Re: Just ordered!

Whatever the wait is, it's going to be too long because you'll see people driving theirs around. Human nature! he he

Re: Just ordered!

I would say at least two months would be more if it was an auto.

Fullthrottle,

What options to you get? The time taken for delivery can be affected by the options you order.
Did you end up getting a factory sports bar?

Well that would probably explain your scratches, as every man and his dog would have probably climbed over it as it was the biggest and newest thing in the Ford showrooms. Must have been a VERY early build and probably rushed through to get it into the showroom. Wouldn't surprise me if somebody even forced the glovebox open and snapped it's retainer. I'm not trying to make excuses for Ford, there is no excuse for selling a lemon. What I am trying to do is rationalise so I can stop being scared and depressed.

fullthrottle,

Has your dealer issued you a SIDO number. This is the number used to identify your car throughout the scheduling and production process. You can expect delivery to take about 6-8 weeks from the time you have this number. You MUST hassle your dealer daily until you do get this number. XR8 utes seem to be very popular at the moment and even a citric acid one that was sitting at a local dealer for months was sold quite recently. All bodes well for resale.

All dealers I've spoken to talk of long waits and salespeople generally will tell you a shorter time than what it will take. One dealer told me in late April to expect August delivery. A couple of days later he revised this to eight weeks. I ordered on April 30 and the ute was finished late yesterday so eight weeks was pretty optimistic to say the least. Depends on dealer allocations but they do seem to be in limited supply as only 50 Boss engines are made a day and these are to go into GT's as well.

SO get that SIDO and hold on.
