I respectfully beg to differ with your opinion as stated. Prior to actually being in Boston, I had the same viewpoint.
I visited Boston and the surrounding area last week. I was astounded at the difference in cost of living, rents, house costs, price of steak at local big supermarket, no free services, and gas prices.
First, gas was $1.60 in Boston area, wow! However, try to get "free flat fixed (1 tire), tire rotation & balancing" was $60-$95 at the few tire places I could find. I was told "Nothing is Free in Boston!". I was at dinner with friends and the price of steak came up. Here in ID it is about $4-$5/pound for steak. The one I was eating at friend's home was $19.75/pound! That was the $$ for a medium cut steak! A junky old building apartment 30 miles from Boston was $1200/mo, in Boston it would be $2000/mo. I saw crappy small houses around advertised for the $750K and up range. A condo was over $500K. Cripes, the standard of living there is just out of sight, in my opinion. I don't mention (hah!) not seeing any grass whatsoever in Boston in 2 days, no sun, dirty streets, drivers like maniacs, and so on. I drove at 70mph in a 55mph zone and was being passed like I was chained to a tree.
I visited UralNE and Dimitry. He is very personable and gracious, and has a very nice set of sales/maint. buildings. Dimitry also puts a lot of extras on Ural, or BMWs and Mercedes for that matter, and sells them in his market. UralNE has about 25-30 Urals of different flavors, some with special colors, and equipment. People from all over USA buy from UralNE. While I was there, a GU was being put in a buyers' covered trailer to go to Nevada. Heck, I was there from Idaho!
So, I really can't knock UralNE pricing on their parts or vehicles. Maybe it is more than what you pay in other states, but UralNE has whatever you want and can make nearly any combination that you want, pronto. I may not be able to pay his price, but he has the product. Overall I was very favorably impressed with UralNE, Alpha Cars, and Dimitry.
Time is money, money is time, If you want it NOW, UralNE usually has it, it just costs more.
