Hi Everyone,

I am not a dealer, just a fellow prospective RS owner...Approximately one week ago, I put in an unallocated order with a small dealership here in VA and hoping for the best...

Today I was called by two dealerships that got allocations for a 2016 RS, both selling @ MSRP. So naturally, I was thinking...should I wait for an unallocated order? Or wait for an Allocated Order...hmmmm.... One of the dealerships is just 10 mins from my house and whom I have purchased my previous two fords from, so I went on down there and configured it all out and locked it in. Literally, no joke...as I am walking out of the dealership, I get an email from the dealer with my unallocated order saying "Congratulations, your order has gotten allocated, you will be getting a 2016 RS!". What??!?! how did this happen? LOL I went from nothing to two allocated orders in a blink of an eye.

Needless to say I cannot afford both and in looking on this forum at how so many dealers are wanting ADM, I am looking to offload the initial order I placed to prospective RS owner. No gimmicks, no ADMs... This is allocated, but not yet scheduled, so still time to make changes. I had considered waiting for it to be scheduled, but then I thought that would mean whoever wants it cannot make any changes to their liking. The only reason I am offloading this particular order is because the dealership is about 140 miles form my home, versus the one that is 10 mins away and have prior relationship with. It is worth noting that the dealer associated with the order up for grabs was purchased from a dealer on the "white list" (Non-ADM) that was listed on another thread here.

As of right now, it's a fully loaded Nitrous Blue, with RS2 pkg, moonroof, 19" forged painted wheels, car cover...all at MSRP, I even have a signed buyer's order for it. I suspect it will be built in August and delivered in Oct/Nov timeframe, but that's just a guess.

I am assuming all that would be needed is to partner up with the interested party and the dealer to transfer this over...but I am more than willing to work to figure that all out. All I am looking to get out of this is my deposit back, that's it.

If there's any interest, please PM me and PLEASE, serious inquiries only.

Come toast with me to an allocated order @ MSRP!

Regards,
YourNameHere :p

Dang! I don't want to toot my own horn here, but it seems like, I just got two forum members hooked up with allocated orders at MSRP from two different dealerships! It feels good to hook up honest people while shafting the dealers charging ADM!

Congrats, I found two M2's sitting on lots (one was passed on by a member here on focusrs.org!) and passed them on to happy new owners on the M2 board. Waiting for the proper spec, if I can't find a M2 soon I'll be jumping on a RS.

I am one of the members that got hooked up with an allocation at MSRP. I have been a long time lurker on this site and wanted my first post to be one of gratitude. I have been so impressed with this forum/community. I look forward to paying it forward. Thanks to YourNameHere, I am no longer waiting for a 2017. Thanks buddy!!

Of course! You are most welcome...lets keep in touch in PM on order status, i presume we'll be built around same time and on the same boat...

No one except those on this forum can relate to the stress or appreciation on the effort that goes into this whole process...example, i told my wife i got allocated!!!! Shes like, so what!?! Whats the big deal!? SMH :). After an hour of explaining and then telling her your story of where you are from and where your order is, she was like OMG, for real!?! I said, are you starting to understand how hard this cars are to get without paying markups? :D

I have dealt with so many dealers. I got excited about this car early in 2015 when I learned about it. I have been on a a wait list since August 2015 at my local dealership. The dealers that were selling at msrp did not have any available for 2016 and I wasn't going to pay ADM (not that there is anything wrong with that). I don't think it will be hard to get a 2017 at sticker price but I am tired of waiting!

Truthfully, the whole experience and all the waiting makes the car that much more special, atleast to me.

That, and the exclusivity of the car. But that may only be temporary...i haven't seen any on the road in my city yet...see evos, subes, golfs, no RSes...

I was waiting to acknowledge @YourNameHere until the ink dried (superstition or some such nonsense) but I can confirm he also set me up with an allocation at MSRP. Good lookin out man, thanks!

Now back to the waiting game....
