If you must buy in California go with a board dealer. They have shown they give good discounts.
you pay taxes on the car where ever you register the car. The only way you would have to pay CA taxes is if you drove the car from the dealership, thats why most of our WA and Oregon customers ship the cars. If you lived in a state that the taxes are higher then CA and you drove it in CA and then registered it in the higher tax state you would have to pay the CA tax and then the difference when you registered it in the higher taxed state.
