    Thanks! I am going to try it. I believe I know what Hold Back is on the type car I want which is 3.8% of factory wholesale…so I ask for invoice less 1.9% of factory wholesale. Makes sense. They make 2% which is a lot better than loosing money. I am also going to have the Doc Fee part of their 2%. Does that sound right?

      John, that sounds like a very fair offer!
