Waiting? (was:new ads)


I guess I'm a bit confused.  Did you get a 98 A6q or the GS300?  Or both ;-)

And on a side note.  Wondering how long most dealers are saying for waits?
Tiff and I drove an A4q, sprts, 5spd, Avt a few weeks ago.  Dealer also had
an order "in line" that we could modify to our own likes.  He claimed 4~6
weeks to get that one. Figured I'd wait for the syncro to show before
ordering, but after seeing the factory the A4 is looking sweet!  I have to
question the 9 month wait given to you...no wayyyyyy.  Other recent
experiences please chime in...

Can definitely confirm the expenses of our area (650 by night, 408 by day)
and requisite non-deal making.

P.S.  I'm guessing your biz is with wine;  right?    ;-)
