Thanks for the help. Its a shame you are in CO, otherwise I would order from you :)

How long do the orders take? Dealer is telling me 6-8 weeks, but I can't tell if that is just them BSing, or the true time.

Depends if they have allocation or not, we aren't getting any Ford love for orders so it's more like 7-11 weeks but if you do get a build pulled immed. you can see orders as quick as 6-8.

Yes a 300A sedan. Thanks.

Should I be able to negotiate a similar sale price as those buying outright?

It's easier for me to search within a 300 dealer radius so I'm not sure where in PA you are.

There are 0 300A in PA right now, there are a few in Michigan, NJ, NY, VA. Let me know what is closest.

They are all about the same except for Michigan of course. I spend my off time in either Lansdale or Harrisburg.

You'll have to order if it's a hatch, there are no sonic blue's in the entire USA with parking tech pkg.
there will soon be one, and it will be MINE ALL MINE ... bwhahahahahahaha .. I will have a RARE car indeed ... will be worth twice what I paid for it the day I pick it up
















Disclaimer: the above is a poke at those that think that having 1 of (insert random number here) makes a car more valuable ....

Walked in today... the dealer has a SEL hatch w/ 301A on order (it hasn't arrived yet). Said I'll buy it right there and then through X-plan. Already have a pin and the printout.

They want to charge $275 doc fee. I absolutely refuse (and show where it says max is 100). Got insulted.... all the typical BS that gives car salesmen bad rep.. it all came out... Surprised me that they still treat their customers like that.

Walked out... no sale. See ya.

May go to another dealership and order.. don't mind the wait all that much.. not in a hurry to have it...

Did you check the actual sales price? The way we do it is sell the car $424 below X-Plan and by the time you add $499 D & H it's only $75. It's confusing to every single person that comes in but the math works.

Yes, the price checked out against Ford's X-plan website. The site rounds up the number (it was showing 21864 and actual number was 21863 and a few cents). I did not look at actual invoice to see the X-plan price, but it cross-checked with the site so I didn't think it was necessary.

Just curious about your method -- is that actual X-plan or you're avoiding X-plan paperwork by doing it your way.. You still end up wtih same number, obviously... (PS.. apparently the doc fee is not $75 any more..)
