I just got off the phone with my dealer and they are telling me up to a 6 month wait for a Hab Red w/Navi. WTF.. is this a custom spec Ferrari? No!

Anyone else hearing this?

That sounds about right and you are looking probably at an 07 model too. Honda under estimated the demand and is running out of navi units for 06 Civics. Plus, Si's are hard to get too.

If you don't mind GG, there's one in Ventura County listed in another current thread. It's available too, I think.

This is why I decided to wait for a MY2007 model. I have a deposit down so I'll have my pick of the first 07 Si's my dealership gets in the fall.

Honda did not expect many Civic owners to order it with Nav so they are hard to come by. They underestimated demand, although you'd think they would have figured it out by now.

Your options are to get one w/o nav and have an aftermarket nav installed, be patient, or be willing to pick up a navi equipped Civic outside your city.

Yeah, I work for Honda, so yes that seems about right for wait time. And you're quite lucky if they even gave you an ETA in the first place. The original allocation for all '06 Civic was about 10% of production.
When you parse the numbers this turns out to be about 10,000 Civic Sedan EX's with NAVI, 3,000 Civic Coupes with NAVI and about 1500 Si's with NAVI. I know it kinda sucks, because I'm waiting for one as well, AND I WORK FOR HONDA!
If you spread the numbers too, you'll find out if these were only sold in the states, you'd still only see about 30 Si's with NAVI per state lol. The allocation numbers were scewed when they were origianlly thought up, looks like numbers shoulda been closer to 40% +.

Happy Huntin' and Good Luck
