So is it worth it to spend an extra $2000 + $500 deposit loss ($2500) for a car or wait? I don't have the extra cash to sling.
Dealers will NOT trade with each other and if they do, they UP the fee of the car. It is SO frustrating.
This type of scenario is why I didn't order my WRX even though the Subaru dealer closest to my house tried to get me to do so. My thoughts were that I would probably find a WRX at a dealership close to me sooner than I would receive one by ordering and waiting 4 months or more. Sure enough, after only a week and a half of checking dealer inventory online every day I found the exact WRX that I was looking for at a dealership only 40 miles from my house and I contacted them right away to let them know I was coming to check it out. In your case however, I don't know that it would be worth $2,500 in order to get the car a few months earlier. Just wait it out and at least you will know you are getting the exact car that you want for a good price and that you are the only person (aside from the dealership tech) to ever drive it!
