F800gs fuel pump backordered??!!!!!!!

I've been informed that my defective fuel pump (on a brand-new F800GS) is backordered in three-digit numbers (ie, more than 99 are backordered)! My bike has been in the shop for 18 days and I've only owned it for 21 days total! They have told me that they won't have any until at least the end of February! Complicating the issue is the fact that my local dealership in Hawaii didn't have any F800GS's, so I had one shipped from North Carolina. It makes it a little harder for me to drop it off and reverse the charges.

Is anyone else out there waiting on a fuel pump? Has anyone else had this kind of issue before?

The "customer service manager" at BMW Corporate today told me that I could do nothing but wait for the part and when my bike is fixed. He couldn't even give me a deadline for the part or a resolution. I'm livid.

Thanks for your help.
