Total time for dealer to install new dashboard?

Hey guys,

I've got my 12000 mile service coming up in a few hundred miles, and my passenger side airbag bulge has gotten too bad for me to stand.

For you guys that had a new dash installed, how many days did it take for your dealer to install the new dash, and would they order the part in advance for you?


Thanks!

BTW, in addition to the service and my dashboard, my exhaust tips will be replaced. The paint around the rim of the tip seems to have burned away.... At least everything will get taken care of in one shot.

I've got a 2008 model with about 12,000 miles on it. It sits in direct sunlight 8 hours a day near 250 days a year, so with 1 year down it's got a lot of time out there. And I think the exhaust tips were just a manufacturing fault, no biggie.
