Also just slide the Horsepower slide thing all the way to the right to 505hp and it will only show QV/Quads.

Is it possible to check the built date per VIN number?

Thanks

I live in the Bay Area and also found incompetence and/or arrogance at several dealers. However, the San Francisco dealer told me it would be no problem to do a custom order for a Qdrfgl. And I got MSRP, with no additional premium tacked on.

And I see no 2018s except Stelvios. I don't expect to pay any more than a few grand markup, if that. I already indicated to my salesman that I can bailout and go to Miller or Herb Chambers and put another deposit down for MSRP and still pay less than that kind of markup. Just like ordering out of state and shipping. My salesman has already earned some mark up, but nothing in the order of 5-10 grand. Now there is some market for convenience, and cost of living, and the geographic thing. That even effects your labor rates at service. Here outside of Boston on the AutoMile, you will see some market increase. Just look at gas prices is swanky Dover outside of 128/I95. Premium gas is still almost $4 a gallon! But back to Quads, I have some other ideas to negotiate off of the mark up. It may or may not fly but if the squeeze me, I walk. Things should be OK. I just spoke to my broker today and took some pressure off. Also, I saw 3 Quads in the Boston Area. 2 at Herb Chamber, 1 at Kelly. Not to my liking with boring interiors. If fact, the Vulcano Black one may be the same one that's been there since the winter! I sat it one and salesman started it up for me. It looks exactly the same. Maybe not, that one had red stitching but did sit a while.

On US-spec cars, you can check the build date on the door jamb sticker. There will be a month/year mfr. date, plus a MDH code, which stands for Month-Date-Hour. Euro-spec Giulias don't have either. On the cars I've seen, the date in the MDH code is 1 day earlier than the completion date registered in FCA's database, so that label is probably printed and affixed to the car somewhere along the assembly line rather than at the end. If you just have the VIN, send me a PM and I can check the date for you.

For the OP, be mindful that California may have some restrictions on bringing in a new vehicle from out-of-state.

Would you mind sharing the link?

Thanks in advance


Go to "Build & Price" and configure the car you want. When done click on "Search new inventory" and it will show exact and partial matches within certain miles of your zip code. The max range for searching is 200 miles from the zip code, so you may have to try different zip codes to search distant dealers. It is a little time consuming, but that is how I found mine 1,500 miles away. Good luck!

After dealing with the Bay Area Dealers myself I have decided to follow the lead of another forum member and try Cartelligent to locate a 2017 Q or order a 2018.

This is insane...just gives CA dealers leverage to screw us even more. Why would the same vehicle have different CO2 footprint @CA and, let say, CO?
Looks like in 10 years we won't have a choice but to drive Bolt..or Tesla (if still will be around)...
