I've researched countless times and arrived at this conclusion every year here in DMV.
I have never encountered an instance where a dealer was cheaper than any indy shop..just for kicks I asked my dealer one day how much to mount and roadforce balance 4 new tires ..$180+tax...Indy shop $120 flat.
I guess different markets are different.
