Hi,

In the end your value is what’s best because it makes your pricing better, your warranty better, your financing better, your terms better, your product better, your service better.And then there’s the ultimate value-add: you. No other deal will come with you.

or

When I was selling cars, whether I was selling Toyotas, Pontiacs, Renaults, GMCs, or used cars, the deal was rarely the car —the deal was me.
A customer, Warren, once told me, “I can get the same deal down the street for less.”
I replied, “The deal down the street doesn’t come with me, Warren."
From the book "Be Obsessed or Be average"
Does it mean that no other deal would pay your value or something like that?

Thanks in advance.

It means that the author of the book is arrogant and self obsessed.

If a car salesman told me what this jerk said to Warren, I'd walk right out.

Sepmre, the book you're reading has posed some possibly-useful questions but from the excerpts you've posted, it appears to be trash. You might want to find something a little better written to study.

Thank you very much.

Please don't ask us any more questions about stuff you read in this book, Sepmre.

You're wasting your own time and ours.

I'm so sorry. You are right and as I said above I've stoped reading it.
I do thank you for your immense patience.

Note corrections above. There's no need to apologize. It's hard for a learner to distinguish good books from bad, and even bad books can sometimes raise interesting questions. Very advanced students can use examples of bad writing to learn to find flaws in their own writing.

In this case, though, I'm glad you're moving on. :)
