They do it cause they can and they know that people will pay for it cause they will be so hard to come by, its easy enough to stay away from that but there will be panic here when people really catch wind of this RS, it's still not well known here in the States, so they will pay an arm and a leg to get their hands on oneHow can they do this? is a price not a price??
YesI'm sure there were more than a few RS500s first registered to the dealership, so presumably something similar?
Agreed, patience is very key for us, the sheep who buy into this tactic are going to be eaten alive next spring. I'm confident I will be able to not only get one but negotiate price a little based on who I've talked to and who I trust.We have dealer inventory first then customer orders. Those not aware of that will rush to buy dealer inventory when there really isn't a need. Worst case you wait a year when build to demand kicks in and order one from a more reasonable dealer. That's my plan. If the numbers are not right, I will wait a year. Gives me more time to save and owe less on my trade in. Win win for me.
