I disagree completely with the entire sentiment in the previous posts. I am a salesman first by trade, albeit in a much different profession and it is the dealerships responsibility to accommodate the buyer not the other way around. In no circumstance does the person laying out the cold hard cash need to consider the seller. Trust me the dealership is not going to look out for your interest. You are the customer and by all means say you are out of town or anything to delay that purchase if you want or need to save that money. To the dealership it is just the cost of doing business there is nothing you should be ashamed of or feel obligated to do other then pick up your vehicle in a timely fashion. There is nothing untimely about 2 or 3 weeks plenty of people go away for the holidays.

If you placed a deposit on your vehicle when you had it built and want price protection (for both you and the dealer), you need to take delivery within 15 days or your no longer price protected.
So if the price increases by $500 from the time you ordered, you're going to be on the hook for that difference, and can't expect the dealer to take all of the hit (although maybe they would be willing to).
Of course if you didn't put a deposit down you're not price protected anyway.
