placed a new oder for an AWD 300C. :D This will come into the dealership in and about March. I was the first one that ordered an AWD from this dealership. They only charged me $1500 more. They gave me a very good price to begin with. So now my wait has been pushed an extra 6 weeks. But that gives Borla time to make the exhaust for the AWD version and gives me some more time to check out video possibilites for the car.
How long did most of you wait for your cars once you placed an order or did most of you buy it off the lot?
Anyone here have the AWD model yet?

Eeek. Considering the wait and trouble people have gone through with standard 300c's and ordering from the factory, I'd say you're in for the long haul sadly enough. They can't even get 300c production up to pace, let alone the SRT-8 or the AWD model.

I would keep an eye on dealer inventory in case one pops in with the options you want. I imagine you'll be waiting a looong time.

No kidding!! Gotta also figure in which dealership is involved and how their allocations are structured...that could make it even longer!!

My sales agent just postponed my delivery date to May 6th! :mad: I was suppose to receive it by April! Ok, I will keep a positive perspective on the late delivery date and use the extra time to save for rims. :mad: :mad:

Geeeshh. I can't imagine waiting that long. You need to find a way to go into hibernation and wake up in 11 months. How much more would it cost to buy a C in America and ship it to Australia?

I just have to accept it unfortunately. Also, we are right hand drive here so the option of private import is not very attractive, when you consider conversion, private import duty, etc..

No-one is saying yet what the specs will be for the Aussie 300C but one thing I have found out is that we will probably get the Magnum wheels as they reckon Aussies don't like too much chrome. Crap I say. I want the chrome wheels you guys get or maybe I will splash out on some 20" rims.

The Aussie 300Cs will be built in the same Austrian plant that builds the Crossfire so it is expected to be a little better assembled than the Canadian cars. :eek:

Just a comparison on private imports, C5 Corvettes (near new) fetch between $120,000 to $150,000 OZ$ which is about US$90k to US$112k, depending on the model and number of miles. Chrysler imported 25 Vipers about two year back, had them converted to RHD locally and tried to sell them for A$250,000 EACH. Only sold about 10 and unloaded the others around the world (Asia, UK, Etc).

Just looked at a couple of AWD 300C's at my dealer in Toronto last week sitting there lonely with no owners. :( But of course we are only a half hour drive from the Brampton plant. Don't worry, be happy! they are on the way! ;)

I am curious to know, how did the AWD wheels look on the 300C, i have serious doubts about them. I would also like to know how much higher the stance of the car is with the AWD. I hear it is higher and the room in the wheel wells is even greater than what it already is on the regular 300c. Thanks for your time.

U r kidding me right? The AWD version is higher???? :mad: As it is, it looks like it is on stilts. All this talk about how long it is REALLY going to take is very discouraging.
I need a Grey Goose and tonic, make that a double.
