What's this about a brochure discount?

And as a side note, does anyone know the ground clearance of the 5 door? Can't find it anywhere...
Sam's Club should warrant you a invoice discount plus incentives. If you go on www.fordvehicles.com and request a brochure sometimes they will include an incentive for up to $750 off.

Off of MSRP a fully loaded Titanium should be around $28,000, invoice around $26,200 and $500 rebate.

Is there some technical reason I'm missing for why this cant be activated after the fact? I know the car has GPS already since I can get turn by turn directions through Sync Services. Seems like there would have to be a way to activate the on screen nav after the fact if customers were willing to pay for it. This is just more of a tech question then anything else. I have a 2012 Focus SEL with MyFord Touch and no on screen NAV (I use nav on my iPhone), so it got me wondering. :)
From what I'm told the programming from the factory is setup with or without navigation, it cannot be added after the fact despite the SD card having the maps & information.

Focus (C346N) VIN Number: 1FAHP3F25CL134651

http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...HP3F25CL134651

Order date: 3-16-11
Build date: 4-5-11
Delivery: 4-27-11

Sale price............................................. 20,709.00

Suppes Ford discount(invoice)................ 883.56

Base sale price...................................... 19825.44

State tx. 6%........................................ 1189.53
Docum. fee.......................................... 125.00
Tire tx ................................................. 5.00
Notary fee............................................. 20.00
Online regist. fee ................................... 15.45
Title, transfer, regist., & encum. fee ......... 33.50

Total cash or financed balance ................ 21,213.92


What is your opinion on this deal??

As an aside, I am eligible for the X-plan, have the $750 coupon, $500 financing and have $2K for a deposit.

Any advice as to how to get the price down a little more?? Or is this about it??

Thanks for your time!!

Brian
Are you using X-Plan yet or no? X plan will bring the D & H down to $75 vs. $125 so you can save $50 there. I don't foresee you getting it down much more unless you use truecar.com or any ZAG affiliate which would price the vehicle $250 below invoice.

Will most likely be using the X-plan. Sales guy knows I have it, he just set me up with the projected Suppes Ford invoice numbers I gave while we ordered the car.

It's probably a little late in the game to use truecar.com or ZAG affiliate (never heard of this) since my order is on the lot now. Or is it??

Thanks for the help!!

Well depends on the dealership, since you're already inked up on the vehicle in essence it's a lot of work just to save $250 in price. X-Plan is usually the easiest way and the dealership also gets a small kickback from Ford to sell at invoice.

Thanks for mentioning xplan, I googled it to see what in the world you guys were talking about, and found out that my company is a partner. I just generated my PIN.
