Picked up last weekend.
The whole order took just over a month. I placed the order on march 5th (with the "6 to 8 weeks who knows" wait time), in 19 days i got a call with the ETA and the VIN, i was told its gonna be another 3 weeks. In a week, another call - car should come two days earlier. Finally after another two days i was told the car is there, making it an even 5 weeks.
Regarding driving experience - very nice, huge upgrade over an '02 Civic, mileage tho... oh well its a turbo. I drive a lot, so i had to get gas 4 days after teh pick up, 315 miles or so.
