Potential 2007 buyer, questions?

Hey all-
The idea of a brand new car has been haunting me lately, I would really like to get a 2007 ZX3. Theres one that caught my eye a few towns over from me and I have some questions on it:

Its equipped with the safety package, which lists ABS and side curtains, but for some reason I thought rear discs were part of it, can anyone confirm?

Its equipped with the Interior Upgrade pack as well, Ive never been a fan of leather, but it sounds unique enough. Anyone have pics of this option?

Its a SES with those options and the 6cd changer, it stickers for $17,300 I think, what is a reasonable amount off that? I know they have the 2500 or .9% financing thing going right now, but how much haggle room do you think there is? I think I read about a "friends and family plan" or something along those lines..

Finally, theres a "JOB#1" listed on the online window sticker, what does this mean?

Thanks in advance!

wow 17k for a ses, it seems a lil high, is 17k with the 2500 off i think if you can hangle them down to 14,5 i think itd be a good deal, i didnt need all the options just pw pl and i was happy with that, and i got mine for 12,9 after taxes

so really 17k for me seems like a lot 4k extra dollars for leather a sunroof,maybe?
and possible rear discs, i dont think 4k is worth it, is it for you?

17k is the sticker cost, theres no way that Id pay that much... just wondering what people think I could get them down to. 14.5k is where ill be with just the rebate, hopefully theres more room.

Im interested in the SES because most of the stuff id want (tach, fogs, tilt, etc.) would bump a SE up past the standard SES price. Plus, its hard to find a new ZX3 near me thats manual and a color Id actually want.

Thanks for the reply! Anyone else? Please tell me someone knows about the safety pack on '07's or the special leather, i wont be able to go look at the car for a few days and the suspense is killin me! lol

If I remember right, if you take 10% off MSRP that will get you close to invoice( this does not apply to trucks) then take rebates off of that. If the car is a slow mover( couple months on the lot) they might go lower. My 06 zx5 msrp was 17,400 and we got it down to 13,700.

Job 1 in Ford Speak typically means the first builds coming out of the plant... like for a new model. For instance, the Job 1 Edges were just made not long ago. I'm not sure what it would mean for an 07 Focus. Have to ask the dealer.

If you decide to go for it, send me a PM and I can get you a PIN for that "Friends and Family Plan". It should be good for an extra several hundred dollars off.

*edit* This should actually be "Friends and Neighbors Plan". The plan for family members is different.
