And I contacted my dealer on wednesday.. they have no updates, as to when my wheels will be in.. she says they are on long term back order.
Same for me with no expected date . I even asked if I could have a set of the new ones (on the new 300c) and apparently not. I am very close to just taking the existing ones to a wheel shop and getting them refurbished and sending them the bill as this is becoming a joke.

I'd wait a little longer.. see what the outcome with the state of Chrysler at the end of the month.
It's highly unlikeley, should you go down the route of having them refurbed privately, that you'll get your bill paid.
If Chrysler go under, then you probably have no alternative, and if they survive, then you'll get them done under warranty

I had a further interesting discussion with Mr Bailley of Chrysler UK today - sadly cut short as I had a doctor's appointment to attend to. However we did discuss the comments expressed on this thread especially regarding consideration being given to vehicles only recently over their warranty date. The logistics of the proposed offer weren't discussed due to me having to cut short the conversation but the current state of Chrysler was mentioned and suffice to say that Mr Bailley is pretty confident that Chrysler will continue as a company and that some form of "deal" will be struck with Fiat once the current negotiations are concluded. The point at the end of the day is that Fiat want into the American market, Chrysler want small engine technology (and backing), and the American government and more so Barak Obama a very NEW President, don't want the embarrassment of letting a major motor manufacturer go to the wall. It is in everyone's interests to reach some form of positive conclusion and hence he, and for my part, I, think the future will still have Chrysler there. I will be back in touch with Mr Bailley in the next couple of weeks when I hope we will have more detail to report on the idea of using the services of Pristine to refurbish Chrysler wheels.
