    So I am going to buy a 2016 Challenger HC (assuming Orange is offered). I am in Colorado. What is the best way to order one? Do I go down the first day possible to order one, or do it online?

    Thanks for the help!

    Do it in person with a dealer you trust and has a good chance at an early allocation. You are smart to do the research and dealer vetting now. Remember that ordering opens on 8/25...thats the plan now. Find out what time the order banks open. If they open at 9am EDT, that would be 7am in COLO. Perhaps your dealer will open early for you so as not get behind all the folks on the east coast. My dealer will make the arrangements to accommodate those on the west coast. Find a dealer with a short list. If you can be first and have all ordering option ready to go, that will be helpful. Deal with the fleet mgr , gen mgr or owner. Do Not mess around with the avg lot salesperson. What other strategies are you considering?

    Recommend that your dealer provide you immediately with a print out of the POC (Purchase Order Confirmation) at the time of submission. On the POC have the dealer confirm in handwriting the sales terms i.e. MSRP, ADM amount if any, Deposit, etc. and have him sign it in order to minimize the chance that they pull a fast one on you four months down the line when the car is delivered. Paper is not a guarantee and may/may not be enforceable in court however it should help your position in the future if there are dealer shenanigans.

    I sent you a PM with some dealers I have dealt with in the past and I believe are stand up and good people.

    Welcome to the forums!

    You need to interview dealers n find out where they rank nationally in saLES to best determin if they will even get an allocation

    i wouldnt order one.....better off to search once they come out, make your deal over the phone and drive/fly out to get it.....ordering works for some, but also doesnt for many......and if your new car you waited 8 months for shows up and is damaged or has bad paint then what do you do?

    if you decide to order one......go ahead....but also look on your own and cancel the order if you find one....tons of people on this forum never got their VIN and never tried to find one...they just sat and then are surprised they didnt get their car.......ive ordered before......never again.....id rather just find one in stock

    I also live in CO and ended up doing it online. Couldn't find a dealer in the state that was acting reasonable about price. I went with Sam Leman in IL, had it shipped out. Great experience.
