Default 992 Atlanta Experience Center Delivery

Got all excited to get the email from the Atlanta PEC about my order. Not so excited to learn I canít take delivery for almost 2 full months after it supposedly arrives in the Jacksonville port. Never had any first hand experience ordering from scratch. Wondering if thatís the norm? Sure hope the experience is worth the wait!

Seems to be the norm. My wife ended out canceling her Atlanta delivery because she didn't want to wait.

Bummer. I think I have a few months to decide but may end up doing the same.
Iíll have to see how well my patience holds up.

We do about 8 of these a year(we actually incentivize people to do it). They have limited space there along with only a few people that do the deliveries so during peak season it has gotten longer. I have never seen a 2 month delay though.

I think the implied lesson here is to opt for European delivery instead.

Completed the build on 6/5 and still hasn’t left Germany?????? At this rate it’ll be 6 months old before I get it. Frustration is mounting

What was the expected ship and arrival dates? Dealer should be able to provide you the schedule.
