  1. Big Red's 21" Wheel Setup (w/ Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 Plus)

    Looks awesome! Can you link the caliber painting kit you used? Also how hard was it? I'm still looking for a 2022 to buy but will be ordering a 2023 when the orders open. My first three things to do when I eventually get one of these cars in my hands are 1) window tint 2) wheels 3)caliper paint...

    Agreed! Yeah it appears the MME is the perfect vehicle for where I'm at in life. A significant improvement (looks, performance, space, tech) from the 09 Corolla I've been driving. But not as cool as the C7 I've been dreaming about. However, it will definitely check enough of the fun boxes to...

    According to my wife, I do haha. If the C7 came in a 4dr model (I kinda cringe to imagine what that would look like) perhaps it could be a contender. While there are some other "sporty" options out there now that I've opened the box on getting into an electric, and have the blessing of my wife...

    Yeah I missed that it didn't apply for tax credit. Passing on that deal. I did expand my search East, and found a dealer in Pasco offering a 22 Premium for $63k with the ER battery, so I msg'd them and will see what they respond with. Thanks again for the feedback all. Got too excited haha...
  5. GONNA PASS: Thinking about pulling the trigger on a 2021 MME Premium tomorrow THOUGHTS?

    Yeah overlooking the 2021 aspect and no tax credit, its a no go. I msg'd the sales guy to let him know I won't be coming up tommorow since it doesn't apply for tax credit, and he asked what if they could lower the price. I told him to hit me up in the morning with their best offer knowing I'll...
  6. GONNA PASS: Thinking about pulling the trigger on a 2021 MME Premium tomorrow THOUGHTS?

    DOH! ....and that is what I'm missing. Duh, a used car won't work for the tax credit. Dang it. So tax credit out of the equation. Thoughts on the deal without?
  7. GONNA PASS: Thinking about pulling the trigger on a 2021 MME Premium tomorrow THOUGHTS?

    Got excited and didn't realize it doesn't apply for tax credit being a 2021 model. Doesn't make it worth the mark up. Gonna pass on this one. Thanks for those who chimed in. Mods feel free to delete this pots. So I was originally planning to order a 2023 MME Premium or GT next month...

    Yeah I think it might be worth jumping on, and I will still place an order for a 2023. Kinda gives me the best of both worlds. I can have a MME now, a Premium one at that, which has all the bells and whistles I would order anyways, plus take advantage of the full tax credit. Then in a year or...

    OK, so I actually found a 2021 MME Premium up in Seattle (2.5hrs North) for $62,991. Only has 830 miles on it, has had the factory recall done for the glass roof taken care of, and all the features (less the ER battery) that I would have configured it with (360 pano camera, power lift gate...

    Yeah, I mean I'm definitely late to this game so to speak, looking for a popular vehicle at the end of its tax credit etc. I think my plan is to order a 2023 no matter what, configured the way I want and just wait. Then in the coming months I'm going to keep trying to find one to acquire now...

    Good to know. No I've been using Autotrader.com and Vroom. But perhaps the better plan is searching dealerships directly. Again, I wasn't planning to get one now as I need to pay off our other car first, but I can swing that and just put a little less down on a new rig if my plan is to take...

    So yeah I've been searching (not heavily as I was planning to order) within 200 miles of Portland zip code and not much is coming up, and everything that is, is either "on order" or $68k and up with all the markups. I'll keep looking though.

    1) Still need to do my research on what State rebates are available and their restrictions. 2) Use case will be me commuting about 60 miles roundtrip 2-3 days a week for work, then the days I work from home I'll have my wife drive it to save miles & fuel on our Acadia, and of course being the...
  14. New here - looking for advice on what to order

    Yeah I was able to jump on a rebate via our local power company the reimburses me $500 towards the $550 I paid for the JuiceBox 40amp EVSE, then another $150 ish on parts to install the 240 outlet myself. I will pay for an inspection to ensure it's all legit though. I've got the JuiceBox...

    Yeah I really still want that C7, but just isn't in the cards for my family dynamic right now. Some day I'll get a "me" car haha. Glad to hear your experience with the C7 was what I was expecting (reliability, low cost of ownership, relatively efficient etc.) The more this thread goes on - and I...

    Curious. What made you go for painting it vs say a vinyl?
  17. New here - looking for advice on what to order

    Good idea! Yeah we're keeping the Acadia for sure. It is the first car we've ever had that my wife actually says she loves having. The rest (the Corolla was hers before we got the Acadia and I started commuting in it) have just been vehicles to get you from A to B. I personally am more of a...

    So my residence is actually in SW Washington. I'm not sure what rebates WA offers, but will definitely take a look. While finding something this calendar year could happen, from the looking I've done in the past couple of weeks to try and find a physical vehicle to just sit in, let alone test...

    Unfortunately with the prices of things its probably not far off. I hope not though, as that will price me out of the Premium.
