I've never worked in a car dealership but it seems to me that the original poster has done all of the work. There is no salesperson required. The only thing the dealership need do is enter the requirements into the order computer, take delivery, and tax and license the vehicle. The delivery and handling (dealer prep) is included ($695), the buyer has already stated he would pay actual tax and license fees. How long will it take the sales department to do minimal work? If the dealership does it right they could wiggle a bunch of coveted 5's which I understand translates to profit in the form of bonus. Plus, wouldn't the "sale" help in increasing their allotment numbers?

Maybe I've just slipped my clutch.
