Did you already turn it in to them?

Might be a moot point, though. The dealer would need to have an unsold build slot in the next five weeks to even get a spec-built 2011 35d. With five weeks of production left, and the next two or three weeks builds probably too far along to change to your specs, that's a mighty small window for them to have an available build. Did they give you a production week and number?
I'm going to call the dealer when they open today. I turned over keys to them on Sunday and they were supposed to send me a check for the equity in the car. I shouldve made them give it to me on the spot. Anyway regarding the other dealer. I ordered last night and got a production number. I did not get a production week. I also have to get my deposit back too. Hopefully they won't make a big stink about all of this.
