Do dealers still receive hold-backs and incentives from the manufacturers?
With that said, and I'm not saying that this is the best for the dealership's money making interests, but I have always been told that you want to shoot for about $300 above invoice pricing. This gets you a good price and the dealer is still making with the hold-backs and incentives.

Do I get a better/worse deal if I pay cash or finance? I notice a lot of sales people will ask "how are you going to pay for this?" right up front. It's suspect. There's got to be a reason here. Thanks!
How much do you typically make in a year?
Is there any talk in your professional circles about self-driving cars? Do you think you'll find yourself selling them someday? If I were looking to buy one but kinda on the fence, how would you pitch it to me?
It is actually mid range vehicles.
Yes self driving cars are definitely going to become more widely available. I’m not sure if I will still be selling cars by then though as it’s not what I want to do forever. As far pitching it to you I would say the majority of selling factors on the self driving vehicles will be 2 things.
1. Safety, think about if you are tired or on a long road trip. The vehicle will make sure you arrive where you need to go and will correct the vehicle if you go over the centre line or start to drift to the side of the road. Also when the vehicle infront of you needs to stop suddenly the computer in the vehicle will be able to react much more quickly then our brain which could save you from an accident.
2. Convenience and comfort, while your vehicle drives you to your destination you can relax and sit back. Never have to worry about parallel parking in a tight spot, or worry about taking a wrong turn. I’m sure self driving vehicles will be able to pick the best routes based on gps traffic updates as well to avoid delays. Overall this will make for a stress free drive.
