Long wait for BA XR8 Ute (auto)

How long have any of you guys had to wait for XR8 (auto)? and do all XR's go through FPV or only the obvious GT's GTP's & Pursuit utes.

Thats what I thought Sir_Boost but what about bolting on 18" wheels? (Surely that option could be done at Ford.)

And to those that go across the road to another dealership to only discover heavily discounted cars!

I ordered my XR8 auto in January and should get it next week. I believe that all XR's are now fully assembled at Broadmeadows. This wasn't the case until recently. This was done to free up time and space for the FPV range.

I ordered my XR8 ute in October last year with the 18" wheels and they had a hold up with the autos which everyone knew about. The delivery date was suppose to be early this month now they have had some drama with the Boss engines and it looks like being early next month. Meanwhile my AU2 XR8 ute seems to be losing value pretty quick so I hope it's not to much LONGER before the new one ARRIVES!!!

As I said before this has changed as recently as the last few weeks. All XR's are built on line at Broadmeadows.
