raw deal-i need desperate help!!!

The dealer I'm working with is not being very straight forward with me.

1. They won't give me an offer sheet, saying that they have had many customers tkae that sheet and take it to other dealers. Do you give offer sheets?

2. They won't give me a production number, even after repeatedly asking for one. Client advisor says I don't need it and that he can check up the status for me every week. He says that I could take that production number and take it to another dealer who can "steal that allocation #" from them. That totally does not make sense, could you please clarify?

3. How do I get my deposit back if they refuse to do so?

4. Who should sign the offer sheet, the sales manager correct?

I am VERY VERY grateful for your help. This buying experience definitely has not been good.

I might not being getting my 325Ci as soon as I thought.

I placed my order without a signed offer sheet. We agreed to a price, he ran a tape on a calculator and initialled it and initialled my calculation sheet with the words "final drive away price". I was a little concerned that this is all I had, but he did give me the production number, and a copy of the order form (which includes my name), so I'm comfortable that it is my car.

I'd say, at the very least, make sure you get the production number and make sure they've ordered what you want. If you haven't ordered Titanium Silver or Black (the most common colors) and have an odd mix of options, you can be comfortable that the car wouldn't be an easy sell for them if they don't honor your deal.

Also, call the dealer a lot about status and you'll get more comfortable that they'll honor the deal.
