If a particular color I want is not in stock at the dealer, about how long will it take for the vehicle to arrive if I order it?

I was told that if I had a "special order", whatever that is, it would take 90 days. For a "regular order" it was 5-7 weeks.

I assume a special order is, I want a car with THESE features and this color with no substitutes.

I *think* that maybe it works like this:

Once a month they get to put in dealer "preference" requests for "standard build" cars but with specific colors/options requested.

Once a month the computer replies with the delivery dates for the best matches.

If you are lucky, and you request a car just before they get to put in the preference requests, then they _could_ get the car allocated within a week. 5-7 weeks is probably worst case - they just missed doing the preferencing for this month, and then the car you wan't isn't available in the first shipment to that dealer next month.


I could be wrong about this though...

7 weeks for a Silver Middle of the Road IS...ended up getting a loaded SBM...my mid level silver never showed up..they got a base model but never what I ordered.

I am very very pleased with my SBM
