Thanks dude, ended up grabbing it for 121k. I tried to squeeze harder but I didnít have any leverage.

No lie...It was damn tough writing a check that large for a car though.

When I called them on Sunday this is how they described the process, they'd set the approval limits and terms and just said that interest rates could adjust if the loan exceeded 110% of the cars value or something along those lines. But essentially I'd have a blank check for 90 days to effectively shop around with, this made sense and similar to how USAA works.

I'm pretty sure I got somebody on the phone that wasn't familiar with the pre-approval process and pushed me through the traditional route. I suppose it worked out okay, but wouldn't have if I were shopping various cars all over the place.

Yeah, only $35k though but well within any valuation standards for that car for LTV.

Believe it or not, the salesman still tried to sell me gap insurance.

When I was young and dumb and buying crap for Honda's, Mugen did not make a gas cap at that point.

Now I'm just older and buying crap for Porsches and Tacomas.

I think we should review lightstream.

1. Head to website, lightstream.com
2. Apply for auto/boat/rv or whatever loan and select terms.
3. Send them whatever GDD documents they need to prove 100k salary.
4. They wire you funds overnight, wherever you want it sent.
5. Shop like a true bauller and pay cash, get title.

I think about selling the Mazda, then I drive it and realize that there's a reason why I've kept it so long...it's just too much fun.

Can you back out/return the funds after step 4 and return the funds if the sale falls through for whatever reason?

Yep.

Although maybe I should lightstream a Boxster and put my MX5 on BaT.

This kinda scares me though:

5.29% - 15.14%

What's the requirements for the 5% vs the 15%?

But I thought you mentioned that LS rates kind of spiked after it caught on? But that makes purchasing a car out of state much simpler. Especially since so many of the cars Iíve seen owner has title in hand.

Looks like a new car purchase from a dealer gives me "5.39% to 6.94%".

Would need to check the local rates to see if they can beat those, but it is nice to have the title in hand, I guess.
