I've been 1st on the waiting list for nearly a year with Henry Day Ford, they just notified me that they are asking $2500 ADM. I'll add more Utah dealers to the thread as I come across them.

If anyone knows of a dealer that will sell for MSRP, please let me know.

I did find a dealer in Mesquite Nevada, had 1 allocation and I have my name on it for MSRP. So...there are dealers out there who are willing to work with you.

Provo Ford told me they have 2 allocations at $500 ADM.

Hope this information helps somebody.

Welcome fellow Utahn.

The ADM didn't bother me, as there is so much trust in this transaction that makes it a non standard car sale. I much rather spend the extra and have someone I can trust, but I understand the frustration.

I placed my deposit at first announcement this year, sat patient until the order banks opened, and got it ordered lickety split. If they take care of the car on delivery; PDI, not washing, not installing the front plate, etc. I would say that the ADM was worth it, and everybody parts happy. (Results may vary.)

Not to mention, I got to work directly with the sales manager, and the order specialists directly. Made everything pretty smooth.

Where you located at?? I am in Clearfield..

Hey Hotness, glad to hear you have your order all set. What options did you get?

I understand this is all based on supply and demand, and the dealers are going to get what the customers are willing to pay. That's fair. I just wasn't willing to pay the ADM when I knew there were dealers NOT asking ADM. Thankfully I was able to find one of those dealers that still had an allocation available.

I figured I had the trust of Henry Day as well, been first on the waiting list for over a year, personally know the sales manager, purchased a Raptor with them. But they were only getting 2 allocations and figured they could make some extra money on them. I'm sure they'll get their ADM, just not from me.

Mesquite Ford has been great. Super easy to work with and also agreed to no front plate, no dealer stickers, no wash, etc. I'm in South Jordan...so I guess the only downside is the road-trip to go pick it up. Should be a fun drive though!

I just checked in with Provo Ford and they told me that for $5k ADM I could secure one of their two allocations. I passed.

Wow, they told me $500 last week. I confirmed that multiple times. But to be fair, the dude I was talking to on the phone was a newbie.

The guy I talked to at Provo Ford (who was actually really nice and helpful) but seemed to less familiar with these limited availability cars like the RS. He had to talk to his sales manager for each RS question I had. He first told me that the pricing was not determined on the RS, and then when I pressed what it would take to lock down an allocation for myself I got the $5k ADM answer. Perhaps if someone was to go in person they might do better than me, a random out-of-state caller who sounded a little desperate for an allocation!
