You do have the $750 however you cannot combine it with the Z Plan price.

This is what it looks like:

Thank you.
For the leather seats in the luxury package, I believe you have the option of charcoal black or medium light stone. You can also get the arctic white/black leather combo if you get the style interior trend package.

As for price, I just ordered an SEL Hatch, also in Edmonton. Employee pricing brought down the price to just under invoice, then the delivery allowance basically cancelled out the GST. My dealer (Koch) then pretty much waived all the fees so my final out the door was $100 below invoice. So there's a benchmark for what you could reasonably expect to pay today; I'm not sure how much better you could do by waiting until February.

Do end of the month deals really exist or is that just a fallacy? I can't find an SEL but seems like dealers have Titanium's in stock due to the poor reviews of the MFT. I'm going thru Xplan but could I possibly get a good deal on a Titanium if I tell them I am willing to take it off their lot before the 1st instead of asking them to order me an SEL and I wait?

Depends on size of the dealership, if they are constantly trying to achieve 1 in their region they might discount it but it's tough to say. Our incentives end July 5th so really any deal between now and then you'll be okay.

Shipping time

Just ordered a hatchback, Sterling Grey (wish it was Kona) SEL 303A, med-light stone interior. Left a $500 deposit.

Invoice is quoted at 22884 and they're charging $200 over invoice. They said it's cheaper to order than to grab one off the lot. Time to delivery is 8-12 weeks.

I'm in zip code 98052, no special student or military background.

Two questions:
  1. Did I leave any money on the table? Coupons, specials, etc? Seems like they offered a decent deal (cheaper than my X-plan)
  2. Is 8-12 weeks normal? Is there any way to shorten this time? I'm without a car until they deliver, which is a bit of a hassle.

Well you can still try for a brochure until it shows up, so not really having to worry about the deal being done yet. Seems like a good deal as I can't find a 303a under $23,000 here in my region.

There really is no way to shorten it, Jeff has his vehicle shipped out after ordering June 1st so we're looking about 6-7 weeks as the quickest I've seen a Focus built.

I'm not sure what you mean by "try for a brochure until it shows up". Do you mean I could keep looking for the same car at other dealerships until mine arrives?

EDIT: Just read above--so if I order a brochure by mail, there's a chance it may contain a coupon. I'll have to try that.

Also, just saw the invoice--it looks like my order is a priority 19.
