    I just got off the phone with my dealer informing me my A8 granite/black Challenger order was placed and a VON has been established; however, the SRT salesman I was working with was on vacation when the order was entered and unfortunately the salesman who placed the order inadvertently missed the summer tire and red seat belt options I requested; but it'll be corrected tomorrow claiming they have a small window of opportunity to make these changes before a VIN is established.

    Is he correct saying this ??? ------ can a dealer make changes after VON but prior to VIN??

    Thank you !

    Yes. It's after you get to D1 and have a VIN#, that it becomes more challenging to make edits.

    Thank you Chuck -------- I'm very excited about the car, I could live with not getting the summer tires but really want the red seat belts.

    I keep going back and forth anyway about the tires due to the pros and cons of AS vs Summer ??

    GET THE SUMMER TIRES!! or else youll be spinning tires at 50 mph like I was. BTW. I changed my order last year after getting a VON and it was no big deal. everything worked out great.

    I don't know what the cost difference is for 2016 MY on the two types of tires, but think about keeping your order with the all-season tires and use the extra money to buy a set of drag radials when your Cat comes in. Although the summer tires are better than the all-season for traction, you'll still have trouble hooking up with them. Just a thought...

    Rob, that is my plan as well. If this was being delivered in spring I'd prob get summer option. I want to be able to drive during colder months. Precip is not really an issue here.
