Looking for a 2012 SLS AMG - Where to find and how to Finance
Wanted to ask for some input from those who have made the SLS purchase decision. I am looking for a 2011 or 2012 Coupe with 20,0000 miles or less for about $130-140K.
Where did you find your SLS? So far I have looked in all the places one would for a used car, Autotrader, Cars.com and AutoTempest etc. However I have not found the car for me. Do you know where else I could look?
Second, outside of just writing a check (I am working on being able to do this) how did you finance your purchase? I am finding that regular banks are not interested in participating in the financing of exotic cars or older cars or ones that are more than a set amount of value (not a loan amount just a price cap). The ones that I have very often want a lease arrangement (Premier Financial Services), and I want to own the car. Some do not very good reputations (Manhattan). Finally many do not like none standard registration options (like a Montanna LLC or in my case not registering the car in my state of residence (I want the car to be titled in a state where I keep a house but not live, because of the sales tax rates).
Does anyone have any lenders they have used or would recommend?
Thanks for the help
