    The dealer told me my new 2012 is in "F" status at the port. Does anyone know what this means and how long that takes to get to "Me In The Driver's Seat" status?

    Why didn't you ask them what it meant when they told you? Try Google.

    I did. They said it was "at the port", but they didn't tell me what port.

    Also, they first told me it would take 4-6 weeks to get. Then during the 6th week they said it was delayed so it would be 8-10 weeks......then I was told I would get it between the 7th-10th, and then today I was told it was in "F" status and should get it in a few days.

    So with everything they have been telling me, I'm not really trusting the "few days" remark....

    fyi, the dealer has nothing to do with the shipping, they are simply relaying info to you.

    it's tough for them to know exactly when it will be there.

    FYI Rubber pellets hurt worse than beanbags and will get your targets more submissive. Don't forget the pepper spray!
