Re: Grossly overpriced
That's just the way distributors want dealers to do. Aside from a handful of companies, most places have these stupidly high list prices and give dealers some sort of discount structure from it. A Jem 7V up here in Canada lists for close to $5000, but retails in stores for about the $2500 area. It's essentially a big marketing thing because companies know people are cheap skates and want a deal every single time and for those folks who don't know better, 65% off list price sounds like a really big discount.
Interestingly enough, has anyone found it strange how some companies use the word RETAIL PRICE when they mean LIST PRICE?
