This week's Ignite Show features Rob Gruhl. Rob loves to buy cars, but more than that he loves to bargain for cars. He shares his secrets today. This talk was filmed at Ignite Seattle III.

Ignite captures the best of geek culture in a series of five-minute speed presentations on topics ranging from "The Best Way to Buy a Car" to "Hacking Chocolate" to "Transhuman Technology Trends." Imagine that you're on stage in front of an audience of hundreds of people, doing a five-minute presentation using a slide deck that auto-forwards every 15 seconds, whether you're ready or not. What would you do? What would you say? Could you stand the pressure? Every week, find out how some of the smartest minds on the planet dealt with this situation as your host, Brady Forrest, highlights a different talk from Ignites around the world.

The Ignite Show will be released for free weekly. It's available on YouTube (user: Ignite), on our Ignite site and via Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
