I think I've decided on a truck. Opinions welcome

    I had a magnetic grey TRD Off Road with the JBL system that I loved but I can't find one in the area that's like it. I found this one though:

    http://www.toyotaofplano.com/web/new/Toyota-Tacoma-2011-Plano-TX/720497/?condition_id=10425

    The more I look at it the more I like the white. I have the 16" black XD Hoss's in my garage that I never got to put on my last truck and I'm thinking they'll look good and I'll black out the emblems, bumper, grille, etc..

    I'm thinking about offering $26700 with a top limit of $27000 and seeing what happens.

    Thoughts, opinions?

    The white/black contrast always looks clean... :cool:

    If your top is 27k I would shoot a little lower. It can't hurt.

    And this parts production issue with the Japan disaster may limit supply and drive up cost a little.

    I would try to get it done soon.

    Good luck...

    White is a nice color if you are willing to do what it takes to keep it clean.

    I keep ending up with white. It actually looks clean in the winter, when it's not.

    Nothing wrong with White..Low maintenance exterior and cools faster in Summer!!

    $27K may be to lean considering they are not being restocked as quickly as they otherwise were. dealers can hold out for top dollar for the last few that may be available to the on the fence public who may start buying them up while they can.

    Sounds like a good price, but if you want to buy it for $27,000, I seriously would start out offering like 25,000.

    My rule of thumb when dealing is take the difference in the list price and what your top dollar is, and make your first offer the same amount lower than your top dollar. Has treated me well this far in life.

    So if list is $29,000 (I'm sure it's more than that) and you want to buy it for $27,000, your first offer should be $25,000 and try to meet in the middle or less.
