I've never ordered a new car before, and although the final pricing/option details do not yet seem to be ironed out for the new GT, and I've been seeing the date alternate between April 17-May 17, I still want to place my order as soon as I can. I know that DEALERS mark hot new cars up when they first come out (some are saying the '05 GT could see a $5,000 dealer markup when first introduced). If I am ORDERING my new GT, don't I just pay MSRP? Or do they tack on a surcharge? Will ordering early really help me get my car earlier? Should I go to a local dealer, or is it better to do it online? Do you have to be pre-approved for financing, or can you just put down a deposit? How much do they require---is it a flat fee, or a percentage of the sticker?Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm not terribly concerned about early production model problems. If they crop up, I'll deal with them. I've been saying for years that I would get a new GT when the all-new ones finally come out, and I absolutely LOVE the new looks!
