I had a dealer quote me a zilch markup from  http://www.autobytel.com (he
forgot to add the cost for the sport package, even though he had it listed
correctly). When he discovered his mistake he said he would sell me the car
for $800 over cost (KBB wholesale + 1% for local advertising) rather than
the $1200 over cost for a quattro equipped unit. Although the price was
good, I walked out after being lowballed, but I di not make a scene because
his counter offer was quite good.
