The invoice from Duval specifies that the LIST price for my cats is $545 and $585 (that is not what they charged me). So in reality, the one dealer near me charges list, while the others are charging MORE than retail list. Very nice. I've bought a few things from the one with the lowest price and have "assumed" I was getting a discount because they were cheaper than other dealers, instead, they're just not GOUGING me as much as the others. That said, dealer items that are inexpensive or for which I'm in a rush, I'll still go to them because they're also nicer than the other folks have been.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
From what I know selling commission is about 40%. So one seller would make $250 profit on the sale, the other "only" $200.
That kind of profit is justifiable when you are selling fresh meat that might get rotten before customer arrives, but not on special orders that coming from the warehouse spend 1 day at the parts department.
I prize Internet for getting more competition and cutting down such practices.
