    I'm in Knoxville, TN. Just found out that my car was "KZed" on the 21st. Just wondering if anyone here has any idea of what the typical delivery times are from the Brampton plant to this part of the US? I'm sure that the crappie weather is not going to speed up things but still wondering about what to expect.

    Big THANKS to hellcat9212 for the information.

    Last April/May it was 14 days from KZ status to delivery in Nashville. I would think a little longer this time of year. What color/options did you
    end up going with?

    KZ to delivery for me was 6 days but car was routed from Angola NY VDC via truck to dealer in MD. Not sure that is the normal for TN deliveries. Good luck getting your replacement quickly !!

    Thanks guys. I very much appreciate all of the posts. I do know that the first and only Hellcat that the dealer I'm using got finally arrived this past week and it went through Nashville but no one seems to know how long it took to get here.

    bolivarshagnasty.....I ordered a Granite Crystal, Sepia interior (hope that wasn't a mistake) A8 with a sunroof. My Sublime car had a black hood
    which looked like it had been painted in a barn on a windy day. I've never saw so much "trash" in factory paint on anything in my life including
    tractors built in 1970s communist countries. Plus the paint was very soft and did not adhere very well so instead of the satin hood I got the sunroof.
    Instead of the red seat belts (green car had them) I asked for an engine block heater, little strange for TN I know but it has gotten pretty danged cold
    here over the past two winters, my garage and my shop are climate controlled but I'd rather have it and never need it as to need it and not have it.
    I didn't get the brass monkey wheels or the summer tires. I'll be adding a couple of inches to the back wheels and running bigger tires anyway so
    when I weld up the rear wheels I'll be able to just shoot the inside with some satin paint and it should fairly well match the factory color without a lot
    of headache.

    My KZ to delivery was close to a month. They were waiting for the train to be full before they rolled out. From Canada to Ohio (train), Ohio to Indiana (truck).

    A MONTH...............I understand that they are running a business and must make a profit to stay in business but a MONTH!!! Sounds crazy and
    unnecessary to me.

    Thanks for the post Puffy!

    I believe you will have better luck. They are moving more Hellcats right now. Trains are probably filling up quick.

    Just got a phone call from Nick at ISG. He told me that the car is in "KZM" status now meaning that it's on a scenic train ride somewhere. He also asked me to send a copy of the registration and the "buyer's order" for the existing car and asked my new dealership for a buyer's order for the inbound replacement car. He told me that his plan is to get all of the paperwork ready prior to the car arriving and have an ISG rep meet me at the
    dealership when the car arrives to sign the papers and wrap things up. I hope it works that way. It shouldn't be too long now!!! (HOPEFULLY)
