Post 21 referred to buying at wholesale and selling at retail as a "questionable business practice" when it is in fact the business model.
If one doesn't like the dealer's trade offer, then don't take it. But don't call it a questionable business practice, unless you had a guaranteed buyback price that they had agreed to and refused to honour. That could be unethical. But buying and selling with a margin isn't. It is capitalism.
