Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

I would not say that he knowingly meant to say no CRDs then.

I was just reaching out to see if they could put a better overall deal together for me and the read I came back with was not likely. I don't want to waste his or my time then, he can spend it ordering your jeeps.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

I guess my best opinion would be to put your order in with the dealer on Tuesday if you really want the CRD. Seems now production has been pushed back to April 22nd but can still order March 5th. I have not gotten confirmation from him yet on the closing of the sale but this does happen from dealers.

The deposit is $1000.

If you have any questions, let me know

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

Crap!!! April 22nd now, just last week they pushed it up to March 18 from the 25th.

I'm betting the CRD will not be available to order next week then, more likely April allocation. Is what it is.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

Randy got back to me this morning and said he will keep me updated for when the CRD opens up and knows I can't do anything until then. He does not think it will be in there next week either.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

I have been in contact with Randy this morning with a few emails. We will have to see what Tuesday brings if the Lux II and the CRD package becomes available to order. If they do, we will have a very short window to order from what I gather.

Edit: I did just send him another email to find out what will happen if the CRD or Lux II doesn't come available on March 5th for ordering. I will let everyone know when I hear back.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

Side note: I heard back from some other dealers (including Mancari), most of them will do 3% under invoice. The guy at Mancari will do 1% if you don't have AP and 3% if you do.

I am still waiting to hear from one of the other dealers on pricing.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

Gentleman... Please do not send anymore emails to the dealer until the options become available to order. He just sent me an email saying he is almost ready to cancel the whole thing cuz he doesn't have time to answer all the emails everyday from everyone.

I apologize for this.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

Ok Gentlemen.. I talked to one of the other dealers who is more than happy to help us with the buying. He has offered $1850 off Invoice with $299 for dealer fees.

As I now know, Randy is very frustrated with all our inquiries and is ready to cancel the whole deal. He asked that I delete the post with his information so no more people contact him. I believe those that have are ok. He also ask that we don't contact him until the CRD or Lux II are available to order.

I guess at this point of this situation, what would you guys like to do? You guys can either PM me, email me or call me.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

As much as I understand his frustration I also find problems with it. He made the offer. He wanted to be the contact person for this deal. How are we, the interested consumer, supposed to find out if this pkg or that option is available or not except by contacting the dealership? It was a management decision and he should have delegated a sales person to deal with our group inquiries.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

Oh I completely understand your thought on that an I even asked him that the other day. I think if he has your information and knows what you want, he will contact you when it is available.

That is another reason I got in contact with the other dealer to see if he will still give us the deal from the very beginning.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

If I could give the other dealer a "SOLID" or "SOLD" number of jeeps to see if he would come down more I would, but almost everyone I have gotten inquiries from don't response back to say if they are truly solid.

Re: Chicago Area Group Buy

As mentioned, I only briefly corresponded with him twice and since I want to order the diesel, I just told him I'd contact him again when the order banks open.

No issues on my end in honoring his request. I'm sure he's getting overwhelmed with emails, but I agree he should delegate responsibility to someone if he can't handle it.

Finally, I'm willing to be part of a group buy for any deal we can work out that will be >3% under invoice. As a group, it makes sense to have one of our own as the point man and as such I'm putting my faith in Sno to lead the deal(s)...
