MW, the problem it that when the dealer sees people doing this sort of thing they say to them selves "why shouldn't we do that, we are the dealers". Then they find ways and reasons to justify doing it to all of us. If you have a written MSRP commitment they have two options one, tell you they have a dealer prep fee of $5K or what ever and you are buying the car at MSRP + prep fee or they will not call you when your number comes up and sell it to someone else that will pay the fee.Modern Wedgie said:Please tell me how this is a bad thing?
So, yes, I'm glad that we live in a free market society.

Transio, I quoted your post from the other board....Good luck with that.
Actually, no.... I hope you total it on your way home from the dealership.... into your house, burning it down, and killing your favorite fish.
What you don't realize by your greedy capitalist attitude is that you're destroying the market for those of us who actually want to own the car. You (and similarly minded dealers) are the reason I withdrew my deposit and dropped back 6 months in line.
I really believe that what goes around comes around, though. I'm gonna laugh when your dealership installs a $10k "aftermarket package" consisting of floor mats and pin-stripes. You really deserve that.
I think technically he wished injury to the guys Elise and death to his fishGenjuro said:Transio, I quoted your post from the other board....
Why in the hell would post something wishing injury/death on a person for simply selling a car?
The painting is by a man named Hokusai Katsushika. He lived between 1760-1849. The painting is called Mt. Fuji Off Kanagawa or The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.Patricko said:Not to change the subject...but it does need some levity
Genjuro, why is your Elise being swallowed up by a tidal wave or is it a tsunami?
I we all have a right to sell what we OWN for whatever we want. I don't have a problem with someone selling the car. I do have a problem with someone trying to sell a spot in line...azstar said:Transio-
Just as you have the right to move your deposit, the buyer has the right to sell his car for whatever price a buyer is willing to pay. You can't tell me that when I sell a car of mine for more than "Blue Book" because I find a buying willing to pay more, that I am somehow doing something wrong. The only difference is timing. Get over it.

So are you saying that Lotus stole the design for the S2 Elise from Mr. MiyagiGenjuro said:The painting is by a man named Hokusai Katsushika. He lived between 1760-1849. The paiting is called Mt. Fuji Off Kanagawa or The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.
Perhaps.... I'd have to perform some more research.Patricko said:So are you saying that Lotus stole the design for the S2 Elise from Mr. Miyagi
