After many months of waiting (reserved in November 07), I was finally able to configure my black/black cabrio (although I wanted yellow - see other discussions on this topic), and then had my DDE go from months to actual dates (Oct 9 - Jan 9). Now it's 'slipping' a bit (just today, it went from Oct 9 to Oct 12 to Oct 14 to Oct 16 - and yes, I check it multiple times each day - patience is not one of my virtues). I'm taking this as a good sign. I'd like to hear from others who had this experience and who now have their smarts - how much longer do I have to wait? Thanks
Reserved a fortwo in March of 07 and took delivery on 1/26/08. Ordered a second in September of 07 and my current DDE is May of 09 to July of 09. There simply is no rhyme or reason to the method for determining who gets what. smartusa says that is not the case, but look at the order dates and delivery dates and estimates and you'll believe otherwise.
