When I ordered my 21' Scat, I did the math. 0% financing for 60 months (no rebate) vs 3k rebate (and having to finance the car @ 2.5% APR for 60 months). Total out of pocket was almost exactly the same so I told the dealer I would order the car as long as he got me one or the other. Didn't really care. He got me the 3k Rebate. Done deal. ;)
That's the best case scenario but it has it's drawbacks - you save nothing by paying it off early (or doubling up payments at the beginning).

Absolutely correct. Actually, I was just going to write a check for the car but my investment advisor told me to leave my $ invested and pay the 2.5% APR. The invested funds will return more than that.

Congratulations. Love the Hellraisin!
What is the reason for deleting the rear seat? Just curious.

I hope your wait isn't too bad.

Thanks!

1. Aint nobody sitt'n in the back of this car except my dog, a cooler of beer or my guitar.
2. It's the Van Halen brown M&M contract rider. I know the car was made for me, it shut the dealer down, trying to find one similar on a lot somewhere to suffice (two dealers didn't even know it was an option, lol) etc..
3. I never plan to sell this.....so not having a back seat isn't an issue on resale 'value'. Could bite my ass, but I don't care. :D

I've been checking this thread everyday like a weather report and will continue to do so...so their 6-8 week reply I can keep in mental check for a more realistic due date.

One thing to consider with the seat delete is noise. The back seat provides a good bit of sound insulation and without it you will notice a lot more road and exhaust noise. But no doubt it looks cool.

Congrats man! I know the excitement and anticipation of the build/wait for your new ride, as mine finally arrived 5 days ago during a blizzard! I had to do some research on the whole Van-Halen colored [email protected]'s thing (interesting story BTW) to catch what your saying, hope they don't "F" it up and leave the drivers seat out instead!!!:ROFLMAO: How much did that option save you???

Good to see your first post. Congrats on pullin' the trigger on the Scat. Nice set up list. I am in week 10 of waitin' on mine. Also a Scat WB Shkr. Dealer is sayin' mid March before I get it. Over 3 months! Hope your wait is shorter! And yes, definitely pics when it does show. Love the Hellraisin!

Looking at my window sticker online, it seems like technology group is missing the rain sensitive wipers.. probably because of the chip shortage. Everything else looks fine.

Do you have any update? Still in D1?

I’m Canadian and my last week order (2021-02-09) was already in D1 with a VIN on Monday (2021-02-15)... it’s a 2021 but not a Scat Pack... so I don’t know the reason why some members are delayed... I’m not sure anymore about which country or model is getting BX...
Just a heads up. I've messaged support for an update and the only message they will give me now is "all parts have been received & it will be entering the build process soon." They refuse to make any other statement. I'm not concerned as my order is new, but just wanted to give you an update.

Got my window sticker about 10 days ago. The rain sense wipers are listed under the Tech Grp on it. Odd they aren't on yours. Still, dealer says it will be mid March before it comes in. Can't wait. :p

Canada does some funny stuff.

Not sure about other models but a Hellcat with cloth seats they call a Hellcat SE, and a Hellcat with leather they call a Hellcat Plus.
