Where are the rest of the Alabama future RS owners, we should have at least three more, by looking at the map. I ordered my car from Long Lewis Ford in Birmingham who had two allocations, at MSRP. Adamson Ford had one allocation but wanted some ADM, which they would not share until the car came in, and Town and Country Ford said they had two allocations, but never gave me a firm price. Where did you other guys buy yours in Alabama.
When did you place your order? When the order banks first opened they wouldn't tie down the price, said they wanted to see what the other dealers were going to charge. I went and talked to the GM with my checkbook in hand and he would not give me a firm price, great that you were able to get it for MSRP!
I called back my salesman (David G.) and told him he lost my business for not selling to me at MSRP, so maybe they got the message. Have you given your order number and dealer number over on the order Status page to see if it has been scheduled yet?
Doesn't look like it, according to the map we only have four members in Alabama, Lastdoughnut shows from Montgomery but for some reason doesn't show up on the map. So I guess we have 5 members. Hopefully we will get some good news today.
I can't believe they will not ship most if not all of the cars on the same ship, maybe one east coast one west coast, but I wouldn't think there are enough cars coming from Germany without the RS's to make a load. The only other car that I thought was coming from Germany was the Fiesta's.
I got the one and only allocation down at Sandy Sansing Ford in Daphne. I am stationed over in Mobile but Mullinax had already sold their allocation when I inquired after I wrecked my ST. However I didn't check any of the other dealers around Mobile. I did get it for MSRP though fully loaded Nitrous Blue RS2 Package, with upgraded wheels, not the tires though.
My dealer Bryan happened to message me on the focusST forums about a month ago just to find more local ST users, then i told him my story of how i wrecked my ST and I was interested in the RS and he totally hooked me up. My wife is currently in boot camp for the Coast Guard(like me) so I've been driving around in her Mini. When she graduates at the end of the month we will be a single car family both active duty Coast Guard stationed at 2 different bases in Mobile. So Bryan talked with his managers and they are going to lend me a different car per week, so they can sell them, until my RS gets here! I couldn't believe how awesome they helped me out. Hopefully they won't charge me at the end though. Haha fingers crossed.
Anyways sorry for the long winded post, I am definitely interested in a meet up once we all get our cars!
Welcome Volt, my car, Stealth Grey RS2 was on the scheduled to be built 2/10 then got moved back to selected for scheduling and looks like this weekend got updated to scheduled to be built 3/2. So maybe the 2nd time it will work out. I know it will probably be 6-8 weeks after being built but we can hope for an earlier ship.
When did you guys place your orders? I have only been able to get intelligent responses from one dealership (T&C) about the RS. They have one allocation left (Black RS2), but it's nothing like what I want (blue RS1).
