Add two weeks for California. Add 10 days for South Africa.

Ah, right, I didn't pick up on that.

So if it's four weeks from production start to end of prep--does that include delivery to the dealer? Or would that be additional time? I guess this means my car has to be done before January 31 for me to have a prayer of getting it in suburban Chicago before March 1.
Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?
