Been waiting since early April. Got the call last night. Should be here within several weeks. Got the VIN and other info.I know it is any day in the first week but I'm dying to know if any dealers got their allocation notices? I could just ask my dealer but I guess I'm trying not to appear so anxious. Of course all of you will know different...
You better make sure you have a custom order in. It was not until July that Lexus reopened the custom order process.Congrats tchris, I hope you enjoy your new ride. I was patient enough to wait until yesterday to call my dealer. He told me that they would get the allocation call today due to the month ending on a Sunday but that I should expect a call by 10:30 am this morning. I called him at 2 pm after hearing nothing and heard a different story, no allocations of the specific color (fire agate) in our region...I wish I could understand the process a little more since I thought when I placed a custom order on 5/5 (I know a lot more people have been waiting longer) that I would get placed on some production list somewhere, not in a lottery pool of potential cars by region??? That is the most frustrating part, and also similar to your scenario - no calls from my dealer in 3 months, only the ones I've made.
I placed my order at the exact time you did. At least my dealer was knowledgeable enough to tell me that one, custom orders had just been put on hold and two the color interior I wanted had never been released in our area.I think you are on to something Dirvin and I will have a chat with my dealer tomorrow or Monday. However, if as you mentioned that custom orders were not possible until July, I'd be somewhat resetting the clock after three months in. I told my dealer in May that I wasn't in a hurry but that I was also very particular so I preferred a custom order. It would have been nice for the dealer to tell me that custom orders weren't available so I would know that my wait would be filled with total confusion...not a hurry but some idea of when would be nice.
No. We never even discussed pricing. I figured we would do that dance when the car came in. If stock is more plentiful then my position will be better.Were you able to secure pricing for a 2012 model? I've been reading the other forum entries and I'm going to look again now but last I checked that hadn't been released yet.
