That's pretty much my story too. Order went through on Sept 1 and was told 6-8 wks, "maybe even less." Very doubtful on the "less" part and I am hopeful that they can do it in 8 weeks, but I'm expecting more.
My order Sept 1, is now in JB status and has an estimated ETA of Dec 20-26. Lat 4x4, 1.4L/Man, power My Sky, Cold Weather Grp, full spare. ...that's nothing too out of the norm so not sure why it would take until Dec for delivery.
