(i did that at another dealer), i just walked in, got a salesperson to talk to me, gave him a list of what i wanted in the car and told him my price. i told him about the 50/1 and told him i was the "1". he would earn a commmission with no work.

i've done that twice and it has worked twice.
You spent 45 days dicking around negotiating the price of a Jeep? A discussion that could / should have taken an hour? You must have a lot of free time on your hands.
