    Searching for a Gen V

    I finally decided I want to upgrade from my Gen III to a Gen V. I’m looking on autotrader, cargurus, and eBay. If anyone has any not listed publicly then please DM with the details.

    I’m local to the Houston area. PPI is a must at by Morgan at Viper Exchange in tomball. I will consider Dallas and Austin area cars as well, but will need help with a viper tech for the PPI. Cars farther away will be considered, but the logistics headache will make things more difficult.

    I’m looking for a base. No ACR’s or TA’s.

    Title: no salvage titles or cars with accident history.

    Exterior: all color combos will be considered.

    Interior: all interiors considered except the peanut butter leather. Not a fan.

    Mods: light mods such as exhaust are ok. Heavy mods aren’t ruled out, but will depend greatly on mod type, who did the work, and supporting documentation.

    Shoot me an email at Roy.devinc@gmail.com

    Thanks!

    I was at VE the other day and they had a Solid black GT in there with TA aero and Brakes in it. You might check it out. They also have a Stryker Red GTS.

    That Stryker is more than I want to spend. I’m not looking for a garage queen because I’m not going to treat her that way. She’ll see miles like my current one.

    Weren’t you selling yours a while back? What made you decide to keep it?

    Well I called and stopped by to look at the black TA clone for sale at B.J. Motors/Viper exchange. I’m not very impressed with Bernie’s customer service. He comes across as a pompous prick and acted as if I was somehow bothering him by inquiring about the car. First on the phone, then in person when I dropped by. Which is strange because my dealings the couple of times I’ve had in service with Morgan were great.

    Maybe he was having a bad day or has anyone else gotten this impression?

    Don't know Bernie but I can tell you that cloning a TA is sacrilege and should be punishable by something truly awful!

    Lol! I tend to agree, but either way after dealing with Bernie yesterday I won’t spend a dime with those guys. I’m not saying I need the red carpet rolled out, but I’ll be damned if I have to feel like I’m bugging/begging you to hand over a sack of money. Lol

    You should give them some feedback. All my dealings and inquisitions have been pleasant and I didn't feel that way. Let management know, that's how businesses improve... or decide not to.

    Isn't Bernie the owner of VE? I considered buying a '15 GT from him but changed my mind as I had my heart set out for a GTS after shopping a bit and he stopped responding to me as soon as I asked about a different car.

    I inquired some time ago about a car they had and I got short replies and then when I asked a question about another car I got no answer. The black GTS they have is right up my alley but not sure I will put up with being treated that way.

    They seem to have a solid reputation with quality cars.

    I got my ‘14 from him this past Summer and had a great experience with Bernie and his team. He was prompt with email replies and the transaction was quick and pain free. They picked my wife and I up from the airport so that we could pick up the car and drive it back to Dallas.

    That being said, I wonder if he is transitioning from being a Viper place to a more exotic car place. I’m seeing all these million + Supercars that he is obtaining and it just seems like his clientele is changing. Would not be surprised if he’s not as interested in prospective buyers inquiring about the few vipers he has left in stock (that aren’t ACRs or special editions).

    From the above two replies it sounds like this is his MO lately then for whatever reason...

    I don’t think you should have to spell out being polite/giving good customer service to a business like that personally. If he/they cared enough it should be self evident. Maybe this business model works for them. Not my cup of tea though when the sales guy or owner is too cool or too good to be bothered to spend a little time to politely sell a car. *shrug*

    I ultimately felt that Viper Exchange is a reputable place to get a car and I found the car that I wanted. Finding the perfect Viper may be getting harder and harder nowadays. In my short and novice experience in buying cars, I’d personally rather deal with a less than ideal salesman or owner but get the car that I want then get some red carpet treatment with free pens and tshirts on a car that I had to settle for. Bernie was great to me but I literally interacted with him less than an hour during the whole negotiation process via email and pickup. FWIW.

    I have to ask, was it a black ACR-E they were trying to pass off as an authentic TA?

    I think it was just a plain old gts if I’m not mistaken. They did mention it wasn’t a real TA. He said it just had all the TA goodies installed.

    I think it's a GT not GTS.

    Too many miles for me but that 14 GTS is about perfect.

    You might be right. I’ve started to black out the bad encounter from my memory.

    The 2014 listed for 87k? Nope. Had that garish looking caramel leather interior listed. I just think it clashes with the look of the car so bad.
