RE: The dealer percentage is 40% of the total cost

Ozzie, I agree ...everyone should seek the best deal..which ultimately it is on line. I think my point is when using a dealers services, provided how little business they are actually getting these days, their should not be an expectation of on line pricing. The one reason alone I shop on line is the free shipping offers, the price and "other reasons" like dealing with an asshole dealer..which is very common in the high end world.

If I am going to pay dealer / B&M pricing, I should be treated like gold. If the dealer can earn my expectations (above and way beyond what on-line purchasing can provide) by allowing in home demo, being there for service, (Usually a free loaner whilst the repair is under way) and being a decent sport for the profit I am "giving them" then it is a good deal to support the B&M's in those particular circumstances.

A certain expectation of added value must be earned by the dealer and performed.
