thats bcos they are the middle-men and the cars are with the actual owners. The actual owners ask the middle-men to sell the car for them. The owner quotes a fixed price (say 19 lakhs for the 300SL). The middle-man quotes it a bit higher (say 23 lakhs) which is a bit negotiable. So the car is sold for say 21 lakhs. Middleman gets 2 lakhs.

The main reason why the owners dont leave the cars with the dealer is that every Tom, Dick or Harry who spots the car goes for a test drive.

A bit off topic but does JMD stand for Jai Mata Di cause I heard bout the same from somewhere

Also his imported car section on the website is wierd. he has pics of imported cars . I clicked on the S2000 and then a window pops up saying click here to buy it

Yep, its exactly that. When you call them up, the system picks up the call and says "Jai Mata Di! Please dial the extension or hold for the operator!" or something .. it was quite funny heh.

No offence!
