Congrats on the purchase! It all depends on what options you chose, times vary alot. I know people who have waited three months and i know people who have waited up to 6-7 months, it all depends.

If the special order is done properly by the dealer, during a time they are actually building cars (ie not mid-summer), it should take roughly 2-3.5 months for the car to get to the US.

Back when I did mine the way it worked is all special orders went in on the 20th, anything made after that waited for the 20th of the following month.

Mine was ordered early July (so went in on July 20th, 2007) and I had my new, special order, 2008 IS350 the first week of October (just about 2.5 months).

The dealership told me around 3 months, so i'm hoping its around that. They also said there isn't a lot of cars being ordered at this time.

I don't think the options matter so much as the build cycle does.

I had to special order my car, and it took about 3.5-4 months to arrive, which isn't abnormal. The majority of the time is spent on a boat, in transit.

Default Is350

I ordered mine IS350 RWD F Sport White/Red color combo in May 26th or so and they told me delivery mid to end August this year(2014). I also own IS350 RWD 2008 with a Sport pkg before F sport and I only waited 2 weeks to be shipped in.
