So i am in NC and luckily I have one dealer 10 minutes away and 2 others within 30 minutes. I need a roof switch and am really surprised at the price difference. The closest one is of course the most expensive at $50. The other two both charge $36. Is it normal for one dealer to charge more than 25% more than others? They are all in metro areas.

Yes . I call around but dealers who are different auto groups dictate different margins . I know which ones to avoid over the years plus some are better at my MBCA discount than others as well .

Great! I'm glad I was able to call him for you and get you a better price! :D
Next time, just mention my name!

Same problem here in Alberta. I had a friend who worked for eight years at one BMW dealership in Edmonton. It was their policy to mark up all parts 15% above the MSRP. The other dealer in the city had no similar mark up.

Buyer beware!
