"The pay plan I like for this exact situation is the 10&10 $10,000 base and 10% of dealer net profit.  Demo for Gm and spouse.  There are so many variables, but this is a good plan that dosen't have buy-in or extras. "

What are some options to ensure a 60 day turn?

There is one used car mgr. & two sales mgrs. The u.c.m. is in control of aquisition and w/s, but it's being suggested that all 3 mgrs. participate in a +60 day penalty. I have been charged with drafting a plan. Thanks in advance for the input.
