Default No Bose Offered on 50th?

I am just about to lock my build on my 50th and my dealer informed me that Bose is now not offered on the configuration. They are checking to see if Bose is now standard equipment or just not being offered. Has anyone else run into this issue. If this is due to a back order and nothing else, I am now left to select between the stock system and Burmester.
Any thoughts about the Bose issue and if not available, stock versus Burmester?
Thanks...

Thanks. Has anyone had this issue come up for their orders on their non-50th's? I am wondering if Bose is back-ordered for all cars?

Mine came with the Burmester but the Bose was certainly an option.

Thanks. Bose is an option on the configurator. It does allow you to check it off.
At this time, when the dealer put in the order, Porsche is not allowing one to select Bose. They have reached out to Porsche. It is either that Bose is now standard (doubt it) or on back order. I am now getting the Burmester rather than the stock radio but would have preferred to save the $ and purchased the Bose.
Has anyone who placed an order this week on the 50th or any other 911 run into this issue?
Brett, thanks for your input. Always great to have a dealer's perspective. Any answers from Porsche?

Still waiting on an answer as to why the Bose system is no longer an option on our internal system....

Is this is only an issue for the 50th anniversary? Or for all new 991's on order?

Any more info on this?

I'm now seeing this on the config tool as well. My build sheet clearly states Bose, but when I pull the config up on the posrsche site, no Bose. However, it's still figured in the price, so there is that.
