None even mentioned "happily" with regards to the delivery times
. I wasn't happy about it but I we had two choices:
1) Accept to buy a car already in Australia which is "nearly" what we wanted, except for the engine (PD vs. common rail) and the "entertainment system".
2) Get exactly what we wanted, and accept that it will take time.
You probably guessed from my earlier response what we did.
No, the Eos is not the most expensive car around but for us it's still a fair bit of money. Happy to compromise with regards to time!!
As already mentioned, we were given a time frame in which to expect delivery of the car. We ended up smack-bang in the middle of it which for me is a glass half full situation.
I have to second silvershadow here: Overpromise, underdeliver still seems to be the way to go with most car salespeople. We got lucky, I suppose.
Anyway, enough ranting. You WILL get the car, and as written previously, you won't have to wait too long for the top down weather to arrive. Enjoy the car, and looking forward to seeing you at the cruise (provided you're in Melbourne, and geoffa is making sure he's doing the right thing with his finger.
