2) which AD offers best discount?
different AD offers different discount structure. even different branches of the same AD offers different discount structure.
different members receive different discount structure. so this means the discount structure i receive may not be the same discount structure by a fellow member.
members may or may not want to share their AD/SA contact with you. please do not be offended. why? first you are stranger to them, they would not want to jeopardize their relationship built with their AD/SA. so if possible, join the gathering that are organized to know the forum members. do put your name/nick down. avoid turning up unannounced.
do understand that regular customers of AD may get better discount than those walk-in customers or first time customers. these regular customers may not be willing to share with you their lobang. why? because in the past these people have good discount until someone betrayed their trusts. end up these regular customer do not get any more good discounts because the people who bought them went public with their discount given. this in turn got the SE/SA into unnecessary inconvienience, which resulted in penalties imposed on AD by rolex and other brands.
as such, my suggestion is to do leg work and see which AD is willing to offer you the best discount with/without your negotiating skills.
if you need assistance, be humble and ask. however, dont expect to be spoon fed. do your leg work and say you went to
AD 1 - price
AD 2 - price
and so forth. look at previous post where there is a list of AD in alphabetical order. if you do not know where they are, kindly visit rolex website and navigate to find out where they are located.
coming here and ask what is the best discount for this model or which AD has best discount may warrant the wrath of senior members because they have been seeing the same questions posted repeatedly. questions like which AD and best price for this model could warrant response that blast you to oblivion. please do not be offended.
