When you say weekly allocations, do you mean in the context of the normal 2 week consensus process? i.e. at the next consensus on 9/19 more allocations will be given?

Or do you literally mean every week a dealer gets more?

Dealers are receiving allocations weekly IF THEY HAVE ALLOCATIONS AS CONSENSED.

Consensus was completed on Monday for order placements 9/12 & 9/19.

I'm sorry, I'm still not understanding what you mean. Do you mean the allocation amounts for the next consensus on 9/19 are now known?

So could someone clear up the constraint report confusion.

Does the constraint on the Carbon fiber roof effect current orders @ 3000 and above? Many of use are stuck at 3300 with it being on our order and are not progressing. My thoughts are the issue came up with them after we were at 3000 and now are stuck with waiting on individual roof panels to arrive to build our cars. Hence the trickle of them coming out with the roof panel since the announcement of the constraint. This would also indicate why I and a few others lost our TPW date to being unknown now. Just wish we could be told of the issue with our individual orders and given a special option to remove it to get the car on the line instead of being held on the sidelines. Can't be that many of us that made it through before the constraint.

So I guess my hopes of getting my new car before Oct are now dashed. Bummer. Hopefully it gets built in time to get here by Christmas.

Luckily, I have my Hennessey CTS-V to kill time with. LOL.

Hard to believe that at no time since early July FAY and CF roof have both not been available at the same time.

why not just order the car with factory color roof and order the carbon roof down the
road ?
This way the car is not held up
