    Thoughts on a slightly used - if not at all (honestly), DXT Stainless 9.2...Full set up - installed as well...$6500? Good deal - not?

    Ouch. How much is a new one?

    I know the mvp3 is about a thousand less. New + warranty

    New and installed? I'll drive! (they are saying warranty will be good as it is same shop - no idea if this is correct)

    BOSS - comments?

    Once again - I will drive - anyone - have numbers to these dealers?

    Local guy quoted me over $7k for the 8.2, but that is NYC/Long Island prices - crazy!

    Red's Garage in Port Chester, NY - very close to me - came in at $6100 (little more than way up north)...tax is about 6500...can't get around tax...but he is open 24 hr during storm...thoughts? Is that worth it? - that is all I hear on here about a dealer working with you, being there etc! R&W on LI is higher - way higher...

    If you can not fix anything and do not keep spare parts, then a good dealer that is open when it snows is priceless.
    I like backups - extra everything plus some odd parts. I will fix it later. This way I am self reliant. Last year was the first year the I had to use a backup - No it was not the BOSS, the little Dodge 1500 let a front u joint go that was not that old. Just got out the other Dodge.

    So I would buy the Boss where it is the least expensive. :)

    All valid points. I have to weigh is it worth the drive, gas, and time to head 6 hours North then 6 hours back, plus the 8 waiting and maybe a hotel and meals...

    I'm thinking I will pay about the same and spend almost that much up and back (with additional passenger = food, shopping, and bs!) than if I drop it off and pay the tax...

    I would say that you have to add all the trip cost, Tax and anything else in to the price. So it could end up being more if you have to travel very far.

    Ya - looks to be about the same price to head up there overnight and back...and I dev a relationship with a shop - not a bad thing. I have to decide if I am going Stainless or Not ----
