I've been doing a lot of calling and stopping by dealerships in my quest for an RS at or below MSRP. Many of the dealers I've run across that claim to have allocations are trying to get some pretty high mark-up on these things. A couple have even joked that they're going to let them sit in the showroom to see just how much someone is willing to pay for it. Smart business? Greasy and dishonest? I leave the morality of it up to you all. I'm just going to post up the dealers who have told me they want additional dealer markup for the RS. I'll also encourage others to post their own findings as well. Perhaps it will save time for those still looking for an RS at a reasonable price. So without further ado, here are the ones we know of...

If you know of a dealer asking for money on top of the sticker, post it up. If you got different numbers at one of the dealers above, post that as well. Some of these guys might change their tune if allocations start getting shifted to other dealers.

Stamford Ford Lincoln - Stamford CT - 5k

Family Ford - Enfield CT - 5k

I was fortunate enough to find a dealer with one allocation and no mark up. Placed a deposit yesterday :D
Sorry OuttaFocus, this info doesn't really help you considering I'm in New England but hopefully it helps others.

jesus, $5-10k?!?!?!


Its "just" a focus!!
I think that's the problem these dealers are going to run into. In Europe, where rally is very popular, there's a lot of heritage and brand recognition for the RS badge. Here in the states, not so much. To most Americans, it's just a "souped up Ford Focus." Supply may be small, but there is a very small pool of people willing to pay $50k+ for a "souped up Ford Focus." All it takes is some bad press - a recall, QC issues, cars not meeting HP figures - for that small pool to turn into a puddle. Suddenly trying to add as much markup as possible becomes trying not to sell it at a loss. Even the announcement of more competition - a more powerful STi in 2017, for example - could put a big dent in what people are willing to pay. It's a big gamble on the part of the dealer, and the buyers as well.

Don't get me wrong though: I want the car to be a hit. I want it to be the great driving experience we're all hoping for. I want more people to turn off Nascar and discover rally. And I want the car to appreciate, not depreciate. But if waiting a few months saves me 5 grand, so be it. I've got plenty of other stuff to drive in the meantime.

No way in hell its going to appreciate.

Spradley Barr Ford in Cheyenne, WY and Fort Collins, CO..... 5k ADM, not to mention the most retarded management staff I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

San Leandro Ford - San Leandro,CA (ADM: $3K to $5K)

I got it with a $3K ADM, and was told they might be able to go lower depending on demand closer to release. I placed my ordered on 12-OCT-2015, however more recently I heard they are now charging $5K ADM.

Some more...

Frontier Ford - San Jose, CA: $5,000 ADM and they have 2 allocations available
Capitol Ford - San Jose, CA: $3,000 ADM and not sure about the allocation

I ordered mine at Sunnyvale Ford (not with $10,000 ADM though).
They may not have allocation available for me but I can either wait or cancel.

Here are some of mine:

  • Sunnyvale Ford - Sunnyvale, CA: $10,000 ADM
  • Livermore Ford - Livermore, CA: $5,000 ADM
  • Fremont Ford - Newark, CA: $5,000 ADM
  • Heritage Ford - Modesto, CA: $5,000 ADM

Ford of Londonderry, NH $5,000 ADM
They quoted me $3000 ADM! Not sure when you were asking. When I inquired, they only had 1 of 3 allocations left (mid-October?).

I found a few notes I kept when searching for an RS:

Twin State Ford (St Johnsbury, VT) - initially quotes $5k, but said markup wasn't finalized
Autofair Ford (Manchester, NH) - $5k
Unique Ford (Goffstown, NH) - $3k (they initially told me they don't charge markup, but the manager apparently changed his mind when I came in to order it. They passed it off saying that Ford charges the dealers $3k for each RS, so the markup ensures they break even.)
Ford of Londonderry (Londonderry, NH) - $3k

And finally,
Rowe Westbrook (Westbrook, ME) - initially wanted $10k. Apparently had 5 people interested in the RS but none at $10k. So, they decided to have the people bid for the allocation, with a $2k opening bid. I got a couple calls after this asking if I was still interested at $2k, so I'm assuming no one else bit at $2k either. They haven't called back since I told them I got one for MSRP.

I asked probably in early October. I ended up ordering from Grappone in Bow and they didn't have any markup. It's a bonus because I work right across the street so I will hopefully see the carrier drop the car off!

Man I through a fit when my local dealer wanted to up-charge $1k. I actually walked away from the deal and contacted the regional rep. I ended up paying MSRP... I simply can't imagine paying ADM on this car.
