    It's been a LONG wait, since first seeing this car last summer, finally placing my first order 12/8, second order out of state the end of 2/15, then another order (who supposedly had an allocation for a 2016 two weeks ago...he didn't realize his allocation was for M6, not A8 like I wanted), then a week ago, courtesy of Hellcat.org, I saw an email alert pop up on my phone stating a Challenger A8 allocation for MSRP, today only. That was last Thursday. I called the dealer right away, put down my deposit and I have a VIN today...well Thursday...I've stayed up late and now it's 1:13am Friday. An honest dealer from Austin who was well informed, accepted my voucher and kept his word. I would of had a VIN two days ago if I didn't have Brass Monkey as an option. The dealer emailed and called me to tell me that if I'd drop that option, I'd get a car much sooner. I got on here, did some research, called my local powder coater, then called him back and dropped that option yesterday afternoon..and BAM, VIN, first thing this morning. Thanks Hellcat.org!!!

    I came so close to giving up. I looked at Z06's, GTR's, F Type R's, GT 350R's (almost pulled the trigger on this one), CTS-V's and 2014 GT 500's. But I hung in there and finally it's going to happen! :cool::p:cool::):cool::p:)

    Radcat I am glad it worked out for you. I got my order in,I am in C status as of yesterday because of the brass monkey rims but I think I am going to do as you did & cancel them to speed up this process.Good luck with your car.Hope everyone gets what they are waiting for.

    Hello Radcat whats the story you heard on the BM wheels? I ordered the same options except i went with the black laguna i have a build date the week of 10/12. i called the GM at the dealer he text the regional rep, His reply was i have not heard of any issues with the BM option

    He told me that he talked to the regional FCA rep and was told if I dropped the BM wheels that my order would get picked up sooner. I got on here and saw several others who had heard the same thing, which confirmed his diagnosis, so I dropped them and had a VIN the next morning. If you already have a build date, you should already have a VIN right? If you have a VIN, you're golden, so don't sweat it. I only had a VON, like I've had for the last 9 months. FINALLY a VIN. D status. Don't have a schedule date yet, but should be soon...at least now I have a VIN and can check status on the SRT site.

    Glad to hear the voucher worked as advertised.

    Hey there I'm on LI Oceanside
    Looks like we have the same car
    I went no sunroof and an automatic
    They told me I'm in D status
    He didn't know what the deal was with the brass wheels he just said that those wheels would delay it.
