Best deal on 115HP?

What are the best deals on a new 115, doesn't matter 2 or 4 stroke, out there at the moment?
I can only really go by the net as I don't have time during the day to phone around and few prices are listed.
With the knowledge that the best deals are negotiated face to face with a fistful of cash, who has had the best deal in the recent past that I can approach the same mob with a view to buying?
I would be willing to consider most motors as long as the Two strokes are DI's

What did you get for the money?
I have been trawling around all night tonight sending in requests for prices to all the various dealers, I am going to get some amount of phone calls at work tomorrow and my secretary is going to be really p**ssed off answering them all!

Unless he's got shot of it already, Tony H at QMN knows where there's a good Suzi 115, only 103 hours, nicely run in, much loved, never abused, and I know were the engine read out is.

And the paint chips weren't (all) my fault...

They were offering good deals on Mercury 150 Optimaxes at the Earls Court Boat Show, think about 6500.

paid 5,000 for an exdemo Etec 115 with 10 hours on the clock. The rigging was not good however I would have rather done it myself but apparently BRP do not let this happen any more.

Outboards Direct in Brighton did me an excellent deal over the phone on a new Yamaha 115 4 stroke just before christmas. Very helpful and knowlegeable staff too.

Don't know about prices on bigger engines but I also got an excellent price from OD on my aux, much cheaper than anywhere else. Charles Oakley is a really good bloke to deal with once you understand that you need to pick up the phone because emails and faxes mostly go unanswered due to the volume of enquiries!

Outboards direct are just about the dearest place to have gave me a price. I am somewhat disapointed with the prices I am getting as I was hoping that with cash waving around some places would be happy to cut a deal at this time of year.
PDI is also an issue as Mariner and mercury dealers are not local enough to me to get it done for warranty, but if the motor was cheap enough I am sure it would be sorted somehow.
Mobile marine has still to return my call but if they would do something at the prices mentioned here I would take it in a flash!
