duuuuude

it is business, they are a business, not your friend

they are not offering you more because they plan on making it back on the sale


in the end you could make them more money by offering less

PM'd you in case things don't work out with your other buyer. Interested for a trackday car for myself -- not a fix and flip.

Note that I have tried to negotiate the price down, but the insurance company states that the policies here in WA state preclude them from negotiating the price at this point. So $12,400 will have to stand.

never let anyone drive your Lotus without you in the passenger seat......so many Loti have been damaged/totaled this way....so awful...good luck (every person I have ever let drive my Exige or Elise has was never comfortable with the low seating position and could not het over how small they felt....)
