    If there are any rockstar sales peeps on the forum or anyone who has any leads, please hit me up

    Cheers!
    I know Courtesy Ford in Altoona PA has one in transit but no car cover or winter wheels. You could call them up to see what kind of deal they'd work out for you.

    I'm trying to find an LE local and a Dealer is suppose to have one on the lot. I noticed the Window Sticker doesn't actually say LE. So how does one know by looking online if it is.

    All 2018 RS are the LE. So as long as it is 2018, you're good!

    If it's a 2018, it's a limited edition. If it's a 2016 or 2017, it's NOT a limited edition. It really is just that simple.

    For extra assurance, the 10th digit in the VIN for all LEs will be a 'J'

    As dkirby said, all '18s are LEs. Other giveaways are the gloss black roof, mirror caps, and spoiler as well as the carbon fiber door spears, parking brake handle, and analog gauge cluster trim. Also, the 18's are only available in nitrous blue or race red; note: red was not an option for the previous years of the RS.

    Was not aware of the Vin notation - but my understanding is also that it’s just as simple as 2016 & 2017 models are regular edition and all 2018s limited editions. If you like red or blue this is a good option for you - esp. if you wanted the car loaded too, cause you’re paying essentially the same $ with an improved rear diff.

    Autotrader has 243 2018s across the US currently. Since the 2017s are going slowly I’d pay list at the most for the 2018, my logic is the following:

    Bought my 2017 for $1,800 below MSRP 6 months ago (HG fever was simmering at most vs boiling at that time). People have cited purchases of 2017s on this forum with a discount of more than 3k recently.

    HG issues are clearly impacting the retail pricing of this car.....but I’d submit that Ford may also have too many units out there.

    I love the car, and everyone on here does, but it is a small production run for a reason. How many people have 40k to spend on a car? Of those, how many want a car like the RS (face it, there are a lot more non car guys/girls than there are of us)? And I think the RS is the best of the 4 obvious options in this segment - not being a fanboy of Ford, VW, Honda or Subaru (while having owned at least one from each maker now). But there are car nuts with 40k at their disposal who are clear fans of the others, so they are likely not buyers of the RS.

    I’d get a ride in an RS (drive a 2017 cause that’ll be easy to get a seat in and I doubt the differences are at all big or noticeable even, other than for a couple of extreme cornering scenarios)....mainly cause its insane to buy a car on written word vs direct experience. If it’s the car for me - I’d target a new 2017 for 3,500 off list or a new 2018 for 1,000 off list and come in blazing with financing sorted and ready to make a deal that moment. You will.

    Laurel Ford in Laurel, MT, has a stock order, RR '18 with winter wheels and tires on its way that should hit the dealership any day now. They sold us our '18 at MSRP. My husband is a tech in their service department. They're good folks.

    Current: '16 Frozen White RS2, '18 Nitrous Blue RS LE
    Old rides: '98 Toreador Red SVT Contour, '98 Silver Frost SVT Contour, '03 CD Silver SVT Focus 5-door, '13 Tuxedo Black ST3

    Bill Pierre Ford in North Seattle may work a deal with you, they did with me. They apparently sell the most RS's in Washington State. Not sure about drop ship though.
