I am not aware of how many Charles Barker is getting initially, other than (as of last week) there is one pre-order. First Team did not give the impression there is a waiting list (yet); the internet sales person stated they would receive two FRS in the initial shipment, both whiteout. One is automatic, the other manual. The odd thing with the quote I received is that the MSRP for the whiteout auto was $26,412 (excluding tax, title, doc fee, etc). I understand there is a cost upgrade for whiteout but 400 bucks??

Sorry to resurrect this thread back from the dead. I'm trying to get a feel for the current state of the market in Virginia. I live in Norfolk, but I'm willing to drive to Richmond or DC to save a few thousand dollars. I've talked with a few dealers in the Hampton Roads area, and their introductory quotes have been anywhere from MSRP to 5000 over MSRP. After doing some research on Edmunds and KBB, it seems the average transaction price is in the mid 27s for this area. I realize I can't get the same deal on a BRZ as I might able to get on a Forester, but I'd still like to get the best deal I can. Does anyone have any dealership recommendations? I haven't seen RK, Perry, or Casey listed on the dealer blacklist. If all goes well, I'll be selling my S2000 soon and moving on to a BRZ in time for the 2014 autocross season. I may even get a race or two in this year.

You know what the MSRP is, poke around at a dealer with one, and don't accept blatant markup. Not saying there isn't fees and processing and all that jazz, but just profit markup. Easy to find.

RK is on my blacklist. I put a deposit down with them which they tried to screw me out of after I ended up buying elsewhere.

To be fair, it was really the sales lady that was the issue; once I got ahold of the dealership's CTO, they processed the refund very quickly and professionally.

There's a WRB limited for $26k at elite auto. It has 6000 miles. If you're okay with something used that is.

Thanks for all the replies. Oddly enough, RK has been the most receptive so far. I checked on true car and their target price was somewhere in neighborhood of 35 grand. At that point, I'm close to used Cayman shopping.

Would you mind telling me where in the mountains? A weekend trip to Charlottesville or Lexington to pick up a BRZ sounds like a good time.

In the Baltimore area, one dealer quoted me $1,000 below MSRP for Limited and another (who I purchased from) quoted me $500 over invoice. If I recall that was about a $200 difference in my favor.

That was last week. The challenge is finding the remaining 2013 in the trim/options you want.

I bought mine at Shelor Motor Mile in Christiansburg, VA. I live in Blacksburg, recently graduated Virginia Tech. MSRP for my FR-S was $25,654 and I paid just under $25k.

Casey's sales department is on my shit list. They wanted $35,000 for an autotragic BRZ limited.

I drove up to nova and bought my BRZ limited (albeit used) there. The dealerships down in this area are full of assclown salesmen who prey on the military folk who have money burning a hole in their pockets after a deployment.

That may be it actually. I know they went bankrupt and the dealers and manufacturers revived the program. I'm not sure when it happened though.

I emailed Casey. The originally quoted 5k over MSRP. They have since responded with $500 over MSRP. I told them thank you, but I will look elsewhere.

Thanks for the tips on DC area dealers. I'll have to check cars.com as I get closer to my purchase date.

After a lot of time and research, I've found that the best place to buy a BRZ in Hampton Roads is actually Colorado Springs. Like 86 other forum members, I've ordered my BRZ from Clint at Heughberger Motors. Even with shipping, I was able to save around $2000 compared to the best offer I got from a local dealership. RK had a slightly better offer than Casey. I never got a firm offer from Perry. A salesman called me up after I had already put my deposit down with Clint. When I told him I had already ordered a BRZ, he asked what they had to do to beat their price. I told him the price I got from Heughberger, and I never heard back.
I'm signing the papers tomorrow, and the car should be here in a few weeks. I'd recommend Clint and Heughberger to anyone in Virginia looking to pick up a BRZ.
