I am not a dealer and I don't work for one. I work for Ford at a design studio in Irvine Ca. which allows me to give anyone here an X-plan pin number which will allow you to buy a new Ford car or truck for 4% over dealer cost from any dealershipin the U.S. I am not trying to sell anything, but if anyone needs a new truck, this is a great deal. I am just trying to hook-up fellow MC owners. Just let me know if anyone is interested.

I'm looking at buying a ford cargo van right now. Not sure what discount they are giving me, I usually get an E plan ( employees????) as I do all the painting for this local dealership. If you think the X plan will save me any more money, I'd like to talk to you. :wavey:

Hey thanks! I hope to get a new Super Duty next year.

I bought on the X plan 3 years ago and the deal they offer is the best by far, plus you are still elgible for all the rebates etc on top.

3 years ago I spent $40 to join the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) just to get the X Plan pricing. I let my membership lapse and now they require you to belong for 12 months before you are elgible for the X Plan.

I am a Design Modeler. I work with a designer and create concept cars. I worked on the concept cars for the new Mustang and Shelby Cobra. Yeah, it is a cool job.

Mag Red,
Let me know what you are looking for. X-plan can save you 3-5 thousand depending on model and engine. I looked one up at a dealership out here and for a 2005 E-350 SD extended with the 6.8 V10. The MSRP was 35,285 and X-plan was 31,080.

looking at a E-150 cargo van......no extras except maybe the 4.8L engine. No air....my guys can sweat it out :D

The cheapest one I could find was 24,943. I think it is the E-150 with a 5.4l engine. I didnt see any with the 4.6l. It all depends on the dealer you go to.
I am getting these prices from actual dealer inventories here in California. I cannot look up inventories in other states. Your prices may be cheaper. The pin number I give you will work in all states.

My guy is quoting about 18,500 for the van..........I'll ask him if it's any cheaper on the X plan. I'm pretty sure he's pretty close to what you would get. Earlier this year I was looking at a F-150 Lariet that stickered at 37,500.........my cost was going to be 26,500 or 27,500!

That's awesome! I probably saw you on TV. They had the Cobra build-up on TV about a month ago or so...

I was in that show. Do you remember the part when we were fitting the hood and it didn't fit? That was me with the white shirt and the Fox hat on backwards. My 5 minutes of fame.

How many Pins do you get per year? I'm thinking of buying a new mustang, and might be interested in one.

I'm guessing around $2,500........not a lot of mark-up on Cargo Vans. The van came with air and the 4.8 L V8........I would have deleted the air if I could have. :D

H20skeefreek,
I get 8 X-plan pins this year and I have 4 left. It'll be hard to find a dealer that will honor a X-plan on a new Mustang. Remember, Dealers don't work for Ford. They are private companies that sell our vehicles. They do not have to honor the X-plan. If you know a dealer personally you might be able to get a hot vehicle like that.

2 dealers have already told me no problem, just have to talk the wife into it. I'll probably wait till March or April, then all dealers will be accepting it.
