30. Another point in the car negotiation game...
*Always* walk out at least once during the negotiations..

Go out, get in your car and drive away if they give you any bs at all (and they will).

They'll be much nicer when, and if, you come back.

Oh.. And the number one rule of car buying.. Never ever buy a brand new car.

You lose thousands the moment you sign the papers, you don't even have to drive it off the lot.
