    Been trying to order a PCP A8 2016 to no avail. If anybody knows of a dealer with an allocation available in the Md/Pa/Va/De/NJ area, please help!

    Give up on the mid-atlantic area. Go to dodge.com, get the list of dealers in a 200+ mile radius of Minneapolis Minnesota, and start calling each one. I found a dealer out there who had ordered a PCP A8 for inventory and turned it into a sold order with my name on it. They could even make changes to the options for me since the car isn't scheduled for build for a few weeks. Don't just ask if you can order a car, ask if they have an inventory order in place that you can change to a sold order in your color. Make sure they have a VON if they tell you they have one. It only took 72 phone calls to find the right dealer. On the good news side of things, the next allocation ordering window should be around November 10 or 12, so you are in a good time of the cycle to start calling. Be prepared to put down a $1000 deposit right away (no more than that). And DON'T pay over MSRP. Good luck and happy hunting.

    Good deal. Dealer in Chicago is charging 5k over MSRP. Glad you found your car.

    I'm number 1 on a couple of local dealer's lists too, and none of them has been able to place an order thus far. I'm expanding my search, trying not to go more than a few hundred miles from local if possible, but will do whatever it takes in the end I guess. Not getting one is unthinkable! :)

    Update - a few minutes ago, I noticed a missed call and voice mail on my phone, and it was from my local dealer who has been trying to get an order in for me since late August. His message was: Give us a call asap - we have fantastic news on your Hellcat order" :)

    I'll post the final word tomorrow, but this can only mean they've got an allocation and my order is going in. PCP A8 Challenger....

    Confirmed! My order is in! MSRP, PCP, A8, no sunroof, no satin hood, brown leather... :D My dealer is fairly small but they sell a LOT of trucks, though not many SRT products. This is the first of three allocations they are supposed to get for the year. Now it's just a matter of waiting and constantly checking for updates.... LOL!

    Some good news! Glad you returned that call.

    Good luck with the build and delivery.

    Might just be a very Merry Christmas!

    When you get your VIN, post with RS (resumespeed) and he can get you info on build schedule and progress

    Will do! Guess I'm pretty lucky - I live way out in the sticks, and the dealer which is only 8 miles away from me is also way out in farm country. They've been in business since the `60's though, mostly selling trucks. They just finally delivered the one Hellcat they sold last year (a Charger) a couple of months ago. My family has been doing business there since the `70's though so they did go out of their way to take care of me. They're going to do only mechanical dealer prep plus wash and vacuum. All the stickers, seat covers, etc. will be left for me to remove at my request.

    I'm pretty pumped! :D
