Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

^^ Crazy... You have all these nice cars, yet you cannot form a proper paragraph... My eyes need a rest after struggling to get through that diatribe.

You just "bitched" more about people "bitching" than they "bitched" about the price of the Jeep.

Anyone who wants more HP can add S/C`er or plenty of other upgrades which is 1/2 the fun.
Bitching about a dealer who gets 5k over is just crazy..If they can get it, God bless them.
I would pay 5k over in a heartbeat, especially if I can pick one up now and have before everyone else. Don`t most new body style desirable cars get more $$$?
I have X5M with Shnitzer turbos and 700HP and it will never feel like my Jeep or any America muscle car but is a nice driver and a sleeper. It won`t lay rubber but that is not what is meant for. I sold the RR after 60 days as they depreciate quickly but was a nice truck as well.
Everyone should stop bitching over the pricing since nobody really cares and Jeep isnt going to lower price because of all the complaining. Dealers wiill sell everyone they get and customers will either pay or can go elsewhere.
The only valid bitch in this forum is late delivery but would you prefer they just deliver when they are not 100%.
I never comment on these pages but it is ridiculous reading all bitching. It would be much nicer to talk about who will have the 1st S/C`er for them and exhausts as well as other upgrades vs hearing about the freaklng price.
I`d bet that most of the bitchers wouldnt even buy truck if it was 10% cheaper as they would rather complain. I cant wait to get mine and only wish is that it will be done ASAP and my dealer will call and say come and get it.

Of course you are right, if that dealer had a guy that could end up not buying it, fine he can charge whatever he wants for the car as it is in high demand and nobody's name is on it. However, if there was a guy for the car and he tried to price hike him, that is not how it should be.

I agreed on a price with my dealer, that is why I ordered the car in the first place. If he now would try to get a higher price out of it, I don't even think that is legal business practice. Despite that it would not make me a loyal customer of the dealership nor buy any further jeep in my life. (I have bought 3 so far within two years) So price hiking is actually a very short sighted way of making money... and defies the practice of the classical handshake!

Whats the big deal? We're just discussing the price. Besides dealer markups are insulting for a repeat customer.

I find it pretty defining that you would come on here to complain about us disliking the markup and heavy price increase while you list 500K in cars you own. Ahh, now it makes sense. With your funding and obvious intelligence, why shouldnt you come on here and give us peons a good slap. Shame on us for trying to save a little extra for the kids trust or college, much less, a tad more for retirement or investments.

My thoughts exactly. I suppose he didn't earn the money to buy all of these expensive cars by writing a bestseller.

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

I just feel bad for him, being suckered into paying over sticker... Even if you have the money, I don't find it right. It's not like they are paying more for it from the manufacture. As mentioned, it is just an insult to the buyer. To each their own, guess he needed to vent after all the money lost in his vehicles...

None of you have ever paid more for something than you felt it was worth? Be honest.....
What about those nike shoes on your feet? Did they really cost $150 to make? Or your jeans, watches, tv's, cell phone.......come on people. It's a free market enterprise....something is worth what the public wil pay.......end of story.

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

There are plenty, 22 to be exact on cars.com most at or less than MSRP.

The ebayer probably thought they were going to be THE first with one and paid the premium. No one pays nearly $70K for a car without doing any research.
