Park Place only has 50? I talked to them back in May and the guy said I would be #61. I thought by now they'd be full - maybe I'll rethink passing over the first model year.

I don't know how current all of the list is.

They show Palm Beach only having 6 cars, but I was told by the salesman that I'll be around number 30.

I'll find out the exact number today.

I called Jim Michal at AutoEurope today and he said that if I came in today that my friend and I would be #33 and #34 (We want to accept delivery simultaneously). When I got there he told me that he had gotten one more deposit since I had called (It is a 1.5 hr. drive), but that that person would be #35 because he had promised #33 and #34 to us. So, for those of you keeping track AutoEurope in MI has 35 deposits as of 10/29/03. They tell me that they expect 50 cars.

We still have many dealers with no number whatsoever. Boardwalk, Matheny, Prestige, JN, Lotus Motorsports, Carolina, Classic, San Antonio. I also think Midwestern is way off. I would bet it really is over 1,500.

Talked to Boardwalk, they've got about 25 deposit down. At this point they figure that's there first years allotment and currently aren't taking any more deposit, BTW there pricing them at $49k. :rolleyes:

Ouch! I got guaranteed MSRP with a fully refundable deposit and Auto Europe's documentation fee is only $160. I think they're a good dealership. They had a couple of 7's, a new Esprit, and a brand new Morgan in the showroom while I was there too. The Morgan was just a really cool car.

Adendum:
I forgot to say that I got to sit in a 120HP Elise that the owner had brought in a few years ago that he had had it 'legalized.' I'm told that he got six or seven of them and sold them all for mid $65k's and just kept the one. He drives it on the street.

Paul when did you put your deposit down and what is your number? What is the documentation fee? I am glad to see you think they are a good dealer. I live in Ohio and put mine with them also, last January. I just need to work out the purchase between the two states with sales and licences and such.

I'm the guy that just posted. We put our deposits down today and got numbers 33 and 34 (and he already had 35's money), but I've been talking to Jim Michal there for a couple of weeks ironing out the details to make sure that everything was on the up and up. He told me that their standard documentation fee is $160, and assured me that we'd get the cars for MSRP plus $160, plus tax, title, and license. You should just have to pay for the car, the $160, and a small licensing fee (for the temp tag) and then you take the paperwork to OH and pay taxes, title, and license there. At least I believe that that is the procedure. Have you visited their showroom? A really neat place and very friendly people. Where in OH are you located? I'm going to be looking for people to compare laptimes with when I get mine...

Oh that was me, I hit the lotto and ordered another 47 cars so I could have one for each of our contiguous states:p

But back to reality... That's great, the more preorders they get hopefully the folks at Hethel will deal out the cars quicker to them.:D

MAG in Ohio has at least 20 deposits. Unfortunately they want something like $3K non-refundable, but at least they're committing to MSRP if you do.

I'm on the list at Autostrada here in TX. Great guys there. Hopefully I'll be ordering mine for next fall/winter.
