I Think that JBSpeed either needs to play by the rules or just get off the forum....

That simple the rest of us all get along and can follow the rules perfectly fine, why cant he..

OHhh and by the way off the topic JBSpeed you sent the wrong roundels to Stylezaaa we tried to install the "great qualitt product" as you call it and it didnt fit.

Just as a sidenote... MAP is illegal in the USA! nobody can tell you what to sell items for! Put inplace around the 80's this is to prevent pricefixing, free market manipulation. I'm so damn tired of people trying to impose MAP on retailers when it's completely against the LAW!

Whenever a manufacturer mentions that to me, I just inform them of the legal consequences which generally quiets them down pretty quick. Sometimes they then try to tell you that they will not continue to provide you with their product anymore which also is against the LAW and even worse!

Anyway, the whole MAP excuse doesn't work!

Hey ICE.. das gleiche gilt uebrigens auch in Deutschland!

I know, but we have to respect that some vendors feel the need to accept MAP.

I think everyone should just post his price here!

If you want to sell here you have to follow our rules, not your supplier/manufacturer/whoever...

Ja.
Und hier bei uns in Deutschland funktioniert es viel besser.
Es gibt die unverbindliche Preisempfehlung, aber H?ndler bewerben Ihren Preis und nennen die unverbindliche Preisempfehlung nur als Referenzwert, unverbindlich eben.

MAP doesn't apply to forums as it's a "membership - as in you have to register" based community

Then: POST it this way!

"Pricing below MAP"!
edit: And post the MAP so we know what to expect!

Where's the big deal?

99.99% of the announcements have a LINK that takes you to that page.
In less time that it takes to write your post above, you can "RIGHT CLICK, OPEN IN NEW TAB/WINDOW" and not navigate aware from E60 forums.
What's the big deal?

The big deal is that you get into hot water with your supplier for posting below MAP anywhere thanks to countless others trying to "catch" you doing something the original supplier doesn't approve of. AFE is a perfect example of this. They force MAP, but call ANY vendor and they'll slash prices once they find out you found a lower price somewhere else.

The problem is too many vendors selling the same exact product. I think you need to relax your restrictions on price and let people know that if certain products are listed as "call us for best pricing" that's what they mean and it's only better for the general membership here. <-- main benefit is membership here gets better pricing and vendors stay in good sorts with their suppliers.
