I also could not decide at first, but at the end I went with luxury model. I really like the espresso wood and 18 way adjustable seats. Plus, It comes with S+ mode, for those special times when you want to have some fun with the car.

Just waiting on some figures so I can get to the bottom of the negotiation and see what the deal is...

I got an email about 10:00 last night from my salesman saying he had been with someone all day which is why he couldn't get to me, but promised he would this morning...waiting on an email from someone at another dealer as well...

I really hate to go in until I have all the figures and everything so I can sit here and do my own analysis...

I have to agree with this guy I kind of wish I had seen your combination. I really love the F-Sport's exterior but the interior of the one I was in didn't do it for me. Espresso wood trim and flaxen sold me the first time I saw it. They also let me keep it for a day to test drive. I didn't even look into other combination on F-Sport. Maybe I should have.

Finally got some figures, they're still sticking to the .0020 money factor which I'm pressing on now, and theres $30 in the payment I can't account for in my calculations (always is)...

Waiting to hear from another dealer too...keep y'all posted...

Are you buying or leasing? Just curious since that MF is too high for lease.

Leasing...yeah .0020 is way too high for a lease.

Quick question. Just spoke to dealer two...he's saying theres a residual difference on the luxury car vs the premium car, dealer 1 has not said that, he's using a 60% residual value on the luxury car, dealer 2 says its 57%.

His MF's are better, .0070 for the premium...but .0007 for the luxury...

Has anyone else seen the same thing on the luxury package with the residual?
