    New to the forum. Just saw my A8 Phantom Black with Monkey's and black/red interior. red belts a few hours ago. Dealership's owner called to say it had just been unloaded. Kept asking for a VIN, all I had was a VON so I couldn't track it for all of these months. SURPRISE, it's here!!! Not prepped, still dirty with plastics.

    Just about gave up on MY15 and was starting to consider Plum Crazy if I had to go MY16. Still in shock about today's events. Can not wait to take delivery next week!!!

    Thank you B5 Blue and Snappycat. I've been lurking for quite some time and am glad I can now jump in as an owner (well, next week after I take her home).

    Was waiting for a VIN so I could ask RS to help me track the build then...wham...the call...it's here. Well, not quite a "wham", more like preparing for a hit from a really slow motion punch that took months and months. But instead of a punch in the mouth, it was a kiss!!!

    Psyched as hell and will enjoy contributing to this community vs just absorbing information like a forum ninja.

    I consider myself extremely fortunate. Nothing like a discontinued color to make it a bit more of a great outcome (not to mention the A8 showing up!)

    Thanks, April. I was really torn between a manual and the A8. I love rowing gears but went auto for a change of pace. Hope it was a good decision. I'll find out soon enough. Enjoy the weekend with Dante!

    Looks great. Brass monkeys all the way.

    Enjoy your ride next week! I know I couldn't wait one day more with it at the dealership.

    Congrats! If I went black that's what I would have done plus the painted hood. BM on black looks great.

    Congrats. Amazing your dealer didn't tell you this was coming.

    Dodge must be trying to use up the remaining Phantom Black and they found an A8 in the corner!!! Definitely go buy a lottery ticket.

    The crazy thing was I pulled into the dealership and saw the attached Sublime. Deep inside I hoped they made a mistake and it was mine. Turns out it was an order for a gentleman who is a serious collector and has a stable of American Muscle. I couldn't believe my eyes, it was also an A8! My dealer has burned through his allocation, 5 Hellcat Challengers total from MY15 if memory serves.

    So...those who are waiting on the auto, don't give up hope. I will go out and get some lottery tickets!!!
