I spoke with the Sales Manager at VOB in Rockville today. Anyone pre-order with them?

The guy confirmed that they are certified to get the car.
Initial allocation is 3.
He expressed doubts about getting more anytime soon. But I have hope. (I'm not among the first three. Dammit.)

(Chris - their list is up to 12.)

Our agreement is for MSRP. We'll see if they try to change that.
As it stands, they've been very nice and have offered good communication.

I'm curious as to where area members have gone, where they are on the list, and what deal they have been offered.
If you feel that you are inviting competition by disclosing it, I understand. Either don't list the dealership or don't reply.

I will say that I won't, out of principle, pay more than sticker for the car.

Yup, VOB also agreed to sell me at MSRP. They are one of the very few that would sell the GTR at MSRP, but they are just like the rest I've checked that does not have firm info on additional confirmation.

But towards the end of the phone conversation with the salesperson, I was asked if I like to be the 11th buyer, then asked me if I knew the MSRP....finally he showed his true color and told me if I would pay $5K over I can be the one of the few taking their initial allocation. So, if anyone of you might be interested paying over sticker and be able to get one sooner than everyone esle, I guess VOB would gladly play the gouging game with me.

I would not disclose that salesperson's name, but it sure was disappointing to hear that even those dealers who seem to be willing to sell at MSRP will still play this game. If you don't mind the possible waiting period and a short drive to the south, Pinehurst Nissan would be a great choice. 100% and honest folks to work with.

And you can always take your GT-R to VOB to get serviced, I doubt the salesperson would ever know.

Ugh. That is such a bummer. Figures.
The idea that they will allow someone to jump ahead of me is so disheartening.
I am a big free-market fan. But I'm also a fan of integrity.
If you tell me up front that I have to pay X dollars over msrp to get the car, fine.
I'll either say yes or no and will have no issues with it.
But don't tell me that I'm number whatever on the list and have my MSRP deal set, then change your rules.

Unfortunately, dealers play these games. I guess it's really not a surprise.
But what it means to me is an even longer delay in taking delivery or opting not to buy the car.

Smart of you to arrange a deal with more than one dealer.

Based on exit polling in the tight Nevada primaries, it seems that boost has come from behind to take the win.

I am not going to get a first-run car, so hopefully dealers will come to their senses. If the markup extends into the second MY, I'll just get another Porsche or Aston. Amazing that I can get a discount on a Porsche, but would have to pay over on a Nissan!

That seems to be the game every dealer is playing nowadays. One BMW dealer in Fairfax (I don't want to be too blunt
) was at the merge of playing that game with me when I called back to place an order for the E92 M3. Very disheartening indeed. Surprisingly I could get just about any AMG model 4~5K under MSRP, and might possibly be able to do the same for E60 M5. Now these other options certainly start to look very attractive.

With all these "market adjustment" games out there, a brand new E92 M3 and GT-R might end up be more expensive than a lot other very nice cars. I might want to try to other dealer in NC where my friend was able to get a brand new '07 Z06 on the lot 4K under MSRP. Maybe if I could place an order for ZR-1 at MSRP?

I am #4 at VOB... Msrp in writing..... But I'm #2 at herb Gordon in silver spring at msrp.... Frederick nissan I think is doing the markup thing.... My friend is high up in darcars and he can get me one for msrp at darcars nissan in Rockville but they aren't takng deposits... Dc area has the most competition so we have the best shot at msrp deals..... They are put there

Sheehy Nissan in Manassas emailed me this the other day.

I can take deposits on the GT-R now the pricing is going to be $96,900 on a GT-R and $98,900 on the GT-R Premium. I know you don't want to pay anything over MSRP so let me know if you are interested or not. The deposit I will need will be $1,000 if you are interested in it. Thanks

I have called a # of dealers in the NoVa area and all were asking for $20k markup... I have since gone elsewhere and secured a much more reasonable deal.
I suggest looking elsewhere and letting the local dealers sit on their inventory...

On one of the other threads, some guy claimed to have gotten the SS at MSRP from Darcars a few weeks ago . They still had the Titanium in the showroom a couple weeks ago. Passport Nissan is supposed to get two in a few weeks. One white and one red reportedly.
