Do I really see these savings? Or will I get a bill in the mail at some point in the future making up the difference in sales tax?
OP, like the others said, it's not where you buy but where you live. I paid local Alameda sales tax even though I bought from San Diego. Buy from Ryan, the money you save will be greater than any of the Bay Area dealerships. I drove up PCH and it was a great way to break the car in.
