I was also told I was first on their list for the new allocations, so I don't expect to see it until March/April/May.

I guess the Australian build and deliveries have been pushed out to allow for the US production and delivery before the end of 2011.

Also waiting for a VO......
Thanks for the response, can't wait to get it. I've gone for the comfort access as an option, not sure that I really need it but who cares, happy that the car comes with a good spec - does anyone that already has one care to comment on the Hardan Karman stereo, curious to know whether it's any good in the 1M?

BTW, your boys were lucky last weekend - the kiwi's were just playing with you and never got warmed up!

Don't suppose you have comfort access (or anyone else) and can pass on any feedback?

Ordered it late June and got it just over 3 weeks ago. I feel for you who have to wait so long but have no real remedy for the pain. Then again, you dont know what you really are waiting for (unless you used to work as a mechanic at one of the dealerships in California and got to beat the crap out of it) which makes the wait easier. So please refrain from any test drive, which would render you in tears knowing what really is in store for you...

I used to be a pom - and still am when we win things against aussies - and am quite jealous when I see the price of quality cars over there. That said, happy to live in Brizzie and enjoy the climate and pay, at the moment because of the exchange rate, what may seem to be expensive european cars - but it's not always that way. The best thing is all of your add-on's, well most of them (we don't need heated seats here) are included in the OTR cost here. Can't wait - it's only been a month since the deposit was paid and it's taking an eternity!!!!

Once a pom always a pom, its in your blood

I am in London by choice, 9 yrs now, but could sell up our property and come back anytime, but it's not that bad over here for a stint, wouldn't be a lifer thats for sure, only so long I can go without feeling the warmth of the sun, hence the reason my wife optioned the heated seats, she is from the sunshine coast and still 9 years on in the UK she struggles with the winter, hell her hands go blue in summer here

Cost of things are pretty much equivalent in ways but I still find electricals /computers, bikes etc I can source here cheaper than I can back home, also the cars I have had here have been much more expensive if I had happen to buy in Aus, but what you gain in one area you lose out in another........wont even go into the bloody exchange rate, the amount I am sending back now on a monthly basis for our property there has gone up big time!

The 1M we will bring back with us no doubt.........as for your wait, that's all part of the enjoyment
