Re: DC metro area group buy

Well, we certainly met the expectation as far as number of people in the group buy. However, I'm not sure we should let one "impatient" individual cause us to overreact. I'm sure that the sales folk we are dealing with are not entirely unused to dealing with the occasional "difficult" customer.

Wish I could agree. Tell that to the dealer in the original Chicago group buy. We only know of one.

It's not the "one" impatient one I think folks are worried about...it's winding up with more than one.

Still can't PM.

bobbydigital302-- thank you for your patience and please excuse the tardiness in responding. I do my best to catch up on the posts and intended to pass on the info requested but forgot it was in the thread -- it's easier for me to get the PM, though I understand at the time you couldn't send one.

Chivvalry, thanks for passing on the info.

For those looking to get in on the group buy, post a few notes on this thread or the welcome page...something like POST 1 "Hello"; POST 2 "I'm new here"; POST 3 "Hopefully now I can send PMs". Then send me a PM with your email addy and I'll connect you w/ the folks we're working with.

I hope we maintain a significant level of interest in the gb -- while somewhere down the road a better deal might be had, for the moment I am comfortable with this component of the negotiation, and our effort to have a little faith in the group is paying off (gwnewman1 and doofoo can brag as our first success stories). Through Jeep Garage and WK2Jeeps, we've been given access to information well in advance of anybody else. They have given us the opportunity to become better informed consumers. While it's not quite Spiderman's "w/ great power comes great responsibility", the info we've all had well before the dealers has boiled down to "w/ copious amounts of information comes the need to be patient while everybody else catches up." The most tangible benefit will be the 7% you save on your truck. The part I for one am struggling with is waiting while my order advances in the process. It is a first world problem and I'm damn happy to have it.

Me too. I just hope that nothing screws up this great deal before we get a chance.

It's a dog eat dog world. By the time the CRD is available to order, EVERYONE would have had the chance to jump on the deal, so if anyone misses out, it's his own fault. Ya snooze, ya lose.
