I also want to thank you for the referral over to the open allocation for the April delivery. Thanks man.
You bet.
Just trying to help fellow enthusiasts/board members out. I know how it feels to be searching.

If the car is indeed the hot item we all think it is, you simply wait, get it delivered and then sell it to a dealer at MSRP or more in a region who can mark it up with no problem...Again, I wouldn't focus on this if it weren't for the fact that we saw too many 112 allocations posted here by dealers. The mere fact that you called a dealer and landed on the spot you landed at this stage during the launch--ignoring the discount--is a red flag. Anyway, we'll see how it plays out.

I have been worrying over making sure my color selections are correct and I have all the options I want.

That being said, I am going to have the cleanest bumpers! No ZCP and no PDC.

The only problem selling a car back to the dealer or anyone, for that matter, is NYS sales tax. You have to overcome $5,600 in sales tax on a $70,000 car here.

I thought dealer-to-dealer transactions for new cars that have not been sold to a customer were not subject to this?

There not. I must have misunderstood your post. I thought you meant take delivery, when you typed "get it delivered", then sell it to another dealer.

speaking of OCD, here is mine...pretty sure that there isn't a ZCP. Cold weather package is ZCW and premium package is ZPP. maybe you mixed the two...i know its a small detail, but my OCD won't let it go!

cool choices epacy, i'm anxious to see more IB with silver pics. also agree with you on clean bumpers!

my OCD is to have the totally clean bumpers. i hate the PDC dots and the headlight washers.

i have been told by my dealer that even though front plates are required in my state that they would not drill mine.
