When will I receive the keys?

When i contacted my dealer earlier this week to ask what status code my GT has, the reply was that "my car was arriving shortly"

Now, In Alfa Romeo dealer terms, what exactly is "shortly"
you tell me

Re: When will I receive the keys?

Unfortunately it probably means that the dealer is just about to order the car from the factory

Since the answer I was looking for was not there, I have added one answer to the poll to make me able to vote

Re: When will I receive the keys?

I saw her, i sat in her, and i drove her (from the storage hangar to the garage - 300 m ) Even with all the plastic covers on both exterior and interior she looks sexy!!

I must revise my opinion of my dealer
Not only is she delivered right on time, the sales guy had already filled in all the papers and the envelope was sitting on his desk waiting to be posted yesterday evening..
He's going to put the PDC (which aren't included in the lease contract, hence I will be paying for it myself ) on the invoice as a "free" extra, that way I don't have to pay VAT AND he's going to trow me in a free set of car mats "because she deserves it"
Nice guy!
the car was badged, and it said: .9 JTD

I have heard Antwerp - Veenendaal is a nice distance to break her in.
