Just ordered my 2016 Focus RS to complement my 2009 Evo MR. Have wanted an RS since they had Cosworth parts! Ronnie P.

Welcome to the forum! Congrats!

Were you able to find a model to buy that was being offered at MSRP, or did you end up paying a premium on top?

I ordered the Nitrous blue, with RS2, with 19" Alloy Michelin Summer tires, and the 18" Silver flake snow tires" I will pay MSRP, $42200, it is in the order Q, and should have the build date in 3 weeks according to the Fleet manager.

Did you at least have the chance to see a Nitrous Blue RS in person along with any other color before ordering?

Any idea what allocation is like at your dealer?

I have only seen pictures of the nitrous blue which I know won't be accurate. The dealer had a dealer order book with a chip, but I ordered the blue because I didn't want any of the other colors. I didn't ask how many the dealer had allocated. I just knew that they were able to order the car, so they had at the least one. I just happen to have stepped into the dealer and asked about the MSRP. I like others had real difficulties finding a dealer who was willing to sell at MSRP. I had 2 in NM who were willing, but neither had an allocation. They were small dealers. The 2 in NM who had allocations wanted a $5k or $10k addendum. I had to go to another state get it at MSRP. When they said they were willing to sell at MSRP and had an allocation, I stopped asking questions, and put my money down. It seems like an unlikely dealer to sell at MSRP, since they are in a very affluent neighborhood. I know they are a large volume dealer, but they specialize in the luxury models, especially Mercury, not fords performance cars. They gave me a copy of the order confimation showing the addition of the car to the order bank for them, and should have a build date allocated in the next 3 weeks.

I think them doing that also has to do with developing a relationship with customers which ends up benefiting them and the customer a lot. Willing to bet someone is more likely to go to a dealer that gave them a good experience from the start rather than one trying to get the most from the first interaction.

sweet dude, congrats! Curious why you also got the winter tire pack living down in NM?
