yeah, here in GA you pay taxes on either the transaction price or the DMV evaluation...which ever is greater. So, if I purchase from a dealer and the GA DMV valuation is less...I'll negotiate to the lesser price (hopefully).

There are quite a few out there for the same price (some higher, some lower), similar spec, etc...

Happy hunting.

I was in a similar situation as you. I owned an XKR that I thoroughly enjoyed but eventually realized that Id always wanted an Aston Martin. This forum and the book were my most valuable resources for info. I saved searches on Autotrader, Autolist, Car Gurus, Cars.com, EBay, etc. Many of these sites will alert you if a new listing matching your search criteria appears. It took me several weeks of searching to locate the right car but it was worth it. I sold my XKR on Bring a Trailer after the Vantage arrived. I found that BaT is a relatively painless process to sell a car. The whole BaT process only took about 2 weeks and the XKR sold for well above my reserve. Good luck with your search.
