To Order The Redline My Dealer Wanted 500 And Now He Might Want 1000 Down And Another 500 When He Gets To Place My Order That Sounds Kind Of Hi. He Also Said The Paper Work.inspection/tittle And Regs Was Aonther 499.00

Most are putting $500 or $1000 down as a refundable deposit. In case you don't want the car when it gets here. You should not have to pay for ANY paperwork until you take delivery of the car. Some of the other money he should not ask you for either, but he might want to see your commitment before he "special orders" a car.

I only put 500 down and then nothing else until my car came in... Their Doc fee sounds pretty high, I would see if they could cut some slack on that, that used to be part of the overhead except for the TTL fee. Most dealers will come down on the DOC fee at least half...

My dealer didn't require anything down which seems a little abnormal after reading other posts. Seems 500-1000 is normal. If you can swing it and you know you are going to wait out the game that is the GM experience it doesn't really matter as it will come off of the price of the car anyway.

$1000 seemed to be the norm for the origional Sky. I not only thought of it as me showing a commitment to buying the car but also conformation that I did buy it! I thought it showed we were both committed.:lol:

I haven't put anything down but I did volunteer to if the GM wanted me to. It's not like they can't find me since I work here...
I was bugging him earlier since we got AURA images to order to check if there was anything on the SRL but not yet.

Just got in line for the REDLINE ( first in line ). There was no request for a down pmnt., Although i will use my first Sky as a trade in. Plenty of time for things to change.

My local dealer requires no deposit. They are not taking deposits on any of the Skys they are selling. So far they have delivered three cars as of today.
