If everyone who is frustrated that their orders have been so delayed would think about what caused the back up in the first place, and try and take it all in perspective, it may not be so frustrating.
I tried to believe that until I found out other states(northeast) were allocated my exact model/color w/ nav and were not preordered. I talked to someone from each of the dealers and they let me know that they were not ordered or if someone ordered and did not pick up and were available for purchase. Some people in the midwest and west coast got theirs as well even after placing orders after mine.
