It’s not bs. There is the list price, and then the selling price. It’s that simple.....many years ago (the 60’s) many dealers tried and succeeded in selling Fender and Gibson guitars for list price... 48th Street Mannys in NYC started discounting 30 to 40% off of the list price... there was only list price and the dealer could sell the item really for whatever price he cared to sell it for........this is where discounting all began in the MI industry.....and there was no MAP pricing back then. That is basically price fixing and legally the mfrs have found ways around this to coerce dealers to maintain “equal” pricing between stores.. can you imagine if the car mfrs tried to do this?The only price that matters is the one you pay. Everything else is BS.
