Actually, I did something similar to what you quoted above. I reserved in feb in Dallas and in September I moved my reservation to a friend I know in round rock because they are getting them faster there. I told smart that I was moving. Within 24 hrs I went from 18-24 month total wait time to 9-12 months. I configured 3 weeks after moving while people that ordered before me here are still waiting. I now have a DDE of 12/08-3/09. It can work.

Estimated Ranking of Smartcenter Wait Times

Smithtown, NY (very short wait)
Connecticut

Cherry Hill, NJ
Devon, PA
Round Rock, TX

Dallas, TX (long wait)

(It would be helpful to rank ALL Smartcenters)

People need to get over themselves... It's not you're fault they didn't work the system.

BTW... the wait time for the Tampa stealership is about 6 months right now... I ordered early June and have been told to expect my car at the end of November...

Thats what I thought. I think the dealership here knows now and they be not happy. SO I think I may still be the 1st in my city to get one. Someone should check San Antonio and Houston for times.
