Default Les Stanford subtraction not adding up

Anybody else notice Les Stanford's subtraction when calculating 15% off?? But what's a G-note among friends?

Why not simply point it out to them, then?

I'm blocked from that part of the forum. Rules, I guess. No other reason. I tried to post there.

It’s too bad these guys weren’t more competitive since they’re only a 6 hour drive from me. Every time I’ve checked, their prices are higher than Kerbeck or MacMulkin.

I wasn’t able to close a deal with them either. Ended going out of state to purchase.

Curious as to why you would ask us and not them.

Thank you for the comment MsEllie. We are in fact taking a full 15% off MSRP with no tricks or gimmicks. Where was it listed that the 15% off MSRP calculation was incorrect so I can fix that? I appreciate the feedback. Anyone can feel free to reach out to me directly at anytime in regards to pricing or putting a deal together. Even if your already dealing with someone else here I can get involved to get you your best deal to earn your business. We appreciate our Forum friends business and support.

Thanks again!

I get 12.8% on the one they posted in the dealer inventory area of the forum. It’s in their newest thread. Like the first post.

8,762/68,475 = 12.8%

68,475 - 58,203 = 10,272
10,272/68,475 = 15%

So it doesn't calculate out correctly the first way but does the second way.

.

Edit: haha. they fixed it while I was calculating. It's correct now.

The actual dollar discount off MSRP was incorrect but the final sale price listed was correct at 15% off MSRP like the ad states. Thank you for pointing that out, it has been corrected.

I leased my 2016 Stingray from Les Stanford (I dealt with Goran) and it was the easiest transaction I ever had and the deal was better then the other top 5 dealerships. I am now waiting for my 2019 GS to come in next month to Les Stanford. I have nothing bad to say about them and they really seem like straight shooters.The 15% off seems legit.

Hey James, it was just a mistake. I make a few a day. When I quit making them, I guess I will be flower bed fertilizer.

A mere human, I guess. I never make mistakes - they are features of my life.
