Hey Mike -
I was considering the same thing. My car is on the water but I called CarsDirect anyway. They said that they would call my dealer on it but were afraid that they would screw up my deal.
In other words, they would call my dealer telling him that the car I had negotiated a price on and ordered from them was going to be purchased for about $1,700 less. The CarsDirect rep said that they would do it, but 1. were doubtful that the dealer would go for it, and 2. were afraid that if he didn't go for it that it would cause bad feelings between the dealer and their company.
What have you heard? Have you called them? I'm curious - keep me posted!
