    With all the "ordered" threads. How many of you bought one out of inventory off the lot?

    i put 10k down Aug4th 2014, order went in Sept 9th and i was guaranteed they had an allocation.. after third set of allocations at 127 days I still only a VON.. i stopped believing the lies and found one sitting on a lot 150 miles away and a few blocks from where i grew up in Philadelphia.

    i drove my new hellcat over to get my 10k back :D

    I'm an order out 5 months wait

    BUT my buddy got a B5 Blue Challenger M6 satin black hood laguna leather beast right off the lot. They gave him big trade in allowance for his old Challenger and sold it a 100 bucks off MSRP. Was a huge win for him. The dealer by the way was his local dealer minutes from his home.

    I would buy off the lot if I could find one without an ADM, but it's impossible.

    We bought ours right out of the showroom in early March, at MSRP.

    Deposit early August. It became plainly obvious by the end of December that I would never have gotten my Cat from that dealer. By the end of January I found one on the lot at MSRP in the spec I wanted.

    I did both. Ordered one at MSRP in December, then found one on the lot January 3rd. Fortunately the first dealer let me off the hook and gave my deposit back.

    Same story here as you'll find lots of places...

    Ordered Charger HC on 12 Jan 2015 with immediate VON issued. Sat on that waiting for allocation from the folks at FCA. It never showed up and even with regional sale help it never made it out of VON HELL. Started hard searching and found new listing for dealer stock vehicle near the end of June with a due date the 1st week of July. Put down deposit, booked flight and haven't looked back since.

    Lost out on USAA incentive ($1k) and had added expenses of travel to GA from VA. But I do have my HC and an FCA voucher. So glad I'm not in the MY16 mess.

    i placed an order on DAY 1 2014 with Bob. My 2015 order was cacelled by Dodge, In July or August, Bob advised that Dodge would not allocate enough cars to him and he refunded my deposit. so in August i found a post on here refering to car gurus,com I went there and found lots of cars for sale. Phoned a few dealers and found one with additional options to what i had originally ordered for MSRP, so I bought it while it was being shipped from the factory to the dealer. Two weeks later i trailered it home and it currently has 180 miles on the first half tank of gas.. I feel i got lucky.

    Didn't order, didn't deposit. Searched Autotrader, made a call to check availability of the unit, pulled the trigger with a significantly reduced ADM...it was January.

    I had a order in for a 2015 and it did not get fullfilled. Got a coupon for a 2016, had an order with another dealer. That dealer had 6 allocations, but only 4 A8s all year. 5 guys in front of me all wanted A8s. Bought an A8 sublime hellcat off a lot a few weeks ago. Had to pay 5k ADM.

    I had been searching for a Challenger or Charger since March, wasn't willing to wait for one to be built. One popped up on AutoTrader 30 miles from me, some how it was still available and i got my ass down there and bought it at MSRP. I was pretty happy considering the only other to Chally Hellcats for sale in my state are $13k over sticker. If i ordered a car from the factory it is exactly what i would have done.
