    It has come to my attention that when I was trying to buy a Redline up to 2015 but I expect this is also happening to any Redline to the latest 2017 Model that when you advertise them for sale anywhere and you have a good one with Low k's or other that appeals the Car Dealers they will hound you.
    I had the unfortunate to meet two people that live 200k apart but they said the same story.
    One case a guy that had a 2015 Redline for sale with only 8500 ks on the clock and when his wife said she was the part owner of the car and the dealer heard this at their doorsteps the dealer knowing this waited until her husband went to work (looks like afternoon shift and the dealers knew he was just about to go to work) and the dealer came back to put pressure on her to sell the car at his price.
    The Dealer Said to her something like this that "Holden Redline with other Holden V8's will lose they value very soon because Holden is Shutting down and you will be stuck with a car that nobody wants".

    Three weeks after this happened I spoke to the couple at their place and they told me this and I was shocked how a lowlife scumbag can do this to any person. They also said to me over the Phone later that the is Redline is not for sale anymore. Sad Because I said to them Give me a price that you are both comfortable with and I will buy it..

    Well ... you have to be a fool to sell it for less than what it's worth...
    I would be more than happy to be hounded by a dealer for my car...
    A few months ago, Subaru offered me less than 30k trade in for my 2016 SS Black.
    Politely told them to **** off...

    car dealers are the original flippers, they buy low and sell high all the time. if you are dumb enough to panic sell that's your issue.
