If this was an Ontario car, I wonder if they used one of those plate holders that don't require holes, since this one looks clean.

I think all the training cars had front plates; so maybe the salesman was telling the truth about this being an executive car?

You should be able to get some movement; there is always room for some negotiation; even if it is just $1,000 or so.

Just don't negotiate a great price, then lose all your hard work by buying all the 'protection products'. Most of them are pure profit; the only thing worth it is 3M film, but that can be done much cheaper elsewhere (or even yourself!).

Just got the call and 100% it is a "Advanced Driver Training" car. In service date was May 12, 2012.

Lots of other beauties out there without this history. Personally, I'd pass on the track star.

I guess my salesperson at Gallery was a bit more honest than the one selling this car. Sometimes they'll do anything for a sale, but advanced driver training cars should be disclosed for sure.

With any used car, it's caveat emptor. Whoever bought my old car probably didn't have a clue it was modded to hell; and would have likely not bought it if they knew how hard those snails were being pushed or some of the things I did to it on the road.

Even with new cars, some get bashed around at the port and during transport; they don't even have to disclose up to a certain amount of damage. When I worked at a certain dealership, you should have seen what was done to some 'new' cars.

Btw -- who is organizing the first meet this year

Just installed test pipes @ ECUPROGRAM. It is incredible. Spot on fitment. The power gain is crazy.

By the way, when are you guys changing your tires? I am so tempted to install my summer wheels in the next 2-3 weeks. The weather seems pretty nice.
