Are there any owners in the Dallas area here who can talk about experience with locals dealers and markups? There are 3 VW dealers in a 10 miles range from where I live who all marked up their current inventory by about $6-$7K. As an example they have entry level ID.4 PRO RWD listed at $46K to $47K. And one dealer has a used Pro-S for $49K which might not even qualify for the tax rebate anymore.
I am thinking about ordering an ID.4 Pro S AWD since the AWD models have not been rolled out yet to dealers here and AWD models are rare in Texas anyhow.
Has anyone ordered a car and was forced to pay a markup? I am reluctant yet to order one because I am not willing to accept any such markups. Especially after waiting for months.
Thx

Best to negotiate the terms with a dealer before ordering and have it on paper. Or ask around and see who will take you in as a customer that will be paying MSRP for an ID.4. Back in late June - early July, I emailed maybe 10-15 dealers across Northern California to see who has a vehicle in stock, in transit, etc.; and who wants me as a customer that is paying MSRP only; no markup and was able to find a car by July 4th that way.

I did put in a reservation probably late June also, but obviously cancelled after purchasing and never even reached step 2 of the reservation process.

I bought mine (ID.4 Pro S) at Lewisville VW (formerly Bobby Beck's VW). I reserved it, though, and bought it when it came in.

They did not markup the vehicle and there was zero pressure tactics, but again, I reserved mine and I purchased just before this whole chip shortage fiasco happened which is obviously driving up new and used car prices everywhere.

Lewisville VW did change owners recently, so I am not sure if my sales agent is still there - Joe Downs. Chris Eagan, the sales manager at the time, was very helpful even as they were still learning about the ID.4 themselves. Spent quite a bit of time with me going through the vehicle and setting up the Car-Net app.

If you want, I can try to reach out for you, try to get a read of the tea leaves for you...

Sincerely,

Adam J. Cook

Midlothian here! I wanted the blue, Pro S but when I was ready to buy, none to be found in DFW. I was headed down to H Town in early August to watch the Astros that weekend, and got the dealers demo with 600m at DeMontrond in Conroe. Been a happy camper since!

I visited Hendrick VW in Frisco, and salesman George Strong says they sell pre-ordered ID.4s at MSRP with no required dealer add-ons unless the buyer wants them. Also, just $150 dealer/doc fee. Of course, I don't have that in writing (yet).

I was holding to reply to this thread until the car was in my garage and the initial dealer experience was completed. ;)

I selected Volkswagen of McKinney (aka Brandon Tomes VW). I can report no funny business and they provided great service. MSRP and expected delivery costs - my $500 deposit.

There were two other couples there that I didn't get to speak to that were also picking up their cars. A white and then a black ID4 that someone snagged while the car was still in port. The original person that reserved the black car canceled it before it was in transit to the dealer.

Loving the car!
