X plan vs d plan vs MSRP

How much of a $$$ difference is there between the two plans and MSRP? I was in a local dealership getting an oil change for my wife's van and decided to go bs with the salesman about the CobraJet on their showroom floor, during our conversation he mentions that the two GT500s on the lot are at or just below MSRP. A 2010 Vert black on black an a 2012 SVTPP fully optioned silver and red( nice car). Said the 2012 was under 56k. They've GT another 2012 on the way to them today as well.

I then asked if they do any of the x or d plans and he said "yep, our owner loves these cars and likes to sell em too". I thought DUH, who owns a dealership and doesn't like to sell their inventory. I then asked about 2013s and he says if the plans are available they'll do it. If not they'll probably do MSRP. The anticipation of waiting on the price is killin me.
The downside to going through them I they have to renew their Certification with Ford and that wont happen until March, he didn't think they could order before then.

I think most of them will now, earlier this year it was hit or miss. I'm "sort of" looking for a 2012 GT500 and every dealer I've talked to so far would accept X Plan.

Re: X plan vs d plan vs MSRP

X-Plan is invariably within $150 or so of dealer invoice - while ALSO placing a limit upon the "processing" fees dealers are allowed to charge. A/Z plan is usually about 3% below X-Plan - and D-Plan usually adds $100 to A/Z-Plan pricing.

But yes, the issue for SOME locations is whether dealers will honor them. Some are only too happy - others hang on to them like grim death. I have a local dealer that still has a silly $7,500 ADM sticker on a 2012 GT500 and $10,000 on a standard BOSS 302 sitting in his showroom.

I love harassing idiots like those - making them explain why "market adjustment" wouldn't ALSO apply to my trade-in, or when they inevitably ask "WHO is honoring X-Plan?" running down the list of nearby stores loud enough for customers to hear (whether I know if they'll honor it or not).

I actually know a nearby dealer with a loaded '12 Convertible who'd deal UNDER invoice.

Re: X plan vs d plan vs MSRP

I just got my 12 GT500 SVTPP last month on A-Plan. I believe the MSRP was $55,7XX and the A-plan price was around $47,800 if I remember correctly. My dealer didn't hesitate when I asked if they would honor the A-plan pricing.

Where did you get your car? I'm in southern california and i have called about a half dozen dealers already and none will honor the X-plan. Most said if anything they will sell near sticker.

It really depends upon the dealer. SOME use their franchises as opportunities to try to profiteer off in-demand product - I've seen ADM stickers as high as $30K above SRP. I took no small amount of satisfaction when I re-visited a dealer I'd been to when shopping for my '11 who insisted upon $5K above sticker - to see the very same 2011 Coupe parked next to a 2012 in the showroom.

It's unfortunate, as it comes at the expense of both the customer AND the maker. Just keep calling nearby dealers and I'm sure you'll find one eager to let one go for X-Plan - presuming you have a PIN. Look at eBay listings, autotrader or cars.com as a starting point. SOME dealers in winter-bound states are likely to be more eager, especially on convertibles. But Ford is not coming-out with the 2013 until summer - so SOME dealers who don't necessarily finance their inventories may be willing to sit on them for a few months more before cutting them loose.

Don't be afraid to have a car shipped-in. I had mine sent from WI to PA and it only cost me $600.

Re: X plan vs d plan vs MSRP

Whoa, 30K!!! I agree. I called a few and they offer X-plan on a 2012... so hopefully they can on a 2013. I can wait for one. You didnt by any chance order from Jeff at Yocum did you? How do you go about purchasing a car out of state? Did you go there in person?

Re: X plan vs d plan vs MSRP

Nope. Don't know Jeff Yocum.

Ford ended production early, nixing some allocated units that had already been placed but not yet invoiced - including mine. I had actually tracked-down like cars that were either made or in the pipe and found the nearest one that hadn't yet been delivered to the dealer, so I knew it hadn't been driven or sitting.

Being late in the year, the store was willing to sell it to my dealer at his net, so I had it shipped in and did the deal.
