from home. are web sites that allow you to anonymously negotiate with several dealers at once to get the best price. you can workup inventories at different dealerships on-line and call around and negotiate a price over the phone instead of on the show room floor where the dealer has the upperhand. find out what kind of financing you qualify for. go to your local bank or apply on-line to see what local payments would be. you can concentrate on negotiating your bottom line rather than calculating your monthly costs in your head. google has released a newproduct called google drive, their free cloud service for anyone to use. it offers you a way to store, organize your digital life.
