I've been patiently waiting for 7 months on my TTS and was thrilled to hear that it had finally arrived in Jacksonville via the Lake Wanaka on Monday.

Just found out from my SA (who has been fantastic and communicative throughout the process) that there is a stop sale due to the shortage of a certain Burmester part.

The affected vehicles are Panameras (971), Taycans (Y1A/Y1B), and Cayennes (9YA/9YB). If you're waiting on one of those and have optioned the Burmester sound system, it might be a while. There's apparently no estimated delivery date on the widget and a bunch of cars are affected. FML.

Yeah it's really frustrating and sad when every option you spec in your build feels like a game of Russian Roulette, uncertain which optioned part is going to be entangled in a stop sale 😞

My car has been at my dealership since 6/23 with no ETA and only “we’ll call you as soon as it arrives”. So frustrating. They indicated they don’t see a lot of cars optioned with Burmester so they have no sense how long it may be.

I am surprised it took so long to hit Porsche. Mercedes here has stopped letting people order Burmester on non S-Class for almost a year now....

I called my dealership parts department today to see if they knew anything but no luck. They suggested I call PNA which went no where claiming the local dealership knows more than they do. Could be a week, could be 8 months they claim.

Same happened to me as well. Car delivered in early March, expected part arrival in late June. It did come earlier and I got my car end of May 2022

I only had to wait 2 weeks for the Burmester amp to arrive - hopefully it will not be too long.

hi- i’m hoping this is a little bit of a hopeful reply, but when my car arrived at the dealership, it was missing the Burmeister amp, and it arrived a week later for them to install. There were a couple of other small delays and I have the vehicle now. The stereo is amazing.

I just got some good news myself. My amp was shipped to the dealer and is being installed today. Perhaps those supply chains are unsnarling a little bit. Super excited and will post pictures when I pick it up!
