Update-11/19: I spoke to a contact (referred by my friend) from a different dealer, they don't have the exact information for allocation, but they are taking deposit for a factory pre-order. they will get delivery and manufacture information update (now, they don't really have timing expectation) after thanks giving.
THEY DONT MARK-UP MRSP
BUT -> non-refundable deposit (1000)
BUT -> one mandatory add-on (dealer) - around (1000)
--- mandatory package == indirect markup---
Getting a Base with shift knob added -> Around 33.5k ALL-IN after-tax.
if anyone interested, PM me, will share the contact privately.
Frankly, zero mark-up and no additional mandatory/required package/option will be ideal.
Update-12/11: dealer managed to get one initial allocation with the exact spec I wanted.
ETA to port: beginning Jan.2022
ETA delivery: mid to end of Jan.
I got the VIN number, now its in the shipment to the port (NJ).
Car arrived at the NYNJ port going through custom, should be arriving to the dealer soon
