I get the odd PM about it. There is a back story of frustration an myth that started it.
It is our life's story though!

I have been hearing SFU so long that it comes natural. I forget new people are joining all the time and do not know the meaning. We should have a thread that lists definitions and people in the know, so newcomers know what is what, and who is who. I bet we really throw them off when we start talking inverted pork rectums

They found my unicorn!!!

WOO HOO! Looks like they will be doing one of their "midnight drops" that my dealer told me about. He said its common because the truckers like the fact that there is nobody in the lot to get in the way when they unload them.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Also I am sorry to say but it appears one of our unicorns didn't make it…

Thx!
I really have been lurking since these beasts were announced back in January. Been with you all the way as a spectator, rooting for releasex feeling your pain...all the while waiting for the opportunity to jump in. Today was that day!

I hope you get somewhere. One more thing: Hegewisch is listed on my bill of lading as a Chrysler yard, so I think they are still in charge of when your GC leaves the lot. I would think customer service should be able to tell you something...

Congrats on the order. Hopefully yours won't take 11 months. Actually I am seeing them go from order to KZ in less than a month. You should definitely have yours before Christmas. Welcome to the obsession.

The 8 year plan is an official Chrysler Warranty option, they likely just didn't tell you about it. With apologies to those who know this all by heart several times over, check out this site CHRYSLER SERVICE CONTRACTS: Extended Warranties from Chrysler. SAVE 60%! Quick Quotes. Buy Online. for a dealer who sells official Chrysler warranties at a discount.

My dealer originally wanted $2,900 but then offered to match Ziegler's $2,000. Still haven't decided to take it or not yet.

Gonna be a race to see who gets theirs first. At least I know I will be picking mine up Thursday morning. I still have a hunch you will get yours a day or two before me. I hope you win, so you can give your review before I fly down to pick up mine.
