Dave: "What have you got for us today, Steve?"
Steve: "This is unbelievable. The ad yesterday was wrong! The 850i
brakes were listed with the wrong price!"
Dave: "This sounds exciting, Steve. Tell us more."
Steve: "Okay, I'm talking about the same exact pieces Dinan sold as its
Stage 1 Brake Conversion. 324x30mm rotors. Big 850i calipers. Brake Pads.
Dinan sells their kit for $1,495. If you are lucky, maybe you can get them
to give you 10% off."
Dave: "That's not much of a discount is it?"
Steve: "No, Dave, it isn't. But before I tell you what the correct price
is, first, let me tell you what cars can use these brakes."
Dave: "You mean more than one chassis series of BMW can use these brakes,
Steve: "That's right, Dave. They will fit E24 six series, E28 five
series, E34 five series, E32 seven series, and of course, E31 eight
Dave: "That's quite a few applications, Steve. Is there anything else?"
Steve: "Yes Dave, there is. The asking price will also include the high
tech 8 series backing plates. These feature a stamped in air scoop to
direct that cooling air to the calipers and rotors."
Dave: "This is almost too good to be true. I bet Dinan doesn't include
the backing plates."
Steve: "Your right, Dave."
Dave: "Okay. I can't stand it any longer. You listed these yesterday at
$600. What's the right price for the rotors, the calipers, the brake pads
and the backing plates?"
Steve: "Dave, the right price is $500 plus shipping. We are going to blow
this set-up out today!"
(audience applause; slow fade of lights as upbeat music starts . . .)
