Lightbulb Who has deposit down for the Corvette Stingray?

I'll be hitting up my favorite local dealer this weekend to discuss getting on the deposit list.

Let's start a list of people with deposits already. Hopefully I'll be adding my name to the list in a few days

Pretty sure no one is currently, some may have a deposit holding etc. to get in and order the first stingray to their dealer.

I have a deposit at two different dealers. I'm hoping to get delivery in time to take her to SEMA. I'm seriously giddy over this purchase!

Ensure that you get in writing that they aren't charging over MSRP.

Precisely.

At a minimum, I'd want in writing and endorsed by a Sales Mgr:
1. MSRP or lower
2. Refundable deposit
3. No dealer added or padded options, accessories, fees, or other extras w/o my wriiten consent

Man, how fun would that be to be on a list. Knowing you would be one of the first to enjoy this much new technology.

My plans are the same, how much usualy does a deposite need to be?

My initial plans were to give a 25% Down Payment and finance the rest? So would that 25% be enough for a deposite, or would that be counter wise being to much?

I put down $1000 for the deposit. The down payment is an entirely different story.

Yup usually 1K just to reserve a spot...

The higher your d/p, the lower your monthly payments on a simple interest loan and better chance for credit approval but it still depends on your credit worthiness, APR, etc...

Going the dealership tomorrow (1/28) to drop a refundable $1000 for the "privilege" of waiting for an allocation. This dealership is one of top 10 Corvette sellers in the country (around 150-200 per year). Therefore, I am pretty confident that I'll see my car before the snow flies.
