    Just got an email from my dealer went KZ on 11/21 currently at the Detroit axle yard and estimated delivery on 11/26! He sent me a Vehicle Shipment Status and History report that shows all of this. Could have something to be very thankful for on Turkey day.

    My cat is an auto.

    Did anyone ever hear if they have released ANY of the prior built A8's? I am wondering if they are trying to update so many of them a day or if they can't figure out what to do. At this point it would seem faster to just reprogram the whole darn thing or put a new tranny in, whatever the issue is...:rolleyes:

    Damage control, is a funny thing, they probably want them delivered but need the most cost effective option

    How many monkeys do you think it takes to determine the most cost effective option? J/K, Dodge builders...but, COME ON!!! My Hellcat buddies need their cars released!

    got to be more than a flash.

    I got a recall for my ( work truck Chevy) I know different product but they need reprogram something and they need the truck for 4 hours. So does it take 4 hours to reprogram a car????? then they can do one at a time ????
    probably no other reason.......

    Have you ever seen the old computers that run off of punch cards? Maybe they use those to do the programming, lol. Save the more advanced stuff for ~in~ the cars.

    its slow cause they can be, Its not like they will have trouble selling the cars if we back out on the deal, the dealer is in a win win place,,But on the other hand, the dealer has to deal with very upset customers, I.E. ME
