I received my 90 day notice email and am thinking about financing. I need to keep my payments as low as possible - due to present day economic concerns and budgeting in general.

Are the dealers offering any incentives, to go thru with the deal and I had heard that there may be tax break for people who are buying cars in 2009 as part of the economic stimulus push. Any truth to this. I really do want my Brabus Smart Car.

Would anyone know anything specific to California? Could you share please?

I don't know I about financing but what stimulus bill allows is a tax deduction for the first 1300.00 paid on sales taxes for the car. Which is totally sweet! Enjoy your car when you get it, they sure are fun!!!

In CT, cars that get OVER 40 MPG (city or hwy) are exempt from state sales tax. Thats a 6% savings off of the purchase price ($900 +/-).

You should be able to write off the sales tax for your purchase. That the latest items on tax breaks

I converted to the Brabus, also got my notice last week for 3/15 to 6/13-can't wait! Have been driving a Passion Coupe since October and really like it but I looked at a Brabus and now my 2008 is for sale. Sorry, don't have an answer on the stimulus incentive-would be nice. Maybe some nice governmental type official will read this and give us an answer.

sorry that's Brabus.

Thanks, hope I'll get more input. I made my reservation, too, over a year ago. I haven't called the local dealer yet to discuss it with them further. I ordered a Silver Barabus Cabriolet.

About the Brabus.... you and me both, bud. I reserved my Smart back in April or May of '08.... upgraded to the Brabus when the SECOND opportunity (for those who tried the first but weren't accepted) came around.... and just got the 90-day e-mail a few days ago. Can't wait. Got a call from my Smart Center that they had a Brabus available, but it was a black convertible. not sure if i want a convertible yet.... and i'd kinda prefer the silver.... but still not really decided. my reservation is for a silver coupe though.

As for the economic stimulus..... i'm not 100% sure on this, but i THINK i heard somewhere that if you buy a car in 2009, when you file your taxes for 2009, you could get up to like $400 back. again... i'm not 100% sure, so i'd wait for someone else to respond before getting one's hopes up.
