    Hello all,

    I'm still searching for a black (phantom or pitch) A8 Challenger with black leather. I know finding an A8 is tough, but any leads are appreciated ($5K over is probably my limit...anything higher I just wouldn't feel right about).

    Here's my sob story...in late December, I agreed to MSRP, wrote a check for a $5K deposit, and received a VON from Helfman Dodge (Houston, TX)...a couple of months later, the salesperson sent me a VIN. About a month later, the GM called me asking if I would switch to a manual. When I told him I already received a VIN, he told me I received it in error. As it turns out, I called SRT, and the VIN they sent me wasn't mine...and my VON was never picked up.

    I've found black A8's...but the markups are just ridiculous. I've seen $99K, $85K, etc. So, any leads you can provide would certainly be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I know there is an A8, Phantom Black, Challenger with Laguna Black leather and NAV on the showroom floor at Layton Hills Dodge in Layton, UT @ $85K ($20K over MSRP).(Link: New 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat For Sale in Layton UT 2C3CDZC91FH809130

    I know this is still out of your desired range, but I just wanted to pass on any lead that might help. Before I found a lead on a B5 Blue for my old man, he had worked on them for about two weeks. Thinking it might be his only shot at a Cat, he offered them up to $10K over MSRP but they didn't budge. Looking back, we're glad they didn't. The absolute lowest they wanted to come down was $14K over MSRP @ $79K.

    Finding A8 at only 5k over these days is like finding a needle in a haystack.

    Yes, you're probably right...what do you think the "average" ADM on an A8 is right now?

    AndyD, keep the faith brother and have a positive attitude. I picked up my challenger A8 at msrp May 14th on this forum due to the kindness of one of our members. I "can" happen.

    Thank you again Todd Jones!!!!

    Asking a 20k adm doesn't mean they won't accept 5k. Try it. A week from now call again. 2 weeks call again. Maybe call 2x a week
    You found one. Now make a deal

    Unfortunately I've been seeing 15-20k over and higher! Just wait it out if you will not grab a manual. I jumped on the m6 train! Can't wait to get mine in and at MSRP.

    Pretty much all of those cars posted are customer sold.
