Walked into my local (Redlands) dealership in Southern California (where I bought my last 4 quads). I was there to buy a brand new '04 Yamaha Raptor 80 for my nephew for his Birthday... The asking price, $2499.00 MSRP. A closer look at the Fine Print on the tag, Frieght Charge $205.00 and a Setup Fee of $250.00 plust Tax & Lic added to the $2499.00 WTF!!! . No way I was gonna pay that price.
My regular salesman was there, I started in with the Price. My wife already figured out the Maximum, with the extra charge, tax, setup bla,bla,bla. $3250.00.
I told him to dump the Frieght Charge and Setup fee and I'll pay with CASH, $2600.00 OTD. I reminded him again that, I bought my last 4 quads from you guys, brought in new customers and friends, and I buy parts here... at least knock off the Extra BS charge. His reply was, Sorry, it's the last of the Raptor 80's we have, and they're in HIGH DEMANDS. So, I'm gonna pay out the A$$ for something you have a shortage on right? With a blank look on his face, He went back to talk to The Wizard of OZ in a hidden back room.
Well Bob, I got at knocked down. $3150.00 OTD... I laughed my ass off , What, you mean this is the best you can do? I have been coming in here for the last 8 years for part,supplies,and bringing you new customers and this is the best you can do?. Sorry... $3150.00 is the lowest we can do... Needless to say, I told them, the next referral won't be you guys, and my future parts, and quads will no longer be purchased here (loud enough for everyone in the store could hear)... Dunno know, maybe I was just having a w00terty day, and I wanted to get this Raptor for my nephew, or Customer Loyalty don't mean Jack w00ter these days... Don't think the salesman, had any pull on the price... it was the lady in the back pulling the strings... :angry



UPDATE: I found a Dealer in Victorville (35 miles away) that accepted my first offer!!!! :rock

I bought a shorelander trailer from the yami dealer in San Jose. Went back about a week later and bought some gear (paddles, gas can, etc.) As I was getting ready to pay, the manager came up and told the parts people that I get a 10% discount. I asked why and he said cuz I bought the trailer from them.
