The word is that Desert European has a short list for those paying a markup on their cars and a long list of those paying msrp which will be allocated after the short list.Vantage said:What does that mean? On an informal list at European?
Every dealer I talked to said they move on to the next person on the list. I wouldn't get on a list where they plan on auctioning off the skipped over spots, seems like a bad sign.amcmahon said:based on what every dealer has told me this could screw over those who are further back on the list somewhat. Every dealer I talked to said if someone drops out they don't bump up the remaining list. Instead they keep that spot as a dealer car and sell it at market value which is between 7.5-10k over msrp.
It seems like most dealerships aren't being totally upfront with me. Like I said, if the order is already placed then I can understand them selling it as a dealer car. Less hassle then searching the list for a buyer with the same options. But if no order was placed then it should be bumped.Evl said:Every dealer I talked to said they move on to the next person on the list.
