The dealer told me 60-90 days from configuration time just a few minutes ago. He said the DDE estimator is not accurate at all but from the date I gave, he said I should have it by April (for what its worth).

I'm already at 138 days since I configured and NO car! :mad:

I configured on 8/28 and am picking up my car Saturday (1/17). I was told that about a month of that was because there was a delay with the Rally Red cars.

configured 11/11/08, no car yet, DDE keeps jumping around, as of today ETA is 03/10/09 to 06/08/09.

I am determined to only take the car I ordered, or an exact matched orphan. (It has been tempting several times, but I am sticking to the my original rational for getting one.)

Time between config and delivery ?

With all the inventory at our local smart center (Indianapolis) and the others around the country, I really see no reason to put your $99 down for a reservation. You can pretty much WALK IN and DRIVE OUT! :D

If you don't want to configure your own and you want to pay extra that would work but I like the price I got when I configured and for similar units on the lot the price is higher so I can wait.

I configured 11/07/08. Got the '90 day' e-mail on 12/11/08. Received car ????, as in 'not yet'.

I've rsvp'd to the Dallas smart Center's party this Saturday, so I think I'll just mention it.. Don't know why, but I think I remember that they said they're actually due a shipment that day, so maybe mine'll be on it... (pace, pace, pace, bite fingernails, pace, pace...)

I configured my Brabus in Nov 2008 and am still waiting for a DDE to show, although the Dealer told me it would be made in May and I should be getting it sometime in June 2009. How accurate have the Dealers been?

A couple of hours after my previous post the dealership called to say that my car is built. I now have a VIN. They say it should be here in about a month. Is this realistic?
