@burdogg, looks like the person selling the Model 3 has taken down the post about it. I know you were pretty active in that thread and praising the poster for being willing to sell the car only for his cost and not being opportunistic enough to want to make a profit.
I was interested in buying the car, especially since he expressed over and over that he was just going to sell it for his cost. I e-mailed him almost immediately after seeing the post. Only to get no reply. Then got a reply two days later that he had sold the car that cost him $60,000 for over $68,000 and if anyone wanted to make a backup offer, they could.
So, even those with the good intentions of not making a profit eventually succumb to the reality that this is America and we'd be fools for not taking what someone is willing to pay. Your Angel of a man who wanted to be Ethical changed his mind quite quickly once offers at a much higher price started coming in.
Not saying he did anything wrong. Completely understand it. Would have been silly for him to decline $68,000 to take an offer at $60,000 just to be ethical.
Just letting you know, including the lawyer that was teaching ethics, that selling a car to someone at a price they are willing to pay for it doesn't make him unethical. It just proves that he's not a financial idiot by turning down a better offer for a lower one just so later reservation holders wouldn't get mad at him because they're still waiting in line to buy the car.
If I had an employee who did that, they'd be fired for incompetence!
