Just got off the phone with my sales rep at The Collection in Miami, FL...ordered the car last Nov...am #18 on the list last I was told...have been given a Nov build date with delivery around Jan/Feb

Hopefully your car does not take that long to get to your dealer (possibly over two months). Good news is that your dealer is not being overly optimistic just to please you.

Is Lotus still having domestic transport issues? Seems like it.

I just looked at my build sticker on the car, August build and I received the car a week ago, so the wait isn't that long!

Does it say when in August? We were thinking build, 4 weeks shipping, 2 weeks for whatever.

hey madguppy:

I put in my deposit in October and p my order about 2 weeks ago at The Collection and last I was told I was # 24. Saels man told me to expect car in Dec/Jan. I hope some of this info is correct because the suspense is killing me.

Interesting, when I was looking around for dealers I talked to the Collection and was also going to be that #18 spot.

I ended up going with Palm Beach Motor cars because the Collection insulted me with their $500 dealer fee. That is really pushing it.

I hope I get my car before you. =)

Congrats!

I'm 40 something at the collection(ordered 2 weeks ago), so I'll probably never get my car. Who the hell tried to charge a $500 fee?! Was that when it was still being controlled by the Ferrari guys?

Give them a call, you also have that fee.

It's called a dealer fee or something along those lines.

Giovani told me msrp and no fees. I don't know if I trust what's going on there though, I guess I'll find out if a car ever shows up.

at this point...I could care less about another 500...just gimme the damn car. But anyway...when I placed my depost with Rubens Taberly in Nov of last year he didnt mention anything other than msrp. They juggled some things over there and I now have Mike as my sales rep. Still no mention of the dealer fee...but I havent had a chance to ask directly...and if there is, it will help me decide on the starshield. I'll just look at it like they saved me $500.

Im so dying for this car, I haven't even gone to see one in person cuz I know it'll make the wait that much harder. Maybe a few weeks b4 it gets here :)

Was just told a mid-November build date! Yahoo.

It seems like Palm Beach Motor Cars has a large allotment.

I won in with the dealer roulette. =)

That rocks! It seems like they have the best allotment in Florida.

Ryan told me that they got three in yesterday, seemed very busy.

Hopefully it won't get nailed with Jeanne, I have a feeling they have no idea what is going to happen with that one.

Maybe getting a later delivery was a mixed blessing.

What did I miss here? Why do you think this?
think i read something online about november cars being first built by new shift of hires
from my understanding, the more potential problems your lotus has, the better its considered to be

It looks like the thing is going to go north and then just sit there for a while.
