Warning for www.randdmotorsports.com - story below...

so there i was surfing around for a cool set of wheels right.well apparantly the guys at the above website said they could get them for me.i let the guy know i was just window shopping from the get go and he gave me a "deal" anyway.i told him i was going to keep looking around for abetter offer and the guy pops off with some crap about him getting hell for lowering the price and for me to "do the math".i took it as a buy from me or ill break your arm approach.needless to say i got cranky real quick and he got the business end of my temper.its really quite funny really. heres the emails back and forth.i just copied it straight from my yahoo inbox so forgive me if it looks jumbled and stuff .its best to start at bottom and work your way up.




Wow buddy good job killing the sale.No need to get testy i was just shopping around.I understand if you think its a deal and all but no need to be a dick and try to break my arm if i fucking try to look around first.dont tell me to do the fucking math god dammit im the one with the money.in my calculations YOU just lost a potential 2021.60.now go fuck yourself assclown dont contact me again ill take my business elsewhere.its not my fault if people give you hell for setting a low price.word of advice lose the "HURRY UP AND BUY!" aspect of your sales pitch.oh and i will be posting this email on several online forums so people will be warned of how much of a dick head you can be when people are just seeking information.

No, I dont have them on our site. My web guy hasnt put up our Volks page. Ive been a direct dealer for 8 years. As for going rate, the wheels list for $2760. Not sure if you realized that they were that expensive. The pricing I quoted you was a VERY good deal. I ask that you not shop around that figure I gave to you. Its no one elses business what price I gave you, and places will probably call in to Mackin and complain that it was too low. Do the math, thats about $740 off list. Only reason I can do that is because I can still throw them on my SEMA order and get the better pricing. They always offer additional percent off during SEMA.
Do your homework and you will realize that its a great deal.
Thanks.

i cant even find the wheels on your webpage.where do you guys get the wheels from? im not ready to shell out that much without shopping around a bit first.maybe if i saw the going rate for these i might reconsider.

Ernesto,
List price on the std silver spoke is $2760. Since the 19x7.5s have to be ordered, I can do them for $2021.60 - basically, I am still offereing you the SEMA special, but the order has to be in this week for it to apply.
Thanks and let me know what you wish to do.

Re: Warning for www.randdmotorsports.com - story below...

yea I dunno if I agree with your assessment of the whole situation. Seems to me like he is trying to cover his ass because he disclosed to you the price he gets as a dealer for the wheels which is against most dealer agreements. I looked around and saw list prices quoted at 655 a wheel which totals to about the list price he gave you.

I think you may have overreacted just a bit.

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.
