Destination charge?

I ordered my 1SS 1LE AGM Recaros NPP and rear camera about a week ago. This waiting thing sucks so I find myself on this site everyday lol. Has anyone had any luck not paying the $995 destination fee??

No, it's required....They charge the same destination charge no matter if it's transported 5 miles or 5000 miles.

That's what I figured. Think there's any chance my car arrives before Christmas? I'm thinking the holidays might slow the production process. That would be the best damn Christmas present of all time!

I'll say Maybe, if you got it in before the 1LE order hold date you may get it. Last year they held up shipping during the winter because of the summer only tires. They are doing it again this year and if yours gets delayed for some reason it may be spring before you get it.

Yeah I read about that. I thought as long as I ordered before November 19th I would be fine considering that's when they plan to suspend orders...

Yeah that's why I'm hoping it's done by mid December. It was queued for production on Tuesday (11/12) for whatever that's worth.

Since yours is already built (hopefully) I would say you should get yours then. Unless they have a freak blizzard before then.

Destination is up to a grand now? It was barely $500 on my Oldsmobile just 10 years ago. What a scam.

Fuel prices are a lot higher now than 10 years ago.
In 2003 Diesel fuel averaged about $1.50 a gallon, today it averages $3.80....

Five years ago, destination was closer to $700, and fuel was almost $1 a gallon more.

that $1 more was not for the entire year though, that only lasted about 5 months, it actually went down to near $2.00 a gallon by the years end.

The year before though it was much lower and that is what the destination charges for 2008 were based on. What were they in 2009 when the price went back down some.
Right now fuel prices are over double what they were in 2003 but destination charges have not doubled.

Still, if a ton of freight can be moved about 450 miles on a gallon of fuel (a commonly used stat), then even if they shipped it 2000 miles on average, they still only have about 30 bucks of fuel in it, even at today's prices. So even with fuel prices doubling from a few years ago, that's only an extra $15 on fuel.

But then you got to pay the union guys who got a raise every year for the last 10 years that loads the cars, unloads the cars, drives the rig, etc., etc. Welcome to North American union labor. They're making money off of it. Someone is. And we all pay it or we don't get the cars. Cost of buying a new car. Challenger is 995 as well. But the Mustang...save $200. $795.

Probably because the Chally and the Camaro get charged for the extra seat because they're so fat.

Interesting you brought that up. When I ordered my Mustang, the shipment was delayed a month because one of the truck driver unions was on strike, and Ford and their contractors wouldn't cave. I think the union lost in the end.

Mine was built 11/15/12 and arrived in Houston 12/3/12, hopefully that helps and it does seem that yours should arrive by Christmas.

Well that's definitely encouraging! I'm going back to Michigan for Christmas so I guess it'll sit in the garage for about a week...if it does in fact arrive before Christmas. That will be the longest week of my life!

Dont forget to make them deduct the "processing fee"...even though it is to guarantee the salesman his commission, you can have them deduct it but still charge it so it zeros out.
