Went to check out a couple of cars I'm interested in. Wanted to trade in the GT. First went to a Jeep Dealer who absolutely refused to accept the car in trade. He was only willing to have a jobber come in and he'd give me whatever the jobber gave him.
So I went over to the Mercedez dealer to see about the GLK350. He said much the same thing.
So, my curiousness aroused, I went to a high volume high end wholesaler. He said the same thing - also that he could sell 10 Jeep Wranglers before he'd even have one interested in the GT.
How much did the jobber offer for a 2010 535i with 6000 miles on her you ask?
$ 27,000 US dollars -- "maybe that much" he said.
