More than $6 bucks.:p $115+$6.00 (s/h) = 121
You would have paid tax at Lowe's

What are the state and local sales tax rates in Tennessee?

Generally, the state sales and use tax rate is 6.00% and the local rate is 2.25%. However, the local rate will vary from 1.00% to 2.75%. Certain circumstances may create exemptions from one or both of the taxes, while qualified consumer types may enjoy reduced rates of tax.

I could have had a friend of mine buy it for me tax exempt with a business license. Sure it would have only saved me $12 bucks, but $12 bucks is $12 bucks. :D

I'm afraid not. I've owned 6 BMW's in the last 7 years and I currently own 2. There's nothing wrong with being tight. I work hard for my money and $12.00 is enough to buy my son a new toy or take him to McDonalds for lunch. Those that have children would surely agree.



If you could have your oil changed at one BMW Center for say $50 vs. another for $62 and they both offered an equal level of service, which dealer would you be sitting at?

I don't agree. $12 for lunch at McDonald's for lunch is a total waste of money and bad for both his and your health. Nothing wrong with saving $12 though.

First of all, I agree with Sean about $12 is $12, I actually just called AMEX to rebate $20 from their best-value guarantee program... 5 minutes phone call for $20, definitely worth the troubles.

Anyway, in the Griot's Garage catalog, they mentioned their PC is a little different than others because theirs don't conduct heat to the pad??? is that true? or is the PC at Lowe's exactly the same as Griot's?

I tend to think that Griot's Garage has the best of everything but they also charge a hefty premium for that "quality guarantee" and the brand. (like more than 2x the price for the Rhino ramps)

If you order the hook and loop contour backing plate with the PC it's the same as Griot's.

I get upset if someone robs me of $12, but at the same time I just consider it a lesson learned (and store the information) if I rob myself of $12 due to lack of shopping around! ;)
Who knew :dunno: But we don't have a Lowe's here anyway.

Just washed my car with p21s after the polish and wax after 2 weeks. SpeedShined it after the wash. All I can say is WOW. And it's silver. Great stuff, all of it. :thumb:
