To each their own.

But the only thing I would personally consider paying a premium price for would be yet another chunk of real estate.

These ADM threads are annoying. Life is about choices, make one and move on

Shots fired. I've heard this quit a bit lately. The false dichotomy by those who vote against their own interests for tax free billionaires. The same people supported the destruction of democracy for 4 years recently. Then the Big Lie and January 6th happened. Anyone who supports the former Russia made monster in chief (ordered to kill Pence) after his lies and destruction are morally bankrupt.
Adam Smith was a Russian mobster ???

This time last year I got lucky and found my base car at msrp. Sold it and was looking for a 2021. Called a ton of dealers trying to locate a 21 base car with handleling pack and tech pack and lowest ADM I could find was 7500. Funny enough I found a track pack car an hour away that I was able to negotiate down to 5,000 over. It was posted online for 30 over. I'm picking it up tonight.

Just to be crystal clear here: I paid over for my GT500 (like most folks do) applying all the rules of supply and demand and based on the fact that I was told I would have to wait 1.5 years for an ordered unit and even then would pay over sticker.

I paid sticker for my Mach 1

Other than the shitty body lines (which we all know Ford is famous for and crappy paint) I am thoroughly happy with both decisions.

I am not a fan of others taking advantage of people for monetary gain (as in temporary Covid 19 commodity shortages) GREED is a 7 deadly sin and Karma will get these dealers for sure. If the market bears the price tag I understand it to some degree. However, inflating prices on a used Toyota Camry is another story.

I see the GT500 as a collector item that has intrinsic value that will appreciate over time, sort of like the Paintings people pay extraordinary amounts of money for (a $20 canvas and $5 bucks worth of oil based paint is now worth seven figures) I'm not saying the car will appreciate like that, I'm saying it's not a Toyota a dime a dozen rat trap car (no offense to Toyota owners) you can buy on every street corner it's a serial number car which is limited production soon to be out of production- and therefore is worth the price of admission as in paying an ADM. That's why I paid an ADM on the GT500.

And also because I WANTED IT - 🤣 🤣 🤣

(Mustang with an inferior chassis)

I believe his real motive was to insult us folks on here that actually have cars - probably a Dodge fanboy trying to pollute our forum. In his profile under cars listed it says "Several" - yeah ok ... 🤪

Go look at his posts most all of them are all slams and sarcastic remarks about Mustangs and Ford. Just another jealous Dodge fanboy who can't afford a real car - go away, shoo fly, go back to the Dodge forum where you came from... 🤣 🤣 🤣
The only fanboy i see in these threads are the people that overpaid for an inferior car, if you didn't research what you can buy for under 80K that will keep up, and with light modifications beat a 500 than who exactly is the fanboy?

I don't even bother with that either.... I like to hold out that people will maybe just once have something worth reading, so I hold out, haha.

That and it messes up the flow of a thread.

You just, without knowing it, said what everyone is saying here about ADM...

The price of any Ford vehicle IS clearly marked on the Window Sticker, it's the last line under the line items - MSRP. The ADM isn't, never was and will never be a FORD increase as it never was part of the CLEARLY MARKED MSRP directly from Ford. The ADM does not benefit Ford, it's an added amount by the Selling Dealer and only benefits the Selling Dealer.

Why anyone pays ADM "just because" is freaking beyond me.

One other note about ADM - if the vehicle ever ends up in a Buy Back situation and the Customer paid ADM, ADM is not recoverable by Ford RAV since it never was part of the original MSRP.

So why if the MSRP is clearly marked on a vehicle would you pay any value above it? The "WalMart scenario" is a perfect analogy and still applies to the discussion even though the product value at a WalMart was not $100k+. The point being is, if you wouldn't pay beyond retail price on the "sticker" of a product at ANY retail store - why would you pay above MSRP at any Dealership, regardless of Brand or vehicle type?

Think about it.
No. Walmart buys 10,000 widgets for $1 apiece then sells them for $1.50. During this transaction the widget maker and Walmart negotiate this price. Walmart turns around and sells at a price they decide alone, at a profit because they now own the widget and can set a price they feel the market will hold. If I sell you personal property for a set amount that satisfies me then you sell it the next day at an additional premium it’s because I, the original seller, misread the free market. By this logic everyone should be mad at you for correctly reading the market and making a profit. Dealers finance the cars from the manufacturers and therefore own the right to read the market and sell for what they feel the market will hold.

These ADM threads always bring out the best in people.
I agree. Just let the other folks do what they want. I don’t like ADM’s either but if Otherguy wants it bad enough, then more power to him. I won’t judge unless his kids can’t eat cause he spent it. Don’t like it? Don’t pay it.
