Did I miss out on a great deal?

Today i was at Sam Ash and i spotted a used jem7wh for 1,899...

Nope, not really a bargain price at all tbh. Signatures generally add no value if that's what you're concerned about.

That's way too high for a used VWH.

You only missed out on making it a good deal for the seller. I second that it is way too high for a used VWH.

Re: Did I miss out on a great deal?

i guess it depends on the year as well... mines 06' practically untouched and if i were to sell it i would try for 1600-1700. Whether someone buys it for that price, thats another story. Jem's retail for $4399 here in Australia and given the current exchange rate there's a $2000 difference in price.

yer i know... i dont think id ever plan on selling it so i guess it doesnt matter anyway. Thats what's great about all the ATD models. Prices are just skyrocketing. i wonder where it ends with those models.

They street for about that much but the recommended retail price is $4,995.
