unset dealer fee?? I would bet its north of 7500. Most of the dealers around here were $7500 markup from MSRP on Camaro when that first came out. I can only imagine they see the vette crowd as a bigger mark. I absolutely refuse to pay over MSRP...

There are reputable dealers out there who will not adjust higher than msrp. I have heard- Refundable deposit... sticker price no strings. Build to order per buyer. Written guarantee.

You must be #3 at Stingray Chevrolet(?)... I think they're up to the teens now.

I verified with my dealer (Boardwalk) that there are no hidden fees. MSRP, delivery, tax, license. I would walk away on delivery day if they added anything.

I didn't think any dealer allocations were assigned yet. Do you mean you are the third person to give a deposit and negotiate a price?

I believe he's guaranteed to be third in line to secure the dealer's third allocation spot, once it's available, at a price no higher than msrp.

Paying MSRP, no extras, no hidden fees. I talked Les Stanford Chevrolet (Metro-Detroit) and Coughlin Chevrolet (N/E Ohio) and had a detailed conversation with both. I have submitted a $1000 allocation deposit with Stanford. Every year both of these dealerships are ranked in the top 3-5 Corvette sellers in the country; 200+ units a year. Stanford and Coughlin guarantee that they will not sell a 2014 over MSRP, and that's in writing.

I also have a $1000 deposit with Les Stanford. I put it down last August. I am #3 on their list. They have promised no more than MSRP. I hear they don't play games. but we will see.

Stingray Chevrolet has a strict company policy of NOT selling any car above MSRP and a maximum dealer fee of $99.00. That is why I bought my ZL1 there. There are a lot of good dealers out there, Rodger's in Detroit, Classic in Texas and Stingray in Florida are true standouts in the group and very customer satisfaction oriented.

Paying $500 less than MSRP with no dealer doc fees at MacMulkin Chevrolet. Tom Thompson Jr. is the Man!

Not bad at all. Maybe I can use this example as some negotiating leverage with my local dealerships...

If they dont budge...give Tom a call at MacMulkin. They have over 250 allocations! There are no dealerships near me so I'm getting courtesy delivery from them.

Wow, 250 allocations! Thanks for the tip... I'm on my local dealership's waiting list but my dealer's first allocation of 9-mo supply is only about a dozen coupes plus the Comp seats which I want are delayed availability for sure. No deposit required for me since I'm a loyal customer (bought 2 cars from them before) and they guaranteed MSRP, no markups. I'll see if a discount albeit a small one will eventually be attainable...
