How long did it take for you to receive your Si from the day you ordered.

This weekend I am ordering my Si-dan in TW. I'm not in a huge hurry, but I know I'm gonna be anxious to receive the car. Any idea how long it should take?

Haha, took me almost 7...but I put my deposit down in November 2005, when almost everyone was waiting.

WOW. That's not normal is it? The lady at the dealership told me 2 months...maybe I should expect longer.

No, the wait shouldn't be bad now. That was when the new Si's were first released for the 2006 model year...coupe only, so demand was high, supply was low, some dealerships were charging a $5K markup on sticker or requiring you to purchase so many dollars worth of accessories if you wanted on a wait list...things were ridiculous. You'll be okay if you order it now.

it is going to take 3 months if they are just putting the order in and they cannot change one of their current cars which has already been ordered and is waiting to be built.

If they can change a already ordered car before it is built it may only take 1.5 months.

I would figure 3 months, if you get it sooner....all the better.

the longer it takes, the more money i'll be putting down on it. so, for those of you that it took 5 months +, did you order in '06?

Being that it's an '08 model now, should I expect 2-4 months max?

Just out of curiousness but why would you order rather then researching dealerships that have them in stock? I drove in & drove out with mine & couldn't be happier.

I think what your looking for is "curiosity"...

Anyway, I would like to order mine cause I want to be the first one to drive it. I don't want something w/34 miles of vtec...

Plus no dealers around me have one.

btw I was told 30-90 days by one dealership, 4 months by another, and 40 days from another... lol

1) read post above mine
2) no dealers in my state & the 4 surrounding states have the color i want (TW).

Took over 6 months for me. Although it didn't help that the 1st dealer forgot to order navi as an option so I had to go elsewhere to get exactly what I wanted.


I would say a few months on average honestly for the wait time.
