    IIRC, they take a m6 and make them into those. Don't really remember any details.

    M6 and SL... use their own bodywork and interior trims. Adds 50-100k to the prices.

    I just saw one at the gym the other day, and noticed that it plate frames from the dealership I worked at this summer in Seattle (Barrier), so I called my buddy who works there, and he remembered the car.

    As far as the Mercedes based ones go, you first buy either an SL 55 or 65 (this one was a 65), and then an additional 200k gets you the Fisker car. A ridiculous interior and Carbon Fiber body comes back to you, along with the other obvious stuff.

    Get this though:

    The guy who bought it lived in Hunts Point (Wealthiest area in Washington and one of the wealthiest in America) in a $20 million house. For some reason, he wanted the 3rd car ever made, which had already been sold (only 150 are/have/will be made). So Fisker had to find the person who bought the 3rd one off the production line, and ask him if he would sell it, which he did.

    Now that is money.

    @DeeRock

    What did you do at Barrier Mercedes-Benz? I interviewed there around 2 weeks ago (I was in the Sales Department for Spokane Mercedes-Benz), but I think I'll be taking a job with Bellevue BMW...

    That's cool thats someones in sort of the same area!

    Nonsense.

    Honda civics dont' look nearly enough like AM's. if every car looked like an aston martin, i'd be happier :) especially if they had that sound too.

    I was gonna say they looked like rebranded AMs. Not gonna complain about that; I'm all about buying an upmarket car that's been rebadged to move downmarket and take the money from the common vulgar masses. That's why I drive a B5 Passat.

    I just worked as a Porter for the summer. Not a bad job, just kinda sucks doing grunt work, but I just wanted to give it a shot. I'm sure it's not as bad in the winter when it is less busy, and since it's raining all the time, you don't have to be as anal about keeping cars super clean.

    I liked it, the people there are pretty cool, especially since Connie is no longer the Manager at Mercedes. She always thought I was just there to dick around and that I only had the job because of my dad (He did all the marketing for Barrier the first 20 or so years.)

    If I were you, I would meet the finance managers at BMW and see if you like them. Jason and Troy are very nice guys and try really hard to hook up your sale, especially if you are cool with them. They bought me lunch literally EVERY day this summer.

    Anyway, let me know how it goes.

    Edit: Who did you interview with?

    Corey F.

    He's the New Vehicle Sales Manager. I was selling 5 cars a month at Spokane Mercedes. We sold 19 cars last month. Bellevue BMW sold 152 :eek3: ...We had 7-8 guys at Mercedes, this store only has 12...My car average should skyrocket.

    I think I'll be living in Renton for around 6 months, then hopefully upgrade to Bellvue with the GF after that.

    Anything I should look out for, or is it a pretty sweet store? I know they're autonation owned, we were Lithia:hsd:

    They didn't get the memo that the dealer-coke cliche was sooooo 80's? Park Place LTD, I saw their lot. FULL of Lotus Elise's, a few Maseratis, a Viper, couple of Vette's, etc..

    Do they do pretty well? i dead on how many cars they sell a month?

    They had an R34 GTR there this summer, they wanted $180,000 for it.

    I'm not sure how well they do. My friend's dad started the rental division of PP, but left come some of those guys are real dicks. I have had friends who have had problems with some of them when they go to look at cars.

    If you see a crazy colored Lambo Gallardo (or maybe a Murc.), that is Scooter's. He is one of the owners. That whole family is worth hundred's of millions of dollars, which they inherited from their grandmother (their grandfather owned Fisher Broadcasting).

    Drive around that lot and the back shops, you will see some $$$$$ crazy custom jobs.
