It seems that there are car sales everywhere..
Is it really GSS time for cars, or just gimmicks?
I recently had a chat with one rep, and the rep confided, that around this time, the companies, typically the ADs, will need to rouse up sales if they have not met the annual targets.
And if you get it now, from reps who have not met their annual targets, there is a bigger hunger, so they will be willing to share their commissions with you, and help you get a better price.
Having been to two sales recently, I can tell you from a first person point of view that the reps are truly keen to close a deal, and if you are really keen, get that cheque book ready, there are deals to be had.
For example, BMW has their 100 year sale, and one can score a BMW 116d for 123k plus a bunch of freebies.
The quantum of freebies that you get will depend on your bargaining skills and which rep is more hungry.
So is a senior rep better or a junior one? IMO, the latter. He / she has targets to met, and is more willing to forgo the commission in order to keep his / her job.
