You're better off working with the dealership in each respective location. If you work with your local dealer they have to get shipping there and back so it's $1,800. If you buy from the source it's only 1 way. Only other way is to order one.

Ahh yeah- I would rather not have to pay $900+ to ship to me from an out of state dealer (And then have to deal with that as well) I may as well go Titanium by that point. I wasn't sure if they did exchanges that far away without extra costs. It looks like I'm stuck waiting to see if one shows up closer to me that I could pick up. I want to get the car by July 31st so I can get the $750 off.

Is there an easier way to search for local cars? Or just by zip code and then it only gives you the 5 closest places instead of where all SEL's are.

I don't know of an easier way, even my search method only starts in my region and goes out from there. Those are the only 300A, there could be 301, 202, 303 but I didn't look.

Thanks- yeah 300A is what I am looking for. I'll just keep checking day by day I guess.

I've decided I'd rather pay the extra $500 for the titanium on my Focus order. The order was submitted last week, but I haven't seen a VIN or anything else.
I would say if you don't have a VIN you can change.

I've done this on F-150 forums and it's very helpful for them.

Here's what I can help out on. Please read all of this before you ask a question so we aren't asking the same question 40 times!

1. Need to find a specific new vehicle and your local dealer not helping? Just give me your zip code and what you're looking for and I'll try and find one close and let you know how the invoice pricing breaksdown.

2. Incentive information. All I need is your zip code and last name and I can check if you qualify for any private offers such as brochure $750 offers or anything else. Also if you're college grad. and have other offers I'll let you know what you can combine and what you can't.

3. I cannot tell you why Ford is not giving specific options that you want or when such and such option will be available unless I see it on Ford's dealer site.

4. I unfortunately do not have a crystal ball to tell you what incentives will change to.

5. Also if you ordered a vehicle through your dealership I cannot tell you when it will be there and track it. Only your dealership or the shipping dept can do that.

Lastly I am in internet sales so I generally know what dealerships are capable of selling vehicles for, so if you are wondering if there is money being left on the table let me know.
Do you have access to feature content and the content that is available in option packages.

Or are the features listed in your information only number coded.

Thanks- my next move may be the base Titanium- but I really have no interest in dealing with MFT and like the supposed smoother ride of the smaller tires and non sports suspension. So really hoping I can find the SEL. Plus I'd rather save the money.
