I've been trying to track a Sky down for awhile now, especially since my Audi A4 is almost done being worked on and I am ready to trade in.

The only one that I could find was a Black with Black leather, about 20 mins from my house. I'm going to put a deposit down on it Monday. 5spd, LSD, and black or white were my standards, and red leather would have been nice but it's not happening at this point.

I was told it was being built on May 15th, and I was told to expect to get the car in June. Would you say that's accurate, or will I end up waiting 6 months from then?

Should I keep calling dealers like crazy across the country to find one? If there's one in my backyard unaccounted for, there HAS to be a few more somewhere...preferably white/red ;)

Your advice?

But he's not ordering in May...he stated the car is being built the week of May 15th...so it looks like the car has already been ordered and has a TPW. I'd say the 'June' delivery sounds about right...mine is being built the week of 5/22 and I was also told to expect delivery in June.

That sounds reasonable. I know it seems like it has taken ages for some on the list to get the sky, but in reality it has been 6 to 8 weeks once the car is imaged. They only started producution in March.

I know there are several dealers in SoCal that are getting cars and putting them on the lot! You need to be willing to pay either over MSRP or pay for dealer Add-ons that may in themselves me severly marked up! Also pretty much call th day the car comes in.

Build Date

Mine was built on 4-11-06. It was shipped out by the 18th, and it still has not arrived today 5-6. So it is any body's guess.

As for mine, it was built on 2-28-06 and I picked it up 3-30-06... and that was with a LONG delay on transportation (it apparently sat at the depot for a while) -- So one month sounds very reasonable from build date to delivery.

I wish that was true for us... Tomorrow is exactly 8 weeks from our image - and we were just sequenced (supposedly)... Not even built yet... :banghead:

Jen... Yours could be built already and you not know it.
Most SKY owners did not know that their SKY was born until after the event. Your dates sure look like you are going this week. If not already done...

We're waiting WITH you!

Yes it is very posible you can have it middle to end of June. Depends on where you live ? I know of a grey one at MSRP in Ct.
