Okay, here is the story...
I ordered a 2006 galaxy grey civic EX with navigation for about 21k out the door. This was October 26th I am still waiting today and just got my VIN a couple days ago. Long story short they first gave a deadline of December then called and moved it to "middle of Jan." obviously it is past this date and the car still needs to ship from Canada. Iv'e been cool with it until...

Sent an e-mail saying I'm interested in foglights being included. This is what I said...

Hey ****,
I am interested in getting the factory fog lights through you. Before I came to you at Muller I had an offer from Rosen for the same price with the fog lights, but my father told me to check you guys out first since he knew Mr. *******. I would appreciate if you would honor the same deal with the fog lights being included in price we have already set.
I would also like to mention that although Muller has missed the original deadline twice and I'm starting to feel like I have been waiting a long time for this car, the fact that you have been keeping me up to date on all progress has kept me with you. I think if you car put this deal together for me we will have a good standing relationship in which I will feel comfortable letting my friends, family, and customers know how good of a deal I got.Thanks.

This is what he wrote back (I think he took my e-mail as an insult.)

**** here, thank you very much for your response. However I personally feel that we delivered what we promised. We are honoring the same price for the car, and most of all we did get you the car you wanted (color, equipment, etc.). So if you think that the deal we agreed upon would prevent us from good standing relationship, we will refund your deposit and make the Civic available for sale. Talk to you soon.

Needless to say I feel a little insulted and in no way did I try to insult him. They gave me a decent deal (not spectacular, but good.) and I was just being a good consumer and asking for a little something extra because Iv'e been waiting for about 4 MONTHS! am I the one in the wrong here?

19,500 with nav and fogs out the door? C'mon guys.

SSlick406 - He's in a power situation. He knows you've been waiting, and the car will arive. He also knows he can put the car up for sale and have no problem selling it for probably more than what you guys agreed upon. If you can get that deal with fogs at another dealer - go get it. I'm just guessing you'll have to wait longer on getting it.

There are so many people on a waiting list near me it's not even funny. The next SI to arrive is scheduled for 3+ months from now at my closest dealership (charging msrp on all SI's - no lower).

I wouldn't take it as a big insult. He's basically being a dealer. He knows you want the car, and he doesn't have to offer you any more incentives. If you don't want it - he has others I'm sure that are willing to pay for it.

I hate waiting....

It looks like it'll be March or April before I get my Si. Unless I get really lucky which I'm still kinda hoping for. I just wish that Honda would have stepped up production a little. Maybe enough people will ***** about the lack of availibility and they'll actually make enough Civics for the consumers.

The waiting will be worth it. I ordered my Magnetic Pearl Hybrid on Sept. 22. It came in on the 6th of January, and I picked it up on the 10th. Couldn't be happier with it! I'm glad I held out for it, and didn't take another more available color.
