It just took me by surprise when Mark said that, because I've read a lot of stuff here about the Texas group buy but I don't recall reading that T.L. was part of the way they got the price that low.
I hear ya, surprised me too. He told me he assumes all forum members are TL members.
Here's the math on my '14 Summit 4x4 Hemi thru him:
$54,890 (MSRP excl $995 dest)
- 2,519 (Friends/fam disc to get to FFP of 52,371 as starting point)
- 518 (1% TL disc on 51,829 Invoice)
- 2,879 (Mystery/Dealer disc)
$48,974 (5.5% below 51,829 invoice)
+ 995 (destination)
- 1,000 (Conquest rebate for simply having an Infiniti on lease)
$48,969 Total cost before other deal costs
+ 125 (Dealer doc fee...I consider this a junk fee and part of price)
+ 108 (TX dealer inventory tax...I consider this a junk fee and part of price)
+ 600 (Semi transport from TX to my front door in OH)
$49,802 (Actual price paid excl tax, title/license)
So I paid (in my mind) 5.7% below Invoice all in or 10.9% off MSRP all in. Best deal by far for my situation. I tried a local dealer on lot unit but it had a fatal hood paint flaw and some body plastic gouges so I rejected it and once I was in an order situation this deal saved me $1,600 net using above math over my best Cleveland dealer option. I had intended to make the pickup a mini vacation with my 18 yr old son since he is going to UofT Austin but I mangled my leg in a motocross crash so I had to ship it.
I LOVE my summit
