I've been in discussions with a local dealer about ordering a GT500. I know the owner in passing through my boss. Waht I was told by the salesman was that any dealer can order one, but that they would have to send a mechanic to become certified and meet some other requirements. HE estimated that it would cost about $3000 to do and might not be worth the hassle to them. Of course, I offfered to pay the $3K over MRSP given the other markups going on. Still waiting to see if they'll accept that, not bother with it at all, or screw the quasi personal relationship and get one for the highest bidder.
