Challenger Hellcat inbound to Fair Oaks Dodge in VA. MSRP + tax/title/$589 doc fee. Grab it quick, just got done communicating with them but we have decided to go another direction. Car is slated to be in on the 18th but the weather will probably delay that. Here is your chance someone!!

Sublime
A8
Laguna
Nav
Summer tires.

Call Hoyt Sabo, 703-961-9900, can tell him you just heard this from RJ

No need to call Hoyt folks. I just bought this car.... Paperwork in progress

Thanks RJ. It's ironic for two reasons... First, I originally wanted Sublime but felt it was too flashy. Second, today is my birthday...
Happy birthday, so glad I could help. I started this Saturday when looking over incoming Dodge vehicles in the area but after getting final numbers with him today we decided we just didn't want Sublime, plus we didn't want the extra cost of Laguna and their fees. We'll wait it out.

RJ... I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I've got a Jazz Blue on order (see my sig). I only ordered about five or so weeks ago. I don't mind waiting for a car but I just don't have high confidence the car will ever come through at this point.

I've called dozens and dozens of dealers inquiring on available cars. Spoke with a few gentlemen/women and a lot of people that quite frankly amaze me (in a bad way). Cars are either sold or have ridiculous ADM which I'm not willing to pay (and I the people I've spoken with are holding out which I don't like but I understand).

My number one must have option was the A8..... The other options all depend on the car. There are several colors I really like. I love the retro of Sublime but thought it was too flashy for me. I like to stay under the radar. Obviously I'm over that! I also didn't order the Laguna seats (they do nothing for me but I"m OK with having them). I would actually prefer the All Season tires (I'm in the northeast) but again, I'm OK with the summer tires.

Hoyt was a gentlemen and I'm looking forward to doing the deal with him. He seems easy to work with and I'm the same way.

Thanks again. How about if I get you some Hellcat swag as a token of my appreciation? Is their a shirt, hat or something else Hellcat that you want?
Thanks for the offer but just enjoy the car and I hope the deal closes out OK for you. Return the same type of favor to someone else in life some day in whatever they may want! All my communication was through email but Hoyt seemed like a straight shooter. I was surprised when he replied with MSRP being OK. In the long run though we really like B5 and the dealership we deal with so we'll take the risk of getting the order filled. I know the chance of finding one on a lot will be rare. Have fun & be safe.

Agree doc fees are fairly high if you ask me, but I would have paid it.
Between the Laguna I couldn't care less about, their high doc fees, and a couple other stupid taxes between VA and/or MD the car was going to be nearly $3000 more than what I have ordered. Throw that into it not be the color the wife and I both really want I dropped out once the final prices were broken down to me. I did let Hoyt know this though, and also let him know I was going to tell others and I could almost assure him he'll sell the car by night's end! So I held both ends of a bargain!

Have to ask one thing though here: I have 4 folks ahead of me at my dealer we do a solid amount of business with and has always come through in the past but this may simply be a numbers game this time. I know there are not many B5's out there yet, and may not be many period for this year, but I'd be much obliged if anyone finds one or comes across one for MSRP that they can pass along ;) . Main requirements are A8 and black wheels and eastern U.S.A. My wife and I's jobs, and more so our young children, don't allow the luxury to spend a couple days going to get it.

Dr Buick said he is selling his first production B5 for cost + sales tax he paid
I saw that, but I'm not paying cost + tax on a used car ;) Vehicles are bad enough "investments" to begin with, I'm not going to compound it by paying over on a used vehicle.

Awesome CAT match making RJ - hope you get your B5 from Cook soon !!

SRT - Enjoy that B-Day present and drive carefully (and enjoy the Argentina BBQ if you stop to visit)
Don't have mine from Cook, mines from David Dodge in Glen Mills PA where we get all ours.

My bad - thought you were a Cook customer. Regardless - hope it comes soon for you. So was the Owings Mill B5 car a no-go due to brass monkeys or $ ??
Because it was a Charger
