What to ask for on pick up day


Alloy Dave

Recommended Posts

Ok, help me with all the paperwork I should ask for. Mine should be here by Christmas and I want to be prepared.

 

1) Obvious items include the window sticker, all sales invoices, etc.

2) MSO copy (Manufacturer's ??? of Origin?)

3) Can/should I get an Oasis report? Perhaps it will be blank on a new car?

4) Owners manual

5) ???

Ask for the exclusive dealer's vinyl banner in the window if they still have it. (Yellow banner with white/vista blue stripe GT500) I got my dealer's. They were hot on eBay at one point ($250 and up I believe). Mine is going in the garage. I think it would look sharp with a GT500 of the same color scheme, but it appears from your user name that your body color is alloy. Mine is black w/ tungsten, but I'll still hang mine up.

You might ask the dealer run an Oasis BEFORE they report it sold. This will be a one of a kind report--As those run afterwards will show date of sale--that one won't==or email me the serial number and i can run it for you and either email or fax it to you

Just a thought

 

I already gave my banner away to the lady that order my second Gt500--hope she gets her's soon---probably Jan-Feb am tld

I'm not sure if it was a factory option but my car came with 4 locking lug nuts already installed. In the glove box were the 4 lug nuts that were taken off and the key for the locks that were on the wheels in a heavy duty zip lock bag. If someone can confirm that these are a factory option then you'll want to make sure you get the extra lugs and lug key.

Well the 4 locking lug nuts and key were in a sealed plastic bag that was sitting in the car when i got it. They were not already installed. That would lead me to believe they come with them all. Not sure though. I would agree though, make sure to ask for locking lug nutts and lug key.

 

Another thing. If your picking it up from the dealer. Make sure you tell them ahead of time not to install the front bumper liscense plate holder. I could not imagine anyone screwing holes in the front bumper, i would probably cry :cry: . They handed the bracket to me when i picked mine up and said they could not bring themselves to drill the holes.

I bought my 1993 Mustang GT off the lot. It already had the front plate installed. Didn't think much about it. On those you could mount them under the bumper with 2 tabs. When I got home and took it off, the lazy prep guy had driven 2 self-tapping screws right through the front of my new car. I never did get it to look right.

 

"Do not install the front lic plate holder" is the first line on my sales order this time.

 

I asked them to leave the interior untouched and I plan to photograph each piece of paper before I remove it. I went and looked at one a couple of months ago that had been untouched. There were a lot of routing/transport sheets and stuff like that in the car.

:censored: I foget that one

 

along with ask for the the owners manual :finger:

 

I'll go back & edit, thanks :hyper:

 

 

 

..I'll be picking up mine at the rail mixing station, maybe they will let me keep the rail car as a souvenir :hysterical:

 

My stance is, what comes with the car, stays with the car I will take care of my own gas on the drive back to the dealer, and already have all the extras except for a poster or banner. Luckily there's ebay.

He's Ignoring me...... I don't think he wants to get me anything or give me the Banner :cry:

:hysterical:

 

I'm still reading your post. :hysterical2: I'm on #34. :drop:

 

Seriously though, thanks....I've printed a copy and have it in my "PUMPS" emergency kit. It's locked and loaded in my Honda CRV...I'm hoping for a dealer call next week...but trying not to get my hopes up since what has happened to 442olds.

Ok, I'm trying to stay on topic since this is not the "off topic" section. However, I can't help but tell you how good I am at math as has been pointed out in a couple other threads. :hysterical:

 

My fingers hurt from typing those 23 steps (that was a joke, I know I can cut and paste). Hopefully my right foot will be sore in about a week.

Ask to be present for the tank of fuel they will give you.

 

When I went with the GM of the store to fuel up, once we arrived, he attempted to pump 87 octane in the car until I corrected him :stop: and made him put in 93 octane.

 

Heck, it says on the fuel door 91+ octane.

Hi Dave

My dealer did not want me to break the seal on the owners manual as it has the vin# on it and

they told me it would be worth more not opened. They went ahead at their expence and ordered me

another one. Something to think about.

Hope you get your car soon!
