    was told by dealer today that my challenger got d status today (9/11 order). Bad news is that FCA automatically changed ALL the outstanding a8 orders (mine included) to m6. Didn't ask. Just did it. Change was made on 4/22!!

    Bullshit. No way they just force people to accept m6 cars. New rule. ..nobody is allowed to post any thread containing the words "my dealer told me. ..."

    Dealer just wants "stock" to sell.
    Original order name doesn't matter, you refuse it; O my, let's attach an ADM and move the metal baby !!

    I doubt FCA just changed it on their own, the dealer changed it or else it wouldn't get built. He's hoping you either take it and its a done deal or it hits the showroom floor for a 1/2 day before someone else buys it.

    I guarantee if you call the SRT hotline they are going to tell you that the dealer changed it. They wouldn't just change your order without some consent from your dealer. Many people are unable to drive a 6 speed for physical reasons. That would be a legal ADA (American's with Disabilities Act) issue for them to change an order without approval. Your dealer knows if you won't take it, they can sell it to someone else and you can order a 2016 with an A8. Bunch of bull shizzy and I am so sorry you are one of the ones that is getting rouged out of what you ordered so long ago!:mad:

    Are you accepting the change? Maybe somebody else wants the M6 if you do not want it

    Only dealer changed it. Since they didn't care about you they plan to sell the car to someone who wants M6 instead
