I've got my ...
Inspection sheet courtesy of @ChasingCoral
My MCOA membership info with X-Plan pin written down
My insurance info/license/proof of residency
My pre-approval letter/check from Navy Federal
The printout of the updated $100 early adopter plan for Auto Driving Assist from @hybrid2bev

What am I forgetting? I think I've decided on a name, but not locked in yet. LOL

Here's my timeline, and I'm well aware that I'm super lucky and shouldn't have my car yet. Ford Estimated delivery would be between 2-23 and 3-1 and it arrived by truck on 2-16.
Order Date 6-29-20
Scheduled for Production aka Built 1-12-21
Built aka Shipped 1-22-21
Arrived at Final Rail Destination 2-12-21
Left by Transport Truck/Arrived at Dealership 2-16-21 (it came on a transport truck with a GT Mustang 5.0 and an F-150 SuperCrew 2.7

Thanks to all of you who've helped me pass the days with the various trackers, palsapp info, and even how to track a rail car through Norfolk Southern, which is something I'd never imagine doing in my life. But desperate times call for desperate measures.

Fusion to Expedition is quite a big jump.... the Mach-E is like the Goldilocks scenario there or something 😂

Well this dealership is a nightmare. Bait and switch, talking about selling my car out from under me. To say I'm pissed is an understatement. More details to come

I ended up getting the car but they added $900 to the MSRP off the bat hoping I wouldn't notice. Only gave $500 for x plan and full dealer fees of 399 and ignored the x plan 275 admin fee. I ended up not wanting to walk away because they aren't available anywhere close so I couldn't play hard ball. I ended up getting way better financing than I brought in which evened out my bottom dollar. But they tried to rip me off for about $1400 if I didn't notice, and once I noticed they tried to piss me off enough to force me to walk away from the deal so they could sell it at a markup. They tried to claim they were losing $20 selling me that car, I've got some ocean front property in Arizona to sell if you believe that.

In case folks aren't aware, the X-plan price is printed right on the vehicle's invoice. So, ask the dealer to shows you the invoice. $500 off for x-plan seems low for your config. For my Premium ER RWD, X-plan is ~$800 off MSRP.

Let's remove this dealership from the list of non-ADM dealerships. What's their name?

X Plan should be non-negotiable price. It is a set price and you should be able to clearly see it. I'm sorry you had this experience. You did all the right prep work too!!!

If you don't mind, what was the mileage on the vehicle once you finalized everything and were you able to test drive before committing?

Actually, with the X Plan, the customer pays the $275.00 admin fee. The "doc" fee that the dealer charges is limited to $100.00. Seems like they really worked you over. I'm hoping that my dealer is straight with me when I pick my MME FE up next week.

They are just nasty - they are bringing bad name to stereotypical 1980s car salesmen
