It is going to be a long ~3 months (hopefully I can order on 9/9 granite color option availability). OCD hell
The dealer is about 200 miles away. So yes, going that far to get screwed would stink. I will definitely get things in writing on the day of order and the only folks I have been dealing with have been fleet/internet sales.
I'll check into Costco. There isn't one close by but I could probably sign up online.
I am definitely thinking about sweetening the pot with my local dealer. The increased price would be worth the peace of mind.
Sorry for any typos.....sending this reply from my phones tiny keyboard.
