Since Kia hasn't updated their site and there is no config script/pricing etc for the 5 door, does anyone have idea if the leather package works the same as it does for the sedan (you have to get a moonroof as well, thus jacking up the price.)?

And as far as ordering a specific car, anyone here care to share their experiences in doing that?

I've only ever purchased 2 cars new so my experience is limited, and I just took what they had on the lot that appealed to me. As it is I cannot find what I want in my region. Any insight is appreciated.

TIA

I was told by a few So Cal dealers that I could not order a car. They just got what came off the ship. I ended up settling by getting the Koup I have but I don't regret it.
Hmmm that doesn't bode well, I've scoured many of the dealers in the southland and not found anything I really want. I wonder who has the manifest of what came off that ship... maybe a call to Irvine ;)

Just so everyone knows...I worked as a Salesman at Mark Kia in Scottsdale and yes... you CAN order what you want. It takes 10-12 weeks but you can order. The reason the dealership says no is the they have a stair-step program with KIA and the get better pricing on cars that are in holding facilities in various places. You pay the same price but the dealer gets a better price (more profit for them). If anyone wants to order a car just let me know and I will give you the number to Jorge who is the Southwest regional Manager. He is a friend of mine as well
Yes thanks! I may just take you up on this...

Just be prepared to pay sticker!!!!!
Hmmm... mebbe not then.

Well as it is I have looked far and wide for the color, trim and options (almost none...) that I desire and it does not exist in this country that I can ascertain, so I'll probably cool my heels for a little while and allow the inventory to build maybe over the next few months or if I just can't wait any longer take a second choice package after I get some things in order.
