Originally went to Castle Hill but reading this forum it seemed they were not highly recommend. From.what I read it was more to do with the best of a bad bunch.
It was a Penrith dealer that was the best then second was witara.

I did order beige interior, maybe that takes longer?
Arghh! Mine was suppose to arrive 18th March, now put back to 22nd April.

I think Rocksfly's unwanted DCR took my spot!

Hey Benn(),
I spoke with my dealer yesterday to find out what was happening. I also ordered the beige interior and he said that they are not as common as the the other colours and they wait until they get a few before they do them all together.

Cool, I ordered mine in November, and it was built by the beginning of Feb. It's now sitting in the Charlevoix Yard waiting for a boat ride. I think it was suppose to get on the one that left on the 7th, but missed out. Might have been a bit late getting built.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Mine was not ordered until Jan so is probably in the run after yours. I still have not got the e number of the dealer but he assures me that it is due to start build in the next week!

Can somebody provide the name of the dealer principal at Waitara, please?

I have some 'feedback' for him or her.

You should ask your dealer if he has ever seen a picture of an assembly line and how they work. All different colors, all different trims, all different variants, and sometimes, different models all going down the same assembly line. I sometimes wonder how they can sprout such misinformation with a straight face.

Used to be Frank, but I heard he has moved on.
