I bought an orphan and paid exactly what was on the sticker ,the dealer didn't add a single thing,I bought 1 year additional warranty for 395.00 ,I bought a passion coupe with comfort package metalic silver paint,silver tridion and upgraded sterio , I paid around 15,800 plus delivery
Wow, that is great. The dealer I found adds a very special window tinting (although it is really just a film) and lojack to every orphan.
Lowjack is $595. The window tinting is: %597. Yikes!
Where did you get yours?
Wow, I guess I got a deal by paying sticker-they wouldn't haggle!. Got just what I ordered, a Pure w/ panoramic option & airconditioning - that's it. I ordered (and purchased) a Pure, but the logo on the side of my smart says "passion." Didn't have any wierd upgrades. Cost was 13,965, I think that included delivery.
I just bought an orphan. I paid the same price as the one I ordered but got a ton of extras and saved the $400.00 fee they are adding starting January. I think I saved about $2,000.00 by getting the orphan. My dealer seems to be honest. However, I did hear that many dealers do add options to up the price.
My delivery was made with no surprises. I paid exactly what I expected to pay, including all the taxes, fees, and the dealer's "doc fees". There were no other hidden charges in my sale, and I was pleased with the experience.
