    After being on my dealers waiting list for a year and a half I got the call on January 13th that they received another allocation and I was the next in line! I went down on the 13th of Jan and paid my deposit and ordered my car and they told me that they would let me know when it would be built. I have not heard anything since and was getting worried because it was stuck in BG status since then. I called the SRT Hotline a few weeks ago and finally found out today from them that the order was approved and my car has a June 1st build date! I am very excited to get the car after such a long wait! Any advice with anything I should do to the car after I receive it would be greatly appreciated!

    -Mopar splash guards
    And some clear 6" stone guard just aft of them on the lower rockers and
    Rear Quarter panels...
    Would be #1 i'd start there.
    -If a manual I would also do a skip shift eliminator.

    Make sure you ask for everything off the car from the Pdi. Papers,splitters plastic and any labels. These will prove worth it down the road when you show someone the story of your car. Good luck and I hope it comes soon.
    I ordered mine the same day and it went d1 2 weeks ago. Estimated to be delivery by 10-17 of March. I hope sooner but I will wait

    Was your color choice a popular one or did you add stripes or roof? I may call SRT tomrw to see

    Welcome to the club, will be driving them soon and i hope yours comes sooner. That sounds like a padded time for build and doesn't make sense

    Yes, They said that I will receive my VIN in June when it goes into production and that they do not issue a VIN until that point.

    Good advice, thanks! I ordered Tored with black laguna leather and red seat belts. No roof or stripes. I dont know if it is held back until June due to the color choice or what?
