Other than that, I know of no other Texan who was able to go below MSRP.

2011CS/GT, if you got yours without A,D,X,Z-plan, what dealer did you go to? Because if you got a discount without A,D,X,Z-plan, I am going to kick the everliving s*** out of myself for not going to your salesman instead!
Jim they would not let me use the X-plan on the CS. They would only let me use it on a GT or lower. So start kicking!!!! I buy all my cars from Texas Motors Ford in Ft. Worth. My wife was also buying a new car so I used that to my advantage as well. There is a manager there that I hit it off from day one.....so that never hurts either.

Total Invoice (including Holdback, FDAF, Fuel, Destination, etc) is roughly $28,766 on a GT Base.

Best price Ive seen is :
$700 Under Invoice including Doc Fee.
$500 Bonus Cash
$750 Brochure Cash

So $26,816 for a no option car. In reality you may or may not score the $750 Brochure Rebate and you are not likely to get $700 under. $28,000-28,500 is the more likely. On top of that you may have to order to score a no option car which will result in paying the Job 2 Price Increase.

The fastest Showroom Stock Car (12.5 @ 112) so far had Manual Trans, Base 3.31 Gear and Base 18" Wheels so you are not giving up much. Both my last two cars have been base models although I had the optional 3.55 on both.

I though that the brochure cash and the bonus cash could not be used together? That is what I was told when I brought it in..

Check out this dealership if you can:
http://rodbakerford.dealerconnection.com/
Great services, and no hassles whatsoever.

Got mine for invoice price: it was ordered and delivered in 2-3 months, I had no special plan or anything, but dealer gave me the $750 coupon and $500 rebates.

It may be closer for you & they're a bigger dealership with more options. But definitely check out McRee if you decide to head to the Houston area.
Thank for the link; and yeah, I actually looked at MacHaik, in Georgetown that is.
I actually got mine at Leif Johnson Ford, much closer to downtown Austin.
As it so turns out, I looked at my sales paper and I got some discount, $1000. It's not much, but I thought I paid full price.

I am heading down to Houston soon for vacation; I wish I would have known about McRee and Mac Haik in Houston. I could have used their sales and offers as leverage on the guys here in Austin.

Well congrat's on picking one up! The $1,000-discount is the current factory rebate Ford seems to be offering in Texas. Not all areas are getting $1K. On the Fordvehicle website you can enter your zip code & see what kinds of rebates are being offered locally. $1k is the rebate in my area as well. Mine should be here next week(crosses fingers) hopefully.

no offense, but maybe you should wait to land your career.

I also just recently graduated (Aug 09), been working since January (engineering position), living at home, and I only bought an 11 v6.

X-plan is a friends and family program. You do not need to be related to a Ford employee to get an X-Plan PIN number. All you need to do is provide the last 4 digits of your SSN to your "sponser". All dealers nationwide must give you the X-Plan price as this is a corporate program.

Hell, I got my X-Plan PIN number from a fellow MF'er from Michigan on this forum - this is a guy that I never met. I bought my '08 GT that stickered at $31,800 for $26,000 out-the-door with 1.9% financing!

You get one private offer which can be combined with all public offers. You just cant combine two private offers.

You should have gotten $500 Bonus Cash (Public) + $750 Brochure (Private). Their were two different subsidized financing programs at one time. Both were 0.0% on 36 months but on 48, 60 and 72 one was 1% higher. The lowest one was not $500 Bonus cash eligible. Check with Ford and see what you were entitled to. They should mail you a check if the dealer failed to give you your rebate.

The X-Plan program is available through all participating USA dealerships, however dealer participation is voluntary.
