1200 mile service problem

Just got my 1200 mile service today. It took the dealership 4 hours, and apparently the oil filter is back ordered nationwide (or so I was told). I need to bring it back for a filter change when they become available. Has anyone else had this problem?

Wow, you hit 1200 miles already? I'm only at 300 so far. I can't wait for the break in period to be over.

Well, i just got the call from my dealer and it's the same story. They changed all the fluids, but I'll have to bring it back to replace the filters.

Do any of you know how long it would take the filters to arrive?
