Thats pretty much what I figured, had to be something like that. The Volume dealer I use, does move the iron. Pretty much every time I have been there, they will deliver at least 3 machines, while I am waiting my turn to get mine, all the paperwork is done right at the parts counter almost like your buying a part. LOL They sell 4 brands, and have a very large back lot with hundreds of machines stack 3-4 high still in there crate.
I do try to always give the locals a chance to get close, meaing within a couple hundred bucks, last year I think the local shop was not playing ball with me since the 850 was such a new hot item, or they thought I was full BS on what I could buy one for. Where as the volume dealer does not gennerally ever play that way, everything has a volume (invoice or close to it)price.
Does the mfgs like Polaris, give the high volume stores preferential treatment as well, when it comes to allocating new hot products? Meaning like the RZR S was a super hot item last year, probably still is to some degree. Do the big volume stores get as many as they want, where the smaller stores get allocated 1-2 for the year?
Also I was wondering why does Polaris not spell out the details of there rebates. They always say get up to 800 or up to 1000 on select models. Why don't the just say what models get what? I ask this becasue I have found some dealers being a little less than honest with me when it come to the rebates. I sure wish Polaris would put the details on there website. Auto mfgs always put there rebate details on there website, so you can look up the model you are interested in and see for yourself what the rebate is on that model.
By the way, I think its great to have a member on here that can give us the real skinny on the rebates like yourself Blueline15. Thank you
