Who to order from
 
Is there any advantage to order a new SRT from certain dealers to try and get it quicker? Do the large dealers get more allocated to them? Or if I was the only person ordering at a small dealer, maybe I could get it quicker because it was their only one?

If the dealer has allocation (and most should in the beginning) then it won't matter as both orders will go in as "Sold Orders" and be prioritized based on order date, not dealership size or allocation. You just may want to confirm the dealership has allocation and that may be the tricky part.

Perhaps later in the year, if they put the SRT on restriction, only dealers with higher allocations will be able to order them but I don't think it will come into play for the initial batch of orders.

Thanks! Of course I wanted Red, so it might be a moot point.

I was talking to the GM at my dealer and he was telling me that they are supposed to be in to get 50 of these when they are released. Who knows though since we all know how reliable some of the information we get is. :rolleyes:

I agree...that's why I said what I said about it. I believe what they say to a degree. I have to go back there later this week and I'm going to ask the owner directly.

What dealership do you go to? We have to start seeing what dealership in the Chicagoland area is going to the the main 'SRT dealership' - for a great price - and ordering 50 SRT's is a good start; kind of like what Champion Jeep in Barrington was.

Scott, thanks for the heads up for a Mass dealer. I e-mailed him today about an SRT, I'll let you know what he says.

Peter got back to me, he talked to GM and said $500 over invoice. I said let's do it. Maybe I could have got $1,000 off somewhere else, but I am happy to do the deal. Scott thanks again for the referral,
