thoughts anyone?
The only thing that makes sense to me would be that they caught a production issue in QC of early builds which they can address in new builds (which is why they are passing through more readily). Say they found a certain squeak, rattle, variance in panel gap, etc. and can modify the production process to address it early. The long holds are just them going back and fixing/improving after the fact. It's either that or a certain paint/wheel/trim has a supply constraint.
