's pretty good. For comparison, in 2017, I got $30K rebate plus $13K dealer discount on a similarly equipped car, less the spoiler. The carbon fiber roof was expensive, but at the end of the day it really looks great on the car and I think it is worth it. Hopefully some of the dealer types will chime in.......
+1 on a good deal for a 2019.

My 2017 was $180.8k MSRP at $45.8k off — $30k incentive plus $15.8k discount.

I wonder what it’ll cost to get my 17 upgraded to 19 specs? Anyone know?

I have inquired about updating as well. From what I understand the big difference would be the updated/upgraded tires. The 2019 also has larger sway bars. I have those on my car and they came from Eibach. They are no listed on their web site but I imagine you can call them and ask about the price. The programing that was done shows up more on the track then anywhere else as I understand. Upgrading the tires and sway bars should make the car much more responsive. There were some bushings in the rear that changed but I have not seen those offered. I love my car and really enjoy driving it.

I think this is a very good deal. The cars with the carbon fiber options and carbon ceramic brakes tend to be discounted a bit more, and cars that are on dealer lots are priced better than the made-to-order ones. When I bought my 2019, I was told that I had to finance a minimum of $5K through AFS in order to get the $20K incentive. The actual rate that I received was lower than what was listed on my purchase contract. About two weeks after I purchased the car and drove it home, I received a letter in the mail from AFS that outlined the lower rate. What a pleasant surprise that was.

Anyway, I think the car you're looking at is a great deal, and congrats if you decide to get it!
thanks guys.. i took delivery of the car Monday night. it’s a blast !!!
