Anyone would be stupid to do that. If the dealers in your area are pricks, search other areas. My dealer never charged above MSRP, even on the Z8.

No, you can learn. Just get the whole list of 300+ dealers and send an email to every one of them within whatever radius you choose. There are many that would be happy to put you well up on their short list for MSRP.

Start with my CA in Portland: scottb@rasmussenbmw.com - tell him I sent you. I was #9 27 months ago and moved to #1 in December. Not sure of the current list.

You can always do a courtesy delivery to one of your local dealers for a small fee, even if you buy out of the area.

Just call around. I got a dealer to give me a spot in the first allocation if I wanted. All I had to do was put 1000 down and she said I would have it at msrp.

Yikes, I was thinking of ordering there - do you have any idea yet how many they'll get / mth? Looks like if I want one mid-09 I'm looking at ordering mid-08.

I note the other posters' suggestions re apporaching other dealers (in less well-heeled & techno-geek areas), as I want to do PCD it's not an issue to order somewhere else.

No dealer knows their future allocations at this point.

Contact Neil @ Newbold, 618 628 7300. He's in IL but he can get you a car VERY quickly and they have amazing service. In fact, my car through them is already built and shipped.

same as mine, but if someone walks in saying they are willing to pay +10-20K for a car i wonder if our dealers are going to turn them away.

Even when you order? I thought the markup only at dealer's inventories. I wouldn't pay markup on order?

If I pull the trigger it will be at MSRP only as that is what my small refundable deposit agreement stated. Your poll results should be kept in perspective as most here will not pay over sticker but many will.
