MSRP and dealer margins.. whats actually a good deal?
I'm bouncing back and forth between a Vision and a Cross Country. Now that im getting closer to deciding which bike I actually want, I guess its time to figure out what actually constitutes a good deal. Most dealers around me still have 13's in stock also, and i'm flexible on whether I get a 13 or 14.
My questions are:
#1. How much margin does a dealer have on these bikes? Obviously that determines how far below MSRP I can negotiate.
#2. Any idea how much of a deduction should be factored in for a 13, as opposed to a 14? I dont believe either bike currently has any factory rebates.
I know dealers here in FL can charge a "dealer" fee, which is their administrative costs that they pass on, but are there any other BS fees that I should be aware of that are strictly fluff for the dealer?
