1 month wait so far for an XR8 isn't that bad. 2 1/2 month wait so far by my XR6T is bad (goes into production today
but I've heard horror stories for long waits for the T's (some wating 4-5 months). Not the XR8's. From what I read/see 8 or so weeks seems to be the general wait for an XR8 on order with various options. I've also noticed that there are heaps of XR8's on the ford lots that aren't getting sold.. Did you try to get your dealer to try and source a similar spec to what you wanted from another dealer? Oh well. Let's hope for your sake that you are are over the half way mark for waiting. Don't forget to get regular updates from your dealership. It seems that the way that some dealerships work is extremely inefficient and your order can sometimes be "forgotten" in the pile of orders they get.
