    So it took roughly 5 weeks to go from VON to VIN? Was this at a small dealership? Have they gotten any other allocations before?

    Actually a very large dealership in the Detroit suburbs.
    They used to describe themselves as one of the largest in the country..that said, they sell all the Mopar products, not just Dodge.
    I bought my 09 SRT 8 there...they offered me the #7 SRT 8 ever built so they do have some clout, it appears.

    Congrats! A bit envious of your short wait. Then again, I feel fortunate that I'll have mine within 4 months of ordering. Congrats again!

    Brett..thanks for being so kind. I have been lurking here for a long time and worried after hearing all the horror stories about the wait and/ or markup. Sorry about your wait.

    As I mentioned in an earlier post...I was quite concerned after reading all the reports of wait times here...very surprised and pleased to hear about my wait time....and working hard not to be gleeful or guilty about my fortune in this endeavor.

    VERY cool. Congrats.
    I actually feel the shipping estimate may be pretty aggressive with the holiday shutdown. Did you get an estimated ship date ?

    congrats, did they charge a mark up? Haven't seen many large dealers not marking them up.
