only if you are getting something that the AD is not bringing in, otherwise, stay with the AD. but of course, when you are ready to purchase from PI, make sure everything is black&white. do not take words from the sales person.

Absolutely right! Lots of empty promises, and also the advertised price and what you've discussed is way too much of a difference. You really need to know someone from the PI, in order to get a good deal! Remember to discuss all the possible stuffs, and note it down in black and white, eg. model of rims, audio systems, reverse sensor, and etc. I heard of stories that even the fabric car seats material also different. haha. No way to make sure 100% safe
