    Greetings. I have a few questions. If a dealer receives six allocations at beginning of January for the first half of year, how would the build order be determined wrt the limited color PCP? IE: PCP is ordered on 5th allocation and rest of orders are NOT PCP, will the PCP more up in order to beat end of January PCP deadline? Or just as long as the ordered PCP falls within the JAN month , then the PCP color will be painted even if it's FEB or MAR....etc... Any opinions or advice is greatly appreciated.

    Well, in Canada dealers don't get any allocations so it's really not an issue for us.

    We'd all love to know how the big FCA production scheduler works...

    So far, order placed last week ,but no Von or Vin. Dealer replied with " maybe 2 weeks 'to know if order went thru. Order has not been kicked back...cross my fingers.

    If this is in the US then the dealer can't place the order unless they have an allocation.
    If the order is actually placed they have a VON immediately.
    If they are telling you that they have placed the order but don't have a VON then I would be highly suspicious...

    Thanks MM. Need to check with order manager. If there's no VON, then I will press them and / or go elsewhere , if it's not too late to order PCP HC.

    You know, I found this local dealer and decided to be on the waitlist. Then around second week of Jan 2016, he gets his allotment for first half of year all at once. Thus, I place this order , but no VON. See above for details. Qn: Wait or seek HC elsewhere?

    Go elsewhere. Even having a VON is no guarantee. I got a VON last week, then they pulled my order to put someone else in front of me, then ended up giving me the spot back again.

    I'd strongly suggest that you look elsewhere. You may want to consider telling the dealer up front that you are going to get on several dealer's waitlist and then actually do that. The first one that gives you a VIN is the winner. If you cancel your spot on the other's wait list so be it. There's not going to be any problems with a dealer selling the car if
    it comes after you cancel your order or spot with them.

    The best bet is to just get on the net and look around. There are cats out there and they can be had with little or no
    wait. Some of them at MSRP!

    Best of luck to you!!!

    I have a PCP with Stripe option and a vin# just got the vin# today placed order on Jan 12 Tuesday. I was told that the PCP final orders on Hell Cats are suspended as FCA has all that were allocated for the final month this month JAN in the system. Small window of time to order Hell Cats in PCP for JAN final orders.

    I got lucky, very lucky as the dealer called me that Tuesday morning and I dropped what I was doing and went and ordered it immediately. He had 2 allocations.

    Good job, Jason. Glad you got yours....sounds as if no longer can one order a PCP HC. Dealers will say anything to make a sale and some delivery empty promises and no cars.
