    Have you heard anything more about the official ordering process? is it still "preference" based where each dealer can put in a preference but they don't have any idea what they are actually going to get yet? Any idea when dealers (especially Indiana) might know more about allocations?

    In another post, you mention you are getting the first Supra in June. Is this still true?

    Like I’ve said before, dealer training for the Supra is late June so don’t expect anything knowledgeable before that.

    Local dealer to me is training today. I requested to get any documentation they are allowed to release in pdf form to me. We will see if I get a email or not. I did give them 15k for my 3.0 Premium when they get it in.

    After being lied to by Priority, Checkered flag and another dealer near Baltimore. I wanted to make my intentions clear to Charles Barker I wanted my 3.0 Premium at MSRP. I was going to do 15k down anyway so figured I'd just expend it now to make a point.

    You can get them to give you in writing for MSRP along with a lower downpayment. If you did not get it in writing, they can always put a markup for it later. You now would have to wait for them to give you back 15k and it can take them "some" time to get that 15k back to you due to "accounting cycles". I seen it happened before.

    Oh no, I have it in writing. I made it very clear if I was going to drop a huge amount I was going to have it in writing. They said they will be doing a 5k markup on the LE only because it's a numbered car. Regular allocations they will sell at MSRP. I am first on the list thankfully.

    I I have deal for you. I put my name out to two different dealers who will sell a Launch edition at MSRP. Got a call yesterday from my local preferred dealer and he was able to get me the color I wanted so I am set. Then got a second call today from my second choice dealer and he has a Black Launch edition available at MSRP if you want to travel to upstate NY.

    Did they ever send you a spec sheet of your second choice? I currently have an allocation set for a black LE at the dealer where I put the deposit down back in January. At the time agreed they’d sell it MSRP and now at 5k markup. If I can get one w/o markup that would be awesome

    Yeah I agree with you 100 percent. I love the look of Black but not the work involved in keeping it nice. What color are you getting? I am getting the Red.
