I always give the local dealers a chance....
Agreed... I have always had the best luck negotiating from a distance (via phone, email, ect). When we bought our 550 we had it shipped from Florida to New England, and it was still cheaper than the local guys. M3 came from Vermont the same way.
Local guys always get a shot because I feel it's right to support the locals... But, I won't over pay to do it.
