Quoted from pocketscience:
How does that work? The Stern site clearly lists the price as $6199.
Stern's dealer pricing is a bit silly in ways.
Dealers can sell below the listed suggested retail price.
The actual factory cost to dealers is supposed to be a secret, as is any price they quote to customers below suggested retail. They cannot advertise, post, or even email price quotes below listed retail to anyone. But they are allowed to sell below retail, and most do.
There is a minimum price they are allowed to sell for, and that is also a secret.
But if you ask around, you can generally find out what the going price is.
A dealer can quote you their discounted price in person or on the phone.
And yes, $5,200 pro seems about right.
Edit: also glad to see Mike back on here.
