Greetings all, am new to this site. A dealer has a 2016 GT350 in with the options I want (Track Pack + color). There overage charge is $30K, which I told them I would not pay. My counter was $5K, which they are currently considering. Wanted to get a sense from you all what you would consider to be a reasonable overcharge.

Hey Rainier,
30 k seems very steep esp for a non r model. There are other threads in this forum that should help you. Stick to your 5k as long as you're comfortable- I wouldn't go much higher. Good Luck!

Pay what you can. Most dealers seem to be willing to sit on cars and wait for buyers. It also seems to depend on how many cars your dealer has been allotted. My dealer only got 2.

I support most of the comments here..I have a dealer bugging me at $10 over here in Pa.
$5000 over seems to be reasonable. There are still dealers at $20,000 over for sure. I would do something soon if you are serious as I would think when the weather breaks here in the NE markups will hold as demand bumps up a bit. Car is still getting a ton of positive press, Jay Leno etc...

My dealer in S FL has 1 allocation that needs to be filled asap. They're asking $5k over and was told they would build the car right away. Let me know if someone is interested, I will post contact info.

Now that over 3000 "street" cars are on the road or in the pipeline, expect ADMs to vanish on those as 2017 production ramps up and brings even more. I suspect Ford operatives watch actual sales, and forums like this to gauge market forces. Rs will be a steady big ADM (not if you are a VIP, like the president of the MCA and a few others), unless they announce an actual build limit. A lower # than anticipated will drive those up, etc. I have mixed feelings about that as I want as many of us to get one, but don't want to see too many to dilute future appreciation if I should ever want to sell. I have been trying to find out the # of sets of wheels and other R specific items produced or contracted for, without any luck. Any help appreciated!

I paid the markup because I wanted the car. I would like it to keep it's value but that is not the reason I bought it. I'm not worried about knock off parts. Sure would like a set of carbon wheels for track use. Also would like a reasonable cooler upgrade for the trans and diff.

I agree with Tank. Selfishly we want the prices to hold but $20 over is crazy. Especially with everyone's comments about deals at 5-6 over.....

In the San Francisco Bay area, dealers seem to have agreed with each other on +20k markup on a GT350 and +50k or more for the possibility of a GT350R. Those cars were also months from being built. I paid a deposit to get on one of their lists (I wanted to ensure I could get a car), then I went looking for better deals. I spent some time calling around to several states and it seems that, as of the last week in February, dealers in the Western states with a car had settled into asking for $15-20k over MSRP. Most would deal down to the +8K to 13k range with a little effort, so I chose the color I liked and paid up. The dealer I placed my deposit with was also very surprised when I returned a week later in my GT350 to get a refund on my deposit for their GT350 allocation.

I may have paid a higher price than some, but I've already put a couple of thousand miles on my car, and I enjoy the hell out of it.

I agree. I found a couple of dealers that were willing to go down to 18.5 but 20 seemed to be the magic number. My local dealer did a little better but I'm still waiting for the track pack spoiler I ordered 6 weeks ago.

Dealer called me and said they dropped the overage from $30K to $10K and that if I came in, they would work with me. Have an appointment this week and will be sticking to the $5K since there are options.

Most dealers in SoCal are posting a $20k mark-up for a 2016 GT350, but will agreed quickly to $10k. To go lower, you'll need to be prepared to walk from the deal. Most likely, the dealer will call you within 24-hours to make a deal. I don't know about $5k, but $8k is definitely in the ballpark. I paid a little more for a 2015, but because of the more limited production I thought it was worth it.

Hey Rainer,
Good Luck, stick to MSRP and use all that's floating out there about the 2017s having all the goodies a street/track guy would want. Better yet, try to get it for $5 under sticker!!!! Let us know.

Ok, went to the dealer yesterday (Fred Beans in Doylestown, PA) and was able to talk them down to $5K over. Since I am active in SAAC/MCA and show my Mustangs regularly in local shows and at Carlisle, I believe they took the marketing bait. Telling them that there are dealers out there willing to sell close to MSRP helped as well.

This 2016 is Yellow with black stripes, black roof, and has the Track Pack. Wouldn't have ordered the black roof but Yellow w/Track Pack is what I was after. Will be picking her up this coming Monday. Looking forward to the wife driving her (she likes fast cars).
