My understanding is that each dealership has an allocation of cars that they have to sell. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Also, would a car being in or out of a dealer's allocation affect my chances of negotiating a price? Thanks.

allocation are simply not yet built cars that are "allocated" to specific dealers. So for example if I have 5 allocations for 135's, then I have 5 135's that I can either custom order , use for ED or will eventually just make to our center as general inventory. Once we use up those allocations, I have to trade with another center to get one to sell.

I think if you use any of the CA's available here on this board, your prcing will be straightforward, no matter where the allocation is coming from.
