It has already been relisted (twice). Last time it went to $23K+. Don't know if they are thinking of selling over MSRP.

I called and they are listing it over MSRP but I didn't ask how far over they wanted. I went to 23,300 which equals the cost of the Abarth I ordered.....this one is the dealer model so it is loaded. The guy said he had 1 April allotment left to reserve.

The guy said he had 1 April allotment left to reserve.Actually it has the cloth seats and 16" wheels so it is not fully loaded. Looks like they added a mark up which is an automatic fail to do business with me.. Since this is it's third time around it doesn't look like no one is willing to pay it either.

If that dealer can get over MSRP, good for him and good for us that bought the car at MSRP. :)

So much for my hopes of a unified front of resistance against price gouging.

This sort of thing is why I've decided to go the long way 'round. I traded my 500 Sport in last week for a car similarly priced to the 500 Abarth. ;)

When prices normalize next year, I'll trade this in for a 500 Abarth or Turbo.

Very nice. Surprisingly, I do fit in the 500 but not in a Boxer....not even close. Besides, I've waited over a year now, what's a few more months.......

looks like the winning bid on the first car was $100 over MSRP...not bad if you can pickup the car yourself and don't need to pay freight or dealer "fluff" i.e. advertising fees.

But, it IS a dealer so I'm sure they will add all of the additional dealer charges and anything else they can think of.

just read the fine print. winning bid plus $299 admin fee.

Of course if there is any leather in the car (or within ten feet), any good dealer will prominently put LEATHER in the header or on the first line.

This auction shows it had-
Leather-Wrapped Instrument Panel Cluster Brow
Leather-Wrapped Shift Knob.

Maybe it's just me but when I see a car for sale and the ad says leather, I assume it has a leather interior.

This is just the kind of deceptive crap I expect from a car dealer. After I get home with a car from a dealer, I still continue to wonder how I got screwed and sometimes I actually find out.

Like you, I know left some money on the table, just never sure how much.
Maybe the G'vmt should have a dealer finance manager do our loan deals with China??

...and the seller estimates 2-3 weeks shipping? To Olathe KS? Not even close.

interestingly enough when you enter the VIN into the insight network's vehicle tracking link, it shows the vehicle still at D1 to be built status.
