Ordering Process Questions - Just Ordered First Mustang
I just ordered my first Mustang from a local dealer - a 2011 v6 Premium Convertible in Race Red, with automatic transmission (never learned to drive stick) and rear camera, but not much else for options.
The ordering process seemed a bit odd - after we settled on what I wanted and we had the Vehicle Order Confirmation printout (though apparently taken while the screen was still at 'press F4 to Submit'), they ran my credit, and I made a $500 deposit (with only the credit card receipt to show for it). We had agreed upon price before the deposit, written on this confirmation printout with mine and the dealer's initials by it - hardly binding, I know. Other than my own initials on this printout (none of this paper was made for signatures), the only other stuff I signed was the CC receipt and the credit-report related paperwork.
Does this sound normal? Was there other paperwork that should have been signed? Just want to make sure this was a normal method of handling the order.
I'm very nervous in general about this - I think the color I chose, Race Red, makes me the most nervous. It will be an attention grabber, but I hope it doesn't attract too much of the wrong kind of attention. Now that I've ordered, I'm unsure. If I'm still feeling this nervous in the morning, I might call the dealer and ask them to change it to White (if it's not too late).
Finally, I'm getting a dealer installed alarm - same one they install on all the vehicles in their lot, and offer to remove when you buy. I was led to believe the Security Package alarm won't detect anyone messing with the top. Alternatively I could have an after market one installed; I haven't committed to having the alarm put in.
Any advice would be appreciated!
