Yea, I was told by the store that Specialized Europe would be "in touch with me directly to find a solution". That was on May 18, ie 3 weeks ago. Haven't heard a thing. LOL. This is my first customer experience with Specialized. Based on it, I would say it seems something is not well organized within their company.
My experience with Specialized Europe so far has been really really good, so maybe it's worth checking with your LBS if they actually informed them correctly. You can also just contact them directly and doublecheck.

I’m really appalled by their non existent professionalism. They had more than a year after their non disc S-Works SL6 launch to get the disc version sorted yet they are still fumbling even after the launch. Way way behind in rolling out stock. Now we wait indefinitely for nothing. Not well organized is an understatement. Not impressed. They very least we expect from a company like Specilialized is some honesty and tell us what really is the hic cup.
I wouldn't wait forever for a frame to arrive. Honestly I don't understand how people just accepted these 'excuses' and keep waiting and waiting... Same with frames coming in way over advertised weight, just return it already.

Been off the bike weeks due to the ol winter sniffles.. Couple of updates
F3 mount for garmin and fly12.
Much cleaner with this mounted on the stem bolts.

Berk lupina padded 150mm x 7mm rail.
I'm a saddle whore can resist trying new saddles.. This is really lovely. Different comfort due to flex compared to power but like it so far.
89g Saddle for a 143g reduction from one change... nice.

For anyone curious on frame weight, my SL6 Disc in a 52 comes in at 785g. Seatpost is 163g and fork is 340g uncut.

What are everyone's favorite lightweight disc wheel? Using the Enve 3.4 now with Chris King hubs and thinking of switching to the Roval CLX 32s, but interested in other options. I have Hunts on my other bike and like them a lot, but it's QR and I don't want to deal with switching the hub each time I'm going to ride a different bike.

Excellent frame weight... Darimo needs to make a post for this tarmac .. 163g fork negates the light frame

Do you mean the seatpost? That's really only 50g heavier than the Schmolke or MCFK and I'm above the rider weight limit (need to weenie myself!). The fork is also 10g lighter than the Emonda (and Enve options). That being said, the Emonda frame weights 645g which is a crazy 140g difference.

The Emonda 135mm seatmast cap and bolt also weighs about 125g. Trek forks also come in a little taller when uncut because the same forks are used for H1 and H2 head tubes.

I have an annoying clicking noise coming from my seatpost. If I clean everything and put it back into frame with carbon paste and blue loctite on bolt (6,2Nm) it stays quiet for about couple of hundred kilometers. Then it starts to make clicking noise when riding from saddle and it seems to get worse. And the seatpost stays at the same height. When standing it is totally silent. I have tried different pedals, checked the bottom bracket and crankset. It is definitely coming from the seatpost because it always help when I clean everything and re-assemble.

Does anyone have similar issues and what have you done about it? I was thinking about less torque or more torque but haven’t really tried yet.

Are you sure the torque wrench is accurate?

^ I have calibrated it and should be very accurate indeed. But now that you mentioned it I do it again just to be sure.

I also had a clicking sound with every pedal stroke. I thought it came from the crankset but I found it came from the seatpost and from the rear hub. I reinstalled the seatpost with Carbon paste, put some grease on the thread of the bolt itself (not on the clamp) and went a little over the advised torque. Has been silent since then.

For the rear hub I just reinstalled the lockring after putting some grease on the thread. I can’t understand they don’t put grease on the thread at the factory.

Good luck 👍

^ If you could share the torque you used for example via private message it would be perfect

edit. Thank you Kayba for the private message! I am too noob in this forum to send private messages...
