The dealer has certain cars that are allotted to them. They order them according to market conditions. Normally when you order, they will adjust one of these available vehicles (not promised to anyone else) for you. So a dealer with a high allotment will have more opportunities to change and existing order right before it goes into production. This is how you get quick turn around times.

Sorry to hear of the long waits, should not be that way.
Good time with the ships does not hurt either...
