Need help buying a new Evo X

I have been saving for my 1st Evo and had a couple of questions,
1- What is the average price a 2012 goes for after haggling. What did you guys pay for with taxes and everything.
2- Would it be smarter to get a 2011 or just 2012?
3- what are good ways to haggle

thanks!

Buy one from the *******s at South Coast Mitsubishi, have it shipped to you.

Don't fuck around, tell them you want the cheapest possible for whatever options you want, they'll sell dirt cheap. They're a volume dealer, they sell for pennies profit to reap the rewards from Mitsubishi for selling the most Mitsubishis in the U.S.

Don't go there to pick it up, just have it shipped... unless you're in LA or SoCal anyways?

That's my advice. There's no haggling, just rock bottom prices.

If you can get a local dealer to match their pricing (doubtful) then obviously go that route, otherwise just ship the car from LA.

If you're in a neighboring state, don't even think about going to pick it up, you'll leave severely disappointed. Take it from me. They're a bunch of douches, but they sell cars at the lowest possible price.

I got mine from South Coast. Had it shipped by Horseless Carriage. They are one of the best in the world, still saved a bunch of cash.

If you drive it home. You pay Cali taxes. It more then jersey and your car would not like a 3000 mile brake-in. Not a good idea for an Evo X.

i figured as long as I mix it up, keep the engine guessing with different gears and rpms and such it would be alright. certainly make for an interesting drive at the very least
