    figure will email em' telling em its probably not selling coz u can get it brand new from jomashop at just over 5.3k
    just a friendly heads up


    his response:


    That website is a grey market dealer. It would be more expensive from an authorized dealer, which mine is from


    i doubt if buyers really care that much that he paid more for it from an AD lol

    Guess he doesn't understand the concept of a market... Well, you tried to help; that's all you can do.

    Maybe he thinks it's worth that price because it still has the remaining AD warranty? I have no idea whether the warranty would be honored for a second owner.

    Exactly this.

    Walk up to a strange woman and tell her she's too fat to be wearing leggings, she will NOT thank you.
