Ouch! I think we have a new winner.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by J R Jensen:
Viper001, I special ordered my ODY on the 3rd of Sept and was told a couple weeks ago that it should be in by the end of Feb. Nothing extra special, MB EX nothing else, but I'm getting it as a UBS buy, that's way below MSRP. Incidently the dealer told me he had lists so long, both MSRP and UBS, that if you ordered one today you'ld get a 2003 in Sept or Oct.</font>
Fair enough, I knew when I put in that $500 amount that it would probably come back to haunt me. Like I said, if you are willing to wait many months for the van to come in, as long as you aren't renting a car or something to get to that point, and you have the patience, that is great. I will add though, I wouldn't depend on your 25 week estimate as gospel. With you coming in through a low price service, you will be even lower on a dealer's priority list than us boneheads paying MSRP, so don't be surprised if it's even longer. As an example, I thought a deposit and paying MSRP would net me a van in 3 weeks, it turned out to be 3 months.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by J R Jensen:
Viper001, My USB price will be $24,688 plus
tax and tags. I figure that's $2500 below
the MSRP and waiting for approximately 25 weeks makes my waiting worth about $100 per week. Makes waiting much easier.
