Cool From the SMUGGLER!

Wow!!! what a reputation I have.... feel like gabbar singh! Anyways guys, trust me I have devoted a lot of time, in Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi.... doing window shopping. So I have been able to find some wholesalers who give stuff out really cheap. They are the ones that people call to see if the product is available.
Even I had paid a premium for my head unit and speakers, but I got the Pioneer amp and sub quite cheap, since I was able to find the best guys. Although I still get the stuff installed after paying a premium for the guys that I trust. Sony 504 I saw in Bangalore for 3.9k which was the minimum I was qouted there. In Delhi, shops in South Delhi qoute as high as 5.5k, however you must ask yourself before buying from a shop like that.... how is he going to pay for such a big shop and so many employees? By charging a premium to his customers right!
Thus I refrain to buy from such sellers. I dont want to promote "gray" marketing here, I know Sam and Navin try so hard to promote buying with bill and warranty. But Sam you will be surprised the extent to which stuff is in gray market. The JBL components 606 cost just 4.4k in gray. The CS 50.4 I was qouted for 5.5k. So all stuff is pretty cheap. The Sony 504 can be found at 3.5k! The Pioneer 6100F cost me 7k, however shops in South Delhi were qouting me as high as 9k in gray for the same amp. So you see prices vary a lot! I would recommend strongly that you guys buy stuff with bill and warranty, however stuff like Pioneer which is mostly gray, I dont mind saving a buck or two there.
Lastly, I am not selling any of the above mentioned stuff. Nor am I a smuggler I am just qouting the best prices that I have been able to find so far, for the greater good of the team bhpians!

I did not know this. I have seen exactly 3 hindi movies in my life. 2 because I knew the producer (Ram Balram and Mr. Natwarlal) and had to oblige and 1 because I thought it was an english movie (Bandit Queen).

Nakli niklah toh problem hai....!!

par diff thoda excess hai na. 5500 in grey and say 7-7500 in B&W looks luscious!
Waise this is just my opinion.
