Re: DC metro area group buy

Hello all,
I have been lurking on the forum for a while and have finally decided to participate! This will be my first Jeep (and the first time I've ever bought myself a new car). If you'd like to add me to your list, I plan to order the following from Koons:

Limited 4X4, CRD, Advanced Tech, Luxury II, ORA II, RA4. Still thinking about the color.

My girlfriend and I live in Orlando but have decided it would make for a fun vacation to drive the new Jeep home and visit friends along the way. THANK YOU very much for taking the time to put this deal together. The local dealerships I've contacted in Orlando "...weren't sure if the CRD would be available in 2014 but should be available in the 2015 MY".
Thanks again!
Phil

Looks like Koons has a ton of Limited and Overlands in stock.. Get out there and check them out. Maybe they have the exact options you want and you can have your truck this weekend!

I am in Jacksonville, FL and am in the same situation. I emailed pretty much every dealer in Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa areas and of the few that even responded the best offer I got is 2.5% off. I am moving to NY late in the summer and all the dealers pretty much said they didn't even want to entertain a counter offer when I asked them to match the 4% off some people on this forum were getting. I think 7% off is an amazing deal that will be hard to impossible to beat.
I am looking into ordering before I move to pay FL sales tax which is 2.5% lower than in NY. I was kind of leery of driving a brand new car on a long highway drive and found the Amtrak autotrain which leaves from somewhere in the DC area and ends in Sanford, FL. The cost for the autotrain for the car + 2 people is about $350. It would probably be the same price as having the dealership ship the car, but I like to lay eyes on a new car before taking delivery.
Do you know anything about the particulars of buying a car in VA and then registering it in FL?

It's funny you mention the Auto Train. I'm actually in Sanford, FL where the Auto Train terminates and the stop is just a few miles from my house. The travel time from VA to FL is over 17 hours via train so I think we are just going to drive instead.

Don't have any information on buying in VA and registering in FL but I plan to research the issue in the coming days. Let me know if you figure anything out.

Yep. It showed on the screen but it still wasn't orderable. They are going to put it in on Tuesday when it's supposed to be open.

I'm planning to do the same next Thursday. Did they confirm pricing for the CRD. Do you have a signed contract with pricing?

Re: DC metro area group buy

Looks great gwnewman! What color did you get?

BTW, what's the difference between an Overland and a fully loaded Limited? I'm going back and and forth between the two.

No confirmed pricing or contract. He said he will email me as soon as its open to confirm the pricing breakdown and then place the order if everything looks good

Re: DC metro area group buy

First post, but I've been watching this group buy for awhile now. Prices seem really hard to beat, and I might want in. Are you guys getting a confirmed OTD price quote before ordering? I'm looking to order a white, blk int, V8, Lux II & tow package soon.
Thanks!

Mine is Max Steel. The Overland has options you can't get in a limited and different interiors.

One more picture. It was a mess when I got home
