    John, I took your advice, they gave me an order number. When I called the concierge they confirmed my email and home address and told me status is 3300.
    I could not believe it. Seemed like it would never happen. Concierge was very nice and helpful. I finally feel like I might be close.

      When I was at 3300, then just a few weeks. All that waiting and then boom, it all happened quickly

        Put deposit down.

        Car arrives.

        Back out and pull or forfeit deposit.

        Dealer has car to sell off the floor.

        Or... as some on here have claimed they would do;

        "If my C8 has so much as a water droplet on it I'll refuse the car unless the dealer does (insert entitled demand here)!"

        Result, dealer has car to sell off the floor.

          Really.... WHO said the lead time was down (or GOING down) to six months?? No one has given me indication of 6 months including Mike (It’ll be at least another year) Furman...

            If you really want a C-8 right now. has 450 2020 listed for sale. 244 2021's are listed for sale there. Also MacMulkin's had 6 2021's listed for sale a couple of days ago.

              It happens only if the contract that they signed allowed it to. Sad that people let themselves get taken advantage of but it happens everyday. Read and understand what you sign.

                I stand corrected .... as of yesterday the MacMulkin list for the base C8 is 790. Depending on how many people pull out, and if production stays steady, that could mean November/December time frame (at that point it's a MY2022). Though the Z06 list is actually half that. At some point both models will be competing for resources.

                Was just at MM the other day, they finally sold the "high mileage" (7K) C8 and they have a contract on that last Ceramic Matrix Grey which is a pre production model (L50)

                  There is no shortage of money in Tysons at all. They will be gone within a week or so, that’s one of the wealthiest areas in the DMV. A burger and fries around there is $30.00 +. We do a lot of business in that area. Koons is also a massive car dealer...

                    Good advice. It probably does happen. My point in post #9 is too bad folks sometimes come on the forum and claim it happened to them and then they disappear and never give details. Here's an example from post 2552 of the Latest 2020 production numbers from BG thread. It was this "member's" one and only post.

                    Poster received feedback from several MECF members including this one from me sometime later:

                    No further word from you Lakerfan on this outrageous situation. Its still your first and only forum post. No response from you to inquiries about your situation. You gonna come back and let us know developments or are we left to wonder whether this really happened?

                    Poster never returned and no further post of any kind from this "member". Have seen this kinda thing before. Maybe people get the impression it happens more that it really does due to these questionable posts.

                      I’d just add again that I live in Northern VA and Koons is not my dealer for several reasons. The closer you get to DC, the more people are willing to flush their cash and everyone knows it.

                      Just did paper today for my purchase at Bomnin Manassas. Low dealer admin fee, but basically the sold it to me at MSRP just like they said they would. The manager actually stopped me on the way out, asked when I was picking up my car In Bowing Green and congratulated me on a great car.

                      No monkey business when you buy at Bomnin Manassas.
