My wait is finally over -- my salesman called us yesterday at 4 to say it just came off the truck -- I rounded up babysitters and headed to Chicago to pick it up at 5.

I'll be getting all my accessories from Tim -- I asked them how much for the BSMs -- $280 -- I about fell over! I said no thanks, I'll get them myself for $98 and they didn't believe me. So I told them to go to the site and check it out for themselves! What a bunch of boneheads!

I'd post a picture, but I have no idea how to do it!

Thanks to everyone on this board who have educated me about this car and been supportive during my wait.

:D

I went through Continental in Lisle and was first on their list for that model -- that was back in May!!!

A friend of mine just went to Woodfield Acura and they told her if she ordered in January, she'd have it end of February, so they might not have as big of a waiting list, you might call them just to see! She's ordering a premium Mahogany not a GG.

The wait was awful -- and I feel your pain having to wait until March.

You might want to check with other dealers nationwide. I ran into a couple in a SS a few months ago who didn't want to wait for one so they went on the internet and just started contacting dealers. They found one in Mississippi that had the car they wanted, paid MSRP, did everything by certified mail, the car was shipped up here free of charge and they picked it up at a truck stop. They were very happy with the whole process. If I wouldn't have wanted to wait for a 2002 I would have tried it!

Good luck and let me know what you find out!

Thanks for all the congrats!!!

Today was somewhat sunny, so I almost saw a hint of green!!! (okay, I tried really hard to see it)

We ordered our accessories from Tim this morning -- going with the running boards, bsm, weathertech mats, and the the front air deflector. I wanted the rear air deflector, but I just can't emotionally deal with drilling holes and touching up the paint yet.

Ablank -- I can understand about wanting your dealer clost -- Continental is the closest for me and it's an hour and 45 minutes!!! The nice thing is with no Acura dealers here there are very few of us on the road in my area. Good luck on the wait!
