    Wait for a 2018, get a 'demo' registered after July 2018 to get the 5-year warranty. Wait for the xmas-NYE break and have 'cash' ready to roll. Set your price, make the offer to every dealer that has one (let them know you're talking to other dealers) and you should get the deal you're looking for...

    I got a 2018 VXR for less than NZ$50k back in June. The power is in your hands, make them an offer and if they refuse, head down the road, if there are as many of them floating around as you say the dealers will be getting desperate to unload them.

    There is a silver VXR on car sales for 39k in Vic or 41k drive away. This has 12k on the clock and has the 5 year warranty . You could offer 36k and see what they say. Even at 39k it's a good deal for a low Km VXR and metallic paint.

    I recently got a 2018 VXR for $43500 drive away. I tried negotiating with several dealers to get the price lower but they would not budge - the one I got has 5000k on the dial. The margin is low when you get to this price. Definitely worth it even at this price - if they lower the VXR to around $40K then it will leave the other variants in serious trouble as they just won't sell.

    Posters in other forums saying the v6 models will no longer be sold once existing stock gone. Not a fact just posts.
    For me I m waiting till 2020 to buy an RS 4 cyl at 18k.

    We must remember that car yards pay rates and other council fees on the land their cars sit on. They also pay electricity, wages and have funds tied up in stock. Accountants take these costs and apportion them to each of their cars. So it costs the dealer each and every day a vehicle is on their lot or out the back.

    The longer a car sits, the more the car owes the dealer. But the irony is that it’s worth less to the buyers (as it’s getting older). That’s why they have EOFY and EOY sales, to get rid of this old depreciating stock. This is especially so for the run of the mill older overstocked models.

    Add some consumer fear about whether a vehicle is going to be orphaned soon and that makes them look like leper’s at the pool. Come next year and you’d be able to name your price for an Opeldore.

    As an example, the 2016 Insignia VXR had a circa $55k Drive away price but the last of them (they weren’t advertised well and didn’t sell well) we’re sold in late 2017 for $28 DA... at that price a great buy if you liked the car. Oddly second hand prices are around that same level (which turned out great for those that waited).

    Yes I think the VXR will plateau at just under 30k. I thinj the Holden dealers don't want to hold on to a loss making car.

    It’s insane the price difference between a demo with 13 thousand k on the clock , and one with 3000 k...$10k difference , same 2018
    Build aswell. Trying to get it down from $51k to very low 40s, salesman blatantly refusing

    Great deal. I hope people notice the build date you mention as there has been chat on here saying there haven't been any 2019 built cars this year.

    There is a white one on car sales with just 8km on the clock never registered so brand new. 47.3 k plus on roads so I think around 44k would be a good offer and work upwards. This is a June 2019 compliance

    Been watching the movement on carsales everyday for vxrs. Noticing most that were adevertised low 40 thousand drive away , have shot back up to high 40s early 50s.. must be selling a lot of units now perhaps since pricing has come right back ?

    Or else the 2018 backlog of cars might be near cleared. Most of the cars corn from the Holden auctions and we will see more of the 2019 models soon. I think the prices will drop again once the Holden auctions start up again early next year. All based on supply and demand the prices. Also the lead up to Xmas is a more popular time to buy a car as some people hold off till their Xmas break to get one.

    48k driveaway for a new vxr is great.
