Post pics of the BMW when you buy it. Maybe the people from SRT will start to take notice that building the hype and failing to deliver may drive away the buyers they are targeting.

Re: Will prob cancel order and go BMW

A quick and useless search of the internet yielded people waiting for a mustang, VW, toyota and others eight weeks or more for specially built vehicles (or not) from the factory. Considering this Jeep as "super special" for definition purposes, you all are right around the proper waiting period.. blame the recession, too.

Re: Will prob cancel order and go BMW

Im sorry....but this is the START of production for a brand new platform, with almost all new parts and a low production vehicle. Theres tons more info here on delays etc. then there has ever been available to custom order customers EVER. But NO company is gonna inform the customer of build delays etc, and the reason why the delay. Thats not good business at all.
We do offer a service here at JeepGarage to track your vehicle from the time you receive the von/Vin. Dealers can do this to a certain extent...but not on a daily basis and with the details.
As stated above...this is not just a Jeep problem...its across the industry. Theres no way to get a new platform build up and going full steam from day 1. It takes months and months to reach full capacity. I also seriously doubt...that if you ordered an X5M in Mid-July...that it would be here from Germany just yet either.

Re: Will prob cancel order and go BMW

It will make the dealer you ordered from happy, sounds like he will have one of the few available 2012 Jeep GC SRT/8's. Most likely will be able to charge several $K more for it too. One thing i've learned in my old age is patience, especially with cars and limited production models, I've had a couple. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
