Unfortunately, I'm not getting one, but I just visited my salesman and I asked about pricing.

He said they'll do the Bullitt at X plan (or Z if you can get that). If you don't have a pin for X plan, he can probably help you with that. Send me a PM and I'll put you in touch with him. Although the dealership is in Orlando, it can be ordered through him and delivered at any Ford dealer nearest you. Unless you want to come to sunny Orlando and enjoy a road trip back in your new Bullitt! Hope this helps someone.

Oh, they have a new '07 Shelby GT white 5spd on the lot for 37,500 if anyone is interested.

a,z, and d plan are the same price...about 4% below invoice. A plan is Ford employees, Z plan are retired Ford employees, and D plan are dealership employees from a Blue Oval certified dealer. (I think that is all correct)

X plan is friend and family and the price is just a few dollar less than invoice, but the dealer can't add on their dealership prep fees and other add ons. And with these plans, if there are any rebates available you get those as well.

OK, that makes sense. Or at least it's a code that is logical.

So, if I get a dealer to discount a 08 Bullitt say $3000.00 from sticker as the selling price I'm doing VARY GOOD! X plan or not, right?

That info is not correct. x plan is 4% OVER invoice. A plan is 2% OVER invoice.
Here's some more info-

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS AND ELIGIBILITY


X-Plan

Friends & Neighbors:

An eligible Ford employee or retiree as noted below may sponsor up to four (4) PINs per calendar year to be used towards the purchase or lease of a new vehicle.

Selected individuals sponsored by a Ford Motor Company employee such as an extended family member (other than those identified as "immediate family members" referenced under Program Descriptions and Eligibility – AZ-Plan), friend or neighbor.
Sponsors must know the individuals they are sponsoring.




3. PROOF OF ELIGIBILITY



Purchasers are not required to provide proof of eligibility at time of sale beyond providing their PIN and last 4 digits of Social Security Number. However, the company reserves the right to perform audits of AXZ-Plan sales and may require employees or retirees to provide proof of relationship documentation.


4. PRODUCTS
Eligible Products

Current Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover and Mazda model and prior model year vehicles sold in the United States. See your local dealer for vehicle eligibility.
Vehicles may be ordered from production or, if the dealer agrees, may be selected from the inventory of the dealership. Dealers are not required to participate, but if they do, they must be an authorized Ford Motor Company dealer for the product sold and agree to abide by the New Vehicle Purchase Program guidelines set forth in this document.
New prior model year vehicles may be purchased or leased up to the date of “final pay" for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury products under the AXZ-Plans and for Jaguar and Land Rover products under the AZ-Plans. Prior model year vehicles may be purchased or leased while supplies last for Jaguar and Land Rover products under the X-Plan and Volvo products under the AXZ-Plans. See your selling dealer for details.

5. PROGRAM POLICIES

Customer/Sponsor Obligations and Rules

Sponsors are responsible for managing their PIN allocation and making sure the customers follow the rules. If a customer fails to follow the rules (including the length of ownership requirements), the Sponsor’s Plan eligibility is at risk. Therefore, if Sponsors cannot answer all of the following questions, as indicated, it is advised that they do not sponsor the customer.


· Is the customer someone you feel you know and can trust? YES

· Did a dealership employee refer this customer to you? NO

· Are you receiving or being offered cash or gifts to sponsor an X-Plan customer? NO

· Is the customer a government employee or official whose use of the Plan may be construed as influencing a public official? NO



It is a direct violation of the program rules to provide PINs to customers referred to the sponsor by a dealership employee or to use a dealership employee as a broker to locate AXZ-Plan customers. In other words, you may not use a dealership or dealership employee to find customers, and you may not sell PINs to a dealership or dealership employee. In fact, selling PINs to anyone is a violation of Plan rules and is strictly prohibited. Violations of these rules will result in suspension of AXZ-Plan eligibility and may result in termination of employment with the Company.
Vehicles purchased or leased by customers sponsored by an employee, retiree, or surviving spouse count against the number of vehicle sales which an employee, retiree or surviving spouse may sponsor during any calendar year.
Any solicitation or acceptance of money, items of value or discounts off the New Vehicle Purchase Program price not defined in this document from a dealership or anyone connected with or acting on behalf of the dealership in connection with the purchase or lease of a vehicle under the New Vehicle Purchase Program, is contrary to the Plan's provisions and to Company policy and is prohibited.
If after ordering a vehicle under the terms of the New Vehicle Purchase Program, the customer cannot take delivery from the designated dealership, the customer must promptly advise the proper dealership representative, and the customer must refrain from signing any dealership document indicating acceptance or delivery of the vehicle.
AXZ-Plan customers are required to arbitrate warranty-related disputes via the Dispute Resolution Program (DRP) before initiating or proceeding with legal action. Failure to seek resolution of warranty-related disputes via the DRP before initiating legal action may result in the suspension of Purchase Plan privileges for sponsor.
The Dispute Resolution Program (DRP) process is a cost-free program available to owners or lessees of qualifying Ford Motor Company vehicles. The program is independently owned administered by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Service or product performance complaints involving Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln cars, vans, sport utilities and light trucks, which are within the terms of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, are eligible for DRP review. The Warranty Guide provided with all new Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles at delivery contains important information about customer assistance and the Dispute Resolution Program. For more information about the program, call the BBB Auto Line at 1-800-428-3718, or the Ford Customer Relationship Center at 1-800-392-3673.
Failure to seek resolution of warranty-related disputes via the DRP process before initiating legal action may result in the suspension of Purchase Plan privileges (as noted under "What if a Customer Ignores the Conditions?").


Dealership Obligations and Rules

Participating dealerships agree to comply with all of the terms outlined in this document, including the Red Carpet Lease Option provisions. Authorized Ford, Lincoln-Mercury, Jaguar, Volvo, Land Rover, and Mazda dealerships are encouraged, but not obligated, to participate in the New Vehicle Purchase Program. Participating dealerships must sign a Dealer Agreement located on the AXZD-Plan Pricing Agreement on each New Vehicle Purchase Program sale or Red Carpet Lease.
Dealerships must be authorized dealers ("under their Sales and Service Agreement(s)") for the product being sold.
The AXZD-Plan Pricing Agreement must identify the AZ or X-Plan price, the price of each dealer-added option, negative equity or over-allowance on trade, gifts, and any other allowable fees and taxes. A copy of the factory invoice showing the New Vehicle Purchase Program price in the box labeled ”AZ-Plan" or “X-Plan (not displayed for Jaguar, Land Rover, or Mazda (S-Plan)) and a completed, signed copy of the AXZD-Plan Pricing Agreement must be given to the customer.
All commission claims are subject to future audit and possible charge back to the dealership. Participating Dealerships agree to make available such dealership records to the extent considered necessary by Ford Motor Company for audit of the transactions claimed under the New Vehicle Purchase Program. Dealers must retain all records and documents, including the AXZD-Plan Pricing Agreement, journals and ledgers, which relate in any way, in all or in part, to covered transactions- for at least two years.
All sales or lease contracts with Purchase Plan customers will be conducted by an employee of the participating dealership. Commissions to dealerships will be withheld or charged back if non-employees, including brokers, or agents are used to participate in Plan transactions in any capacity.


What if a Customer Ignores the Conditions?



The Company cannot ignore abuse of the New Vehicle Purchase Program. Plan abuse may cost the Company inappropriate dealer commission payments. Those unnecessary payments impact all Company employees because the payments detract from Company profits, which provide a basis for future product programs, capital expenditures and, of course, profit sharing.
The purchase, lease and disposal of vehicles under the New Vehicle Purchase Program are monitored regularly for abuse through a computerized system. Customers who do not comply with the requirements noted above will be contacted and asked to explain the circumstances involved.
The privilege to participate may be withdrawn or suspended if the Company determines that the employee, retiree or surviving spouse has violated the provisions of the New Vehicle Purchase Program or Company policy. The employee, retiree or surviving spouse may be required to reimburse the Company for the full amount of the dealer commission paid. In addition, the employee may be subject to disciplinary action, including termination of employment.


NOTE: Even if the customer who violates these provisions is not a Company employee, the sponsoring employee, retiree or surviving spouse is responsible and subject to the above sanctions.

· The dealer is required to provide you with a true copy of the factory invoice showing the New Vehicle Purchase Program price on the line labeled AZ-Plan and/or X-Plan (not displayed for Jaguar and Land Rover, labeled as "S-Plan" for Mazda). You should also receive a complete and signed AZXD-Plan Pricing Agreement showing each item and its price. Do not sign this form if it is blank or if you do not understand how the price was calculated. All added items must be documented on this form, including negative equity or over-allowance on trade, and gifts.

· The AXZ-Plan price is the amount shown in the box labeled "AZ-Plan" or “X-Plan” near the bottom of the factory invoice (not displayed for Jaguar and Land Rover, labeled as "S-Plan" for Mazda). The New Vehicle Purchase Program price includes advertising, finance costs, transportation, fuel charges and Company administrative fees. The dealership may not charge extra for these items.

· The New Vehicle Purchase Program customer is entitled to the price in effect at the time the vehicle was invoiced. Any money refunded to the dealer by Ford Motor Company for price increases occurring after the order is submitted, but before shipment to the dealer, must be refunded to the customer.

· From time to time the Company may offer incentives or rebates. Unless specifically excluded by the Company, incentives or rebates are available to New Vehicle Purchase Program customers in addition to the Plan price. Ask your dealer for details.



Trade-in Allowance

· Trade-in allowance is not covered by the New Vehicle Purchase Program and must be negotiated with the dealership. However, this must be documented on the AZXD-Plan Pricing Agreement form.



X-Plan Pricing Formula

· X-Plan is a pre-determined price based on dealer invoice or A-Plan price depending on brand. The X-Plan price is noted on the dealer invoice (except for Land Rover and Jaguar).

X-Plan
























Ford/Mercury
Dealer Invoice - 0.4% of Invoice + $75 Administration Fee (see sample invoice)

Lincoln
Dealer Invoice + 0.6% of Invoice + $75 Administration Fee (see sample invoice)

Volvo
AZ-Plan + 2% of AZ-Plan

Land Rover
Dealer Invoice + 4% of Invoice (excluding Regional Advertising Group fee and destination & delivery fee)

Jaguar
Dealer Invoice + 4% of Invoice (excluding Advertising Association Fee and destination & delivery fee)



Mazda

S- Plan

The Mazda S-Plan price is equal to the total dealer invoice amount. It is listed in the lower left corner of the factory invoice as "S-PLAN". This is the same price that the dealer pays for the vehicle. Mazda pays the dealer a commission on each S-Plan sale.









7. PROCESS AND DOCUMENTATION



Sales and Delivery Requirements



The dealership may require the New Vehicle Purchase Program customer to make a deposit when placing a vehicle order. Some or all of this deposit may be retained by the dealership if the customer declines to accept delivery of the product ordered. An agreement in writing should be reached with the dealership concerning the amount of the deposit and the conditions under which it may be retained by the dealership if the transaction is not completed.
Lease transactions may require a refundable security deposit. The security deposit is held until the end of the lease and is refunded, provided that the lease terms have been satisfied. The deposit is usually equal to one month's payment, rounded to the next $25.
The dealership may charge any price negotiated (at or above dealer cost) between the dealer and the customer for undercoating, dealer installed options, extended service contracts and other items or services that add value to the vehicle, provided such items are priced separately and listed individually on the retail buyer's order and the AZXD-Plan Pricing Agreement.
· Dealerships will notify the customer as soon as the vehicle has been prepared for delivery. New Vehicle Purchase Program customers must accept delivery and make final settlement within five working days of notification by the dealership that the vehicle is available for delivery. Unless otherwise agreed to between the dealership and the New Vehicle Purchase Program customer, vehicle disposition becomes the sole responsibility of the delivering dealership on the sixth day.



What is a PIN?


A PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a unique numeric code required for each vehicle purchase under the AXZ-Plan. This PIN will be generated by the Ford employee/retiree (sponsor) for either themselves or an eligible family member or friend. The PIN holder will then take this PIN to an authorized Ford Motor Company dealership to secure the AXZ-Plan discount (Mazda Dealership for S-Plan discount).



Using a PIN



Provide your dealer the PIN along with the last 4 numbers of your Social Security Number.
The dealer will enter your PIN and social security number into the computer to verify your eligibility. Once your eligibility has been verified, the dealer can lock in the approval to complete the transaction. (If you decide not to complete the transaction at that dealership, ask the dealer to cancel the locked-in approval so that you can use it elsewhere.)




How Does a Qualified Plan Participant get a VehicleWhen Does Delivery Take Place?



If an eligible family member or friend/neighbor is the customer...



Obtain an approval PIN for your family member or friend/neighbor just as you would for yourself. You will need the correct spelling of the persons name, the last four digits of his/her Social Security Number, address, telephone number, email id (if available), and will be asked to verify his/her eligible family relationship to you. Ensure that the name name/address provided for PIN generation is accurate and verifiable using appropriate personal identification (i.e. driver license). The dealer will require the name/address on the PIN transaction to match the name/address of the purchaser identified on the sales transaction.
Provide your family member or friend/neighbor with the PIN so that the dealer can determine eligibility.
Please inform the family member or friend/neighbor that:
The Plan privilege is for the eligible family member's or friend/neighbor’s personal use only.
The PIN must not, under any circumstances, be provided to any other person, except the dealer at the time of purchase or lease.
Providing the PIN to any other person is a violation of the Plan's conditions.
The family member or friend/neighbor must identify himself/herself as an eligible participant to the dealer and provide the dealer with the last four digits of his/her SSN and PIN for verification. The eligible family member will also be required to specify the relationship that exists with the Employee/Retiree or Surviving Spouse.
Employee/Retiree/Surviving Spouse sponsors are responsible for how their Plan is used by other family members.
For Friend or Neighbor X-plan only - the X-Plan approval PIN may also be issued in the name of a business owned by your friend or neighbor. PINs generated in the name of a business must be obtained through the AXZD Call Center (800) 348-7709. Do not use the web site to generate the PIN. Use the last four numbers of the business Federal Tax ID in lieu of the SSN where requested.
Members



As an AXZ-Plan sponsor, you can enroll individuals eligible for either the AZ or X Friends & Neighbors Program into an exclusive web site www.myplan.ford.com. This web site provides many of the great features and functions you have in www.axz.ford.com including: AXZ-Plan pricing, incentives, special offers, plan rules and the ability to request PINs electronically from you, their sponsor. Your members can also sign-up for email notification of the latest AXZ-Plan offers. This is a great way to introduce your family and friends to the outstanding product offerings available through you as a Ford employee/retiree.

How It Works

Go to the PINs & Members tab of the www.axz.ford.com web site. Select the link for "Tell Your Family and Friends!" You will be taken through a series of screens to enroll your family member or friend. You will be required to provide their name, mailing address and email address along with some product interest information.
At the completion of the enrollment process, your enrollee will be sent an email invitation containing informative information about the Plans and steps to register with the www.myplan.ford.com web site. Your enrollee must complete the registration process to gain access to this web site. Registered members may cancel their registration and/or opt-out of email notifications at any time.
As the registered member's sponsor, you will also have the ability to cancel their registration at any time.
You can also view/edit your enrollee's record from the PINs & Members tab of www.axz.ford.com. Once your enrollee has officially registered, you will have limited edit capability to their record since the member will now be in control of this information.
Registered members may "request" a PIN from you electronically and only for the plan which you have enrolled them in (AZ vs. X Friends & Neighbors). You will be notified of this PIN request through the email address you initially used to register for the www.axz.ford.com web site. This email address can be view/edited through the "MYPROFILE" link in the upper right-hand corner of the home page. Additionally, you will receive a pop-up notifying you of pending PIN requests when you login to the web site.
Responding to the PIN request is simple! The email will provide you the link to complete the process. Alternatively, you can go to the PINs & Members tab of www.axz.ford.com and scroll to the bottom of the page where your members are listed in tabular form. Those with an active PIN request will be identified with two active links to select: "Accept" or "Deny". The member will be sent an email with the PIN if you choose "Accept" or a rejection note if "Deny". You will have the option to add a personal note to the email if you chose. In the case of a denial, we recommend a follow-up contact to assist the member with other alternatives. If your denial is due to a lack of available PINs, contact our call center to discuss possible options.
Note: You will no longer need to request the Social Security Number of your member either in part or whole. The member will provide the last four of their Social Security Number when requesting the PIN through www.myplan.ford.com. When your member goes to the dealership, the sales consultant will require them to provide the PIN and the last four numbers of their Social Security Number to verify their eligibility through our secure PIN database.

19. I'm a U.S. employee and have relatives in Canada. Can I sponsor an AXZ sale for them?

The short answer is yes! If you are a U.S. employee (as identified by your CDS record), retiree, or surviving spouse and you wish to sponsor an AXZ sale through a Canadian dealership, you will need to request an "exception" PIN from our call center. When you contact our call center, be sure to inform the call center representative that you are a U.S. employee and wish to request an "exception" AXZ PIN for use through a Canadian dealership. Generated PINs will count towards your overall yearly allocation of four (4) AZ PINs and four (4) X PINs. These same procedures apply to Canadian employees requesting PINs for use through a U.S. dealership. Note, Ford of Canada maintains their own set of rules for AXZ-Plan. While very similar, differences exist. Canadian rules apply to Canadian PINs. For example, Mazda products are not available on X-Plan in Canada.

21. My 'member' never receives the email invitation when I enroll them.

In rare cases, some ISP's (Internet Service Providers) have spam filters that will block the invitation email broadcasted. If you have confirmed with your family member or friend that they want to receive the invitation, perform the following steps:

Go to your member's table in the "PINs & Members" tab. Select the "edit profile"" link for the enrollee in question and then the "resend invite" link.
When the email address prompt is displayed, enter your email address so you receive the invitation in your email in-box.
When you receive this email in your in-box, forward the email to your enrollee's email address. Before you send the email, be sure to remove the characters, "ADV:" in the subject line of the note.
This will allow your invitation email to be received by your family member or friend.

26. What is the difference between The Friends & Neighbors and Partner Recognition Program?

Both the Friends and Neighbors and Partner Recognition Programs offer the exact same X-Plan pricing on Ford Motor Company vehicles.



The only REAL difference between the programs is in the generation of vehicle purchase/lease PINs and eligibility.



Partner Recognition users are required to generate their own PINs through fordpartner.com (which will require them to get a Partner Code from their HR administrator.) Eligible participants include active employees or organization members, retirees, their spouses and members of their households of selected of tier 1 suppliers, business partners, fleet partners and special organizations having a unique relationship with Ford Motor Company.



The Friends and Neighbors Program requires Ford Employees/Retirees to generate PINs for interested Friends and Neighbors through this site (axz.ford.com). Anyone who can find a Ford Sponsor is eligible to take part in this program.

Whammer, No, you are incorrect. What you posted spells it out. X plan is .4% less than invoice and the dealer is allowed to add up to $75 in doc fees if they want to. I just bought an Expedition on X plan and that was the price.

Ohhhh, I see where I'm making my mistake...if you look x plan up on the web you'll often see it being described as 4% OVER the A-plan pricing. This makes things a bit confusing...not being a math whiz...is 4% over a-plan really the same as 4% less than invoice? And just what is A-plan pricing then? 6% below invoice??

Oh well, bottom line is it's a pretty good deal.
I got my x-plan PIN yesterday and will be going into the dealer today to do my "paperwork". I'll be saving almost $4k off the msrp of the Bullitt- note that this is in Canada.
I got my PIN from blueovalforums- highly recommend you go there if you need one.

No, read it a little closer. X plan is not 4% below invoice it is .4% below invoice + $75 doc fees. A plan is around 4% below invoice. So if invoice is 30,000, then X plan should be $30,000 - .4% = 29,880 + $75 doc fees = $29,955.

I think that math is off a bit... $28,880+75=$28,955... :)

It's really not that big of a deal. I found a guy online, gave him some credentials he needed through email and he got me an x-plan pin and account at ford's x-plan site. Then you just come in, pick the car, give them the pin and go!
