    I found a dealer 200 miles away that has the exact color and options I want but they are one of the few left who won't go to MSRP. Just trying to figure out if there is a way to find out how long they've been sitting on it.

    You could probably ask "Resume Speed" if you have the VIN #. He can see shipping dates and I believe delivery dates.

    Try searching on car gurus, they generally state how long the dealer has had the vehicle.

    If you don't mind making the trip you could look at the "build date" inside of the driver's side door and figure that they probably got it 2-4 weeks after that date. My guess is that they were trying to sell it prior to actually receiving it which would also stack up some time that they have "had" it.

    Save yourself the trip and ask for a photo of the decal... I would think they'll go out of their way to do this for you since they're asking MSRP+

    I realize that the closer you are to the car the more convenient but why give business to a dealer that gouges?

    Find another car. They are out there. As soon as a dealer tells me they wanted ADM we are done talking. Out of principle I don't negotiate with them and I don't ever buy a car from them in the future. There are enough dealers out there that are fair from the start and MSRP for a Hellcat is fair given it's a high demand car (less so now than a year ago).
