Ok, first the studs...... :-)
In my toolkit for the 89 100 Avant and the V8 for that
matter... there is a plastic dowel thingy with threads
that screws into the wheel to locate the hole and
help mount the wheel. Isn't that in your toolkit ?
This one is to Glen....
Glen I have done the "show up 15 minutes before they close
on the last day of the month" Trust me it works. I bought my
old 89 100 with 45k miles on the last day of Nov. at 9:30pm....
I'd been in already a week before and they went from 13k to 11,900
but I wanted it for 10k something.....
Well on the last day of Nov. at 9:30pm, they let it go for 10,900.-
I walked in and asked for the business manager. told him I would buy
the car right know for 10,900. He checked my credit and said deal.
Doesn't hurt to try :-)
P.S. If your paying cash, get a bank check for your price and hand it
to them. Its amazing what cash in hand will do to negotiations :-)
