If you want more options, wait. If you need a car for cheap, get the SFE. You could just get the 2012 SE covers and call it a day.

At least you get a spoiler and rear discs.

Yeah, I wanted something basic and cheap. I don't care for touch screens, I prefer buttons.

Mine is the 203A package and Sport package. Glad i just forked out the extra instead of trying to figure out how to upgrade to get to that level

Look, in your other thread, you asked "Sedan or HB?" It's actually a good question. In this one, you say you are settling for what they have, not necessarily getting what you want. Not so good.

If waiting 10 days costs $1000 more, but you get what you really want, that is money well spent. Also, I'm certain there is more then one Ford dealer in your part of Texas. Be prepared to walk away and have another dealer earn that $1K. Play them against one another. Make the dealer you eventually take delivery from earn your business!!

It appears that you do not want to wait and order your car. Fine. You may have to be flexible on color, but never settle for what a particular dealer has on his lot. It's January, they all have cars right now.

I've shopped with 5 different dealers within 300 miles radius. They have the best pricing, nobody could match it.

Well , actually they had the HB SE but I eliminated it. I only dislike the wheels of SFE, other than that I'm not looking for any luxury options...just the wheels. I will drive this vehicle 80 miles a day/5 days+ weekend.

Yeah, I totally shouldn't have gone for the higher series model SEL 300A with all the equipment of the SE 203A with the addition of the dual zone automatic climate control.

Because this is just another boring ecobox..... NOT!

I ordered what I wanted and didn't settle for less, why should you unless you're too cheap and decide to take whatever they don't want to own anymore.

Oh and in case you didn't know the SFE isn't a special model, its just an option package on the base G SE, so its the same car.
